This is one of the best, and most fairly priced bars in boston.
Great service, great ambiance, the upstairs fireplace and a whiskey is great in this cold weather.

$16 for a lobster roll and housemade chips (fries) is a bargain for downtown. And it was great.
They have live music all the time which is fantastic.

The Black Rose Irish Pub is a landmark in Boston. One of the more popular Irish pubs from what we were told. There is live music seven days a week.

There was five in our group, so we experienced five different entrees. Everyone of us was pleased.

Darks woods are throughout and flags from Irish regions hang from high ceilings.

Menu is available online and includes traditional Irish pub standards.

I must say I am a bit miffed about this place. We got a couple of recommendations to go there for dinner from people at our hotel. We also read some good things on Trip Advisor. We only had one night and had just driven 10 hours in an ice storm so we were looking forward to an authentic Irish bar/restaurant like I had visited perhaps 13 years ago on my only other visit to Boston. In short the atmosphere is not at all what we expected and the food was just very average. It wasn't bad but I would definitely not recommend it. Sorry.

Great bar. Check it out if you're around fanueil hall, or boston. Great draught selection, great bartenders.
