This place is a typical pub with lots of beer options. Enough food choices for the four of us from club sandwich to fish and chips. Club sandwich was made with real turkey slices, a plus. Service was okay. Overall, I would rate the pub...More

After the dreariness of Mass Ave the cheery red exterior of The Field beckons, and bearing in mind that you aren't in Ireland, the pub you find inside is passably Irish in feel. As a vegetarian I didn't find a lot of choices on the...More

Decent Irish bar. Pretty crowded on a Thursday night but fun atmosphere. Note that it is cash only, so come prepared! They had Carlsberg on tap, which is my favorite and I rarely see in Boston so that was a treat! Would come back.

Stopped in while waiting for a show to start next door at Improv Boston. We sat out back on the patio with the college crowd. I like the elevated bench seats. It was a casual, laid back summer night. The Field has a nice unpretentious...More

A big bar with a friendly Galway owner (the Irish film with the same name was also filmed in the same county), lots of Galway and Cork signs and posters. Food is American but drinks include good Guinness and Murphy's. We went twice in our...More

Done up outside and in like an Irish pub. Guinness and Murphy's on tap, along with the usual suspects in bottles. A dart board, pool table and lots of soccer stuff. Pub grub. Nothing fancy. Like a thousand pubs in Dublin and Belfast. It would...More

Dropped in for lunch after a good hike from Harvard. Great Irish decor. I don't know how to describe the music - not Irish. Food was American - chilli cheese dog (very good) and tuna salad (very good). Good selection of domestic and imported beer....More
