Doyle's Cafe, Boston
Doyle's of Jamaica Plain has been serving up food and drink since 1882, and along the way it's become one of Boston's best-known hostelries.
It has hosted all stripes of dignitaries over the years, and is an essential stop for any area politicians - especially on St Patrick's Day. Several of the rooms have been named for well-known Boston leaders (usually of Irish-American background).
The pub is huge, with several large rooms spilling into one another, so it's perfect for large groups. They have a pretty extensive beer list, and a good selection of the usual bar-food items. The sandwiches are extremely cheap by local standards, and come with large portions of thick-cut French fries, which are delicious. They also do great sweet-potato fries. The service, by contrast, is not the best here: you may well have to pester your waitress repeatedly to even get a menu, and there's not much smiling.
The bar itself is unusual in that there's no TV - this is where you come to chat, not stay glued to whatever ballgame is on.
Dress Code: Very casual.

Dress Code: cant remember i was far to oiled to be interested
The oldest pub in Boston (which almost all pubs claim in Boston). It stills has a bartenders union, which I thought was pretty cool! There is a great selection of beer and the locals are great to talk to.
