Went here expecting much more from the reviews. Food was alright but unremarkable and definitely not worth the price. Might give it another shot.

The place is cozy and relaxed.The light gives it a pub atmosphere. Everybody was very friendly and the food was good. Wine list was average, but you can't always be perfect :-)

Per the recommendation of our Holiday Inn staff, we visited the 224 Boston St. Restaurant. The food was very good, and the drinks were cold. Prices were reasonable, and the selection was plentiful. Wait staff was very nice. Good place to eat if you are in the area of Boston.

We were staying nearby and found this place. It's small but friendly looks like mostly local residents. The food was excellant, service great and prices were very reasonable. After paying much more for less at other restaurants we were very pleasantly surprised to find this place. If you are looking for a good meal this is your place.

We has a hard time finding this restaurant but it was worth the time. The cod cakes were fabulous but the shrimp cannelloni was not good...hardly any shrimp. Drink prices were also excessive compared to other places. Good place overall but thats's it.

Found this place on yelp as it was #1 in the area. So, we gave it a try. Got there two minutes before opening. Had a drink before dinner and then had a very tasty lobster cheese and mac! My friend had the grill pork chop. Both were outstanding. Then to top off with root beer float and crème burley.... More

All I can say is that I had expectations that we would have good service and good food for a business meeting. What we got was excellent service and very good food. There isn't much else to say except that I would recommend this place and I would certainly go back again when I'm in Boston.

We stopped here for a late dinner as a backup plan when our first choice was closed. Talk about good luck. The food was incredible. The mussels were some of the best I've ever had. Everything our group had was great. I saw some of the other reviews were not impressed with the food, but we certainly were. A relatively... More

On entering we were told that the restaurant was fully booked later fir a private affair, but that we could eat inside or in the garden, from a reduced menu. Everything was delicious and fresh.
