It was nice to be able to sit outside. Food was good but sangria was mostly fruit juice. Not that great. Service was poor.

Walked down from the Sheraton Commander after a long drive, from Maine, and through tropical storm Arthur. Fun corner bar with pleasant. Staff and a nice open, to the street, seating plan. Limited menu focused on robust snacks such as flat breads and burgers. All the food was tasty and they have a great bar which probably makes it a... More

Service was a bit slow. Very small space and difficult for older folks to sit since majority of the seats are high metal stools. The flatbread with cheddar and onion is very, very good. The turkey meatloaf sandwich appears to be from a block of meatloaf instead of a nice home cooked meatloaf. Prices were reasonable.

Good location is really the best thing I can say about this place. I found this place claustrophobic and uncomfortable. We did have a smiling waitress who was very attentive, bonus. The vegetable frittata was very good but I was confused by the hash browns as they were really diced potatoes? The french toast was bland and lacking in cinnamon... More

We stopped by Tory Row on a Sunday morning before heading back home from Cambridge. We knew we only had a short amount of time and this place came well recommended. The location is right in Harvard Square, very busy. The decor is pretty utilitarian with hardback booth seating along the walls and backless metal stools for the rest of... More

Great place to meet someone for lunch in Harvard Square. It's a casual dining experience. Food is decent - especially the kale salad - and it is worth trying!

Found this place while in Harvard Square. Came in around 6pm on a sunday-Saint Patricks Day, wasn't too crowded. As soon as we walked in the waitress/hostess greeted us and said we can pick anywhere to sit. All of normal tables in the back were taken already, so we opted to sit at the communal long high tables. The atmosphere... More

The location is amazing- smack center of Harvard Square. The restaurant is great for lunch, dinner or a casual gathering with friends. The long benches offer a communal and casual feel to the place. Tory Row is usually busy but I've never had to wait to be seated. In the summer time they offer seating outside (on the sidewalk-patio) from... More

Love the vibe here! Enjoyed the chicken salad, the bacon flatbread, and especially the Spanish cheese plate with fig jam ... Super-nice waitress, good selection of wines by the glass and beers by the (small) glass. A good place to go with your girls on a Friday evening after work.
