Thanksgiving day is not always a good day to dine out, however this place exceeded all expectations! Holly was our server and was so sweet and helpful. The steak tips , mashed potatoes and squash were done perfectly and all were hot! I will return soon!! Also, shoutout to Ann at the reception desk. Spoke with her regarding our reservation a week or so before and she was very nice and helpful. Excellent all around!

The food was excellent. A little pricey given the size of the portions and that a salad is not included with your meal.

I love the place. Sat at the bar. Cool vibe, live music. Bartenders are great.
Place was very busy. Both appetizers and entrees were very much on the cool side and would have been much more enjoyable if they were served hot. Asked for the chicken wings to be well done/crisp and they were not, possibly even undercooked.

There was a “misunderstanding” with the reservation our table was given rona group of people standing at the bar so a 6:30 reservation turned into a 7 reservation, the wait staff was rude, the food was decent minus the fact that several of the orders were or missing something. I try not to complain but when the staff had an attitude like we did something wrong then I feel like I need to say something, places are host staffed I appreciate everyone who continues to show up and work and try to do a good job but this night was just a disaster. The music was so loud we couldn’t hear anyone at our very crammed tables.

My significant other and I were in town for whale watching. We picked this place because I love a good Irish pub! My chicken pot pie did not disappoint. The corned beef was tough and dried out. And for the price it was not worth what he was served. There were several large parties in the same room which we were in as well resulting in noise.

Good time at the Emerald Rose, well established restaurant/ bar. Only knock is that the staff should have more training when dealing with allergies. Food and service was good. I would go back again.

We were traveling through Billerica and made a dinner reservation on Saturday night. We were seated right away, great waitress had burgers and fries, very tasty and fresh. My husband forgot his credit card and they called within minutes to let us know! (Luckily they had phone number from reservation)

First time to Emerald Rose, every aspect was terrific. The food was delicious, we had the Irish egg rolls, Baked Haddock dinner with rice and broccoli (absolutely delicious). The second entree was the Meat Loaf dinner with mashed potatoes and broccoli (superb). For dessert, we had the brownie ice cream sundae(tasty Irish chocolate ice cream), whipped cream and hot fudge sauce. Wonderful dessert. Beverages were also delicious. A nice restaurant with wonderful service, terrific food and fairly priced. Recommended to all and we will definitely return.
