The atmosphere and décor at the Sunset Grill and Tap is almost identical to the Sunset Cantina. Lots of breweriana adorn the walls, same basic color scheme. The Sunset bars are beer bars with sort of a TGI Fridays feel. The bar is toward the left and back of the place. The bar area is dinky compared to the overall size of the restaurant. In holding true to the reputation of Sunset, I was served a spoiled Dry Hopped Rogue Red that I was so looking forward to tasting. The beer was sour and looked as if someone stirred in a couple spoonfuls of mud. Of course I sent it back in favor of an Anderson Valley IPA that was pretty tasty. I ordered dinner, blackened catfish which was actually very good. It got a bit crowded, someone was sitting in my bar stool each time I returned from the bathroom. Funny thing, with all those beer choices I only found a couple things I wanted. I was interested primarily the draughts. Some of the bottles were a bit pricey, $11 for a bomber of Stone IPA? WTF? I found the Sunset Grill and Tap was worth a try but I won’t hurry back here. Visited 18 Sep, 2003.

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.
