Pub atmosphere. Excellent service, there when you needed her, not when you didn't. Curry chips (fries with curry dip) was good, pretzel and beer cheese also good. Clam chowder was big hit, Guinness cheese and onion soup also a hit. Entrees: salad, pizza/flatbread, shepherds pie, and Corn beef sandwich were average.
I would eat there again if we were locals. The overall ambience and service more than made up for the average tasting entrées. Price was a little high also but I think that's the case for most of the restaurants in the Boston area. My guess is this will be an awesome place to be to watch a game.

I have been to the restaurant many times before. The food has always been excellent; unfortunately, this time one of my friends steak tips were not cooked properly. We had to wait quite a long time for her meal to come out again. This was a little difficult as we happen to be on a lunch hour.

The waitress came to the rescue and to make up for the delay, took the meal off the menu and offered us some desserts which were delicious. We left the waitress a good tip and thanked her very much. This situation would no preclude us from returning to the restaurant again.

We were in Boston from out of town and were celebrating running in the Boston Marathon!! We had invited family and friends and found out late that they were all coming. Being Easter Sunday and not familiar with restaurant options in the area, we had a recommendation for this restaurant. We were able to make a reservation for a large group and had a wonderful time!! Service was great and the food was good quality. We had a great space and were not rushed. Thank you SO much!!

My family and I went out to eat after watching "Blink" at Fanueil Hall for the Christmas holiday. We chose Ned Divine's because of its location and online reviews. When I checked in with the hostess at our reserved time, she seemed confused and not ready for our party. After some shuffling about, our party of 12 was seated at a cozy high-top booth that was perfect for a wintery night. Our large party ordered many of the dishes that were recommended in online reviews--the chowder, fish and chips and shepherd pie. ALL of them were outstanding!! All agreed that the food was worth returning for. Service was somewhat slow, but we noticed that the waitress was alone and working hard to meet the needs of several tables. At the end of our visit, the hostess did apologize for the confusion at the beginning, which I appreciated. We will definitely return to Ned Divine's!

Let's begin with how it was 90 degrees in Boston on the day of our visit. Also, very high humidity. Ned Devine's had no A/C. Or if they did have A/C, and it was running, the net effect was that it made no difference. We may as well have been dining outside, as inside. The quality of the food ordered by myself, my wife, and our friends, was all over the map. My chowdah was very good. My wife's veggie burger had the consistency of playdough, and tasted...bad. One friend had fish and chips and said it was pretty good, but his wife's lobster roll was so poor she at very little of it. The nine year old with our group ordered chicken fingers and fries. She said she couldn't eat either because they were both too greasy for her. Two other friends ordered the same dish. One was quite good. The other was too greasy. Finally, the service was spotty, at best, and both my pint of cider, and my wife's, were served at room temperature. Not cold at all. We'll not be returning to Ned Devine's anytime in the future.

a glass of wine, two microbrews, lemonaide
lobster baked mac & cheese, a fish & chips platter
Brownie dessert

Total before tip: $75.

The portion size was fine and the food was brought to the table hot I was not overly impressed.
The elbow macaroni was way overcooked, which is not uncommon, but for $28 you'd think they'd get it right.

The pints of IPA were 7.50 - that's a price that will sober you up...

Day after Thanksgiving. Expected enthusiastic and pleasant lunch. We arrived 30 min early for our reservation, went to bar to wait. Bartender barely spoke. We're seated about 5 min after reservation time. Then waited. And waited. 15 min before we asked hostess to find waitress. 20 min before drink orders taken. I saw actress bring drinks to bar. Watched barman do nothing with our order for at least 10-15 min. 30 min before drinks appeared. 55 min before lunch appeared. I never got chowder I ordered. Burger was almost well done. I ordered it medium rare. Watched tables near us come and go. My husband walked out and sat outside until we were done he was so mad.

I've worked as waitstaff, hostess, bus person. I always over tip. This was the worst worst service I have ever experienced, bar none. I would have been embarrassed to work there. I will never return to ND's and will actively discourage anyone from going there.

A little dark inside and lunchtime but there were too many of us to sit at the lovely tables outside. The staff were courteous and friendly and the burgers, BLT's, chicken sandwiches, etc all arrived promptly at the same time and the presentation was nice. One of the people in our party only had an hour and had plenty of time to eat and get back to work. I would go back to Ned Devines. Looks like it would be a great place to have a function!

