I was a regular visitor of CBC, drawn by its excellent selection of beers they brew, including four standards and a seaonsal menu of four to five other beers. Food is good, but the food-to-price ratio is average.
However, service leaves a lot to be desired. I've been many times where service disappears mid-meal, or is lackadaisical to begin with. I do understand how busy waiting can be, but there's no excuse for customers to have empty beer glasses while the waittress chats on end with a coworker. The last straw was this weekend, when my party was promptly seated on a not-so-busy afternoon, waited five minutes before hailing the hostess to track down a waiter for us (perhaps one of the ones chatting nearby) and then leaving five minutes later without so much as a "I'm sorry about the wait, I'll be right with you" from anybody. Given the many excellent places to enjoy beer in the Boston area, I will certainly not return to CBC again.
