Great food, albeit a little pricey, but it's worth it. Went for lunch and had the burger w/fries. The meat was amazing. A little dry, but extremely flavorful. The fries are, hands down, the best fries in Boston.

I splurged and got a new drink on the menu. It was a cranberry cocktail and it tasted like Christmas in a glass. It was amazing and I would highly recommend it

John and I wanted salads for lunch , and boy were they delicious. My added steak tips were melt in your mouth perfect. Cooked rare, they were exactly what I ordered. Yum! John’s salmon was also very tasty. This is our favorite place for lunch when we stay at the Custom House . Our visit was not our first, and certainly will not be our last.

Brought my husband for his birthday and had a poor service experience. It took 40 minutes to get a drink after sitting. Our appetizer was delivered and finished before we got a beverage. We had to ask for the olives for our martinis - twice and I never got mine. We were never offered bread. Our sides were forgotten so our steaks arrived with no sides or utensils to eat them. Nothing super horrible and the food was good but when you pay $80 for a steak, you want to eat it while hot and with sides.

Seriously not worth the money on any level and the service was atrocious and has nothing to do with understaffing as too many people were standing around doing nothing. Seriously better meal to be had at an outback…

We were here in Boston for a date-weekend, so we chose S&W for our first night out. The weather was crisp, so we walked the Harbor from our hotel. As we approached the restaurant it was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season!! The hostess greeted us at the door and was very friendly.

The bar area was busy and we actually like sitting at the bar for dinner, so we asked if we could switch our seating. He accommodated our request and said that was fine!!

We were looking for a nice steak dinner, craft cocktails and ambiance.

The food was fantastic!! We split the Gorgonzola crusted steak!! Grilled to perfection (medium). Sides of crispy Brussels and Cauliflower *and* amazing onion rings!! Oh and we started with a Burrata salad with pesto and cherry tomatoes….served with fresh bread crostini and butter. Omg. I would order ALL of that again!!

Cocktails were good. No one can screw up my husband’s Makers and Coke. I ordered an espresso martini. It was good, but I’ve had better. The presentation was very pretty though. :)

Here’s the part I was disappointed with….
The service was not very attentive….and it was 9:00pm!! We like the bar for the extra attention we feel we get there. We wanted to ask about the city and things to do. And usually the bartender is a great source of fun information! Here….not so much. We only ordered one drink each because we were really not asked if we wanted anything else. In the bar’s defense, maybe we are just used to a little more friendly “talkative” staff when we go out. So if you want a very no-nonsense, no interaction sort of experience…..sit at the bar!! ;) Maybe we would have felt more welcome in the dining room. Also, even though the bar itself was slowing down, it still took almost an hour for our entrees.

Overall, the restaurant itself was lovely and we would certainly eat here again!! Just not up at the bar.
