This is a great place to go in nice weather. The resturant/bar is very open and there is a roof deck patio that is nice. The food and service are both excellent. I have always been happy to go to Cityside.

I love this place in the summertime, when you can get a breeze and really relax. The food is good and the environment is casual

I have heard a lot of good things about Cityside ?? great beers, great bar food, great place to watch a game. After finally visiting I can tell you they have good beers, mediocre food, and it really isn??t that great a place to watch the game.

Cityside is deceptively small, with booths and seats packed into nooks and crannies, and poles jutting through different sections of the restaurant. The downstairs bar is super small, and sight lines and space are in short supply. The management has obviously tried to make up for this by wallpapering the dining rooms with TVs, but I did not find it to be a particularly comfortable place to eat ?? blasted with light from TV??s and still straining your neck to watch the game you??re actually interested in.

Beer selection was better ?? Cityside carries Sam Red, which is a very underrated beer. A few of my other favorites were there too. This is not a Sunset-caliber collection of beers, but its very good.

Food was another story ?? the food is not that good. I ordered buffalo tenders and the California burger. The tenders were juicy bordering on soggy ?? not the best I??ve ever had but good?but the burger was a disaster. Served with old, small, generally low quality slices of avodaco with bacon and cheddar ?? the burger was dry as a bone and avocado tasteless. I couldn??t believe how lousy that burger was. The turkey burger my gf ordered was dry also. Again, disappointing.

Insult to injury was the bill ?? 1 order of buffalo wings, 2 burgers, 2 beers = $41!!!!!! Not including tip! Really?! For food of this quality we should have just gone to Sunset and it would have been $5-$10 cheaper.

For the record there weren't many BC students there when I visited, but I'd hate to be there when you have no room to move. Definitely won't be back.

Pros: Beer selection, TV's everywhere, decent wings

Cons: crowded, expensive, so-so food, uncomfortable

The food is spetacular and If you go to cityside don't miss their stuffed burgers, they are succulent and flavorful!
And their drinks are very strong and tasty.
Not to mention dozens of flat screens hanging all over the place, if you like sports you will love cityside.
The only problem is the place gets really full.

The recently renovated Cityside Bar is great! The windows open to make it feel great on a summer day. The new televisions downstairs are great to watch a couple of games at once and the upstairs is great to have second bar. I would definitely recommend Cityside!

Much nicer now after the renovations, especially on a nice day when you can sit by the open windows and enjoy the weather. The food is still just so-so, but it's a great place to sit and have a beer. Upstairs area is nicer now, too, with an additional bar.

Nice place to meet up with friends and catch up over a beer. Went early on a Saturday night and it wasn't very crowded even though it's fairly close to BC. Nothing super fancy but I'd recommend it for those that don't want to head into Boston.

Great food and good value, definitely a spot worth visiting time and time again. The martinis were surprisingly good (and strong). The place does get very busy once all the BC students are around so don't be expecting a quiet night out.
