    Great brunch! The server was very helpful to ensure that I was ordering gluten free. She understood cross contamination and offered me a salad instead of potatoes - which could have made me sick. Food was reasonably priced. I would definitely go back.

    Bruch at the Bostonian Public House is iconic. The menu is excellent and the Bloody Mary bar is outstanding. Our server was both efficient AND personable. I highly recommend the Bostonian for brunch.

    Excellent place. Love coming here. Food is amazing!! Every time!! Service is stellar too!! Worth while all the time. Only thing I didn’t like: We had a group of 15 and they wouldn’t accommodate groups larger than 10. So we made it a 10 and a 5. The lady checking us in, refused to let us run it through a single bill. It HAD to be split into two. Didn’t make much sense and made it more difficult on my end when it comes to accounting in the end (supper x2 with guest, same evening). Should have been able to accommodate this. None the less, this didn’t really change our experience my group had. Definitely a place to go and enjoy a great atmosphere met with excellent food and service.

    Our party was late, but they were able to accommodate us, which we appreciated. However, the food was not great. The bacon frittata had no salt/flavor. The children’s mac and cheese was swimming in too much American cheese, which congealed really fast and was hard to eat. And the avocado toast was underwhelming. The hangover burger was pretty good, though.

    Food so good. I had the salmon; my husband the pork chops. The accompanying vegetables so well done. It was a little chilly in the restaurant so recommend a jacket. The prices are consistent to what we have found at most Boston restaurants… a little more then what we are used to at home. The delicious food is worth the price. Highly recommend

    From start to finish experience was amazing. We had a lovely server who was knowledgeable and attentive. Food was delicious For appetizers we enjoyed Clam chowder and the Burrata with grilled focaccia. Entrees we had the Crab Crusted Cod and the Lobster Roll Dessert we finished with the lemon tart which was really good. Loved the crust it had - so good! Our cocktails were Gin & Tonics (The Botanist) and the pours were perfect. Can’t say much more if you want a nice meal out in Boston with a great menu and vibe. This is the spot.

    We were in Boston for Labor Day weekend and wanted to get some (touristy) Boston Staples (clam chowder and lobster rolls). We also needed to get brunch before our ferry to Salem. BPH was just a few minutes walk from the ferry lading. BPH hit all marks…food was great!

    Overall it was great. We sat outside but from what I saw the inside looked wonderful and didn’t seem loud. The hostess was fantastic and kicked off the whole experience. I think I remember her name being Meghan. She asked again on the way out which was nice, it tied it all up in a nice bow. Our waiter was really good but she was the bright part and besides our sticky Korean ribs she was the second best part of the experience. I’ll recommend this restaurant to all my friends
