Boston >Pour House
“I'm not promising gourmet but, it's a fun place to have a decent meal.”
“The dive-bar atmosphere is charming except for the really sketchy bathrooms.”
“The beef stew a la mode (topped with mashed potatoes) is one of the best lunches I have had since transferring to the Back Bay.”
“The menu, portions and beers are huge!”
“The pour house is a great place to hang out.”
“The staff isn't rude they are probably just sick of putting up with you.”
“Decent food, cheap beer and a chintzy interior.”
“The service is friendly and quick.”
A BIG TEN...IF YOUR TWENTY. The bar of my youth served me well during my tenure as both an undergraduate and grad student. However, upon returning one hot summer night, I realized that you kind of never outgrow the place. Perfect for a date where you really don't care what she says because you can't hear a dam thing. Burgers and finger foods are fantastic. 13 years and 40lbs later the "Pour Boy Platter" still goes down well after a Sox game, and you get change too. My kids couldn't sit at the bar. Look for "hot tie" waitresse's with names like "Mercedes" to DRIVE you to leave larger tips than they deserve or you can afford. Not for the over 40 crowd. A few more pounds and any more lost hair and I won't be able to go in there anymore...well I can always wear a cap. Still a great burger! 4 STARS
yummy and cheap. This place is wonderful place to go with friends for an inexpensive bit to eat.
DARK AND CHEAP. GOOD FOOD GOOD PRICES, TOO DARK, EAT THEN RUN DOWN TO A NICE SPOT NEARBY
Poor for a Reason. This place is cheap. I mean cheap. Like, no good. I got a burger and fries and she got a tuna melt. Our fries were limp and tasteless. My burger was no good either, but what is worse is that I had to spit out hard white "bones" four times. The service was really bad too and not even friendly, though we tried to be. (note that we did not complain either so there was no reason for it). She said hers was no better than at her Hospital Caf. Man that's shameful. The Atmosphere is just whatI expected, it used to be dive, but now its a little better. I have been to worse. Still I say don't waste your time.
The Best Deal in Boston. Pour house is the best bargain in Boston. It's a bar/restaurant with food that's perfect for any hour. They generally offer very little service. For example, you seat yourself, grab your own napkins from a paper towel dispenser, etc. Despite these "no-frill"characteristics, I find pour house a really cute place to dine it. The people are friendly, it's very inexpensive, and all those no-frills are actually quite quaint. It's a very cute place to try. I'm not promising gourmet but, it's a fun place to have a decent meal.
great hangover cure. the Pour House is a great spot for breakfast. order up some eggs and bacon and wash it down with one of their awesome bloody mary's. the lunch/dinner menu looks good also, though I haven't tried it yet. but this is a can't-miss spot for breakfast!!
Great neighborhood spot. The times I like best at the Pour House are Saturday or Sunday afternoons. The place is fairly quiet and you just take your own seat, grab a cheap eat, and relax with a good beer. Sure, this also can be a good bar for the evening rotation. I find this place to be one of the best bars to go to without the attitude.
