A Locally Green Establishment – West Street Grill & Tap is a member of the LocallyGreen network and they recycle all of their waste vegetable oil locally -- kudos for "going green" and being a part of this exciting movement!
Haven't Been Disappointed Yet! – The food is way above average, and a pleasant and friendly staff. I am amazed how they put out such an extensive menu out of such a small kitchen. I haven't been disappointed with any menu items I have tried yet. Steak, fresh seafood, chicken, burgers, wings, Cajun, Mexican, like I said lots of choices and all good !!
Friendly Staff, Good Crowd, Yummy Food – Ok, first of all this is NOT the West Street Bar in Boston - there is no dance floor. The steaks and tips are the best around!! The wings are good and spicy and the drinks are tall. The best thing about West Street are the people. It's your typical neighborhood bar/restaurant, where you can feel good walking in and know you'll be made to feel welcome. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. Definitely a down to earth , casual place to feel at home in.
Okay, but kinda blah... – This place is great for the neighborhood...or so you think...inside it is a dirty, dingy, dark place. On one side you have scruffy men drinking Bud and on the other side you have cramped tables full of locals who look at you weird when you walk in. Oh and the food...BLAH. No flavor. And soo boring! Again. everything just feel so dirty I don't really want to eat there. This place has potential, so hopefully they'll do something about it.
This little Irish pub attracts neighborhood characters with frequent pints and hearty bar fare. – The Scene
Oddly situated on the outer rim of a residential neighborhood, this longstanding area landmark is split in half. On one side sits a narrow neighborhood bar catering to occasionally raucous regulars; on the other, a small dining area popular with families and couples. A large paned window separates the two sections, keeping the smoke at bay while you eat. Wait staff is laid back, but mindful.
The staff claims its buffalo wings are the best in town: Sure enough, they're meaty, sweet and tender, and pack a punch. An extensive bar food menu offers a pleasing variety of thick, juicy burgers, slightly dry ribs, chicken and steak. Seafood fans opt for fried and baked scallops served with fries and coleslaw, as well as haddock, fried calamari and clams. A surprisingly limited beer menu goes to show that a pint of Guinness is the customers' drink of choice.
Great bar (but avoid the food) – Fun place to seen and be seen. Dance floor seems to be happening on Friday/Saturday about 75% of the time. Good ambience, hip, relatively laidback crowd (especially on weekdays). Well-stocked bar, drinks are well-made and strong.
In general, avoid the food. It's not very well prepared and tastes like it came out of the freezer.
