Located in the heart of Jamaica Plain, The Galway House is practically an institution. A combination pub and restaurant, it is also family friendly- and almost always busy. They are justly famous for their burgers but have an extensive menu of mostly comfort food. It...More

OMG! Who knew; not me! My daughter suggested we try it even though there were several other restaurants in the immediate area that we love. The seafood platter was one of the best I have ever had. Much better than Legal's! I am going back....More

I usually eat here quite often and I expect the service to be slow, but last weekend I actually saw a black woman get violently pushed out of the restaurant by one of the white waitresses. It was so shocking and violent that I'm still...More

Classic Irish bar. Always busy on the times that we visited Boston and stayed in JP, could barely get a seat at the bar. Never tried the food but the beers were well priced for the states and the service was good. Many locals come...More

Jamaica Plain
This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to
