Some of the best food around (even more so considering you're at the crossroads of BU and Fenway's sports bars). Recalls 1920s era without feeling too forced or kitsch. Service is attentive and informed.

Selection of drinks is small but of high quality, and when you pair your drink with the food, that's where the magic happens.

Always worth a visit when the wallet allows.

Just at the bar before a Red Sox game. Not much for draft selections BUT many many foreign and domestic choices. A VERY knowledgable bar tender who gave me info on many beer labels I'd never heard of. PLUS one of the better Calamari's I've had. I've been there before and never been disappointed.

I prefer this place to the nearby Island Creek Oyster Bar. The food is very good if a bit funky. As a foodie, this is the reason why come here. The service superb. The beer selection was surprisingly diverse.

Very small and focused tap list with a fairly large bottle list. This place is more known for it's cocktail program and food. Both are amazing. Somewhat on the high end of the pricing spectrum but worth it for a couple cocktails at the end of the night.
