  1. There are a large number of places within walking distance of Fenway. It depends on what kind of food you like. Could you be more specific?
    Also, there are some sports themed places near Fenway but they are basically pubs with pub-like food. Is that what you are looking for?

      Pubs and the like are just fine.

    2. If you are doing the Red Sox thing, my recommendation is to experience the true craziness of it all and eat hot dogs and fried things and cracker jacks in the park. The first time I went I ate dinner beforehand (nothing special at all, but food) and then was really sad because I wanted the hot dog, some fried dough, yada yada. If it's a weekend maybe you could do a lunchy thing in the North End (Daily Catch?) and then keep yourselves hungry the rest of the day for the ball park food. There's a legals take-out inside the park as well, so there are options besides hot dogs.

      1. Uburger in Kenmore Sq. for burgers and great fries and onion rings. El Pelon on Peterborough St. on the other side of the park. Eastern Standard for a good bistro experience. And The Sausage Guy on Landsdowne St. Careful there are many sausage vendors on that street. The Sausage Guy is on the sidewalk opposite the green monster.

        1. I guess it depends on what you are looking for in terms food and drink as well as the atomosphere you are looking for...Boston Beer Works has decent food (wings, pizza, burgers etc), a number of good beers on tap, many tv's and usually many fans go there before the game. Also, fans under 21 are permitted to go in on gamedays provided they are eating. Eastern Standard is quite good too, but different atmosphere and food. Like the post above says though, getting food at the game and the sausage outside the park is a great experience too...

          1. Kenmore and the surrounding area on game day is a mad house. i definatly agree with the idea of going for something in the park. the sausage onions and peppers from the street vendors just outside the turnstiles are awesome. i love boston beer works, but you have to be in to elbow to elbow standing room, which i'm not, but we go there every game...the blueberry beer is quite cool.
