My fiancé and I were both violently sick after eating at this restaurant. We were on a trip and not locals to Boston. I did email the company to let them know of our experience and have yet to hear back!

Was part of a party of 6 (4 adults and 2 children ages 8 and 10) with a reservation before an event at the Agganis Arena.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals and the service was very good.

Solid food. Savage clams from PEI were exceptional. Steak was juicy delicious and the sautéed broccoli with chili flakes was the surprise side hit.

They ran out of prime rib at 545pm Fathers Day, 3 of us ordered it. We ended up ordering 3 rib eyes and the manager was nice enough to give it us at the prime rib price. He also gave us a free dessert sampler platter as well. What started out as a disappointment turned into a very nice Fathers Day dinner. I would highly recommend the Stockyard for their food, professionalism and need to make the customer happy.

The steaks there are perfect, but the hidden gem is the seafood; if you haven’t tried it, give it a try. My husband’s cod was so good that I had the rest of my steak wrapped up, and we shared another order of the cod. It was my birthday and their chocolate cake is classic. I don’t eat sugar often, but it was delicious.

We had the cod and the salmon, both of which, were incredibly delicious. When eating out, I tend to frequently order salmon, but this was, truly, the best ever. My daughters cod was melt in the mouth perfect. Beautifully flavoured side dishes too.
Service was excellent, friendly and welcoming. Our waiter was very attentive to our needs, including my special requests, without being intrusive. The bartender remembered and reinvented my cocktail drink from a year ago!!
We were seated next to the full and busy bar, but conversation was easy, without raising our voices at all.
Overall - a lovely evening of absolutely delicious food and being very well looked after. Highly recommended! See you next time I’m in Boston!! Thank you.

I think service can make or break your opinion of a place and based on the service tonight, I would not want to come back here. Food was hit or miss. Ingredients seemed fresh but drinks tasted artificial, creme brulee was just off, corn souffle in the lobster pie was flat and greasy tasting. Scallips were very good and the seafood tower, the seafood served was almost frozen. Presentation was nothing to write home about. But worst of all was the service. Rude, ignored us on numerous occasions and then there was an incident when one waiter brought the table empty plates for the group appetizers we ordered and then when the apps came out, another waiter cleared all those plates to "make more room at the table." What are we supposed to put our appetizers on??? Then our waitress brought a whole cake to the neighboring table-someone at our table noticed that she had her sleeve in the frosting of the cake and discreetly tried to get her sleeve out of the cake. The waitress reacted by flicking that person's hand away and making a rude gesture at her. Service staff killed the evening.

2 adults and 1 small child for a special occasion. Food terrific, service not very good. A Friendly and polite reception by staff when checking in, Seated quickly, that's where good service ended. Our waitress was less than attentive to our table, maybe because we had a small child, I have no real idea why. I won't bore you with a detailed list of the poor service, but will touch on a few. 1) We like to start with water and lemons. 4 waters, 1 lemon, please keep in mind there are 3 of us. Had to ask 2 additional times for more lemons. 2)Ordered as a side, lobster mac n cheese. When Food order finally came, the waitress asked how everything was almost seconds after the food arrived, then instead of just apologizing for not putting in our entire order, tried playing it off on us to ask "so where did we leave off with the lobster mac, did you want that".. come on, really! 3)Fast forward to repeatedly having to stop her to ask for drinks or additional water. 4) desert, it wasn't until she came over with the bill to realize that desert had never arrived. We did eventually get it, but over 2 hours at this restaurant seems a bit excessive, particularly when people who sat after you had already gone on with there day.
Now for the food, when it came, was delicious. Appetizers; Shrimp cocktail was very large and fresh tasting. Presentation of sauce and horseradish in individual ice holders was a nice touch. Seared scallops were large and very tasty. Main; kids meal very nice portion of fries and chicken fingers. I'm told salmon was very good, my haddock with crab crust topping was cooked very well, baked potato was enormous. Dessert, when it came, was ice cream all around, a Sunday for myself. Tasted like premium ice cream,a claim of Belgium chocolate sauce was suspect as to its authenticity. Meaning I've never seen a fresh hot sauce crust over the ice cream. It's supposed to stay liquidy.

The food was excellent. This was our first time there and we chose this restaurant more than two months ago, it was a birthday get away for my wife’s 50th birthday and we had seen an afternoon Red Sox game. The food was excellent, however the service was not. We almost felt as though we were being reprimanded for ordering too much food, and when I wanted to order an extra side dish, specifically cream spinach, our server told us that we probably had ordered enough food already. I had never been, shut off, The food was excellent.

The food was excellent, however the service was not. We almost felt as though we were being reprimanded for ordering too much food, we had ordered 2 apps and a cup of chowder and a small salad, and when I wanted to order an extra side dish, specifically creamed spinach, with my entree which is family style, our server told us that we probably had ordered enough food already. I had never been “shut off” from food. I was quite disappointed that my $36 steak came with nothing and I love vegetables. To be told not to order something was very unusual. However she then had no problem letting us order two desserts to go. That was disappointing to say the least because we don’t get out much especially out of town like this as we are from Connecticut and we were looking forward to eating a large healthy meal. We hadn’t eaten much all day. Food excellent, service, not so much !
