Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

This low-key, low-lit bar is an institution in Boston—a hangout for bike messengers, tattooed masses, business suits and borderline bums. Anyone who’s lived in Boston for long has met someone at Foley’s, or broken up with someone at Foley’s, or met and broken up with them there on the same evening. The hearty assortment of pub grub and a well-stocked bar keep the party going, especially when after-work crowds show up to blow off some steam.
