Met a friend unfamiliar with the Braintree area for lunch here after touring historic Braintree & beautiful Sunset Lake and decided on lunch at the nearby South Side Tavern for lunch.

Well, our waiter was awesome and the menu looked appealing. Too bad our lunches were barely warm, and not very good. The Rachel was sub-par and the sweet potato fries were cold and soggy. The chili and salad were just okay, too. We had given this tavern another chance coz the staff is so friendly and nice, but the food... More

Every Tuesday night is trivia night but the food the the real star. The clam chowder was probably the best I've ever had. Friendly bartenders and a fun atmosphere guarantee I'll be back.

Ate here twice because it was so good. The place is always busy any time of the day...they have a restaurant side and a bear side...and it was great for kids.

Living in Braintree I've driven by the South Side Tavern at least a hundred times but never stopped in. Since I'm moving out of the area soon, I figured it was time to try some of the local places that I've missed, and I'm glad that I did. Parking was a bit of a chore as it seems to share... More
