We went to O'Learys twice during a recent vist to Boston as it was close to our accomodations. Both times the staff were pleasant and accomodating. The service was fast with generous portions, reasonable price and value for money.

Just a block away is a number of eateries and it was suggested to us by the host where we stayed to head to O'Leary's. We were not disappointed.

We went there two times, the first just to drink and the second to eat. Food is very good and at very reasonable prices for Boston standards. The waitress is really nice and the atmosphere was great, with live American music!

Good, basic food and drinks. Lively and affordable; nice place to take out of town guests. Occasionally they have live music in the evenings.

This great little Irish bar and restaurant is ideally located on the Green line on Beacon Street. Great atmosphere generated by friendly staff. Over a few visits I had "tater skins", chicken wings, meatloaf dinner and my all time favorite meal ever, the beef stew. It is a nice thick stew with ample beef, lots of veggies and a big... More

Love this place. The food is great, and its pretty quiet and comfortable at lunchtime. The beef stew is fabulous (and gluten free.) The owner is very friendly and helpful and after only a couple of visits, you're welcomed as a regular!
