    Food was good- baked haddock was fresh, the burger was ok -a little dried out. Service was very good- twice we called attention to computer errors on our bill- 1st the haddock dinner was on twice, no burger on bill. They corrected that and put the burger on the bill-but no price on the burger-so it wasn't included in the bill-we had them add the burger to correct the bill again- i would note we were not happy with the extra charge when using a credit card!

    Came here for Mother’s Day brunch. They did not disclose there would be a pre fixed menu. The menu barely had options for those with dietary restrictions and most items were appetizers and not actual meals. Service was slow but our waitress was amazing definitely was not her fault

    Industry was in transition to a new menu and had limited offering but they did not let us know that before making a reservation. our sever was very attentive but I don't think had a grasp of what was or was not available on the menu. I will go back and give them a second chance to see if they have worked out the kinks.

    Food was outstanding and so was our waitress who had brought us four waters (with ice). After taking our drink order and bringing my “ginger ale - no ice”, she returned a short time later with a water - no ice for me !!!

    Went for their St. Patrick’s Day celebrations and it was wonderful! Traditional Irish music was playing early in the night and then there was musical bingo. There was an Irish dinner menu and people of all ages. I even got a Guinness glass with my name on it :) seems like this place also has cool events on the reg.

    8 people at the table. Pancakes were dry, omelette over cooked. Overall everything was just ok. Waitress was not attentive, we had to ask for her a few times. Myself and one other person arrived about 10 minutes before others, no one ever came over to see if we needed anything, not even a drink. Not impressed at all.

    This was my first time coming here for brunch, overall the food was decent. My friend ordered the french toast and was pretty underwhelmed. The service was very slow this particular day despite the place being relatively empty. I could tell they may have been understaffed so I understood.

    We ordered chicken parm and chicken marsala, the chicken marsala was a little watery but the chicken parm was delicious. We both like there house cabernet which was Sycamore Lane and I got a delicious old fashioned. Fabio the host who also may have been the manager was doing everything in the restaurant and was very friendly and trying to keep things moving as they were most likely short staffed as most places are. The menu changed from the original menu here to make it more affordable and a much larger selection of food fitting for Adams Village in Dorchester.

    Our server was not attentive. She was very uninterested in our table. I believe she should not be in the food and beverage industry. When I asked her a question she was like it’s a drink we serve at brunch. That was it, not an explanation of the ingredients or anything. The food was ok. They don’t have rolls for when you order entrees, she didn’t know the seasonal fruit for the cheesecake. She said they were blueberries but when it came out it had strawberries on it. I ordered the chocolate cake with raspberry sauce and it came out without the raspberry sauce. There isn’t really anything I can say positive about the Industry is that they offer a small discount if you pay with cash.

    This restaurant has an attractive ambiance with an entree of classic favorites and pub fare. My guest had the Chicken Marsala and she said that it was the best she ever had. I had the Shepard’s Pie which is classic comfort food. The service was good and friendly. This is the kind of neighborhood restaurant which you would love to dine in every week.

    Service was a little slow, even to get drinks & water it took some tome for the waitress to return to our table. the chicken wings were great but apart from that the rest of the food was ok, could use a little more seasoning. We had the salmon & the steak with mashed potatoes.

    My friend and I had a great dinner here last night. It’s kind of an upscale pub and it felt nice and cozy on a chilly fall evening. We shared the shepherds pie and the meatloaf and both hit the spot perfectly. The service was above and beyond, our server Karen was SO nice and really took care of us. A couple other servers checked in with us at various points and they were super nice as well. This place has a great vibe and was perfect for a low key dinner out.

    We arrived at 5:10, 40 minutes past our reservation time, in a rush to make a 6PM reservation for Boston Lights at the nearby Franklin Park Zoo. A Groupon led me to The Industry. We were in a real hurry, but we were immediately seated at the table of our choice. Our server, Erin, was very responsive and helpful with our orders and they arrived quickly. Very tasty, but we were in a hurry, so took much home with us. Erin had the check ready to go and was prompt in all aspects. My son swiped what was left of my chocolate cake with raspberries, so I have independent proof that it was good, as were the pizza and fish dinner. Very happy with our experience.

    Came here for Sunday brunch and made a reservation beforehand. It seemed very slow (there were maybe 5 tables seated outside) and our server was very nice, but food took about 45 minutes to get to us and there were some items missing from our order. The food was delicious though, but it just felt unorganized overall.
