MJ O'Connors is your typical pub. Perfect for beer and dinner. The service is efficient and the atmosphere is lively. Most options on the menu look good. While the food seems fresh and is, when I ordered chilli it came out cold. Everything else was...More

No. Just no. We went here because we got a coupon from the Boston Plaza Hotel and the restaurant was more or less next door. Waited at front for 10 minutes for someone to even inquire as to why we were standing there! Waitress seemingly...More

Nice friendly sports bar under our hotel. Good service and advice about the city from the bar staff. Not one of the livelier Boston bars but nice for a quiet drink or food during the day.

First of all-the good: cool pub with good food. Our party had the Rueben, the pork sliders, chicken sandwich, and the cheeseburger. It was all very good. The bad: our waitress was beyond rude. I’m not sure I’ve ever encountered this level of hostility in...More

Nice spot to watch the game and grab a pint with friends. We did manage to get an awkward seat where we weren’t served by the waitstaff or the bartender, requiring a trip to stand and wait to be served. Which takes awhile when ordering...More

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
