I had dinner here one evening as it was close to my hotel. I had the Shepard's pie, which was large and good, but I was disappointed that there weren't more authentic Irish items on the menu. Great, old building which provided a nice atmosphere...More

Stopped in for a quick drink. Bartender was nice and engaged with all of her customers. I had a Smithwick's and my wife had a glass of sauvignon blanc. Both were excellent. Will be back to try apps/drinks or dinner.

I was greeted after fifteen minutes by the server. I was given my drink fifteen minutes after that. Another staff person delivered my food fifteen minutes after that. I had to signal the server after I finally spied her to get my check.

Ate here on a couple of evenings. Good food and service (althugh the serving staff could have been a bit more friendly). Reasonably priced too.

There are actually two sections to this restaurant, so if you can't find a table you like, go through to the other side. There is a hostess on each side. We found a table to watch the baseball playoff game; people behind us could watch...More

Yep, this place does what it says on the tin. Alright food, good service and plenty of beer. Even though it didn’t seem that busy we were told there were only hightop seats which we thought was a little odd, but apart from that the...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
