Gillette Stadium options

rockbound Jun 6, 2012 03:48 PM

I've never been to Gillette Stadium and was hoping my fellow 'Hounds could help me out with food options. I'll be taking my 13 yr. old and two of her friends to a Revs game. What are the fave food options in the stadium or should we look elsewhere before we enter the grounds? Thanks everyone.

    There's a 5 Guys burgers in Patriots Place adjacent to the stadium. Any food in the stadium isn't going to be very good.

      A few years ago I held my daughter's college graduation party at 28 Restaurant at Gillette. The food and ambiance were wonderful.

        Depends on what you expect. The best fine dining dinner option is Tastings Bistro, but it's not open for lunch and 5 Guys might be preferred by 13 yr olds. Another option is Skipjacks, good fresh seafood with a varied menu that will have choices for all ages. Davios if you want to break the bank for fairly ordinary italian.

          Actually your best bet would be to join the Supporter's group known as the Midnight Riders, in the parking lot next to the entrance from Rt 1. They always have decent food and drink to share, and some of the Revs management actually come out to the area pre-game and talk to the fans. Tailgate starts 3 hours before game time.

        a few miles away, on route 1 is the red wing diner. old school new england joint that is older than dirt. personally i find it fun, others would quibble. i send people there who are not from the area, they tend to find the regional accents a "hoot".

          Just went to the Red Wing last weekend. It's been kind of up and down over the years but everything was great -- especially the fried clams -- and the portions are huge. Waitress was a little surly, but to me that's just part of the charm.

          Teens seem more than happy with the pizzas and burgers a lil bit off Rt 1 at the Eagle Brook Saloon in Norfolk.


          It has the advantage of some interesting beers for those over 21 as well.

            Looks like Mercury/Ipswich is still supplying their "house" brews....

            Go right to gillette and eat there. 5 guys is good and will keep your kids full for the duration of the game. There is also a red robin near the hotel.

              Thanks everyone. Looks like 5 Guys it is.
