We were looking for a good burger in Boston and we came across this restaurant. A few of us had the 5 Napkin burger. OMG!!! I went to cut it in half and a molten of gruyere cheese flowed out the sides! The burger had the perfect amount of caramelized onions on it and a delicious garlic rosemary sauce on... More

Love their happy hour special. Sliders, tuna to stones and wings, so yummy!!!! Lunch & dinner might be a bit pricey, but it's Back Bay, I would recommend come here for happy hour special only.

We shared a big burger and sweet potato fries and it was enough! Kind of pricey, but it was excellent. $14 burger; $5.50 fries. Would definitely go there again.

Had lunch with my daughter on a weekend I visited her in Boston. First time we both tried this place and I ordered the burger salad. The burger itself was very good and tasted great! A bit pricey though but service was good.

The house burger was ok, quality meet with Gruyere but nothing to write home about. The Merguez burger however was delicious and out of this world. Loved it. Fries were just ok and for 6$ the side a little too much. The 11$ carrot cake was excellent! Service is weird. I read other reviews talking about a waiter rolling his... More

The Bloody Mary was spicy and amazing. One of the best I've ever had. Fun garnish of pickles, stuffed olive. Onion ring stack was crispy and melt in your mouth.

Love this place for a basic burger. You can get as fancy as you'd like but when you just need meat on a bun. This is the place. It you want a step up try Bar Boulud.

The restaurant wasn't crowded but the service was slow. My "medium" burger was served rare. Other than the gruyère cheese, nothing special. Blueberry lemonade was rather tasteless. I would not go here again.

You know the feeling when you personally have eaten at a restaurant in another city and wish you had not gushed on how good your experience was. This was that time... Four couples after spending the afternoon together and the restaurant was across from the hotel. Started poorly when I called for a reservation and was told they could not... More

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
