Today's Groupon charms the orneriest taste buds and bewitches the most ravenous bellies with $20 worth of food and drink for $10 from Goody Glover's. Goody Glover's is a laid-back restaurant and pub that the Boston Phoenix calls a "new-wave Irish bar with good food." It was named after the last woman in Boston to be hanged as a witch, an Irish laundress named Goodwife Ann Glover.

Muse on the malfeasance with a grilled trio of North End sausages over colcannon with caramelized onions and peppers, or golden-fried beer-and-lemon-battered cod served with hand-cut fries (each $9.95). Goody Glover's serves Guinness on tap and innovative Irish fare such as eggrolls stuffed with corned beef, cabbage, and Swiss cheese ($5.95) and spring rolls from scallion mashed potatoes, cheddar, and crispy bacon ($5.95). The multicultural menu has appetizers (including a Cajun chicken quesadilla baked with jack and cheddar cheeses for $8.95), sandwiches (such as seared sesame-crusted rare yellow-fin tuna with ginger pickled slaw, seasonal greens, and a light wasabi aioli for $8.95), salads (try the hand-picked arugula with diced, grilled portabella mushrooms, roasted red peppers, and tossed in a basil vinaigrette for $5.95), and homemade soups.

The Boston Phoenix describes Goody Glover's ambience as "gothic-Celtic" with iron candlesticks, electric light, dark wood, a green stained-glass skylight, and yellow paint on the walls. Service is friendly and attentive, and the old-time décor and homey vibe is especially conducive to digesting, imbibing, and clipping individual letters from newspapers and magazines.


10Best and the Boston Phoenix reviewed Goody Glover's:

  • Reviewing an Irish pub in the North End? Clearly we are running against the percentages here. I was, however, intrigued by the menu, which has quite a lot of real Irish food and several dishes that appear to be something new for Boston: “Irish fusion.” I also thought there was a chance, since the owners had previously done a credible tapas bar (Brighton’s Tasca), that this was going to be one of those new-wave Irish bars with good food. It is. – Robert Nadeau, Boston Phoenix
  • The old red brick that houses this North End pub is a neighborhood landmark... Goody's is a popular two-level gathering spot that is known for its haute take on traditional Irish grub and its pleasant, laid-back vibe. – 10Best

Yelpers give Goody Glover's an average four stars, and 85% like it on Urbanspoon:

  • Goody's rocks. – Douglas D., Yelp
  • We shared the Sweet Potato Fries which were quite perfect, not too salty or crunchy...just right. – Kelley B., Yelp
  • Good Glover's is a great spot. Has an awesome history and friendly waitstaff. The menu changes are great and the prices are awesome. You really feel like you are getting your moneys [sic] worth. – Sherrie M., Yelp

Modern Witch Law

Although hanging was once the preferred punishment for those found guilty of witchery or being a woman, it isn’t permitted under modern Boston law. Today’s witch-sentences are more compassionate, and, in many cases, do not result in death. Here are a few of the potential punishments of our enlightened era:

  • Buying groceries and popular magazines for Denis Leary.
  • Overdubbing all dialogue in Citizen Kane with classic jokes from No Cure For Cancer, a stand-up album by Denis Leary.
  • Reading bedtime stories to Jack and Devin, the teenage children of Denis Leary.
  • Leaving a trail of bacon bits from Denis Leary’s door to his place of work, in a route that circumvents nearby playgrounds.
