Went with colleagues after work and, although pretty busy, the staff were great finding us a "quiet" spot where we could gather together and chat. Waiters were always there when needed and kept us supplied with beers and appetizers as necessary.

This is a great place to stop on the way to South Station to grab a beer or two. Service was friendly and accommodating. The tap selection was varied enough to keep it interesting. We didn't eat, so I cna't comment on the food.
