I love this place, except for the one blotchy plague - the people that cruise Smith Street. Some of the most prissy, entitled, wispy clowns you could ever meet wander in here. The best of times are when the bar is empty, or when the staff treats these douches like the pinatas they are asking to be (whereupon they go home and caterwaul about how mistreated they are). A good bar on a ludicrous street frequented by twits.

Pros: Often empty

Cons: Twits wandering from Smith Street

This place is a great local dive. Frankly, Boat is a breath of fresh hoppy air on this strip oversaturated with bistros, sterile bars serving $11 drinks and tacky theme bars. Great beer selection, decently priced cocktails, entertaining bartenders - what more do you need?

Pros: true dive, good beer, fun staff

Cons: ho-hum wine selection

.

The place is dirty. So are the people who out hang out there. It has to be the biggest dive in that area. Its so bad that even the hipsters are grossed out.

Cons: staff

I was in this bar over the weekend and I was quite appalled by the service. I sat at the bar for about 5 minutes and there was no bartender in sight. Eventually a woman saunters in and gets behind the bar and takes my order. She was incredibly rude and actually yells at you when you don't order to her liking. She was so busy yelling at one of my friends she forgot my other friends drink order. Having been a bartender myself, I had never such poor service. The bar was quite crowded and lined with people waiting for the bartender to come back from her cigarrette break. Think I will be taking my business elsewhere from now on.

Pros: Nice atmosphere, good jukebox, fireplace

Cons: Worst bartenders on the face of the earth

Usually, when I go to a bar I expect the bartenders/servers to be somewhat friendly. I wouldn't even mind a little attitude, but when the bartender/server actually says "Finish your drinks and get the f**k out of here" when notifying us that the bar was to close soon is just not okay. The bar itself was cozy, had good music and a good beer selection. Wednesday night bartender needs to lose her attitude. Perhaps her friends find it funny but actual paying clients do not! Will not be returning there again.

Cons: BAD ATTITUDE!!!!!

One of my favorite neighborhood bars, also one of the first of the new wave. The only problem is the bartender who works Thurs nights and also I think Tues - the nerdy, frumpish one. she is HORRIBLE. a real B*#*#*CH. never had a buyback from her, despite being a regular. and STILL ignored. really unprofessional. really low-class and low-caliber.

Went on NYE with a group of friends - the jukebox was FANTASTIC! Surroundings seemed comfy and cool!

Pros: Great tunes!

Went last Saturday night and had a really great time picking old tunes on the juke box. I love juke boxes that pretty much resemble the cd's I already have and the CDs I want - The Smiths, The Clash, Portoishead, etc.

The bartenders were really sweet too - they clearly like their job since they made the effort to make drinks more special and to talk to everyone there. I wasn't able to drink much that night due to illness, but the bartender was just as attentive to me as he would have been for other customers (Gave me a round of water with every drink my friends had). The one drink I did have was really yummy though - and super cheap! (I had a White Russian)
