I guess you would have to know Boston’s songs to get that super punny and creative title. Look it up if you didn’t the reference. Yesterday was St. Patty’s day and Omar’s sons band was playing at Bostonz Bar and Grill in Eastpointe. They were playing early, but we felt we were up for some day drinking. We checked out the menu prior to heading out as we always do, and were surprised to see a fairly large menu and preliminary reviews were pretty positive. We decided that as this was our “cheat” day we would enjoy some of their offerings.
The bar was a little “rougher” than we expected and our thoughts of a delicious dinner were questionable. We decided to get some appetizers and snack while we enjoyed our Guinness Beers and watched the band. We decided to call an audible and eat dinner at Green Lantern (which we have reviewed and LOVE). So for snacks, we chose to order what they called their delicious fries, which were described as “skinny and delicious, just think McDonalds” and a combo platter which consisted of chicken tenders, chicken wings and cheese sticks.
The fries must have changed since the website was last updated, as the fries that came out were very unexciting. Average fries, cooked in probably aged oil and served slightly salted. The chicken tenders were pretty good, seemed to be homemade but needed a bit more flavor. The cheese sticks may have been homemade, as they had that floury taste that comes with some homemade cheese sticks. The chicken wings came out completely naked and although they brought out some ranch, they were embarrassingly under-dressed.
The beer was cold, the band was good and the waitress rocked it, even though she said it was her first day. She was friendly and attentive. The owner even gave us a free Guinness t-shirt as we ordered the first Guinness of the day (apparently more of a bud light/MGD kinda place). We probably would not intentionally head out just to visit this establishment, but if Omar’s sons band played again, that would be fine. Probably though, just sticking to the cold beer and entertainment.
We did head to Green Lantern after with our friends Steve and Mary who came out to support the band. If you want a review of Green Lantern again its simple, great pizza (remember the pools of grease)?, great salad, cold beer, great subs and yummy bacon. You can read all about it HERE.
To summarize, don’t be afraid of Bostonz, we had a great time and go to Green Lantern. Go now. Nom nom nom.
