American Restaurant

“Lively and very friendly locally owned restaurant bar. Congenial staff will make you feel at home the first time you come in and remember you on your second. Innovative fare and excellent cocktails. An all around fun atmosphere just a 15-20 minute walk away. Highly recommend. Dinner served Monday-Thursday from 5pm-10pm, Friday and Saturday from 5pm-11pm, and Sunday from 4pm-10pm. Saturday and Sunday Brunch from 11am-3pm. Lunch served Friday only from 11am-3pm. If you want to experience true local Boston flavor, this is the place to be. ”

Bowling Alley
“Wicked fun spot to go to experience local favorite candlepin bowling. For those not familiar, the balls are smaller, the pins narrower, and you get 3 chances. They also have 10 pin bowling and an arcade. ”
