What a gem this place is. They typically cater to people that work in the industry hence the late openings on Sunday and Monday. The crew is very diverse and the food selection is just as scrumptious. Make sure you try to house made pop tart. You will not be disappointed. Other than come with an empty stomach and share...

Looking at the outside of Trina's, I really wasn't expecting much. They proved why you don't judge a book by it's cover! I went with a friend for Sunday brunch around 1pm and were seated right away. We shared the creamy corn fritters that were out of this world delicious! Wish we had gotten more of these! For my meal,... More

Super friendly staff and incredible food. I opted for the biscuits and gravy and the wife went with the chicken and waffles. The chicken was done exceptionally well although I didnt care much for the syrup. Theyve got no issue giving you some regular maple if you ask. The biscuits and gravy were phenomenal. I usually judge a place by... More

The Starlight is an small comfortable place. The staff were friendly. Service was quick. The serving was so big I had to take some of it in a left over container. The menu is centered around brunch like items. Yet one can easily find dishes to eat for dinner. My only complaint is the music was a bit loud for... More

We were with a large group--seven--on a Friday night in Cambridge. The variety and vibe of Trina's fit the bill. The fried chicken, wings and fries satisfied the teens, while the mussels, veggie plate, and chili satisfied the adults. I had an arugula salad with goat cheese and pumpkin seeds with a balsamic vinaigrette that was excellent. The food seemed... More

Met family here for dinner and had the best food I've had for a while in Boston. The corn fritters and fried chicken were amazing! Drink selection was also good quality.

What a delicious dinner we had tonight. The corn fritters with a honey maple dipping sauce were delicious. I had the chicken waffle fries with a perfect pepper maple syrup that was better than home cooked. My husband had the haddock with sweet potato hash with spinach and bacon...also perfect. Be sure to try the huge piece of corn bread... More

Trina's has always been reliable for it's staple menu items and hip atmosphere. Personally, I find it reliable for the outstanding service. We sat at the bar and had the same bartender, Thomas, as the last time we visited. He is friendly and knowledgeable and maintains the comfort we look forward to with every dining experience. The food at Trina's... More

We usually enjoy an "adult" beverage before dinner, but at the posted prices, we passed. For appetizers we had Tater Tots, Beef Satay, and Corn Fritters, all very good except for the Price/Value/Portion relationship. Six Corn Fritters (about 1 1/2 inches in size, with a total weight of maybe 3 ounces) at $4. Three Beef Satay sticks $12. Tater Tots... More

This place is pretty good! I assumed it was a bar, but the food is actually really good and not bar food at all. It's a 1950's motif but food that ranges from lamb ragout (that was really good) to sweet and spicy chicken wings to beer mussels. Good place to grab drinks with friends and some good food. Prices...
