Lunch was very enjoyable. I took the suggestion of another review and had the soup of the day (potato leek soup) it was delicious. All four of us enjoyed our meals

Casual bar with good food. The steak tips here are great, and I really like the Irish Dip sandwich. My father in law used to rave about the fish and chips. This place has a nice, friendly atmosphere, too.

Always a place I visit when I am in Lowell, Massachusetts Friendly atmosphere with a mixed age crowd and if you're lucky the owners who are Irish will come down and say hello the fish and chips are to die for really big portions

A pint of Guinness and your in business for a great night! The bartenders are very nice and accommodating. The food is very good , affordable and fast! rebel burger is the best, and was featured on thrillist for being one of the best burgers in the nation. Also the bomb shot is great too!

Pubs are not all alike, but The Old Court is one of Massachusetts' best examples of a real Irish pub! Great food, great beer and whiskey of course, good service, and the kind of atmosphere that makes for a sense of belonging and great socialization with friends and family. And that's what an Irish pub is all about!!

right around the corner from the hotel I stayed in. Very cool place. Small and was not busy at all. Service was excellent . I had steak & cheese egg rolls as an app, and then the Turkey burger. Both were excellent as well. If you're looking for a quick, pub-style restaurant in Lowell, I definitely recommend the Old Court!

I have reviewed The Olde Court in the past, but never mentioned how crazy good their soups of the day are. We try to get to the Olde Court a few times a month since it is our favorite pub in the area. Every time we go I always start out with soup and each time it is a masterpiece.... More

4-5 stars on the neighborhood Irish pub scale. The service was very friendly, attentive, and fast (even on a Friday night); the pub food good; the atmosphere lively; and Guinness - what more do you want? Had a great turkey burger, and excellent sweet potatoes fries with horseradish sauce. The burger was nicely cooked - not fire charred/blackened like some... More

This pub was right around the corner from our hotel, and seemed a slam dunk since we had just driven 7 hours from home. Maybe he was faking it, I doubt it, but when we got there (5:30), the only server was the bartender who seemed to have an impeccable Irish accent and humor to match. I choose to believe.... More
