I ordered The New Irishman. It is a sirloin burger topped with caramelized onions and porter cheddar cheese. It was amazing! The burger was juicy and tasty. We were also given a sample of their special eggplant fries, since it was our first visit there. Service and food was great and the atmosphere is fun. It seems like a family... More

Went with friends who really like this spot. The wait was over an hour (our fault for going on a Saturday around 7PM) but wasn't bad. Menu interesting. I had the steak tips. They were done just right. Everyone else was happy with their meals as well. One thing I find hard to get used to: we must have had... More

I stumbled upon this place thanks to TripAdvisor. It was close to the hotel where I was staying and I wanted a nice, quick location with good drinks and food. And that I found along with a nice irish pub atmosphere. The staff was quick and really nice, even offering us a complimentary order of the Eggplant fries, which were... More

Looking for a place for lunch after visiting Boston College. Found this place on trip advisor. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Highly recommend. Price very reasonable.

Wonderful Irish pub in Newton Upper Falls. Classic fare, plus some more contemporary options. They are GREAT if you have food allergies (my wife is allergic to both gluten and dairy). One of the few places in the Boston area where you can get a Great burger and fries for under $10. 16 taps the last time I checked, and... More

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
