A number of faithful Fenway fans had recommended this Top Chef (Stephanie Faison) restaurant to me. When my sweet BBQ loving son-in-law scored tickets to a Red Sox Yankee 4th game show down, I knew THIS was the place to eat. We arrived to Sweet...More

Read the reviews. Saw the guides and recommendations for Boston dining. What a letdown. Too much good BBQ around to settle for this place. Go somewhere else. Mediocre at best.

loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find
victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located
within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign
is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the

I've only ever gone with a reservation. I often see people waiting to be seated when I am there, but I'm sure the wait isn't too onerous should you visit without a reservation.
