During a difficult week in
During a difficult week in Boston I spent lunch at Foley's - everyone was warm and comforting - I felt like I was in a safe harbor - the food was excellent - I had the Turkey Gobbler sandwich - total comfort food. With a side salad it was healthy but made me feel like I was home. Great restaurant.

Great Irish bar
We normally go to JJ Foley's for beer after work on a Friday. We decided to have a full dinner recently. The food was "OK", but the waitress was great and the beer was good. I would gladly eat there again, but don't expect gourmet dining. I've always loved the place, great Irish bar.

Absolutely the best!!!
I can't say enough about JJ Foley's. Our family of 12 has met here several times over the past few years, always on a Saturday for lunch. They have gone out of their way to make this a perfect environment for our reunions. The food is exceptional. We have all tried most everything, all delicious. The service is always impeccable.

J. J. Foley's Cafe is a traditional Irish pub where everyone is treated like family. The food and drinks are great, but the wonderful service is what makes this place stand out. The waitress was so friendly and engaging. The pub itself is quiet and relaxing with decor from articles and old street signs that bring it's history to life. Highly recommend stopping in at J. J. Foley's Cafe - you will not be disappointed!!!

Harried day slipped into Foley's
Harried day slipped into Foley's for a late lunch of a big green salad I choose to add salmon - it was delicious. The greens were fresh and tasty none of that iceberg lettuce stuff. and the balsamic dressing is very tasty. And the service was excellent. Looking forward to my next visit.

Friendly place with good food
Foley's is a neighborhood bar and pub (separate entrances) that's been tucked away in a remote spot on East Berkley in the South End forever. We stopped by for a quick bite before heading to a concert in the Theatre District, about a 10-minute walk. The Irish waitresses were super-friendly -- even held onto our doggie bag so we could pick it up on our way back from the concert -- and the food was great. I had the fish taco app, which was plenty big for a meal, and the truffle parmeson tater tots, which were tasty and addictive. My husband had the huge portion of fish and chips, also great. Don't be put off by the location and non-descript exterior -- this place was great, and we'll be back.

This is a nice spot with a good variety of beers on tap and very good food - particularly recommend the fish & chips and the steak tips.

Brunch at J J Foley's
We had brunch at JJ Foley's on Berkeley St in the South End this past Sunday and we were very pleased to say the least. We hadn't been there before but I had a feeling we would like it. Well, let me say it exceeded even those expectations. I had the duck hash and eggs (would go back just for that) and a Newcastle Brown Ale on draught and my wife had an omelet and a Bloody Mary which were very good as well. This was served to us with some lovely biscuits and honey-butter by a most delightful Irish waitress who made us feel like it was or 100th visit not our first. It was a bit quiet that morning but I can imagine the place getting quite lively when the crowds begins to roll in.

Duck Tacos and Corn Chowder
Great dinner met friends - tried Duck Tacos they were delicious. The Chicken and corn chowder was tasty, had a good broth that held the ingredients together without diluting the flavor. very enjoyable meal

real irish bar...
good curry chips, fish n chips, shepards pie, awesome beer on tap, wing and bar bites all very good.
Real small irish pub but with room to spread out.
True boston experience worth having

Great for our big group!
Had a bunch of family in town for Thanksgiving and needed a place to eat on the day after. The food was great, service was outstanding, and we had a great time all together. Thanks to Foley's youngest for the friendly and prompt service!

Sunday brunch - Irish Sausage
Sunday brunch - Irish Sausage and a veggie omelet - it was the best - lots of good coffee - the homemade biscuit w/ honey butter spread melted in my mouth. Can't wait to go back again. And Santa was there - who can resist whispering in his ear wishes for a wonderful year for all.
