I went to Four Square this afternoon for lunch and really enjoyed the visit. There is a long wooden bar on the right side as you enter and tables to the left.
The atmosphere is casual, I really like the vintage breweriana that decorates the walls. There is stuff from old breweries like Schaefer, Knickerbocker, Narragansett and Haffenreffer.
The beer selection appears to center on seasonal beers and IPA's. You can expect about 18-20 drafts with highlights that include Allagash White, Blue Hills Anti Matter, Harpoon IPA, UFO & 100 Barrel Series, Long Trail Blackberry Wheat, Wachusett Blueberry Ale & Green Monsta and Mayflower IPA.
I'd say there is about 30 or so bottles with options like Wachusett Larry, Hazed & Infused, Harpoon Leviathan Imperial IPA (reasonably priced at $6), Victory Festbier, Southern Tier Unearthly IPA, Shipyard Old Thumper, Victory Hop Devil, Dale's Pale Ale and Troegs Hopback Amber.
The food was good, I had a couple of appetizers and some beers. They offer salads, paninis, sandwiches, burgers, entrees, pasta dishes and a few specials too. Everything I had was tasty, including the salmon chowder.
The Four Square is definitely a good addition to the area, offering solid pub food with a nod to craft beer. I plan on going back soon.

Went to this place with the fam after seeing many positive reviews on <ahem> Yelp. Apparently it has been open since February 2011 and is gaining a positive reputation.
Long, narrow space with the bar running all along the right side, with a mix of hi-tops and regular tables opposing. Small, seats about 70. I visited on Saturday at 6 with my family, by the time we left @ 7:15 there was a small wait for a table & the bar was full. 2 large flat screens showing sports. Comfortable atmosphere. Apparently they have bands after 9 most nights, but when I was there I didn't care for the 70's soft rock being played on the stereo.
Around 16 taps, some junk but a big focus on locals & regionals like Blue Hills, Mayflower, Harpoon 100-BBL & seasonal, 2 Long Trail taps, Cape Ann/Fisherman's. Definitely some thought was put into the selection, though could use an upgrade.
Where this place stands out is the quality of the food and the value. Tight menu of killer burgers, pizza, pasta dishes (great bolognese) and simple entrees. Obvious that scratch cooking is done here, everything we had was tasty. Prices were on the low side for the quality - coming from a reviewer that is sensitive to this issue! :0) Quality burger for $10, tasty individual pizza for $9, top quality chix alfredo pasta dish & a the afore-mentioned bolognese for $14. Saw a mac-n-cheese dish at the next table that looked great.
Friendly, prompt service here too.
I will be back here again.
