About

The restaurant has a raw bar with eight seats, serving a selection of oysters that changes daily. Appetizers, which are served in cast-iron skillets, include lollipop lamb chops, meatballs, roasted Brussels sprouts, and pan-seared scallops. The main menu features several pizzas, including a particularly meaty one topped with pepperoni, prosciutto, and salami. In addition to pre-set pizzas, there are customizations available, along with sandwiches and salads. Entrees rotate weekly.

To drink, there are 24 beers on draft and cocktails served in non-traditional vessels, like antique tea cups and champagne buckets. The White Bull Tavern operates daily from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. In the coming months, the restaurant will debut late-night and weekend brunch menus.

Nothing particularly wrong. Maybe we got our hopes up a little too much because we were led to believe this was a really lively place. The atmosphere was just kind of "Meh." No one was working the host's stand when we came in and we had to go up to the bar to get someone's attention. I'm not even sure they knew we had a reservation. But the food was pretty good, especially for Boston prices, and the service was fine at the bar. Good experience overall and I would go back if I was in the area again. Still, I was hoping for a little better.

We went late afternoon so it wasn’t too crowded. Food was very good. Lobster roll and homemade chips were amazing.

I came in for a late night buffalo pie as I do quite often because it's one of my favorite in Boston and I've supported this on ig and via boston influencers who are friends that also repost and in turn support your business. It was actually the day after my birthday.

That said, I still love the food but will not come here ever again because of your staff...

Your thuggish doorman and bearded "mixologist" are rude, unprofessional, and apparently think they can judge a book by its cover and get away with it.... Wrong.

I was also informed your manager whom I really liked is no longer there anymore? Yes, that's right, when I asked where he was I was met with laughter (so professional)... Well he was awesome so, your loss.

In 15+ years of this industry when I see things like that after the 3 to 6 month honeymoon opening period its a clear sign the snowball has started to roll... And straight to hell at that.



(Original review from weeks back before last visit was 4 stars but I couldn't let this go so I updated it)

Eat here so often and so happy I found out you had opentable finally so i couldnt not write something!

Buffalo chicken pie is always Amazing.
Buffalo wings, potentially some of the most flavorful and perfectly cooked wings I have had. The meatball and cubano paninis are basically a go to whenever throughout the week. The lobster roll white bulls way is quite nice too with the bacon and lobster - a refreshing twist!

Hope this helps and cheers!

Casual neighborhood joint, steps away from Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Great spot to grab a bite to eat and a beer without breaking the bank. The menu includes lobster rolls (of course), but also options for someone who doesn't enjoy seafood (specialty pizzas, paninis, and appetizers).

We were seated and a young man brought us some water. We waited for a server to come see us. We waited 15 minutes as we watched the waitress for our section talk to every table except for us. We left and ate elsewhere.

It’s definitely still in the process of establishing itself and the look it’s going for which was distracting at all times. The food was very mediocre and not worth the higher price. There was no issue with good timing but there seemed to be one waitress for the entire floor. We saw multiple parties get up and leave. They also disregarded our reservation and just shrugged when they found it on open floor. I’ll try it again when it seems like they are more put together.

We ate at The White Bull Tavern for lunch. The buffalo dip appetizer and flatbreads are excellent. Definitely recommend for lunch.
