Jerry Remy's Sports Bar & Grill Fenway
Absolutley great beer selection, attentive waitress and THE WORST FOOD I HAVE EVER HAD
French Fries Cold asked for one order well done all came out the same, when I asked the waitress in jest which one was well done she actually pointed to one of the three identical baskets.
Sent both cheeseburger and pulled pork sliders back because they were both cold and under cooked. I asked for replacements and the hamburg came back exactlty the same cold and undercooked and the pulled pork came back the same just drier. The presentation was good, but the food was worse than anyyhing I have ever had, it was like a bad trip to Ground Round.
The house special Jerry Remy burger COLD, Nacho's COLD. I eat out about three times a week and have never posted a bad review. It was awful.
I usually go to Game On which is OK. I now have a new appreciation for them. It is where my per-game will be from now on.

I was surprised to hear all this negative talk. I've been Jerry Remy's several times over the past couple of months and have been pleasently surprised. I mean it's all fried bar food so I'm not expecting too much but I like the atmosphere (although it gets wicked crazy busy before a game, but who doesn't in that area?) and I think it's a nice little change up from the usual Game On!/Cask scene.
I really liked the nachos and it might be crazy, but I find their salsa to be quite fantastic as far as non-Mexican restaurant salsa goes. I'm sorry that people had negative experiences, I hope these are isolated events because as far as Fenway sports bars are concerned, I've been high on Remy's.
Had brunch at Jerry Remy's this AM. They don't usually do brunch, but opened early for the World Cup, and we were driving by looking for brunch at 10:45 so went in. Wife had the brunch buffet, nothing special. From the regular menu I had the "Smokehouse Burger". For $12 got a big burger (8 oz?), with 2-3 slices of pretty good smoked briscuit, bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomatos (BIG and tasty), onion, and a peppy russian dressing. AND fries. And a very good fried pickle spear, best I've had north of Nashville.
I wouldn't try to go there on a game day, but was quite impressed, considering how low my expectations were.
I was there on Saturday for lunch with a large group (14 of us). The location is good, it has a nice view of Fenway, they have a great selection of beer and the bartender and our waitress were very friendly. Most of us ordered burgers and everyone said they were fine but nothing special and all cooked exactly the same way, there was a pasta dish that was just kind of "blah", and the veggie burger was ok, but nothing special. The fries were pretty good and seemed fresh. However, every single person at the table asked for their burger without the "BoSauce" (ie: Thousand Island dressing) and every burger came with it. The service was extremely slow even though at the time we were there it wasn't busy yet. They also had a hard time serving all the food and making sure the correct meals came out of the kitchen to our table - the last couple burgers were served several minutes after everyone else had their meals. They also forgot a couple drinks which people finally just gave up on. I'm not inclined to go back, especially with a large group.
I was there for the Bruins game on Marathon Monday/Patriots Day. We only ordered a couple of appetizers and I was also drunk at this point, so my palate wasn't exactly sharp. I do recall overly garlicky hummus (I love garlic, but this was mouth-burning); decent calimari and some run-of-the-mill nachos.
IWhat does stick out was how much I really hated the atmosphere....it reminded me of Vegas. Very slick, very pre-fab feeling, and the whole place smelled new, like new car-new.
The ginormous, 6 ft x 11 ft televisions were indeed impressive for watching a game, service was attentive and seating was plentiful, but this just isn't the kind of place I like to support.
Honestly, I felt the food/experience were not memorable enough to merit a report back here. Rather bridge-and-tunnel-y. You know what I mean? The scene was a total zoo, even 2 hours before the game and we both had barely edible bar food. B had the pulled pork sandwich - not much pork and what was there was just ok on a big poufy roll...this coming from a guy who will eat anything and be happy...I had the veggie burger which was just ok, too. Nothing to write home about but I ate it. Wine and beer lists were nice, though (I had a couple of gruner veltliner, which were refreshing and he had Dogfish Head).
