Maybe it's the mix of food? Maybe it's the familiar happy faces or the good beer? In any case, this is my go to place in Kendall square for any occasion. The food is exceptional. Don't miss the octopus! The outdoor area is really nice...More

Went there with my wife, daughter and a college friend. At first, very noisy place with a non-stop crying baby. Later on, just very noisy. Food though was excellent! Calamari was very fresh with a sweet and lightly peppery sauce. The burger (medium cooked beef)...More

Stopped in on a warm summer afternoon with my 1 year old. Lobster roll was piled high. Kids “fish sticks” were freshly breaded cod fingers — not your typical kids meal. Shoestring fries were perfect.

I have been there twice in 10 days, the first time for a private event and the second for a birthday celebration. Both food and drinks are great and the service was awesome, that waiter remembered what everyone was drinking at the event!

Go here often for work lunches and happy hours. Always a good choice but was pleasantly surprised to find it open for weekend brunch. Kendall is notoriously short on non-crowded brunch options. Glass House gave standard Boston and Cambridge brunch a run for their money....More

I was around the corner from the Glass House--I Just walked there. The entrance to what I gather was a public underground garage was next door. Impressive retro building.
