Irish right down to the music!

We ended a day of touring with a drink and enjoyed the music. Truly felt authentic with the Irish singer and music. We were staying right across the street at the Custom House so it was a perfect walk home.

Black Rose is a great restaurant and bar! They have live Irish music every day upstairs and downstairs! Food is great and the bartenders are funny! It is a casual fun bar! I can't wait to go again! The prices for everything was very reasonable as well!

Went for an Irish coffee! Definitely not afraid to put their whiskey in it.We seemed to be non existent to our server who basically ignored us the entire time. Other servers seemed on the ball though

Stopped in day after St. Patrick's for dinner. Nice pub type atmosphere and friendly staff. Ordered fish and chips. Chips were cold, not even cool but cold. Did not get a chance to send them back. Fish was good. Live guitar player made the evening pleasant.

We came to have lunch the day before Patty's Day, and we loved it so much we spent 20 hrs there in just 2 days. It felt authentic, great music, good food, and fun service. One of my favorite spots in Boston

I had a late dinner here back in February, it was right across from the hotel and I receive a discount with my room key. The place was pretty busy that evening. My server was very nice and well informed. She gave me suggestions from the menu. I chose the chowder with fish and chips. the chowder was very tasty.... More

We stopped at the Black Rose on our layover from our vacation from Dublin. Foods was a food as you would find in Dublin, I had cottage pie, my wife the chicken pot pie. they do need some training on pouring a perfect pint of Guinness. Over all a great lunch.

Great food I'll admit my Reuben was amazing! The fries were pretty good no complaints! Great atmosphere live performance! The only thing I had to complain about was the fake Irish/Gaelic accent our waitress had.. Very noticeable and quite annoying!
