Most welcoming environment with live music and staff who make you feel like family. Easy Pour is my go to place for entertaining guests, celebrating with friends or just a drink after work. The menu is delicious with a cheese fondue from heaven. Love. Love....Love.More

This was my second time at the Easy Pour. We were there with my family for a Christmas gift to our parents. They were understaffed which is what you are hearing everywhere which is unfortunate. Service service was not great. If you don't have the...staff you need to accept reservations based on what you can handle. Food arrived sporadically. Salads arrived with the mains instead of before. We had to remind the waiter about some things that were forgotten. The mains arrived and we did not have any silverware. No selections for dessert. My very disappointing pork chop was plated in a bowl making it very difficult to cut to eat. Ceasar salad was missing the green parts of the romaine. I had never seen such a white ceasar salad. Easy Pour has lost my business for sure!More

How very disappointing. From the moment I called to make a reservation, and was told "You have to be done by 8:30 p.m." before I inquired any further about details. The owner, who answered the phone, was abrupt and rude. I should have cancelled then....It was my first time to this establishment, and I drove 35 min to get there as I had heard good things. But from the start, I wondered if the owner even wanted tables of two single women (65+) taking up space. We were not welcomed with even a hello, but rather reminded again that "you have to be out by 8:30 p.m." Why? Because more important paying customers were expected? The food was mediocre at best. The waiter did not elaborate on the menu and slapped down the food. Denny's has superior service. At 7:45, our bill was presented, without us even asking. We hadn't finished our $65 bottle of wine. The entire experience felt borderline misogynistic.More

We dine at Easy Pour for the Pork Chop! Who would have thought a pork chop would be such a menu draw? But it was fantastic! It was so tender you could cut it with a fork! Tasty, flavourful and juicy; just wonderful. A second...choice is the Short Rib. Both are a little expensive, but worth it. We dined there last night (November 11, 2021) and they just changed the menu. And they changed the Pork Chop! It is no longer slow smoked. It is no longer tender. It is now ... just average and not worth the price. We were SO, SO disappointed. We informed the server who informed the kitchen. So it goes. They just lost four customers. We will return if they change back to the original Chop, but that seems unlikely. Fat Olive's in Dorchester has a very good pork chop, but not as great as the past Chop at Easy Pour.More

Back post Covid, and another solid dinner. Patio has great ambiance for evening dining. Beet salad continued as a favourite, the caprese salad was fresh and substantial. A repeat of short ribs, and a repeat of a flavourful tender beef. Recommend mashed potatoes over the...roasted fingerlings. Great beer and wine selection. Service is a bit tricky, working out some of the kinks. Staff is pleasant and apologetic for delays. Go with the plan for a leisurely evening and enjoy.More

I would have rated this a 5 except for the cool reception from the waiter / owner. In fact we were having second thoughts of staying after nearly 10 minutes of being there and not be approached for an introduction, a drink order or just...giving us menus. On a side note, I have to say that the restaurant smelled of fantastic / promising food. FinallyFinally, he showed up and asked us for out order as if he expected us to have memorized the menu. In fact, this was our first time and nearly our last time there. He finally gave us menus and the wine list and helped us pick out a bottle of wine before we ordered food. Even though it was just after 6:00 PM, they were out of their least expensive meal, gnocchi but, truly the one that sounds the best. Since we were drinking white wine, we both chose the Trufle Mushroom Flatbread and the Pan Seared Salmon with potatoes and root vege. The other choice for white would have been the chicken but, $33.00 for a chicken leg sounded exorbitant. In retrospect probably very delicious. The Flatbread was a bit over done but, an excellent flavor combination with the balsamic glaze. The salmon plates were done to perfection and the sides hot and delicious. Also went very well with our Pinot Gris. We enjoyed every bite. During our meal, Juneyt started playing his guitar and it was a wonderful accompaniment to the meal. He had everyone in the restaurant singing along to the music and having a great time. I added a cappuccino, a creme brulee and a Madeira wine for desert. The brulee was in a word, pedantic but, the cappuccino and wine were excellent. BTW, somewhere along the way, the waiter / owner became much more pleasant and attentive. He gave us time to sit and enjoy the music and brought out the desert after a good break. All in all, it was a great birthday meal with my beautiful wife and we shall return to try other dishes and listen to the music. We'll probably pre order the gnocchi to make sure that we have at least one order of it. I'm hoping of giving it a 5 out 5 next time.More

We enjoyed a lovely dinner after cycling a nearby path in Cambridge. They have installed a new patio at the back of the property to accommodate outdoor dining & live music. This is a nice addition to the indoor dining space. I see a lot...of people complaining about waiting for service, have a little empathy for our regions small businesses! The entire industry is struggling to find staff since covid, restaurants laid off staff and were out of work themselves for a while, so we should all understand that it could take longer to prepare and serve your meal. Easy Pour was never meant to be a fast food joint ~ but rather a lovely wine bar with a made to order menu. Pack your patience & make a reservation! Our drink order was taken quickly and then we sipped wine while we caught up with our friends until our food arrived. Our table enjoyed roasted beet salad, tataki tuna dish, charcuterie and cheese fondue skillet. EVERYTHING was super yummy! They have a great wine list with local and old world wines.More

We made a 7:00 reservation to meet friends on the patio as we had heard great things. Upon arriving we were charmed. There was live music. The setting was beautiful and relaxing. It soon became apparent, however, that the waitstaff was struggling. The 15-or-so minute...wait to get our drink orders taken wasn't a big deal, but upon delivering our drinks the waitress spilled wine on our friend. He was understanding and we were grateful when she brought him a fresh glass. It wasn't a great start, but the real problems began as we waited and waited and waited for our starter to arrive. In fact, we waited almost two hours, And after we'd followed up with several staff members, our server eventually just brought out our mains--I guess, hoping we wouldn't notice the charcuterie we'd ordered had never arrived. When I reminded her that we'd ordered it, she shrugged, told us the kitchen had messed up and asked, "Did you want me to do something about it?" Well... yes, actually! But it shouldn't be up to the customers to suggest how the restaurant can make it right. As it was, we were eventually offered a dessert to split four ways on the house to compensate for our two-hour wait. But it was really too little too late. The manager then explained that they'd been overbooked and were struggling to serve a large party. And while I understand that these things happen, there are simple things that could have been done to make our long wait more pleasant. We could have been offered refills on our wine at some point, for example (as it was, nobody came and we nursed the same glasses from 7:00 until 9:00). A bread basket might have been brought out to tide us over. Or, at the very least, a realistic wait time and the explanation about being overbooked and understaffed could have been offered before we'd become so hungry and cranky we didn't really want to hear it anymore. The Easy Pour Wine Bar is a nice place, and the food--when it arrived--was great. Sadly, given our poor experience and the fact that too little was done to resolve it, I don't imagine we'll be back.More

I decided to take my wife to Blair last Friday for lunch. I had just purchased a toy, a 1999 Mazda Miata convertible and it was a gorgeous day for such a ride. Got their before opening time (misjudged the driving time) and the owner...accommodated us in a very polite manner. He and the chef bent over backwards to make sure that my wife's food allergies were not a problem. My wife had the mussels and I the Lamb Lollypops, both fantastic and ample in portion size. The wine selection is excellent; we had a great California Chardonnay. The owner, host waited on us and despite as we awaited our meal the patio filled completely he served us efficiently and with aplombMore
