    Headed there with a group before a concert. Food was great but the live music was way too loud to have a conversation.

    The Bebop was the highlight of our trip to Boston. We did the Sunday jazz brunch. I wasn’t expecting it to be an Irish pub when I booked, but it only added to the fun and charm of the place. We loved Noreen who runs the whole bar and kept us laughing. Service was great, the food was yummy and the music was fabulous - the highlight of the experience.

    Cool little restaurant/bar. Live music was playing but it was very loud making it difficult to talk. We arrived at 5;30 for a quick bite so it wasn’t at a time when the place was hopping. Food was great and reasonably priced. Our waitress seemed to be holding down the fort by seating people, waiting and bartending. She was a pleasure. Worth the visit if you are looking for pub type food. I had a salad with chicken. It was a really good salad.

    We sat outside, so can't comment on the noise level. Food was surprisingly good. This is a casual bar very near Berklee College of Music. Wait staff seem to be college students without a lot of experience, but friendly.

    Love the two bartenders (great young woman and man) who are warm, friendly, full of life, really hustle, and manage everything so well. Good selection of draft beers reasonably priced. Good size tasty portions served hot and most served with steak fries made just right, salads and sandwiches nicely done, and the fish and chips plate is large and fried in whatever great hot oil is used. There’s a story behind the wood mantle bar which makes you think of a pub in Ireland; I’ll get that information the next time! Live music draws a crowd of regulars and others. It’s a small space, but a great option in this part of town.

    Good good, nice scene pre-game/concerts at Fenway. Service was not great, no communication if handoff told a different server and no check in during dinner.

    The Irish session was awesome! On a hot day the restaurant is quite hot. We asked to move to the first level because it was very uncomfortable. The first floor had circulating fans that made it much better. It was super hot out, maybe the AC was struggling that night. That being said we would go back for sure!

    What a fun concept for a restaurant! Right near Berklee, is has a musical theme and Berklee students entertain diners. The atmosphere is cozy and the food is delicious. We loved the casual menu and the great service. The location is perfect for anything at Symphony Hall or Fenway. Outdoor dining as well asva second floor for dining are another plus. This is a win-win!!

    It was a busy Saturday and we sat outside. Noreen, our first server, was fabulous! Food was good, nothing extraordinary, but watching the world go by and enjoying the time with friends made it a great experience. The service was friendly and attentive. If you like music and a lively atmosphere, it looks like inside would be fun.
