Great food and a great atmosphere. I wasn't prepared for how thick the staffs' Irish accents were, but that is what made it such a fun experience! I would definately visit again.

Return trip here after a Dr.'s appointment. The second best thing about this place is the food, our server Rob is the 1st.

Nice Irish pub with some traditional Irish food but I went for the burger. Very good choice! Service wasn't great though for drink refills. Nice location near T stop at Brigham Circle.

I went here for lunch alone during my weekend shift from the hospital. The bar tender was nice and food was great. They are now doing credit card purchases only over 20$ so just a side note to bring cash if you are alone or a small party. ATM inside.

We came here after being at TGI Fridays and being totally disappointed. Rob was our server and he was fabulous, friendly and attentive and we loved his brogue. The food was a real surprise. We had the Irish Chili and we each had burgers. Fresh hot and delicious. I would HIGHLY recommend this place and if you have Rob as... More

Was lead here by a friend from Boston....obvious local crowd...most seemed to know each other....but I was treated well and all were friendly....the service was great...Guinness was good and cold.....had steak tips that were great, and plenty of food on the plate....definitely a place I will be returning to when in Boston......
