Diner Reviews
  • "Our party of four made our dinner reservation for 7 pm. While waiting in the lobby to be seated, we watched several large, noisy groups enter the dining room. When we were finally seated at 7:35, the noise level in the dining room was quite high. The manager graciously brought a generous assortment of free appetizers and apologized for our wait. Our waitress was also attentive, and the food was very good. This restaurant is not the place for a quiet, intimate dinner, however. The dining room was so loud, that we seriously considered moving to the bar area, which was much quieter!"

  • "While my haddock was delicious as usual, the service was lacking. My salad was late to come out and before I was done, my meal arrived. I HATE when that happens. I had to ask for bread and was informed that was the new policy. Ok, but let me know that. I have been here several times and did not have to ask before. My other issue is with the wine glasses. Please get real red wine glasses. The glasses currently being used are way tooo small."

  • "My family and I went to the Emerald Rose in Billerica on 03-16-14 to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. We've dined at the Emerald Rose before so we know the quality of the food and drink. Being an Irish restaurant, it was perfect for St. Patrick's day festivities, even a day early. Our party of 5 enjoyed the Bacon Cheddar soup, which was thick, creamy and delicious! Corned Beef sandwiches, the traditional boiled Corned Beef dinner and a chicken dish were and enjoyed! Desserts ordered were, Irish Bread Pudding, which was amazing and a Brownie Sundae. We could hear the band in the bar section but it wasn't overpowering. Giving all the patrons green beads was a nice touch as well! A great time was had by all!"

  • "My husband and I tried this place for the first time on a Saturday night. We wish we would have had a better experience. The food was quite good. The service was not. We were put in a tiny booth right behind the hostess stand. The table was annoying because there was constant foot traffic with tables being seated and our conversation was always distracted. Our waitress could hardly be bothered by us at the beginning of the meal. It took from the time we ordered 15 minutes to get our drinks and 40 minutes to get our appetizer. Tables that sat down after us were getting much more quick and attentive service. If we go back here we would get a seat at the bar and dine there. The bartenders seemed friendly and attentive."

  • "Great menu tasty options With reservation still had to wait 15 min Waitress could have been more attentive but overall great dinner It was busy which is probably why waitress had trouble being attentive"

  • "I've been to the Emerald Rose many times with family and friends. They have a nice varied menu, their prices are terrific. A great meal at an affordable price. The best thing is their bread basket with the cinnamon butter, very yummy! The chicken pot pie is one of my favorites, it's delicious, has a tasty filling and a homemade crust. Perfect for the winter! In the summer, their lobster roll is one of the best around. It really is a neighborhood gem. I've always had meals on the restaurant side, it's quite cozy. The bar side is always hopping and a little more noisy, so the Emerald Rose can accommodate any type of dining experience you are looking for."

  • "The friend who treated me to dinner was very impressed with her entrée--the prime rib. And she knows food! We had to take our dessert to go but enjoyed it tremendously later that evening--the Irish cream cheesecake. So good job. Thanks very much."

  • "Made a reservation, was seated on time, service was outstanding, food was very good, hot and served timely even though it was very busy. Manager came and checked on how the meal and service was and the waitress gave my wife a rose at the end of the meal. Overall a great dining night."

  • "Went here on a Sunday for lunch and I can't believe how bad the service was. It took 15mins just to get drinks never mind the endless wait for food, which was nothing special. I will not be returning"

  • "The menu had a great selection and the food portions were a good size. This place isn't a for romantic quiet night because the restaurant is open and it doesn't offer private seating. Great place to take family members."

  • "The food here was fantastic - rich but not overly so. My guest and I both very much enjoyed it. It was nice ambiance and great for conversation. The only unfortunate part was that our server hadn't been informed that we were her table, so if i hadn't said something, we never would have gotten service. Even after our server came to the table, it did take a long time between visits. I wasn't sure if they were low on staff that night or just took a little longer. I would definitely recommend, but be prepared for a leisurely dinner."

  • "Comfortable atmosphere, tasty food, friendly staff, and great drink/beer menu. Just what my husband and I were looking for with our 3 year old daughter. Menu choices were more on the comfort food side without being heavy or greasy, and they had a decent beer list. Despite having a crowded bar with live music on one side the dining room was pleasantly quiet and cosy. The bar side looked fun though, maybe another time when it's not a family night :) will definitely be returning."

  • "Notable Beer list; we had excellent meals - emerald rose salad with lobster and the lamb chop special; we added this restaurant as one we will visit again. We like the the the music and bar on Saturdays, this was the first visit for dinner."

  • "It appeared that the restaurant needed another wait person because our waitress was very preoccupied and left us feeling either rushed giving our order or forgotten after a request. She took our appetizer order without the entree and then rushed off after the dessert order leaving one person in our party in the process of ordering a dessert for her son. The wait person was cordial, but service was definitely not up to par especially since a 20% service charge was added to our bill."

  • "Spent new year's eve at this restaurant and it was very good. The wait was minimal, the food and drinks were very good and our waitress was spot on. This restaurant is close to our home, another plus. It consistently provides quality food and service."

  • "A group of friends and i were here for new years and had an amazing time. First of all was the service provided by our waitress who was very friendly and knowledgeable and even had the table laughing. The food was perfect and the drink selection was impressive and very fairly priced. I would definitely come back and recommend this place to friends and family."

  • "We have been here 4 times....food is good, never great....they could easily improve on little things that old make them better. Service needs to improve, all 4 times service at best has been ok. Lack of check backs in a timely manner is my pet peeve, as well as asking if you need change."

  • "I was amazed with the responsiveness and care the staff took with every aspect of my stay. I was attending for a conference and having two night stay. The events coordinator was sensitive to our every need, even allowed us to set up 90 minutes early and delivered meals to individuals with gluten sensitivities. The front desk stored bags, would not take a tip, always responded with a smile and a great attitude, and were always available. I would recommend this hotel to groups and look forward to my next stay."

  • "We always enjoy the Emerald Rose...it is a nice Irish Pub in the middle of the suburbs. The food is always well prepared, the service is always top notch. This Saturday it seemed a bit quiet, usually on weekends you wait for a table. My husband ordered the steak tips and was well pleased, my daughter and I had salad which was crisp and fresh. We will be back."
