Tourists still flock to Bull & Finch Pub, a.k.a. Cheers Boston, the inspiration for the Cheers television series which ran for 11 years and won a number of awards. Avid fans should be forewarned, however; the exterior is very familiar, but the inside is nothing like the TV version. Drinks and food are served here, but its icon status is the main draw. It is considered by many to be one of the top tourist attractions in Boston . The pub is open everyday of the week from 11a onwards.
Of course since we were in Boston for the first time, we had to go see "Cheers". (The Bull and Finch) It was a great experience. The Red Sox were playing at Fenway that night fighting for the World Series title so the atmosphere was probably a little more charged and fun than normal. We all ordered a burger and had a mug of Pumpkinhead Ale. The food was good old fashioned pub fare, no complaints from us at all. The staff was great and I'd love to go again.
We came here for dinner before going out for drinks. Since I was ill from eating New England Clam chowder earlier in the day I needed something easy going down. The Irish Beef Stew was perfect. It was served hot and tasted great. It was crowded when we went and would go back the next time we're in Boston.
I ate at the Cheers at Faneuil Hall on May 16th around 6PM. It was a cool and rainy evening and there were plenty of open seats. I ordered the Honey BBQ Chicken Sandwich. While waiting, I ordered the Chips and Salsa (for the value, it was great!) When my sandwich arrived, I was extremely disappointed. The Chicken had about a quarter size drop of the Honey BBQ Sauce and about 10 small French fries. The plate was about $13 for a small amount of food. I was glad that I had the chips and salsa or I would have left hungry. The upside, if you eat there, you can get the nice Cheers beer mug for $5 instead of the $10 retail if you don't dine.
Service was quick. Staff was friendly.
If you want to say you ate at Cheers, be prepared to be slightly disappointed with the food.
