The Broadway is a grand room. Built in the same great location where the group got its start, this vibrant space takes inspiration from the neighborhood’s hard-working industrial roots. Rough-cut wood and steel-accented concrete act as a foundation for the design that features a variety of communal seating options and two large bars – one built using wood from the original Beer Garden. Other features include a wide-open store front, a wood-fired pizza oven, and an impressive menu that has something for everyone.

The brunch menu is excellent - we enjoyed our espresso martinis (on tap), stuffed croissant and french toast sticks. Lots of booth seating, and good energy! Service was great - everything is made in house!

Got seated right away, really great waitress. It was hard deciding on what to get because everything looks so good. Favorite was the mac & cheese scrambled egg pizza

I would only recommend eating here if you want to watch a sporting event and not talk your friends. This restaurant is not for anyone who expects to enjoy a quite meal and conversation. Way too loud!Overall, the food was good for what you would expect at a sports bar. We were timely seated via our Open Table reservation and at first our waiter was engaging. After ordering our drinks and main meal, we never saw him again until we were practically done with our dinner. He was very pleasant and informed, but it just seemed that there was not enough wait staff to handle the restaurant on a Saturday night.

We had to leave because the music was so outrageously loud we couldn’t hear anything and couldn’t even talk to my parents at dinner. The waiter was not surprised at all with our choice to go somewhere else nearby so we could actually enjoy each other’s company and not have a pounding headache from sitting at dinner. I will never suggest anyone ever go here if they are looking to have any form of conversation at dinner. Such a bummer!

The Broadway is really loud. Don't go if you are looking to have an intimate conversation. Go if you would like to watch sports and enjoy some good food / drinks. I was pleasantly surprised by my salad. I ordered the kale and quinoa salad with grilled salmon, and the salmon was perfectly cooked / a large piece, and the salad was large as well. Overall, everyone enjoyed their food, but we didn't stay after dinner due to the noise level.

Went for brunch on new years, hot coffee was lukewarm and tasted burnt. I got the breakfast skillet and the monkey bread. Breakfast skillet was bland, sausage tasted like a dry burger, no flavor. Monkey bread was dry and burnt. Completely not worth the money. Multiple other items on the menu are also tasteless. Music was way too loud, screaming to talk to others across the table.

Brunch was great, not too busy or loud. The Buffalo Cauliflower is a must have if you go there. The Blody Mary was good but the "Inferno" was not spicy at all so they could definitely jack up the heat if they are going to call something Inferno.

Overall great experience for Sunday brunch.

This was my 2nd time at the Broadway. I had been before for a home buyers seminar. This time I met up friends from Chicago. Our reservation for 4 was ready and the hostess was happy to make arrangements for the fifth person that came along. The service was fast and attentive the food was prompt warm and delicious and we were not rushed to leave when we were done. The price was what we expected. Our only was concern was the noise level made conversation difficult, but what can you expect from a pub on a Sunday afternoon after a Patriots game. I will definitely go back

Food and drinks were presented in an appealing manner and tasted pretty good. The atmosphere was fun but it was very loud and crowded. We went for a 2 year anniversary and could barely hear each other. However, our waitress was lovely.

The food was excellent, the staff was amazing. Our only issue was that we were in the back (not a bad thing) but we couldn't see the menu because it was so dark. We had to use our phone flashlight to see. Which was funny. THEN, if we didn't already feel too old, it was so loud- we couldn't hear anything. But- that's just the kind of place the Broadway is. I know it's our issue- not theirs. Now get off my lawn.

The Broadway is the loudest restaurant I have ever experienced. Never before do I recall leaving a meal with my ears ringing as if I’d attended a concert. The food was adequate but not enough to offset the noise. With a large crowd, concrete floors, brick walls, and a concrete ceiling the large space is an echo-chamber. I’d encourage the owners to consider some inexpensive design changes that could greatly improve on the dining experience.

The food and service were good. This was my second time there.... the music is very (unnecessarily) loud. This time was a little better as we sat in the back portion of the restaurant but even while walking through the front the music just blares. It’s hard to have a conversation without yelling to each other.

The best lamb burger I've ever had. Ordered from the weekly chefs menu and had the lamb burger, it was without a doubt the best burger I've ever had. I sincerely hope they keep this as a regular item on the menu.

Love the service, food and vibe. There was alot of space and room to move around. I loved the food and drinks were amazing! I wanted to try everything on the menu. The only thing was the music was very loud which I understand since it was a day of a basketball game but I would like to see what it is like when it is not so busy. Our server was amazing and super sweet as well. I will be for sure going back :)

Music too loud to have conversation on Mother’s Day. I get later at night the volume but 5pm for conversation in a great space and with great food didn’t happen. Lower the volume early hours and I would definitely come back.
