Really good Irish Pub on Boyleston. The place has cool memorabilia lining the walls and can be a good place to watch a game.

Very popular with students, noisy, fun, lots of big screens so you won't miss a minute of sport. Worth popping in for a cold beer or two.

I just love this place. The owner is one of the Drop Kick Murphys (a Boston Irish pop rock band). The atmosphere is that of a typical Irish pub, with a friendly welcome, lively conversation and great music. There is a great range of beers and good pub food, such as excellent burgers, mac cheese, shepherd's pie, fish and chips... More

We just stopped by for a few drinks in a bar that claims to be the oldest sports bar in the States. The Staff and customers were very and it was interesting to look at the old sports memorabilia. We did not eat here but it was very busy.

$1 cheeseburgers on Tuesday nights (yes they are real sized burgers!) half price appetizers until 7pm, and good drink specials. McGreevy's has bar seating, tables, and booths as well as two floors of seating with TVs for various sports. Clean bathroom too! We had a great time and I would go back.

I could spend hours looking at all the sports memorabilia on the walls, very cool to see. Good Irish bar, great clam chowder and sandwiches! Would definitely return!

We stopped at McGreevys for a drink after a Red Sox game. It was busy but not over packed. The service at the bar was quick. The walls are covered in memorabilia that all have numbers. There's a book that describes what each item is. The crowd really seemed to be having a good time chatting and singing along with... More

After walking from Fenway, decided to stop by for a beer and a snack. Asked for a Sam Adams Lager, thinking on tap, only had bottles, a shame, but still hit the spot. Had nachos for a snack, came well endowed with jalepenos, wonderful. As bars go, about average for the Boston scene I experienced, which is still pretty good.

There was 9 of us eating lunch here on a nice summer day, when a mouse scurried across the floor under the next table. I looked at the people sitting behind us who looked horrified too. When we told our server, all she said was, "yeah, that's a thing here." No apology or OMG really?

We had dinner here prior to walking to Fenway Park for the Jays - BoSox game... Great decor with dozens of old photos and other Red Sox related memorabilia on the walls... I had a toasted turkey sandwich on whole wheat- very generous with the turkey and decent beer selection... would go back again....
