Classis Boston Irish Pub

If you are staying at the Boston Park Plaza and need a place to hide from the construction, this is a perfect escape on the same block. Small but nice selection of beers, good service.

With so many good and authentic Irish pubs in the city, this place just didn't quite hit par. The food was decent, the drinks were pricey, and the service was fairly slow. Good if you're in the area, but certainly nothing to seek out.

This is a good restaurant for a reasonable price. It has a very nice set up with TV's in the bar area but secluded booths for meetings.

Friendly place, loud from laughter and talking, but that's okay for me. Turning down the music might make the talking not as loud, just leave the laughter level alone though. :)

Stopped here for a few drinks and some food in the evening. It was really busy, but service was good. Food was tasty and there was a really good atmosphere. Great music playing, but not too loud.
