We ate here before heading back home and I like the service when told we were crunch for time. I had the Southwestern Salad and it was DELICIOUS. I didn't even need to use the ranch dressing that was on the side.

We ordered an appetizer to share for dinner and it was very filling. They offer a full menu of American or Americanized foods. Our server suggested rum punch and it was awesome. Very convenient location.

We had the beef stew - yummy - and a special barbecue plate. The food and drinks were good. A little on the noisy side but typical pub atmosphere.

Enjoyed a pint (or two) and some of the best clam chowder. My husband had the chicken salad and found it excellent! Atmosphere was what we were looking for in an Irish pub. Great service and attentive staff.

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
