Reviews for The Red Hat

Needed to get out and cheer up.Called beforehand to make sure it was open. Walked in, washed my hands, sat down and immediately ordered a beer. K was the bartender/waitress. I had such a good time and she cheered me up along with the beer.I haven't been to The Red Hat in years and this place is a true Boston hangout.Thanks for a great time! See you again soon!

Stopped in on a Thursday evening with no games in town to this historic spot. If you want to see some old Boston flavor this is the spot. It's not modern in any way, but it's got a ton of character and a great Boston vibe. Staff was attentive and friendly. There are 2 floors, upstairs was closed. Lots of tv's to catch a game, music was (not live) really upbeat and fun. Chicken Ceasar salad was diced up into to small a pieces, but still fresh and tasty. The nachos were full review

Red Hat is your typical, dive-y, sporty Boston bar. We came here post-brewery for a bite and a drink. I ordered mozzarella wedges (that's right, wedges not sticks). If you're wondering the difference, like I was, wedges are triangle shaped and have even more cheeseee. They were delicious. My friends ordered other crowd-pleasers like waffles friends and a club sandwich. It all looked pretty good. And with most food under $10, there's really not much to complain about.
