Nice place to meet friends for a night out. Always a crowd, even on Sundays. Authentic atmosphere and friendly staff.

Food and Drink in a real Boston Pub! The drinks were wonderful (try the red sangria) and the few food selections I tried were tasty (shepards pie - yummmm) Atmosphere is casual and friendly.

We had really lovely food in here, and we will certainly return, while we are in Boston. The service was also very good, with friendly staff, who took time to chat.

We stopped here for a drink after dinner. Guinness and Sam Adams. Menu looked good and we would have liked to try it if time permitted, atmosphere is fun and lively, Bar tender was attentive and friendly with a nice Irish accent! We will return next trip to Boston and try the food.

The service was impeccable . Was lucky to find this place since there are no other inexpensive non coffee shop places nearby. Had the fish and the sea dog blueberry beer. Left happy !
