Where Everybody Knows Your Name – Everytime Ive gone into the Coolidge Corner Clubhouse, Ive been greeted with enthusiasm. From the friendly and accomodating barstaff, energetic servers, and often humorous chefs that can frequently be found engaged by the bar. This bar is extremely welcoming, and one gets the sense that the people who work here generally enjoy their jobs. Its a real treat. If you are looking for a riotous good time on any night of the week, I highly suggest this place. You will find well prepared comfort food at reasonable prices, and hands down the best lobster roll in town! (which I think is only served during baseball season). The 21 flat screen tvs allow you to watch your favorite games with constant dialogue. Come for sports, or just to relax, you will not be disappointed.
Love it but rude hostess – I really enjoy the CCC. It's a great place to go for a beer after work and watch the game. I've never had food there I didn't like and they have some of the friendliest wait staff around. We do, however, seem to get consistently rude service from the hostess. Otherwise, I think it's great!
Rude bartenders and an obnoxious trivia announcer... – The Coolidge Corner Clubhouse is a waste of your time and money - the bartenders are very rude to you. For example, I went there tonight and ordered a beer while waiting for my table. The beer was flat and I asked for a different beer. When the bartender served me the new beer, his words to me were "Will this probably do it for you?". At dinner the trivia announcer was so loud and obnoxious that we didn't enjoy our meals and could not even attempt a conversation. Go somewhere else - this place is worth avoiding.
Terrible, terrible service – I have been to the Coolidge Corner Clubhouse a few times and the service is consistently poor. The food is okay, but nothing to write home about. The CCC is one of the only bars in Coolidge Corner, but you'd be better off anywhere else. Each time I have been there, I have been treated progressively worse. The waitstaff is amateurish and inexperienced. Recently, when we complained to the manager about the wait time and the fact that many people were being seated before us despite arriving after us, the manager was incredibly rude and unaccomodating. Do not go here. It's a waste of your time and money.
Great bar food, great bar service! – This is the place to go for late night eats and drinks and catching the late game. The food, everyting from big salads to giant beer battered cajun chicken sandwiches, is awesome. They have a huge selection of drafts and booze. The staff has always been great at the bar and I have sat at a table a couple of times with no complaints. Flat-screens everywhere!
Anybody writing a bad review had an isolated bad experience, disregard them and try it out. I've been going there for 5 or years and can't remember ever being dissapointed, take out or at the bar. It is small and crowded sometimes but it's a cool crowd.
DO NOT GO HERE – This place is only concerned with making money and could care less about the customers not to mention the quality of their food. If you go there only for drinks and not food at 11pm and they have only one of their ten tables with people sitting down, they still will not let you sit down but rather make you stand in their crowded hallway of a bar. Perhaps they get a rush of 40 people for dinner at midnight. A friend of mine who used to eat there all the time, was once their with 5 friends who were all eating and drinking but he was not feeling well and only had water and the manager went up to him and said "listen, I know your a regular but we are trying to run a business here." He actually said that to a guy who ate their every single week but did not feel well enough to eat there on that particular night. They can only afford to treat people this way because they have no other competition in the area. STAY AWAY FROM HERE!
Really Good Food, Too Small – I know at Coolidge Corner there are a lot of things to see, but sports bars are not one of them. We started going to the three C's by default to watch games without having to take the T or drive. First, the positive: the food is great and I have always had pretty decent service. The negative: it is just too small and you have to time it perfectly to get a table..also there is no real place to standwhile you are waiting. I would reccomend it for the food and the tv's, but always go with the expectations of having a beer (or two) at the bar first. It is great for Saturday mornings too.
A Shame – This bar has so much potential. The food is decent and the tvs are pretty good, but everytime I go the wait staff finds some way to be insulting or unaccomadating. They have become so concerned with maximizing profits that they have begun to allianate their customers. For example the last time i will ever go there resulted in my arriving at 9pm for drinks with a friend. The bar which is very small was packed with people and the restraunt section had one one of the 8 or so tables occupied and yet the wait staff refused to allow us to sit with our drinks. So for the hour we stayed finishing our drinks we watched all 8 opened tables continue to be available while we had to stand in the corner with our drinks in our hand.
Brookline's top sports bar features colorful murals, blaring televisions and affordable eats. – In Short
Colorful sports photos, cartoons and posters provide the ambience of a jock dorm room. Tiny tables fill the cramped room, making for a tight game-watching experience. Fortunately, there are about 20 strategically-places screens that show any and every game. Most menu items are named after famous figures. The "Roger Clemens" is a grilled chicken sandwich with broccoli, honey mustard and melted cheese, while the "Wade Boggs" salad is topped with a grilled teriyaki chicken breast.
