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.

We would definitely return in the future. Food was excellent as was the service.
The only drawback was that we were seated right next to the bar and the noise level was very high.
It was even difficult to hear our waitress Lily who was excellent by the way.

The Stockyard is always a go to favorite. The food is always excellent and this time did not disappoint. My husband got daring and tried the prime rib with the cast iron blackened option - I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious it was - I am a prime rib snob and threatened to sit at a different table because I thought he was ruining a perfectly good prime rib! He had our server ask the chef about it first and we were surprised when she came back and said he said it would be fine and seemed unphased by the request. Our server, Olivia, was excellent, as well - pleasant, professional, courteous! Overall, a great experience, as always!

Had a great birthday dinner here this week. The drinks were decent, Al Capone cocktail was slightly overpowered and didnt set well with either of us but the wine was good. Food was amazing, specially the steak and cheese spring rolls! Highly recommended. The salmon and steak were really good too, just be mindful that sides are extra.
The birthday cake with a candle was a nice touch and definitely recommend this place to everyone!

Having dinner with my wife and kids. I really want to compliment the stockyard I’m able to handle food allergies. My so has multiple and some a deadly. To have steak and potatoes out let’s him to be like everyone else. If you have allergies it is a restaurant you can trust

We were greeted with a smile and sat right away. The waiter also was very friendly and joked with the table. We were there to celebrate Grandma and grandson’s birthday. It was a great meal. Enjoyable from beginning to end.

Everything was good, except for the portion size. The amount of steak tips were a bit on the small size.
And the roasted chicken piece was beyond small. I’ve never seen a smaller piece served in a restaurant. Luckily the diner was a thin small young woman.

We visit there frequently but we think perhaps there is new management/owner/chefs? Our burgers we asked medium, 2 were overcooked and charred and one was under cooked. Our past few meals have been ok but not consistent to what it used to be :(

Went there for a birthday celebration and it was great! Stockyard is one of our favorite places as it seems like an old-time Boston steakhouse. Food was amazing! And I had requested flowers be put on the table for her birthday and they did a great job having the perfect fall bouquet!

I would not recommend for lunch... service was slow, the meat was way overcooked, portions skimpy and not a nice meal. It was not crowded, we were served water quickly, but then our waitress walked by us at least 5 times before we flagged her down to take our order. The rest of the service was better but still slow and inattentive. The bar area looks nice for a drink but I would not do a meal or table service again.

Excellent food and service. Food came quickly. One small piece of criticism would be that the men's bathroom sign was very hard to read, and the door was hard to open (I'm in a wheelchair).

We waited 60 minutes for our food during brunch. We arrived at 12 and we did not get our food until after 1. The food was a bit greasy. The waitress was nice and the atmosphere was relaxing.

All in all, Stockyard offers a nice atmosphere, with great service and delicious food. It is NOT necessary for them to up charge for the vegetables, given the price of the beef entrees - but they do. Of course the waitress doesn't tell you there is a charge when she asks, "what do you want for your two sides?" I was a bit disappointed when I got the bill.

The Stockyard is a great dining experience, low-key, service-intensive w/ a great menu for meat-eaters. I especially love that it is so family-friendly. All of the tables around us were multi-generational gatherings. It is easy to see why this restaurant is a special occasion restaurant for so many.

I decided to try the special. It was Wagyu Beef slices medium rare, with potatoes au gratin and broccoli with red pepper flake and garlic. The potatoes and broccoli were outstanding. The Wagyu was disappointing. What little flavor the beef had was almost as though it was re-heated. The clam chowder appetizer was thick and creamy with good flavor. The Strawberry Shortcake was very good. Our server was very attentive and did a great job. The Stockyard will remain one of my favorite restaurants, but I will go back to my favorite dish....the Prime Rib.

This was my fourth or fifth visit to the Stockyard. It’s always a great atmosphere, and the food is deliciously reliable. I had the prime sliced sirloin with mushroom risotto and cauliflower; it was fantastic. My dining companions had the burger and ribs. All were satisfied. Service was great.
