The Black Rose draws tourists and locals alike into a jovial drinking atmosphere. The bartenders here know how to pour a pint of Guinness, and most will have a brogue, too. Dark walls and smoky air give an Irish pub feel. Two floors have long tables for large groups and stages for live entertainment. The noise level inside does get rather loud, especially on weekends when local bands perform. The kitchen serves burgers and sandwiches, although most patrons come for the drinks and music.
Check your receipt at The Black Rose. While paying for a dinner/date last winter I noticed the tab was [clearly] over charged. Asking for an itemized bill I pointed-out the inaccuracies to the bartender. Even with printed proof he would not take responsibility and quickly escalated the situation by summoning the door bouncers.
Well, I paid the excessive bill (plus tip) and then had their goon bouncer’s attack me into Mass General. Now 9 months of mri’s, x-rays, painkillers, rotator cuff surgery, and physical therapy I am just getting on my feet…Cheers!!
1st time in Boston, we decided to eat at the Black Rose. We were great with a friendly greeting. We were seated upstairs and the service was not professional. The food was cold we ordered Buffalo strips and they were cold inside meaning to frozen food. My friend ordered a chicken diner and the entire meal was cold from the chicken to the vegetables. I ordered a Black Rose burger and the fries and meat was cold. We dint bother to complain because we just drove 4.5 hours and we were tired and hungry. We all said the food was cold and not good. We were a block from the market where the food is fabulous. The best thing was the Jameson whiskey it was cheap but the Guinness was flat and watered down. When you see Black Rose keep going. PS I was wearing a New York Yankee Baseball cap.
If not for any other reason you must come by the Rose on a Saturday or Sunday and try their traditional Irish Breakfast it is the best breakfast I've ever have had and I keep coming back again and again for more.
