After driving to Boston and dealing with traffic a delicious cocktail and appetizers were needed. This place was perfect for just that. Order their cheesy tots (they have a little kick)!! My mother enjoyed her crab cakes as well. I listed that we ate there...More

Was not at all impressed with Minibar. Lots of fluff, not somewhere I would visit again. One (male) of the three bartenders was friendly. The other bartenders seemed annoyed, and were super chatty with one another, not focused on the customer.
