But, then again, it is worth sharing. Not quite a hole in the wall but think of a brick-walled shipping container filled with 50s memorabilia and old TV shows playing above the bar (Elvis skeptics should avoid the Elvis shrine close to the front) - it really looks like nothing from the outside, but inside it is warm , friendly,...

The burger I had was excellent, along wiht the baked french fries. And the beer was also great. The bar was a little too dark (keeping in mind that I went at 5 pm) but the decoration is very fun.

Great little neighborhood bar. Very inviting owners and staff. Biggest hit: unbelievable food!! Red Snapper, Rainbow Trout, Ribs, Heirloom Tomatoes - all above the top! And there's The King, silently holding court at the end of the bar. Can't go wrong with a trip or two here.

Heard about this place in a guide book and it sounded like the perfect spot for a low key drink and food, but with some character. And it did not disappoint. My friend and I had food and drinks here. I had the scallop and risotto special (so delicious!) [$19] and my friend had the fish tacos (she said it... More

Great neighborhood spot typically packed with hipsters. Decent drink selection with creative bartenders that are happy to come up with something unique. If you can find a table, I recommend the food, which is always better than expected. Do not expect to watch a game here; although they have a TV, it is usually tuned to cartoons or other classic...

Don't go if you're uncomfortable in a noisy bar, which is what it often is. Go with friends, have a few drinks - then prepare to be wowed by the tasty, seasonal food. Reasonable prices too.

We checked out Delux on a friend's recommendation after dinner in the area and were glad we did. From the Elvis lamp to the Golden Girls painting, this place was so much fun. The drinks were solid and the bartender was great. Plan ahead and bring cash and allow for plenty of time to soak up the character.

Stopped here while walking back to the hotel. Great little spot. And I mean little. Atmosphere was awesome. Bartender was friendly. We tried the grill cheese and a couple other items and everything was good. We were pretty well along in our evening and probably embarrassed ourselves a bit but I loved this place. I would gladly go back.

Neighbourhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
