Horrible. The food was not good. I asked if the onion soup had an ale base or a beef broth base and instead of saying he would check he just said he didn't know. Burgers were not cooked to the right temperature so they had to go back. Waiter was not paying attention.

You accepting reservations was what made this happen. I'm glad it did

With a reservation, we had to wait 1h for our table. Even after that, service was slow andninxomoelte, we had to ask even for water to be brought to the table. Very unprofessional, especially the front house staff and the management.

Such a great, casual meeting place. Our waiter was close to psychic in figuring out the best beer, wine and food for each of us.

Sunday brunch was delicious. Lots of food options from salad to soup + omelettes and a carving station. Great place to eat and watch the games. It gets a little noisy, but that's to be expected.

Meh. Food was good. Margaritas were better. Service was prompt and responsive. We sat outside -- loud traffic noises and an unruly child made more so by a parent who ignored the brat. Inside was loud and cold. Probably would try another place next time.

Disappointed in this place. Food was good but I made a reservation and they tell me they have no room inside so they have to sit us outside. We didn’t want to sit us outside. The guy is telling me there is a group coming to watch the game so he doesn’t know what to tell me. I’m sorry but when I made a reservation that comes precedence. I shouldn’t be dismissed bc they weren’t organized. So we went to the bar. What a joke this place.

Our visit to 730 Tavern was not great. We came for lunch on the Friday of Labor Day weekend, which also was the last day of restaurant week. It was relatively empty when I arrived at 12, but soon filled up. The service was very poor. Our waitress rarely visited our table, and we received the wrong drinks/food multiple times. After we received our entrees it seemed she completely forgot about us, and we sat for at least 15 minutes with the wrong dessert at our table, and the plates from our appetizers and main courses still crowding the very small table. They only had 1 host, 2 waiters, a bartender, and one runner working, and were clearly overwhelmed. The food was just fine, it definitely was prepared in advanced because of restaurant week, and didn't taste super fresh. The sangria was good, but beware the pitcher is huge! The restaurant week pricing was a good deal, but the cost was still too high for the experience we had. The place is nicely decorated, and I hope they were just having an off day with service, but unfortunately I won't be back.

The salmon tacos were amazing: the filling was moist and flavorful, and the tortilla was soft but not soggy!

We had a reservation for outdoor seating, we got there early but they did not look at the reservation and just sat us inside. Besides that the food and service were good.

Fourth of July, kind of slim pickings. Service was spotty and server was very difficult to understand. ALL food ordered was poor and service SLOW. The only saving grace was fajitas which didn’t come with tomatoes or salsa but some ?cabbage on the side. Mac and cheese was dry and crunchy, added pork belly was so over cooked couldn’t get fork through it. Burger ordered medium was very well done and didn’t sit well. Chicken pesto sandwich also over cooked and chewy. Reuben meat was crunchy dry and mostly bread. Should have sent food back but we were hungry and in a hurry to get to fireworks. Packaged uneaten food and gave to homeless on corner. Starters of fried pickles and buffalo chicken tenders ok but ribs were again dry dry. Good beer selection but wouldn’t go for food, go elsewhere.

Food nice and a great amount of fresh variety. Waitstaff pleasant but seemed inexperienced. This is a great bargain and value. The Tavern would do better service if they had one person that replenished drinks and another that picked up plates especially on Father's Day. MA people like their coffee and keep it coming waiting for it to brew is short sighted. Perhaps carafes of coffee each table. Nice family atmosphere for Father's Day.

Good basic tavern. Service took a long time, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt because the Stanley Cup Final was that night and I'm sure inside was rough! Lovely outdoor seating area. Food was okay: chicken fajitas were mostly onions, and the black beans were basically just heated up canned beans with queso on them. But it was only $15 for the entree so overall not bad!

I have dined there twice, each time the food was excellent. The ambiance is very nice. The decor was fun. The service was very good, even when it was busy.

Sadly, it was a busy day when we visited 730 Tavern. We were seated 30min later than our reservation time. They seemed short-staffed, overwhelmed and disorganized. Surely they can do better.

Good option for a quick bite before a sporting event at MIT. Our food was delicious and arrived quickly. The beer list was decent and menu had variety. The room was surprisingly low volume for a sports bar which worked out great for talking during dinner. Service was friendly but could have been a little prompter especially as it was early and not very busy.

Quick dinner before a show. Food fine. TVs large, music loud. In other words- sports pub.

Brunch is delicious and very reasonable! Top Chef! excellent quality and great variety of food. Best Buffet I have seen in years around Boston. Also, the staff was completely warm and friendly and made our day so relaxing! We made reservations for Easter Brunch and will be back for the regular menu, which also looks fabulous.

Solid pub/American food at a good price point. Enjoyed the drinks too. +10000 brownie points for having the Impossible burger! Wouldn't mind a vegetarian entree too though (:

Very good food and courteous, efficient staff. Additionally, the fact that I enjoyed their green beans - even though I have never been fond of them - is a testament to their selection of produce and care given to cooking.
