“Fantastic”
Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

I haven't been here since we moved a few years ago. Arrived Saturday 5:45 pm and found the place charming with a 10 minute wait so we sat at the bar and found some interesting local draft beers. Our table was in the bar section and waitress was friendly and helped us with the menu. My wife decided on a grilled veggie sandwich on gluten free bread and I had the eggplant rollatini. It was interesting how all the waitstaff helped each other and the food was out in what seemed like 10 minutes. My wife loved her sandwich and my eggplant rollatini was something that I could have every week and hope that they have it soon as it was a special this night. The portion was large enough that I took a doggie bag home. We passed on desert as we had plenty of deserts leftover from Thanksgiving at home. The bill seemed very reasonable and we decided that we will be back soon.

“My favorite suburban Boston pub”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Great setting, excellent service, great bar. Pub food at the upper end of the spectrum. Never had a bad or suboptimal meal. Excellent selection of beers. Atmosphere quite similar to that of pubs throughout Ireland.

“What you'd expect from an Irish pub in Newton”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We've been to Dunn Gaherin's a fair amount, mostly after softball games but also occasionally for work lunches. The food is super generic but the beer list is decent and they usually find plenty of space for our larger groups.
