Being a Brit abroad I have found drinking in the states pretty expensive, however Costellos offered PBR by the pint for $2.50 which is a bargain. The settling is local with TVs displaying sports which is standard for your average American bar. Worth going to if you're staying in JP

We stopped at Costello's for a drink(or two) in the evening three days in a row. staff was always friendly (even helping us with the trvia quiz) and the beer and cider of good quality. Did not eat there so cannot comment on food

Great place for our family. We love to come here after a long week at work. Wings and Cobb salad are delicious.

This is a really nice friendly pub in the centre of Jamaica Plain, a suburb of Boston. Great friendly staff - we got on great with Nancy. She was so helpful and friendly. Good for nice casual food and a cool drink after a long day sightseeing!

After our day at the marathon, we were ready to sit, relax and enjoy a cold Sam Adams. The crowds downtown were thick so we made our way back to our rental in Jamaica Plain and discovered this spot. The place itself is nothing super special but it just has the feel of a welcoming, home away from home kind... More

Costello's is always a good place to stop in for a cheap beer and a plate of buffalo chicken. I've always had good experiences with the staff and the service. They have liveband karaoke on wednesdays, which is cool. Downside to Costello's is that it's cash only. Overall, a nice no frills local hangout to grab some drinks and dinner... More

For the location of this tavern, you would think it would be pretty good, nestled in with all types of good restaurants and neat stores. It sits on the main road in this up and coming town outside the city. What it amounts to is a bad smelling standard run of the mill bar with awful service and bad food... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Jamaica Plain
This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct community unique and separate from the bustle of other areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful, large green space well worth a visit if you venture to JP.
