This bar/restaurant is a fantastic place to eat. The menu offers choices on the Irish side of fare, and as my autistic son said, it made his stomach comforting! The prices are fair too.

The food was very good and the service was great. The fish and chips were piping hot and had great flavor. It has an excellent dark Irish pub atmosphere.

We thoroughly enjoyed stopping here for lunch. The food was delicious. The staff was very friendly. We wish we could have stayed to listen to the live music.

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
