Steak was awesome: rib eye blue cheese crusted.. my colleague had a filet mignon: really small and a bit chewy. We could not understand a word from the servant, and the ambient sas way too dark. More

American | South Boston, Boston

Came here with my girls' part of our girls' weekend. They have a 90s hip hop brunch every 1st Sunday of the month and found that to be a bit disappointing as it was just 90s tunes playing with no other themes adding to it (like hiphop themed drinks/food, outfits etc.). If they do ramp that up it would definitely be another star!. Other than that the service was great, albeit our food did take some time to come out, BUT when it did WOW WOW WOW so good! My Good Morning Pizza was so big that I had to take some with me even AFTER I shared with BOTH of my girls (they kindly provided a plastic bag for me to make a portable cooler- to keep it refrigerated until I got to a fridge- with the ice from the ice bucket that held our champagne for our mimosas, which were great too!) . The food I sampled off their plates, the S'mores French Toast and the Chicken and Waffle Sandwich were also heavenly! And the bill was not bad at all for ordering our food plus splitting a table mimosa (which came out to be about 2 mimosas per person for 3 people) - a little less than $30 per person. Overall if you could just be a little patient for the food , it's a great place to come and eat and drink while bopping to some 90s hiphop jams :) More

The Black RoseThe Black Rose

Irish | Faneuil Hall, Boston

For the past 40 years, The Black Rose has been Boston’s premier Irish pub and restaurant. Located in the heart of Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall and steps from the city’s celebrated waterfront, The Black Rose has been serving up perfect pints of Guinness and traditional Irish fare 365 days a year since 1976. It’s a beloved Boston institution, prompting the Boston Globe to call it “The Fenway Park of Irish pubs.”

It’s name comes from the Gaelic term “Roisin Dubh” or the small black rose, which originates from a 17th century poem inked by an anonymous author who wrote: “Over the highways and byways the pilgrim goes aflame with the name of my small black rose.”

This is the essence of the Black Rose: an experience to stimulate the senses and create memories for years to come.

Pints are poured by staff with authentic brogues, the cuisine is authentic yet inventive, and there is live Irish music seven nights a week, all year round. More
