Steakhouse
The Stockyard is a classic American Tavern that has served delicious steaks, seafood, and drinks to the Greater Boston Area for over 40 years. We take great pride in the quality of our food with beef that is aged four to six weeks to develop exquisite flavor and tenderness. We are a scratch kitchen - all food being prepared with the freshest and best locally-sourced ingredients.

Stockyard Classic American Tavern features the infamous Al Capone bar, and the largest U-shaped bar in the city.

Open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, we provide both public and private dining along with a 150-car parking lot.

Celebrating Birthday !! Good experience. Waitress Sara was efficient and personable. We have been going to the Stockyard for many years and it is nice to see an energetic restaurant that is trying to maintain their long time standards in the Community.

Overall a pleasant experience, however the waiter, who had a very nice personality, was not attentive at all. Food was not prepared well - our lobster was over cooked and our steak was undercooked - since our waiter wasn’t around we could not let him know we had issues (especially getting the steak refired). Given how many great restaurants are in Boston, we will not be back.

Easy parking. Just off I-90. It was a slow night, butI I asked for a quiet spot. They offered the outdoor patio or a back room indoors. Service very good and strip steak great. Will return next time I am in Boston or Cambridge.

The way you serve your martinis makes it difficult to get them cold enough, as in shaken and served immediately. Perhaps the waitress is allowing them to sit because it is iced, but it’s not cold enough by the time it gets to the table. We had several at our table. Thought you should know.

We love the Stockyard - its retro ambiance, the great food, bar, service and price point are always a home run. When we want comfort, a great steak and sides, and great conversation with friends, we head to the Stockyard.

We were on our honeymoon and this was one of our last stops. The clam chowder was delicious. I had haddock which was good, I just didn’t know what to expect.

Stockyard is one of our favorite restaurants and we have dined there dozens of times. The quality had been variable over the years but recently sustained at a good level. For some reason Sundays tend to be of a lesser quality both at the levels of produce and cooking. Hopefully management will take notice.

My family was seated at a table next to the kitchen. Needless to say it was very loud.
The server was too preoccupied with other guests or was just overwhelmed to focus any attention on our table. My daughter’s filet was over cooked and had to be sent back. After that the server was virtually invisible. Did not come back to see how our food was -the sides that we ordered were barely warm. Did not ask if we wanted refills on our drinks until the table was cleared and we asked for the check. Very disappointing!

We hadn't been here in a few years and we were pleasantly surprised. Pork Chops, Steak and Lobster tail were all cooked beautifully. Sides were delicious and the waitress was great. All in all a wonderful time!

It's always been a favorite. We hadn't been in over a year, found we'd be in the area, so took the opportunity to return. We found it was just as good as we remembered.

Rating is really 3.5. Cocktails and onion soup were excellent. Entrees (mostly beef) were ok not great. Sides were very average a huge disappointment. Deserts were large and Ok. Service was Ok. Noise level was high. In general maybe slightly above average for the cost
