Left the aqaurium n were looking for a place to eat n stumbled on this place. Sat outside in the rain and took a little time 2 get our food but they were busy n well well worth the wait. The flat bread magarita was amazing and absolutly delicious. My husband got a burger with a egg on it and it was delicious as well. We both shared out food and it amazed me that the food was perfect just as it was. No pepper or any else needed. Would recommend to anyone who wants to eat exquisite delicious food

From the day internet buzz started building about this place I had a feeling it was going to deliver. Having previously worked under exec chef Keenan Langlois, I knew what to expect food-wise, yet I was still blown away by the creativity of the menu and the flawless execution. I ordered the burger, rare, and it was even more bloody and juicy than I expected! The sauce was surprisingly peppery, and the fried egg was cooked to perfection (I.e. first bite releases all the yolk). The fries were golden brown and well seasoned, just the way I like it. I also ordered the cod fritters for the table, and they were to die for. I was slightly disappointed with my beer choice (a black ipa from otter creek), however that was my fault for trying an east coast version of a beer perfected on the west coast. I also tasted the Traveler's Summer Shandy, however it was a bit too sweet for indoor dining. The service, which is usually my favorite part of dining experiences, was also exquisite. I was with two out-of-town friends with minimal English abilities, and the staff was extremely accommodating and patient. They went above and beyond to make us feel at home, and I am very grateful for that. Overall, three thumbs up in every category. I can't wait to return and try out other menu items!

Stopped in for lunch yesterday. The beer I wanted from the menu wasn't actually on tap any more. Ordered the Granary burger, which was aparently just beef, cheese, and a brioche bun. They gave a side of some sauce that I added to give the burger a little something. I'd ask for lettuce and tomato next time. The burger tasted fine, though, and the fries were really good.

My wife and I were looking for a spot to grab a bite before a concert in Boston. We were walking around Quincy Market and the harbor and stumbled onto the Granary Tavern. It lacked the hustle and bustle of Quincy Market (a plus for us) and looked like a great spot to grab a tavern-style bite. We were seated quickly and had a pleasant waitress (though she did get the origin of the Curious Traveler Summer Shandy wrong - not her was also wrong on the printed menu). Drinks (iced tea for me and the above mentioned beer for my wife) were refreshing and pleasant. The food was where this place fell apart. We ordered fried brussel sprouts, chicken fried chicken and a plate of fish and chips to share (listed on the menu as a snack, an appetizer and a main meal). All 3 dishes came out simultaneously. Now I'm not a huge fan of brussel sprouts to begin with, but my wife likes them and this sounded intriguing. I was willing to try them, too. What came out was a pile of rubbish. Greasy, almost burnt tasting individual leaves of a brussel sprout. $5 for what looked like 3 brussel sprouts total, relieved of their original form and rendered tasteless - my wife wholeheartedly agreed. The benefit of the three items coming out together was the garlic aioli that came with the chicken to dip the brussel leaves in. I do consider myself a connoisseur of chicken fingers. These were the best part of our meal...but NOT chicken fried chicken. I lived in the south (SC and MS) and know what chicken fried is supposed to taste like. The four for $10 chicken fingers arrived with breading that lacked flavor and was confounded with the chicken being overcooked (dry) and fried in oil that hadn't been changed in some time (overly burnt/smokey). There was a nice spicy glaze on the chicken (not sure why - again...this is NOT chicken fried chicken), but they were served with the above mentioned garlic aioli. What an odd combination of flavors! And no, that's not "good" odd. Now, we're on to fish and chips which we were expecting to be good. After all, we're in Boston practically on the water. The two small pieces of fish were ok, but the breading was CHEWY. How do you fry something and have it come out chewy? Not good. And the "tartar" sauce? It was so thin you could pour it, as evidenced by the shallow pool of it underneath our scarce fries. I assume it must've spilled out on the trip up the stairs from the kitchen. The fries appeared to be homemade and were tasty. All in all? I'd grab a drink here and eat fries. For half a Benjamin Franklin bill...I expected a whole lot better than we received. I could have cut them some slack, but we ate about 4:30-5pm and they were not at all busy.

Walk in, sit down, order the fried chicken and waffles. Seriously. If you go here you might see me sitting at the bar, crooning "I Only Have Eyes For You" at my plate. If you do ignore my advice, everything else on the menu is reasonably priced and delicious (especially the flatbreads and the Guinness with the vanilla vodka on top -- mmmm). Pro tip: This is an excellent spot for large groups/corporate events.
