    The floors were dirty and getting to the womens bathroom is a serious fall risk even with grippy shoes. The grease was old and too hot, everything that went in it was overdone and had a bitter taste. The skirt steak was over cooked, and the chimichurri was way too chunky. The chicken in the Nashville Hot was burnt and bitter (again the grease), the chicken Caesar was drowning in dressing, the BBQ tips had zero flavor and the meat was tough. Additionally, they were out of the tiramisu. The apps were an ok price, but the entrees were not worth the money at all. The wait staff was nice and every time someone visited the table, even a food runner, they removed the old dishes. I will not be revisiting.

    the place was super cute and looked like a bar i’d come to almost every night if i lived walking distance. the staff was a little awkward and made the experience a bit awkward but i still had a good time, the drinks were okay and the food was okay. the eggplant stacks are a must have, sooo good definitely try them.

    Was okay. Wouldn’t go back. Only high tables. My flank steak with chimichurri was seriously lacking in chimichurri, but it was cooked well. My friend was disappointed in the lamb burger. Asked for tsatsiki, got hummus. Waited 5-7 minutes for them to “find some cream downstairs” for our coffee.

    Love the food and the drinks, parked along the water, easy and not too far away. Be aware that you are in the flight path of jets landing at Logan and it is loud until you just get used to it. Also, no dogs, even outside.

    Came with my partner, 4 year old son, & 2 week old son. They were very accommodating with us especially with our stroller. Very nice staff with great food and drinks. Will definitely be coming back more often as we had a great experience for our first time. Chimichurri Mussels were very good, so good we ordered it twice.

    Food was amazing. I went for brunch and had the chicken bacon ranch flat bread and the breakfast tacos. Was very satisfying and had good flavor. The one thing I was not impressed with was the Bloody Mary. It had limited taste but I guess that's what you get for a $5 Bloody. You get what you pay for on that.

    Food and drinks were very good and atmosphere is fun pub style. Only downside is slow service with not enough staff but that’s the case in many restaurants these days. Don’t be in a hurry when you come here and then you will enjoy. Lamb burger is fantastic!

    A sports bar with character. Took my two tween boys here to grab dinner, was a hit. Food is a cut above most bar/pub offerings. Street parking can be a challenge, but there is parking a few blocks east near some kind of park.

    Environment and aesthetic is cool and fun but the service is eh along with the food. Food took 1.5 hours to come out and they forgot a meal. Waitress never came over during this time, had to flag down someone else. We were apologized to but it wasn’t overly busy at the time and we had reiterated more than once that we were still waiting for one of our meals. Not a bad restaurant, just lacking in a lot.

    Once the waitress found out we weren’t ordering drinks, she became very uninterested in waiting on our table. Had an empty water glass the whole time and only was able to get her attention to get the check. Wouldn’t go back for dining, but bar seemed fun

    Great place to gather with friends for Monday night Trivia that starts at 7pm. Great service, awesome managers, and they always have a great rotating list of beers every week, as well as seasonal cocktails that always keep the menu interesting.
