Fodor's Review

This is as close as Boston gets to a rural roadhouse: good eats and good music, where every seat is a good seat. The line-up leans into Cajun, country, rockabilly, blues, roots, with a bit of jazz, Latin, and poetry. Come early for Southern and Mediterranean bistro food, or on weekends enjoy the popular jazz brunch both days until 2:30 pm and open blues jam on Sunday afternoons. During Trivia Mondays, hot dogs are a buck-fifty. Those under 21 may visit with a parent or guardian.
