  • In keeping with historic tradition, the owners of the Green Dragon apparently haven't cleaned the tap lines since the War for American Independence.
  • St. Andrews Lodge of Freemasons purchased this Tavern in 1766. They used the 1st floor for mtgs, & basement tavern was used by secret groups, becoming known as the "Headquarters of the Revolution".
  • Established in 1654 The Green Dragon was a favorite haunt of Paul Revere (Whom we consider a close Neighbor) and John Hancock (whos brother lived next door!).
  • The country was basically founded here.
  • Have the Sam Adams brick red beer...served only in Boston (delicious!)
  • The Headquarters of the Revolution.
  • Curry cheese fries are very good. A different spin on classic chili cheese fries.
  • 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>
  • We called and requested a reservation for 5:30pm and arrived at 5:15pm to learn that they don't take reservations! Great small lively pub with good food.
  • Came for the History...had a Paul Revere burger with Sam Adams... Done, and done.
  • Some of the best fish and chips I've had. Love their cajun haddock too.
  • 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.
  • Cougarville
  • Avoid it. Way overhyped and food was terrible.
  • Good atmosphere in a historic location. They have Magner's Pear Cider too!
  • 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.
  • For anyone from Baltimore: the Dragon Summer Brew is pretty much exactly like Natty Boh.
  • The Shepherds Pie is killer!
