I have been here several times and it is a great place to get a good cheap breakfast and drink. Love the mimosas and omelets for a good price. If you are in Boston looking for a breakfast this is a great place to go for quick and easy.

Earlier this trip we paid twice as much for worse food and even worse service in a place a block away. What a change! Service was as perfect as it gets, and there was a nicely varied menu (given that all was pub food). My beef tips were rare, as requested, and came with ample fries. The chili, alas, seemed... More

Pour house is cozy restaurant in Boston that serves inexpensive food (you can eat by less than 10$ a tasty choice from a long list of sandwiches, texmex etc. Local tap beer is well represented. We visited Pour house in the evening, so the place was noisy because of music and simultaneous basket ball game. A good atmosphere!

We needed a quick bite to eat while in the city, so decided on the Pour House. They had a special going on for 1/2 price dippers, so we all decided to try them. The French dipper was my favorite. Good food and easy on the wallet. Will definitely return.

Ordinary bar. Quite boring and too laud for midnight. Not so busy during mid week days. Young public mostly. Several screens all showing sport games.

We went there for Saturday Brunch and found a noisy rocking place with good food and service. We saw a lot of wonderful plates coming out of the kitchen and the bar was serving up a fair number of tapped and bottled beers.

We read some reviews that this was a good bar with great prices, and we weren't disappointed. Really cheap for the area, and pretty full on a Saturday night. The music was a little loud, but the bartender happily turned it down when we asked. Good food, good service, and good specials. Saturday night was half priced burgers. Paid less... More

My dad and I went here for breakfast the last time we were in Boston and it was so worth the walk in the drizzle. I got a strawberry waffle and it was HUGE! I couldn't even eat it all. My dad was really impressed with the food he got as well. I wish we had spent more time in... More

Lots of drink and food options, get there early on Red Sox Game night, no place to sit if you don't. Food is good and portions generous.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
