Reservations strongly encouraged but we do accept walk-ins. We will only be able to seat you when your entire party has arrived. Tables are held for 10 minutes after initial reservation and then your table is forfeited. If the reserved table is forfeited, you will remain on the wait list and seated at the next available table. Subject to applicable change.

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.

I love the ambiance and outdoor seating at Broadway, and they have an awesome drink menu if you want to have a cocktail or beer, but their food is totally overpriced and really just not that good. I've been a few times and have felt this every time. Last night I ordered a $20 Caesar salad that could have been a side, it was small, with old, wilted lettuce, mushy croutons, and little-to-no dressing. Probably won't be going there for food anymore.

We came for brunch to find out they weren't even serving brunch that day, with no explanation. There was a really smoky or fishy smell in the place as well. The service was terrible. Our waitress came over once. They literally have branded water carafes, and we still had to ask if we could have a couple of waters.

We loved our dining experience at The Broadway; the food and drink tower we got were SO good. The ambiance of this place was also very happy and nice.

We were looking for a place to eat in south Boston, from Wisconsin on vacation! Didn’t realize every restaurant would be booked/reserved by 4pm. This place had some tables left..so glad! Loved the food and it was a cool atmosphere!

The Broadway is fun and energetic. We visiting during a Bruins playoff game so it was really busy. Our waitress didn't seem to want to be there and had very low energy, but we attributed that to the first big weekend fully opened after the pandemic. The food was great! Highly recommend the pizza!

Quick service, great drinks, food was ok. Not pricey. I had the fried chicken and biscuit. Could've been better. My husband had the rib melt... Also just ok. The calamari and mozzarella sticks were very good. The ambiance was nice. Good music. Clean bathrooms. Definitely going back to try other things on the menu. The only downside to this whole experience... The entree selections are very limited

The food was yummy! Drinks delish. Most of the staff was helpful and friendly aside from our actual waitress. She seemed bothered to be at work on Mother’s Day and it showed even thru the mask. We still enjoyed overall, just a bummer when customer service is not up to par

Went to the Broadway on a sunday for a small celebration. We got a margarita tower for 5 of us, which was well worth it, as we each had 3 margs. I ordered the poke bowl which was a generous portion, including a ton of fish and basically an entire avocado lol. However, one of my friends got the spring harvest bowl which was easily half the size of my meal and not worth the price.

There was inconsistency in serving sizes across our entrees unfortunately. However, the place has decent food and an energetic atmosphere. It's definitely great for drinks and a party vibe, but if what you're looking for is high quality and high value in your meal, you may want to search elsewhere.

Additionally, our server was not that attentive and we found ourselves waiting a long time for many simple asks (e.g., more water).

Ate at the Broadway for breakfast. The BW breakfast was good (eggs, bacon, potatoes). The English muffin wasn't toasted/grilled. Make sure you specify. The service was pretty good, although the server's gravitate towards the tables ordering alcohol (since it is brunch) so our server didn't ask if we needed refills on our coffees or water. Definitely a good option for brunch.

Food and drinks were amazing! However, it was super loud and wait staff seemed annoyed most of the time we were there. Maybe this is due to covid restrictions and policies and people not following etc.

I was so excited to try this restaurant out for brunch and was very disappointed when I had a very rude waitress. She was not friendly at all and stone cold to my friend and I to the point we felt uncomfortable. Sadly it was enough to deter me from ever going back, so disappointed

Service was absolutely terrible. Like i never write reviews but this place was AWFUL. I called to ask if I could drop off a cake in advance and they said absolutely. Dropped it off at 2pm reservation was at 700, and they never brought it out even tho i reminded them. By 830 we had to leave bc of the time limit but they never brought out the cake which was supposed to be a surprise for the bday girl. Server walked by us 10 times without asking if we needed anything when she knew it was her 21st BIRTHDAY. OH AND we dropped off a cake cutter and candles with the cake which they did not give back to us.
