We were drawn into the Black Rose by the advertised summer Lobster special - and it was a great catch. From a service, food quality, and value standpoint I'll give this place an "outstanding".

Best ever shepherd's pie. Good location. Great service. Size of meal is worth the prize. My husband and I especially appreciated the ambience. thought we were in Ireland.

Just across from our hotel on the corner, pleasant pub feel, seated right away, very young gal took our drink order (second day on job) ( college students all moving in this weekend). She did a nice job, couple trips to verify the answers to our questions. Food came promptly and was good, beef stew for me and beef tips... More

Spent out last evening of a week long trip to Boston at the Black Rose. Started with supper which was pretty good (we had the Reuben sandwich and fish and chips), portion sizes we adequate and prices were moderate (for typical pub grub). The service was also good. Liquor and beer prices were certainly not cheap but given the pub's... More

The shepherd's pie and Reuben are pretty tasty also. Many good beers on tap. I didn't get a strong sense of a true Irish pub, but it is simply a good place to get away from the shopping crowd at Quincy Market.

We decided to stop in here for lunch, rather than battle through Quincy Market while starving and with 3 little kids. This proved to be a good decision. They were accommodating, service was timely, and there was an unobtrusive musician performing. The food was tasty, and the draft beers were fresh. A good meal, not super expensive, but not super...
