Reviewed 28 March 2014

We were refused entry the first night as no ID, which given we were both 44 was funny, but persevered and two day we were in! Patrick the lovely manager then clearly deduced that we needed looked after and for the rest of the week he did a great job keeping the irish girls out of trouble lol. Well he allowed a certain amount of trouble but then was a great protector when needed!! Loved the bar, the staff and the dukebox. Hope to visit again soon xx

Enjoying a $3 pint and great pizza that I brought over from the next door "New York Pizza" place. Old school dive bar.

Most definitely a dive bar ... But what a good time. We were staying nearby and found this bar within walking distance of our hotel. We were staying in Boston for a couple of nights and went back the second night. The second night, we were treated like regulars that had been going there for years. The bartenders were awesome, especially Pat... The guys checking ID's at the door were personable and friendly. Great place to have a few drinks and meet people. But beware, if you come in with an attitude that you're better than anyone in the place, the bartenders will bring you back to reality... And what fun that was to witness. Hearty liquor pours in the mixed drinks is an understatement. Cash Only - There is an ATM machine in the bar.

Well, yea, as many said, kind of an old-time bar - lots of crap on the walls, old weathered bar, etc. TV's with sports on all over the place (sports bar) I don't get the "cheap drinks" thing though. I mean, $5.75 for an Octoberfest IPA ? (+tip). Went on the night it was "usually GAY" - per other reviews -, a Sunday night. Sorry, don't get that either. Very few people in the place (8:30 PM), mostly B/G couples or small 4-somes (B/G). Definitely NOT a feel of a Gay Bar. The bartender was a very friendly nice guy. Had the 1 beer and left.
