Hey, I might as well jump on the Anam Cara bandwagon too. I don't think there's a lot more to add to the previous comments. AC is very comfortable and inviting. The exterior is adorned with detailed woodwork and windows with hanging flower baskets like the classic pubs of the UK and Ireland. Outdoor seating is available (of course weather permitting). Over the last half dozen visits, the service and quality has been consistently very good. Although, last night it seems that there were three individuals sharing the bartending duties with no one person consistently there, leaving some holes in my service as well as other patrons. I enjoyed several pints of the Cisco Whale Tale Pale and some fish and chips. The fish and chips were tasty and the portion adequate but probably not worth the $13 they charge for them. On another recent occasion, I had an old bottle of Schneider Edel-Weisse served to me (2001 expiry). But the staff is human after all and those are minor complaints and nothing that would prevent me from returning. Overall AC is a great place to enjoy an eclectic mix of draught and bottled beers. Its one place thats made working in Boston this summer a pleasure.
