In North Cambridge, Surprisingly Good Food in Local Pub Atmosphere

If you’re in North Cambridge and you’re looking for a solid non-chain dining experience in a pub environment, Joe Sent Me is a great choice. It’s a bit creaky, and you have to look around to assess your seating choices — at the bar? in a separate dining room? by a window? away in a... read more

Whenever we're in town we make it a point to go to Joe Sent Me. Service is great/friendly. I'm especially fond of the fish & chips. The batter is not the usual overcoat of soggy on the inside dough. It's just this side of tempura. And great portion size.

After visiting Lexington & Concord we ran into this place for lunch. Great find with broad menu. But after changing my mind three times I went for a burger with jalapeños. And what a good choice! Good food priced right.

Tired after a move to Massachusetts, my husband and I went out to what looked like a typical pub in Cambridge. We thought we'd get hamburgers, but the menu was so extensive that we looked it over and wound up with an excellent black bean soup. My husband had a grilled steak salad, and I opted for a cranberry/walnut/goat cheese... More

Last night I met a friend for dinner at "Joe Sent Me" a pub on Mass Ave in Cambridge. There was outdoor seating which was a wonderful thing on an August evening. We each had a different brew on tap and they were great. I enjoyed a turkey tips panini which came with a pickle and cole slaw. My friend... More
