We've been in 3 times over the past few months and on each occasion, found the food to be excellent. The menu is varied, interesting, and well presented. Our servers have all been wonderful. The atmosphere is extremely unique. It crosses the border on both an intimate pub and high end restaurant. Truly a wonderful experience each time. Would highly... More

We were pleasantly greeted right away by the Bartender/server. Our Waitress was very pleasant and took good care of us. The food & drinks were delicious. We finally found a great restaurant with great service...which is actually harder to find than you may think, in Cambridge.

This place has a great atmosphere and decor to go along with high quality of food with choices for everyone from first dates to foodies on a tour. The servers are fast, charming and eager to please. I really enjoy visiting this local pub. It is suitable for jeans and a shirt, right up to a suit and wedding proposal..... More

Too many cafe's trying too many complex ideas. Keep it simple. Somewhat cluttered for both patrons and servers. Average menu. Service better than the menu options. Somewhat pricey.

The name of the restaurant Cafe 13 Main Street Grill was established in 1980 when the original restaurant opened. We have operated under the same name for 36 years and we are well... More

First of all, I would like to say that I have been going to this establishment for many years and it is a staple in the Cambridge area. With saying that, I want to talk about the owner, Adam Cull and Kendra, who take care of myself and the three other ladies I was with that evening. It was extremely... More

We have visited here a couple times and I really enjoy their food, especially their burgers. Some items are a bit higher priced but everything I have had there I have enjoyed.

My family has been coming here since 1981. While it has changed over the years, we still love it. Recently renovated but still maintaining its charm and history. The food is always awesome as is the service. My husband loves the wings and my current favourite is the Buffalo Caesar wrap with fresh cut awesome fries! We come here every... More
