First time here and decided to come with friends for St. Patrick's Day. We mainly came for drinks but ended up ordering food too. They had some festive specials, like corned beef and several Irish whiskeys. My group was more in the mood for some mixed drinks which they didn't offer on the menu (note: they may charge an up-charge for doing this) and they happily accommodated for us. Food wise, we tried the poutine, corned beef sliders and the truffle fries. The poutine was good (and is a regular menu item), but the others were so-so - typical bar food. Nice relaxing atmosphere and more spacious than I was expecting.

We were to meet up with friends and they chose this place...it was their new favorite hang out! We were NOT disappointed in the least. We were greated warmly when we entered and when we explained that we were meeting friends we were directed to the bar...we mistakenly seated ourselves at a table which is usually reserved for the dinner crowd but was assure by Beth that it was totally ok and we could wait for friends, have drinks and have dinner there as well.
The atmosphere is upbeat and seems good for all occasions! Family dinners, celebrations and just fun times. Drinks were GREAT and the food was delicious!!! Will definitely return when we're in the area!

We got in for the event but we were passing for the dinner and we were immediately impressed .The service was very friendly and attentive to details. A restaurant that we can advise. Good job.

Located close to the BU campus it is a good college bar that gets crowded late. Friendly staff. I visited while attending a conference at BU and although I was probably the oldest in the place, I was comfortable. The food was typical but good bar food. The Pretzel with Beer Sauce is excellent!
