Our food was amazing. Everything we ordered exceeded expectations. Highly recommend the brussel spouts app & the mushroom ravioli entree. Beer selection is extensive and the server was very knowledgeable about everything. One of the best spots in Southie to get dinner.

The restaurant was awesome, trendy and the music was so good. The food was amazing but the waitress SUCKED. We waited 25 mins before anyone came to our table to take a drink order.

When we sat down the side plates were dirty and the cups where filthy. When she finally came over she proceeded to tell us how slammed she was and that she agreed the plates are dirty but the cups are fine! I was shocked! We Placed our drink orders,a app and asked for water. Drinks came another 15 mins after that so we had been sitting there 40mins without a drink, the app came we still had no clean slide plates.

We finished our app and she still had not come over to check on us and we had not ordered our main. Finally she came over and we ordered our main, she left afdter taking our order leaving our dirty plate on the table and we had to got to the BAR to order our own drinks.

meals came out awesome! so good. we had finished our main meals when she came over i asked for the bill. Took her mins to come back with it we where there for over two hours simple because we where waiting in the waitress. we had one app and two main food came out so QUICK but service was SLOW!!

Manager and all staff met our every request with a smile. We were there on a busy game night and our experience exceeded our expectations. The food came out in a timely manner, server was friendly and manager made sure we had the best seat in the house for the big game. Highly recommended and we will be back soon!

Local 149 was fine. It's an overall average kind of place. I would love to see a second salad on brunch menu. So many eggs and heavy things. My husbands avocado toast was a total miss. The bread was just bread and not toast and there was a light schmear of avocado pulp on bread. No slices of avocado or any hint of an actual avocado. My salmon was nicely grilled and our server and the host were friendly and attentive.

I read some prior reviews and have to say we didn't have any issues with service. In fact, it was timely and attentive, just perfect. Food was really good ... Tuna tartare, panko cod, and short rib canneloni were all excellent. Beer list was also impressive. If the noise level could be brought down a notch it would be 5 stars all around.

Meeting our daughter for early dinner. Close to UMass Boston. Great local place, very cool atmosphere and great music. Menu was very pleasing to everyone. Calamari had more fried peppers and lemon than calamari but batter was delish! Burger, steak tips, pork belly sandwich, and hot chicken sandwich were all so good. Great eclectic drink menu. Service was spot on. Def will visit again.

The fried calamari appetizer was average. The main menu was very good. I had the parmesan crusted cod with a mushroom risotto. The cocktails were vey good as well. The noise level was deafening. The TV(s) sound was turned up instead of off and the full patronage had to talk over the TV's.

love everything about this place especially the breakfast tacos!! I get them every time I come and I also get the fried Mac and cheese balls because they are insanely good. This is my fav brunch place in southie. Highly recommend for brunch, date night and a cozy bar to hang at to watch a game.

Service was absolutely horrendous. Waited 20 mins before being approached by a server. Made eye contact with a server and tried to flag her down without success multiple times. Was about to leave when we were finally approached. Decided to just get an app and leave. The vibe and ambiance were very nice but the service completely ruined our experience. Probably wont return.

Part of me does not want to let anyone know how great this place is because I don't want it to become crowded with limited availability! It's great. We love it - the food always delicious, kids welcome/family friendly, decor is awesome, location is easy to get to, service always on their game, not pretentious at all...
