Reliably great food and drinks. This is a local favorite and should not be missed. Good specials and oyster selection.

Nice spot near Endicott College for a burger. Not a lot of area to wait at when waiting for a table. The bathroom could have been attended to more. Overall nice visit.

Hi Mari, Thank you for taking the time to write us a four star review! I agree, we are a great place for a burger! The only downside to our restaurant is the smaller size, which unfortunately doesn't allow for a spacious waiting area. I hope you are able to visit us again soon the next time you are in... More

This very attractive restaurant is located on a main road. Its very warm and inviting looking.Parking can be somewhat limited. The menu has lots of interesting and varied choices and the food is good, although I thought the salad preparation is a little weak. It's not far from Endicott College so if you are visiting there, it's a nice spot... More

Thanks Bryna for your review, Parking is a little rough around here but the church next door allows Hale Street guests to park there. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the food other than the salad. We always try to improve with feedback so please let your server know if you ever have an issue with anything you order.... More

We recently stopped by while visiting my son who attends college down the street. Very clean, nice tavern atmosphere. I had a salad which was very good. My husband and two kids were all happy with their fish and chips and quesadilla. Will definitely go back again when I'm in town.

This is one of my sister's favorite places, and now I see why! They literally have everything you could possible want at a restaurant. Craving sushi? They have it! Burgers? They have it!

Hi dgobs, I sent you a message but you never responded back so I wanted to try to reach you through the actual review. I spoke with the employees working on that Sunday and they have no knowledge of you coming in and putting a name on the waiting list. Were you perhaps in on a different day? I also... More

Apps and sandwiches are great. Wing night can't be beat. The entres are good and some of the sushi is also. Great atmosphere. Can be noisy and crowded.

Hi Torrey, Thank you for leaving us a review. Great to see you enjoy the bar food and atmosphere. Having one big space definitely makes the sound level a little higher and we do get crowded some nights. We hope to see you again soon.

Restaurant/Pub atmosphere, full menu, active bar scene (20's-40's). Open for late dinner, but there was a half hour wait. Nice place. Would go back.

Friendly service and decent food and beer; that's all we expected and that's all we got. The sushi list is large and I enjoyed mine, while my wife went for a salad. Personally, I would have been happier without the televisions, but that's the kind of place it is. A great place to bring kids during the day; there are... More

Hi abecedarius, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. The televisions have been requested by our regulars so they can come out to eat with the family and still keep track of the Boston sports. Unfortunately you can't please everybody at the same time.
