We arrived at the High Spot on recommendation of one of the Jimmy&Sooks remodeling staff. Decor is upscale pub, nice t-shirts (beeriotic chart). I ordered fish and chips. Asked about rolls with dinner - I was told no rolls come with dinner. I asked if I could by one or two - told no rolls were available as they don't... More

We enjoy visiting High Spot as they are completely different from anything in town. They play with the classics and throw in their own twist to make it even better. A great selection of craft beer, and bartenders mixing up actual cocktails that follow recipes. They use actual Luxardo Cherries! We always feel like we are back in the city... More

We went here with 15 folks for an after work meeting/dinner. It was really nice, they seated us in a semi-private area in the back where we could see out onto High Street in Cambridge. The place was cozy and nice. My meal was good, I had the breakfast platter for dinner. The bacon was overcooked but they did take... More

Had dinner here with a large group of coworkers. Fun place with a great beer selection. The food however was inconsistent. The angry fries were great but our entrees came out at a cool temperature. They put the hot food on cold plates so I think that was part of the problem. Seems like a fun place to hang out... More

This is the restaurant I'd like to love, but don't. The menu is a little too funky and very little has changed since they opened. Time for a change of menu in this small town, at least change seasonally like Bistro and University Restaurant. It's very popular, and usually crowded. I keep trying it because I like the atmosphere and... More

Stopped by for lunch when passing through Cambridge. Service was attentive and well-informed. The food was quite good. The ABLT sandwich had the most delicious bacon on it. We were told it was made in house. The pork chop special was outstanding. Dessert was a homemade blueberry bread pudding that we gobbled up.

We ate here on the recommendation of locals we met. We were very impressed with the service and food. Prices were very fair for the fresh ingredients used in the entrees. Very impressed with the complete process from seating to wrapping up our leftovers. Will go back when in town.
