Good atmosphere

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.

I had the steak titbits. The meat was cooked to order and lean. My daughter had the fish and chips which see said were top... More

Good food, good service. We eat here often when we're in Boston. The service is friendly, the prices are good. It can be noisy after work on Fridays.

Friendly bar staff, good drinks at a decent price. I never ate here, aside from a delicious bowl of soup, but the aromas coming from the kitchen certainly made me want to.

Pub atmosphere. Didn't eat there but did see people having some late night food. Stopped in for a night cap since the Boston Park Plaza bar was closed at 11. Busy bar business. Seemed like a younger crowd, out after work.

Cozy place to wander into on a Friday evening. In town for Garth Brooks concert and they were playing his songs!! Yay! Beer was cold and delicious, beef stew was hot and very tasty. Fast service, place was filling up fast as we were leaving. Sad that we can't go again before we leave!

We booked a table for NYE, I even emailed the bar directly to check they were open and that our table would be ok to which the manager confirmed it would be. We therefore booked through open table and thought nothing further until we arrived at Logan airport to receive confirmation from open table our reservation had been cancelled (this... More

After arriving and checking in to the Boston Park Plaza hotel, my boyfriend and I headed to M.J. O'Connor's for a late lunch and a drink. The staff was excellent and very fast. We had clam chowder (very tasty) and he had a burger while I had the chicken sandwich, which was delicious and a very good portion. Their drinks... More
