We were a bit surprised upon arrival to find ourselves in a fairly basic pub. Usually, places on OpenTable have comfortable seating and someone greeting you. Bebop has wooden chairs that don’t work well for us folks with no built-in padding. Big negative: their heat doesn’t work and we were freezing the whole time. This is Boston, not Miami. Fix it. Flatbread appetizer was decent - maybe another minute in the oven would morph a little doughiness into crispness? Vegetarian shepherds pie was hot, hot, hot and salty beyond the Dead Sea. Dad liked his salad a lot. I was driving, so didn’t get a chance to try the chocolate martini, which looked very good. I asked them to wish my son a happy birthday in the OpenTable reservation, and they didn’t do that, so we went next door to JP Lick’s for dessert.

We stopped in for lunch on Sunday, and was happy to see a brunch menu! The best part was the live music! This venue is in the heart of Berklee and not sure if a coincidence but the 7 piece band was fantastic! We are at the bar by choice for good viewing seats. Staff was super upbeat and friendly. Is on my go to list from now on!

I live in the neighborhood but had yet to try dining at The Bebop, though I had been in for drinks and music. I took
my mom for brunch and had a great time. We sat upstairs in the balcony so had a great view of the band. They were short-staffed (isn't everyone?) so the bartender was also our server. I don't know how she did it (the place was truly hopping by the time we left) but we were taken good care of. Our tasty brunch drinks arrived quickly soon followed by our food. Mom and I both had a version of Eggs Benedict and both were delicious. Very pleased with everything. Just a wee bit of caution - it can get LOUD. Not the place for quiet conversations, but a lot of fun. I'll definitely be going back.

Not enough staff. We waited a long time for food and when finally served they had run out of one of our entrees. We were going to a show and didn’t have time to order anything else.

My dad loved his shepherd pie. My mom also liked her chicken sandwich. Both meals were alot of food and according to them super tasty. My meal was ehhh. The salmon was super dry. Although the rice was tasty and the broccoli was perfect. All in all it was a fine pub experience, but wouldn't have the salmon again.

Wonderful service by Liam and team at our outside table. If you are looking for good Irish pub food in Boston, this is the place. If you are lucky enough to be here for the live music, even better. We'll be back!

It’s nice there’s always live music at The Bebop. On 6/9 the bluegrass band that was playing, The Mud Cells , was supposed to also be hosting a bluegrass jam before and after their set, as it was advertised on the web site. They never invited musicians up to jam despite seeing a few instrument cases in the audience. After their break, they went back up and played by solely by themselves again and then said goodnight. We drive over an hour to attend and jam. The bar itself was awesome and the food was good. Service was great!
