The Green Dragon Tavern has a long and rich history, playing an important part in the freedom of Boston during the War of Independence. Established in 1654 The Green Dragon was a favorite haunt of Paul Revere (Whom we consider a close Neighbor) and John Hancock (who’s brother lived next door!). Indeed, as has been ratified by Daniel Webster – the famous historian, that it was in the Green Dragon that the plans for the invasion of Lexington and Concorde were overheard thus starting the famous ride of Paul Revere. Today The Green Dragon still plays host to a diverse and colorful clientele, though the practice of eavesdropping has long since stopped! ! With a full Lunch and Dinner Menu it is a popular eatery with visitors to Boston who enjoy dining in a working piece of History! With a full array of Irish-American fare and a wide of choice of Traditional New England Seafood dishes The Green Dragon offers a wide choice for even the most decerning palette.

When we got there they said they ‘never check’ OpenTable and was extremely annoyed when I showed them the reservation I made on the app. They said with a party our size and since they were unprepared we’d have to wait so we took separate tables. Not once did they apologize for OUR inconvenience. it’s not our fault they don’t check the app...why even have this service available? The guy was EXTREMELY ignorant. Our server never asked if we needed refills or anything else-we had to flag her down every time. The place was small and she would walk by our tables but not stop to check on us. Bathrooms were dirty, neither locks worked in the stalls.

Here's why: After entering and looking for a hostess, I went to the bar and was quickly served by the bartender who said we could sit anywhere we wished - we didn't need a reservation. OK, we sat at at table, kept an eye out for a table waiter but never saw one - not just didn't we have one come by our table - we didn't see anyone being served. We spotted a stack of menus which we studied but the selection on the menu was very limited - no where near the selection in the menu that appears on the Open Table website. Out of the 50+ patrons (pretty crowded with folks enjoying their libations - it's a rather small pub), we spotted only one patron who had a little food on his table. We finished our drinks, closed the tab and left. It was a Monday evening about 7 PM. Our unusual experience did not match the various reviews on Open Table.

The food is a step up (in both quality, delivery and prices) to the other "historic" place next door, but you won't mistake it for gourmet. It's decent pub food prepared reasonably well (although the fish and chips probably wouldn't inspire a revolution, except maybe against soggy breading...). Vibe was fun, beer was cold and the staff nice.

Very nice to see the tavern is still in operation. The team was friendly and attentive. I recommend the Sheppard's Pie and for starters the Chili.

My daughter had wanted to go there because of it was historical value. The entire restaurant smelled beer. If going out for night drinking with adults probably fantastic. If you are traveling with kids might want to consider a different restaurant.

Also, how do you run outta food at 530p? The kids meal came out very dry and my French onion soup was almost cold. No vegetarian options really.

Our server was awesome and the food was outstanding, the highlight of our trip to Boston, I highly recommend it! FYI it is a tavern so the noise level can get up there, but we would go back in a heartbeat!

I took my girlfriend for her birthday upon request because she is a big history buff. Calamari was over cooked, rubbery, and needed salt. I got a burger, also overcooked. My girlfriend got the Shepards pie and enjoyed it. Staff was nice and gave us a great table overlooking the street. Overall, fun time, but was expecting better food.

It was like she knew that we were Australian and that we would tip well because we don't like to be though of cheap skates. This is basicly true. I would not recomend to other australians looking for a bar in the city. Surely Boston can do better.

Our luck wasn't with us this particular evening though. There was no one to seat you - one waitress for the entire place. She did a great job considering! However, the kitchen forgot our order to start. Then when we did finally get our food, my steak tips were over cooked. We had already waited quite a while, so I didn't send it back for fear of how much longer it would take. You really don't need a reservation for this place. I am sure it's a great pit stop for lunch or dinner when they are fully staffed.
