It was supposed to be excellent food

they said, or someone said, much better than the places around, but that was NOT the case. The burger was OK but nothing more. The price is lower thena many other places around, but the servive was not the best either, so this is not my favorite place in Mass Avenue.

This is my go-to spot when friends and family are looking for a place to catch up and eat. The atmosphere is lively without being noisy, and the food is delicious. Some of the best prices you'll see for what you're getting as well!

My family and I stopped in for burgers...they have several choices and creative ingredients you can choose. It tasted great, with big chunky fries....and for 3 with drinks, the bill was $30.00......and we had great service with seating outside on a pleasant evening....they have a many more choices other than burgers too.

Juicy, flavorful burgers. Good salads. Inventive cocktails. Attentive wait staff. What more could you want in a neighborhood joint?

I have eaten here many times when in the area. The food is very reasonably priced, always consistent and the variety of local beer is top notch. If you become a regular the staff will remember you and know your favorites. I honestly have no complaints, but I honestly avoid the Sunday Brunch. Just not my style.

Nothing too special here but the food is good and the place is welcoming. Had the chicken cordon bleu and it was very good. Decent beer selection as well. Good fro groups and not crowded.

Grabbed lunch at Christopher's while visiting a soon-to-be graduate of Leslie College because it was close and we heard they served a pretty good burger. Both of those are true. We all had burgers and we all thought they were pretty respectable pub fare. There's a pretty extensive gluten sensitive menu as well. Their beer choices are pretty diverse as... More

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 cucumber cocktail and it was perfect.... 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...
