We went to Whiskey Priest for lunch and a few beers. The vibe was very lively, the food was delicious. Try the French Onion Soup and the Reuben Panini!!! Marie was our bartender and she was the sweetest! This place was jam-packed on a Saturday afternoon, which felt like a Friday after work :)

This is a classic Boston bar. We headed here to meet up with folks from out of town the night before we got married. We thankfully got there before a line formed and they gave us a few tables in the corner based on the number of folks we expected to show. The waitress was good about checking in on... More

This is exactly what my boyfriend and I needed after a fun filled weekend in Boston. Terrific Bloody Mary and the food is amazing. Comfort food for the soul. The French onion Guinness soup is a MUST!!!

We popped in to the Whiskey priest when stopping over at the conference Center. The menu is pretty simple and that suits the bar, it's not complicated. Simple food, a good choice of drinks and simple service. I went for a burger and fries and can't complain, it was well cooked, tasty and arrived in good time. The only complaint... More

Had a pretty extensive drink menu. Appetizers and burgers were delicious. Good view of the water. Went for lunch on a Saturday (party of 8), and was able to be accommodated. Only negative was the women's bathroom was a little dirty and had a smell.

Drinks, snacks and a view! Right on the harbor. Fun place. Waitress was on it! Nachos were very good. We'd go again.

We stopped in this restaurant/bar for a quick lunch. The food was good, the view is typical of places that are located on a pier. We didn't see too many Irish items on the menu. It is a typical sports bar with alot of TV's. When walking by at night, this bar is hopping.

5 of us chose to eat in the Whiskey Priest after having a late, biggish lunch so not wanting a massive dinner. We chose our food carefully and weren't disappointed. There was a huge range of whiskey and the location right in the harbour was lovely. Our server was attentive.

It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon so the outside deck overlooking the harbor was an easy choice. Our server Elizabeth S was very friendly and attentive and was like hanging out with a great friend! We snacked on the Spicy Shrimp and the Chicken Bites. We had asked Elizabeth for her suggestions and they were both excellent! Thank you for... More
