A very quaint and pinturesque Irish Pub. I enjoyed a cup of their vegetables soup and a nice juicy burger. Both were great. I came down while a snow storm was hitting Boston, so it was not crowded at all, but lucky for me, they were open. Picture is for the beer I selected for that evening, it has a... More

Had the best clam chowder I've ever had. My friends' meals all looked amazing as well, the only problem was I wished my stomach was bigger. Atmosphere was fantastic. We ate out all over Boston and this was my favorite meal.

The Black Rose is a busy, large Irish Pub in a fantastic location, very close to the Boston Custom House and to the Quincy Market. Great from 10 pm, when live music is offered - and it's real Irish music, with customers singing and drinking. A bit noisy, but definitely worth a stop. It's become our every-night stop in Boston.

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.
