We went for a quick brunch and they had great options and everything was delicious!! The home fries have the perfect amount of crunch! Also the staff is always so kind!

Great place for a beer or a cocktail and some appetizers. Particularly fun when there's live entertainment (hopefully someday soon - fingers crossed).

Went to Bebop prior to show at Berklee. Although was very crowded both service and food were excellent. Conveniently located and energetic pub environment. Entertainers from Berklee show we’re visiting tables which was an added treat.

We've been twice and on both occasions have been greeted as we entered with live music and friendly staff. It can full up quickly, even early in the evening, and I understand why, when you combine great food in generous portions, a solid group of craft beers on tap and live music, it's the perfect atmosphere to relax and hangout with friends. I had the steamed mussels and a pulled pork sandwich both very good. The others in my party all commented on how good their meals tasted, especially how fresh the salads were. Our next visit will be on a Monday night, it's open mic night, and we're looking forward to hearing the talented musicians that populate the Berklee College neighborhood.

If you want a casual place for a simple dinner and drink it is a great place. Very cute Irish Pub feel and the service was great. Would definitely go again.

The food at Bebop needs a great deal of improvement. It by no means reflects good genuine pub food. The food was not well prepared, the quality was poor. Service was just adequate.

The ambiance is very nice, quite cozy very traditional pub-like. Its a pity the food is not better

Nice pub atmosphere. Sat upstairs. Very hot there, by the way. Fish was fresh. Spinach salad was tasty. Pulled pork sandwich was good. Portion size good. They had a live guitarist playing, who was very good. I would probably return.

Dropped in last minute before concert at Symphony Hall. Parked at a meter out front and walked to concert. All over the place with the order but all was delish! Octopus was cooked perfectly - tender and delicious. The green salad and basil dressing was a refreshing mix of goodness however the avocado wasn’t great. Finished with the Mediterranean platter and couldn’t finish it. The pita chips were perfectly crispy and salty. The falafel atop the salad was well done and not too dense. So pleased with this gem! Prices were right! Can’t wait to come back - for the food and the live music!

Made a reservation for me and my girlfriend since I was only in town to see her for a couple days. We figured that the good reviews were a good sign. We walk in at 9 o'clock, passed the band, there there's very few people in there. The only staff we saw all night were the 2 bartenders. The lady bartender took a while to get up to us after we asked if we could sit upstairs. The menu was smaller than I expected but that's my fault for not looking it up first. After being there for about 30 minutes we were finally able to order even though nothing appealed to us. Our food came out and was, honestly, the most disappointing dining experience I've had in a while. My sandwich was still cold and had basically no mustard on it, and my girlfriends was drenched in jam even though it was supposed to come on the side. We ate what we could, paid, left, and ordered a pizza. The bartender taking care of us and the music were the only positives. What is the point of making a reservation for a date if there's nobody there meant to take care of it?

Food was only okay. And there was a musician, appeared to be open mic, who was not very good and pretty much ruined the atmosphere. Service at the bar was good and otherwise a nice atmosphere.

We stopped in here after seeing a theater production and this wasn't what we expected. We thought it was more of a sit-down restaurant than a pub so we felt slightly out of place. It took awhile for a hostess to seat us. Our server was fine and the food was fine, but nothing special. I think the most uncomfortable part for us was the music they had was really not great. It messed with the ambiance. Would try it again in the future for a more low-key double date night, but after getting dressed up for the theater, this was, well, awkward.

The food was very good. My friend had several modifications to her salad and the chef got it perfectly right. Grilled the chicken or perfection. We had a seat up on the second floor by ourselves which made for the perfect catch up. When taking our order the waitress was a bit flustered when my friend was listing the modifications which was slightly off-putting, but all in all, it was a lovely place to eat and I will definitely be back again!

We come here when The Finns are gigging here. The Irish food is by far the best. We got the nachos tonight and a lot of people were ordering them so clearly they’re popular. We felt the chips and cheese ratio to the other items were unbalanced. We would have appreciated more meat and beans and maybe peppers and onions too rather than more chips and cheese and I would have preferred more guacamole as opposed to the mound of sour cream.
