  • Surprisingly good "Demon" IPA.
  • Great beer range.
  • The french fries are the best.
  • Pleasantly surprised by the great beer! Get the sampler. They'll let you switch things out if you ask.
  • Get the beer sampler! 5 small beers for a great price.
  • cask ale and Boston cream pie are good.
  • Pretzels with spicy mustard & cheese sauce. Great with beer!
  • Hot summer outside-> brattle blond!!! :D
  • The Lobster Mac and cheese was good. Could do without the hot sauce, though.
  • Good beer. Food was good. Service a bit slow.
  • Triple chocolate brownie sundae omg.
  • Race at the Head of the Charles, then drink 1 pitcher of each beer. Do it!
  • The chips at the bar are delicious, but addictive. Be careful, you've been warned.
  • Great BBQ Burger!!!
  • This is a great place to visit if you are severely depressed. Good beers in a dungeon esque environment. Don't forget to take off your socks and walk across the vintage carpet!
  • Yellow Belly is a fantastic hoppy-yet-not-quite-IPA-hoppy American Ale. Drink it, you will.
  • A long-time favorite haunt. Buffalo chicken sandwich, fish & chips, and must have espresso stout when available!
  • A nice bar with a bunch of craft beers and you can also find a table with a bigger group!
  • Good to grab a drink at the bar. Didn't try the food.
  • Love the darker basement feel of this place. I haven't been during peak hours but always has been a good place to escape crowds for a beer
