DROP DEAD DELICIOUS! Is what I was told back in 2005. The Brown Jug was at another location then but now at the present location the Food and atmosphere has held up. Great place to meet friends and make friends.

We had wings, fried pickles and two pizzas. All were great. The wings were spicy hot. The pickles were small chips. The pizzas were thin crust with terrific sauce. Little too much oil made it for messy eating, but tasty..

Really good pizza joint, and cold beer. Not to many other options worth looking at. Salad was just basic, but ok if you need just a little filler before the pizza. Pizza is very good.

We ordered carryout my first night in Boston. It was so good and their crust has a hint of sweetness! We ordered two pizzas and bot were yummy. One had minimal toppings and the other was load down with meats and veggies! They deliver but we chose carryout.

I am visiting from Maryland and asked for pizza recommendations as I haven't lived here in over 16 years. After receiving several positive reviews we decided to try the Brown Jug and it was even better then expected. Lots of choices, great staff and quick service.

Never disappointed, this restaurant/bar has great pizza and beer and a reasonable price. They also have great BBQ wings. Their sandwiches are also good. If your in the area and you want a good pizza, I would recommend. The service is also very good. On the other side, they have a bar with Keeno and a juke box.
