Welcome to Mr. Dooley's Boston Tavern You are "Dooley" invited in!

Nestled in the heart of the financial district is a haven of straight talking, down to earth hospitality that is known to many as “Dooley's”. Mr Dooley's Boston Tavern opened it’s door in September 1991 and since then has become the place to meet for “A pint and a Chat” in downtown Boston.

Throughout the explosion of “Irish Theme Bars” which have grown up in Boston Mr. Dooleys has held on to its tried and tested tradition of straight forward hospitality  - As one bartender put it “ If ye want a theme park go to Disney, if ye want a pint come to Dooley’s !”

But our relaxed attitude is not at the expense of quality. Indeed, Mr. Dooley’s has a full Lunch and dinner menu, which has been hailed by the media including winning “Boston’s Best Burgers” and Cheap Eats’ “Best of Boston” and Citywide acclaim for our authentic Irish Breakfast. As a tribute to New England, Mr Dooley’s also boasts an array of seafood dishes including traditional New England Clam Chowder, fresh oysters and lobster.

From Friday through Sunday there is entertainment which ranges from the traditional to the comical! with bands and musicians from Boston and Ireland. But that’s not where it ends. On any given night an impromptu “Sessuin” can start up, as Mr. Dooley's is a favorite with many local musicians. But perhaps the best form of entertainment provided is the friendly banter with the bartenders and the waitstaff.

So drop into Mr. Dooleys as a customer, you’ll be leaving as a friend. At 77 Broad Street, Mr. Dooley's is the one Boston Bar where everyone Really knows your name!

I think you will either love or hate Mr. Dooley's and I think I don't like it here for the same reason why other people love it. I can only comment on the bar aspect of this place as I was there too late for food. I would describe it as a classic Irish/Boston dive bar. No frills, nothing necessarily wrong with this place but there are better places in the area to grab a drink.

The server disappeared twice. Granted, she asked us a question, we talked for less than a minute amongst ourselves and looked back and boom they were gone. The tables were full, but I don't think they were THAT busy. My server friends will kill me for writing that... I expected a bigger beer selection but they had good options. Music was great, I miss Ireland all the time, and it reminded me of all the things I did try to avoid there because it was too touristy...but it was great here!

If you're a female the bartenders will hit on you. If you're a male who comes with female friends, then the staff will dismiss you and eventually refuse to serve you. I've never been so disrespected by wait staff. There are many great bars and restaurants near by. Go to them. Never go here.

Good atmosphere, good beer. However, do not order nachos: they are dry and not good.

Down right my favorite watering hole. Its real, gritty, and fresh off the boat Irish!!!! Guiness pour is the best in the US possibly, and the live music will make u feel like ur in the peasant quarters of the Titanic. And thats a good thing!
