Food was great.. Service...Eh

As the title says, the food was your average classic pub fare. Not a huge menu unless you like endless options for a cheeseburger. I ordered a chicken sandwich with avocado and it was pretty tasty. Large portions, however I ate it all in one setting! The drinks were delicious. I ordered the organic... read more

Christopher's is a cute bar/restaurant in Porter Sq. Cambridge. It's located right across the street from the Porter Sq. Red Line stop. The location is great. It's nice and cozy inside. I sat by the fireplace. The menu offers delicious pub fare and some nice entrees & specials. I had the Parmesan crusted cod which was good. My friend got... More

I got the Toad burger (not made out of toad) with bacon and tomato on it, it was bomb! The burger was juicy and not overly salty, the crispy onions were great and that sauce that they have on it, damn... it was delicious the service was great too and they got us a table right in front of the...

My wife and I have eaten here quite a few times. The selection is pretty eclectic, the food is good and reasonably priced. The place always seems to be busy and we typically go on a Wednesday...can't imagine what it's like on the weekends. You really can't go wrong because the menu is varied enough that find several different items... More

I normally would go for a regular burger but decided to try the turkey burger. It was okay, but my husband ordered the veggie burger and it was delicious! The restaurant was busy, however, we were able to get seated rather quickly. The prices were reasonable and they had a pretty large selection of different things on the menu. It... More

This place is one of the main attractions of Porter Sq, its got a great menu and the bar has a good beer selection. They can seat big and small parties, and you get a pretty decent meal. The Its also a great brunch spot when the mood hits you. If you find yourself in the neighborhood check it out.

Met a friend here for dinner on a Monday a 5 p.m. Sat outside; the traffic noise was preferable to the loud pop music inside. ("Oh, Ricky you're so fine....) We both ordered house salads, which are on the large side. The ranch dressing needs more seasoning to make it work over the greens, and why didn't she bring the... More

I love Christopher's. It has many things I look for in a restaurant/bar and for that reason I return again and again: Consistently GOOD food with a lot of variety on the menu, great beer selection, low key but good service and a nice bar scene as well. Their veggie burger is really great and so are their regular burgers,... More

I love Christopher's, especially during the warmer weather when we can sit outside on the patio. The meals are fresh, delicious and at a reasonable price too. I'm always delighted with the service, quality and fresh ingredients. They also have an extensive beer and wine list.
