What to Eat in and Around Fenway Park, Home of the Boston Red Sox

From in-park burgers and hot dogs to neighborhood staples nearby, here’s how to dine before, during, and after a baseball game

Baseball season is upon us again, and with baseball season come ubiquitous Fenway Franks, overpriced beer, and plenty of soft serve within Fenway Park. Outside the stadium, there’s a bustling neighborhood packed with old standbys and newer hotspots. Read on for dining information in and outside of the stadium, and check out this page for an archive of all Fenway-related dining news.


Inside Fenway Park

From Fenway Franks to twists of soft serve, the park is once again stocked with classic ballpark food for another season. But scroll onwards for some new cocktails, snacks, and meals to keep an eye out for in the stadium this year.

Food

  • Jumbo Fenway franks: Because supersizing a Fenway Frank is never a bad idea. The jumbo Fenway Frank is a four-ounce beef hot dog that will be sold all around the park this season. Various locations in Fenway Park

Outside Fenway Park

The neighborhood is teeming with grab-and-go lunch spots, sports bars, and swanky dinner spots for before or after the game. Find a selection of places to check out below, and click over to separate guides for sports bars and dining around the Fenway neighborhood for even more options.

  • Bleacher Bar: On the site of the former away team’s batting cage, it’s situated under the bleachers with a view of the field (limited during games — a glass garage door comes down), but no game ticket is required, so this is a good way to be inside Fenway without paying the big bucks. Enter on Lansdowne Street. The menu is mostly focused on sandwiches, along with some typical comfort food snacks. Open year-round. 82A Lansdowne Street
  • Cask ‘n Flagon: Fenway’s quintessential sports bar, right in the heart of the action, where it’s been for over 50 years. There’s plenty of comfort food, including burgers, barbecue, and more. 62 Brookline Avenue
  • The Sausage Guy: A just-outside-of-Fenway-Park icon. Swing by the cart for sausages and hot dogs before heading inside the stadium. 49 Lansdowne Street
  • El Pelon: Eat tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and more at this popular taqueria on Fenway’s “Restaurant Row.” 92 Peterborough Street
  • Regina Pizzeria: It’s not the original (head to the North End for that one), but it’s still pretty darn good. 1330 Boylston Street
  • Tasty Burger: The flagship restaurant of a beloved local chain, located inside a converted gas station. (Be sure to check it out before they close it down and relocate to a new spot around the corner.) Burgers, dogs, and the like, plus a lot of beer. 1301 Boylston Street
