Cambridge Common has a nice atmosphere, it is a great relaxing place to get proper pub grub and comfort food. It has a very good range of ales!

We live quite close to Cambridge Common and come often we can't be bothered to cook. The selection of beers is good, although there is no ale on the tap. I recommend the cheeseburger sliders and the plate of nachos.

Very friendly and laid back place to enjoy good beer in a room filled with art, great staff and many choices on the menue. A place to meet friends or family. We had really good time. Close to Harvard Squere but not touristy.

Compared to before, I would say that the quality has gone down. The prices have not increased though.

Very nice bar, with at least a dozen different beers on draft. No too far away from Harvard Square, it is less crowded than other bars in the famous square. Certainly worth to stop by.

Ate lunch, so didn't drink so early in the day, but friends with me raved about the beer selection. You can get a sampler with four different tastes that you can pick of leave it up to the restaurant to pick. We had the fried pickles (I thought this was a southern thing!), the grilled chicken & couscous salad, fish... More

My wife and I went for lunch on a weekday - this place had been a favourite haunt of hers in her Harvard days. I had the Smokehouse burger, which was excellent, and mac and cheese bites to start with, which I'd never had before, but would again. My wife had the cous cous and grilled chicken salad - her...
