    Try the The Balvenie Double Wood Single Malt Scotch Whisky - The Green Dragon has been fueling rebellion since 1687, long before Paul Revere drank here. #Boston #nevertrump (via @Foodspotting)

    Don't bother. It's just a bar and they claim it's the oldest bar in Boston but the original burned down

    The oldest bar in Boston. It's not the original place it moved over. But the history and lore is there. Great quotes align the bar. Bartenders are awesome. Great prices. Decent bar food. Good ol time!

    The history gets fuzzy about this place in particular, but we do know the Sons of Liberty hung out at a place called the Green Dragon.

    The Irish Curry Cheese Fries are amazing. French Onion soup is a bit bland, but not bad. Seriously, though, get the curry cheese fries. They are fantastic

    Great atmospherebut food... Fries were overcooked in old oil, served cold;the fish and chips was fried in cold old oil, the lobster roll was prepared with a baguette bread. Not great experience

    Historically significant tavern in Boston. The original Patriots of Boston are said to have met here to discuss plans for the Tea Party. Now get your drink on and soak up the history with a pint!

    They SUCK. They didn't serve us water when asked AND the proceeded to not serve us anymore after we had a few drinks and were behaving. I've never been so insulted in a bar before in my entire life.

    The lobster roll and irish curry fries were both really great. Skip the Green Dragon Brew, it's like bud light or something. Cool place, would come back.

    Friendly Irish staff and a great cover band on weekends - the Swinging Johnsons (at least when I lived in Boston). Good combination of college students and young professionals.

    Great atmosphere in a beautiful, historis neighborhood, about 2-3 blocks from the original location. (The original was located about on the far side of the parking garage between here & Haymkt T stn)

    Came in later place was dead smelled like stale beer. Sat at the bar and the bartender never even looked over to take a drink order. Got up, left, she never even blinked an eye. Service is terrible.

    I have to say the Green Dragon House Ale tastes surprising, a lot like Miller Lite! Not a Fan!

    One of the best taverns around boston. If you are super hungry just get a sit by the bar... the crowd can be too big sometimes

    In keeping with historic tradition, the owners of the Green Dragon apparently haven't cleaned the tap lines since the War for American Independence.

    To really enjoy the place for its history and beer, avoid Friday and Saturday night. It just feels like a club then.

    Referred to as "HQ of the Revolution." Original pub was located on Union St & established in 1654. Copper dragon outside front door turned green due to weather, thus its name. More info in blog.<LINK> Read more

    They don't give proper change, can't make a half&half and put a lemon in a blue moon. Ok atmosphere but bartenders need to go back to school.
