Located in the heart of one of Boston's most expensive districts, this place oozes class and money and banks and all the other stuff generally associated with humorless white people. Normally I would not be allowed in such a joint, but I just so happened to have finished a job interview and was clad in a fine 3-piece that was tailored for me, personally, by the experts at Sears.

The aesthetic is aggressively open and white (in the color sense, not the racial sense). It gleams like heaven, or the end of a detergent commercial. There's a bar in the middle looking directly into the kitchen and then high-top seats round the perimeter. Above the bar is a pegboard sign that announces the beer list in white, sans serif letters, as if they were sandwiches at a deli. It's a very cool touch, and thankfully it's also supplemented with printed beer lists.

The selection was broad and extensive, and while it was pricey it wasn't as bad as many other places in the area. There was nothing too horribly obscure on draft (Maine's Mo was there, though), although the bottle selection had some hard to find stuff at sky-high prices (50 bucks for a Bo and Luke).

So it's not exactly my scene, but it's still a very nice beer bar with some very nice seafood.

Just a fun bar, cool set up, and awesome staff. The food is excellent at for Boston an excellent price, the lobster roll easily the best I have ever had. At least 10 great beers flowing on tap, with a very good bottle selection also. Overall a great experience.

Thanks to a waitress whom I didn't get a name from, I stumbled upon Omnipollo- I appreciate that recommendation - they know what their doing at Row34 from Seafood to beer. Oh hey, Trillium is right next door too.

Located near Trillium in South Boston, this is a hard place to get into, but it is worth the wait. First off, this a restaurant first, not a beer bar. The food is phenomenal. I recommend the oysters...many varieties, all of them good.

The beer is varied and unusual. The bar, however, is short without much space.

This is great place to go for dinner with a great beer selection. Get there early to make sure you have a table.

Visited on 2/6 mid-afternoon.

The space is cool in an old factory that has been several different industrial tenants. Classic look, very clean. Service was excellent. I'd just come from getting beer at Trillium and they put my beer in their cooler to keep it cold. Beer offerings were excellent. They'd just run out of Maine Lunch and Tree House beers from a beer dinner earlier in the week. Had Trillium Sleeper St IPA and Jack's Abby Helles Lager drafts. Both were very good.

Only disappointment was the limited menu between normal lunch and dinner times. Plus, they are only open for dinner on Saturday. Food was very good. They have an extensive raw bar which I didn't sample but thought items looked very fresh. Would definitely recommend as a must visit.

Good vibe, a little spendy, but the food and taplist rocks.

Upscale establishment with a decent taplist and tons of great seafood. The oyster lover that digs good beer will be in heaven here. Apparently there are many in this crowd as this place gets absolutely packed.

The staff is on point managing the crowd and though it was crazy busy, we were able to snag seats at the bar in about five minutes. Food was great and a big bonus is that Trillium is located right next door.
