Crowded, Trendy, Long Lines, Cover Charge, – I'm not to fond of Downtown anyways. McFadden's is too popular. Takes forever to get a drink upstairs. Downstairs is hot and smells like dudes. Not a cheap night on the town.
However, if your looking to get some this is the place. Guys: Amazingly hot girls. Girls: you are severly out numbered
What a crappy bar – Place wasn't crowded when i arrived around 9 and it took 25 min to get a drink and i was sitting at the bar. Halfway into the night, the men's bathroom upstairs was flooded and no one fixed it. Plus the one toilet was broken and covered with a trash bag. Way to run an awful place management. The crowd was the only place that partially saved the night.
What a place!!!!!!!!! – This place is great! Went there with a bunch of friends and they all loved it. The drinks were strong and reasonably priced. It gets crowded so get there early if you want a good spot. And the woman, oh the woman-very good talent. Definetaly recommend this place.
The worst place – I went to McFaddens with a group of my girlfriends and we had an aweful experience. We waited about 45 minutes in the rain to get in...and when we got in the place was not even at capacity. They held the line outside to make the place look like it was a popular place to be. Inside the drinks were expensive and the service was horrible. The DJ was the worst of all. He didn't like us because we were from a town that he thought was snobby...over his microphone he proceded to talk bad about us in front of the entire bar. When we approched him about the situation he took a drink and threw it on my friends head. Extremely inappropriate and unprofessional. I will NEVER return the that bar and I hope that you don't either!
Don't waste your time. – On my first trip to Boston, I met with friends at McFaddens. Not only were the drinks overpriced and the wait staff completely inattentive, the DJ was awful. Along with the terrible music he played, he called out two guys that we were with just because they happened to be fans of an opposing hockey team. He got the whole bar to crowd our table and flip them off. We had to leave after that; it was ridiculous. I will never go back and frankly, after an awesome day of sight seeing and shopping in a great town, he left me with a very negative view of what some people in Boston are like.
AWFUL – This place is awful! The service is slow, the drinks are over priced, and the dj's suck. Don't go here unless you want to pay to get verbally abused. I recently went here and the DJ was a complete jerk. He told everyone that they could walk by our table and flip us off because he basically didn't like the same hockey team. Childish, I think so. So if you walk by and see a line for the door, just keep walking it will save a lot of anguish and money.

With a handful of tables that contain personal TVs and several other screens scattered about, McFadden's maintains a modern sports bar atmosphere. Once the big game ends, patrons head downstairs towards the dance floor or the stylish private lounge. The bar's solid beer selection proves popular with the budget-minded young professionals that comprise most of the crowds.
Great Place - I love it! – I have never seen so many good looking people in one place ever! They play great music, you can be upstairs and a part of the huge party or go downstairs and relax in the Blue Room and talk and drink with friends. The bartenders are awesome, and contrary to other reviews the management has always been really nice and accomodating. I definitely recommend it.
Better than the last place... – This location has gone through so many changes...Finally a better crowd, better music but still poor management. I have to say, this is definitely a good place for a single gal to go. There are alot of young professionals and eye-candies. Bartenders are very energetic and friendly. Plenty of room to dance downstairs....but no AC!
Great Place - enjoyed it – Wonderful new pub in boston. Lines are long but worth the wait. THe clientele is nice, bouncers are polite...and the bartenders? Well, can't get prettier then one of them...and she can pour a MEAN drink.....
