How to Save at Fenway Park: Food Deals Near Fenway

Cheap Eats Before Red Sox Game

In honor of the Red Sox back for the season, my April Feature Friday posts will be Red Sox themed! If you missed my post last week on How to Buy Cheap Red Sox Tickets, make sure to check it out!

Are you looking for restaurants near Fenway Park? How about places to eat before a Boston Red Sox game without going over budget?

Obviously eating at home or eating a homemade sandwich on the go is the cheapest option, but sometimes it’s a lot less fun. I’ve rounded up a few specials and food and drink deals near Fenway Park!

Please keep in mind that many of these Restaurants get packed before Red Sox games, so make sure to arrive plenty of time before a game to get a seat and to take advantage of these deals!

(As an example, I went to the Yard House on a Monday night and I got one the last good table at the bar at 5:15 p.m. & there was a wait for a regular seating).

Some of these deals are unadvertised during Red Sox games, but you should find that they do work– just make sure to ask first if you are not sure. If you do have a problem at a particular place on the list, please let me know in the comments below.

Yard House Happy Hour Chicken Fingers and Fries

Yard House: 126 Brookline Avenue; Select half-off appetizers and pizza from 3-6pm and 10pm-close (*Pictured above: Chicken Fingers and Fries on the Appetizer Menu for $5!)

Bar Louie: 121 Brookline Ave; Sign up for Louie’s Crew to get a free appetizer! Half Price off select apps and flatbreads from 4-7pm Monday-Friday

Some of the places mentioned are a little bit of a walk, but you may find cheaper prices (and less crowds) away from Fenway Park.

Please let me know in the comments below if I missed any great food and/or drink deals before (or after) a Red Sox game!

Entertainment Books for $15 (Plus Free Shipping)


Are you familiar with Entertainment Book? If you are not, Entertainment Book is filled with coupons for local restaurants, attractions, retail stores, and much, much more. There are many different Entertainment books for different cities, but there is a Greater Boston Entertainment Book!

These books retail for $35, but do go sale (like now). Right now you can buy an entertainment book for $15 with free shipping through April 14, 2014. You can also add a second book for $10 which would make each book $12.50 each.  You could give the second book as a gift, or get another book for either the same town or maybe a future vacation spot.

The majority of coupons in these books expire at the end of November, so you do have time to use them! I typically receive this book as a Christmas gift and keep it in my car so I don’t forget to check the book before I go into a restaurant, retail store, etc. throughout the year.

There’s a nice glossary in the back which lists participating businesses by alphabetical order and by town, which is nice when you are on the go!

For more information or to purchase an Entertainment Book, please head here.

Do you use an Entertainment Book to save money? Have you bought one for a vacation destination instead of your local town?
