Showed up for my 1st time sort of early on a Saturday evening, so it was not yet busy. We sat at the bar, which is my favorite spot. The place is nothing great to look at, plain tables on the right, with a nice U shaped bar on the left, featuring many, many taps, and a full displayof liquors as well. The table area reminded me of pool hall, but most of the tables were empty when we got there, contributing to this look. The woman working at the bar was very friendly, attentive, good spirited, and very helpful. Food selection was a little weak, withsome sandwiches and some entrees; I guess something for everyone, but just barely?
Beer selection on the other hand was great. Maybe 40 taps, and if you're a hop head, perhaps a dozen IPA's? I had Moylan Hopsickle, Racer 5, Hop Rod Rye, Green Flash Imperial! Also sampled a few others. My wife had the Schneider Aventiuns, yummy!
I had the veggie burger, which was sort of mushy, and herbal tasting. Not terrible, but wouldn't get it again. My wife had a "special of the day" prime rib sandwich which she liked. Actually, we started with fried calamari, which was excellent; cooked just right in a light batter.
The beer selection and service at the bar will draw me back. I just wish parking was a little easier.

I have been to some of the other beer bars on Boston and, while impressed with the tap lists, have generally had poor and very slow service. This place tops them all in terms of tap list and had outstanding service to boot. More of a neighborhood bar than a place to be seen. All members of our party loved it and we will be going back.

Don't waste time with the other pretenders (bars) around Boston. This is the best one I've been to. Great list of many beers from world class breweries. This is a place to experience beer, not to be seen at "a craft beer scene". Avoid the other "posers" and get to Lord Hobo ASAP.
