My husband and I ate here after our Sam Adams Brewery tour because they offer a party bus to the restaurant after each tour, where you can get a free Sam Adams glass with your stamp and beer purchase. Since we did the 11:00 tour,...More

Worth a trip! Good old-school neighbourhood pub. Buy a Sam Adams beer and get a free glass. We took the 'party bus' to/from the brewery tour to Doyle's - apparently Doyle's was an early supporter of the Sam Adams brand, and this is how they...More

Great traditional Irish bar with great selection of San Adams beer. If you ever seen a movie that took place in Boston there is a good chance there was a scene shot at this. The food is really good. For appetizer we have enjoyed the...More

The atmosphere is unique & the history is undeniable, but the food is average at best. We got the fried fish, which was large, but nothing special. The Sam Adams glass that's included with your beer was the highlight.

We came after our Sam Adams tour, got a free beer, and had a great time. Fun atmosphere, delicious food. I got the irish nachos, which were AMAZING, and hubby got the chowder, which was ALSO AMAZING.

We visited Doyle's after taking a Samuel Adams brewery tour where they recommend this bar. You also get a free Sam Adams glass if you show your brewery tour stamp and order a beer. Be advised the glasses are seconds or factory rejects. We ordered...More

Anytime I had friends or family visit me in Boston, the first place we'd go was to Doyle's Cafe. In my opinion, Doyle's has the best clam chowder in Boston. They also have great burgers and other types of foods you'd expect to find in...More

Doyle's has a deal with Sam Adams. After you take the brewery tour, order a Sam Adams at the bar & you get a free Sam Adams beer glass. Fair enough. The beer was ice cold. Perfect. We ordered some Irish nachos (nachos with potato...More

After taking the Boston Brewery tour they direct you to Doyle’s for lunch and to get a free Sam Adams glass. This place is a great neighborhood bar. The lobster roll had a huge pile of meat. You can of course drink Sam Adams beer....More

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
