“Overrated Irish Pub”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

If you remember the 'old' Harp, skip this one!Bartenders are a little too big for their britches & the place is a little too polished. I couldn't find a guiness nor a harp beer in the whole place-and it's supposed to be an irish pub???

Very good food and drinks. It is place full of Yuppies for the most part. Clean great food and they have bouncers in the afternoon when it is Gameday.

Just stopped in for a quick app.. We ordered the calamari....it took a bit and when it arrived it was cold so we sent it back. No problem.... Comes back and it is the same calamari just cooked some more. Really?
Oh please...dried out. Never again. Shame on me for not sending it back again.

“A Bar that does not know it is in Boston”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

I went into this bar on Dec 23, 2012 during a Pats game; I was amazed that all TVs over on my my side of the bar were tuned into the Bills game, when I asked about this and if it can be changed to the Pats game, I got a brusk response that this is a Bills bar; when they eventually turned one of two two monitors to the Pats game, a few loud mouth Bills fans stared complained that they did not have two screens to look for the same game; the bar tender and waiter asked them which one would they prefer; and they changed them again to meet the Bills fans needs, what is this all about; do they know that this bar is in Boston and in Pats land, what is up with the management of this bar or the lack of it. Should they just move the location to NY.

“Good Food, Great Game Atmosphere”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

I was there last Wed night when the Bruins were playing game 7 of their 1st round game. The place was standing room only FULL of Boston fans and it was awesome! The place can get really loud but there is always a good view of a TV (they have 30). I got tired of standing and the hostess sat me right away. The food options are plentiful and food is top shelf. The waitress was disappointed with my request for a food recommendation and wasn't very attentive but there were a thousand people in the joint...
I would highly recommend if you are looking for a sports bar with good food.
