“Pitcher and a beer for $11 in Cambridge??”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

Had been to Newtowne before but went again recently with family. This place is in Cambridge but is definitely more of a "locals" spot, or "townies" as the previous reviewer stated. The prices are great and so is the beer and drink selection. Great place to watch sports as they have a number of TV's. If I lived in Cambridge this would absolutely be my regular spot. Service is good as well, and they have an everyday special of a pitcher of beer(PBR I think) and a whole pizza for $11! Did I mention the pizza is actually decent as well? In conclusion, yeah I pretty much love this place.

“Great "townie" bar - one of our favorite local spots”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

If you know what "townie" means, then you'll know what kind of place this is. Great drinking spot to shack up with some friends in a booth and put down pitchers of your typical beers. Also a great place for trivia on Thursday nights, where a pitcher of domestic and a large cheese pizza will cost you $10 or so.

this is review is for the billerica one. Worst service ever, but it was their first week. I'll maybe go back in like 6 months when they get the kinks worked out.
