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.

When I lived in Boston I used to go to this pub, friendly professional bartenders recently off the boat tended to your needs and friendly patrons from the neighborhood. Good bar food as well. Now, it has slipped a bit, still a pleasant place that pours a good pint but the service has gone down hill. The food is ok... More

Ate here yesterday, had the sausage and chicken tortellini w/alfredo sauce dinner. I thought it was really good and the portion was big. Had a few draft beers that clinched my thirst. The barkeep was nice and I believe the owner was running about as well. Both women seemed like very personable people and appear to enjoy the interactions with... More

Family owned bar with good selection of beer on tap with regular Bostonites, possibly the next Cheers. The food is good but the homemade bread and scones that are brought to the table are top notch. When we ate there, we had homemade chocolate chip scones and hearty brown bread. Deliscious!!! Affordable, good food and location. Also close to Fenway... More
