High Spot is small and cosy, with excellent food, drinks, and an expansive craft beer selection. It can be noisy because of the high ceilings and hardwood flours, but it is close enough that this isn't bothersome. There is also an adjacent dining room suitable for larger groups. Food is focused on local and fresh of the season. The oyster... More

There are two rooms. The back has no bar or TV; the front has both but the noise is reasonable. The brew pup food is good except for the chicken pot pie which was chicken and mashed potatoes in an indifferent sauce. Everything else we've eaten there is good especially the Mussels and fish and chips.

Food was fair. Service was adequate. Everything is fried and greasy. French fries were soggy. Fish tacos were boring. Maybe I'm just too old, but it was noisy and unfriendly. Fine if you're going for a beer and fried food. Not what I was hoping for.

This is a small restaurant in downtown Cambridge. The atmosphere is nice and the food, a bit pricey for this area, but excellent.

Love the craft beers and whiskey selection! My husband and I come every year and always make sure to stop in! The staff does talk drama a little too much in front of the guests but if you tone it out you'll have a great time!

Had a good meal here on a quiet Thurs night. Convenient shuttle service from the Hyatt made it our choice for dinner, since it was about 20 degrees with wind chill. Big portions, high prices, but live music was very good and I'd love to come back at Sunset for a beer on the deck - especially when summer finally... More

High Spot A pub with upscale dining in the historic downtown area of Cambridge. There are two dining rooms, one more casual and the other more formal. Service sizes are large. The owner must have have training in chemistry because some staff wear shirts with the periodic table of elements. There is parking on the street and behind the restaurant.

I have had some of the most creative and delicious meals ever hear. I love their grilled caesar salad. Craft beer selection is great.

food is very good some interesting items on menu like buffalo oysters. They have a very good beer menu both bottles and draft. The only real negative is it is very loud and service is just ok
