I usually eat here quite often and I expect the service to be slow, but last weekend I actually saw a black woman get violently pushed out of the restaurant by one of the white waitresses. It was so shocking and violent that I'm still...More

This is not a fancy place by any means, but for many JP residents it is the go-to place for comfort food. Want a steak? Go to Galway House. Want fried clams? Go to Galway House. Want fried fish? Go to Galway House. We haven’t...More

If you like the basics done right, this is the place. The menu has limited offerings, and no surprises, but the results are plain to see: ample portions of very well done basics. The specials offer a little more variety. The prices are very reasonable,...More

Classic Irish bar. Always busy on the times that we visited Boston and stayed in JP, could barely get a seat at the bar. Never tried the food but the beers were well priced for the states and the service was good. Many locals come...More

Great bartender, ok food selection if you care about food. If you don't care what you eat in terms of high quality but want quantity, this is the place for you. LOTS of local barflies. Kinda of fun once in a while.

My Husband and I came here with our son for dinner last week and it is the type of place we love. No frills, delicious food, large portions and a varied draft beer list with some hard to find beers on tap. Seafood platter and...More

You can't beat the Galway House for the price, food and the portions. If you're in JP, it's a must! I highly recommend the Fisherman's Platter or if you're in the mood for a steak, the Montreal Ribeye. The onion rings are great too thin,...More

This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to
