We went right around 5ish and it was already packed with one or two tables open. But when we walked in there was not hostess so we lost one table by the entrance but then we flagged a waiter and sat us right away. The food was excellent and plenty of it. I'm still full just thinking about it. I... More

All the great things I heard about Atwood's are true. A great selection of beers including many local brewers just getting started. A very difficult decision to limit it to 2 or 3. The New Orleans Fish Stew was really well done, brimming with seafood and rice. It had a really nice bite to it but not overwhelming. I would... More

Atwood's features a variety of appetizers and main dishes, and a large number of beers. The main attraction for me was the "psycho-bluegrass" band playing during dinner. Featuring mandolin, upright bass, guitar, and banjo, the band played a variety of uptempo bluegrass classics along with some other songs (such as "Foxy Lady") with a bluegrass twist. Another band was setting... More

You walk inside out of the chilly streets of Cambridge and immediately feel the warmth. The bar and tables are all a warm, honey brown wood that just feels good when you see it. I met up with a friend and we were quickly greeted and allowed to choose whatever table we liked. Service is friendly but never pushy. After... More

We were looking at the menu outside Atwood's when a passerby said 'Go there, it's brilliant' - so we did. That night and the following night! The food was really good, generous helpings, original and quite delicious. Service also very attentive. Additional bonus was the music - the blue grass band sat in a circle in the middle of the...

We stopped into this low-key East Cambridge spot on a Saturday for lunch. There was a small group there, evidently a few regulars and a few others like us, looking for a quick nosh. They have a nice selection of brews on tap as well as a good assortment of bottles and a full bar. We tried the grass-fed beef... More

A group of 4 were in town on course and based upon reviews we went for dinner and drinks. We had a great time - service was excellent and food was very good. Definitely recommend. As a plus one of our group left their wallet at the pub. When we returned an hour later staff had the wallet and all... More

The title pretty much says it all. This is an excellent place to hang out, chat with a friend, grab some high end pub fare and choose from a massive selection of craft beers. The space is cozy - lots of wood, and low lighting - and the live music is usually excellent and cheap (often just $5). Highly recommended.

Kate just moved a block down the street. We stopped in last night for a drink before going to dinner elsewhere. Great bar, great beer and spirits selection. After helping out at the new apartment today, we went for lunch. Jim had the turkey burger and fries, I had the veggie burger and fries and Kate had the hamburger and... More

In town visiting our daughter who took us to this great tavern. Lots of beers on tap. We ate in the beer garden, a truly cool "outdoor room". My husband and I drank delish CBC ipa. The menu was super fun. I had pork belly, cheesy grits, and brussel sprouts. My husband had grilled cheese and tomato soup. Our daughter... More
