What an great rooftop patio! This is really the only reason to go to Rattlesnake. Actually, I take that back, the margaritas are very very good. But you definitely need to go during the summer when the rooftop is open. During the week, it's your average bar turned nightclub.

I've been to Rattlesnake a few times now. They have outdoor space, which is pretty rare in Boston. They have Dogfish Head on tap (personal fave), and there nachos are fab. I wasn't overly impressed with their other options, but it'sstill a fun place to hang.

Went for a birthday party last night. Always had a good time with good service, ambiance etc. in the past but last night was terrible! Bonnie was our server and I'm not sure if she was having a really bad day but her manners were despicable to say the least! We were greeted by her agressive behavior which continued throughout the night. Needless to say we will positively never be going back there. Not sure if the establishment knows what kind of people they are employing but she was classless and should not be working with the public!

The rattlesnake is over priced, with very average food. Going in for a beer or two after work may not be a bad idea, but don't waste your time and money dinning.

Cons: price, quality, taste

Its a decent bar, with a nice roof deck but always crowded in summer. The crowd is a little stuffy and older, which is fine if you are coming from the Financial District after work. You can get better drinks elsewhere, including their Margaritas.

They're not kidding - the food really is an afterthought, for a restaurant-goer and the restaurant itself... the food was fair at best, not much in the "normal" department to opt for if you aren't feeling adventurous. The place is cool, kind of a basement feel to it. Great drinks, a lot of fun as long as you keep the food as an afterthought!

Take it from me, unless you are 35 or older, stay away. It's a cool place but it mostly fills with older working types with ties partially losened and sleeves rolled up.

Don't get too psyched about this place, it's seriously..just OK.
The food is decent, but the service is dreadful and, oh, by the way, has anyone seen the atmosphere?? If you're meeting someone you haven't seen in years, fine. Otherwise, there's a ton of better choices.

Waiting to go out on the roof deck, we got drinks at the inside bar at the doorman's suggestion. We were seated by the hostess at a table. The waitress gave us a rambling lecture that the table was her area and we shouldnt be bringing drinks from the bar. I explained that we were seated there by the hostess and we had came in with them. About 5 minutes later the original hostess came over and went on about the same thing. I mentioned that it was she herself who had seated us and why did she do it if it was a problem. The response I got was, "well, It doesnt matter to YOU where you get drinks, but this is HER table, she OWNS it". A simple "welcome, next time you need something, let me know and I'll serve you" would have sufficed.

The Rattlesnake is an all around great bar, whether its for a place to get drinks after work or to go to late in the evening. Rattlesnake attracts a great crowd, from yuppies to older professionals. The roofdeck helps add to the relaxed atmosphere and is a great place to hang out in the summer months.Great food too! and reasonably priced.

Before I went here, I thought it was a tough bar by the name....but surprisingly people were very nice...men & women. Half decent atmopshere. Good drinks. Very friendly crowed. Cool roof deck. Casual yet trendy and hip. No cover.

Pros: crowded

There is simply no excuse for the behavior of the Roof Deck staff at this place. None at all. If you want to get treated like sh*t by people who are obviously way too into their jobs as bouncers, go here. I know roof decks are premium party spots in Boston during the summer, but theres no need to be rude; and not just rude on the way in but consistently rude throughout the entire stay. Take your roof deck business elsewhere, like the Black Rhino. This place needs a serious attitude adjustment. It never ceases to amaze me how one or two staff people can ruin a place for everyone.

Pros: Bartenders, Location

Cons: Rude Staff, Crowded

Editorial from

Four parts boozy hangout to one part eatery, this Back Bay old-timer lures frat boys and sorority gals of all ages with a party vibe that wafts down from its rooftop deck (a/k/a "The Urban Canyon"). Food here has always been secondary to…
