Service, drinks and food was all great. Very friendly waitress. Food was very tasty and the portions were more than enough! Acoustics are not great though. My only complaint. I will definitely return!

Outdoor seating area is very nice. They were quite busy. So the food (made to order) took some extra time. Worth the wait. I will be visiting again in the near future.

My family a very good week night dinning experience at Union Straw. Drinks and food were excellent. The food was well prepared, flavorful, and creative. We had a person with celiac disease in our party. The staff was knowledgeable of the requirements for safely feeding someone with celiac. It is tough to find a restaurant we are comfortable with but Union Straw is well worth a return trip.

Service was fantastic and loved the space. Ordered the award winning rib eye. Portion was good, as well as presentation. But asked for medium rare and it was medium to well. Barely even pink in the middle which was disappointing.

Went for brunch. Bloody Mary was so good especially with a shrimp and a piece of pork belly among other things. Biscuits and gravy and the cinnamon brioche French toast.. both were excellent. Our server was very friendly and super efficient. Will definitely go back for lunch or dinner.

Not sure what happened, place didn’t seem busy, but waited over an hour for the food, which was just ok by the time we got it. Pancakes were tough, waffles were good, mixed bag. Wait staff were super nice, but were missing for long periods. I think if the wait time was lower, I’d rate higher, but given how long we waited, and the food being only ok, it wasn’t a great experience.

First time here, will definitely come back. Our waitress, Colleen, was very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Loved the ambiance, large space, tables spaced well. The ceilings are high so it was noisy. Food was very good, two of us had smash burgers with salad, one of our party had of mac and cheese with bacon, and one had an order of chicken and waffles, all very good, portions were excellent. House made chips to start were also good. A few more items on the menu I would like to try so we will definitely be back.

What a great experience at Union Straw! Our server Casey was knowledgeable about the menu and made some great recommendations! I had the chicken and waffles, a really tasty spicy break-your-diet kind of treat! The beer selection was very good, as were the wine choices. The outdoor patio is really very nice and felt like private dining. Overall a great night out! We will definitely be back!

Food quality was exceptionally poor. We were told that the shrimp was grilled; more likely they were precooked, frozen shrimp thawed under running water. I would not recommend this restaurant.

We enjoy the restaurant and have done a great deal of take out. Our favorites are the Duck Grilled Cheese and the Pear and Goat cheese salad. We split both.

Thirty minute wait with reservation. Many empty tables, but clearly understaffed. We felt bad for them, but dismayed that hostess communicated with others, but not us. She gave away bar seating to walk ins without offering to those with reservations.
Server clearly exhausted and did her best to be nice and move things along. She (Ellie) is definitely an asset to the restaurant.
Water tasted like it was from a toilet. Po boys and fries were delicious. Farmers Mkt flatbread had no flavor and peppers were from a jar. Disappointing.
We’ll wait for them to get the kinks out and will try again.

We loved Union Straw. All the food was delicious. The patio was very inviting, food came out quickly and everyone was very friendly. My kids barely made a peep because they were enjoying themselves so much. The homemade chips were a big hit and the s’mores dip was delectable! We’ll be back for sure!

Union Straw never disappoints!
Have had the Flatbreads, seasonal entrees, BBQ and many apps, all were delish! The added bonus is there is always a good beer on tap!

It was our first time dining at Union Straw and we will definitely go back. It proved to be a good date night restaurant, but next time, we'll bring the whole family -- there is lots for our picky eaters to like. The cocktails were inventive, the food fresh and delicious. As a vegetarian, there were a number of good choices -- I wasn't relegated to just one appetizer and one main dish. The dining room was nice and there was a good energy.

Hard to find entrance to this place. Once we got inside it was really big. Fun atmosphere. Our waitress was really good and accommodating. There were a lot of food choices and prices were good. Got together with family from Ri so it was a good 1/2 way place for all of us and we will go back!

We were very hungry after attending a RedSox game. Felt a little underdressed because normally I would dress a little nice for this place but having run late coming from the game had to attend in jeans and t shirts but nobody seemed to care. It is a casual nice environment. We sat at the bar and the bartender was great. She was very attentive, answered our questions and provided friendly service. The food was excellent. We had chicken tenders that were delicious and ribs and rib eye for meals. My husband loved the ribs and the rib eye came with roasted potatoes and duck. Boy was it scrumptious but sooo much food so needed to take some home. My rum punch was fruity and delicious. It came with a cute little flower. 🌸My husband was happy with the selection of beers. Watched the Bruins on the tv’s behind the bar and we had a great evening.
