Great restaurant with a refreshing old Boston feel instead of all the plain and clean line establishments out there in the city. Cocktails are fantastic, fairly priced and boozy. Fun Place.

Interesting venue and surprisingly delicious with lots of choices. Shared the fried cauliflower app which was wonderful. Flank steak was great as was the Pork 3 ways. We would recommend should you be in the Beacon Hill area.

We ordered the calimari and the charcuterie plate for apps, calimari was excellent, charcuterie plate was just ok, small quantities of not very exciting meats and cheeses, the menu said it came with pate, but ours did not. I had the warm spinach salad which was really excellent and the poke which was quite good. the cocktails on the menu were good, but they were all way on the sweet end, with no specialty cocktails on the less sweet or bitter end.

overall, good food, good drinks good service, but not blown away. would go again.

What a hidden gem! A perfect ambiance for a date night, the waitress could tell we were on a date and even asked if we wanted to move to a round booth which was nice and romantic. A fun speakeasy vibe with good strong cocktails and some great flatbreads!

Kevin, the waiter, was fantastic! Very friendly and accommodating. The maitre d however, was just the opposite. Made a 9:30 reservation. Arrived a couple minutes late. The lobby was a literal ghost town! There was an older gentleman scoffing down an entree in the side dining room. Didn’t look up once. I either assumed he was the maitre d or the food was excellent! I started saying “hello. Anyone here?” He continued to scoff down his meal! I finally had my date call the restaurant. It wasn’t until the THIRD CALL the very hungry gentleman (who was the maitre d) got up from his meal which was now a plate that looked licked clean! When I informed him I had a reservation for 9:30, his rather annoyed sounding response was “You do know the kitchen closes at 10?” He sat us. The food was great and as I previously stated, Kevin the waiter was phenomenal! My suggestion is to send your maitre d to charm school or have him eat his dinner privately!

We had an absolutely fabulous experience at Carrie Nation, the cocktails were outstanding, incredibly original and delicious. Our server, Emma G., was an absolute sweetheart who made sure we were looked after the whole time. The atmosphere is really cool, the speakeasy in the back has a great vibe. I would absolutely recommend Carrie Nation for a fun night out!

Great for drinks and cocktails with excellent ambiance. Live music there is often fun.
However, I would not recommend for food: the menu is a short, strange assortment of foods that aren't that great

The food was very good. Will definitely go back. The only down side was I asked for 1 ice cube in my old fashioned and they charged me $3 for ice!!! For an ice cube! Maybe if it was the best old fashioned I’ve ever had I could look the other way, it was not. It was good, not great.

Our server Kevin was excellent. He was friendly and knowledgeable about the dining and cocktail menu. The warm white bean dip was delicious but should be served with more bread. We asked for extra but still could have used more. The speakeasy section of the restaurant was a lot of fun. Kevin recommended we check it out and it was certainly worth the after dinner cocktail.

Great food and a fun mix of dinner/social bar atmosphere and in the back and upstairs a younger crowd with pool tables and a bit more bustle.

Drinks were good except my parents ordered a 2015 bottle of wine and were given a 2017. If we wanted a 2017 bottle of wine we would have ordered one. The food was awful, undercooked vegetables, poorly breaded to boot. I would not go back to eat. Best part about that place was the speakeasy and decor.

First time here, and I loved it. Great ambiance, very good service, and the food was very good - selection, quality, and price. The taco trio was outstanding - best fish taco I've had - very generous portion of fish, and the pulled pork taco and black bean tacos also were quite good. I'll be back.

Recently moved into the area and stopped into to Carrie Nation for lunch. The ambiance was really cool (eclectic) and the food was0 good. There is a huge bar, looks like a good spot to grab a drink after work...

Wait a long time for my waitress to show up. After ordering appetizers, she disappeared for a while. Have to get a different waiter to take our order of main dish after we clean out appetizer plate. More waiting for food. She came by but was not aware that we already order our main course. There is the lack of attention but the restaurant is not packed, so don’t know why service is so slow.

Frank was so friendly from the start. We had a reservation for dinner . I had reserved a bigger table for my birthday. He made sure all night that we were taken care of. The food was amazing and drinks really good too! My friends had a blast as well . Dj was good but it wasn’t so loud that you couldn’t hear your friends talk which was nice

Service was unnecessary lacking, we were one of four tables at the time of seating. The server was blah, he got to us when he felt like it. There was over 10 minutes from sitting down until we were asked for drinks, was not impressed. Also, not a single smile to be found. The server assistant on the other hand was sweet as could be and she was simply presenting and removing our plates. Food was fantastic, drinks were great.

Nice place for dinner before a show. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. We were seated very quickly. Service was a bit slow, but worked with our timeline so it wasn’t an issue. Food was wonderful! Fresh and well seasoned. Portions were good, as were the prices. Overall a very happy with our choice and would absolutely go back.
