I remember when this place opened and I used to live in West Somerville. I was a pretty regular customer. I've only been in there a few times in the last couple of years, but the beer selection has always been first rate, and the owners are quite active sponsors of good beer events. The food is good if you are into messy barbeque. The only downside is that the bar room is quite narrow and separated from the restaurant which means that a few dozen people standing will make it very packed in that area. The restaurant is always crowded which invariably means that there are plenty of people waiting in the bar area. The downstairs is a bit dark and low ceilinged for my tastes. Red Bones is a great place for people who like beer variety. On the way home, go to Elm Street Liquors just down the street for a truly impressive variety of beers to takeout.

Loved this place. Went here for dinner while visiting the Boston area. The atmosphere is absolutely crazy, We sat in the basement which is painted black with wild colorful paintings covering the walls. Most or all of them have aliens in them.Everything about this place says fun. Quality was excellent all around. Service was friendly and reasonably fast. We ate early but by the time we got our food the place was full and people were waiting to get in by the time we left. Beer selection was outstanding and the food was really really good. I had ribs and they were the best I've had since we started this vacation and were as good as what we get at our favorite BBQ Beachwood on the west coast. My husband had the brisket and it was melt in your mouth. I really enjoyed their beans which were black eyed peas in a savory sauce. The prices were a little high but not bad considering it's in the big city. We would go back again and again if we ever come to Boston again.
