    The entire environment was awesome! The wall of televisions to entertain you while you eat is spectacular! The food is delicious, seasoned to perfection! Had a really great time with friends here before a Celtics game at TD Garden. Will plan to dine here for future game nights!

    Didn’t put the bruins game on TV until we had to ask even though it was the whole reason we were there and we’re told by a bartender to just “wait”. Fries came out bland. Patty Melt was very good. Only salvaging aspect is when our server saw us watching on the phone, she immediately went and got someone to change it. Should be more people like her.

    Banners was fantastic! It is the perfect pregame spot for dinner and drinks. We set a reservation about a week in advance and we were not disappointed by any means. The new short rib is to die for and as always the buff chick dip is - chef's kiss.

    I thought the appetizers were good. The burgers were overcooked and pretty dry. The service wasnt great and it took forever to even get a beer. Cardinal sin in my book for a sports bar.

    Our poor server had too many tables! We had a party of 11, we had missing meals, missing drinks, chasing him for drink reorders. Supervisors probably could have been bringing out food to help but saw them standing around. I do understand being short staffed but disappointed with lack of service and lack of supervisor intervening. This was my first and definitely my last time at Banners.

    Sadly, the waitstaff still appears to be in short supply. Before the B’s game, service was adequate. (Food was delicious btw) seated at a table after the game, however, the waiter didn’t return to take our beer orders before we had to leave to catch trains. I hope with time this improves. I will be back. Thank You for providing this forum.

    Servers need to take out the dishes/plates once the food is finished. This is very uncomfortable for the visitors and happens to every table. Is also uncomfortable to receive the bill as soon as you don't want to ask for anything else. Is a "gentle" manner to say "get out of here now".

    main course never came out. instead manager came over and apologized and provided hand written name/email/phone to reach out to him next time we came back. he comped our 2 appetizers, but quite a horrible outcome/experience. missed the first 10 minutes of the game in the process. only reason to go back would be pre-game, but not worth the risk of missing action even if they comp something next time. will stick with the bars/restaurants in the area. north end restaurants are more in touch with gameday timeliness than banners. also, waiting in 2 lines and being stopped by 3 rounds of security guards in bullet proof vests to get inside was something else. We had a confirmed reservation for 4, the rest of the party was seated, but they still demanded that I check in with 2 separate host desks to enter the restaurant. What kind of process is that? By trying to be classier and and safer than some "garden bars," they make the actual experience the worst i've had. Go to Tavern in the Square/Alcove/Ward 8/AnB Kitchen for restaurants or bars that won't make everything miserable.

    We came here before a bruins game and expected a tough experience due to the volume of crowd, but we did not anticipate the poor service from the waiter or cold food. Our appetizers came out at different times, which started off the night. We had ordered pretzels and Buffalo chicken dip to start with beers and a pumpkin martini. We were told by the waiter that the only beers and drinks were on the single sheet of paper he handed us. He kind of chuckled but apologized as he did. No problem as they were busy. For entrees we ordered fish and chips, fall salads and two burgers. We proceeded to see the pretzels come out first with the salads which wouldn’t have been an issue if the salads were correct. When we mentioned this to the waiter, he didn’t apologize and told us it was the correct salad. We proceeded to get the Buffalo chicken dip with the rest of our meals. The fish and chips were the only meal that came out at room temperature (if that). The burgers and fries were cold and when we mentioned the appetizers coming out with the entrees, the waiter apologized and said he never heard of a restaurant doing this before. The pumpkin martini which literally tasted like 99% cream. When we mentioned this to the waiter, he completely passed by the comment and didn’t offer another drink or apologize for it. My wife wasn’t given silverware and when she asked about it, the waiter mentioned he would grab some, but instead proceeded to walk by our table several times before my wife took the initiative to grab her own silverware. The waiter didn’t come back for almost ten minutes before we ended up having to ask for the check from another staff member walking by. Not a good experience overall!

    Great venue for dinner before an event at the TD Garden. Strongly recommend you get a reservation the second after you score tickets to your event. The space is incredible, huge TV screens and voluminous space is astounding. We found the menu perfect for the evening, variety of burgers/chicken sandwiches, etc. The pretzel appetizer was awesome. Very loud space, lots going on in this venue. I definitely think the space is suited for larger parties getting pumped up for a game or concert

    Great spot for a pre-game bite and a drink (or 3). simple access to security and ticket checks for the game. Just make sure you reserve in advance, you won't get a table otherwise, because it'll be packed. They take reservations 30 days in advance.

    Was seated upstairs, I was not told when I made the reservation that if seated upstairs, there would be a limited bar menu. Limited to just 4 lousy draft options. Food was mediocre bar food. Got the pretzels, cheese sauce was ice cold and mustard had a crust on top as if it has been sitting in that little cup for days. Waitress did not seem knowledgeable about the menu or bar options. They were out of straws? I’ve had much better bar meals for far less money.

    For the convenience of being right at TD garden I understood right away the pricing of the menu items. The server was friendly and was knowledgeable about the menu and even gave a suggestion about a beer that was her favorite when they were not able to make the drink I asked for. The only down side that I would say was the burgers that we had were way over cooked and we were never asked how we would like them cooked other than that minor thing the restaurant was great.
