We were walking the freedom trail and decided it was time for lunch and found this place. The place was very busy but we like to sit at the bar so we got a couple seats there. The bartender was a whirlwind of activity but provided good service and recommendations. After a nice Smithwicks and Harps beer one of us... More

A trip to Boston wouldn't be complete with out a stop into the Black Rose for Shepherd's Pie and a pint of Guinness! The pub is Irish to the core and welcomes you in from wherever you are from. Give it a try!

Loved the atmosphere, their Guinness and their staff, but the Irish food choices were fantastic! I would definitely visit again...

We stopped in while walking by after finishing the Freedom Trail. We grabbed beers & had some appetizers. Place was full on a Friday at 3 pm. Service was good. Food was good. Beer was cold. Nice Irish Pub in Boston!

My wife and I had dinner here, with me having the lobster and her the Guinness stew, both being very tasty and great value. The music from the duo was a mix of Irish and 60s-90s melodies and was top class. The service was good and the staff friendly. The place was packed and it had a great atmosphere. Would... More

I had a great dinner and the atmosphere was great. The live music was nice and it wasn't to loud. The staff was very friendly. I thought my waitress took way to long to check in on me. I was going to get desert, but I didn't see my waitress for over 15 minutes. I was dining alone, so I... More

During our trip to Boston, we were very surprised when we literally fell upon this place while walking about Quincy Market. It was hot and nearly noon when we walked away from the commotion of the market and came upon Slate Street. And there was this beautiful Irish pub... My husband and I drank a pint of Harp, poured by... More

We really enjoyed our evening at this tavern. The food was good, the atmosphere had energy, there was live entertainment, and unexpected people kept joining us. What better way to spend an evening in Boston!
