We stumbled upon this place while wandering and ended up firmly placed at the bar for most of the afternoon! While it's not a glamorous bar, we knew it was branded as a 'dive bar' thanks to the wonders of google before we went in. If you don't like a real dive bar you won't like this, however if you...

I stopped in with my wife and son after an event in the city. The food was excellent and reasonably priced, the drinks too. It was nice to find a comfortable place not filled with suits, kids, or knit cap wearing coffee sippers. As an added bonus we had a great conversation with the owner and his wife. Wonderful people!... More

MERCHANT MARINERS READ: I'm a merchant mariner and was trying to buy a round of beers for a couple of my shipmates. The doorman would not take my federally issued captains license as ID (even though legally and quite nearly visibly it is usable as and identical to a passport) which was fine. I walked back to the boat and... More

its not for everyone, but I love it. Good food, cheap drinks, friendly locals, family owned and run. My favorite place in faneuil hall. It has a dive bar feel amidst all the other crowded kiddie bars in that area. The food is really good and inexpensive too.

If I could give this place 0 stars, I would. Sure, they have cheap-ish beer and food, but is it worth feeling unsafe for that?? I recently found out that a female friend of mine was attacked in this place. By another patron? Nope. By the MALE bartender!! Unfortunately, it was the end of the night, so nobody was there...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
