A bar that is *just* a bar in the middle of Boston 11/25/2008

This place is a glorious dive, an endangered species in and around the common. The drinks are cheap, the pours are heavy and the decor is tacky as it comes. Be aware though, the place is cash only so be prepared for that. It is the only place like it in that area, the mix of people is as broad as you can imagine and as far as value, the Tam is king. Pros: cheap drinks, surly funny staff, cheap drinks, easy atmosphere Cons: No food, cash only, very gross bathrooms more

Best Dive Bar 8/5/2008

This bar was great, I'm so angry we didn't find it on the first night, because we would've stayed there until it closed. It was a great, great place to just hang out and be left alone, or talk to the people in there and shoot the breeze. Beers were much cheaper than anywhere else, like Cheers, or MJ O'Conners, at 3.50 a beer. We were only in town for a couple of days, but this place is definitely a top bar for me. Pros: Cheap prices Cons: None that can I think of. more

Fun Place to Go 6/22/2008

My friends and I stumbled in from Texas and knew from the moment we walked in the door that this was a cool place. Patrick and Lynn the Bartenders were awesome and made us feel at home just like everyone else there. We were surrounded by a wonderful mix of folks and had a great time. The draft beer was cheep and cold and the conversation was lively. It felt like home. My husband is going to Boston on business and I told him he had to got there. Cheers from Texas to all at THE TAM! Pros: Great Bartenders more

Best Dive Bar in Boston. 11/26/2007

Love the Tam. When you want cheap beer, good conversation, and the company of the best bar manager in Boston (Patrick), this is your spot. When the front door opens, everyone in the bar leans back to look...and you never know who might walk in, from a group of hot college girls, to a local crackhead - it is alwasy interesting, and always a good time. Not sure what the other reviewer is talking about....Yankees hats are NOT do yourself a favor and leave it at home. Pros: Cheap Beer and lots of RANDOM people to shoot the breeze with - this is the REAL Cheers. Cons: Leave your pretentions and your Yankees hats at home. more

A great hangout anytime!!! 7/26/2007

The Tam was like a second home to me when I was a nanny in the Boston area from 1999-2001. I met every kind of individual you can imagine, from college hunks to drage queens to foreign tourists. When I got married in 2004 we drove to Niagra Falls, and then traveled down to Boston so that I could show my husband around the city that I had loved so much. He also loved the Tam. more

Best jukebox ever. 7/14/2005

I live in this bar. No lie. We need more Yankees fans however, but the $1.25 Busch drafts are always delicious and cold, the bartenders love our sass and on any given night you can be surrounded by a few old drunks or a big group of sorority girls. The Tam is a way of life. Cons: No pitchers! more
