“Took forever.”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

We went on a slower night, our wait was 20+ minutes longer than the 20 they predicted, and the food took 30+ minutes. It was good, but it was really just American Food with a good beer selection. Not that great for dates maybe friends. I'd try here on a weekday it gets crowded fast on the weekend.

“Great Place For Craft Beers”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Located near Tufts University in Sommerville, MA, the place was packed on a recent Friday night in November. The selection of craft beers on tap, and in bottles, may be one of the best in Boston. The food was surprisingly good. Avery substantial and well cooked fish stew, a better than average macaroni and cheese (of all things), large tasty burgers. The wait can be rather long at night, but a few of the craft beers help the time go by.

“Professional friendly servers, great good and atmosphere”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

The bar staff really know their stuff - and with the ludicrously large selection of beers, they have to! I went on a Friday night. The place was busy, with a great atmosphere. Food is very good. Highly recommended.
