That porky toast was awesome. Clean and bright place. Comfy and warm. Perfect for a Saturday after a walk on the boardwalk !

We went on a Friday night. We called first but they do not accept reservations. There was a 20 minute wait. After 25 minutes my son went back up to the hostess and she admitted she forgot about us but there was a table available. The apps and entrees were brought out at the same time which is a pet...

Went for Friday night dinner - interesting menu. At 5.30pm the spinach dip had run out, so we chose guacamame which was pretty good. The fried waffle chicken was nice but there was far too much of it and the fish and chips were fine. What wasn't acceptable was the waiter's inconsistent service and the odor of cigarette smoke when... More

My husband and I stopped in for dinner after hearing great things about Local 149. Loved the atmosphere, a great addition to any neighborhood. We had the Tuna Tartare Sandwich and it was amazing. Creative drinks and a great beer selection.

Drinks, bar snacks, sports on TV, lively and young vibe. Fine for quick meal with friends. Buffalo wings were enormous portion but very very hot and spicy. Chicken waffle went down well.

After hearing about this place from my girlfriend, my colleagues back in London as well as numerous people in Boston, I booked a table for my girlfriend, 2 friends and myself. We were greeted by 2 hostesses in Parker coats and shown to a pretty decent table. The ambience of the restaurant was great, very lively which was a good... More

Fried calamari with spicy peppers sums up the atmosphere. A great place for food and company in a lively - vibrant "neighborhood" bar and restaurant. Took advantage of the special turkey burger which was excellent (little light on the cranberry mayo- order extra!) compared very favorably with the regular burger ordered by one of the others at our table. The... More

Happened by this place a bit by accident but I'm glad I did. The food was really good, and the waitress was awesome. The hog wings are a must.
