We came for brunch on a Saturday around 2 pm and ended up eating a good comfort meal and appreciating a well-chosen draught list including many of the latest top local picks like pale ales from Trillium. Beers tried were in pristine condition and while it seems to be a very popular place, we did not have to wait very long for a table and were comfortable and well serviced as soon as we got one. Iíd definitely come back, but would worry about the crowd.

Hipster bar. Small but solid tap selection including one from Trillium I didnít see elsewhere. Food was solid/artisanal.

I donít get it. Why would anyone want to stand in line for an hour with stroller-pushing families just to get into a noisy cramped space and wait for someone whoís clearly cooler than you to bring you beer that you could have at Sunset Grill? Because youíre a hipster. Thatís why.

Stopped in for brunch on a Sunday afternoon. The bartenders and staff for friendly and jovial even with the place at full capacity. The breakfest sandwich I ordered was tasty and my buddy enjoy his burger. The draft list was pretty solid and had a few rarties. With Sunset Grill right down the road, it maybe hard for me to stop back here but it is in the relm of possiablity.

Stopped here after Sunset. Completely different vibe. Smallish inside - Great place to hang out, much more limited beer selection, but very well though out. Knowledgeable staff, correct glassware. Did not eat here though.

Visited last weekend while I was in the area. Right away I knew this is the kind of bar thatís constantly packed and cramped like a tin box of sardines: there was a line to the front door because of the limited seats available; I could smell everyoneís body odor inches from my face. Just like finding the perfect parking spot, I leapt to the nearest stool as soon as one of the full customers had left the bar. Tap list was extensive and moderately priced. I will have to say, however, that the food here was reasonably sized, but not necessarily as big as I thought it shouldíve been. Itís probably no surprise, as is often the case, that I simply didnít enjoy it all that much. I ordered an "everything" burger, which had cost me nearly $13. I could have destroyed the Happy Menu with that kind of money. It was one burger on a large bun and fries. Yawn. The bartenders here were the real stars; obviously great service and enjoyable taps means Iíll likely be back, Iíll just skip the food.

good spot, nice vibe, was somewhat previously overserved by the time I arrived (11 hill farmstead drafts will do that) Bartenders were quick & on top of things. selection was solid. I heard the tacos next door are top notch (same owner I believe)

My wife and I visited after watching our nephew play goalie for Boston College in soccer. Trendy part of town with lots of shops, restaurants and bars. Very limited seating at bar and tables. Tables are lined up next to each other on the right side while the bar is on the left side. You sit very close to your neighbor, so if you are next to a couple of drunk girls, it can hinder your experience. Selection is great both tap and bottles. Food was excellent for mostly being a bar. Service was hit and miss, as our waiter had multiple tables. Overall a good place for both beer and food.
