Truly an exciting and overall fantastic experience. Our server Tara was ever the professional and could not have been more efficient or courteous. Food and beer were outstanding and service time impeccable. Much thanks to all your team for making this visit with some very important friends a memorable one as we will all share the stories of how great our time was. Thank you so much for the hospitality and even a shout out to Alex as well who made a point to just check on our table that everything was going well. First class all the way. Sincerely, Steve Thibault

Pizza is actually some of the best in Boston. Definitely the premier Detroit style in the city.

Our bartender (sorry, didn’t catch her name … pink shirt) was fantastic. She had informative things to tell us about everything we were interested in and made great suggestions. Pizza was amazing.

This was our second visit to Night Shift, we came back again because we so enjoyed it last time. And it did not disappoint, it is our new go to place in Boston. The Detroit pizza is delicious, and the rosemary truffle fries outstanding. My husband enjoys the beer too!

Heard this place had great reviews, so we decided to check it out. Got a last minute reservation at 6:30pm. We were seated promptly. After that, the service was absolutely terrible. Our waiter brought us water after about 5 minutes, and told us he’d come back. After another 10 minutes, he checked on the tables directly next to ours, but never came to our table. After we did finally end up ordering, the food took about 20 minutes or so. And quite frankly, it’s nothing special. It lacked any sort of seasoning and was just bland tasting. Once again, the waiter never stopped by and asked how everything was. He did however, check on the tables surrounding ours. When we were ready to get the check and leave, our waiter was nowhere to be found. I had to ask the host and busboy multiple times for the check. When the waiter finally brought the check, he explained that it was very busy. Granted it was a Saturday evening, I get that. But to check in on all the tables surrounding ours and never once acknowledge us is absolutely unacceptable. I don’t care how busy you are, you don’t ignore your customers. I’d suggest going to any other restaurant along the wharf. They’d probably have better service and food.

I’ve been to their main brewery in Everett several times and decided to check out their Love Joy location. It did not disappoint. All the beer was good as always but their food was delicious! I got one of their Detroit style pizzas which was perfectly crispy on the edges. My friend got one of their bbq sandwiches and ate every bite! Our server was friendly and always made sure we had a beer in our hand. Definitely recommend this location and will be coming back. Cheers.

Pre-Garden event so arrived at 5 PM. Had a reservation so there was no wait. Wait staff were attentive but as the place filled up it took longer for service. Good beer choice and the short rib sandwich was really good. Fries were also piping hot on the plate which is a plus since that is a big pet peeve (cold fries!) of mine. Got down in plenty of time for the B's game so overall a very positive experience.

Took the kids before Dude Perfect concert. Was nervous about bringing kids to a brewery but it was definitely family friendly! Great energy, friendly staff. Food was great and very affordable- menu is not overwhelming and there is something for everyone. The location is gorgeous! We will definitely be back!

Good food & service, we enjoy the patio.
Wish you offered Coke or Pepsi for those who do not drink beer, Polar is great seltzer but do not enjoy their colas.
