Once you open the door to this place the folks are welcoming you into have a seat and enjoy your stay. The drink list is diverse and the pub food choices should meet the needs of most. The favorite item appetizer, the Eggplant!!!!!! Eat your veggies and enjoy a beverage, your mother would be proud. The salmon Caesar salad was... More

I have been to Dunn's a dozen times over the past six months. It is one of my candidates for best pub, and I love a good pub that is not too loud-- unless it is very busy-- has good food and a menu that is both traditional and innovative, and has professional and friendly staff. This place meets all... More

Terrific menu choices and definitely more than your typical bar food. Enjoyed the beet salad (minus the cheese) with grilled turkey tips and on another visit the spicy thai chicken. Kid's ordered steak tips and baked scrod and there wasn't a bite left. Here's a link to the menu http://www.dunngaherins.com/lunch_dinner.php p.s. Prompt and friendly service added to a great experience... More

I was a bit skeptical of DG's based on the location, but I was shocked at the service and food. We were immediately welcomed into the restaurant when we entered the door and asked if we wanted a drink while we waited for our table. The staff was great and the food was better. Parking in the lot is a... More

Come here monthly, food is great and great pub scene. While a little pricey, would recommend to many.

THis is a traditional irish pub. you dont have to go all the way into boston to find great brews, right near 128. Parking is a bit painful but the beer selection and pub fare make up. Worth a try. They do keep good seasonal beer.

The parking attendant I believe his name was Doug was awesome had us park on the road and went in and reserved 2 seats at the bar for us. The place was packed most likely because the food was excellent and the bartender knew how to pour a Guinness which was perfect temperature. if you want a great lunch good... More

I've been here before but this time brought my older parents, who are hard of hearing, fussy, and a handful at a restaurant. The server and the greeter could not have made them feel more welcome if they were family. They were kind, patient, and generous with a complimentary appetizer for new patrons. Beyond this, every one of our 5... More
