    Great experience! The ambience is very nice, and the service is good. They seated us in a more private space, which was awesome since we had guests with their kids, and they even provided us with a kids' menu. Definitely will return.

    It’s a Thursday leading up to St Patrick’s day weekend, so lots of people and noise. Very loud. But it was a great experience. Live music. Food was outstanding (first time having vegetarian shepherds pie and it was nothing short of spectacular), and the beer and drinks were delish. Definitely a great spot, fun ambiance and overall great time. Will ensure we come back whenever visiting Boston.

    I made a reservation for dinner and the entertainment, but we were seated in the restaurant away from the entertainment. The hostess didn't really greet us, but took our name and led us to our table. She wasn't unfriendly, but didn't seem to want to be there. Being the week before St. Patrick's Day the restaurant was super packed. Probably too packed with people waiting for tables or just hanging out. Our waitress was friendly and the food was delicious; especially the Fish & Chips. Drinks were great too, pricey, but that is expected in Boston. There was some miscommunication about getting one of our unfinished dishes packed up to take home, but I think it was because I misunderstood what our waitress said because it was so loud in the restaurant. She kindly had another dish made for us to take home. The live Irish music and step dancing was a nice added bonus; we went into that bar room after eating dinner in the restaurant.

    The Dubliner has been recommended by friends and family as the owner is from Donegal and all gave accolades. We had no idea when we booked to meet friends for brunch before doing the Winterexperience that it was the Six Nations Rugby tournament. Our server was wonderful and the food was great. As the Ireland-England came was approaching crowds of people, literally hanging over tables jammed every inch of the restaurant to the point it felt unsafe and was almost impossible to get to the restroom or the exit. We have gone to many pubs to watch games but have never seen the dining areas so overfilled from the bar. We will be sure to check the game schedule before we would return.

    This was our first time going to the Dubliner. We chose it because they were hosting Trad music on a Sunday afternoon. The location threw us at first since it was on the ground floor of an office building. However once inside it felt like an Irish Pub should. The food was very good. I wanted to have the fish and chip but decided not to when i saw that it was haddock instead of cod. So I opted for the Irish Stew which was flavorful, the beef fork tender, and a good sized serving. My wife tried the Vegetarian Shepherds Pie. She liked it. The prices here are very reasonable both for food and drinks. Service was friendly with a few minor miscues. Hostess was preoccupied with fielding phone calls at the front which caused people to wait both to be greeted and seated. Seems like there could be a better process there. Bread did not come with butter as was listed on the menu. I asked for butter but it never came to the table. The Dubliner was lively, food good, service mostly good, and it had a great atmosphere. The bar area is noisier than the back room and there is outside seating in the warmer months. We will definitely return.

    I was looking for a Bruin's pre-game spot for dinner that's not too close to the Garden to avoid the hassles of parking, lines, standing room only, no seating...... This was perfect. Garage parking was a fraction of the cost of closer lots, and it was a 10 minute walk to the Garden.... a nice crisp winter walk which can easily be insulated with a serving of Jameson before leaving. Dinner was fantastic. Service was better. Request Rachel's table. ..... and the nice thing is that it's there for a great post-game gathering. I'll be back!

    The Dubliner is a large Irish Pub with a lot going on. Live music, bar, tv. There is a dining in the back but you are still part of the main restaurant. And you can hear the music and people. The food was good with generous portions. I had the fish and chips and was able to substitute a vegetable for the fries. My husband had the Shepard pie which was generous and very tasty. The prices are very reasonable. The service was outstanding. The chef wanted feedback on a special item, I thought that was impressive.

    Perfect pub food and great cocktail/beer selection. Definitely need to get here earlier to catch the Sunday roast as it’s limited portions but the shepherds pie and beef/Guinness pie made up for it! Good music and great service. We’ll definitely be back!

    The most basic and stereotypical Irish pub in a weird location. Food was extremely overpriced. I know it’s Boston but I can think of at least 3 better places to pay $18 for a cheeseburger in the city. My date’s Cesar salad was very average and the chicken was not good. It has that unseasoned “chickeny” taste. IYKYK. Would not recommend, especially considering it’s so close to Washington street and Faneuil hall food options.

    Despite having reservations with a specific request to be seated in a quiet part of the restaurant (as we were on a previous visit), we were informed that area would not be available without explanation.Sadly, the area out of seating was in a very loud location which really negatively impacted our experience as we were meeting with old friends we hadn’t seen in a long time. Not likely to return to The Dubliner anytime soon.
