Wonderful Waitstaff

The waitstaff pointed out all vegan (it helped he was a vegan himself) options. I had the vegan burger with carrots as a side. To be honest I was not thrilled about the carrot option, but they were grilled, well-seasoned, and delicious. The vegan burger was good. It was not my only option, but I... read more

Based on others' positive reviews, my friend and I decided to give this place a try. It opens at 11:30am. We arrived at noon and there was already a 30-minutes wait. They took my cell number and texted me when the table is ready. I liked that. After we sat down, my friend tried a cucumber/lime/vodka concoction (a drink). She... More

A cute neighborhood pub that opens onto the street. Service can be spotty. Highly recommend the homemade pretzel and chicken sandwich. Did not care for the wings as they were very smokey.

Inventive food, Prompt service. Good, fun drinks. Went there with a large group and had brunch/lunch. A favorite hangout, My son had a burger which he described as "good" I had a salad that had a good mix of greens and veggies. Nice place. Bathrooms are downstairs so be aware if you have anyone in your group with mobility issues.

omerville is a small student town so this restaurant totally fits here. Fantastic burgers and sandwiches in a nice sporty atmosphere. A little too sophisticated on the beer menu for my taste but Really good food. Simple and tasty!!!

My brothers and our wives have been meeting at different Davis Square restaurants for the last few years and I think this is one of the more fun stops we've had. Menu isn't real extensive, but there seemed to be some casual plates for everyone's interest. We got the appetizers for the table - muscles, cornbread and brussel sprouts. All... More

This place certainly known for their beer selection. Not sure how many beers they have on tap, but it is a lot. The food was good as well. We had wings as an appetizer and I had a burger and their jalapeño mash potatoes Yum!! Great bar food and great place to hang out and meet for drinks with friends.

Place with tons of craft beers which attracts the 20 something hipster crowd. Food is standard bar food nothing worth mentioning. The servers were very good and pleasant.

This place came incredibly highly recommended and unfortunately I was very disappointed. As someone who worked in the restaurant industry for many years, I was completely offended and shocked by their terrible customer service and poor management. Their manager was condescending, rude, and completely unaccommodating. I will never go back.
