I enjoyed my meal here but was quite surprised that they had NO option for non-alcoholic beer. Most places these days have two because it's the fastest growing market in terms of current sales in liquor stores.

I hope they get up to speed and follow the trend.

Took over 45 minutes to get a chicken pot pie. There pot pie itself was ok. Warm, not hot, creamy filling with a puff pastry round on top.

This is very much a pub and much of what you would expect it to be. A good place to drink a pint and have some shepherd's pie but don't get too exotic. A corned beef hash was thickly sliced deli-style corned beef with standard pub potatoes. Hollandaise Sauce was a mix, not house-made. Bloody Mary mix was out of the container and no tomato juice to style it your way. Service was very pleasant but inattentive. Shepherd's pie was quite nice. Keep it simple with the food and enjoy the handsome, pubby atmosphere and don't expect too much in the way of culinary finesse and you'll be fine.

A surprisingly hidden gem on the outskirts of Beacon Hill. Had a reservation for 6:30, was seated, ordered drinks and dinner, and dined with ample time to make an 8:00 concert nearby. Would definitely return....and take OpenTable with us.

Our experience at Emmet’s was very enjoyable. My husband and I shared a Reuben and fries which was plenty for two. We had good service and the waitress was very pleasant and helpful. We will definitely come back.

The pub is quaint and in a good location. The food was really good, especially the Shepherds Pie and the Salmon Goat Cheese salad. We had two servers. One was fine but the other was not pleasant and quickly scooped up our food and drinks without asking if we were done or wanted anything else. However, if I lived locally, I’d go back and would recommend to others.

I usually have great service when I visit. This time, not so much. My server was inattentive. She walked by, looked directly at my empty drink glass, and kept walking. I literally yelled for her (it was LOUD in the bar) and she didn't stop. It took over 5 minutes before I could find a different server to grab another drink. She was a nice lady with glasses. Even though I wasn't her table, she checked in on me more than my actual server the rest of the night. My food came out luke warm and cold in some parts. I couldn't even find my server to say anything, so I began eating. After about 8 mins or so she walked around and I motioned to her. My veggie burger didn't have the red peppers as listed on the menu. "I'll check on that." A little while later she came back saying they were out, apologized, and before I could respond, she walked away again. I know places are understaffed, and they were busy, but this woman seemed like she was just going through the motions and I was somewhat of an inconvenience at times. It was disappointing. The next time I visit, I hope I have the lady with glasses as my server, or one of the other ladies that have been there in the past.

The food was good. Our service was terrible. We didn’t get our drinks (water) until after our food was delivered. Drinks were never refilled. Had to flag down a server to get our check. Tables were too close together, couldn’t sit comfortably.
