good pubfood near the intercontinental
i am heading out to Boston for a convention at the end of the month and will be staying at the Intercontinental Hotel. I am looking for some good easy places to go have a good beer with better than average bar food. After 12+ hour days i don't want anything complicated.
a good place to get a pizza that is close by with good beer would also be great.
Lucky's on Congress St just a couple of blocks over the bridge on the right would fit your description well on a weeknight for dinner - huge two-sided bar with good basic food, drafts, and service - until the throngs arrive on weekends. It would also be a 10-minute or less walk through downtown to Silvertone, where the food is way above average, but it can get pretty crowded.

Not too far on Broad Street are a series of Irish type pubs. I would suggest JA Stats. The food is pretty good. Around the corner is Umbria - not a pizza joint but good Italian.
On Broad there is also The Times, The Littlest Bar and Dooley's. All basic beer and grub. Stay away from Vintage. Overpriced food and drinks.
