A word from Cask 'n Flagon
The now World Famous Cask 'n Flagon began as a small neighborhood bar known as Olivers. What was once known as the little bar on the corner of Brookline Avenue is now a landmark location for diehard Red Sox fans, college students, locals and tourists. Mention the Cask 'n Flagon anywhere, anytime to anyone and chances are they have probably been here.

    Server was definitely busy and a little shy, but nothing to complain about. The food was prefect. I got the rib eye the Saturday night I went. It was seasoned perfectly and the temperature on the cook was great. Definitely would go again!

    Had reservations - had to wait in long line and table not ready when arrived. Disorganized check-in process at the door. New waiter that did not bring us any drink refills and very slow to even check on us. Mediocre food - nachos were pasted to plate and soggy under cheese. Could not seem to get water glass refilled after asking. Just not a great choice at all. Later I even had a stomach ache - wish I had eaten at the ballpark as it would have been better.

    From out of town and was recommended this restaurant before we visited Boston. Make a reservation especially if there is a baseball game taking place and you planned on sitting down and ordering food. Great food great service great place.

    Five of us ate at the Cask n Flagon in Boston before a Sox game. Everyone was very happy with their meals. We were seated within a few minutes of our reservation time. Service was fine, even though it was very busy. I recommend the brisket - it was really tender and tasty.

    I had made a reservation a number of weeks ago, and as it turned out, I really didn't need one. In fact the greeters and wait staff didn't seem to know what a reservation was. Regardless, we actually got in early so it worked out real well. Our server was courteous and friendly. Since I had attended many previous games at Fenway, we decided to forego buying tickets, and watch the game from your establishment. It worked.

    My reservation was meaningless as they basically sat my sons and I at the first available in the order we arrived. Greeters were unfriendly and seemed bothered to be there! Everything else OK, but nothing to write home about! We hustled to get there by cab because we wanted to be assured of making our reservation (we had tickets for the game). Next time in Boston we will look elsewhere for dinner spots...too bad because it is a great location.

    With a name like Cask & Flagon we didn't know what to expect - maybe an Irish Pub? or a Gin Mill? But the food menu was very broad - honestly some of the best BBQ we've had outside CT. The Fish Tacos were also praised. The restaurant is right across the street from Fenway. So we were also pleased to find that even on a game night, where we arrived 40 minutes after our reserved time, they made an effort to prioritize us and get us a table. So the night couldn't have been better - until the Cubbies completed the sweep of the BoSox with a 16-9 route! Come for the experience but stay for the food.

    made a reservation specifically to ensure we had a seat to watch World Cup game before the Sox game; unfortunately, restaurant did not account for our (and a few others) reservation. After fruitless wait, headed down the street to Yard House for an awesome late lunch and viewing experience

    Z B Band was performing so many people were around-why I MADE a reservation to begin with. Reservation @3:45pm. Gave my name she took out the reservation list- very short. The waiting list (different list) was VERY long. We were next Great! We were early so we waited. Checked back a few times. Watched many people be seated.At 4:20 she said "You haven't been seated yet?" No.The other girl who pulled out the reservation list.My name was near the top(not crossed off), 8-10 were below mine crossed off. I said" were they seated before us?"She was quick on her feet and said none were parties of 4(most tables were for 4)Really?Seated t 4:35pm.Why bother? Why take a reservation if you don't honor it.Would have been seated much faster without it!

    You might not really think of the Cask, such a notable sports bar, as having amazing food. But really, we are never disappointed. The fish & chips is consistently one of my favorites-- though I was sad when they took the Will Middlebrooks sandwich off the menu (pulled pork & mac and cheese pressed between bread-- such an indulgent sandwich). We have even taken family with an 8 year old and 5 year old there in a pinch for dinner (no, the Sox weren't in town), and the kids menu met with their approval. We were also far enough away from the bar that noise/language wasn't an issue. The staff refills drinks quickly, but also doesn't make you feel like you're getting rushed out. Highly recommend!!

    Drinks were great. They accommodated 9 of us and the bill was reasonable. Only downfall was the spinach and artichoke dip, VERY small portion especially considering what you pay, BUT it was delicious! Great local hot spot before and after Red Sox game.

    I reserved a spot at this popular Fenway bar/restaurant because I was meeting up with a group of friends visiting for the weekend. The service we received was very poor for any establishment. The hostess was very rude, she ignored my answer after asking me how many people we had in the group, so I had to repeat myself several times. She continued to lecture me on how I was 5 minutes late for my 6:30pm reservation. It was very ironic because the seating area was completely empty. The waitressacted like we were crazy every time we had a question. The food came out fine and tasted fair. The place is also very loud, which is fine for a sports bar. I will not be coming back, and will not recommend it to anyone.

    I went here with my husband and we sat outside on the patio. We waited for about ten minutes for a server to approach us but nobody did. A few servers walked by but didn't acknowledge us. After 10 or 15 minutes, I caught a server's eye and raised my hand to encourage her to come over. She shook her head and walked the other way, so we got up and left.
