Enjoyed the food, the service was a bit inattentive, but would consider going back again. Convenient location to the John Jeffries House

Some dishes are great (especially the HG burger, potstickers, cobb salad, wings), though others can be disappointing at times, and of variable execution. Relaxed spot by the hospital gets a lot of people after work.

A friend had mentioned this place for quick, cheap and cheerful good food near where we were staying. The menu is basic, but the food was very well prepared, tasty, and modestly priced. Atmosphere was bubbly thanks to the bar area without it being noisy and, as with all experiences, this was made better by the busy, attentive wait staff... More

I've been twice. Once with my 12-year old son and once with six other friends. Both times the service and food were very good. The first visit was in mid July and the menu seemed to have more offerings. The second time in late August had a more limited menu it seemed. My son had the mac and cheese and... More

While visiting Boston, a badly sprained ankle allowed me to visit Mass General. It had been a very long day and a cold beer was on my immediate TO DO list. I could see Harvard Garden as I exited The ER. Mission on... The atmosphere was very nice and the staff incredibly friendly . My Coord light was ice cold... More

I eat here whenever I'm in the area. It's a great place. I've never tried any of the entrees, but as far as burgers and sandwiches go, this place is tops. Much of its clientele comes from the nearby Mass. General Hospital, so it's almost always crowded during the 15 hours/day it's open. Nevertheless, I've always been able to walk... More

Staying in Beacon Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander through the hilly neighborhood and check out its exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
