    I sat at the bar and tried the pumpkin, cinnamon beer. Was asked how I liked it and said it was a little sweet for my liking. The bar lady switched it out for an IPA. Such attentive service!

    The inspiration for the TV show “Cheers” at Beacon Hill. Not everyone will immediately know your name, but you’ll surely meet lots of people here who’ll be glad you came! Kids allowed up to 10 pm.

    Upstairs bar is the set bar. We we're here on a crowded hi day weekend and we're still able to find a spot to sit after waiting just a few mins. Had a beer and bowl of clam chowder.

    The Giant Norm Burger is a delight. Calling it a whopper on steroids is apt. We also had the starter platter which had the best of everything. The drinks were refreshing, just with too much ice.

    Of all the touristy stuff we did this was probably the most touristy. Like everything else in Boston it wasn't cheap. I did like the chili and it was a good amount. It has 2 gift shops.

    This is a great place to visit. Good beers, food and the locals are very friendly. The bartender upstairs was extremely friendly and on her game for customer service.

    Cheers! Not everyone knows your name but it's worth a gander just for the nostalgia. Simple bar food that fills you up, great beer selection.

    Hoegaarden and fresh fish & chips its a winner. Window. Seat facing Beacon Street is worth wait a while. Good times Cheers!

    Its a dive bar downstairs and a full mock of the tv show bar upstairs place smelled a bit not recommended but if your a fan of the show by all means see it get a beer

    The inspiration for the show is downstairs. Go upstairs for a replica of the set from the show. Enjoy a beer in Norms spot!

    Though everyone may not know your name most people know why you want to be here. Go ahead, be a tourist, visit the place and enjoy a pint or Norm's beer!

    I'm a server here, and I highly recommend our Bacon Blue Burger. Make sure to ask your server about the beers of the month, we're all pretty knowledgeable about the booze!

    If you go and want a seat, always tell the hostess staff that you are eating. Otherwise they won't seat you. You have to just stand and hope to be seen over the crowd at the bars.

    Can get very crowded, and they don't take reservations. Definitely visit if you enjoyed the show!

    Couldn't find Norm seating at the bar, but besides that, like being in the tv show. Gift shop is inside and has Norm nuts :-))

    It's pure nostalgia nothing else. Over priced everything and considering the show ended 20 years ago, It should be more humble. The memorabilia is expensive just like the drinks. Go just cuz.

    Since I don't drink, I ordered a water. Apparently not a lot of people do that at Cheers! LOL. Super fun place... great to see NORM and FRAZIER name plates, etc.

    Sit in Norm's seat and live the dream. Just remind people to yell "Norm!" when you walk in to get the full effect.
