Restaurants near Boston College's Alumni Stadium: From Pub Grub to High-End Dining

When you're bound for Boston College and Alumni Stadium, you'll find yourself surrounded by a wide array of restaurants that will welcome you through their doors for plates of Boston's best. Alumni stadium sits in the Chestnut Hill section of the Boston College Campus allowing you to sample from both Newton, and Brighton restaurants.

Whether you're looking to get in the groove with the college kids who are always seeking ways to save a buck or two or you'd rather treat yourself and those you're with to a meal that's a bit more upscale, you'll find plenty of restaurants to do just that around Alumni Stadium.

Chestnut Hill's bustling Route Nine is jam packed with stellar dining options. Several in the lifestyle center, The Street, are well worth a visit including Del Frisco's Grille, and Shake Shack.

But if a true college experience is what you're after make you're way to Brighton's main streets and check out BC hangouts like CitySide, or Roggie's. Here you'll be surrounded by BC kids looking to have a good time, get some good eats, and spend a small amount of cash. Chill with a plate of wings and a beer in the always hopping Buff's Pub.

If you want to take your dining experience up a level and enjoy the charm of Newton Center, put on something a bit nicer and head to Sycamore where you'll get a first class meal you'll remember long after the plates are cleared.
