Live music, great pub food, congenial atmosphere
Situated in South Framingham, the oldest sports bar in town has a solid reputation for great pub food, live music Thursday through Saturday, and a comfortable, laid-back atmosphere.
“We’re at the 6-mile mark on the Boston Marathon route at 666 Waverly St., Framingham,” Owner Marc Noe noted with a grin. “The 4’s is truly a gathering place for sports enthusiasts, food fanatics and those looking for great, live entertainment.”
Menu items are classic pub fare: wings made in almost any conceivable manner (breaded and deep fried, teriyaki, honey BBQ, Cajun, buffalo style and more), burgers built to order, mile-high club sandwiches, fresh pizza made daily and, of course, a full bar, including ice cold beer. The 26.2 Marathoner IPA is on tap as well.
Online reviews tout the wings as the best around and highlight the 8-ounce juicy burgers, made your way, Union House pizza and weekly specials.
Named to represent Boston’s four major professional sports teams, The 4’s boasts six large high-definition televisions (always tuned to sports action), dart boards for league competitions, and ample space for the blues, jazz and other bands that frequent the establishment Thursday through Saturday, starting between 7:30 and 8:30 p.m.
No reservations are required, dress is casual and there’s free Wi-Fi. Take-out is available. Bring cash or use the onsite ATM. Parking is on-street or in the private lot across the street.
Kitchen hours are Monday through Thursday 11:30 a.m.-9 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11:30 a.m.-10 p.m., and Sunday noon-8 p.m. The bar is open Monday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m.-midnight, and Sunday noon-9 p.m.
“We’ve kept pace with the times,” Noe proudly added. “The pub was established in 1933, and I’ve run this place for almost 30 years. If you don’t move with the times, you’ll be left behind.”
Enjoy a cheese pizza on Monday for just $5, any burger you want for $4 on Wednesday (4-8 p.m.), 50-cent wings every Thursday and $4 cheeseburgers, complete with French fries, on Sunday. If you buy two or more cheese pizzas, you’ll receive $3 off each pizza.
Check the full menu for the wide range of appetizers, specialty items “From the Bench” and “From the Club House,” special weekly offerings and available discounts.
The house band is TNG (The New Generation). There’s a Blues Jam every Thursday night, starting at 7:30 p.m., and popular musicians include Pete Henderson, Gary Bernath and Lights Out, Steve Dineen, Chris Fitz, Cindy Lou, Racky Thomas, and Beyond the Blur.
“This is truly a place where everyone gets to know your name,” Noe added.
