The Times Irish Pub
I am supposed to be going to The Times Irish Pub w/ friends and have never been. What should I expect? How is the food/atmosphere? Is this a typical Faneuil Hall, tourist hangout or place where the 21 year olds come to drink and get carted out before the night is through. Thanks for any info.

Atmosphere is a little more low key than your typical Faneuil Hall establishment. In good weather, they have a patio that is enjoyable to sit out at. I'm trying to recall their food and good chowder and decent turkey club is coming to mind. I know they share a kitchen with the Littlest Bar nextdoor.
I used to hang out at the bar there years ago when I cooked at Meritage accross the street. All the guys on the line would hang out here after our shift, and it was always a good time. The kitchen would be closed by the time we got there, so I can't speak on that, but the bartender Dave (bald fella with a goatee) was a great guy, and still calls me by name if I stop in, even if it's been several years. So, my two cents, is it's a fun place to hang out with friends for a beer (or eight!), and from what I've been told, perfectly acceptable pub food.

It's a pretty-low key place. I've only been a few times, but those few times it wasn't nearly as crowded and rowdy as most Fanueil Hall area bars tend to get. The food is decent too, the burgers are pretty good. And beer is pretty cheap.
