After a long flight from Dublin to Boston we arrived at our rented holiday accommodation in Medford and on arrival asked if there was anywhere nearby where we could eat. Through a misunderstanding we walked all the way to Davis Square, Somerville, which took about an hour, rather than to Medford Square, which would have been less than 10 minutes.... More

We had such a great dinner at Foundry on Elm last month! The place is located right in the heart of Davis Square, which makes it super convenient for anyone visiting Somerville. It's also surprisingly attractive -- much more than we expected when we first walked in. There's a bar up front, along with a number of tables (as well... More

We've been to the Foundry 4 times in the last month. We tend to go during the week when it's less crowded. It's better than bar food but not quite upscale restaurant fare. The steak frites are good and so are the burgers including the "best burger' nominee. For appetizers, try the Buffalo Balls and the Poutine. The Poutime is... More

I’ve reviewed this place previously, and this is a regular place for us on a Friday after work. It's generally a good place if a bit busy, and I haven't had many complaints before. However, they have entered the Boston’s best burger competition with their Chef’s Number 15 burger. When I ordered it they didn’t ask how I would like... More

This is one of my and my friends favorite Davis Square bars. We frequently meet here for drinks. They have a great liquor selection and the bartenders are very knowledgeable. The first time I ate here a few years ago I absolutely love the shrimp gumbo and hush puppies. Since then, the head chef and menu have changed a few... More

Stopped by for a delicious croque monsieur at the Foundry. Davis Square is hopping, and this is a hopping place. Lively, friendly, a pub with a really excellent kitchen, whether for a main course dinner or just a phenomenally well-prepared toasted sandwich. And great service!

I was looking for a more upscale restaurant in Davis Square and settled on the Foundry given the reviews. It may be the most upscale in the Square, but not by any other definition. Food was decent, not great, room crowded and noisy with many TV sets going. Definitely geared towards college students and young professionals looking for a pub... More

Had dinner here with my wife and daughter after seeing a cousin in a play a few doors down. We found much to choose from on the menu. I had a croque monsieur and my wife had moules frites, each of us no doubt recalling times in France), and my daughter stayed American with the burger. It's a noisy place,... More

The Foundry on Elm, with its basement location provides a great atmosphere for after work gathering and the sampling of good beer and liquor. The menu changes on a daily basis with numerous specials. The food is good, not great, but good. I would recommend the "Devil's on Horseback", and the "Cheese Plate". It is a great place to kick... More
