The food was great and for a good price and the drinks are so good that I can't wait for the next time I go.
It was quite loud in the restaurant and could hardly hear the people I was dining with. Otherwise, it was great.
The hostess was super accommodating, food was great, drinks were great. Great atmosphere, a lot of people in costumes for Halloween and in patriots stuff for the game. Great time overall.
Great food and Wednesday trivia.
Made a reservation for 8 people at 9pm, and our table wasn’t available and said they couldn’t do anything about it.
I HAD THE BEST BDAY BRUNCH EVER THANK YOU HANNAH!!!!
Went at 5:00 on a Friday before a Red Sox game. About five customers in there and the service was so slow. Buffalo chicken wrap and grain bowl were both awful. Quesadilla app ok
Very busy restaurant. Loud ambiance inside so please be prepared for that or make an outdoor reservation. Food was okay. Mimosa tower was okay. Service was okay.
Wayyyyy too much ice in the pitcher of sangria, but other than that the food was absolutely amazing! Will definitely be coming back next time I am in the Boston area
Extremely poor service and said that we had to sit at the bar even though we reserved a table a week in advance. Awful service and blaring music makes us never want to come back.
Love the food, service, and ambiance
Great food and drink tower was amazing. Good portions for price. Would highly recommend.
The food was amazing and the drinks were strong. I had a delicious Lavender Lemontini that was amazing. My food was also very good. I got the Belgium Waffles and it was so good. I didn’t really care for the egg because personally I like scrambled not sunny side up but I didn’t realize it came it. Otherwise amazing.
The place was packed so I do recommend a reservation. Also it was super cold but that might be because we were under a fan. It is kind of loud but we didn’t mind that.
Serve was EXCELLENT. super friendly and gave us touristy things to do!
Outdoor seating is picnic tables on the street, not too loud though. The buffalo cauliflower was good. Good selection of beer and drinks but small food menu.
Venue couldn’t accommodate the reservation
Great food, excellent service! Brunch was amazing as were the drinks. Great place to get together with friends and catch up especially if you sit outside on a nice day.
Amazing restaurant. Mac and cheese is a must
Amazing food, great customer service, my server was amazing, attentive to our table, very knowledgeable on drink menu. She could tell I didn’t like my first drink so she had the bartender make a new one based on questions I had asked her previously. I would recommend everyone here!!!
When did it get something to eat and The staff is good and they're very understanding experience the bruins game on big TV it was nice
The Playwright is my go-to for a casual dinner! The drinks and food are good, and they have plenty of outdoor seating.
Welcoming and fast service ! Very attentive servants ! Good presentation and quality on food and good drinks and food options ! Will return and refer friends ! ❤️
Rude. Told us to put on the wait list and then hostess was rude told me it might be tomorrow that they would call me
Tower selection was great!
Service was ok. Our waitress was courteous, but busy. My meal came out room temp like it had been sitting a while. Had to send it back and it took a while to come out. Apetizers were the best.
Mother’s Day. Service was super slow and it was 215 in the afternoon and wasn’t busy at all....
Kelsey was an amazing server! So nice and attentive! And pretty!
Playwright is the best. I always have the best time there and the staff is so kind.
We were visiting from Michigan and unfortunately, they refused to take our IDs. The server was very rude about it because she thought she caught “fake” ids. We’re 23. She was also the same server I had on my 23rd birthday under a month prior but she did not remember (not that I expected her to). She refused to take our vaccine cards as backup proof so we were just told to leave.
Best appetizers in Southie
Great service, great food— we didn’t feel rushed at all and the wait staff was super attentive.
Came here after having a terrible experience at "The Broadway" next door, and had a great time! The service was good, the vibe was immaculate (energetic, great music, good TV set up), very covid safe, the food was yummy and the drinks were affordable! Perfect southie bar.
I loved that we were able to get an outdoor table. Watermelon sangria and nachos were so good!
Great food and great drinks! I love the atmosphere here; it’s always so fun and lively.
Great! So much fun.
Very pricy for what we got. $16 burger and it wasn't very good. I liked the patio location and it was a fun place! Just a little expensive. Service wasn't fantastic.
This place is heavily overrated. The atmosphere is fun but the food was fine but disappointing and overpriced. The drinks are not bad, but I expected much more from this place after hearing so many people go here and rave about it. I’ve seen it on so many food instagrams, but I really didn’t understand the hype. Brunch there was very average in my opinion.
There was hair in the food and dirty utensils. It was so loud you couldn’t hear your own table
We had hoped to be seated out back since they had lots of cute photos of the back space but they stopped seating there. We reserved a table for outdoors. The outdoor space was a picnic table by the road. They did say they could turn on heaters but also mentioned that they would have to take the umbrellas out which seems like a hassle. It’s 47 so we should have probably eaten inside but..Covid. I give them lots of credits for working hard during the pandemic. I was sad not to experience the back but that’s okay.
