I heard a few months back this was the place to watch Alabama football. Been here for 3 games and enjoyed it every time. Good staff, spacious place with a few pool tables also. ROLL TIDE!!

First time here and decided to come with friends for St. Patrick's Day. We mainly came for drinks but ended up ordering food too. They had some festive specials, like corned beef and several Irish whiskeys. My group was more in the mood for some mixed drinks which they didn't offer on the menu (note: they may charge an up-charge... More

We were to meet up with friends and they chose this place...it was their new favorite hang out! We were NOT disappointed in the least. We were greated warmly when we entered and when we explained that we were meeting friends we were directed to the bar...we mistakenly seated ourselves at a table which is usually reserved for the dinner...

We got in for the event but we were passing for the dinner and we were immediately impressed .The service was very friendly and attentive to details. A restaurant that we can advise. Good job.

Located close to the BU campus it is a good college bar that gets crowded late. Friendly staff. I visited while attending a conference at BU and although I was probably the oldest in the place, I was comfortable. The food was typical but good bar food. The Pretzel with Beer Sauce is excellent!

We came here one night for special edition Avengers trivia. I came for the drinks... and my boyfriend went for Avengers trivia. Overall it was a decent night but it is definitely a college bar. The seating is tight once it fills up, but we were seated pretty quickly near the window (at a table that wobbled worse than I've... More

I really enjoy coming to White Horse for Trivia (which they offer multiple days per week). Their Buffalo Chicken Tenders are pretty good as well. I can't say I love coming when it gets to the wee hours during the weekend, but overall it's a great sports bar to hang out with friends at while in Allston.

Great open atmostphere and delicious food (also really good lemonade!). I had the turkey reuben with veggies and my honey had the cadillac burger with fries. It sounds strange, but it was so refreshing to have a... More

We frequent the trivia nights on Sunday and Wednesday nights. Every day there's a different special and it's always a good deal. The steak tips are good, and the burgers are pretty good. They used to have poutin on the menu but it's not there anymore, which was disappointing. The salads are pretty big and good. Great place to go... More
