Completely missed the Colonial Ale. Waitress was very nice and so was the bartender. The hostess was rude in my opinion. My clam chowder was ok and the baked beans were disappointing. One time for the experience is probably enough. Everything is expensive here. I am rating this as a beer place not as a restaurant.

This is supposed to be Americaís oldest restaurant. The atmosphere, decorations and food were excellent. I highly recommend the steamed oysters and clam chowder. The beer selection, however, is much to be desired. They have Sam Adams and Harpoon, plus Colonial Ale and Red Brick Ale. It was, however, WAY overpriced. Iím glad I went, and the seafood was delicious, but Iíll try to find cheaper places to eat next time.

History and ambiance rule here, along with a decent selection of good seafood. Service was average, beer list is typical and modest, bill is surprisingly $$$ (but very good fare). Worth a stop.

Visited the UOH during my trip to the ABCF, I am surprised to find this place on Beeradvocate, but i will review none the less. Located near market/seaport area in Boston, The UOH is supposidly the oldest resturant in America and a favorite of JFK. The UOH has a small bar on the main floor with seating areas on 3 levels. Booths where private and gave a good intimate feel, may be a good place to woo a love interest. Food is mostly seafood. We were served by a crabby waitress (excuss the pun), but she was prompt and not over bearing. Food was served fairly quick and was good, definalty not worth the prices they charged though. Beer selection was mostly Sam Adams and Harpoon. Nothing you could not find in any other bar in Boston. Beer was served in a frosted glass. :( Overall, kind of a tourist trap... but not a terrible place to visit if decent seafood is on the to do list while visiting boston.

Americaís oldest resto according to the plaque. Lots of differernt old rooms with different menus in each. They have the major usual beers on draft in Boston plus Boston Beerís Colonial Ale which is pretty tasty stuff. Itís located on the Freedom Trail which is well marked and easy to follow on foot. They also have their own home cooked baked beans. And they go quite well with the Colonial Ale!
