From the team behind Boylston Street’s beloved McGreevy’s, Lower Mills Tavern in Dorchester is the cozy home-away-from-home joint every neighborhood needs. With local brews, worldly whiskeys, and a menu that’s equal parts adventurous and down-to-earth, there’s enough here to satisfy everyone in the group, and keep them coming back for more.
The restaurant is, first and foremost, a tavern, meaning it’s an establishment that takes drinking seriously. With rotating taps from all over and dozens of crafty bottles and cans, the beer program here is no joke. There’s also a whiskey list as long as your arm, and craft cocktails featuring local spirits and house-made syrups and infusions.
The menu follows suit, using seasonal ingredients and supporting local farms, featuring all the pub-grub you’d expect to find, like charcuterie and cheese, alongside some more eclectic selections you might not anticipate. The menu is globally inspired, meaning exotic spices and interesting ingredients are just as likely as burgers and fries. Daily specials adorn the mirror, and the menu is constantly changing.
The space is warm and casual, with exposed beams and bulbs, leather banquettes, and wood all over the place, from the tables to the walls. Front-facing windows open onto the street, inviting you in. During daylight hours, the Tavern is a café, offering strong coffee and free WiFi.
Lower Mills Tavern serves lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.
