Lots of drink and food options, get there early on Red Sox Game night, no place to sit if you don't. Food is good and portions generous.

Been visiting off and on for 20 years. During a recent trip to Boston we ate here for breakfast a couple of times and had dinner on Christmas Day after Rogue 1 and the night before we headed back to the UK. Friendly staff, nice selection of food with lightning fast service. Kids loved it, parents loved it too!

You have to go there for a drink ! It's a good spot for atmosphere and good drinks. Very good portions on a budget. But, the food is good but not excellent and again really cheap. This is not a classy bar but a fun place to be with friends.

Food was alright. Service was crap. I’ve been serving and bartending for close to 6 years and have received MANY compliments on my attitude and work ethic, so I know good service when I see it, believe me. We sat down at around 5, and after about 5 minutes a heavier woman comes up to us and asks if we... More

Recommended to us by our hotel staff. Really good menu. Best cup of tea of this trip. Nicely cooked eggs and bacon, good service and reasonably priced.

We had a breakfast at the Pour House and unlike the other restaurants in Boston the prices are very reasonable … so that didn’t put me in the poor house. Service was good and attentive, prices were great, particularly for Boston.

Everything was pretty packed and we managed to find the last table here. Glad we did -- great staff - super helpful, food came pretty quickly and was fine (waffles, why yes, thank you!). Prices were great, particularly for Boston.

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.
