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.

We made reservations for new years eve just bc it had decent reviews and it was close to where we would be spending the rest of our day in the city. We were seated immediately, server was extremely friendly and efficient. Food was authentic but they still had options for some picky eaters in our group. Overall great experience!

Good Irish Pub with expected menu focussed on some traditional favorites (Guinness stew, Shepard's pie, fish and chips) but the big surprise were the large and excellent fresh salads! Excellent selection of beers and cocktails. Location is very convenient to the Park "T" stop. Tables are very cramped and the music is very loud, so be aware. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Emmet's has become an annual get together for my wife and I and one of my godsons who attends BU. Take the train from RI & meet him there & look forward to it, the waitresses are the best and the hostess arranged a last minute reservation for us. Great atmosphere and who pours a better Guinness. God willing and the train still runs and we can walk the last mile, will be back again. PS, my godson has been back on a number of occasions with his BU buddies. And did I say, the food has always been great.

We made a reservation for a busy Saturday night on a busy holiday weekend and were seated promptly. Great dinner spot just before going to a show at nearby Orpheum Theatre. Authentic Irish neighborhood pub with friendly staff. A little on the noisy side and tables are small. But exactly what we expected for a pub atmosphere.

We booked for a 1pm lunch on Sunday, not realizing it was mainly a brunch menu (until 3pm on Sundays). We had some nice choices, though. It seems like the fish & Chips is the highlight of the menu. My daughter’s steak tips were a bit overdone & lacking in flavor. My Mum loved her fish & Chips. I had the “Rachel” sandwich, which was good, but not great. The ambiance is very nice, though-like your local back in the UK. Overall, a nice place, but needs a little improvement (flavoring of food). However, if your in the mood for fish & Chips alone, this is your place.

I was sincerely disappointed by the service level we received. Wasn't even at the restaurant for an hour before that waitress advised us to quickly leave or order dessert if we wanted because she had others to serve and was getting busy. Our drinks were served in broken glasses as well and when we brought it to the waitress attention she just rolled her eyes and took the drinks back and never gave us new or asked if we wanted something else after that and we were still charged for them.

I love going to Emmets - it's not expensive, is casual, is an authentic Irish pub, good beer. But I'm a vegetarian and made the mistake of ordering the stir fry. Who would order a vegetable stir fry in an Irish pub - my mistake! Service is very nice.

What a find! Great prices, great food, great service. Was a 3 minute walk from our hotel, reservation was easy, was seated right away. Food was so good and such a great price, especially considering it was Boston! Chocolate martini was phenomenal. My only compliant would be that there was nowhere to put my belongings as we were on a hightop table and there was no room for anything. A couple of hooks on the wall would have been a help. Would definitely return!

Our group of 8 friends -- all over 60-- went to Emmet's for a quick bite after a group meeting. We had a great and fun meal. Two of our friends have hearing issues and they said that they could hear very well in this setting. Service was fast. Menu extensive and fun. We'll go back there again for sure.

I was I. Town this weekend for a professional xo ferencelooking for aplace to eat. I found this review to be good and I’m so glad I followed my instincts and went here. The ambience was warm and welcoming. My reserved table was awaiting my arrival, and the menu was authentic! The band played wonderful Celtic music to seal the deal.
Outside of ireland, this is the most authentic Irish pub I have ever gone to! By all means get yourself there for a warm evening of delicious hospitality
