We were blown away by the service and the quality of the food here. It is NOT your average pub! The baked beans were phenomenal as was everything else we ordered. There was even a piano player to entertain us.

This was our first food stop in Boston and we were pleasantly surprised. We were seated right away, the waiter was friendly and attentive. We ordered lobster mac and cheese. The portion was very generous and they even split into two bowls for my husband...and I. Not to mention, the food was amazing. The price of food was a bit steep but it is everywhere now unfortunately. If you are in Boston, I highly recommendMore

Doesn't even deserve one star, 2 adults one with medical issues which effects the amount of food that can be eaten. Absolutely no adult may order from the kids menu, like what? Never been told that before and was accommodated at every other restaurant we...visited while there. Just to add there was another adult with me that was planning on a regular "adult" sized meal and already had one on the table and would have consumed a few more of the watered down mixed drinks you served her. Your loss we went somewhere else, had better timeMore

We came here for a business dinner, but wanted something casual. This was the perfect spot. The environment is great, a little more relaxed that where you typically go, but still with really great food, and great options. Of all of these places I went...in Boston, this is the one that I would actually go back and would highly recommend!More

Great pub located near the harbor. If you're craving a burger or interested in trying the best Boston Baked Beans, this is your place. The Boston Brown Bread is also quite good. Recommend reservations.

From start to finish the staff at Bostonia House was over the top accommodating for our gathering. Our server and everyone that supported her were fantastic and the food was a true hit with everyone that attended. If you go, get the donut holes!!!!

We attempted to go for dinner but could not get in without reservations so we waited until the next day for lunch. I strongly recommend reservations because this place filled quickly even at lunch time on a Thursday. Service was excellent and food is pricey...for lunch but very good. We had shrimp cocktail, a lobster roll and a burger with lobster. Would visit again.More

Bostonia Public House is a well put together establishment. It could easily be a high end restaurant with its location and décor, but it chooses the loud feel after 9pm like so many restaurants in the vicinity. Luckily we went early on our first visit...and sat outside. I enjoyed the salad and I split the chips appetizer with my wife. She ordered seafood which I tried not to smell. The service was friendly.More

Meter parking on the street. No valet that I'm aware of, check with the restaurant directly. There are several parking garages within walking distance.
