Wonderful little pub

Found through a google search one night looking for a new place to go for family of four. Just minutes away and we never had heard of it. (also just minutes from TA HQ) It is easy to drive past, and hard to park in its small side lot where they require everyone to back into the spaces (good... read more

Dunn Gaherin's is a wonderful little tavern that is in my Dad's old neighborhood in Newton and every time we come home from errands in Boston, Dunn's is the guaranteed stop for lunch or dinner! The staff are family and the regulars also treat you like family - I've never been to any other place that you instantly feel right... More

A gem of a pub in a residential neighborhood. Service was excellent and food was very good. Try their eggplant fries.

Food was very good, nice selection of traditional Irish dishes and American. Excellent Boston Clam Chowder. Owner Manager was tending bar. Packed on a Thursday night which to me is an indication of good local support.

Went here for lunch. The place is quaint with lots of lights strewn about. The beer selection is extensive and they have a lot of unusual IPA's. We were seated promptly . Our waitress was not very knowledgeable when it came to questions regarding the beers they offered which was a little frustrating as they have quite an extensive beer... More

DG is a warm friendly place, with families, couples and larger groups all accommodated. The "classic pub food" is just your regular American standards, with a few meat pies added in. It's a pleasant experience, for sure, but is would not choose the destination for the food, or ambiance. That being said, as a casual place to meet and have... More

A warm and friendly and inviting neighborhood pub. Just what you would expect throughout Great Brit. Classic pub food, hometown recipes, and personal friendly service. We will be back!
