Cityside Tavern has been a staple in Cleveland Circle since 1985. We underwent a renovation in January 2020, now our space is rustic and airy featuring beautiful brickwork and barn-board from Maine. Our bi-level space features two bars, a separate dining room and an awesome roof deck overlooking Cleveland Circle
Our dinner menu consists of elevated comfort food along hearty New England fare, killer burgers and sandwiches. We also feature a lunch menu during the weekdays and a weekend brunch program.
We feature a full bar with a draft beer program focusing on some of the best local Craft breweries as well a cocktail program with riffs on some classics, as well as our own unique creations.
Cityside Tavern is the perfect place for large groups, semi-private events, watching our local sporting teams or just a chill night at one of our bars with our awesome team. We host Trivia on Wednesdays and Brunch on Saturday & Sunday. See you soon!

Great BC casual hangout. Good food. Varied menu-my steak ans avocado was delicious. Steak was warm and well seasoned-lettuce and avocados were fresh. I didn't like the fact they charged me $18 for my scotch & it clearly was $15 on menu, their website and yours. I finally gave up hassling about the bill. Won't return. Maybe college kids tolerate that treatment but not I.

Short staffed and not friendly. Took forever to get a drink and food. More of a bar than restaurant so we weren’t happy.

Loe Cityside! It's such a gem in the middle of Cleveland Circle. I thought it was just a tavern with some good rinks, but the food is incredible too! They're also super accommodating of food allergies which is great.

The service was great and so was the food and drinks. For a busy Saturday night, we got our meals in a very reasonable amount of time. It was a fun experience sitting outdoors on the upper level. Great ambience.

Great spot for drinks! They have a moderately sized draught list with some good finds, and some crowd pleasing cocktail options. Food hit the spot as well! They were to host our group of 8 which was awesome.

Good food. Had reservation. Without reservation would not have waited the hour for a table. Great ambience sat on edge of bar in a high top. Would go again when in area. Music on verge of being TOO loud. All else great. Food was very good. We (3 of us) each had a salad and they were perfect late night (830 pm) dinner.

The perfect spot for a first post-pandemic date. The restaurant is simple, but gorgeous, which put us right at ease. The food and drinks were delicious, we are already planning our next visit. Enjoy the comfort of delicious food and a safe environment as well as the beauty of this restaurant.

Wonderful, lively place to enjoy a meal! It has a very friendly neighborhood vibe, and is definitely a more upscale version of a tavern. The food quality was high, our waitress was attentive and we had a great experience here for Mother's Day brunch. We look forward to coming back for a more casual date night and hopefully getting a patio table!

There is so good to meet friends and family.
Atmosphere, foods, services are really good.
Because of Covid19, we should cash out in 90 minutes. But we can totally understand.

Cityside is a great neighborhood bar. Plenty of good beer choices and typical Americana food. Not too fussy and the staff is great.

Excellent food and service. We went for Brunch and they accomodated seating us far in the corner to be separate from other parties and to enable us to hear each other (there were a few rowdy morning drinkers present). Highly reccommend the chicken and sweet potato waffles. Very generous on the drinks. Ample parking nearby. Will definitely be returning!
