Great Irish Bar & Restaurant in Brookline

Wonderful night at O'Leary's on Beacon Street near the Boston/Brookline border. Beautiful Irish Bar with fantastic food and service. The New England Clam Chowder was a good as I have ever had! Very friendly place for dinner, snack or to watch a ballgame. I just loved the place.

O'Leary's is exactly what you want in an Irish pub: local, family-owned and focused on good food and service. They aim to please with an excellent menu featuring delicious choices (e.g The Fisherman's platter), but aren't the flashy-style pub. They simply provide the desirably relaxing atmosphere and food that is what it is (delicious, but why dress it up with... More

The entrance is almost hided beside an hardware store. Finded the door, you will enter in an Irish pub and restaurant. The selection of sandwiches, fish and chips, and other dishes is quite broad, and the quality of the food is very good. The place, as the tipical Irish pub, rustic, so i wouldn't sugget it for a formal meeting... More

I didn't want to leave Boston / Brookline without experiencing a real Irish Pub and this place didn't disappoint. The service was good and the food was good and the beer was good. It was exactly what I expected from a Boston Irish Pub. If you're in Brookline, its right downtown, so check it out. I recommend it.

O'Leary's I'm not a scone lover. I didn't know that they aren't supposed to be hard and dry. So when I was served a basket of soda bread and scones with my dinner at O'Leary's I was happily surprised by how warm, moist and sweet they were. The breads and scones are baked fresh every day at O'Leary's. How nice!... More

My favorite pub in tow. Locking from outside you probably don't think it worth to try, but once you experience the food and the service, I'm sure you'll be back always. The atmosphere is nice, the food is good (good portions) and in a fair price. Apparently they have live music friday/saturday night, but I never stay there until too... More

Not a good place to go watch a game as the 2 TV's are at each end of the bar so you have to turn 90 degrees. But from tables 1 person can watch ok. Food was good. A place for a friend or date to have conversation.

Had great food there and plenty of drink offerings. The bartender was great although I can't spell her name! LOL It's a very unique Irish name. Stayed right up the street and made sure to stop in there every night during our stay as she was very friendly and made us feel right at home.
