Last date I was here: 09/16/2009

Restaurant: Cheers a.k.a. Bull and Finch Pub (

Location: Beacon Hill, Boston, MA

Total Rating: 3.35
Food: 3, Price: 3, Service: 4, Ambience: 5, Accessibility: 4

Summary: The “original” location for the inspiration of the hit television show Cheers, the Bull and Finch Pub is a popular tourist attraction and must see for visitors to Boston. Closest Metro is Park Street or Arlington Street.

Serving typical bar fare, the restaurant is split on two levels with the smaller bar on the bottom and the larger “replica” bar upstairs. Two gift shops separate the areas and are strategically placed to trap tourists. Two large moose heads adorn the walls upstairs but where’s Norm? My coworker, Jason, ordered the beer special in order to get the souvenir glass mugs and enjoyed his clam chowder. A large group came in as we were finishing up, so we were asked to move to the bar – which was ok but knocks points off their score. This bar would be a alright spot for tourists to take a break from their Freedom Trail walk and stop for lunch, but otherwise I would not come back.

What I ate:

Mac & Cheese

Elbow pasta with plenty of cheese, topped with bread crumbs.
Served with a side salad

Cheers on Urbanspoon
