We had never been to the Bowery before the pandemic began, but their large outdoor patio was one of the highlights of our pandemic dining experiences and we have been many times since. The atmosphere is so well done and cozy, with strings of lights overhead, trees and other plants, flat screen TVs, and fantastic eating areas, including an outdoor bar, that you almost feel you are indoors at times. The food is great, as is the service. The indoor restaurant was hopping when we went, but with such a fantastic outdoor space, why not enjoy it as much as possible before winter hits? Although, the Bowery also usually has great heat lamps once the weather turns. Great job, Bowery!

Went here for the first time to try somewhere new for a casual birthday celebration. The food was delicious - everyone in our group loved the starters and their entrees. The noise level was a little high, but it was opening night of the Red Sox playoffs, so that may have added noise. Will definitely come back!

If you struggle to find a great kid friendly dining experience that serves more than pizza and fries, the Bowery Bar is for you! A beautiful atmosphere with a fantastic menu (including cocktails!) where kids are welcomed. They’re even ready with silly straws! If your little ones are still unvaccinated, take advantage of the large patio. Tables are spaced well and service is excellent (even when it started drizzling!) We will definitely be back.

Servers were excellent, but the noise level was too high (and we ate on patio). It was mostly the music, but there were children crying and large loud groups. The lobster roll was saturated in lemon-I couldn’t taste the lobster. The macOS were good and some in my party and enjoyed the halibut.

First time here. Excellent food, really good service. Waitress was excellent. Only complaint (if I had to have one) would be the noise level. Was hard to hear my husband. We were out to celebrate my birthday dinner and it was hard to hear each other. Also recommend that the restaurant post some parking location tips on website. On street parking is hard to find here and I sat alone in restaurant for 15 mins waiting for my husband to park the car.

We had a party of 12 to celebrate a birthday. Shane (mgr) was very accommodating with making sure we were happy (he came over twice to help). He arranged the tables so we had one long table instead of 2 tables in different directions. Thank you! Nicole was our waitress/server and took great care of us. Thank you Nicole. We even went to bar to hang out for more drinks. All in all everyone had a great time and will return again.

We sat outside on their patio, which is a beautiful setting. It's really the nicest outdoor setting in the area. I had the steak and avocado salad, which was delicious. My friend enjoyed the steakhouse burger. Everything was great.

We recently visited their beautiful patio to celebrate my Dad's birthday, forgetting that it was opening day of the Patriots Season. That's all fine and well (GO PATS), but there were so many TVs out on the patio and the volume was at a level that catered to those who were there for the game...and not really anyone else. My mistake for not putting two and two together and still reserving outdoor seating here on Game Day. The TVs kill the ambience of the patio--they used to not have so many. However, my guess is that they are focusing on being more of a Sports Bar now and less of a casual fine dining restaurant. Everyone's meals were quite good and the service was also good--not great because I am sure the server was busy with all the other game-day folk.

Our server took 10 minutes just to great us and checked on us very infrequently. The food took way too long and the drinks were mediocre (lacking flavor). Just an average sports bar, nothing to it.

Annie was an excellent server, checked in often, filled the water glasses consistently, and was pleasant and professional. The Bowery has an extensive beer menu and the nachos were really good. The one disappointment was the roll that accompanied the hot chicken sandwich. It was cold and not particularly appetizing. There's slaw and pickles on the sandwich so perhaps a hot roll would affect the integrity of those ingredients but the sandwich would have been significantly better if the roll was warmed. Overall, the Bowery offers a relaxed environment, has a solid play list, and is worth a visit.
