You see that Saturday in Boston was extremely cold with wicked wind chill. This restaurant was fairly close by and when we arrived we were greeted with a warm smile and a... More

They had a great variety of fresh food in the menu. I had a grilled beef kebab with salad. They provide complimentary water and the Bulgarian based stuff was customer friendly.

I went to grad school near the pig, and this place was always a late night stop, and I try to get over there as often as possible. The toasties are great, the beer is cold, and for some reason, about 85% of the time I'm there, they're playing London Calling, which is probably one of the best albums of... More

Bar with nice atmosphere and large selection of draught beers. Food was ok, chilli and burger were good but the salads had too much dressing.

We decided to have lunch here and it turned out to be a very good choice. We had the Haddock fish and chips and the pig burger. Very genuinely friendly staff and attentive. Food was good and VFM especially the fish compared to other nearby places. Would definitely go back again.

Sheltering from a heavy snow storm we holed up here for lunch. The beer was wet and the toasted sandwiches and soup were OK. Nothing special, but good enough. Service functional.

It was pretty crowded in the main room, but there was a flow of air from the grill to cool us down on a 90 degree day. The food selection was good, the quality of the food was good, and our waitress Rachel was very nice.

Friendly staff, ok food, but a very solid selection of beers. Food was decent, and I have to say that when I asked for my burger "rare" they brought it "rare"! Great Job! on a small sidenote, the T-Shirts only go up to XL (but it looked more like just an L)

The Squealing Pig is a favorite hangout spot for graduate students and young professionals working at the medical area. They have a great beer selection, featuring local brews, your typical domestic beers, and several good imports. I can also strongly recommend the beef kebabs on the dinner menu. The lobster rolls are also good but a little pricey.

Thank Andrei S
