Twin Lobsters at Whiskey's

StriperGuy Jun 2, 2008 07:52 AM

Hit is last night after a day of bouncing around beantown.

Haven't been at Whiskey's for years.

My DC had the lobsters, I actually had a cheddar bacon burger.

The lobsters were sweet and decent sized chix.

Fries were some of the best I've had in beantown, nice and crispy. The slaw, served with the burger and the lobsters was excellent with raisins in it.

I ordered the burger medium rare and it really came out Medium, but it was darned good with nice grill char and flavor on an excellent challah like bun with rather thick cut bacon.

The $22.95 twin chix are well worth it.

The decor leaves a bit to be desired ;-).

I'd certainly hit it again on a sunny sunday.

    I've never even heard of this place. Is it the Whiskey's on Boylston?

    (Also, dude, we don't call it Beantown. Unless we are from New York. smile.)

      Yah it is Whiskey's on Bolyston and a total meathead/youngster joint complete with scantily dressed waitresses. The place is almost laughable in this increasingly fru fru cowtown, beantown, second city, whatever ;-).

      Along similar lines, we went to McGreevey's for lunch yesterday on our way to the South End. The baseball memorabilia is staggering. He had the fried chicken sandwich which, unbeknownest to him, came topped with a rasher of Irish ham, bacon, and cheese...oy. Fries were passable. I had the mussels which came in an okay marinere sauce. 3 good-sized slices of grilled bread came wrapped in waxed paper, which I thought was a nice touch. Not destination dining, by any means, but a hell of a lot better than the former incarnation, the Foggy Goggle. Plus they had one of my favorite New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs by the glass for only $6 (Brancott).

        Around here we just refer to that entire strip as the drunk bars on Boylston.

          I've aways wondered about that lobster special. They also have nickle wings during happy hour which I've been tempted to try. Can't really stand the ambiance, but it's ok when it's empty.
