This is a great dive bar. Nothing fancy, just a local, laid back place to grab a beer and maybe listen to some Boston accents. Good beer selection, and cash only. Get the tater tots!

Well over 100 beers to choose from. Great service. Server was friendly. Small space just off the Hynes convention center and Hilton. Bar type food. Dead authors mug club requires drinking 150 or so different beers in 180 days (see photo).

Wife and I came here for lunch. Place was pretty empty at noon. Service was very slow. We got our appetizer and meals at the same time (30mins after ordering ). Burger was decent. Just 1 staff member working and didn't make himself too visible....More

I walked past and was almost going to give this place a miss. Glad I didn't, friendly place offering a good selection of local taps.

Stopped in to have a drink with a friend. Small dive bar and I enjoyed it. Great drink selection. One note, they only take cash.

a 25' foot tavern connected to a parking garage. It was fun. Would return for a wine or beer...No spirits!
