So glad we gave Clery's a shot on a Saturday night. It's a great in-between bar. By that, I mean it's not super fancy or a sticky dive bar. They have the ground floor which is comparable to Clark's in Faneuil Hall (another favorite) and if you feel like dancing, they have the option of heading downstairs. Definitely need to... More

Good food but grumpy and inattentive service. Not busy at all so really no excuses. Had to track down waitress for silverware, water several times and for our bill. Most of the staff was just standing around.

We came here for a small gathering and the waitress was very rude the whole time. I ordered a grilled cheese sandwich that was not grilled at all... worst 20 bucks spent!

So we've been having some just ok dinner experiences in Boston while visiting. This was the best food so far. We went at happy hour and it was pretty loud and crowded but I guess that is to be expected. The group I was with had a brisket grilled cheese, steak bomb, pretzels and grilled asparagus. I got what I... More

We had lunch at Clerys in between Christmas and New Years. The food was OK, not great. The service was fine, there were not many people in the restaurant at the time. The Tuna Nachos were very weird, I would stay away. The Reuben and the hamburger were fine.

Stopped by for a cup of soup and the New England was outstanding. Large place with a number of people eating at the bar like ourselves and everyone seemed happy. Looks like a place for locals.

Not bad. Just a bar. Nothing special, nothing terrible. Okay prices, okay fries, okay service. What more can be said?

We happened to come across this place 2 days ago when we were looking to have dinner. Walked in and asked to be seated for dinner and the 3 staff basically looked at us and said there was some triva something happening (like we were to understand what that meant as visitors). They did not even take the time to... More

I had been here before just to hang out and have some drinks. But, we were looking to kill some time and decided to go in for dinner. Wow! I was pleasantly surprised. The food was amazingly good. We started with nachos. The corn chips were really good and filled with flavor. The toppings were really good and it all... More

We found this restaurant as we were walking from our holiday accommodation which was nearby. We were greeted by their very friendly staff and had an excellent meal and beers. The waiter was extremely helpful and attentive and recommended a couple of good beers for us to have with our meals. Service was rapid.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
