The title is an understatement in this case. O'Leary's is AWESOME! Was recommended by Dylan at Beacon Inn and only one block from Inn! Boston got hit with a blizzard so it was a cold walk -- but only one block away and right on the green line! Grainne O'Leary was Lovely! A great bartender, personable and a perfect Guinness... More

First off, the food was fantastic. The fish and chips were delicious and the service was out of this world. The beer was, of course, exceptional. On another note, Angus went above and beyond and truly made me feel welcomed to Boston. I am so happy to have stumbled on this pub, and I will certainly be back as soon... More

We went to O'Learys twice during a recent vist to Boston as it was close to our accomodations. Both times the staff were pleasant and accomodating. The service was fast with generous portions, reasonable price and value for money.

Just a block away is a number of eateries and it was suggested to us by the host where we stayed to head to O'Leary's. We were not disappointed. Comfortable, it is family owned business, great hospitality, first night we each had a... More

We went there two times, the first just to drink and the second to eat. Food is very good and at very reasonable prices for Boston standards. The waitress is really nice and the atmosphere was great, with live American music!

Good, basic food and drinks. Lively and affordable; nice place to take out of town guests. Occasionally they have live music in the evenings.

This great little Irish bar and restaurant is ideally located on the Green line on Beacon Street. Great atmosphere generated by friendly staff. Over a few visits I had "tater skins", chicken wings, meatloaf dinner and my all time favorite meal ever, the beef stew. It is a nice thick stew with ample beef, lots of veggies and a big... More
