“Great bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We only called in for a drink but sat for quite a long time at the bar watching everything going on. OK, so it's just an Irish Bar in Boston, but there's loads going on and it had a great atmosphere.

“Typical Irish Pub - Gotta Love Em'!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

What's wrong with a typical Irish Pub - NOTHING. Decided to go bar hopping after the Duck Boat road & this was a great place to quench our thirst. Not a huge variety of draft beers, but you can only drink/taste so many. The beer & top shelf liquor prices were very reasonable. There are no freebies here. If you want to munch while you drink you pay for it. The service was very good & we would probably return for lunch or dinner when in town again.

“Just another bar by the convention center”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

Went here for a conference reception. The beer selection was limited. Lots of tv selection for watching your game. One bartender was very good and always had a good attitude.

“Great Fried Pickles”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Go here every time I am in Boston. They are great for an early drink, happy hour, late night. 2 areas, upstairs and street level. Street level bar service seems to be better than upstairs, but upstairs is quieter. Great place to meet friends and have a good pub style meal. The fried pickles are to die for!!!! Great location and easy to get to.
