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

This place was always my favorite while going to Northeastern. It may not have the "scene" that Our House or Flannigan's does, but that's a good thing. It's got great happy hour food deals and a 5 dollar meal every day. It's sporting a great craft beer draught selection. And the atmosphere can't be topped. If you are looking for... More
