Food was good, had the pulled chicken tacos. But was hard to eat without making a mess. Had to use a fork at times. They make their own beer which was good, but took a long time to get one cause the waiter came back to tell me the bartenders were very busy and my beer would take a while.

10 young boys - 8 adults before a show. Waitress handled this crowd well. Service was timely - food was ok. No reason to not go again.

Disappointing beers. Tried a few others and same result. The Titan Toothpick appetizers ($9.99) consisted of four rolled tortillas filled with meat and deep fried. Portion of avocado was laughable & bbq sauce tasted straight from a bottle of Kraft and salsa was extremely mild & bland. Best thing this place had going for it was service. Alicia (server)was professional... More

Wanted to put in an order for my food before I arrived at the restaurant. I called when at government center, took the train to boyslton and walked to the restaurant and still no one picked up my call. I was on hold for 8 min. The worst part is, when I walked in the hostesses were just standing and... More

We haven't been here in a while. Usually have good food and beer. They didn't let us down in those departments. Service was a bit off. It appeared that they were understaffed as opposed to our server being inept. She was good, but not the service we are used to. Table did not have tableware set when we arrived. Salad... More

My family and I recently visited Rock Bottom after seeing the Blue Man Group show across the street. The food, service, beer, and price was very good. My kids absolutely loved the bacon chicken macaroni and cheese. I had the Amber Ale which was a very good beer from their line of micro brews. Definitely a place to bring a... More

Great place, located just a block from where we were staying. Helpfull staff, the food was very good!! Excelent burguers and a large selection of beers (some of them homemade). A total surprise, especially when you were walking all day long and you need to eat something!

I made a reservation online a week in advance so they had a table waiting for us (group of 11). But it was a necessity because they were packed. It didn't effect the service to much and we got in and out in time for our show. We would definitely go back, the firecracker shrimp was amazing!

There were many empty tables. After sitting at the table for 20 minutes without being acknowledged by any waitstaff, I flagged one down and asked... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
