Hip, cozy neighborhood gastropub dispensing craft cocktails & modern comfort food until late.- Google
"Had the grilled calamari and corn and crab beignets."
"Late-night dining, fine chef craft, dark, comfortable, and cool South End vibe."

I absolutely love this place. Such a cool, laid back vibe. Never too crowded. Great drinks and food. Super neighborhood spot.

I am really starting to love Southie. There I said it. The restaurants I've been to are all above excellent including this one. My friend and I sat outside, ate hummus topped with freshly chopped scallions and bread while we meandered through the menu. Annette ordered the tuna tartare and I ordered a wonderful toasted orzo and argula salad with oranges, almonds and a honey soy dressing. Waiter was very friendly, but a bit pushy.

Dark, loud, crowded but so much fun. I love coming here for a late dinner and drinks. I love the fish dishes and a great deal! I am addicted to the St. Germain cocktail and this pear gimlet they have. The drinks are great and the bar is nice. There can be quite a wait for a table at time as it is small so come on the later side.

It's really a great place to have a brew and great food. Upscale pub with a good ambiance, fresh young(er) crowd. Steak frites was cooked to order. Had the grilled calamari and corn and crab beignets. Practically fine dining food in a pub.

Funky hole-in-the-wall... we waited for an hour for a table, but the bartender made us delicious drinks and the host kept track of who had been waiting expertly. Delicious food and so many options (ordered an octopus appetizer and the catfish entree); I have to go back and try everything I missed.

"great food, cosy atmosphere and very friendly service. the ""shaved mushrooms"" were surprisingly fresh and tasty. also try the veggie stew and the steak. you won't be dissapointed. funny fact: no matter how many people sit on the table, you ll only get three slices of bread! (?)"

A solid option across the board. If the pork terrine appetizer special is on the menu, get it; very nicely prepared with houseground mustard makes a great start to the meal. The entrees were good but not great, if Zagat offered a 2.5 rating for food I would be using it here. Understated clean decor and straightforward service - all in all a place worth visiting.
