We ordered the Guinness onion soup, it’s was delicious. We also ordered fish & chips. It was ok but we were disappointed. My wife order was not presentable. Her fish portion was visually half smaller than mine and also it was burned. The cook should have noticed it and or at least the server before bringing it to us.

Great food, for a great price. I actually preferred the Emmet’s Ale over the Guinness on tap. The Shepherds Pie and Guinness Stew were outstanding. Go in prepared for some noise. Reservations are easy to arrange online.

Atmosphere here is fantastic and feels very authentic when they have live music happening on Wednesdays. Food is unfortunately a bit bland on flavor, could use more spicing.

Ambiance and decor was appropriate for an Irish pub.
We ate about 22:30 on a Friday.
I liked the wood decor/furnishings of the pub, though some people might not like the darker wood colors of the pub.
Food was very good. Prices were reasonable. (Similar to Applebee's)
Disappointed that there was only one Irish beer (Guinness) available in an Irish pub.
Playing 80's music (louder than I prefer, but not too loud) in background.

I’ve been to several pubs in Ireland and Emmet’s was a fun authentic reminder. Great Guinness and delicious food.

My friends and I went here on a Wednesday night. They had live Irish music that didn't drown out our conversation and the food was delicious. Emmet's topped our experience off with fantastic, attentive service and affordable prices. We'll definitely be back!

Perfect little spot for out of towners to get a "pub feel" in Boston. Food was excellent. We were seated at the front window with the window open. Ambiance was wonderful.

Great authentic Irish Pub. Food music and ambiance felt like we were in Ireland. It filled up fast when we were there so you know it must be a local favorite.
Will definitely go again next time we’re in Boston!

Authentic Irish pub fare in a small venue reminiscent of many such establishments on the Emerald Isle. Very welcoming atmosphere, the cod was flaky, moist and flavorful, and fate was very reasonable. A real neighborhood gem conveniently located.

We went for a family lunch after being sworn in by the Governor. The waitresses were exceptional. The food was ordinary. I mean how can you mess up a hamburger. They figured out how

Great introduction to Boston. Was a relief to find a solid Irish pub for our first meal upon arrival. My salmon was excellent and hubby had fish and chips. Kids meals were just right and we thought it was a great value all around too. Glad we had a reservation as this place was hopping on a Thursday night.

This was a very mediocre restaurant. We came here after our original Valentine’s Day restaurant reservation got messed up. I think this would be a great place for drinks but the food was very mediocre. It is relatively inexpensive for Boston which is a good thing.

Went on a weekday and the noise level was pretty decent. Didn't have to yell to talk to person sitting across from me. Even on a weekday, the place got filled by about 6:30ish.
