Cute pub like restaurant. Not much of a menu but we were there to kill some time before going to the Van Gogh exhibit and watch the Pats. I had the steak sandwich which was actually delicious and my husband had pizza which was fine. I thought the food was a little pricey, $19 burger. I did like the atmosphere, great service and a large selection of draft beers. I would recommend.

Traditional comfort food served in a lively South Boston bar. The crowd was young, and while the menu was limited, it didn't disappoint. The roast chicken was moist and flavorful. The hot chicken sandwich had the right amount of heat, and the soft pretzel hit the spot.

I always love going to Warden Hall! The food is awesome - great list of drinks, tons of beers on tap, too! The staff is friendly and they clearly work well together as a team, so you often have a rotating group of employees checking in to make sure you're enjoying your experience. The brunch is particularly good - best Bloody Mary I've had in a while!

Also, the vibe is super mature and chic. When I eat here, I don't feel like I'm in basic Southie, if you know what I mean... not too chaotic, no lines or overly drunk people, just good vibes and some nice lighting :)

Wow! Great local spot. Menu is short but everything is delicious. The real star is the bourbon list - some really great selections at reasonable prices. Thomas Handy $34 was fantastic.

We were 6 people for brunch and our server was fantastic. Very patient as we ordered all the food and drinks. The food here is AMAZING. Well thought out meals and delicious drinks and they also offer fun flights of mimosas, beers and bourbons. Best espresso martini I’ve had in a long time and the breakfast pizza was delicious. Their staff are all super helpful, there was always someone bringing our drinks and food in a very timely manner. Also- I met my boyfriend here 2+ years ago so it was fun to come back.

Food, drinks and service are always good. The staff was decked out in costumes for Halloween which was fun and they are always so patient/accommodating with my two little kids. It’s quickly becoming our go-to.

Another restaurant called and canceled our brunch reservation for 9 people, less than an hour before we were scheduled. We called Worden Hall and they were able to accommodate our party of 9 within the hour. We found street parking and were seated right away. Food was great and ambience was wonderful. Would definitely return!

Excellent ambiance and wonderful cheese steak, top notch. The only complaint would be the peach cobbler which was blah. Peaches were undercooked, no carmelization or flavor really. But aside from that wonderful food.

We come every year for birthday brunch and we were surprised this year not to receive a birthday dessert. We would have even been happy to pay for it and it was noted on the advance reservation. We appreciated to be seated outside. Service was slow, but to be expected coming out of a pandemic. But we would have drank more had our server come around to offer! Thank you Worden Hall, we will be back.

I was a little disappointed with their menu as it relates to gluten allergies. I was drawn there because Worden Hall had a tag stating “gluten free options” and my girlfriend has a gluten allergy. It wasn’t until we were there that we realized that most of the items that says “Can be made gluten free” are cross-contaminated in the fryers (which is a problem for someone with celiac) . There were only 4 or 5 items on the menu that were truly gluten free, two of which were the salads. They also did not have gluten free buns for any of the sandwiches. I would suggest using a separate fryer and getting some gluten free buns to make this place more accessible to those with gluten allergies. Waitress left unattended for 20+ minutes at a time, but they were pretty busy so take that as you wish.

We only got drinks which were good and the atmosphere is nice.
