A great beer selection and great bar food often go hand in hand. I was out with a friend in Boston and we were looking to drink some beers and have a good time in a relaxed enviornment. She had heard good things about Atlantic Beer Garden and we decided to give it a try. Atlantic Beer Garden is located right on the Boston Harbor (tea anyone?) and when the weather is nice out, it is probably a beautiful place to grab a drink.
After looking over the extensive beer menu and each selecting one, we also decided to share some appetizers. First we tried the Macaroni and Cheese Balls, it was a ball of macaroni and cheese breaded and then deep fried and served with marinara sauce. They were very good, however, I would have preferred them to be a little bit cheesier.
Next we shared the Buffalo Chicken Wontons, it was grilled chicken tossed with buffalo sauce and cheese then battered and deep fried and served with ranch for dipping. They were delicious.
My friend decided to order a burger for her main course, she picked the Stuffed Smokehouse Burger. This burger was stuffed with bacon and cheddar cheese then topped with BBQ sauce and some more cheese. This burger was messy and delicious, my friend loved every bite!
For my meal, I ordered a French Dip Sandwich. The roast beef was thinly sliced topped with swiss cheese and sautéed onions. The meat was good, but I would have preferred some type of sauce to add a creamy element to the sandwich so the bread wasn’t so dry. Overall it wasn’t a bad sandwich.
With our meals, we were each offered a side. We both opted for the Curly Fries. The fries were nice and crispy and had a nice seasoning on top of them.
