This is an interesting place to review, as Ive never intentionally set out to come here. Its always a late night, post BA fest at the Seaport idea. And its almost always with brewery friends. So after a long day of drinking and pouring beers, where do the brewers go when theyre in Boston? This place. Its great. Huge, open space, great beer menu, and good food. Its certainly worth a stop if youre in the area. And likely even worth going there earlier in the day before youve started drinking. I just know the next time Ill visit will probably be after a few other places. This is the place you end up at, not the one you start at.
Twenty some beers on tap and a nice bottle list available here, and it is next door to the Trillium pick up station. Service was great. Food was excellent. Perhaps a bit pricey. Great seafood selection. Has about everything you could want.
Interesting place that looks raw which fits in with it being a beer geek place. However most of the clientele on the Tuesday I was there for lunch looked like businessmen and the food selection seems more like a good sea food restaurant than your typical water hole. Good selection of beers, however at the day none from Trillium. Very nice seafood, had oysters and lobster tacos. Prices of food and beer not cheap.
Visited May 2016. 20-30 beers on tap. The selection was excellent. They also have several bottles available for purchase, but if I remember correctly, they were very pricey. The food was fantastic. Weíll definitely be back on our next visit to Boston. Highly recommended.
Thank you Row 34...you saved the start of my Memorial Day weekend...which was based on visiting Trillium for the first time...but after 5 1/2 hours of traffic from north NJ (shouldíve been 4)...we were traffic frazzled and beer parched (if you read my Trillium review youíll see I used those terms there...so shoot me...I like saying them...just not being them...lol!). What my friends who recommended Trillium forgot to tell me is you canít drink there...well Trillium sent me here...and "here" fixed the problem mighty quick. We found a single seat on the corner of the bar and both squeezed in (it was happy hour/holiday weekend crowded...so we were very lucky)...and the bartender was great. We were drinking Trillium in no time...and eating some really great appetizers. I canít wait to come back...but of course next time Iíll make Trillium and Row 34 "the plan". You should too.
About 20 or so taps usually chosen quite well. Iíve seen sours from the US and Belgium along with beers from local brewery, Trillium, and Stone (including Enjoy By). Great tap condition always with a finger of foam. Glassware is mostly in sniffers for the beer geeks.
Restaurant is great for fresh oysters and other Boston favs like lobster and chowdaí
A lot of granite and stone decor. Difficult to get seating from time to time but the standing space for drinkers is fine.
As itís next to Trillium Brewery, theyíll gladly store your beer in their fridge during your visit. Now thatís service.
I love the raw bar/craft beer concept. Itís a lovingly restored warehouse thatís been turned into the kind of place that you can take a date to and also gets packed for happy hour. They donít have a ton of things, and what they do have ainít cheap, but they have a lot of good stuff on tap thatís clearly thoughtfully curated. I didnít have a lot of food but the clam chowder was fantastic. They even make their own saltines. This Congress street is clearly Bostonís craft beer mecca and Row 34 is itís crown jewel.
Awesome restaurant right next door to Trillium. I stop by here after getting my bottles there. Super solid, well picked and varied beer list with heavy hitters like Second Fiddle, lots of trillium beers, Jacks Abby and other sought after brews. Service is impeccable, and extremely knowledgeable about both beer and wine, the employees actually know their stuff, they donít just shoot off something they learned by heart. The food menu is solid, they have tons of top notch seafood, with some more standard items for those who donít want to partake in the raw bar. Prices are a bit steep, but itís definitely that kind of place. Definitely recommend.
