"Turn Back The Clock" To A Victorian-Era Atmosphere At Stoddard's

Stoddard’s Fine Food & Ale brings downtown one of the most authentic early American eating and drinking experiences, embodying the “Classic American” age of culture, cuisine, cocktails, and beer. Located in Downtown Boston's Ladder District, Stoddard's, housed in one of downtown's most historic buildings, has resurrected the lost art of crafting cocktails and true American comfort food in an attempt to reawaken the grandeur of days past.

For inspiration in crafting the spirits portion of the gastropub, Stoddard’s Fine Food & Ale has looked to the “Creator of the Cocktail,” “The Professor” Jerry Thomas, who penned the 1862 guide, "How To Mix Drinks, Or, The Bon-Vivant’s Companion," credited as the first cocktail book ever written. The immense bar at Stoddard’s is 30-feet-long and is a replica of the most elaborate bar produced by the Brunswick pool table manufacturer.

The beer menu focuses on American style ales and lagers, mixed with some of the best offerings from across the pond. Stoddard's five cask-conditioned beers are kept at perfect cellaring temperature and represent one of the largest collections in New England.

The gastropub menu features authentic early American comfort fare. Appetizers range from $8-14 and include items such as: Cask Ale and Smoked Gouda; House Charcuterie Plate; and Jerusalem Artichoke Soup. Entrees range between $15-31 and feature choices like: Stoddard’s Burger; Au Natural Pot Pie; and Prime Beef Rib-Eye and Potatoes Prepared Two Ways.
