Dinner before show at Opera House with My husband. He enjoyed the extensive beer selection. We shared an appetizer. For dinner I had the rib eye and he has fish and chips. Both were cooked perfectly. Service was friendly and attentive.
The ambience and decor was unique. I enjoyed reading the history of the location.
Thank you for a perfect evening!!
Reservation recommended... seems to be an after work hot spot!

We reserved this restaurant since it is close to the Boston Opera house and we were attending a performance. We ordered a side of cauliflower to be served with our entre. I ordered trout as my entre and me wife ordered scallops. when we were served my dinner was duck not trout and the cauliflower was cold. I sent the duck back and by the time my entre was served my wife had finished her meal. The staff apologized but we have removed this restaurant from our list of establishments we visit in Boston.

Not sure what was happening on this visit to Stoddard's; it was ok but not great. The bouillabaisse was a bit too thick for my taste (closer to marinara sauce that broth) but not bad; came in a small bowl and with no bread or croutons (they brought me some when I asked). More potatoes than fish. The Scotch Egg was very dried out; definitely not cooked to order. My kid's burger was fine. The grinder was ok; closer to a panini in that it was toasted and pressed; we were expecting more greens. Fries were good. Still a convenient, reasonably priced option for before the theater; they are very good at bringing things out quickly and accommodating theatre-goers in a hurry.

I Loved Stoddards. Loved the atmosphere most of all!!!! We Loved the Cauliflower appetizer. My daughter wanted to drink the juice at the bottom of the bowl, it was so delicious. So I double dog dared her and she Did!!! The big surprise was Pineapple Pepper cake we had for dessert, we first said No, but were intrigued. LOVED IT!Cant wait to go back!

I really thought the food here was good but it was sooooo cold inside that we spent the entire time dressed in jackets. I will go back it's better weather and give it another chance. But, really, turn the heat up a bit.

Wife and I dining before a show in theater district. Found the food very good with Mussels, Rabbit Pot Pie and Stoddard's own Burger... The service questionable... Asked for Captain Morgan (CM) and coke... Without saying a word, came back with Cruzan 9 and coke... Off the waiter went as I tasted the drink, !WHAT! is this? Thought is might Jim Beam... Told waiter this is NOT CM... He took it back... Came back and said the bartender used Cruzan because they didn't have CM! Thanks for telling me... Yechh! So I went with a Long Island Iced Tea (LIIT) and that was good, but later in the meal I asked for another drink for my wife and another LIIT for me... Came back with my wife's drink in 1 minute... Mine? took another 10 minutes... Doubt I am going back... No CM? Really?

Our 2nd time there, both times for a Boston Celtics pre-game dinner and beers. The service is impeccable, food is good with portions that are of good size. They have a great selection of beer, both draft and bottled. Reservation process through Open Table was simple. It's becoming a " go to" place.

Great beer menu including cask ales on English beer engines. The rabbit pot pie was excellent as was the meat/cheese platter, which easily could feed 2-3 people. Burgers are fantastic.

I booked a reservation through Open Table, and when we got there the restaurant was closed. It was 5 degrees in Boston, we were not close to our hotel, and the surrounding restaurants were all packed, so we walked around for 20 minutes before finding something mediocre on what was otherwise supposed to be a special occasion sort of night. I was obviously disappointed that neither the restaurant nor Open Table thought to disable the restaurant on OT for the night they were closed. At least set up an automated email saying that the restaurant was closed for the night.

Has a really excellent Belgian on tap. It was 12% and served in a 10oz pour. Unbelievable flavor, great kick. The beer list is excellent and full of options not commonly found. Food is really good too. Great pub atmosphere. It's very narrow, so it's really loud when full, but what isn't anymore. Enjoy!

This is a great place to meet up with friends or pre/post theater. The food is delicious, and the beer list is unbelievable. The noise level is very high, so if you are looking for quiet conversation, ask for a table away from the bar.

I’ve been here several times in the past, but this had to be the WORST experience ever. The waiter had the personality of a wet rag. He seemed annoyed that my party of 6 needed 2-3 minutes to decide on drinks. Considering they only gave us 1 menu, we had to share.
Appetizers came out before our drinks. Fondue was mediocre, pretzels were hard, Poutine was basic. When dinner was served, Nobody finished even half their food because it was so bad. Dried out chicken and beef, over cooked fish & chips. Just horrible. Even with half of the food left on our plates, the waiter never asked if we wanted to take any of it home. He just took it all off the table. Not that we would have, but i think he still should have asked. Since i felt so guilty that i was the one who selected the restaurant, I paid the entire bill

Always enjoyed this place in the past. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll ever return

Stoddard’s is our new go-to stop before events at the Boston Opera House. Easy reservations with personal call for follow up. Attentive servers, great food and outstanding beverages have made for great experiences with and without tween girls.
