My boyfriend and I visited The Charlie Horse after hearing great reviews from family and friends. Charlie Horse resembles a Dave and Buster's; there is a restaurant, bar, game room, and bowling alley. There is also a nightclub and special events held throughout the month. The Charlie Horse is a great place to grab a few drinks and watch the game; the bar area is pretty nice and they offer plenty of drink specials and various other promotions throughout the week.
I was honestly surprised with the quality of the food; I expected it to be pretty bad. However, the grilled cheese and tomato soup and fried pickles were both delicous! Charlie Horse offers Happy Hours Monday-Friday from 4:00-6:00pm and also from 9:00-11:00pm on Monday-Wednesday.
My boyfriend ordered from the Eat and Play summer menu, which included an entree and free $10 game card to be used in the arcade. He said the Turkey Burger was great. We were planning to play games regardless, so we basically paid only $6 for the burger.
There are plenty of pub style appetizers to choose from, along with salads, burgers, pasta dishes, sandwiches, seafood, and more. Check out the full Charlie Horse Menu
Our waitress was cheerful and quick. We were seated right away and greeted by our waitress within a few minutes, which was nice.
The Charlie Horse has a great sports bar atmosphere: a lively bar, tons of Boston sports Memorabilia, and plenty of fun drinks. The game room is small, but still offers plenty in terms of entertainment. We had a great time playing basketball, Skee-Ball, Deal or No Deal and much more! Not as big as Dave and Buster's game room, but still a fantastic time!
Check the website for special monthly events. The Charlie Horse frequently brings in guest DPs for the nightclub, runs special parties and events, and offers discounted/free bowling nights.
The Charlie Horse is the fantastic choice for those looking for food, drinks, and entertainment in a Boston sports bar setting. I would definitely stop by again if visiting family or passing through the area.
