Had better expectations. Sat down for a Mother’s Day meal and drink and the server took over 20 minutes to acknowledge we were there. Luckily the manager stepped in shortly after we arrived. The server or bartender Ed poorly surveyed the area. He ignored many tables that were sat for long period of time then we saw him eating and standing to the side. Hopefully the next time we attempt this it won’t occur.Their IPAs were delightful as well as the food. This was the best part. Thank goodness for a great manager that’s attentive!

Had an awesome night on Saturday, but yesterday for brunch one of the bartenders Isaac was great but the other one was on his phone majority of the time not paying attention to much. The one drink I asked for he threw out and had to remake about 3 times. Kudos to Isaac for taking care of everyone at the bar!

Great bartenders in a really fun atmosphere. Drinks are on par for the area, going to spend $10-14 on a cocktail.

Their trivia night is well run, and the bar itself is modern and cozy. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is warm.

Weird. This is a bar, with great potential to be a simple restaurant. They fail miserably. The food is quite good, but it does not act like a restaurant.

Trophy Room is the best trivia bar in Boston. Food is so immaculate. Nachos are 10/10. Pizza is 11/10. Drinks are a strong 12/10. They do trivia every Thursday.Johnny is the best!

We love trivia nights on Thursdays at the Trophy Room! The service is amazing and the vibes are fabulous. We always feel welcome and enjoy amazing food and drinks. You have to try the nachos. Johnny, the manager, is our favorite person ever! Highly recommend.

Bartender (John older man) was rude and didn’t address me as a person but spoke to others about me in third person? His ego has truly gotten to him and he feels now he has the authority to randomly make security decisions that aren’t based of facts after just entering the establishment. He hates men who have conversations with Females?He should be fired and young person who is good at what they do hired! This person is a Boston Buzz Kill and does not promote Happiness. Multiple instances indicate he is unhappy with his life.

First time here, came with some friends and I have to say the service and drinks were 10/10. I ordered The Naked Experience and Fruity Rita. Our waiter Jonny was great, he was friendly and attentive! Definitely will be returning!!

Always friendly, always great food. Bartenders and owners are so nice. I always love coming here for dinner when I'm craving a good salad, burger, chowder. Really well done American fare. Queer-centric but straight people go too. Gets to be a bit of a party after dinner. Great vibes.

Stopped in from some drinks with the gang after walking back to the parking garage from the St. Patrick's Day parade in Southie. We only spotted the bar because it was right beneath the Pineapple Hotel, looked like a regular apartment building from the outside. But I bet in the summer, they open up the big windows to the street and that would be great to stop by again.We were greeted by the bartender at the bar like we were old friends, he was really funny and made us laugh with with questions and joked with us for a bit (didn't get his name but he was wearing a Green Celtics zip-up). Ordered a couple beers, a coke and water for the table. After chatting and watching some of the NCAA Basketball games we ordered a Hawaiian Pizza and it was cheap! The value may have been low but the pizza was delicious!! The bar staff was great too, one of them even pulled up a chair for our friend who was standing at the end of the table. They bathroom signs also say "Whatever" on them, open to anyone and not gender specific... clever idea! Looking forward for another great time at the Trophy Room.

Great service and food! My friends and I randomly went here after walking for 30 minutes because we didn’t have a reservation for brunch in Boston. Vibe is on point with vibrant colors, interesting decor, and people of different backgrounds all coming together and having a good time. Staff were friendly and had great recommendations. We would come here again and recommend our family/friends to go here

Had a lovely evening on first day .Next day I come in and the drinks at bar looked delicious, so I ask the bartender what drink did he just make and I want one ! He says - I don't remember. And he just made the drinks . Lol.I wanted to leave so gave a $20 bill for my $13 chicken wings . He gave me $2 back , saying it's 13.Well !! I gave you $20 not 15 ! I know you might be busy or busy to respond or may be listen .The point is Be nice to international travellers and don't throw that attitude around. No one deserves it ! 🙁

My girlfriend and I were visiting from Ottawa, Canada. We walked around aimlessly looking for somewhere to eat and saw Trophy Room! Walked in, service was amazing, food was delicious and everyone seemed to be in a great mood! If we ever plan another trip we'll definitely have a return here planned!

