Was here for a birthday. The food was good, but the place needs a major rehab. I know we all like tradition, but sometimes tradition needs a lift.

We attend an annual function at the Club every year. The atmosphere and service is great, but what sets it apart is the quality of the food served to a group of 70-80 people. The food is what you would expect downstairs in the restaurant,...More

The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but
loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find
victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
