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.

Birthday

Probably would pick a different restaurant next time. May try lunch if in the area.

The potato seem fake.

Not much of a variety on the menu.

Could also be a little more cleaner.

Our steaks were overcooked but the waitress and manager went out of their way to take care of it and more than made up for it. We'll be back for sure. The way they handled the issue said more about the restaurant than anything else.

Pleasant neighborhood restaurant with very good food. A little pricey, e.g. if you get the steak. Great bar to watch sporting events if you are looking for a little community.

Pound for pound, dollar for dollar as good a prime rib as you’re going to get anywhere. Food is really good. I don’t give really anyone five stars on food unless my eyes are rolling back in my head. Great atmosphere. I would much rather have a meal there than any “higher end“ steakhouse where I have to mind my Ps and Qs.

Had dinner on New Year’s Eve. Service was great, waitress was very nice and attentive. We shared a ribeye steak, was pricey and didn’t come with any sides which was kind of weird but it was delicious and worth it. Would eat there again.

We've eaten here many times over the years. For the most part it's been a good experience. We had early reservations New Year's Eve(5:00pm). I and my wife usually get the steak tips which have been consistently good. They had a special this night for a porterhouse steak(can't remember the weight. 20 oz?). It sounded good so I ordered it. I asked for it to be cooked medium, which in the past has always been a little towards the medium rare side. No problem. But this time I received it medium well. No pink in the middle at all. Plus, the steak itself seemed really small. Truthfully, I was disappointed. I would have been much better off ordering the steak tips. They would have been double the meat, cooked they way I like based on past experience, and above all, less than half the price. I realize every meal isn't going to be perfect so no blood(pun intended), no foul. It won't stop us from going in the future. It's just that it was New Year's Eve and my expectations were high after splurging on the much more expensive special.

Although the food was reasonable the lack of service provided by the female bartender was quite shocking. She ignored us throughout the entire afternoon , what a pity that you allow this disinterested and non caring employee to dilute such a nice establishment.

Wonderful service and food. You can’t go wrong. Wish the meals came with veggies. Ordering them as sides is pricey as everyone wants something different.

The food was good but the service wasn't the best. The older male at the front desk and the waitress could've cares less. The waitress never asked how the meal was, never offered to refill drinks.

The table was up against the wall with one chair at the swinging door it was really cramped for four people the table would’ve been better suited for two maybe three but definitely not four

First time. Family dinner. Got there early with my son and sat at the bar for a while. Very friendly vibe. Had a couple of apps - chicken tenders and prime rib sliders. Excellent. When we got to our table, had an outstanding server. She was personable. knowledgeable and very efficient. We got ribeye, sirloin steaks. And salmon. It was all excellent. Prices are very fair. Will definitely go back.

We typically go to the Stockyard for special occasions and have been going there to celebrate Christmas for over 30 years. While the service was very good, I was disappointed in the food. My beef was over-cooked and dry and my companions sent back their vegetables to be reheated.

We had an “ok” experience when we went. The place was packed, and I was happy we made a reservation.

The restaurant itself is nice, a good place to go. The service was really good.

But, I”m surprised by the extremely high star rating as we found the food was just ok.
- Nice, affordable wine list
- Calamari was really good
- Pork Chop was dry and for the price, fairly small
- Hamburger was good enough, though the fries were really good
- Sliced steak, was not all that great, they used a lower quality meat

For what we got, it was a bit overpriced, and the food was not all that great.
If the plates were in $15-20 range, then it’d be fine, but they were priced $25-$30, and for that price, they should up their quality.
Maybe they had a bad night. We’ll try it again because everything else was good.

Everything was perfect from start to finish, but the lobby was extremely loud because of a party that spilled out from the event room. It’s to be expected at this time of year....
Otherwise, everyone and everything was exceptional!
