I just visited this place last night for the first time. My group sat outside on the patio, as the weather was right. Service was spot on for our part of 6. Our server made sure no one had an empty glass unless they decided they were done. Pricing was about average for what I am used to, but I am used to Chicago pricing, so I am not sure if that is pricey or not for the area.

Box Bar has a full page draught list, and several pages of bottles, listed by country of origin. My complaint here is that for the uninitiated, it only lists brewery and beer name, so unless you are looking up each one you might be interested in on a smart phone, you are selecting blind. I have been to similar kinds of bars that have had a secondary list by style that has helped with this kind of issue. Also, they had one Gluten Free beer in stock, and it was not listed as such.

Had a friend that always suggested The Box Bar but never went, but we finally made it.

The atmosphere is German beerhall-esque with cathedral ceilings and large steins lining the main room. Behind the bar is a seemingly never ending beer cooler with bottles from all over the world. They have several options on tap from your regular choices to some rotating global choices.

A daily tray sampler is offered with consisted of Brooklyns Brown Ale, Celebrator Doppelbock, Flying Dog Doggie Style Pale Ale, and EB Pils. Not a bad choice of beers beside the Flying Dog. A pint of Old Speckled Hen was ordered after dinner. The pints are a little pricey with some pushing $7-8, but most in the $4-5 range.

The food menu is a hodge-podge of sports bar/family restaurant offerings. My friend and I both ordered a basic burger which was decently priced at about $7.

Overall, a nice place to drop by in Plymouth if you want some solid food choices and try a few beers.

Located in downtown Plymouth, The Box Bar is a really nice to place to eat and drink. I highly recommend their pulled pork sandwich, which is really good. They have a decent beer selection here and feature new beers once in a while.

In the summer the patio dining is quite nice. You have a nice view of the park and the fountain. Service was pretty good when I went last time.

It is a bit upscale in some ways which may be a turn off for some. I don't mind it so much because it isn't too bad here.

Great place to take the family or take the guys but for beer drinking in plymouth, I will always recommend liberty street brewing company.
