Great place. Location, food, service, environment were all amazing.
I've lived in Boston for 45 years and it was my first experience there and I totally LOVED it...
I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

The food at the Winthrop Arms Restaurant was fantastic! We ordered the Arms Chicken Wings; I had 2 Martinis and my girlfriend had ice tea (with a refill). For the entrée I ordered the Doc’s Chicken Pot Pie which was delicious with mashed potatoes. My girlfriend ordered the Seafood Trio which was also very good with a baked potato; but she wasn’t fussed about the sides. The waitress said you can get a salad (THIS IS IMPORTANT!); and a salad is what my girlfriend ordered. It took a while for the chicken wings and the entrees and salad to come because “they were backed up in the kitchen” as per the waitress. She also told us the drinks would be taken off the bill because it took so long to get our food. After the chicken wing appetizer came, our waitress brought the salad over-my girlfriend decided to take the salad home and put it in a takeout container. When the bill came, I noticed that I was charged $3.00 for the side salad and $2.00 for a refill on the ice tea! I called the waitress and she said she would remove the salad charge and adjust the bill. When she returned, she informed us that she couldn’t do that (oh, and especially after they had given me $20.00 worth of alcoholic drinks free). I asked to speak to the manager. Casey Goll (listed as the Operator of the family owned restaurant) came over and argued with us that the Seafood Trio only came with potato or even want to listen to anything we had to say!
Unprinted upcharges need to be made known NO MATTER WHAT THE WAITRESS TELLS YOU!!!!

The food was really good. The portions were huge and very fairly priced. I did not like the coconut shrimp appetizer though. It was not crispy enough and it was on the oily side. The seafood trio (haddock, shrimp and scallops) was amazing! The portion was huge! The temperature in the dining room was very stuffy. Not enough air circulation. Overall, a nice dining experience.

Food is always very good. All of us had prime rib which was fabulous! After appetizers which were huge and plenty to share, the prime rib was amazing! The wait staff was friendly as usual. All in all, the Winthrop Arms is a great spot for a good meal and to be treated like family!
