The food here was delicious!! I got a phenomenal seafood stew, my mom got an amazing grilled cheese made with Irish cheddar, my brother got lamb kabobs, and my dad got fish and chips better than I had when I was in England. The beers were good too. Service was efficient and friendly and our waiter was from Ireland. I... More

Three of us went here for lunch. It was my 21-year old's pick. I was pleasantly surprised by how good the food was, especially the fish-and-chips which was presented wrapped in newspaper for an old-world feel. We also had excellent fish chowder and oatmeal with plenty of strawberries. Our waiter was a young man who was very polite and professional.... More

Get the fish & chips and a beer on draft. The servers/bartenders are the real deal, with Irish accents so thick you can barely understand, but very friendly. Great place to eat after visiting Harvard or MIT campuses and in a quiet area of town.

Found this place on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try and so glad I did!! Everyone that worked there was friendly as well as the patrons. Great atmosphere. We ordered the crabcakes (special) and the fish 'n chips. THESE ARE THE BEST FISH N CHIPS I HAVE EVER EATEN. They are served in newspaper and do not need... More

So my husband wanted to reward our kids (middle school/high school) for being subjected to a truly awful road trip from the Carolinas through New Jersey to Massachusetts and found The Druid for the very best brunch/breakfast. Then my kids and husband took me there (long story but I ended up at The Druid!) for the very, very best brunch/breakfast.... More

We stopped in for some beer after dinner. The place is tiny - it seat maybe 12 at the bar and there are a few tables. The beer selection is great - and the bartenders are genuine Irish lads. The decor is very interesting. There was a DJ, who was outrageously loud. So loud that most of us left.

I dream about the Irish Seafood Stew, the fish is perfectly fresh and properly cooked, the sauce is tomatoey and garlicky, coating the lovely fish and toothsome veggies.

Highly recommend either the fish and chips, or hamburger. Both are outstanding. Sometimes the cocktails can be a tad strong [and I do like a potent cocktail] but if you ask nicely, they will bring a bit of seltzer so you can mix and you wish. We like the two dishes mentioned above so much, we haven't tried the rest... More
