Good, basic food and drinks. Lively and affordable; nice place to take out of town guests. Occasionally they have live music in the evenings.

This great little Irish bar and restaurant is ideally located on the Green line on Beacon Street. Great atmosphere generated by friendly staff. Over a few visits I had "tater skins", chicken wings, meatloaf dinner and my all time favorite meal ever, the beef stew. It is a nice thick stew with ample beef, lots of veggies and a big... More

Love this place. The food is great, and its pretty quiet and comfortable at lunchtime. The beef stew is fabulous (and gluten free.) The owner is very friendly and helpful and after only a couple of visits, you're welcomed as a regular!

The server was just lovely! Food was great! Warm and fun atmosphere on a cold and rainy afternoon. If I lived in Boston, I would be a regular here!

I ordered buffalo wings. I swear they were frozen Weaver wings. They were drenched in a puddle of buffalo sauce. They were so incredibly soggy I couldn't eat them. We also had fish and chips. The portion was generous. The batter on the fish was a little under cooked. The drinks and service were fine. I would only return for... More

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.
