Went here for the birthday celebration of two friends. It was a Saturday so the place was packed and there was an hour wait for a table. This is to be expected, but it was colorful and vibrant. Lots of good energy. We ended up getting a table within 15 minutes and the service throughout the whole time was great, considering the place was packed to the brim. One of my friends even got a waitress' number.

They have a beer menu that is many pages, all seperated into styles of beer, with ABV listed next to every selection. Everything from Chimay Grand Reserve, to Schlitz. Even the coveted Sam Adam's Utopia that goes for $150.

All the beers that my friends and I ordered were served in appropiate glassware. Tulips for Belgians, etc etc. My only nay say, is that I believe my Chimay was served too cold, but I let it warm up for a bit.

Standard pub food with some nice twists. I ordered the Turkey Burger and it was good, very good. Hit the spot.

You pay for what you get. Expensive beer is expensive, and vice versa, but overall a good deal all around. I had a great time. Good friends, good food, good brew. Can't ask for much else.

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.
