Stopped by for drinks and appetizers after Bruins winning game on Dec 31st. The bar was very busy and we were seated upstairs in a booth. Service was quick and food was tasty. Great Sangria!!

Went in here to get a couple of drinks before a show at TD Garden. Service was fast and friendly. Sat at bar but did not eat.

After attending a game at TD Garden we called in for a drink and meal. The place was overflowing but they found us a table upstairs and the drinks and food came quite quickly. Obviously they staffed up to handle the crowd. Nice meal, good service and reasonable price.

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.
