We went with a large group for dinner. It took over an hour for our food to come and we were constantly low on drinks - at one point my husband went up to the bar and had to ask to have the water pitcher refilled. Several of us ordered burgers, and when they arrived they were on wheat toast. The kitchen had run out of buns and there was no apology.

Our waitress was very nice and trying her best but it was obvious that they were under-staffed. We would go back as the ambiance and live music was fantastic but we would stick to drinks at the bar.

I likely won’t go there again because it was just too noisy. I came out with a sore throat because I had to shout at the person I was with because of the high noise level.

Great place for a quick bite or to hang out for hours. Great live music early too, they looked like students and they were very good and entertaining. The place gets very busy at times so make a reservation.

Friendly. Fun. Great music. Good food. Irish cider. It is loud. The space is small. Surfaces hard so sound bounces. But if you are looking for music, this is a great spot.

So happy that I was able to find a place with vegetarian Shepherds Pie for my St Patrick's Day trip to Boston! They also had an Irish folk band playing. Loved it!

I had one of the best salads i've ever eaten -- the Greenhouse (?). Fresh, really tasty, satisfying.
It was REALLY noisy (6:30 on a Friday eve), but my ear plugs helped...

Had a lot of fun. Small and great atmosphere. Loved the drop in musicians, crowd ranged all ages. No rush to get in and out. Huge portions

Started with the Octopus appetizer-good but the smallest amount of Octopus. My drink-Irish Ginger was too sweet, but I was impressed they have Crater Lake vodka-a great brand! For the main course, I had salmon- nice sauce and sides. However, the others in my party had the burger and were all disappointed. Not sure if I’ll be back

This was our first time at the Bebop. The staff was friendly and the live music really fun. The menu seems to have something for everyone with reasonable prices. I had the special -- arugula salad with salmon which was delicious. Others in our group had the nachos, falafel roll up, and shepherd's pie. The service was a little slow, but it worked out fine as we wanted to hang out and talk with each other.

Went for the bluegrass brunch. The music was quite nice but made it a little difficult to hear at times. The restuarant was nicely decorated. Service was slow. I had the vegartian shepards pie which was great but expansive for the portion size. Overpriced restuarant for what it is.

Great place to have some good food and drink. You get to hear some unique music and just relax. Bartenders and Servers are attentive but give you your space when needed.

An ideal spot to meet up and connect.

Me and my girlfriend went for the Sunday Brunch with live Blue Grass music.
We were seated upstairs so we couldn't hear much of the music which was disappointing. Especially with a lot of people talking.
The place was definitely understaffed. Meals came without cutlery and we had to ask twice. We also had to ask three times for water before it came. I don't blame the waitress as I guess she tried her best with serving 15 tables alone.
Food was ok. Not the best pub food I ever had. But its a good deal as the prices are pretty low concerning the pricy neighborhood.

So far I would not go there again, but we will give them another chance next week.

While the food was very good, table service needs more polish and responsiveness. We requested water upon being seated and then two more times (to both our waitress and the person who delivered our food) before receiving it. My sense is that the waitstaff is handling WAY too many tables per person. Otherwise, it was nice being in a live music venue -- iron out the service wrinkles and you'll have a polished gem!

Had a nice night out in Boston at the Bebop. Great live music, comfortable seating and excellent staff services. Great day or evening spot for cocktails; however it seems that there is a lack of attention to the food options/quality. Could have bought a frozen burger at Trader Joes and enjoyed the same. Friends had similar reactions to the Shepard s Pie and sandwiches, nothing special. Would have given 4 or 5 stars if the food was better. Enjoy as a lical watering hole, forgo lunch or dinner.

The music was not great. We had three different servers throughout the night, and my boyfriend got really bad food poising. I don't think we will be going back here anytime soon.
