We have tried over time to visit Mr Dooley's but for various reasons it never happened. This time it worked out and we had some drinks and enjoyed some music during the day on a Saturday. I was surprised at how small the place actually...More

NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY! If you are looking for dried out chicken tenders, burnt chicken on a burnt bun, this is the place to be. Overpriced steak tips soaked in bbq sauce. Horrible service. Man fell off bar stool and they kept right on serving him...More

We love Irish bars anywhere in the world but this is a great bar. Guinness is top notch and entertainment is great. If you are from UK then one meal will be enough between two as the portions are huge. We had a great time.

Upon arrival, the waitress barely acknowledged our presence. The food was good (comparing to pub food), but the service is nonexistent or rude.

The music was great, the beer was cold, but the service was less than desired. When there’s hardly anyone in the bar, and one customer has you tied up with a story, it’s okay to look at your new customers coming in and at least...More

We stopped in here for some true Iris fare and was not disappointed. The dinner food was great and breakfast even better. We have been to 46 States and if you are in Boston and don’t stop here.....shame on you. The rating 5 Stars!

Love this bar! The staff make you feel welcome and are very attentive. Traditional Irish Music, perfect pints of Guinness, Irish food you feel as if you are in a pub in Ireland. Loved it so much came here to eat for breakfast and lunch.

I felt like I was back in Ireland as I visited this pub in the heart of downtown Boston. Had the Smithwicks paired with the sampler that included Guinness stew, Shepard’s pie and cottage pie. Fantastic and very filling and only managed to eat half....More

My husband and I stumbled upon this pub looking for a place to have breakfast one Sunday morning before Patriots day and the Marathon. We had a traditional full Irish breakfast. After the Marathon we came for dinner and live music which they have every...More

It's hard to find a breakfast place in Boston anymore since everyone's leaning toward coffee and muffins. Mr. Dooley's has a full (or half) Irish breakfast or your old go-to the American breakfast. Gorgeous antique tavern with the feeling of old Boston. Just about 1-2...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

I'd have to agree with the other responses. This doesn't seem to be a place I'd expect to see special menu options. But, you never know. Best to give them a call
