Over the past year we’ve seen several airport restaurants and bars in the US join Priority Pass. The concept is that at some airports Priority Pass has a tough time striking a deal with a major lounge due to crowding issues, so when that’s not possible, they instead work with a restaurant.

Priority Pass pays a fixed amount for each guest who enters a lounge, so instead Priority Pass is just paying these restaurants a fixed amount, and then you can spend some dollar amount at that restaurant (typically $28-30). So far in the US, Priority Pass restaurants & bars include the following:

Priority Pass has just added another US restaurant location – Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill at Boston Logan Airport.

As a reminder, the following are some of the most popular credit cards that come with Priority Pass memberships (I’ve also listed the respective guesting privileges):

Boston Logan Airport Priority Pass Lounge

Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill is located landside (before security) in Terminal C, across from the Alaska Airlines check-in counter.

Since the lounge is landside it should be easy for any passenger to visit, though it should be easiest for passengers on Aer Lingus, Alaska, Cape Air, JetBlue, Sun Country, and TAP Air Portugal, since those airlines have flights leaving from Terminal C. Terminals C & E are connected airside, though.

Furthermore, Jerry Remy’s will only be open to Priority Pass members between the hours of 2PM and 8PM. Outside of those hours, Priority Pass members won’t receive any sort of credit here. I suspect this is because “The Lounge” (the Priority Pass lounge in Terminal C) sometimes restricts access to Priority Pass members, especially between 4PM and 8PM, so this acts as a good overflow option.

Priority Pass members will be entitled to $28 worth of food & drinks per person. In order to be eligible you need to have a same day day confirmed boarding pass, though there’s no explicit requirement that it needs to be an outbound boarding pass (so in theory you could visit on arrival).

The Priority Pass member will be responsible for any overage beyond the $28 credit, and that credit can’t be applied towards gratuity (and personally I think it’s appropriate to tip, as a Priority Pass membership is just a form of payment here).

The restaurant is described as offering “classic New England fare in a full service sports bar named after local icon Jerry Remy.” You can find the restaurant’s menu here (click on “full menu” at the time).

Bottom line

While seeing Priority Pass restaurants added at some smaller airports has been cool, it’s also nice to see one added at a major airport. Jerry Remy’s does have limited hours for Priority Pass members, though fortunately it’s during the peak afternoon period, where Priority Pass members are probably most looking for a place to hang out.

The fact that the lounge is landside is either good or bad, depending on how you look at it — on the plus side, it’ll be easier for everyone to access, though it also won’t be as convenient for those connecting in Terminal C.

This is Boston Logan Airport’s fourth Priority Pass lounge, after The Lounge in Terminal C, The Club in Terminal E, and the Air France Lounge in Terminal E.

Anyone plan to check out Jerry Remy’s at BOS?

Comments

  1. Remy’s has your typical sports bar menu. Burgers, wings, sandwiches etc. average to below average food. They do make a good cocktail though. But the food in Terminal C is all pretty bad, so at least here you’re not paying.

  2. If you’re flying jetBlue, it’s hard to beat the prio pass situation. Even when The Lounge is full, you’ve still got the Air France lounge in Terminal E (which is a quick 5 minute walk and has more robust food.)

  3. Lucky, the PGA lounge in Minneapolis is also a priority pass restaurant, because when you enter the lounge they give you a $15 voucher good at four restaurants nearby in the terminal.

  4. Terminals C and E are connected airside, so there are tons of options there. Terminal B needs one.

  5. Its before security, so that’s good. Also right next to the horrible Alaska gates, which has very limited food. I had a great lobster roll there in the past. Its welcome, as the lounge by JetBlue gets full sometimes (Aer Lingus uses this).

  6. I’m flying out Friday morning to SFO on JetBlue. Won’t be able to use it then, but at least it’s another option for us B6 customers. Good for Mint flyers who have Priority Pass especially Almost like having your own lounge access with three decent options.

  7. MSP PGA lounge closes early on some evenings. Another Priority Pass disappointment. Wouldn’t be a focus here if the team wasn’t shilling credit cards.

  8. Thanks for the tip! I’ll be there later that month but will likely eat an early dinner in Boston first.

    Do you know if take out will be allowed?

  9. As others have noted B6 flyers have a great Priority Pass setup in BOS. Based on the hours this seems like they added it to make up for the restricted Lounge access before the Aer Lingus flights, as that lounge also contracts for them. Back when B6 flew out of LGA’s centeral terminal, flying b6 between BOS and LGA for work was great with the Centurion and Lounge access in BOS.

  10. Question is will the credit also work at Remy’s dinky lil beer stand at the Alaska gates? (The only thing that saves me from going totally crazy in that tragically neglected area)…

  11. Ugh. Just boarded a 2h delayed AS flight BOS>SEA. Tried to use ‘The Club’ (old united club) past ‘other’ C security to change my clothes. Incompetent staff and wouldn’t take PP members. Walked right by Remy’s on the way to the sad AS gates. Had I seen this post 5 min earlier…

    Btw, it doesn’t yet appear as a lounge on the Amex app.

  12. Does anyone know if you can stack priority passes here or any of the restaurants? I like many I’m sure, have 3 priority pass cards. Curious how that would work too if traveling with a family?

  13. How does the time thing work? Time you enter? Time the order is rung through the till? Time the bill (check) is printed? Time you pay?

    Not sure how well a time restriction works.

  14. The priority pass app also lists a second restaurant in Logan. Stephanie’s in terminal b (airside), served sophisticated comfort food in relaxed and inviting atmosphere.

  15. Have had several good experiences at MSP PGA. My girls like playing on the putting green and the food is better than the warmed over crap across the way at Escape lounge you guys recently reviewed. Comfy chairs,not too crowded, friendly service and a nice view of the apron. I could consider that a win.
