Nice Spot !!

Irish bar without the Diddily Aye edge ! Good beers on draft. Good food . Friendly staff and in a good location . Need to sort out the lack of wifi considering you get people from over seas. All in all a good spot and I would go back .

Good atmosphere, lots of screens, good beer and snacks whilst they play live soccer TV games. Can't fault that combination. Location great, on Boylston right in Back Bay

Ate an early dinner with 9. Enjoyed sitting in the open front window. Teenagers loved the shepherd's pie, pizza, Reuben & pizza. I liked the pot pie. Fish and chips good but not as good as what you get in the UK.

Great, friendly Irish sports bar. The people in the window caught my eye and it all looked great, so I gave it a try. I ordered the fish and chips The best I have had in America, Scotland's are still Better, but the atmosphere is great, a nice place to watch the game.

My wife and I walked into this place after ditching a bar/restaurant down the street that was so crowded we couldn't hear ourselves talk! By contrast this bar was very pleasant - atmosphere, service, food quality, beer selection! + I had some yummy fish tacos and the wife had a scrumptious Jamaican chicken dish + The beer selection was excellent,...

The place is very fine, with a good environment. Thay have a good set of draft beer too. I didn't asked for food, so I can't tell about that.

Met some friends for late night drinks. Staff was friendly and service was great. We sat next to the open windows in the front and had a nice view for people watching.

Visited here for a few drinks. We were given menus for food and drink but then given a different list of beers and were told the main drinks list was out of date. Myself and another in the group ordered the Kona ale but it the server came back to say it wasn't available. I chose another IPA which was... More
