"That type of crowd" – The Box Bar "does not serve Long Island Iced Teas because they do not want to cater to THAT type of crowd".......but feel free to order a double scotch or vodka on the rocks. Makes a lot of sense to me.
Don't write this place off! – I've read several of the reviews and alot of them have nothing good to say. I have been going to the Box for years, before remodeling and after. It may not be as quaint as it used to be, but before the remodeling you could never get a seat. The food is pretty good, especially for the price (try the reuben), and the beer menu is really the best I've ever seen. Service tends to be slow, just expect it, but they are pretty accomodating especially with kids. If you go expecting 4 star service you will be disappointed, it just is not that kind of place. This is a burger and beer bar and has never promoted itself as anything else.
Worst Service and Uncaring Manager/Owner – The Box was our favorite at one time. Last Saturday, our 45 minute wait turned into 1 hour and 50 minutes, even after checking with the hostess and manager several times! We got seated finally but after 20 more minutes, we never even got a glimpse from a waiter or waitress! We walked out. We asked for the manager and the hostess said "Whatever"! and went to get the manager who hid in the back room until we left. Disorganized, uncaring, obviously they don't need our or YOUR business!! Try E. G. Nicks about a block over! Great service, much better food than the Box, and a restaurant who cares. My group of 8 are all restaurant professionals for the last 15 years and we are an easy group, but the Box is not worth it!! This was the 2ND TIME this has happened here! No 3rd timers! Its BAD!!
Good food for unpretentious people. – I've been enjoying the Box Bar since one of my friends moved to Plymouth a few years ago. Though I don't care for the remodeling because the place lost some of that charm the previous decorating had, you can still sit in the old area.
Burgers are good, as are the multitudes of beers to choose from. Definitely not for high-brows, but good for real people and those who choose to associate with other real people.
Don't Bother – I loved it when you could go into the Box, grab the beer menu, order a Rauchenfels Stien-Weizen, go to the back of the beer menu and tell the very attentive waitress/waiter that youll have the large all meat wet burrito and keep the beer coming. Not any more. The food off of the new menu is awful and the service is very poor which is too bad because this was one of our most favorite places to go for years. Walk the extra block and go to Sean OCallaghans.
