Had a late dinner with friends on Saturday night. Serve was very good bets I have had there in recent memory. Food was also improved since my last visit, but the best thing of all is the beer selection, fantastic. My server also know a lot a lot about the drink menu and was able to answer my questions!

Decided to try someplace different for the "team lunch" with the folks from the office (we usually just go to one of the local big box chain restaurants) and ended up at the Box Bar. Atmosphere is nice, service was great, and the food was tasty and a good value. We'll be back!

A longtime winner of locals' vote for best burger, "The Box" has lost that honor a while ago...as has the rest of its food. Locals say thumbs down...visitors seem to think it's something fun... Someone in charge of the food is either asleep or just comfortable because the great location brings people in... but it could be so much more... More

Went here on a Saturday lunch time to meet friends. Prices were reasonable and service was friendly and efficient. Portions were big for lunch time. Big range of beers.

We have returned to the Box Bar over and over again. Nice outdoor seating area facing Kellog Park in Downtown Plymouth. The menus at the Box are massive, plenty of drafts, and hundreds of bottle beer choices from around the globe. The food menu is also extensive, from appetizers, to soups, sandwiches, entrees, they stretch their offerings beyond average bar... More

Years ago, Box Bar was 'the' place to run for a quick, delicious burger, fries, cocktail and occasionally even nachos. We never went there for anything other than reasonably priced, good food on the fly. Over the years, as most adults know, things begin to change. Box Bar was renovated probably 15 years ago. The original building still exists with... More

This place has been here a long time, but instead of growing stale, they change things up just enough to keep it interesting without sacrificing tradition. I've been to retirement parties, Christmas parties, birthday parties, casual dinners, quick lunches and such here and so associate it with good times.

I have ordered the Guinness Stew on two occasions, the first time it was awesome, the second time, it tasted like they dumped water in it to stretch it out. Just ask to taste the stew before you order it. If it's thick and rich, enjoy. If not, skip it!
