Rocky Run is a great family-friendly tavern on St. Paul Street, right in the heart of Charles Village. The have a full-service bar, two separate dining rooms, and outdoor seating, which allows for a large seating capacity. On weekends, however, be prepared to wait a bit for your burgers and beer. This place is popular with both the college crowd and the locals.
Food ranges from okay-good; standard pub fare but nothing special. The tables are covered with butcher paper, and the encourages everyone to get in touch with their "inner-doodler" while they wait for their food. Go ahead and try not to grab a crayon-- I dare you!
