This was my hangout when I was living in Boston a few years ago. This place has multiple specials a week on different nights, like half price burgers, mexican, etc. The Texas Burger is one of the best deals, but is almost gluttonous. 3

One of mayn Boylston bars to choose from, Pour House is on the casual end of them and nothing fancy. The food is actually not that bad, and there's a basement area that can be a little quieter.

The Pour House is not quite a dive bar but it's very casual. The food is actually really good and it's a great atmosphere if you're looking to watch the game or hang out informally with friends. They are very generous and tend to give quite a bit to anyone looking to host fundraisers. Their downstairs space is perfect for private events. I appreciate that they are so good to charities and good causes.

Our service was incredibly friendly and prompt. Being visitors, our waitress even gave us some ideas of places for us to check out while visiting Boston. My boyfriend enjoyed his food, and my chili was awesome (I highly recommend!).

Pros: Cheap, Casual, Fun

The Pour House could be considered a dive, but the you can't get a better burger in Boston, bar none! Plus, it is so cheap. You also can't beat their Sunday Brunch. The music is loud and obnoxious, but it's part of the great atmosphere. Great for drinks too.

I must say that the reviews of this place were apparently written by the owner, and the owner's ex-wife alternatively. The reality is somewhere in the middle. First, the beers are big and that's a good thing. The TVs are plentiful, but

For students low on the cash flow or anyone looking for good food for a small price, the Pour House's 1/2 price nights are what gets me- half off burgers on saturday nights, 1/2 off chicken sandwiches wednesday nights, it's my favorite!

I come here all the time for one of the cheapest lunches in Boston without compromising prices. Salads, burgers, sandwiches for only slightly more than you would pay at your local fast food joint.

The Pour House is a great restaurant, and deserves to become a Boston institution. It keeps its personality as a bar, but serves more than the usual bar food -- the honey-mustard chicken dinner with parsley potatoes was comfortingly yummy.

A noisy Boylston St. hangout that's open until 2am nightly, the Pour House is a favorite of the just-turned-21 student set and young area professionals. With plenty of TVs and a lengthy beer list, it's a good spot for…
