The burgers were first rate here. Excellent flavorful beef, thick patty, bun unobtrusive but up to the task of keeping the sandwich together. But it comes with fries. To minimize carbs we asked if we could substitute a Caesar salad side. They said yes for $4 each. Huh? This is a gastropub, not the 4 Seasons. But we went ahead,... More

We went to Hops 'n Scotch because we'd been to the Actors' Shakespeare Company and there was 20% discount coupon in the program breaking our rule to never go to a restaurant with an "'n" in its name. Bad, very bad idea. We arrived about 4pm and were handed a half sheet of paper menu with a few appetizers, a... More

With much anticipation, we visited Hops n Scotch for the first time. Beer choices were great! Problem may have been the time of day (around 4:00 on a Sunday). We were told we were "between menus" (Lunch/Dinner) and only had 6 or 7 items to choose from. All three of us had burgers, which were fine, but kind of frustrating... More

Stopped in here while in town for business and found a seat at the bar. The atmosphere was good and an extensive beer list - but that is where I should have stopped. I took up the suggestion from the bartender for their shrimp tacos for dinner and was immediately disappointed. The meal lacked flavor and excitement. I was shocked... More

Nice place to spend time with friends! We went to have dinner and some beer. We waited 30-40 minutes but the food was great. We order pasta and grilled cheese. Both really good!!!

Busy restaurant with many guests, including around the bar. There was a good atmosphere. We were assigned a table on the 1st floor of the restaurant. There were many people too, which unfortunately also led to a lot of high talk. We ordered and got pretty fast starter served. The soup was lovely. For main course, we ordered the Wisconsin... More

A great stop to chill out in Brookline, they have a wide selection of beers and the atmosphere is great for weekends, but be early because it tends to be packed.

Ok, I'm old enough to not be a student. This place is really for BU students who are looking for beer and carbs. Don't go here for a good meal if you are a tourist.

Came back in from the city and was looking for a night cap. Came across this place and went looking for it. Found it to have a good number of people at 11pm on a Tuesday night. Great selection of drafts on tap along with full liquor. Bartender friendly and mixture of seating arrangements to keep it comfortable. Will go... More

My husband and I found this place on trip advisor on the night we arrived in Boston. It was a short walk from our hotel in Brookline. We wanted to grab a few drinks and dinner after traveling all day. Unfortunately, this place fell flat for me. Love the name, but the food was just not there for me. We... More
