“Fish and chips are outstanding”

Everyone raves about the Fish and Chips , and their Irish Breakfasts. Plenty of Spirts to go around and extremely friendly atmosphere.

“Great pub food and atmosphere!!!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Delicious appetizers and reasonably priced drinks with excellent service, even on a busy night! Group did try the bananas foster which was delicious but the banana texture was a bit off. As indicated in other reviews, parking is an issue, especially with the wintertime snow piles.

“Good food and great beer selection!”
Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

I do not live in Massachusetts but come quite often for work. This is my favorite place to eat. This small place has a homey feeling as soon as you walk in. Everything I have had on the menu is fantastic. Service is consistently slow but the food is well worth the wait. My favorite dish is the boiled dinner. Deliciously prepared corned beef, potatoes, and carrots! Portions are large. Can't wait to go back!
