Recently had a night out at the Gator's Tail Sports Shack and Grill. Loved the atmosphere and gator stuff around the bar. I was really surprised to find such a great menu and so many choices. I tried the burger which was home made and delicious with fresh cut fries....loved the toasted bun and the burger was big and juicy. My girlfriend had the one of the flatbreads that looked awesome and tasted better. The hosts are very accommodating and make you feel welcome. This is my new place to hang out at....can't wait to watch the game on their new huge screen. Seems like there is a lot of regulars which I like. I see they are now the home of Yuk Yuk's Comedy for Cambridge....so I can't wait to check out some great stand up. This place is a hidden gem in Cambridge....but probably not for long.

My wife and I tried this place for the first time on a Sunday evening. It has just recently been renamed "The Gator's Tail". The bar was fairly active, with several TV screens around the bar area, but the dining room not so much, so we had a fairly private dinner. The menu was a mix of road house and bar fare, and we ordered nachos and stuffed jalapenos to start, and I had fish and chips, and my wife had a chicken wrap with salad as a main. The starters were fairly generous portions. The nachos had a good amount of "stuff" on them, with sides of salsa, guacamole, and sour cream. The jalapenos were stuffed with cream cheese and sausage, deep fried with a light batter, and made quite a big meal in themselves. The fish and chips were really done well, the haddock had a nice crispy batter, and the fish was cooked correctly, not over done, with tartar sauce on the side. The chips were simple fries, and everything was served very hot and crisp. The house salad and blue cheese dressing were good, with nice chunks of cheese in the dressing. We don't have a review of the wrap yet, because the portions were quite generous and we took the wrap home. It looked good, though, with chicken, bacon, and cheese. And the service was excellent, the young lady who served us took care of everything, was very attentive and energetic. In fact, when we left, we forgot our take-out container on the table, and the waitress ran outside to catch us before we left the parking lot.
