    They were featuring some German Fare to coincide with Octoberfest and the German Style Mac & Cheese dish was very good. Good portion size but not overwhelming as some pasta dishes cane be.

    We had a 6:00 pm reservation on Friday..called restaurant to say we would be late because of heavy traffic. Very pleasant staff and when we arrived (20 min late) we were still seated in minutes.The dining and bar areas were both very busy. That was wonderful! Wait staff was friendly and prompt and meals very good and prepared as requested. We would return again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/28/2011
    The food was plentiful and tasty, but delivered to our table cold. Our server was non-existent most of the time and forgot to bring things numerous times (e.g. we had to ask for water 3 times and never were able to get a refill). She was clearly overwhelmed and didn't have a smile or side word for us the whole time we were there. Regards ambiance, the restaurant is large enough to accommodate everyone: boisterous bar, breezy outdoors dining, quiet enough away from the bar to have conversation. We will probably give the restaurant a second try as we're guessing the experience would have been great if our server had been better.

    The food was very good and served in a timely manner. The restaurant was full, but we never felt rushed. Moving the bar area into the center of the area made the tables be placed closer together. Moving between them was not always easy, and I found the restaurant to be somewhat noisier than it used to be. Our server was fabulous. Sad I cant' remember her name. Great ale, and the dessert (carrot cake) was delicious.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 9/9/2011
    Nice brew pub restaurant. Good design with lots of polished wood and brass. Menu offered lots of pub grub choices. The lobster and shrimp tacos were unique and excellent. The beer list was pretty good. I tried Rock Bottom's own IPA, which was clean-tasting with nice hops. They also offered a nice selection of both bottled beers and brews on taps from other brewers. Very good selection. I would come here again. It's a very convenient place for a quick (and not overpriced) dinner before going out to either the Majestic or Wilbur Theatre. Both are right around the block.

    Awesome restaurant. Went with my girlfriend who had never been there before and she had nothing but praise for the place as I did too. It was my first time there since the renovation and it was one of my favorites before and has only gotten better. Everything was great. Two thumbs up and a high 5 to you guys.

    We were happy it's open again. It's perfect for us to go to with a toddler, but it's also a big bar good for after-work crowds, and it has a nice, big outdoor area for warm weather. I went many times before for lunch, perfect choices. This time, we got a starters combo, which was delicious ! The sides are very big, if you order a separate side. I was a little disappointed about my fish and chips, because while warm, I think it stayed a little too long on the kitchen counter (with the warm lamps), and my fried cod was not totally crispy. Still, I will go back - just order something else.

    Our waitress was friendly, suggested great menu items and was very attentive. The nachos were great (but huge!) and then she told us that we should share a bourbonzola burger since we were so full from nachos. We're very happy we did. The burger was outstanding. We had a scottish ale beer that honestly was the best beer I've ever tasted (but I'm not a huge beer drinker). All in all a great time!

    Great food and service in a bar like scene. Very busy as it is in the heart of the theater district. So glad I used Open Table to reserve, the night we went even though it was early (5:30) they were advising others of an hour wait for a table.

    Great location for pre-theater dining, but it should not take 15 minutes to get a cocktail. I don't much appreciate cumin in my veggie burger. Drink menu is pretty good and my guest loved the beer.

    Place was very busy - but we were waited on promptly. Good beer menu and our waiter was very knowledgable in the different beers. I had the Cajun Fish Tacos - very good! Loved the fact that it was wrapped in a crips blue corn tortilla then wrapped in a soft flour tortilla - made it easy to hold/eat yet still had the great cruch of the hard taco. My partner had the Turkey Reuben which had plenty of Turkey in it. Was also very good!
