Priority Pass is the world’s largest network of independent airport lounges, with over 1,200 locations around the world. The number of Priority Pass members has increased greatly the past couple of years, ever since the Chase Sapphire Reserve® Card was introduced, as the card comes with a Priority Pass membership (as do several other credit cards).
Priority Pass has gotten creative when it comes to the “lounges” they’ve added to their network. For terminals in which they struggle to reach a deal with a traditional lounge, Priority Pass has in some cases come to agreements with restaurants.
The idea is that Priority Pass typically pays a lounge a fixed amount for each guest who enters, so instead Priority Pass pays restaurants a fixed amount, in exchange for giving their members a dollar credit that they can spend towards food and drinks. At this point Priority Pass has about two dozen restaurant locations at US airports, including the following:
- House Spirits Distillery Portland Airport
- Capers Cafe Le Bar Portland Airport
- Capers Market Portland Airport
- Timberline Steaks & Grille Denver Airport
- Corona Beach House Miami Airport
- Viena Miami Airport
- Air Margaritaville Miami Airport
- The Pasta House St. Louis Airport
- Kentucky Ale Taproom Lexington Airport
- Bobby Van’s Steakhouse New York JFK Airport
- Bar Symon at Cleveland Airport
- Johnny Rockets at Syracuse Airport
- Barney’s Beanery at Los Angeles Airport
- Bracket Room at Washington Reagan Airport
- The Fan Zone Indianapolis Airport
- RJ Rockers Flight Room Greenville-Spartanburg Airport
- Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill Boston Airport
- Stephanie’s Boston Airport
- San Francisco Giant’s Clubhouse San Francisco Airport
- Yankee Pier San Francisco Airport
- American Tap Room at Washington Reagan Airport
- Landry’s Seafood at Houston Airport
- Cadillac Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar Houston Airport
- P.F. Chang’s Los Angeles Airport
- Chef Geoff’s Washington Dulles Airport
Jerry Remy’s BOS Priority Pass details
This August, Priority Pass added Jerry Remy’s at Boston Logan Terminal C to their network. Priority Pass members receive $28 of food and drinks per guest, and Priority Pass members can bring in at most one guest each.
We had quite a long layover in Boston, as we were arriving at around 3PM and I was departing at around 9PM. While we weren’t really hungry, we had lots of time to kill, so figured we’d check out this Priority Pass restaurant.
Jerry Remy’s is only open to Priority Pass members from 2PM until 8PM, so while the restaurant has longer hours, Priority Pass members won’t receive credits outside of those hours.
As a reminder, here are some of the popular credit cards that come with a Priority Pass membership:
|Card||# Of Guests Who Get Free Access||Authorized User Access||Cost To Add Authorized User|
|The Platinum Card® from American Express||2||Yes||$175 For Up To 3 People, $175 For Each Additional Person Beyond That (Rates & Fees)|
|The Business Platinum® Card from American Express||2||Yes||$300 Per Person (Rates & Fees)|
|Chase Sapphire Reserve®||2||Yes||$75 Per Person|
|Citi Prestige® Credit Card||2||Yes||$50 Per Person. ($75 Per Person for Cardmember Anniversary dates after September 1, 2019)|
|Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card||2||No||$0|
|Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant™ American Express® Card||2||No||$0|
Jerry Remy’s BOS review
After landing on Lufthansa we headed to Terminal C, since my dad and I were both flying JetBlue (though on separate flights). With time to kill, we headed towards Jerry Remy’s.
The restaurant is located landside (before security) on the departures level across from the Alaska Airlines check-in counter. For reference, airlines departing from Terminal C include Aer Lingus, Alaska, Cape Air, JetBlue, Sun Country, and TAP Air Portugal. However, anyone flying out of the airport could visit this restaurant, given that it’s landside. Furthermore, Terminals C & E are connected airside.

The restaurant was easy to find. When facing the security checkpoint, Jerry Remy’s was to the left, and had a neon green exterior, and was located right above the escalator.

The restaurant even has a Priority Pass sticker posted by the entrance.

The restaurant feels like a sports bar. Near the entrance is a bar with some high-top seating, and then further into the space are more traditional dining tables, including some booths. We got there before 4PM, and it was busy, but there were still some empty seats.

Upon being seated I informed the server we were Priority Pass members, and she said that wasn’t a problem, and to just give the card at the end. The menu read as follows:
Having just gotten off a first class flight with very little movement the entire day, I wasn’t very hungry. However, I figured I should order something, so that I could review the place.
My dad ordered a glass of red wine, while I had a Diet Coke.
Jerry Remy’s Boston Logan Airport — drinks
To eat we ordered the tuna burger sliders, described as three yellowfin tuna burgers seasons and topped with seaweed salad and sriracha aioli. These were pretty decent, and a good portion.

I figured we might as well order something else for review purposes, though hate wasting meat, so I ordered the grilled veggie and hummus platter described as offering fresh veggies with a kalamata olive roasted red pepper and artichoke salad and hummus, with grilled flat bread.

While the tuna sliders were pretty good, the hummus platter was… not.
Both of the dishes were brought out within 10 minutes, and I have to say our server was exceptionally friendly. At the conclusion of the meal she presented us with the bill, and she explained that gratuity was not included. I appreciated that she explicitly mentioned that, since it seems to be a big issue with Priority Pass, since people don’t realize they should tip (in the sense that paying with Priority Pass is just another form of payment at this restaurant).
I gave her my Priority Pass card and a cash tip, which she thanked me for profusely, and we didn’t have to pay anything additional.
Jerry Remy’s Boston Logan Airport bottom line
I love the Priority Pass restaurant concept. I was impressed by the friendliness of everyone working at Jerry Remy’s, in great contrast to Bobby Van’s at JFK. If you have time to spare you might as well stop here for a drink or snack.
Logan Terminal C does have a Priority Pass lounge (called “The Lounge”), which I visited later on, though it was so crowded that I left right away. At that point I just grabbed a Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee and sat in an empty gate area, which was much nicer than the lounge.
So if you’re passing through Terminal C, this restaurant is a great option.
