    Lobster Mac & Cheese was excellent and very large portion. Shrimp cocktails perfectly cooked. Poutine was a great starter. Outdoor patio very calm.

    The main problem we had with our visit to Bostonia was the noise level. Could not even have a conversation with the person sitting directly across the table from me. Otherwise the food and service were very good. But probably would not return because of the noise level.

    Great meal at Bostonian Public House! We requested outdoor seating, but it ended up raining the entire day of our reservation. The restaurant wasn’t able to accommodate the outdoor seating request, but they called to let us know which we though was very nice of them to do. All of our meals were great and we would recommend Bostonian Public House to anyone visiting the area. Thank you for taking reservations!

    We always enjoy our visits to Bostonia Public House. Our most recent trip we took our parents for brunch before a show at the Boston Opera House. Everything was delicious and being big Bloody Mary fans, our parents LOVED the Ultimate Blood Mary bar experience.

    In a great location, but very average food and slow service. In all fairness, there were a couple of "parties" going on so those groups took the attention of the servers.

    We went there for brunch on a Sunday. The Cinnamon Toast Brunch cocktail was excellent, as were the avocado benedict and ham benedict. The strawberry shortcake pancakes were also good, but they ran out of white chocolate chips and typically a strawberry shortcake has whipped cream but this did not. Service was great, but it was pretty noisy on the main floor by the bar. Overall a good experience and I would go back again.

    10am brunch on Sunday; arrived 10 minutes early. Not many customers yet. Most seemed to have 11am reservations as restaurant was crowded when we left around 1130. Food was good but our food took at least 45 minutes to arrive to our table, with my meal arriving 10 minutes after that. Again, they were not busy. Waiter was not attentive at all. We had to get his attention for everything- more coffee, straws that he forgot for the bloody Mary’s, to ask where my food was and even to ask for the bill. His constant conversations with the bartender were more pressing than his customers.

    We were visiting Boston and decided to go here since they had reservations and the reviews were good. We were not disappointed. The drinks were great, food was amazing and fresh and service was fast and good. The noise level got a little high when a large party came in and we’re waiting to be seated. But definitely recommend going here when visiting Boston.

    The warmed Lobster Rolls braised in butter were phenomenal! I didn’t get a chance to put it down because it was so delicious and fresh. It featured both large claw pieces and smaller chunks. The sweet potato doughnuts were heavy but still very good.

    The food was tasty. All three of us in our group ordered the same thing (eggs your way with potatoes, choice of meat and grilled english muffin), two of us received breakfast potatoes, one meal was completely without potatoes. One of us got the grilled english muffin, the other two received multigrain toast. We thought this was very odd, we had to ask for the potatoes. Never received the english muffins. Service was a bit slow. Overall it was a fine choice for brunch.

    Came in on a Saturday evening with my spouse and a friend- both have gluten allergies. The food and drinks were both incredible, drinks were yummy and service was great. The restaurant was busy but not overcrowded and we didn’t feel rushed at any point. The sweet potato waffle fries were fantastic- a must try.

    My husband’s first brunch in Boston and it could not have been any better! Everything was perfect, the cocktails (get the Bloody Mary bar, it is a meal in itself), the oysters (they actually gave us 13), the meals (portions were huge), and our server (she had only been there a week, but she knew the menu and was super fun).
