Description: Carrie Nation Restaurant opened its doors to a warm Beacon Hill welcome in the spring of 2013. With its launch came a venue for Boston locals and visitors to sample Executive Chef Jamie Mohn’s tasty concoctions. The Dinner Menu boasts eclectic and delectable offerings such as Duxbury Mussels, Moroccan Lamb Tagine, or Lobster BLT. Chef Jamie’s take on Mac and Cheese (with truffles), Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes and Skirt Steak Frites have already proven to be local favorites on the Carrie Nation menu. Carrie Nation is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; serving lunch 7 days a week as well as offering a proper afternoon cocktail menu between lunch and dinner services. A chilled Raw Bar featuring a fresh assortment of seafood is available daily and the dessert menu features a lighthearted take on American staples. An immediate stand out is the tomato soup cake with cream cheese frosting. Served with candied bacon and fried basil, it is a complex rejuvenation of this classic Roaring ‘20s recipe.The main bar, heavily stocked with whiskeys, enticing cocktails, and a knowledgeable staff would surely be enough to have Carrie Nation herself pounding at the door, hatchet in hand. Its sleek design and ample seating allows for the signature cocktails (boasting the monikers of Cops & Robbers, Writers & Fighters, and so on) to keep the evening’s conversations interesting and the drinks flowing well into the night. Walking up to the second floor, you are met with one more room, The Speakeasy, Beacon Hill’s latest refuge delivering an intimate club feel for all. Pool tables, plush seating, and the lingering smell of bourbon provide a haven for a relaxing after-dinner drink.Aside from the nourishment and libations, Carrie Nation’s team strives to give Boston a new and exciting guest experience, one that encourages thoughtful conversation and borrows a little inspiration from an iconic era of our great history.

Went for food last weekend on a random visit and this place was great. The food was good as were the drink (good wine) but the highlight was undoubtedly the maitre d' Frank. He helped us get a table when we were wondering around a bit unsure where to sit, he made sure our drinks came promptly and food was ordered when we were ready. He regaled some great stories. Then made sure we got into the cocktail bar in the back and that we got to a good club that night! The d' must stand for d'legend. Really made out night!

The vibe of the restaurant/ bar is a speak easy and we really liked the decor. But a speak easy should have amazing cocktails- they had a few unique ones but not anything that sounded amazing. Had a standard mix that was very good. Food was also very good. I would return but kind of hoped for something more.

I wasn't drinking when I visited, but I was impressed by the extensive scotch menu. The decor is lovely and service is fine. Music was a bit loud.

Attended a function here in one of their private rooms. There were about 100 people & we had plenty of space. Bartenders & waitresses were all good. Drinks & food was good. The location is great - Beacon Hill.
