Great to visit Flanns again

Flanns was my favourite bar and grill, for at least a couple of meals each week, when I lived in Boston for about five years. I visited Boston and Flann's after 9 years and I can't say how nostalgic it was to dine here again. Impressively, nothing had really changed about Flanns - it looked the... read more

I went here for lunch alone during my weekend shift from the hospital. The bar tender was nice and food was great. They are now doing credit card purchases only over 20$ so just a side note to bring cash if you are alone or a small party. ATM inside.

We came here after being at TGI Fridays and being totally disappointed. Rob was our server and he was fabulous, friendly and attentive and we loved his brogue. The food was a real surprise. We had the Irish Chili and we each had burgers. Fresh hot and delicious. I would HIGHLY recommend this place and if you have Rob as... More

We had the curry fries for the table and they were amazing. I'll definitely be back. Good portions and a comfortable pub atmosphere.

...Not quite, on my first visit, but folks(servers and guests) were friendly and helpful. On this day, there was a mixed crowd of students and older soccer fans watching the European finals. Great selection of beers. I had no food, but it looked like ok pub grub. It is not in my neighborhood, but I would go again if it... More

Service from the front door bouncer, to the bar tender, to the owner of the joint made it for an easy decision to never return to this dump. Absoulute discrace to call themselves an Irish bar.

Fun and lively atmosphere. Walked in for brunch on a Saturday. Never been to Ireland but interior resembles older pubs we've been to in London. Tasty and affordable. Walking distance to North Eastern, WIT and Mass Art. Perfect for school visits.

Looks like it's right out of Ireland! Drinks and food are wonderful, with a great waitstaff and decor. Awesome trivia on Tuesdays. Love this place
