"Food that tastes as richly wonderful as it looks." That's what The James Beard Foundation has to say about our creations. Yes, we continue to enjoy this sort of critical acclaim, but rest assured, you do not have to be an epicurean to appreciate the inviting ambiance and mouthwatering food at The Back Bay Grill. 

Join us soon! We'd love to see you for a meal in the dining room or perhaps just drinks and appetizers at the bar.

At The Back Bay Grill, your satisfaction is our priority.
