I thoroughly enjoyed Scollay Square - everything from the food to the great service we received from our waitress Wendy. I will definitely go back as there are many other items I would like to try. Best of all, food and drink prices are very reasonable - especially for Boston. The only drawback is parking - I wish they had a valet.

I went here for my birthday with a group of my girls, and it was fantastic. There was something for everyone on the menu, I was able to get a tuna appetizer and my friends were able to get awesome-looking burgers. The deserts were even better than the meal, we split cheesecake and red velvet cake, they were both phenomenal. The drinks were eclectic and well made. The service staff was very accommodating. My only criticism would be that the chairs were uncomfortable and the tables are too close together, but since it wasn't crowded it didn't matter much.

I liked Scollay. Went with my family and all really enjoyed the Philly egg rolls, different Mac and cheese dishes. The tuna filet was great.

Me and my friedn came for dinner. The Pan Roasted Haddock was tender and satisfying without being heavy. The rice was perfect. The Martini glasses were a decent size and my drink was above average (pear martini). My friend tried the Buffalo Chicken with Mac & Cheese and it was fairly good, mildly spicy. The service was prompt and courteous. It was a Friday evcening and not very crowded surprisingly. The prices were resonable. I would definitely go back, very cute place.

I was in town on business and liked this place so much that after having dinner there with a client, I also went there for lunch on my own too.

So surprised when the restaurant called me the next day and asked my review. In all my years of traveling and eating out this was a first. Totally surprised.....a return for sure.

I've had dinner at Scollay Square several times in the past couple of months. Good food and attentive service at reasonable prices keep me coming back.

On my most recent visit, I had the special: tenderloin steak. And it definitely was special — fork tender, with a tasty sauce, mashed potatoes, and sauteed baby spinach. And service was as attentive as ever.

An excellent brunch menu and tasty Bloody Mary bar! The service was very accommodating, food good and hot. Never felt rushed...just how it should be on a Sunday morning/afternoon. Thank you, Scollay Square!

Great choice for a reasonably priced, but excellent dinner with friends. Generous cocktails at only $10 to start things off, along with an appetizer list that will surely set off a fierce debate among your party if you're only planning on getting one. For an entree, I had the filet mignon of tuna, with wasabi twice-baked potatoes... really amazing flavor, and you can't beat it for coming in under $20. It was relatively busy when I went (Saturday night at 7), and while we were lucky to get a table by the window with plenty of room, the only downside I could potentially note is that some of the other tables looked a bit cramped. Definitely recommend.

Food was great. Cold by the door. Plus they had to turn the ceiling fan on to get smoke from the kitchen to disperse. So a bit chilly. After we asked to turn the fan down, it was fine. Would go back for sure. Very affordable.

It was my first time at Scollay Square, and I can't wait to go back. I went for brunch: the waitstaff were so friendly, our food came out ridiculously fast, and everything tasted great. I can't wait for it to get warm so I can go back and sit on the patio. Definitely going back, and definitely recommending it to my friends!

Surprised to stumble on such a nice place with plenty of seats on a Friday night. Food was good, service quick and very nice. Not a top chef location but a good standby spot.
