Good and atmosphere were just average. Friendly staff, annoyingly attentive. Fish and chips were alright. Hamburger was subpar.

Looking for a place for Dinner in Lowell - saw the IRISH Pub with great ratings and decided to give it a shot. It was a fairly exciting evening - the Bruins were still working the playoffs - and that was on every flat panel. The inside is decorated nicely. The beer was good and flowing. The service was friendly... More

From the food to the atmosphere and the perfectly poured Guinness The Old Court makes me smile. ...and when there's some live Irish music playing the Irish will come out in all of you. Friendly staff and patrons make it all the more enjoyable. Great place to watch a game or just meet friends for a pint or two.

Within walking distance to Lowell Memorial Auditorium and major parking garages. Great spot for pub grub and libations before a show....Irish pub atmosphere with traditional pub grub menu. Nightly specials are always good bet. Kid friendly, but know it's still a pub.

I have been here a few times before, but just never wrote a review. The Old Court is an interesting Pub. It has a very nice atmosphere and very friendly staff. If you are looking for a relaxed lunch, quality food, and a very nice place to meet with friends the Old Court is perfect. The menu is 50/50 American... More

My family and I stopped in here for lunch while visiting the National Historic Park in Lowell. It is a short walk for either the visitor center or the Boott Museum, and seems to be in a very pleasant part of town. The service was terrific, our waitress was cheerful, helpful, and funny; the food was good (we had chicken,... More

We went to the Michael MacDonald show (outstanding) on Saturday and needed something quick. We love Irish Pubs and this was close to the venue. Food was decent and our waitress was excellent. I had a Old Court Rebel Burger (good stuff), someone got the tips (good) and 2 fish & chips (not the best). Good beer selection and typical... More

We stopped here for lunch while touring Lowell NHP. The waitress was pleasant. The food was rather good, though not a ton of options on the menu, just typical bar fare. Also served reasonable sized portions. Having read a review that the beer selection was awesome: We were not super impressed. There were maybe 20 beers, and only a few... More
