I've been to the sunset grill and tap a number of times. While more often than not, the beers are great I have orderd a few that were a bit off - either lines, or aging kegs

I haven't had much trouble with interesting beers being out of stock. They seem to reprint the tap menu as often as possible, but it just can't keep up. I'd recommend checking out the 5 freshest taps chalkboard by the bar before taking a seat. A lot of those taps aren't on the printed list.

The tex-mex/american pub fair menu is diverse but the food is unremarkable. It is priced for the college crowd. This crowd also tends to pack the place on the weekends, so plan to go early or equipped to deal with a packed pub.

Overall my trips here have been great. Huge selection, always adding new beers and the food is pretty good too.

Hard finding a time when it isn't busy, but worth the wait in my opinion.

With so many to choose from it hard to leave here without trying a few new things.

Best beer bar in Boston. Selection both on tap and bottles is amazing. Food has improved and is excellent. Nachos are the best I've ever had. Can't beat the value. Great place for any size party, especially large groups, who can get a table at the last minute. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. It's been a Boston institution for a quarter of a decade, and rightly so. You won't be disappointed.
