We ate here during the Ironman event. Sat at the bar as it was very busy. Food was very good, great beer selection. Our bartender was very attentive and friendly.

Visited while in the area for the Seagull Century ride. Great place to load up on carbs. Seriously, the food was great with an interesting menu and delightful drinks

Nice place! Probably the hippest place to eat in Cambridge. I recommend the beer tasting set, which we enjoyed next to some amazing crab cake sandwiches. We also had the strawberry pie, which is kinda mislabeled--much more like a tart. It was just okay.

We went there for dinner or first night in town. The bartender wouldn't talk to you or look you in the eye. The food was over priced for what it was, it was well prepared though. We didn't like it enough to go back during our stay.

The food was decent - I had the crab sandwich patty, but expensive with limited food options. The fries were delicious though! It's a very cute little location, I think it is probably a nice place to get happy hour drinks.

At least three things surface quickly during our lunch: friendly and competent staff, very interesting menu, nice beer selection. Others in our group had wine, and the house white was a good choice. All important for a nice dining experience; though we did lunch, will do dinner also. There is a sincerity in the restaurant’s style (we like our job);... More

Had dinner here with another couple. While I'm not the adventurous type, I got the steak and fries, the rest of the group I was with was quite adventurous. They raved about the food and thought it was excellent. The steak and fries were also very good and the beer was great. It's a good atmosphere, but can be kind... More

There aren't a lot of places for a non-fast food meal in Cambridge, but The High Spot is on the short list for fresh, healthy and interesting possibilities. In the center of the old part of town, it has a pleasant interior and a few outdoor tables. The staff is friendly and efficient. There were a fair number of sandwich... More

09/05 2016. call in advance to check if Gastro Pub and was told yes. Arrived at around 6.00pm and the Pub was reasonably busy. Was taken to our table in an area that was only one more table being used. Waited 10 minutes before anyone came to give us menus. Hostess Rachel apologised for delay. She them got our drinks...
