As always everything was great. Fish and chips were crispy and light. Guinness onion soup is almost as delish as my homemade. Service and atmosphere is friendly and welcoming.

We had a great time! Emmet’s was energetic and boisterous, classically decorated for Christmas. Our waitress was excellent and very attentive. All the staff was great! I could listen to the accents all day! Hope to be back!

We went on Open Table to find a restaurant in the area with available reservations. Emmets had a table open in 15 minutes and we were only 10 minutes away so we booked the table. When we checked in with the hostess/server she said “why did you JUST make a reservation? It’s very annoying!”” It’s really not a question or comment that I was expecting. She was quiet rude. We were then given a 2 top in front of the handicapped restroom for 3 people. We requested a different range and were told none were available. As we were about to leave we saw a 4-top had opened. So we asked a different server if we could have it. She offered to clean the new table and seat us.

Went before a show at the Orpheum. Very convenient to the venue. Old, authentic style pub with great Irish fare. The service was excellent and the food was great. Very prompt delivery after ordering. Everyone raved about their plates. The nice part not feeling rushed to free up the table. We will definitely back.

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.
