Food was average but the service was horrible. Sat for about 10 minutes before a waitress came over and took my drink and food order. Then another waitress brought the food. Then I saw neither of them for 30 minutes...definitely won't be going back.

Emmets was our first stop before we checked into our VRBO. The food was great - large, large portions. You can share with another adult. The 3 of us shared shepherd's pie and the bangers & mash. Excellent. Would highly recommend.

We were a group of five ladies enjoying Boston for the day as we were visiting New England from Texas. We found Emmets Irish Pub comfortable and relaxing with good food and drinks.

Went there as an out of town tourist. Great service and delicious food. It casual and not ridiculously loud. You can have conversations with friends easily.

If you walk the Freedom Trail at the Common around lunchtime, stop in here. Good food, good service, good music. 2 beers, a Reuben, & fish ‘n chips = $39. A bit dark in the back, so ask for window seat.

We stopped for a Guinness and dinner. The taste of iraland was a good size portion. If they had live Irish music it would have made it an better they just had some music on.

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
