Back Bay Harry's Ratings and Reviews
Back Bay Harry's was great! It was somewhat (and happily) quiet for a Saturday night, although it was a holiday weekend and people may have been out of town. The food was great and the drinks were phenomenal - there was one with jalapeno, cilantro, tequila and sparkling rose which was really delicious. I was there on a double date and the noise level was perfect for conversation. Pricing was moderate - certainly not cheap but nothing out of control either, especially for a restaurant downtown. All in all a great experience.
This would be a fine place to go for a drink at the bar if you want to catch whatever game happens to be on. The food was just okay and the service was extremely slow, which may be why there were many empty seats in the place on a Saturday evening.
The waiter Anthony that was in training was awesome but the girl training him was cold, never smiled, she scolded Anthony in front of us because he asked her a question in front of us which in turn made us all feel bad for Anthony and embarrassed him and is. The trainer made us feel uncomfortable because she kept looking over at our table and whispering to another waitress.at the end when we finished eating she came and cleared our table and stated that she needed to clean table for the next party she did not let us enjoy and did not create a comfortable atmosphere. I put on receipt that If the tip was to go to Anthony we would have given him a great tip. We left her 5 dollars. She seemed very snobby and rude. She never showed any pleasantness and my burger was pink when I asked for well done
We went for brunch on Mother's Day. Food was great! Started with the donuts, definitely a must! I had the shrimp burrito which was very good my husband had the chicken hash and seemed to enjoy it as well. My daughter had the blueberry pancakes with pecans and mango which were a bit sweet but tasty nevertheless. I'll be back.
This was our first time here for Brunch with friends. My friends had Bloody Marys and I am not usually a fan but tried a sip of theirs and it was terrific. I had the poutine - which was over tots that were the tastiest I have ever had. We all agreed we need to come back because there were so many great options on the menu, we wanted to try everything! I was so impressed with Brunch that I can't wait to try coming here for dinner as well.
Food was very good, service was fair. Despite having a reservation, we were seated at a small high top in a high traffic area. The hostess questioned us why we were seated there (another wait staff had seated us) but never came back to move us to a more appropriate table.
Went to Back Bay Harry's with friends after I finished the Boston Marathon. It was the perfect location near the finish line and my hotel and offered ideal post-race food. We all split nachos to start and they were delicious and much more upscale and thoughtfully-prepared with great fresh ingredients than most nacho dishes I've ever had. Then I ordered a big burger which really hit the spot after a hard 26.2 miles. Plus BBH had a plethora of drinks and I had earned some vino! If and when I get to race the Boston Marathon again I think I will make sure to make another reservation here for after!
My husband & I came here for a delicious lunch after he ran the Boston Marathon! Our server was very sweet & attentive, getting him food asap! We enjoyed the spicy honey wings, back bay nachos, house-made falafel wrap & made to order maple doughnuts. Everything was really yummy!
Chose this spot based on word-of-mouth and found it "OK ". Nothing out of the ordinary (except for the homemade donuts). Service was also "OK ", some of the Front of House staff seemed to have a bit of difficulty with English (I.e. excuse me and just a minute).
Visited for Dine Out Boston. Hard to choose what to eat: everything on the menu sounded good. I had the crispy avocado taco appetizer (crispy, creamy avocado - yum!) and I asked the waitress to pick the entree for me: either the shrimp pasta or the fried chicken. She brought buttermilk fried chicken on a bed of mashed potatoes and spinach, accompanied by 2 donuts. Sounds bizarre but was delicious! and a large enough serving to be a hearty dinner the next day. Dessert was a key lime cheesecake. Much lighter than it sounds.
My dining companions also enjoyed their meals very much: shrimp appetizer and steak for one, tacos and salmon for the other. We all tasted each other's dishes and agreed they were excellent. And everyone had enough of their mains left over for a snack or a meal.
Service was quite good. The restaurant was not busy on a Monday night and we were not rushed out.
Took my parents here, and BBH did not disappoint. Though I knew the food would be good, especially during brunch, the service was really what made the experience for them. Our waitress was very attentive, chatty and accommodating- my mother asked if we could get extra filling with our made-to-order jelly donuts (get those!) and she said it would absolutely be possible. An interesting selection of brunch items and good service--- would go back again.
Feels very much like an unpopular Hotel bar where the staff are well aware you'll never be back - and in this case they nailed it. Boston has so many places much better than BBH. Food was good. We had oysters - fresh & delicious, calamari - exceptional lemon sauce and brie with cranberries - good/average. We sat at the bar for a good 5 minutes (only us and one other couple at the bar at the time and three barkeeps behind) without anyone even acknowledging us at 7:30 pm on a Saturday. The bar did fill up. Then there was the Brittany Spears Move playing at FULL Volume on a Saturday night which just isn't my idea of good bar experience. The two twenty-somethings out of the bar full seemed to be enjoying the movie. Cocktails were good and creative. Limited selection of craft beer. Perhaps just an off night.
I was really excited to try Back Bay Harry's for Valentine's Day. The pre-fixed menu looked appealing.
While my boyfriend's food was fine, mine didn't sit well with me. The lobster corn chowder didn't taste right and the pan seared salmon lacked flavor. The chocolate cake was also served a bit cold.
As soon as we left, I ended up getting sick from what I can only assume was the lobster chowder.
Overall, I had a poor dining experience for the money and wouldn't recommend the restaurant.
A group of friends and I ate here for brunch this past Sunday. AMAZING. Hands down incredible. First off, good luck picking an item off the menu.. you will want all of it. We all got something different and shared a little. The waitress was great. Super nice and friendly and split our checks without any issues (hard to find that in Boston.) They played old school 90's music which made the brunch even more enjoyable. They also offer a very affordable "boozy brunch" special if you want a mimosa. I highly recommend this place! Great service and food!
We went for brunch on a Sunday morning, the food was pretty good, lots of options for brunch including the sweeter things and healthier options like avocado toast with lox! We had guests from Florida and they enjoyed it.
