This is a modern building built to look like the original, heritage one. It seats about 30 inside, at communal picnic-style tables, which can be good or bad depending on your mood and who you share with. We had lunch here in late August, close...More

Food was nothing special, great atmosphere, good for lunch. Parking is limited so plan ahead. Quite a small venue.

Ridiculous. $84 for fish n chips, bison burger, one beer, & cobbler. Chips were great. Bison burger was comparable to a Costco burger. Desert was skimpy. We weren’t given the option to sit inside. First and last visit.

The Wildcat Cafe is located in Old Town and has a great patio overlooking the Back Bay. It's a great spot to have a drink on a nice summer day. On the downside, I recently ordered the Bison burger and it wasn't great. The burger...More
