There are plenty of Irish pubs in Boston. Which ones offer quality food along with the drinks? A recent request for suggestions got Boston Chowhounds talking.
A good choice in downtown Boston is Mr. Dooley's on Broad Street. "There is always session music, and the staples (fish and chips, shepherd's pie, beef stew, banger and mash) are perfectly prepared," Small Plates says. "A cut above in all respects," lergnom agrees.
Guinness02122 recommends Shenannigans on Broadway in South Boston, as well as the Banshee in Dorchester. And phatchris mentions the Tavern at the End of the World in Charlestown for "very good food and an above average beer selection."
