Professional service the moment you walk in. They actually remember to bring me my chowder appetizer. Tavern in the Square down the street struggle with this frequently. Food and drinks are great along with discussions about the new season of South Park. Eavesdropping on other tables conversations is also ideal. At meal's end, I had half a loaf of bread... More

The Fours is a convenient place to eat before an event at the Garden. They move you in and out quickly. The food is average. The portion size is average. The price is average. The service is pretty good though. I tried the fish sandwich. It was average. The beer was fresh and cold though.

The scallops with sweet potato fries is excellent. Stop here for lunch before the Celtics or Bruins play. Great atmosphere and really nice sports memorabilia.

Excellent place after the game to grab food and drink plus it is reasonable and good. There was no wait. We went right upstairs and sat down. A true sports bar

I came by myself and didn't want to leave! I had the infamous Bobby Orr sandwich, which was great. Service was excellent, place was clean, staff were friendly.

The walls are covered with sports memorabilia, so it was fun to look around before our food arrived. The food was good, but not great. (The fries were heavy with grease.) This was a good place for stop and eat before a Celtics game. However, it got very crowded as game time neared. (I suggest going early!)

Visited twice, enjoyed the bar area for relaxing beer and one time watching Monday football. Bar staff pleasant and not over bearing. Good selection of beers. Food menu was good choices, and we both enjoyed everything. Fast and hot, and tasty. Would visit again

Great sports bar and the appetizers were yummy. The bartender was very helpful with deciding what beer to choose, and recommended the appetizer that had a sampling of chicken fingers, potato skins, and steak egg rolls - those were great!

I stop in often with my boyfriend either before or after concerts. It is convenient to North Station and the commuter rail/subway. My boyfriend really likes the sports bar atmosphere and watching the games (I could do without, wish they would have one large screen somewhere with just news on it, and also wish they would use closed captions, because...

The Fours is just a half block down Canal Street from the TD Gardens (Celtics,Bruins). What I like most abort the Fours is it doesn't have that 'pub smell," you know, that stale overnight beer smell. The place was clean although the seating (booth) had very straight back wooden (hard) seating - not too comfortable. As far as beers they... More
