I love Stoddards. I've been several times now. Great and interesting menu. The food is excellent. The bar and beer selection is great and the staff is very knowledgeable when helping you select a beer. I'd highly recommend it.

Great late dinner stop
Food was great. Cocktails excellent! Service also excellent. The only issue I had was all the 2 tops were really close together and it was loud so I felt like there wasn't any privacy. But for a fun later dinner it was terrific, just maybe not for romance.

Great Cocktails, Ok food.
I had been to Stoddard's once before for drinks and they absolutely blew me away. Awesome cocktail and beer list. So I decided to take my girlfriend there for dinner.
While the drinks were once again outstanding, the food in our opinion was so so. Yes it was good, but for the price and the way the staff made the menu out to be and how the chef operated we were expecting better. While it wasn't bad by any means I expected more for the price.
I would recommend Stoddard's as a good place to go for cocktails but not to eat

I needed a restaurant near downtown crossing and found Stoddards. I picked it mostly because it had deviled eggs! The staff was pleasant. It was comfortable and quiet enough for a conversation.

Nice menu that has the basics
Nice menu that has the basics (burgers) and the unique (venison and rabbit). the wooden bar is quite a site. Nice service, I just wish the restaurant seating area was a bit bigger, but that is a small price to pay for a great meal.

Awesome experience. Having
Awesome experience. Having just moved to the area it's overwhelming to decide where to eat. This place was a great find. I was impressed with the menu options, not your usual list of foods, the beer and cocktail list was impressive and the space was amazing. I also enjoyed the staff, very friendly and helpful.

Excellent food, history, service
Girlfriend and I were in Boston for her work and staying at the nearby Hyatt. Came to Stoddard's based on Yelp reviews and were more than pleased. I had the rabbit and she had the tenderloin, both were amazing. The fondue was great and I loved that it came with tons of vegetables! Cocktails and beer selection were also amazing and we both definitely went home happy. Our server was excellent as well, friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend this place to all.

The food was a bit pricy but
The food was a bit pricy but absolutely worth it. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed this plate and the drinks were amazing too. I had the seared scallops with polenta and bacon. The scallops were cooked to perfection and the polenta, which I thought that I did not like, had a stiff creamy texture that was unbelievably wonderful. The Moscow Mule I ordered tasted delicious and had plenty of alcohol in it. As I mentioned before each plate is a bit expensive (and so are the drinks) so while I would not call this a place to go on an average Tuesday night it is a great spot to celebrate a birthday party or an upbeat occasion.

Impeccable food and aervice
By far the best brunch we ever had. Went here for my husbands 30th birthday breakfast and they even put a candle in his French toast! Incredible food, best Bloody Mary, and great service and ambiance!

Enjoyed our Dinner
Food was delicious, some of the best we had during our 10 day vacation. Dined fairly late on a Tuesday night so loud noise was not an issue (as others have mentioned). I had the duck which ranked right up there as the best I've ever had. Husband had the tenderloin which I thought was fantastic and he proclaimed it very good. Unanimous that the creamed potatoes were to die for--don't know what their secret is but the best potatoes ever. Rhubard with mango garnish dessert was delicious. Only disappointment was their coffee machine was broken (?). So for a cup of coffee modified a latte from the espresso machine; paid the espresso price and no second cup offered. Waiter was very attentive and talkative. Definitely would return.

Everything was great!
This was my first trip to Stodddard's and I was pleasantly surprised! My waitress was awesome along with all her colleagues! The food was fantastic! Since I am a wine drinker, I was happy to find out that they had an extensive list for my taste buds. I think I now have a new favorite spot to visit on the weekends!

Bartenders were great. Try the Moscow Mule - it's fantastic.

Gastro-Pub with Charm
Whether you're in for the wide selection of old-timey cocktails, the delicious oysters on the half-shell and other eats (ranging from pot of pickles to fondue to duck dinner), or the cozy interior (the dominant intricately-carved wood bar, exposed brick walls, street lamps, and black and white prints), you can't go wrong! It can be a little loud and cramped with an after work crowd, but they had no trouble seating us a little earlier than the reservation and thoughtfully pulled up an available stool for an impromptu third.

was a fine meal before a night at the theater. Took awhile to get a seat and service even though we had a reservation. beer selection was fantastic. food was good. better than you would expect from a tavern. would go back.

one of our favorite places
We are always happy to dine here and this meal was no exception! We thought the food was excellent, as always, and the Moscow Mules are off the hook. The bartenders are so great there. Fabulous spot.

My wife and I like to take date nights when we can, and on this night we were in the city to see the clossing show Wicked at the Boston Opera House. Our waiter was new that night, but not new to being a waiter. He offered great food recomendations, and wine choices. The food and expierene along with a great atomsphere added to a great night. Only two bloks from the show.

I will definitely eat here again
I went for the drinks but stayed for the experience. My date and I were not expecting the quality of food we had. I ordered the steak frites and my date the Stoddard burger. The steak was tender and juicy and the burger was something of a masterpiece: from the roll they use to the construction of the burger itself. It was perfect. The drink selection only helped the dining experience. They were carefully crafted and very delicious. I would very much like to enjoy another meal there again. Soon.

A nice find in the theatre district
Found Stoddard's when looking for someplace new to eat before the theatre. Looked like a noisy pub when we first walked in, and this impression was correct. But the food was excellent! Short ribs, fish and tater tots, and rib-eye were all done perfectly, with nicely prepared side dishes. Server was knowledgeable and fun. Wish the noise level was lower. But we'll definitely go again.

I have been to Stoddard's a handful of times now, and the food is always creative and delicious! The cocktail list is also great- a fun mix of classics and new creations.

Hits the mark
My third time dining here before heading to a show. Excellent beer menu. Our server, Corey, was knowledgeable and professional. The food was delicious and well executed. The short rib melted in your mouth and the portion was large. The rib eye cooked to perfection and the charcuterie was well balanced with meats and cheeses. The kitchen has been consistent in its execution of its tasty dishes over the course of my last 3 visits.

been to stoddard's a few times!
great place to eat in opera house district; tasty and not the same old menu; amazing draft beer selection, good cocktails; and i love the architectural details and decor! Working my way through the menu, all excellent!

Having reservations on a Sunday night was critical as people without were being turned away at the door. No waiting for our 5:30 reservation! We all ordered the Stoddard burger (some with fries and others with onion rings that looked like doughnuts!) except for one who order the fish and chips. We all loved our food! We had drinks (Moscow Mule and Old Fashioned), an IPA, and a nice Malbec. The bill was $220; with the booze we drank, that felt about right. The only downside was the service; we had to call the waiter over several times; only once did he come over unbeckoned even though we were right in his path. It took a long time to pay, and we were rushing to catch a show... Overall, VERY pleased and will come back!

We went for lunch and the staff understood the need to be in and out in an hour. The food was very good. The fish and chips delicious. The charcuterie appetizer fresh and gave a lot of variety. The place was lively with business lunchers. I would recommend Stoddards.

Any place that has deviled
Any place that has deviled eggs and warm pretzels/mustard is a winner in my book. It wasn't just that, we loved everything about this place. The decor, the food, the service, and the laid back atmosphere. The salmon over beluga lentils was just what I needed after stuffing myself with pretzels! I look forward to our next visit!
