There’s something about The Pour House that is homey. There are not a lot of words to describe the unique homey feeling because Pour House has sticky floors, cramped bathroom stalls, and dim lighting. Its homey feel probably comes from the cluttered brick walls with neon signs of beer brands, flags from colleges across the country, and all the random things you would find in your garage.
The Pour House is located at 907 Boylston Street in bustling Back Bay. Pour House is a hybrid of a diner and bar that serves breakfast, brunch, appetizers, burgers, Mexican, and pretty much anything else you can think of.
They have breakfast items such as Pour Man’s Hash which features mashed potatoes, bacon, cheese, and eggs for $6.45. The deals continue on their brunch and dinner offerings with options such as the Meatloaf Stacker entree that features meatloaf, mashed potatoes, Texas toast, gravy, and onion rings for $6.95.
The restaurant is dark, giving off an ominous vibe but is quite the opposite. Pour House is inviting, friendly and warm. There are two sitting rooms and two bars, one located downstairs and is a little bit bigger than the main room. The restaurant is usually decorated for whatever season or holiday it is.
Pour House is the type of place you go to if you want no frills, inexpensive, great food with large portions. Somewhere you can hang out for a few hours and not have the waitress annoy you to leave. Pour House is the type of place you take your best friend when they visit Boston for the first time.
There are four different special days: Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday nights, with brunch served every Saturday and Sunday morning until 3:00 p.m. The menu is a lengthy 14 pages long with endless choices. When you think you have found what you want to eat, you find something different to order.
Pour House has never disappointed however, after 8:00 p.m. they ID and do not allow patrons under 21 in.
Pour House is perfect for any college student or any person that wants good food. You get a lot for a little bit. Your eyes will brighten up when the nachos are placed on your table because they are stacked high with everything on it. There are 11 different burgers (can be substituted for veggie burgers) to choose from with different condiments and extras.
Pour House has something every other restaurant is lacking. The restaurant has character and life right in the heart of Boston. It is located at 907 Boylston Street, Boston, and is open daily until 1:30 a.m. Price range: $
