We popped in to the Whiskey priest when stopping over at the conference Center. The menu is pretty simple and that suits the bar, it's not complicated. Simple food, a good choice of drinks and simple service. I went for a burger and fries and can't complain, it was well cooked, tasty and arrived in good time. The only complaint... More

Had a pretty extensive drink menu. Appetizers and burgers were delicious. Good view of the water. Went for lunch on a Saturday (party of 8), and was able to be accommodated. Only negative was the women's bathroom was a little dirty and had a smell.

Drinks, snacks and a view! Right on the harbor. Fun place. Waitress was on it! Nachos were very good. We'd go again.

We stopped in this restaurant/bar for a quick lunch. The food was good, the view is typical of places that are located on a pier. We didn't see too many Irish items on the menu. It is a typical sports bar with alot of TV's. When walking by at night, this bar is hopping.

5 of us chose to eat in the Whiskey Priest after having a late, biggish lunch so not wanting a massive dinner. We chose our food carefully and weren't disappointed. There was a huge range of whiskey and the location right in the harbour was lovely. Our server was attentive.

It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon so the outside deck overlooking the harbor was an easy choice. Our server Elizabeth S was very friendly and attentive and was like hanging out with a great friend! We snacked on the Spicy Shrimp and the Chicken Bites. We had asked Elizabeth for her suggestions and they were both excellent! Thank you for... More

The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is great, and you have a beautiful view of the Seaport area. Need I say more? I celebrated my college graduation here in 2012 and recently went back to kill some time before my Harpoon Brewery Tour. Both times were fantastic!

I have been here multiple times, mainly for the location. Both times I've had some type of episode. The first was when a server forgot to put our order in before they stopped serving food altogether, we had to argue with the server and manager and still never received any food or compensation for our troubles. The second time we... More

Fun live music place, but terrible service. This is a tourist trap- very poor service during our night out in September 2016.
