Boston >Tavern On The Water
“Someone needs to fire the management, kitchen and waitstaff, close the place down and reopen to make use of the superb views of the city and give the Navy Yard a waterside eating and drinking place it deserves.”
“Bar: Good drinks for the price and the view makes it all even better.”
“It has a superb location at the edge of the Navy Yard overlooking the water, and could build on its intentions to be an unpretentious, decent neighborhood bistro with A+ views but nothing can redeem the appalling management and service, the swill served i”
“agree that a better wine selection would be nice, but they have a tasty ship yard salad, a wonderful view, and casual but polite servers.”
“Very nice brunch place”
“Obviously there was no phone on the table so I approached the doorman and manager- the doorman was helpful, looking in possible places, but the manager, bar staff, and eventually the general manager were unbelievably rude, insulting and illogical.”
“Until then avoid this place and instead go to the Navy Yard Bistro or Copia- for the additional 10% in prices- its worth it to have decent food and service worth paying for.”
“Oh and yes, the restrooms were disgusting, the beer was warm, the silverware absent, the hamburgers looked like Costco rejects and the seafood had been sitting around for far too long on land to anylonger qualify as seafood.”
Low-key bar provides Charlestown residents with great views of the city and a relaxed spot for a bite..
Located on a pier in the Charlestown Navy Yard, Tavern on the Water affords views of the U.S.S. Constitution and Boston skyline. The bar's comfy interior is no match for the 200-seat outdoor patio. In the bar, regulars watch the game while downing bottles of domestic beer and sturdy pub fare (Maine crab cakes, fried clams, grilled tenderloin tips). An upscale menu (miso-glazed salmon, Ahi tuna tartare) is served in the upstairs dining room.
Best patio around. This is a no-frills joint that lives up to its name. Seated on the patio (roof-deck?) on a Sunday afternoon, we felt like we were dining aboard a ship (without the sea-sickness). I asked for the chef to substitute a vegetable for the ham on my eggs benedict. His choice was spot-on: arugala dressed with a touch of tangy vinigrette. My date and I both had dishes that came with perfectly dressed greens on the side - a nice alternative to the usual greasy brunch fare. Overall, quite a pleasant experience.
