Nothing wrong with food and prices but nothing special. Nice layout and staff give this Irish style pub a good feel and comfort level.

Good food, great tap beer menu at affordable prices, now Waterfords Restaurant - formerly the Irish Ale House. If you are looking for a value meal but at a place other than a chain restaurant, Waterfords, on the Dedham - West Roxbury line just off of the VFW Parkway is a good choice. Service was fast and attentive, most of... More

We booked the small room with fireplace for a breakfast after my father-in-laws funeral. I thought the breakfast was very good and they kept replenishing. Cost was very reasonable. My only complaint was I was told the children, (4) 3 year olds and (1) 2 year old wouldn't be charged. My husband paid and I didn't realize until we got... More

Waterford takes over from Irish Ale House, a staple in Dedham for many yrs, with a great location just over the Boston line. There are no other genuine Irish pubs nearby. There is a nice but plain dining room with a central convivial bar. The menu is what you expect at an Irish pub. The staff is very eager to... More

We had similar impressions of Waterford's as the previous reviewer, only we went in late October 2014, several months later. Maybe it's all renovated now, but it still seemed a bit unfinished, or "in progress". I was last there when it was the Alehouse (Irish Pub) so I was curious to see how it was different. First, the main dining... More

The name change did not improve anything I'm afraid. The interior has been updated and looked new (extensive renovations were supposedly done) but the dining area has been segregated from the bar to such an extent that you are not really in the establishment. The entrance area was unoccupied so we had to go looking for assistance when we arrived.... More

We visited this restaurant for the first time in several years with a group of friends in an early celebration of St. Patrick's Day and had a very enjoyable time. They have a somewhat limited menu that hits all the bases. We enjoyed the shepherds pie, the corned beef & cabbage and the broiled scrod. All were well prepared and... More

I am always excited when I see an Irish themed restaurant. My friend and I had actually just pulled off the highway due to traffic when he spotted the Alehouse. It didn't look busy so we had to stop and sample some of their fare. The menu had a lot of great items. The prices were also nice. We ended... More
