About the Stockyard

The Stockyard is a classic American Tavern that has served quality food and drinks to the greater Boston Area for over 40 years. Located just outside the city, this historical restaurant has served as a Boston landmark, viewable from the Mass Pike. A 150 car parking lot, multiple private function venues, and 200-seated dining area makes the Stockyard a Boston rarity. When you walk in, we can guarantee you will be welcomed with a smile. Passion for excellent food and exceptional, friendly service is the Stockyard Philosophy. Our staff is dedicated to going above and beyond to accommodate personal needs and ensure patrons are treated as valued guests, not just customers.


  • I so appreciate your help in organizing our delicious luncheon and providing us with such a charming and patient wait staff.

    Many thanks, – our group was singing the praises of you and the Stockyard all the way home.

    Sincerely, Sheila Veidenheimer
  • Wow, what more can I say? Stockyard Tavern was an ideal location for my best friend’s recent baby shower. She was coming in with her fiancé from the west coast and we wanted a venue close to Boston, where the families could meet for the first time! Everyone was completely amazed by the Tavern Room.

    The location was perfect — cozy, warm, comfortable, stately, beautiful and affordable! We got all of that AND great food and top of the line service! From the moment that I told Aimee what I needed for the event— linens, gift table, mimosa station and more, she had a clear plan in place and it was ALL executed as soon as I walked into the room.

  • We just wanted to thank you all for the great time provided for our employee’s “post-wedding celebration”. Everyone who attended commented on the quality of the service, the background music, the wonderful feel of the Tavern Room and most importantly, the food. The whole process was very smooth from beginning to end, and it was a very relaxing and enjoyable night for all.

    When we have another need for an evening out, you’ll be the first call we make ..

    Thanks again, Mary Ann Quintal Action Bearing Company
  • Just wanted to thank you both so very much for last night’s dinner. Everything was perfect-food, ambiance, waitress, and we all had a great time. Wish we were there now, sitting by that fire!

    Thanks again.

  • I just want to thank you all for helping provide my wife with a special night!  She was surprised and then elated.  The venue and the food were phenomenal!  Your guidance, help, support, and flexibility made this such
    an easy and comforting experience for me.  I couldn’t have asked for more. Yet, the service was GREAT!  Please tell the waitress (whose name I am forgetting) and the bartender that I am so appreciative of their service and flexibility.  They made the night enjoyable for all who attended.

    I am forever grateful,

    Malcolm Cawthorne