They recommend me to eat their famous award winning clam chowder. Honestly it was by far the worst. It was watery and not what you expect to find in Boston. The waiter was extremely rude and didn't really care much. We then ordered the mac and cheese and it tasted awful. They waiter didn't even bother to ask if I want anything else and just gave us the check and disappeared. Horrible place!

The atmosphere is unusually pleasant at this energetic pub. Faneuil Halll can be frenetic during the holiday season, but Devine's somehow manages to maintain the atmosphere of a soothing oasis amidst the bustle, even though they are busy and people are coming and going. Maybe it's the carefully selected music, or perhaps it's the attractive decor, but everyone in our large party, including the young kids, heaved a sigh of relief when we were seated promptly at our reservation time. The food was remarkably good for pub fare. We particularly enjoyed the cubano sandwich and the kale salad, but everything was delicious. Will definitely go again.

This place was ok. Good for the crowd of people I showed up with. Food was adequate but nothing special. Prices were appropriate for the quality and amount of pub food served. What was weird about it though was that it didn't seem Irish, although it advertises itself as such. Only one Irish beer on tap or in bottle- the standard Guinness. No Gaelic music either. If you are looking for an Irish pub this is not it. Attentive wait staff though.

We got a table by the window upstairs, which was fun because we were able to watch the street performers below while eating in air conditioned comfort. The food was good, I had a chopped salad which was outstanding (chicken, pine nuts, feta cheese over veggies) I asked for the dressing on the side. It was forgotten, but brought over graciously and promptly when I asked. They didn't have iced coffee but when I requested a glass of ice and coffee it was quickly accommodated. My son enjoyed the crab cakes. We didn't feel rushed, it was enjoyable and we would go again.

We had a nice business dinner for 10 with a great waitress, good food. Afterward, around 9:30, we walked 10ft to the bar. When we ordered a drink, the bartender puts her hand on the bar and says "I have to ask, how many rounds have you already had?" Now she was the bartender making our drinks so she knows that we each had one with dinner? After assuring her that we were only getting our second drink, she proceeded to berate our entire group, calls over the bouncer & manager. We get our drinks but now we've been advised that if want another we would have to go somewhere else, "there are many places that will let you drink to excess" This was a group of eye doctors & administrators. Completely rude, insulting & uncalled for behavior.

Our group of 13 was accommodated extreemly well at Ned Devine's. Our Waitress was on top of everything, punctual, all the orders were correct and the food was delicious. Meredith, the Manager, was very accomodating as well.

A definite recommendation for anyone looking for a great location for dinner. Small or large group. And the Chowder was AMAZING!! Serving portions for the meals was perfect, and the apps were delicious!

Our server was MIA most of the night. She was obviously in the weeds, but at least she was apologetic about it when she did come around. The manager took a round of drinks off of our bill bc of the inconvenience. We would definitely give this place another try and recommend to friends. I think that she just had an off night.

Good local flavor. Award-winning Clam Chowder was worth buying. Did NOT like steak tips... way too salty and not good meat. 3-burger sliders were fine. Cool environment... bustling with activity... fun for families with high school kids and college students, but not a husband-wife place, unless you want that ambiance. Service was excellent... our waitress was right-on target and she gave us a few samples of beer to try. Nice job there.

My wife and I decided to drop in as we were walking the Freedom Trail and what a surprise it was. We walked in, after Open Table pointed us in this direction, and were seated promptly. We wanted to try the clam chowder and lobster rolls and found that combo in the lunch menu. They both were some of the most flavorful food we had in Boston and look forward to coming back again.

As I was planning a bachelorette party for my sister, my friend recommended Ned Divine's and I'm glad I took his suggestion! The food was yummy, there were plenty of drinks to be had for all types of people, and the live entertainment was so much fun! The staff were very helpful and we had a memorable night of dancing after dinner! Spending it all in one place was much better & cheaper than hopping from bar to bar. It gave us more time for fun!

The clam chowder was pretty decent, but they ran out of Mac and Cheese during the dinner service. Not sure why they ran out in the middle of Sunday night dinner, but we got something else from their special Lobster Menu.

The service was spotty. They ran out of tomato soup and had to make it fresh for my husband's order. His order then came a good 20 minutes after everyone else's food. It was a bit annoying, but we were meeting people from out of town and it was easy to meet up there.

I don't think I would go back for the food, but for convenience and a place to meet people, it's ok.

Service was good, even though the kitchen forgot an ingredient in the burger (after noticing it to the waitress, she fixed it though).
The beer was room temperature.
There was no A/C, by 94 degrees outside; just a huge fan.
