Help with name of restaurant near Fenway!

  • 7

Hi all, I'm coming to Fenway Park this weekend, and foodwise we're all set, but another group of friends we traveled with last year is coming up separately and they want to grab a bite before the Sox game at a spot we all ate at last time. But I can't remember the name.

It was on the same street as Jerry Remy's I think (We attempted to go to Remy's but it was booked solid which is how we landed at this other spot) and was right on the corner of a four-way intersection where if you walked down the street you'd be at Fenway. I think the outside of the building was green? Was it an Irish tavern thing?? All I know is my pals want to go there again but since we aren't going, they will never find it unless I give them an address. The food at this place was good (except for the fried pickles, the dudes didn't care for them).

Thanks for any help.

  1. A 4-way intersection on Boylston that leads to Fenway would have to be Yawkey. Maybe you were at Citizen Public House? http://www.citizenpub.com/ Not really an irish tavern, but apparently they have fried pickles.

    You lucked out with Remy's. The food there is truly dreadful. I was forced to go there last year and it was one of the worst meals I've had in Boston.

      Thanks Maillard, from the images online it does look like it was Citizen Public House! My friends said they will be happy to go there again! This is a great Remy's alternative.

        Thinking of Citizen as an alternative to Remy's is kind of funny, two completely different animals IMO. A Remy's alternative would be Sweet Caroline's or the Baseball Tavern.

          I actually kind of wondered if they had gone to the Baseball Tavern, as it is nearby and green. I have zero idea if they serve fried pickles though :)

      1. Can I suggest using Google Maps' street view feature to see what look familiar?

        1. Thanks everyone. Once Maillard gave me that name I researched images and recognized it as Citizen Public House. They have a round table my gang sat at and I saw it in a photo. I see they offer pig roasts. If we had more time we would do this. Putting it on my list for next visit.
