Very convenient to the Paradise and BU arena if you are in-town for a show or game. Large bar and plenty of seating. Rather random placement of the waiter/ess station makes getting to the head a confusing adventure. Table service is usually fast, but you may have to wait a while at the bar to get the bartender’s attention. While not as extensive a selection as the Sunset Grille down the street, the Cantina still has 35+ taps and many bottles available. There is usually at least one rare beer on-tap at any given time. Food is standard pub fare - they steam their burgers if you are interested in trying something a little different.
Lots of taps here, rotated on a weekly basis. Always a surprise what you’ll see on the menu. Less taps than Sunset Grill, yes, but I never had a problem with Cantina’s beers not being fresh. They offer samplers of whatever you’d like on tap in sets of four. Again, the nachos are excellent for the money, and tasty, as are just about all the American - style foods here. Extensive burger selection. Extensive tequila selection. A solid representation of New England beers. A more relaxed place than Grill, and closer to main parts of Boston. MBTA Green Line B to St. Paul’s Street takes you to its doorstep. On a more quiet part of BU campus.

A chilled out version of the Grill, with a smaller selection of taps. A nice place, with good service and a pretty good selection. Food is good, but nothing too amazing.
Great selection of pub food - think burgers, sandwiches, and a few specials e.g. swordfish.
Drinks range from cocktails to a big (20+) rotating tap list. Not a lot of rare stuff but it’s alright.
It’s other branch, the Sunset Bar & Grille, is smaller with better taps and even 4oz pours of Sam Adams Utopias for $22.
Prices are pretty standard as food and beer goes. but the sunday brunch has a pretty all you can eat menu of some Tex-Mex fair.
Restaurant/bar near BU. Decent selection, though they used to be known more for margaritas. Food is solid. For beer, you are much better off at the Sunset Bar and Grille though. It’s not that far away and worth the extra trip.

Quite a cool place to try some beers, they definitely have an extensive list with some nice choices, there was more than enough to tide me over. Some nice decor on the walls, although more of a ’not-so-fancy’ restaurant vibe to it than a bar one. The service was acceptable, not very fast, but I just learned to order my beers in advance. You can buy a selection of four taster glasses (I think they were 8oz), which I liked as it meant I could try far more beers. Worth going to even though it is a bit out of the way.

When it’s not too crowded, this is a good choice to bring out-of-town visitors. The food is fairly priced and the portions are filling. Sometimes the service is slow, but no worse than other restaurants. Contrary to previous reviewers, I usually get the proper glassware.
A short bike ride (medium about 20 minutes walk) from the mother place Sunset Grill. A smaller version of Sunset Grill. Similar in spirit, style, food and everything. Just smaller. “only” about 40 taps with a limited bottle list. Despite the “limited” tap-list I found that the beer were carefully selected. Very few big beer but still a few nice brews that you cannot find everywhere. Food menu is similar to Sunset Grill. Affordable varied greasy pub food. Full kitchen until 1am (nice!). Décor is a bit similar to Sunset Grill but with more fluorescent signs and also with louder pop music. On the plus side there is a very small patio in the front (something Sunset Grill doesn’t have) but it fits only 12 people or so.
