At this canine-themed tavern, the word growler refers to both jugs of beers and bellowing pups. Dog-lovers can bring their pets to the oak-paneled spot—which features antique prints of dogs and an outdoor patio—and choose from 20 American craft suds (Sixpoint, Allagash). To eat, find hot dogs from Mile End and sausages from Salumeria Biellese in pretzel brioche buns, plus fried pickles and sandwiches.

Let's be real, nobody goes to Stone Street for the food; you go for the drinks and the happy hour. However, working in the area I find myself at Stone St very often and it's frustrating that most bars in the block either have god-awful food, or charge you an arm and a leg (Harry's Steak, I'm looking at you). This place is not so bad on the food end - their deviled eggs (I know, random) are actually bomb, and they have some decent smoked chili and a nice cauliflower dish.

The beer selection is great, they have decent wine, the staff is nice and it doesn't get overcrowded. Solid spot to meet for drinks, or just grab a bite when you want a break from the office and don't feel like Chipotle grab-and-go.


Awesome place to chill.  I admire the fact that this place is not dirty, smelly, nor sweaty even with this many people drinking late at night.

I came on a late Monday night and the place was empty.  Chose some seats near the back and they didn't offer waiter service, but that's even better.  

Food wasn't that great, but it wasn't too horrible either.  

I enjoyed that the bartenders weren't jerks and that the restrooms were nice and clean.

Overall, an enjoyable time with great people!
