Back Bay Harry's Ratings and Reviews

Great place to watch the Pride parade. Employees dressed up for the occasion and decorated the restaurant. Fun specials on the menu for the day. Service was excellent and not hurried.
The food: I would say it that it was just OK. I'd like to go back and try a few different options.
Overall, liked it a lot. Just wish we'd been bowled over by the food.
Very good; maybe a bit over the top
Chose BBH's for 15% discount for Lyric Theatre ticketholders. Upscale bar setting. Friendly service. Eclectic menu. The core food was excellent, even if overly embellished. For example, the boneless fried chicken was out of this world, but the guacamole on top was a distraction. The pastry and filling in the spanakopita entrée was very good, but there was a sauce on top and another to the side, and something else going on underneath -- too busy. I highly recommend the battered cauliflower appetizer, more delicious without the dipping sauce. Even the butter that came with the warm fresh bread had more flavoring than necessary. (Mustard seed?) Overall, some great talent in the kitchen that perhaps is trying a bit too hard. You'll have a good meal at a decent price -- just consider having them put the sauces on the side.
I took my wife here for a date night. We were pleased with our evening. The hostess was friendly and very accommodating when I had to return because I left my credit card. Our server was attentive and friendly. She made sure we didn't need anything the entire time. I found the food to be good, nothing amazing. My wife ordered the nachos (definitely big enough for a meal) and I had the swordfish. We both enjoyed our food. They had a solid wine list and we were pleased with our bottle. I like the ambience and the large windows. The location is great too, in Back Bay, close to Copley.
Not great food
My wife and I both ordered the same items (clam chowder and the grilled chicken sandwich). The chowder was okay, though the pieces of clam were enormous and required cutting. The chicken sandwich was 5 slices of overcooked chicken piled high in the bun. Not only was it hard to eat, but incredibly dry. We asked for cheese and Avocado to provide some moisture, received no apology, and 5 minutes later the waitress returned with two slices of american cheese and a hunk of avocado. Then we were charged $3 extra.
My wife and I rarely have time to go out so this was a huge disappointment. Needless to say we will not return to BBH ever again.

Fabulous restaurant!! The salmon was cooked to perfection, the chicken had a delightful white bbq sauce that was surprising and delicious. The chef is to be commended on his skills as well as originality in his craft. We will be visiting again.
Comfort food with a twist
I did not know what to expect given the menu, but was pleasantly surprised by how delicious and creative were the renditions of comfort food. Both the fried chicken and pork chop were really well done, generous in size and served with very tasty accompaniments. Cocktails are also excellent, and despite the remarkable lists of ingredients, hang together well. I will be back.

Brunch was delicious. We arrived a few minutes early (before they opened) and the bartender wasn't overly nice or accommodating. It was freezing outside and we just happened to walk fast and arrive early. We simply asked to sit at the bar and have a drink while we wait. Didn't come to give us a drink until a few minutes after they officially opened...just a little surprised by that. He said he wasn't "set up," but we asked for mimosas and saw both champagne and OJ right on the bar...wouldn't have been difficult to quickly poor two glasses before the official opening time in our opinion. We then didn't receive menus for 15 minutes. Maybe we got an off day. Ambiance was lovely and food was good.
Excellent dinner before Blue Man Group
Excellent food and service. Family parked at Stuart St Garage and walked to BBH for dinner before Blue Man Group show. Dinner was awesome. Great flavors. Both kids and adults loved it. Anne our server took great care of us. Great night and would highly recommend.

I loved my experience here. The staff was so welcoming and gracious (especially as we had a toddler with us). They were attentive and helpful, and the cocktails were simoly wonderful. One of my favorite places in the city for cocktails. Thanks for a wonderful experience!
Consistently good food and comfortable, too.
There have only been a few times when the food at Back Bay Harry's was less than stellar. Saturday night (December 19, 2015) was just incredible. The food was fresh and interesting. We had a friend with us as a guest and he was very impressed. The filet mignon was fantastic. The
drinks were interesting and reasonably priced. We love this place.
Our "go to" bar/restaurant
Harry's is our "go to" bar/restaurant in the Back Bay. The food, draft beers and mixed drinks are excellent, and the friendly service is excellent too. We keep coming back and always leave happy with the experience and we appreciate the reasonable cost. The Manager (Andrew) does a great job and has hosted a really fun party for 130 people for us. It is a neighborhood gem.

We the calamari and the pastrami chips were terrific starters. I had the cider brined pork chop and it was very flavorful and cooked to perfection. Others at the table had the buttermilk fried chicken, filet mignonette au poivre and grilled Dalman, all were very pleased with their choices. Service was friendly and attentive. We had a wonderful evening at Back Bay Harry's!
