Not totally sure why this place is so highly rated. The cuda roll was very good. Meatballs were terrible flavor and texture. The scallops with turkey bacon were decent. Service was fine. Use fans not air conditioning which could make for an uncomfortably hot meal....More

Stopped here for a quick bite, bouncer friendly at the door and likes to joke around when you first walk in. Nice size menu with a nice choice of beers to choose from. The fish tacos were to die for (must try) . Good choice...More

Nice bar in an alley. Clam chowder was good, also had the chopped salad. Hubby had steak sandwich which was fine. Had a beer and a Pissed off pirate, overall just fine for everything.

It was hard to find a good dive in downtown Boston. Tons of college bars and nice pubs, but not a little homey dive. Then, we found the Barracuda Tavern. This is a small bar up some stairs in what seems like an alley. But,...More

My husband and I visited on a week night. The beer selection is great. The wings and fires were excellent. I wouldn't suggest the bacon wrapped scallops (I think they were fried?!), but everything else was very good. Tia was our waitress, and she was...More

I recently visited Boston on a business trip. I was tired upon my return to the hotel, and Barracuda Tavern was in close proximity. Don't let the stairway or the bouncer intimidate you. They have a large selection of draft and bottled beer. The atmosphere...More

Small tavern a little off the beaten path but so glad we found it. Just a few steps off the Freedom Trail path but we wouldn't have found it (or tried it) without a local's recommendation.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

Hi, they do not have a specific kids menu but do have quite a selection for kids - Burgers, chicken fingers etc. Lunch would be most appropriate to bring children. Hope that helps!!
