Pub atmosphere, great décor. Reservation at 6 was accommodated at 6:15. Food was very good, we had the cheese and meat tray which was excellent as were the fish and chips.

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.

The food was good but service was not very consistent. Waiter next came to check on us and we had to ask the hostess to get our waiter.

Leider sehr laut und für die Qualität etwas zu teuer!

Great atmosphere albeit a little loud, but it was Friday night so this was to be expected. Very friendly, attentive service and the food was great!

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.
