Lunch with a friend to celebrate the holiday. Service was awful from the time I was seated. Pizza was over cooked twice. First pizza was returned because it was burnt. Slow slow slow service.

Horrible experience. We were seated at the bar high top table area. There was an event there the same night, no one told us. So loud, couldn’t hear each other talk. Too many people in one are, all drunk and in costumes. Guy spilled beer on me near by. Will never go back again. Manager couldn’t even handle crowds and wouldn’t get people out of the way of door. Couldn’t get out when time to leave. In there for less then 45 mins and it was miserable.

Great service, table was ready. Was able to watch both Thursday Night Football and the Bruins game without any issue. Food was very good and there was plenty of it. Beer selection was fine for our group.

A Patriots game was in progress when we arrived so it was a bit noisy. We retreated to a quiet area of the restaurant, and we were able to carry on a conversation easily. The food was delicious. My burger was cooked perfectly and very flavorful. My companion loved her pulled pork sandwich and said she would be back with her husband. Our server was delightful and efficient and everything one hopes for in a server.

Nacho's were good. Sheppard's Pie had way to much cheese on the top of the potatoes. Got Mediterranean salad with shrimp. Shrimp had no seasoning and were over cook.

Not a lot of healthy choices. Not sure if I would go back. Food was just OK, nothing exciting.

It is a great place to meet friends. Service and staff are great. The food is good. The atmosphere is pleasant. It’s a bit on the loud side when busy, but perfect on a Monday night!

This is a solid place to get above average food that's not super expensive. I'll definitely be going back again. Staff was super friendly and down to earth and the food was served timely and prepared well.

Requested regular table in reservation and was sat at high top. Area was cold, had to leave coat on. Many tables left un bussed. We will try this place again but not a great first impression.
Food was good and good value.

Food was pretty good, not outstanding - a couple friends got the steak and eggs, one medium and one medium rare, and both were overcooked. It was slow, only a couple other tables besides us. Server was very nice, but seemed a little frazzled. It smelled strange as soon as we walked in, kind of like stale beer, but not sure.

i love the fish tacos. mildly spicey. the tater tots were PERFECT. and the one reason i keep coming back here is the in house ginger beer. they make this there as the spice for a Russian Mule. but, though its not on the menu, i always order just the ginger beer. its spicey, and is my favorite drinkt here. i wish they bottled it

We love B and M and go there frequently. Love that the menu has been updated and is a little more "hip". It has never been outstanding like the sister location in S Boston but has been adequate for a local suburbs spot. Beer selection is excellent. The food is quite good, not amazing but good. Again, hard to find amazing in the suburbs. WHY? I only wish they would offer some vegetarian options. I eat seafood but no meet and always have to choose the seafood since there is really nothing vegetarian. Last time I chose the butternut squash, bacon and blue cheese pizza. Yes, as a vegetarian, the bacon was a splurge. I still like it though I don't eat it much. This was a huge disappointment. The crust was thin and overcooked, very dry and crispy. It tasted like a pre-made frozen crust that was overbaked. The blue cheese was so over powering, I couldn't taste anything else. Comments were provided to the chef and I chose not to take home the leftovers. We were graciously offered a desert on the house which we declined but so appreciated. My husband's burger was good - just needed more seasoning on the meat. We will continue to frequent B and M and are excited for more improvements to the menu and PLEASE, come vegetarian entree options.

Food was too salty (2 different entrees). The nachos had nothing but cheese. We only asked that they leave off the peppers. We ordered mudslides $8 each but then added an up charge of $6 under the listing “espresso martini”. The waiter didn’t explain it and we had to ask why there was an extra drink. If wouldn’t have been a problem if we were told ahead of time

Friendly, welcoming atmosphere— we went there on a whim with our girls, 9 and 4 years old. Brandon, our server, was so nice and right on the ball. He helped us make decisions, was very accommodating for the kinds of food we were interested in, and never made us wait nor did he rush us. He set the pace for a very comfortable experience.

The food was outstanding— we were all happy with how delicious it was, even for the girls. Well that shouldn’t be a surprise, these days sometimes you get more flash than flavor. The mac & cheese was homemade, we had the shepherds pie (also homemade), and the most incredible scallop marsala we’ve ever tasted. The marsala sauce was very slight and complementary to the scallops, unlike many other places that drown their food in the sauce.

We can’t wait to go back.

We wanted to take our daughter to dinner for doing well on her tests. The waiter made the night! He was amazing!! Attentive, left us alone, but knew when he was needed. We were one of the only ones eating outside, so it would be easy to forget about us out there, but he didn’t. I think I saw out waiter more than the one for the other table that was out there!!!! The host was great as well. Definitely will be back!

Sat at a high top in the bar area and had a great experience. We are from the area and found out there was a new menu and chef - we were pleasantly surprised with the upgrades done to the menu and had a great meal. Beer list is also fantastic.

Pretty good bar. Has better than average food and their drink rule. The waitress we had didn’t know everything about the menu, but we had some really complicated dietary restrictions. Overall, nice place; but the floors are sticky everywhere.

Had short rib Mac and cheese that was incredible. My wife said the bathrooms were the cleanest she ever used. Steak was awesome. Had two meals, mussels appetizer and two desserts for $65. This place I has gone to the top of our restaurant favorite list: Will return for sure.

I had the Short rib Mac n Cheese, it was delicious. Fried pickles as an app we’re good too. Ultimately the best part was the service, it was quick, but not too quick and the staff was fun......it took us a minute to figure out that our waiter was also the person who sat us. He laughed as much as us when we put it together.
