Emmet's is a great little irish pub a few blocks of Boston Commons. They were pretty quiet due to Covid, but still a great place. The food was wonderful and the service was fantastic.
Best Guinness pour in town...reminded me of Ireland. love the ambience ..step into a real Irish pub ..hope to get the music back someday when covid dies❤️❤️.
Beef stew was awesome along with the Bloody Mary’s
This is the real deal!! Totally authentic and great service. The Taste of Ireland is a great way to sample the Shepard’s Pie, Beef stew Aaaand the chicken pot pie. Whew! All my favorites. It was hard to decide which one was my favorite! The gravy on the Shepard’s pie might have taken the lead!
I definitely recommend!
Great place! Good energy and vibe...
Great ambiance. Clam chowder is the best. Came all the way from GA and any time I’m in Boston I stop here for the clam chowder and Irish live music. Staff is friendly and professional.
Second time here was very excited to return as the food was excellent the first time. Unfortunately although I ordered the same meal as the first time the food was not quite as good. He having said that I will return again.
Always a welcoming atmosphere and staff! Love a Guinness pint!
Our favorite Irish Pub! Guinness onion soup is off the charts tasty. Fish nChips rock! Blueberry crumble soooo good. The staff is authentic, friendly and take care of you like family. Makes ya feel like you're home!!
Loved this place. The service was great, very attentive & friendly. I was however, disappointed in the French Onion Soup. I have a sweet tooth but this soup was so sweet I could only finish half of it. I order French Onion Soup a lot and this is easily the worst I’ve ever had. Everything else was great so overall I had a great time.
Classic Irish pub. Classic pub grub.
Excellent food, service, and ambiance. The pub is beautifully decorated for Christmas. I will be back soon! :)
Never been disappointed here!! A little quiet during Covid, but Guinness, food and service outstanding as usual.
Great after work meet up. Service is great, following all safety measures. Good variety of draft beer.
An old world feel with lots of history on the walls but modern. Excellent food, all employees are very friendly.
Great old time Irish pub with the standard Irish and American fare. Friendly staff with great but not intrusive service. Full service bar with good variety of beer, wine and cocktails. The energy is fun and contagious.
Excellent place!! One of our favorite paces to chill and have a drink!
Lovely service. Got my particular order just right
Emmet's is great and will definitely go there again. I can't recommend using OpenTable for it though. We were running late on a Friday so looked here to find a place with an open table and made a reservation. After showing up 5 minutes early, we still had to wait about 30 minutes past the reservation time for a table to open up and be seated. Another couple that had walked in was seated ahead of us. What's the point of making a reservation if it's not honored? The service was fine but the whole process was pointless. Would have gone somewhere else for a table if I knew that the reservation wasn't valid. Like I said, Emmet's is a great spot and will walk-in there again, but there's no point to in using OpenTable to make a reservation there.
much too cold in the restaurant. Felt like no heat.
Wouldn't go back in winter.
We love Emmets and always receive the best service possible from Sheila!
Cozy Irish Pub---I had clam chowder for my app and fish and chips for lunch. My hubby had chicken pot pie. The fish was super fresh and crispy, so good. The chicken pot pie was the best I have ever tasted. I highly recommend!!!!!!
Very busy pub, little loud when busy but to be expected. Food is really good, I was expecting ok but it was surprisingly good! Service was a little slow because they were busy, we had to go up to the bar to get another drink because the waitress didn't come back for a long time, but not a big deal. I would go there again.
In town for concert.....food was outstanding. Guinness was the beat!
Food and atmosphere were great! The service, while friendly, wasn’t attentive at all. So slow!
As a family we love Irish Pubs/food our real criticism of Emmets would be the chicken pot pie was more of a chicken chowder than a pot pie. It was very thin (actually thinner than the beef stew). The Shepards Pie was seasoned well, tasted good, but was shy on meat. Overall, we had a good experience and everyone enjoyed the food except for the pot pie.
Quaint Irish Pub atmosphere, Friendly staff and good service. Like you neighborhood Pub.
Seating is a little tight at this spot, but it's Boston, so I guess what did we expect that in that department? Luckily, the whole family was really happy with their food and the service was really good overall. It was a great find, easy walk to our show at the Orpheum, and a place I would gladly come back again.
My husband and I went on a Sunday night. It was very busy and the waitresses were competent and working very hard, but there was not enough help and the service was slow. When we first arrived (6pm) the noise level was fine, but shortly thereafter they turned up sound system and it was too loud for us and for people at the nearby tables.
My husband got a burger and fries and the fries were delicious. I got a chicken breast on top of mashed potatoes and spinach which arrived at room temperature (at best). I sent it back, as I like mashed potatoes hot, but they came back several minutes later seemingly the same temperature and the chicken was dried out. I really wanted to like this place as I liked the "feel" when we first went in. We will not go back.
As a Boston native relocated in NYC, Emmet’s is precisely what I want when I come back to visit my friends. Right in Beacon Hill, near downtown, we can grab a drink before and after, and enjoy some quality Irish pub food.
Recommend the fish and chips and NE clam chowder.
It may be that I’m biased, being from Boston, but seafood is the one food category NYC doesn’t quite do properly.
We had reservations for 4 at 6 on a Saturday night, but caught in traffice and showed up 10 minutes late. No problem... we were seated promptly. We let our server know that we were going to a show, we ordered, and were served in record time. Service and food were great! Will go back again.
It was my first time to Emmet's and was pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent, the menu was varied and very reasonable and it had a nice, Irish pub vibe. They didn't have a live band but Irish music playing in the background which was a plus. I'll be back.
I would go back only because of the food and atmosphere. The waitress seemed like she didn’t want to be working and she seemed angry. There was a few times she walked by our table and never asked if we needed anything. The drinks were priced good but they were weak in value
Emmet’s never disappoints! Great Irish staples and the live trad music throughout the week brings us back to our time spent in Ireland. A great spot for any occasion!
Delicious food, great service and were very quick to check menu items when informed of a food allergy.
It’s nice. It’s bigger then it looks.
We ordered the Guinness onion soup, it’s was delicious. We also ordered fish & chips. It was ok but we were disappointed. My wife order was not presentable. Her fish portion was visually half smaller than mine and also it was burned. The cook should have noticed it and or at least the server before bringing it to us.
Great shepherds pie!
The curry fries always hit the spot
