During our trip to Boston we decided to have dinner at the Back Rose restaurant and bar. We are a family of 4 (Two Little ones) and found this to be a great location for dinner. Food was excellent and server was kind and friendly

The "real" Irish music is on the weekends. Other nights, particularly Mondays with some Brennan guy (who is admittedly a fine guitarist w a decent voice) is playing Billy Joel, Toby Keith and Johnny Cash. While they are fine artists, please do not confuse any of them for "real" or "live" Irish music substitutions. Leaving the bar VERY disappointed.

Off the beaten path, but was worth it. You can get a Lobster for just $12 at lunch. My son got a burger and loved it. The atmosphere is good and our waitress had to be from Ireland.

Was intrigued by the Black Rose as it was mentioned for its fish and chips. The location is easy to get to and though Saturday lunch it was crowded we were seated quickly. I of course had the Fish and Chips pared with a glass of Harp. My guest had a chopped salad. The fish was cooked well but the... More

Great selection of import and craft brews. Classic look and atmosphere with live music later in the evening. A great place to stop in and unwind over a few pints while listening to some folksy Irish style music. I will stop in again for sure.

We were staying at the Marriott Custom House and decided we would do something close by, my granddaughter and I walk out the door of the hotel and The Black Rose was advertising the $12 lobster. My granddaughter had the Lobster special and had a lot of water and was still under cooked. I had the Ruben, I agree with... More

My husband and I were caught in a rainstorm near Quincy Market and decided to try and avoid the crowd at Quincy Market and found The Black Rose one block away where we knew we would actually be able to sit down and eat lunch. We had a friendly server and average corned beef sandwiches that were very lean but... More
