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

No green beer here, just a nice Irish Pub. They know how to pull a pint of Guinness. The Pub Grub is what you would expect. Did I mention a traditional Irish Session on the last Wednesday of the Month from 7:00 to 10:00?

I love Irish pubs, and this is one of my favorites. Dark, cozy, great food and drink, interesting 'craic'. Great Guinness!!

Ate here this evening before heading over to the UMass Lowell hockey game. Food was good. Ordered the buffalo fingers which were ok. Some of them were over cooked which made them inedible. My husband ordered the steak sandwich which he enjoyed. Service was excellent. Nice choice of beers.

If you're in downtown Lowell and don't know where to go to get a good meal, drink and friendly atmosphere, you will find it all at the Court. The wide array of beers on tap and the pub style menu make it a "can't go wrong" event. At some point you will be greeted by one of the owners, Finbar... More

We sat at the bar and the bartender was friendly. My wife had a salad and I really liked my haddock sandwich. Exactly what we wanted for a quick lunch and would be a great place to hang out if we were local.

This is a classic Irish Pub. Great food with that homemade flair. Lots of beers to choose from. Love the windows that can be opened to the outside during great weather. Some musical entertainment.
