Drinks, snacks and a view! Right on the harbor. Fun place. Waitress was on it! Nachos were very good. We'd go again.

We stopped in this restaurant/bar for a quick lunch. The food was good, the view is typical of places that are located on a pier. We didn't see too many Irish items on the menu. It is a typical sports bar with alot of TV's. When walking by at night, this bar is hopping.

5 of us chose to eat in the Whiskey Priest after having a late, biggish lunch so not wanting a massive dinner. We chose our food carefully and weren't disappointed. There was a huge range of whiskey and the location right in the harbour was lovely. Our server was attentive.

It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon so the outside deck overlooking the harbor was an easy choice. Our server Elizabeth S was very friendly and attentive and was like hanging out with a great friend! We snacked on the Spicy Shrimp and the Chicken Bites. We had asked Elizabeth for her suggestions and they were both excellent! Thank you for... More

The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is great, and you have a beautiful view of the Seaport area. Need I say more? I celebrated my college graduation here in 2012 and recently went back to kill some time before my Harpoon Brewery Tour. Both times were fantastic!

I have been here multiple times, mainly for the location. Both times I've had some type of episode. The first was when a server forgot to put our order in before they stopped serving food altogether, we had to argue with the server and manager and still never received any food or compensation for our troubles. The second time we... More

Fun live music place, but terrible service. This is a tourist trap- very poor service during our night out in September 2016.

Simple sports pub with good food. Nothing fantastic but adequate. A little on the expensive side but for the area about normal

Very disappointing that the management completely and utterly drop the ball on realizing the potential of this bar. Management is either disinterested or clueless. Awesome location, cool name, great layout and... That's it. In the outdoor area expect a poor selection of drinks that will arrive in cheap plastic glasses, expect your food to arrive cold, don't expect much else.... More

We went in on a whim as we were walking past and ordered two drinks. The total was $34!!! Seemed excessive for what we received. Needless to say, we did not stop back there during our stay in Boston.

This area has been expanding and becoming more and more popular, for good reason. Not surprisingly, the seaport district of South Boston is located beautifully along the water. The area is designed for easy strolling along the HarborWalk, and there are bars and restaurants for all ages and budgets.
