For the first time ever I was disappointed by my sandwich which was the Portobbello Sandwich. For $16.00 the sandwich consisted of one mushroom slice, one piece of lettuce and a thin slice of onion. The bun was fine. It was not filling or satisfying. It’s important to know that if you raise prices, do not compromise on portions or quality. THAT IS HOW RESTAURANTS GO OUT OF BUSINESS!!

The Emerald Rose has always been top-notch. Tonight was an off night. Glass of wine was from a bottle that had probably been open too long. Issue fixed. Was told that on of the entrees ordered had run out, was later told that it was still available. No big deal. One of our party, who is not particularly picky, ordered fish and chips and sent it back twice, ultimately only eating French fries. Very unusual. The kitchen was very slow in general. It wasn’t perfect, but the staff made every effort to rectify our issues. Recommended.

Food was not cooked to order. Ordered a cheeseburger with bacon, medium. Cheeseburger came out over cooked with no bacon. Did not ask for another burger, because it was busy and they were short staffed. We go out a lot and we understand the times and the need for more staff.

Varied menu, great food, a really nice spot. The bar area is more lively so chose your seats carefully - the dining room is quiet and more reserved.

We will be back.

Our waitress came to the table and brought our beverages and it was almost a half hour hour later before she came back to take our order. We heard someone else complaining too. We weren't very impressed and the prices went way up. It has changed since Gary and Trish left. Sorry to say, I'm not sure we will be back any time soon.

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!

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.

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)
