Whether it be an exhilarating ball game, an exciting game of trivia, or spectacular live music, there is something at Cheers for everyone to enjoy! About the Show: Cheers, an ensemble comedy set in a small neighborhood pub in Boston, followed in the comic tradition of predecessors The Mary Tyler Moore Show, M*A*S*H, and Taxi, where the differences between a bunch of idiosyncratic characters were played for laughs each week. Conceived and produced by Glen Charles, James Burrows, and Les Charles, who’d also been at the helm of Taxi and The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Cheers was critically acclaimed when it premiered on September 30, 1982, but almost canned in its first season due to abysmally low ratings. Viewers soon came around, thanks to the clever storylines crafted by lead writers Tom Anderson and David Lee and the flawless performance of the stellar cast and in 1984 Cheers joined ratings giants The Cosby Show and Family Ties on NBC’s powerhouse Thursday night line up.*
This is a great place to go to in Boston especially if you watched the show Cheers. The actual restaurant isnt in the show, the shows replica is upstairs and so is a gift shop. The restaurant/bar is actually kid friendly and my 5 year old nephew LOVED the chicken "fingers" (actually chicken tenders). Price is very reasonable for boston with large portions. you can also buy the Cheers mugs that you drink from. such a great experience!
It's . . . touristy. If you like the show, then by all means stop in. If you're under 30, there's a good chance you've never even seen it, in which case, don't bother. It's over-priced and the food is nothing special. Boston has a lot of bars, and this one isn't a standout.
We had to go there when we were in Boston so cool... My kids were so excited it was the first TV show place they had been. Got our shot glasses and toasted Norm! Great time! We were taking the girls to Cambridge and Salem the ocean views were incredible.
Really a fun place to eat in Boston
If you are a fan of the show Cheers, then this place will be a real treat for you. For everyone else, it's definitely cool but nothing spectacular. A pretty cool local bar, actually, but the fact that so many tourists are constantly coming in/out makes it tough to become a regular spot.
Enjoyed supper at Cheers on June 12th, 2014
The restaurant was really crowded and we didn't realize the actual replica was upstairs until after we'd ate so we ended up eating in the downstairs part. The food was great and it was probably my favorite part of our whole day in Boston.
I've never seen of episode of cheers so this bar lacked the sentimental vibes that fans of the show feel. Food portions were big, beer was good. Very crowded the day we went and hard to hear people sitting at our table. Unfortunately we didn't go during a big Boston sporting event.
