    We were seated near the entrance and the noise level from the bar area was extreme. Food was delicious; service was less attentive than expected.

    Food was great, service was greater. We had reservations, showed up early, and got seated immediately. I had the steak and it was a big portion for the price. My partner had the fish and chips - fish was fried, fluffy, and amazing. One of the best places we have been to.

    Lobster frittata was full of lobster! Our Mac & cheese lover loved hers. The Southern Buttermilk fried chicken sandwich was devoured. Only one of four dishes disappointed...the Strawberry Macademia pancakes were soggy. The service was poor, really long wait for even our drink order. Great gluten free choices but server did not bring the "roasted" potatoes that were listed with the fritatta, later explained they were fried so contaminated...would be nice to know that when ordering and be able to make a substitution. Also we never received our 2nd drink order...its too bad as we are staying at next door hotel & would have gone back!

    Brunch was good but not sure it was worth the cost. No booster seats for young kids so my child didn't really have adequate seating. Server was kind but unattentive at times. Overall an ok brunch. Not sure we will return.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the value on the shrimp. We do our best to stay competitive with our pricing. We will make sure to bring this to our chef's attention. We appreciate the honest feedback.

    Decided to go here for valentines after being able to get a last minute reservation. We got oysters, mussels and both kinds of lobster rolls. The oysters were fantastic and some of the cheaper ones in the area, and the lobster rolls were delicious. My boyfriend loved the muscles, they were his favorite. There was live piano music which was super nice, although the place was incredibly loud. But it was Valentine’s Day so we expected noise and we didn’t mind. Our service was not good. We were dressed casually so maybe the guy thought we wouldn’t tip but he was quite rude to us. My boyfriend put in his drink and the waiter said it would take a while in which my boyfriend as a joke said something along the lines of “don’t worry I am in no rush I have all the time in the world right now” to which the waiter informed us very quickly that we had a 1 and a half hour limit and couldn’t stay longer. We knew this as the reservation stated it, so it felt like he was annoyed and we were taken aback. He then promptly had us order our food and appetizers all at once, which again was fine but took over half an hour for the appetizers and over an hour for our main meal, when he had us on this time crunch. He seemed annoyed to be waiting on us the whole time and rarely checked in on us even though I saw him multiple times relaxing and chatting with the host. This wait would have been fine if not given the strict time limit. He then asked us for desert which we would not have time for given his insistence of us getting out on time, so we politely said no. The final straw was when we paid, he gave us a broken book that my boyfriend put his card in. Because of this when the waiter put his book in his apron, the card slipped out into his pocket. He then told us there was no card and we had to get our flashlights out and look around the floor for the card as he watched which was embarrassing. He then informed us it was in his pocket. Terrible. Delicious food though.

    What a complete let down! Bostonia Public House has always been a go to place for me whenever I wanted a spot to impress. We were a group of five for lunch - arrived and greeted by the bartender - he barely spoke during our interaction with him. Took 54 minutes for our lunch to arrive No offer of beverage refills One person only ordered the clam chowder which was “luke warm” when it arrived Food did not come out at same time One of the two burgers was not cooked as ordered Only decent part were the Greek salads Bartender eventually made his way to the table to say simply “had to deal with an issue in the kitchen” Terrible experience -

    Food: Excellent. I had meatball app and cod for main. Both were delicious. Large portions! App + Main is probably too much food for most people, so think about sharing. I was able to clear my plates, but boy was I full. I had 2 drinks - a negroni and a beer. The negroni was good but not the best (very subjective). The beer selection is quite extensive and I had a delicious craft beer. Did not look at wines. Service: Waiter was good, polite, and reasonably on top of things. Only negative is that I had to wait at the front desk for >5 minutes to be greeted by the hostess to check me in for my reservation, with no acknowledgement or apology or even a smile. It's a very small thing, but small things can matter in the overall experience. Atmosphere: Its a nice space. Dimly lit, but adequately so. However, its really loud. Piano player on the first floor. We were happily on second floor, but the overall acoustics were such that conversation was a bit strained. I was at dinner for two and had to lean forward to hear my friend. (My hearing is pretty good). Overall, I would happily go back, but might shy away if nuanced conversation is very important (because of noise level) - e.g., an important business conversation or first date. I was there with an old friend, so it was not really a problem. If I were the owner, I would look into acoustical treatments.

    The Bloody Mary bar was great. The staff was excellent about staying on top of refreshing food items for the bar. The food was not as great as it had been in the past. The avocado toast was piled with gritty beats and just one piece of bread. That item needs a complete reboot in terms of portion, content & presentation. The salmon bagel was together as a sandwich vs open faced, which those of us who got it ended up deconstructing it as it was extremely difficult to eat as a very awkward wide sandwich. It tasted great, but should definitely be open faced for easier eating. Our family member enjoyed the Greek salad with chicken. Our food took forever from order to table. The server was very nice.
