We had dinner here, the 12 dollar lobster special. We had to wait about 20-30 minutes for a table but it was worth the wait. Some nice hardshell lobster, We had just gone to Maine and these lobsters were better. My kid had a clam chowder that was real good and my wife had a side of slaw that was... More

I have been to this place twice and both times I was pleased. The last time I went, I had the lamb burger which is served with feta cheese, tzatziki sauce, red onion, and spring mix. It was absolutely phenomenal! My friend who was with me ordered the salmon with colcannon (a mashed potato and cabbage mix that was surprisingly... More

Stopped by for a late dinner our first night in Boston. There were 6 of us that just skimmed in under the kitchen cutoff time, but staff were accommodating and friendly. I had a salad, which was great! Lots of good reviews from the others on the clam chowder as well. Really enjoyed our visit there!

I received a gift certificant to The Glynn Hospitality Group so I decided to try out The Black Rose. Paid $18 for parking in a garage which annoyed me. It was in a good location if you are making a day of being in Boston but I didn't love paying that much for parking. There is street parking but it... More

Staying in Boston for a couple days and someone suggested The Black Rose to us, so we tried it out. The place is pretty cool, it's a classic Boston Pub. The service was great, our waitress was awesome. The food was great, and the lunch menu is a pretty good price. Over all it was great, I suggest it!

We had an excellent time at the Black Rose. Stopped in for a Guinness on draft and ended up ordering their Fish and Chips! Flaky and delicious! Huge portion! Bartender was friendly, and efficient! Live music made for an excellent atmosphere. Great Irish Pub!

Not to be missed. Great traditional acoustic sets mingled with American classics. The highlight of this bar is its live music.

I came to Boston on business and was here for St. Patrick's day. The food & drink was authentic and the people were great. Then a very drunk man walks in to the bar dressed in full Yankees apparel pants, jersey and hat yelling obscenity's about the Boston red sox. Needless to say it did not end well for the... More
