“Excellent, fresh dishes!! Favorites, Burgers, Fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

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.

“Great Burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Ate here while my daughter was visiting Harvard. Great burger and a good assortment of beers on tap. Nice to sit near the fireplace as well.

Service was OK, but not terribly attentive.

Fries are really potato wedges, so if you are with a kid who is expecting fast food style fries (some are picky about that), then try another place.

Otherwise, it is worth stopping in for sure.

“Busy Burgers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

This is a constantly busy place, a staple of Porter Square. The burgers are best here, and the ever changing draft beer list is fun. Cheap and cheerful place, with good people watching.

“Meh !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

To escape the depression that a Sunday night brings along (read: end of the weekend) we decided to have dinner here. The ambiance was good and to my surprise the place was almost full. Our server was nice. Although the food took less than average time to get to our table, it was not warm. It did not taste fresh and we figured most of it would have been pre-made or frozen. Well, me and my friend did not complain as we had our eyes on the dessert. So we get the bread pudding and molten lava cake and the bread pudding is again not warm. Really !? Not only was the temperature wasn't right, but it tasted old. I don't think we will be going back again !!

“A Good Burger”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We went here after a high school football game. the place is usually packed on a Friday night but not so this time. We were seated in a both, ordered our burgers and had a beer. The beer was not super cold but cold enough and they offered a sample of the pumpkin ale from Cambridge Brewing. It had a not great after taste so we stuck with Sierra Nevada. The mushroom burgers were very good and cooked as ordered. The restaurant was a bit cold and the food was only warm. So not super cold beer and not super hot burgers = ok rating.
