I live close to Doyle's Cafe so for me its a definately a neighborhood pub for myself.
That said, the place is a good call if you want to just have an working lunch or show some out of towners a Boston-like pub.
The food is not bad but nothing that is earth shattering. Actually the best food on the menu is the pizza. Believe it or not its really some of the better in Boston. Burgers are usually a good call.
The beers are a good mix of local and macro brews. Always ask for what is cask conditioned. I had some hits and misses though with the cask conditioned. So "i told you so" applies here. Overall, you will always get a beer the way it was meant to be served here.
Great decor and very friendly service.

The best way to see Doyle's is to first go to Sam Adams (Boston Beer Co) and do their brewery tour. Easy to get to on "T" Red Line; head toward Forrest Hills and get off at Stoney Brook station. It's just a very short walk (follow the signs) to the brewery. Then after the tour of Sam's and having a few great beers; go outside and hop on the Doyle's Shuttle bus. What a fun short ride from Sam's to Doyle's; and it's FREE!!!
Once inside Doyle's you will have plenty of options on where to sit. It's a massive bar, and food is great. Good beer selection, and if you saved your Sam's tour ticket you get to keep your beer glass.
After a fun time at Doyle's you have short walk to the "T" Red Line. Once out the door walk straight across the street on Williams St, walk a block, turn right onto Amory, go to Green St "T" station.
