    Our server was awesome! He was energetic and super accommodating! Atmosphere is modern pub’y, high-top tables in outdoor covered area, staff seemed happy to be there as did guests. Food was appreciated by group, however , only feedback is everything came out scalding hot. The Mac and cheese dish is served in cast iron fry pan which never cooled down enough to touch. I should have requested that to be switched out since this was my 13yo’s dish and she kept touching it. Overall, will go back and recommend!

    First time going here and we’ll definitely go back. So nice to find a place so close to our home that was outstanding in food and service. Our server, Rose, was so nice and attentive to our entire family but especially to our son who has special needs. He really enjoyed the Cajun rigatoni. My Buffalo chicken Mac and cheese was delicious and my husband’s Cuban sandwich was amazing! Best truffle fries we’ve ever had. Perfect amount of truffle flavor, hot and crispy! Great beer too!

    Service was a little spotty. One entree was incorrect and the replacement was not delivered until everyone else had finished their meal. The server was very apologetic and they did comp that meal. So, I'm inclined to give them another chance as the overall experience was good.

    Was not happy with the floor manager's customer service. Harassing me and my group for a table. She said we've been there over an hour and she had another party coming in and needed the table we reserved. We was still buying drinks and food while she approached us about our table. There was already a table open for a party of 2. So I thought the party she needed the table for was for 4 or more people. Nope she took our table away to give the party of 2 our table along with the table that was already there. I will never host another group function there again. Unprofessional!!! Only reason I'm giving this a 2 star is because the waitress and food was great.

    Great place to meet a colleague for a working lunch! Our server was very helpful and suggested the "tots" as a side. Nice change from fries. Our food was delivered quickly and we managed to get some work done between bites of deliciousness. Can't wait to return after work for an espresso martini that I spotted on my way out the door.

    Went for brunch with the family. Leona (hope I spelled this right), our server was amazing and very attentive. Loved the atmosphere and aesthetics of the restaurant. Family friendly and is a great spot to go for drinks and food with friends, and can watch a game if there's one on. The windows open, so on a nice summer day it's the perfect setting. We got the deluxe burger, steak & eggs, and the El Jefe breakfast burrito. Food was great and the steak was even better. Highly recommend you (yes you the "I read reviews before going" type 😏😘) check it out, you won't be disappointed. Definitely ask for Leona if she's available, she'll take care of you. The staff in general were all amazing and friendly. We arrived a bit early for our reservation and they were able to accommodate our party of 4. All in all 10/10 experience, we'll be returning for the lunch menu next.

    Hostess was very nice and accommodating. We snagged the small “patio” table in the corner. Camila was great! She was informative about the menu, and gave great recommendations. The guac was amazing, and the chicken dip was good and spicy. Fried chicken was crispy & juicy (hot honey was bomb!). Burnt ends mac 🤤🤤🤤🤤 (could maybe be a little bit more cheesy/saucy is all). The drinks were top notch. Will be back.

    I am usually a big fan of Lucy's but not so much this time. We got there by 2:30 pm within 10 minutes of being seated there was a blackout (not that anyone came to check on us BEFORE the blackout). Obviously, the blackout was no one's fault however no one also bothered to come to say anything...I know you can not take orders with computers down but can I be offered a glass of water in 95 deg weather? We asked another server if they knew who our waitress was and they started with all the excuses about why they hadn't come to our table (when I only wanted to ask for a glass of water) The lights come back on by 2:58 pm and I asked if I could still order brunch since I lost time with the blackout, when my waitress checked she was told no which I thought was unfair since I did not get there too late it was because of the blackout that I couldn't order. My waitress tells us well no one should have seated us during a blackout I was seated well before the blackout she just never bothered to come to take our order. Again I usually have a great time/meal there but this time was not a good experience.

    Lucy’s is a nice fallback….. the food is very good, and the service is always spot on. Rose, our server was very friendly and attentive. The adult beverages are great, with a varied On Tap selection. The parking can be a challenge, as the restaurant is located just outside of Boston proper, and the inside noise level can make cross table conversations difficult when the restaurant is full.

    Biggest gripe, it’s so far…why can’t it be in my neighborhood? Stumbled upon it because we needed something before we drop our son off at college - what a find!!! Food, service, and atmosphere was excellent!! The management even helped with finding the perfect table for my father in law with his wheelchair!! Far, but worth the trip!!
