The area near Fenway isn't just for sports bar. If you're looking for something different, head to Loretta's Last Call for some Southern food and live country music.
The appetizers here are great to share with a big group, like the BBQ Chicken Wings ($10)
Fried pickles and jalapeno
Chicken and sausage gumbo ($14)
Fried chicken and waffles, maple BBQ, whipped butter ($14). They actually have three types of fried chicken here (buttermilk, classic Southern, and Nashville hot) - I think the one to come with the waffle was the buttermilk
Since I went to high school in South Carolina, I have a thing for sweet tea, so I had to get their Front Porch Sweet Tea. This drink is made with peach moonshine, sweet tea, and lemonade. Their drinks tend on the sweeter side.
The crowd started rolling in close to 10pm, which is when the live music starts.
The food at Loretta's was overall pretty good, I was surprised to find solid Southern food so close to Fenway! If you're ever looking to try a new place before or after a game, check out Loretta's.
