Disappointed in the food and the environment. Also the bathrooms were absolutely disgusting which was a turn off.

Extremely loud restaurant. Food was ok...nothing great, nothing bad. I got chicken under a brick which did not at all look like it had been flattened, it was just half a chicken and was SUPER dry with overcooked brussels sprouts and the presentation looked like it had almost laid off the plate to one side...no love on the plate at all. My friends had steak, looked good. I wouldn't make this a dining destination but its convenient when going to a game.

Cool vibe, great service and food. Drinks were lacking in substance and size for price in comparison to other trendy establishments. All in all a good experience.

Ordered the chicken and waffles. The sausage gravy was not edible and ruined most of the dish. The chicken was tonight meat and very fatty with undercooked skin.

Ward 8 is a decent place to grab a meal. I didn't find anything particularly amazing about the food, but it accomplished its goals at a decent price. The service was a bit lacking, and it was hard to figure out who to talk to about it at the restaurant (I never saw a manager around, and no one stopped at our table other than the server). Drinks took 45 minutes to arrive, and when they did, the server brought the wrong drinks twice (even after we gave our order a second time). Overall, a fine experience, but not a must-visit place.

Nice place, clean, great customer service. $12 glass of wine and not much wine in the glass. One ladies room, one men’s room but other than that, food was good, great warm pretzels!

Food and drinks were great. Service was very weak. We waited forever to order a second drink then found out our waitress had actually left for the night and had to ask another server for our check.

We went before a Celtics game, but be warned if there's an event at The Garden and you want to eat and talk get there early! This place fills right up and gets super loud -- a testament to the good food and drink, certainly. Loved the curry milk mussels appetizer.

Came for dinner with dad before the Celtics game, The food was absolutely delicious! The restaurant was full so the noise level was a little loud for my father, but we had a great time regardless, it did not hinder our experience at all. Definitely a great spot for awesome food and drinks!

Easy walking distance to TD Garden and surrounds. Good but brief menu. Excellent beer and brew knowledge on staff. Would come back again for sure. Not a quiet hangout.

I always love Ward 8, but it was SO cold this time, I can't not say anything. The food was great as always, but this was the first time I've experienced really slow service when we went out of our way to speed up the check, and again, COLD!

PS: thumbs up to the shishito peppers

Service was attentive but drinks from bar took a very long time, we didn't get our first round of drinks till after our entrees arrived, even though they were ordered 30 minutes prior. Food was good but healthy options are slim, sad to see they removed the kale ceasar caesar and replaced with standard bland fare.
