i love the fish tacos. mildly spicey. the tater tots were PERFECT. and the one reason i keep coming back here is the in house ginger beer. they make this there as the spice for a Russian Mule. but, though its not on the menu, i always order just the ginger beer. its spicey, and is my favorite drinkt here. i wish they bottled it

We love B and M and go there frequently. Love that the menu has been updated and is a little more "hip". It has never been outstanding like the sister location in S Boston but has been adequate for a local suburbs spot. Beer selection is excellent. The food is quite good, not amazing but good. Again, hard to find amazing in the suburbs. WHY? I only wish they would offer some vegetarian options. I eat seafood but no meet and always have to choose the seafood since there is really nothing vegetarian. Last time I chose the butternut squash, bacon and blue cheese pizza. Yes, as a vegetarian, the bacon was a splurge. I still like it though I don't eat it much. This was a huge disappointment. The crust was thin and overcooked, very dry and crispy. It tasted like a pre-made frozen crust that was overbaked. The blue cheese was so over powering, I couldn't taste anything else. Comments were provided to the chef and I chose not to take home the leftovers. We were graciously offered a desert on the house which we declined but so appreciated. My husband's burger was good - just needed more seasoning on the meat. We will continue to frequent B and M and are excited for more improvements to the menu and PLEASE, come vegetarian entree options.

Food was too salty (2 different entrees). The nachos had nothing but cheese. We only asked that they leave off the peppers. We ordered mudslides $8 each but then added an up charge of $6 under the listing “espresso martini”. The waiter didn’t explain it and we had to ask why there was an extra drink. If wouldn’t have been a problem if we were told ahead of time

Friendly, welcoming atmosphere— we went there on a whim with our girls, 9 and 4 years old. Brandon, our server, was so nice and right on the ball. He helped us make decisions, was very accommodating for the kinds of food we were interested in, and never made us wait nor did he rush us. He set the pace for a very comfortable experience.

The food was outstanding— we were all happy with how delicious it was, even for the girls. Well that shouldn’t be a surprise, these days sometimes you get more flash than flavor. The mac & cheese was homemade, we had the shepherds pie (also homemade), and the most incredible scallop marsala we’ve ever tasted. The marsala sauce was very slight and complementary to the scallops, unlike many other places that drown their food in the sauce.

We can’t wait to go back.

We wanted to take our daughter to dinner for doing well on her tests. The waiter made the night! He was amazing!! Attentive, left us alone, but knew when he was needed. We were one of the only ones eating outside, so it would be easy to forget about us out there, but he didn’t. I think I saw out waiter more than the one for the other table that was out there!!!! The host was great as well. Definitely will be back!

Sat at a high top in the bar area and had a great experience. We are from the area and found out there was a new menu and chef - we were pleasantly surprised with the upgrades done to the menu and had a great meal. Beer list is also fantastic.

Pretty good bar. Has better than average food and their drink rule. The waitress we had didn’t know everything about the menu, but we had some really complicated dietary restrictions. Overall, nice place; but the floors are sticky everywhere.

Had short rib Mac and cheese that was incredible. My wife said the bathrooms were the cleanest she ever used. Steak was awesome. Had two meals, mussels appetizer and two desserts for $65. This place I has gone to the top of our restaurant favorite list: Will return for sure.

I had the Short rib Mac n Cheese, it was delicious. Fried pickles as an app we’re good too. Ultimately the best part was the service, it was quick, but not too quick and the staff was fun......it took us a minute to figure out that our waiter was also the person who sat us. He laughed as much as us when we put it together.

Went for a late brunch. Although it was not outstanding it was definitely good enough to make me want to go back and try their regular menu. The service was very good. I had the Southern Benedict and the eggs were a little overdone otherwise It tasted fine. Next time we go we'll either sit at the bar or maybe outside. It's nice to have a restaurant nearby that has outdoor seating. They are few and fare between in this area.

Food is good. Was disappointed that it was not clear that Brunch was in process on Sunday. Chose to go because the review of the menu items on-line looked good for a lunch. Stayed because there was enough to choose from for all.
some of the furniture should be checked - the bench/sofa I sat on was ripped at the seam. Tables are close together so it is difficult to move around and get in and out of. Space is set up to work with the beautiful fireplace that is in the middle of the "dining" room.
Overall, food is good, service is good and would return again - not on a Sunday (unless brunch is the desired choice!)

Food was fair, pickles were very very undercooked - pale and floppy, ranch was flat/missing something - like store brand. Cod with risotto was a great idea but was SO salty. Burger wad basic but fine. Server was ok, she forgot to take our dinner order after the appetizer. So, we'd finished drinks, appetizer, had to ask to order dinner. Checked in to see how things were by the time we were about 75% done (not because we eat really fast). Kitchen was slow getting food out.

We showed up at 9pm with an extra 4 people wanting to attend our reservation (12 total!) and they were able to quickly set us up in a perfectly sized space in the bar room. Food came out fast, and was delicious! I always enjoy the relaxed pub atmosphere, and good food here. I put moderately loud because while it wasn’t super busy when we arrived, and relatively quiet, we were the chatty Cathy’s bringing up the noise level a notch. Whoops!

Nice table by the "fireplace." The menu was limited but the fish n' chips was decent. Waiter was efficient and pleasant. There was a large party dining nearby with at least a half dozen young kids so the noise level was unpleasant but that certainly isn't a reason not to dine at this establishment.

Seemed like they were definitely understaffed. Our waiter was visibly running around, out of breath and very quick when Passing by our table. Also, the wrong food came to our table three times. Everyone was very nice but it seemed unorganized.
