We have eaten here twice. Both times were very good. There is a good variety on the menu. Something for everyone. This is not gourmet food it is good basic food. If you have children or picky eaters they will like this restaurant. The breakfast is exceptional and a good variety. The burgers are good as well as the appetizers.... More

I was initially impressed by the low prices for their Sunday brunch, then came back for a few beers with a friend and was impressed again by the reasonable prices for their impressive selection of craft beers. Food was about average, beers were way above average, as was the atmosphere. Staff was very friendly!

Always a nice place to grab a bite to eat. Good food reasonable prices. Pub style but nice specials also. Try the mid-eastern platter.

This is nice and close to my daughter's college, so when we drop in for a visit, we usually end up here. The service is friendly, but hit or miss for attentiveness. We have waited some times for awhile to place an order, or for another round of drinks. The food overall is quite good. The fried pickles, the mussels,... More

My husband and I stayed a B & B in the neighborhood and this was suggested to us by our host. It really hit the spot. We wanted something simple and inexpensive after a couple of very full travel days. My husband had the grilled meatloaf dinner and I had the grilled chicken salad with couscous and a light lemon...

My seven year old said I have to review this hangout. We live in cambridge so go like twice a month. Food and cocktails decent quality and good value but not fabulous. Burgers, fries, nachos, buffalo wings. Most entrees and salads on the menu seem heavier than I usually eat, particularly in warmer weather. I don't drink beer but seems... More

Three of us went here for a dinner after a late talk at the university. The beers on tap were very good, although they do not have an imperial IPA to offer. I tries several IPAs that they have and enjoyed them. My dinner was a salad with red beets and fried goat cheese that was delicious followed by the... More

The food is good. Service was good. The place was not crowded (this is for lunch) which was nice for a coworkers/friends lunch. Portion to price value seemed pretty good but there are better burger places in the square.

Great beer. Great service. Tasty, affordable eats. And the Lizard Lounge downstairs (same kitchen, same great selection of beers) is a musical hotbed of awesomeness.
