You can always count on the 99 for good food, free popcorn, one dollar cheese and cracker plate, cold beer or a good drink, and friendly atmosphere. Their salads are excellent as is their baked scrod. They have plenty of Televisions so you can catch whatever sporting event that interests you! There are 99 good reasons to visit the 99!

I really like to go out here, have some dinner and then move from bar to bar and chat with friends. I like the Boston Burger Company to start with and then move on to the bars in the neighborhood.

If you enjoy trying all different ethnic foods this is the place to go. A great place for date night as you can find food, music, shows and great places for a drink. If you're into finding inexpensive books, clothes and treasures try the Goodwill Store, you never know what you might find! I grew up in Davis Square during... More

I enjoy Davis Square. It is clean and safe and there is always something you can do. Their restaurants vary from fast food chains to casual dining. There are also a few shops to pop into.

People love it there especially the younger generation 30-40. There are a lot of places to eat, a movie theater, Johnny D's with great entertainment. I live in Somerville right up the street from Davis Square. There is something for everyone. A pizza place with a bowling alley inside, ice cream shop, starbucks, and bars.

Davis square is a fun place to be. Lots of restaurants and shops. You see people from all walks of life. Very Live and energetic. I have noticed that Boston has lots of areas called squares that people gather and mingle. Highly recommend Davis Square.

Davis Sq. is the best place to live and play in all of the greater Boston area. Tasty. Fun. Cool places to explore. A mix of weird, old, new, classy and tacky. Best coffee shops. A great movie theater with beer and ice cream and really bad art. Families and college kids and hipsters and artists and professionals. Honk and... More

I am a local so Davis Square is where I go for most everything when it comes to entertainment. There are countless restaurants, cafes, bars, theater, a gym, pharmacy. Its considered Tufts students local square but as a resident of the neighborhood it is where everyone congregates. There is a good independent vibe despite many local and national chains. It... More
