Great eclectic food and interesting drinks. Wonderful service. Food was amazing. Got the mushrooms on toast and the tuna tartare for dinner, came back for lunch the next day and had the English Pea salad.

Worth going for the absolutely amazing craft beer menu, including some rarities. Although the food ranged from very good to excellent, ignore the ridiculous suggestion of "tater tots" as a side dish (frozen, not homemade). Servers are somewhat condescending.

Food was good from chicken sandwich to duck sandwich and beverages. The service was good also it was far better than m3 right down the street. Cold breeze made it a bit bad. It was open for lunch.

I want to love this menu. Mouth-watering flavor pairings, inspiration from Mexico to Vietnam, and clever puns like the Pea Diddy salad. But every time I eat here, I'm sorely disappointed. Burnt buns, over-salted ingredients, meagre two-egg brunch plates. However, the beer selection really is excellent, and it's a great spot to enjoy a pint (or a pitcher) al fresco... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Davis Square. The craft beer selection is awesome and wide ranging with lots of local brews as well as delicious "visitors." The food is excellent. As a vegetarian I often have a hard time finding veggie options other than a portabello mushroom burger or a veggie wrap but this place has inventive... More

The menu has a huge assortment of beers, some with pretty interesting names. When our group arrived, close to 20:30hrs on a Thursday, we had a 10 min wait for a well placed table. The waitresses were very friendly and quick. In general highly recommended. It can be reached through a short 5 minute walk from the Red T-Line Davis... More

A great brunch option. Fantastic Bloody Mary's. They won't rush you, but when it is busy it can be hard to get a waiter's attention. But overall I recommend it!

First off, if you plan on eating here on a Friday or Saturday, I’d recommend making a reservation. All the restaurants in and around Davis Square have become insanely popular in the past few years. Their menu is unique and inventive, and they have an excellent beer and whisky selection (I was able to find Hobgoblin ale, on draft, outside... More

Every time I go into Five Horses I am impressed by not just their food, but their beer menu as well. For starters I love the pork belly and toro furioso tacos, both have great texture and flavor. For dinner you can't go wrong with the Kentucky Fried Cornish Hen or the hanger steak, good size portions that can be... More

The first time I came here was Feb 2011 and I don't think I'll never not bring anyone here if they're visiting Somerville for the first time. I always go to the calamari (great mango and chili pepper added makes it superb), and the buttermilk ranch is the best side for thejuiciest and crunchiest fried chicken tenders you'll ever have....
