Nice drinks after a show next door at Club Cafe. Friendly staff and close to our hotel. Good pour for the price.

We had an early dinner at Harry's. The service was very attentive since we were alone except for a few bar patrons. We opted to split a caesar salad and the signature chicken and waffles dish. The salad in no way resembled a caesar salad. There was not even a hint of garlic or anchovy. That said, it was quite... More

May not be Geoffrey's anymore but still a great place to come to eat and drink. Stopped in on Sunday for oysters ($1 an oyster sometimes) and drinks. Friend had a well made mixed drink and I had two glasses of wine. Good wine. Nice pour. Service was friendly and prompt. But the treat of the day were the rolls... More

We found this place on Google as "a place the locals go" and wanted to grab some lunch. It was a bit pricier than we expected but the food was outstanding. We would definitely stop in again, the next time we're in town.

We were there for an event and it was really great! Staff had prepared a stunning set-up of food as well as passing apps thru. The bar staff was awesome and never let a glass go long. The lobster roll was so fresh and chunky and there was a slider that was outstanding. The description says casual but it is... More

We went here mainly because I was a fan of Jay Santos when he was on top chef. We kind of expected it to be more touristy. It was not at all. The decor, the service, and the food was spectacular!! I highly recommend it!!

This brunch spot was perfect for our hangovers. The prices were fare and the drinks where good. The service was top notch and parking is actually really easy on the block.

While staying at the Lowes Hotel next door, my husband and I ventured over to Back Bay Harry's and were not dissapointed! We started off our meal enjoying assorted breads, not knowing that our delicious Brie appetizer also came with big slices of garlic bread! My husband had the Signature boneless fried chicken which he enjoyed and I enjoyed the... More

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
