Great Irish Pub

Perfect food and atmosphere. Service by a real Irishman was prompt, friendly and efficient. Husband had the fish and chips in newspaper! What fun. Perfectly cooked and he said it was the best he ever had.

Amazing place, felt like I was in an Irish tavern. The energy of the place is different does not have to describe it seems to have magic around . And best of all was the burger I ate had never eaten anything so tasty I hope that when I return to Boston will be a mandatory stop.

Great atmosphere and friendly service. In no time we had a good beer in front of us and were selecting our meal. The bustling crowds made it clear that it was a good choice to come here. Food was tasteful and was served in no time.

The pub is good for drinks! Not that well decorated or friendly. Staff did not feel like they wanted to work and service was average. Nothing like other Irish pubs I have been to. For example: The Thirsty Scholar in Beacon St near Inman Square is ten times nicer; staff is friendlier and food is great! Between the two I... More

Irish pub in Boston. Tables, chairs, and bench seating. Waiter service good menu choice. I had Irish sausage baked beans and mashed potatoes which sounds pretty ordinary but it was delicious . Tasty sausage and lovely creamy potato and scallion mixed. TV showing English live soccer. My only disappointment was no puddings for dessert (which is my favourite part of... More

We were visiting our son at Harvard and wanted to focus more on Cambridge on this trip instead of Boston. This sounded great from the reviews and it did not dissappoint. Friendly staff, live Celtic music, and great food. The fish and chips, baked cod were excellant. I tried Down East cider and it's my new favorite. Reasonably priced for... More

I have been there twice in the last month. The food Is hearty, very good and plentiful. The menu is a little eclectic for an irish pub but there are certainly plenty of traditional irish pub specialties. Plenty of beer on tap and bar-like, but the waiters are good and the food comes up pretty quickly. I have HAD THE... More
