Great authentic irish restaurant. Live music is nice, but, at times a bit loud. Specialty drinks are amazing. Lots of other little pubs in area which make this a great first stop. Visited a few times (2012,2013)

We went in to The Black Rose just for a quick drink, but would definitely return. The place was quite busy, bar and restaurant. It had a nice feel to it. It's just around the corner from Fanuell hall.

Our friend told that 'this pub is a must visit if you are in Boston'. So true! We enjoyed the drinks there, the crowd was lively and the food's delicious. What more can you ask for! I loved the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich and the the fish and chips dip was out of the world.

What a find!! Tucked away on a side street, we rediscovered this restaurant/pub & truly enjoyed our visit. The place was packed = very popular with locals & tourists. Bar tender was terrific. Thanks for a great experience.

Just what you expect in an Irish Pub - cold beer, friendly service and a live band playing Irish tunes. Nice crowd, not too young or too old. The atmosphere is great and we definitely could have stayed all night.

I was looking for a little more pub-type atmosphere and it was not the that day. Although it was recommended by several bartenders it did not impress me.

Fun entertainment and their bangers and mash, excellent! The sausages are delicious and homemade. Not bad pricing considering the neighborhood and surrounding pubs.

We like or draught beers. We like a good pub atmosphere and we like good service. We fell into this pub on a very cold night and were delivered on all three counts. There is a good selection of beers and our Irish bar gal was an excellent hostess. Can't comment on the food as we didn't partake but what... More
