I don't get it. One previous review said that there was over 100 beers to choose from. I saw about 10 or so drafts, and about 30 or so bottles. Most importantly, the beer selection was rather small considering the name ""Brighton Beer Garden."" I also consider the beer selection small considering some of the local competition. ""The Sunset Grill Tap"" on Commonwealth has over 112 taps and a total of over 300 beer choices including meads. The food selection at the Beer Garden is far smaller than the sunset as well. \r
Our appetizers were overcooked. The fajitas came with a side of rice pilaf, which is not really a good side for a southwestern/mexican dish. However, the pilaf was just how my mom used to make it. Right out of the box. The chicken was stuck to the platter it was served on, and I wasn't given a plate to eat off of. \r
They have like 20 flat screens, but I couldn't hear any of them because the trendy music drowned it all out. Keep in mind this was on a night where the red sox were playing a playoff game. \r
A manhatten costs $10. You won't see prices that high at a tourist trap. \r
Ok. so its ""pub food."" Fine. But it should at least be good pub food if it costs $80 for three people to share an appetizer, and each have an entree with one drink. -I couldn't help but notice that every single waitress was blonde, and didn't appear to be any older than 20. How can they have good beer knowledge when they aren't old enough to drink legally?\r
At the start, the host tried sitting us at a table near an open window, with at least four other booths available. She didn't event think of asking if we'd prefer a booth instead of cramming us in the corner by the window. \r
So to sum it all up the beer selection is slightly bigger than your average sports bar, but smaller than any place that boasts ""Beer"" in the name. The food just stinks. The atmosphere made me feel dumb for showing up. They need to call it what it is; another ""Sports Depot."" If you like beer stand clear.
Pros: If you're a college meathead jock you might like it
Cons: If you're a beer fanatic you have been misled. Try the sunset grill.
