Just stopped for a brief visit so that we could rest from having been sightseeing. Had a good beer and that was a good rest.

Waiter/Bar Service was friendly and fast. Food and drink were great. Atmosphere was what we were looking for, a real "people" place with very comfortable tones. Will be back in Boston and will be eating and enjoying here again.

Visited for a beer after work. Good menu. No happy hour specials. Place was dead. Prices were average. Really nothing to write home about, but also nothing to complain about.

Popped in to check the place out on our last night in Boston and I wish we never. The draught Stella tasted bad almost stale. The menu was boring and unappealing. Place felt very strange as if your not welcome. I will not be back
