Between years 2003-2005, my husband and I (and most times, our son, and college friends) frequented The Squealing Pig, Boston - close to where our son lived and went to college - found waitstaff VERY ATTENTIVE: food and drinks always wonderful - hearty food - atmosphere, great for having conversations without being "drowned-out" with music, etc. We are in our 50's and 60's, "the kids" then in their early to mid-20's - loved The Pig, as well. Continue to visit The Pig when we are in Boston - though "the kids" in Manhattan, now. Highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a good, hearty meal/drinks, quiet atmosphere, bit off "the beaten path" we still look forward to visiting The Pig whenever we visit Boston. And, yes, the VERY BEST FISH ,FRIES AND CHILI in Boston - many fond memories at The Pig: a great Irish Pub.

Dimly lit with a communal atmosphere, this is like having dinner in the kitchen of an Irish inn. VERY friendly waitstaff, I don't know what the last two reviewers were talking about. Food is delicious and unique, and the beer is varied and plentiful, with brands that many a beer snob can enjoy. Best of all: no students, no bragging about how drunk people were the night before, and only one TV, so you can talk if the game is on.

I went there three weeks ago. The service is so horrible that I still feel compelled to write. I will never go back! The waitresses are no where to be found and when they do come to your table, they are so rude that you almost wish they had never come in the first place. The Phantom Gourmet was way off on his recommendation of this dive. Why is it that the Tuscan fries list Porcini as an ingredient, but doesn't list that it is an oil and not a mushroom when they clearly list out Black Truffle oil? I thought that was a valid question after having received my order. The waitress didn't, her response, 'Well hey, I don't make the rules!'

The Squealing Pig is a subpar place. I have never been in a place where the wait -staff took pride in being rude to the customers, that is when you have the fortune to have one of them come over and ask to take your order. The food is bland, non-descript bar food with suitable prices for what it is. The place is usually packed with the usual Longwood Medical Area crowd, students, faculty and misc. science people. Overall, if you don't go, you haven't missed much.