We were relocating to Boston a few months ago and swung through the Trophy room while checking out potential places to live. When we walked in we were greeted by a Boston Treasure, Johnny! He has been the most welcoming new friend. We frequently stop-by just to catch-up with him and share stories about our adventures. Not only is the Trophy Room a staple of the community but Johnny and the rest of the crew are pillars of the neighborhood.

Trophy Room was the first place me and my partner visited after moving to Boston and John welcomed us with open arms. Now we come every so often just to chat with John and enjoy the fantastic cocktails he makes. Definitely a must visit in Back Bay, especially when Jhon is behind the bar.

Carlos is amazing and went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. We are from St Louis and he made sure to tell us what to visit and where to go. He was so welcoming and personable. We will definitely recommend Trophy Room to all our friends and family when they visit Boston.

I’ve lived in the neighborhood for 15 years and this is the best staff and menu it has ever been. I love the brunch and bloody marys and my friend and I meet during the week for cocktails and nachos! John, one of the bartenders, is amazing. His personality and work ethic keep me coming back. What a joy!

I like this location. However, since it reopened post pandemic, it's a lively scene. Great cocktails, food is tasty. Alternative RuPaul viewings in case you can't or won't go to Club Cafe viewing party. My favorite is still their signature cocktail: The Trophy Wife (passion fruit and vodka based cocktail). Swap the vodka for medium or high grade tequila = 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️💯

I visited the Trophy Room with a friend following a recommendation and was definitely not disappointed!! Although it was a very busy Thursday evening, the service we received was fantastic! Our bartender John was quick to suggest great cocktails - we had the Shade which was delicious and well made, as well as a glass of the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with our meal. The atmosphere in the bar was so good that we ended up having starters and salads as well! The pineapple wings were very tasty and the Harvest and Wedge salads were served quickly. Please pass on our thanks to John as well as the kitchen staff for great drinks, delicious food and an overall lovely experience in a beautiful environment! A definite highlight of our visit to Boston!

Stumbled upon this place on OpenTable, and I highly recommend! We got the fig pizza & pork sliders. Both were delicious. The cocktails were top notch. I loved mine called “Trophy Wife”! There is such a cool vibe in the restaurant. Will definitely be coming back, especially for the drinks!

Had a great dinner with my wife at a nice restaurant. The service was top notch and The food was great. We sat at the bar away from the bar which was perfect for two. The restaurant is LGBTQ friendly and has a nice atmosphere. Glad we stopped in and I would recommend it.

It’s kind of a bummer what this place has become. Still great bartenders, a good group of customers. But whoever is making the bigger decisions is really out of sync. Was there tonight and there were probably 50 to 60 people there, lights came up at around 11:30 for closing. I don’t know what they’re expecting in terms of numbers to be able to keep the place open, but it makes you not want to come back when the night is interrupted at that point (and there’s a gigantic line at club Café). This location’s history helps it draw a much more authentic and down to earth crowd but the lack of dependability makes it difficult to support. Still hopefulthey can turn it around!

Spent last weekend at the adjacent Staypineapple with friends. Had an amazing time on Saturday night and then on Sunday afternoon for the Pats game with Frank the bartender at the Trophy Room. He was so knowledgeable and friendly, his drinks were top notch, and he took great care of the 6 of us in our group. Shoutout to John as well!! Food was great and all of the staff members were awesome! We will definitely be back!

Interesting place. The food was passable, not awful not amazing. Where it really shined was the drinks. Nice cocktail menu and they make an excellent Vesper of James Bond fame. Very odd ambiance, the room is very long and thin like a galley which makes sitting at tables awkward... The person sitting on the outside of a table gets bumped a lot by passing traffic. If you can, sit at the bar. Worth a visit!

I was in town for a couple of days and staying in the area. I don't usually write reviews but after subpar service literally across America post-covid (and by no true fault of the establishments, everywhere is just running on a fraction of the manpower), this place got it right. Rocco is a gem and the other guys behind the bar are stellar as well. Full introductions and aware of when your drink was getting low- what it SHOULD be in a bar. I will absolutely return and recommend this place to anyone. Inclusive, fun, and just a great way to spend a Thursday evening.
