1. Never, ever, ever give up the signage rights, because you will never get them back.

I want to like Frank's.. I really do. But every time I try to eat there (I'm on try #4).. the service is just so bad. I end up walking out because we can't even be seated or 30 mins for a drink order is ridiculous on a Thursday night)

Sure I tend to eat later (> 8pm), but if your hours are until 9, you serve until 9. Not start to clean up and ignore customers.

After more than 18 years, the North End's Scotch 'n Sirloin restaurant has closed its doors, squeezed by the economic crunch that has snuffed out so many local businesses in recent months.

I am curious if it would make it today.. considering that neighborhood has changed so much and now has alot of residential very close by.

We gotta keep up with what the hip kids like so from now on we're going to be "Bourbon and Hangar Steak!"

I kid but I get your point, they were there in an era where it was mostly feast or famine depending on how the teams at the garden were doing but it's much more of a seven day a week area now.

Wow, "economic crunch". Ever heard of that? Nowadays, we're worried about Amazon actually setting up shop here.

Lots of fond (yet dim, lol) memories of the S&S.

Not to be confused with the Up & Up in the Hojo's in Kenmore Square.

Damn, that was fun...

I forget if it was Scotch and Sirloin or the Chart House on Long Wharf but pretty sure Larry Bird punched someone! Those were the days.

I heard tell of a water leak to the lower floors by previous bosses. Apparently quite a mess!
