Fodor's Review

Harvard Gardens, a Beacon Hill legend, was the first bar in the city to get its liquor license after the repeal of Prohibition. It opened in 1930, and was owned by the same family until the 1990s. Once considered a dive bar, it's much more upscale today, with a menu of tasty grilled fare, like gourmet burgers and steak tips and a scrumptious brunch, including a spectacular Bloody Mary. Their classic Reuben provides a solid start to a day's exploring. The place is often packed with doctors and nurses enjoying post-shift drinks.
