We came for a simple dinner. And that was what we got. We tried their Clam Chowder, but it was hard to find the clan between all the potatoes. We tried their Scallop wrapped in bacon. The scallop was there, but they was dry and...More

The location was hard to find - as it seems like it is in an alley. The food was good and the waitress was very nice. The prices were fair. Would highly recommend this bar.

Another wonderful 2nd-floor bar/restaurant in Boston! We really enjoyed eating at the bar, visiting with the bartender, Sara. The service was amazing and the décor was fun & upbeat. My fish-&-chips was okay, but the seafood roll had way too much salt and mayonnaise. The...More

This made me feel like a local Bostonian. Central location on a little side street. Up the stairs and the nice tavern is cozy. People were nice and friendly. I liked that they were open late. I got calamari, clam chowder and the Cuda Roll...More

Definitively the kind of place I like very much. And Barracuda has [one of the] BEST Clam Chowder I had EVER. Their calamaris and buffalo wings were also worth climbing the steps. Good selection of beers and nice atmosphere far away from the tourist traps...More

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!!
