Visited around lunch time after a Sam Adams tour. Rather large brown pub with decent food and fast service. The beer selection is mostly Sam Adams

A brown, quite worn down cafe with several rooms. Lots of seats, and quick service. They cooperate with Sam Adams nearby, and there’s a shuttle going back and forth between the two, at no cost. The food was decent, prices too, and there were several Sam Adams beers on tap. Some others as well. Not a place I’m gonna miss, but if you’re taking the Sam Adams brewery tour I’d suggest stopping by.

Came by after the Sam Adams tour (right around lunch time). Good bar vibe, casual and relaxed. It was fairly empty at time we visited. Decent draft list that mostly focuses on SA/Boston Beer beers. We both had the chowder in the bread bowl, and loved it. One of the better ones I’ve had.

I stopped by here after the Sam Adams brewery tour back in July. The atmosphere is awesome -- classic, rustic, very nice. I noticed a lot of people complaining about the service here, but I found that it was great. The two guys behind the bar were nice as hell, and one of them even got my dad a beer. The selection’s above average, but nothing spectacular. The food here, I thought, was well above average. The clam chowder may be the best I’ve ever had, and the sweet potato fries and Reuben were also both super tasty. I highly recommend Doyle’s.

Doyle’s is a slice of Boston history. It’s a bit of a tourist trap, but it still has the feel of a local, Irish pub. The beer selection is sometimes disappointing, but you can always get a decent pour of SOMETHING here. The bar pizza is excellent. It’s not gourmet food, but whyt are you going to an Irish Pub for gourmet food? Try it at least once.

Irish pub food and a decent amount of local taps if you are from out of town. Smutty IPA always on draft and its what I always order. Food is ok, just order what pubs do best.

Fantastic historic old Irish bar. Has a genuinely old fashioned feel to it. Ideal to visit after a Sam Adams brewery tour. Bustling at lunchtime. Plenty of stuff to look at on the walls. Excellent service, excellent food. Rather mediocre beer selection, but you can’t have everything. Most of the Sam Adams stuff available but not much else of note - a couple of craft beers but nothing out of the ordinary. But you go here for the history and the atmosphere, not the beer range.

Went with Stegosaurus on our Boston tour.This is the first place to ever serve A Sam Adams beer. They had a rare Sam Adams brew the Koggen. 25 taps with the likes of Koggen, Pickwick, Hoegaarden, Smuttynose, Harpoon, Anchor, Chimay, Boddington, magic hat, sam adams. The food selection excellent . The owner was very nice and informative. He gave us Doyles glasses and the rare Koggen glass. He told us other good places in the area to get a beer. I highly recomend this place

The bar is a great part of beer history for the city of Boston. The place is very historic looking, clean, and big. This is the first place to ever serve Sam Adams beers. They had proper glassware and rare brews. 25 taps with the likes of Koggen, Pickwick, Hoegaarden, Smuttynose, Harpoon, Anchor, Chimay, Boddington, magic hat, sam adams. The food was excellent we all had different burgers 4 in all they were very good. The owner was very nice as well as the bartender. They talked about the history and also about beer with us. This was a great place to visit while i was in Boston. When we walked in the owner was cleaning the lines of some of his taps (that is always a great sign). They even played a joke on the Mad Indian, and told him that the cleaning solution was a new Sam Adams brew, and he wanted to drink it, this place was great fun, i highly recomend this bar.
