Lucy's is modern neighborhood restaurant and tavern located in Adams Village in Boston's Historic Dorchester. Lucy's name pays homage to Lucy Stone, who was a pioneer in woman's rights and a Dorchester resident. Our menu consists of fresh, local cuisine focusing on an elevated comfort food and a gastro pub menu. We focus on hearty New England fare, ode to Southern cooking, awesome burgers and globally influenced dishes. We feature a full bar with 27 draught beers with a focus on local Craft breweries. We offer wine on tap as well as a thoughtful glass and bottle program. Our cocktails change seasonally with fresh, local ingredients and support local Craft distillers when possible. We also feature over 40 different whiskeys. Open for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch our guests can expect a warm and inviting atmosphere featuring a four season outdoor dining area.

My meal came out cold, ordered a burger. I could have received a warmer better burger from McDonalds across the street

Arrived late for reservation, but was seated promptly. Had called ahead advising them I would be late. No problem, they said, we’ll sort it out when you arrive.

I have passed by the restaurants numerous times and finally got a chance to come with a group of 5 for Saturday Brunch.
I loved my Chicken and Waffles (first time having them ever). The sweet potato and pecans in the waffle batter was wonderful! I will have order them again!

They have fun unique cocktails, and a good variety of appetizers and mains. The atmosphere is nice, it’s very open with high ceilings. We went for dinner but we definitely want to try the brunch!

The food was amazing. Loved the salmon and risotto so much. It was way too noisy in there though. Could not have a conversation.

The ambiance, dessert and service is very nice. However the food was mediocre. We were a party of eight and the food was rather Luke warm and lacked flavor. How do you get a Taco wrong? I would skip Lucy's American Tavern.

We all enjoyed our meals. Steak tips, salmon and salads (caesar, beet and kale) were very filling so much so we brought the rest home and finished it up the next day. The hostess staff is very friendly and our server Mary is delightful. We will definitely return.

Overall the food was great - highly recommend the steak tips with mashed potatoes. However, the cinnamon donuts were rock hard and tasted super stale.

Valet parking only is a bit weird for a "tavern", but I assume it has something to do with limited parking. Otherwise, great pub atmosphere & phenomenal food.

Valet parking attendant was surely and said my car would be towed in spite of the fact that it was parked in the lot of the next door bank. Noise level was brutal which forced my wife and I to yell across the table. This was our first and last time going there.

I have been here three time and always the food is amazing and the beer choices / drinks are perfect. This last time I had gone with my family, 3 girls 5 and under. The server could care less about us. She was pretty bad and took forever. Never came over to see if everything was okay. I was pretty disappointed. I will definitely come back to give it one more go

We've wanted to try Lucy's for a while, but always found the wait to be too long. We made a reservation this time and are so happy we did! The food and drinks were great, service was friendly and efficient. I think we've found a new casual favorite ... the burgers were among the best we've had, and the fried pickles were fantastic. We can't wait to go back and try some more menu items!

The salmon burger is outstanding! Great selection of draft beers too. Our waiter, Ryan let us sample a few before ordering. We had an open table rewards which no one knew how to deal with. Paul, the manager, went out of his way to learn how to accept and apply the rewards. Think open table needs to make this more user friendly.

We saw this on Phantom Gourmet and thought we would give it a try on our way home from Boston. We love the look with the barn board and garage door that are probable used during the summer to provide outdoor seating. The portions were generous and the waitstaff was attentive. Great menu choices. Can't wait to go back again.

Very Good food. Great service. The manager came by to help deliver our order (4 people) and had a sense of humor. My only complaint - and it is minor - is that the music is too loud. A slight decrease in the loudness of the music would help the ambiance significantly.
