You won't find a bigger sports bar in town than Tony C's. TVs line the bar area so you will have a great view from pretty much every seat in the house. If the weather turns warmer (it is New England, so you never know), head up to the roof deck to catch the game in the sun overlooking Fenway Park. You'll hit a home run with an order of crispy Philly cheesesteak wontons or warm pretzels to nosh on during the game. There is also a second location in the Seaport District.

At this entertainment complex, you'll have so much fun you won't want to leave.
