We walked by this place a few times and finally decided to give it a try. So glad we did. There is a lot to choose from on the menu. I had the sliders - 3 mini cheeseburgers - they were really good. Came with a good helping of fries but the sliders was so filling I only had 2... More

Went looking for lobster rolls and tried Rosie's. Don't know if this was typical but the rolls were loaded with way too much Mayo on the meat.

One of the last sort of neighborhood bars. Casual bar atmosphere, friendly staff, good food, and some cheap beer. My friends loved it. I always have.

This place had a feel of a local pub, but the food was really good. I got the Motherload burger, which was bigger than my head. The quality was really good. Others got salads, soup, and sandwiches. Everyone really liked their meals. It had a really nice feel, as the staff was friendly and quick.

Met some friends here. Only been here a few times. Had a wonderful burger, and a great drink. It's a small place. Kind of a starter place where you meet up with your friends before you start bar crawling around Old Port. Good food, great drinks.

This is a bar- restaurant in a tourist area that has a locals feel to it. The food and drinks (dinner) was moderately priced and pretty good. Not a huge menu, but a reasonable choice for a place of its size.

We needed a cold beer after a long, humid walk in the city. Rosie's was recommended to us by a local man. It's unpretentious and well priced, especially for happy hour if you don't care about craft beer. Friendly barkeeps/waitresses. The nachos were a disappointment, though: The cheese was meager and the beans nonexistent.

Great quaint little pub. Fair amount of seating, large bar. Friendly staff. Great atmosphere. Oh and yes, the one dollar Millers. Win.

Very good! Almost left but glad we stayed! Good service and atmosphere. Not fancy but excellent food. Try the lobster bisque and you will be back!

We walked in for lunch and almost walked out. It is definitely a bar and not a glitzy one. However, we had a really good lunch - both the burger and veggie burger were quite tasty. The sub salad for fries was very good. I am a wine drinker so I wouldn't say this would be the place for wine... More
