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 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.
The prices point is higher than some in the area. They lack the same variety of food and drinks as the Broadway. I can get gluten free beer at the Broadway but not here.
Super fun, young environment. The brunch and drinks were delicious, would absolutely recommend
Service was great! Had the watermelon margaritas, not to sweet! We got the truffle tots 10/10, and cauliflower rice bowl, so fresh and delicious. Deff recommend!
Fun atmosphere and great brunch
Delicious food and great quality drinks. Noisy but overall very good
This reservation had previously been cancelled on me.
Our server rushed us throughout the entire process and was a bit rude. We had a reservation and had to wait an additional 15 mins for a table. Food was pretty good.
The Playwright was the perfect place to spend a sunny Saturday. The hostess was so sweet and our waitress was patient when we needed a few minutes to look over the menu and so wonderful about checking in on us throughout the experience.
It was our first outing in a year. We saw this on tiktok and had to try. So we did, we had the best time. We sat at the bar the 3 of us, we laughing. It was small sense of normalcy since all Healthcare workers. Thank you
Great spot but the food sucks. Other than that typically southie bar.
Dined out back in the outdoor cabins. Cool atmosphere but no music out back. Food was excellent.
