Great pizza, Hot Girls, Great Dj – This was my first time going to Game On for a Celtics Game the other night ( Tuesday 2008 ) I would have to say it was as if we were at the Game. The staff and the crowd of people mad it think as if we were right there. The Dj, did an amazing job keeping the croad into the game during the commerical and during half time. Ther food was your typical bar food, but was actually better then most. For now on, i know where to go see a sports game. My friends and i truely fell in love with this place. Good times.
Great place to watch any game that is on! Amazing Service! Great Food! Wonderful experiences – Was at the Red Sox Game last nigt and had yet another great experience at Game On! The server we had knew everything she needed to know and was on top of everything. When we first walked there was a beer tub right there. It was amazing. We didnt even have to wait to get a drink. It was right there. I would highly suggest this place before a game! Great experience!!!!!
AVOID – Maybe u will get over the lazy bouncers that think they are da awesomeness...
If u are tryin to go for an international crowd this is not your place.
Bouncers think that they can own the place just cuz they are not capable of doing anything else but to reject people.
They have no rationality what so ever...they just like to be in charge.
Horrible service, ok food if they get it right...and that is just the beginning – Game On Boston. I have been here a few times, mainly because it close to my work or someone is curious about its newness. The hostesses and wait staff, though pleasant have very little knowledge of their own menu. The website and its menu have never been in sinc. I genuinely try and avoid 'Lame On' as I and many I know refer to it as, as often as possible. Its new, its near Fenway, they have big TVs...but thats about it. The employees are more concerned about talking to one another, or how they look and less about the customer who is waiting...over an hour once for breakfast in an empty restaurant!?! Needless to say our company (party of 8) left that morning without eating. And I believe thay have some wierd in flux time between 10am and like 11-1130am that they dont serve breakfast or lunch? I dunno, just a heads up. Other problems I have had are: take out orders are constantly wrong, was told 'there is no way to apply a tip when using a gift card' (this was on a take out order mind you), and the downstairs is obnoxiously loud. Service is always slow as hell, I can not stress this enough. The lunches I have had are decent, but the entress are waaay over priced, would never have dinner here. If 'Lame On' were a team, it would definitely be in last place and in need of some serious help.
Great Time! – I went to Game On last friday night to watch the start of March Madness. I always thought Game On was only good during RedSox season but friday night was a lot of fun. We split nachos, buffalo wings, and the spinach dip, all were very good. Our waitress was fun too. She came by often enough to fill our beers but wasn't hanging over our shoulder. Everyone seemed to be having a good time...even the staff. It's not often you visit a bar where the staff is having as much fun as the patrons. I will definitely be visiting Game On again! Go Sox!
The best sports bar ever – This is the hands down the greatest sports bar in Boston or anywhere else. The staff is great the female bartenders here are super hot, but they are real bartenders not like other place who have good looking staff bot have no clue what they are doing (gypsy revolution felt etc...). Plus the guy bartenders there are wonderfull, funny (sometimes outragessly so Jaimie and Joe work upstairs together and are two of this city's best bartenders and plaffoff each other it is a riot) and know how to make a great cocktail. So if you want great food awesome drinks hot bar staff and a ton of fun go here. Oh yeah they also have evry friggin game on about 100 + tv's
Sports fans of all stripes head to Fenway Park to cheer on their teams at the city's largest sports cafe. – The Scene
The Lyons Group (Kings, Avalon) has renovated a former bowling alley into a thoroughly modern sports cafe. Nestled into the side of Fenway Park, Game On! combines a cutting-edge sports bar atmosphere (more than 90 plasma and high-definition screens) with upscale comfort fare (wood-fired pizzas, steaks, chops, fresh fish). Patrons fill a sunny outdoor patio or head inside to drink and dine throughout the establishment's two levels (12,000 square feet).
Twin kitchens churn out classic American fare, and the lengthy menu runs the gamut from straightforward starters (authentic buffalo wings) to intricate entrees like seared jumbo sea scallops with goat cheese risotto. Heaping plates of nachos and fried calamari are ideal for groups, as are brick oven pizzas. (Offbeat toppings include spicy lamb, brie and Philly cheese steak.) Hearty diners skip burgers and sandwiches in favor of marinated steak tips and New York strips.
Great New Year's Party! – I was at Game On New Year's Eve for the second year in a row and had a great time!! The music was awesome and the food and dessert buffet were great. I came in with a group of 12 people and had no problem getting right through the door. We were checked off the list and given a wrist band within 5 minutes of arriving. The staff was awesome and the bartenders always made sure I had a drink in my hand. The vibe in the room was great too. By about 11pm, everyone was dancing downstairs. I look forward to many more parties like this at Game On! It's nice to know there is a place in Boston where you can watch sports and drink beer and then go and dance and party late night.
Ridiculous – Maybe this bar is good on a random night, but on New Years eve they kept everyone outside for 45 minutes before they let anyone in. The issue here is that A. there were only about 20 people in line and B. everyone in line had prepaid for reservations for the New Years party. No real explanation was given by the staff there. Unfortunate.
Best Sports Bar – I used to go here regulary during basketball season and it is a great place to watch a game, have a beer, and flirt with attractive staff. If your game is not on, ask someone to put it on and they will. The menu is so so, all apps are good EXCEPT the wings which are average, nachos with big papi salsa is average, but the cuban sandwich & steak tips are great, salads are good, burgers are good, pizza is average. Some people find it pricey, but I have to disagree, I have been here for 3 hours, had draft beer and apps between 3 people and stayed under $80 with tip. As good as it gets in Kenmore.
