Description: Opened in 1996, Grafton Street Pub & Grill has been a beloved institution of Harvard Square for almost two decades. This neighborhood hotspot is named after the spirited cobblestone-lined shopping district in Dublin's famed Temple Bar area. Grafton Street deftly combines the warmth and coziness of a traditional neighborhood pub with the aesthetic of a contemporary restaurant. During the summer months, guests can enjoy al fresco dining on Grafton Street's spacious sidewalk patio. The restaurant offers full bar service and boasts a seasonally-changing wine list with over 75 varieties, as well as a robust selection of craft beers from several local breweries.

We ate outside on the sidewalk which was was perfect. We got there early so parking on the street on a Sunday was easy. The server said the lobster Mac and cheese was rich (it was), and salmon was cooked perfectly. The chef cooked off the menu for my son (age 13), and charged a very reasonable price. We have been there before and it is a good spot.

A large group of us went during one summer evening for some drinks and a side bite, and it proved to be a good decision. Place has a nice vibe with plenty of people (our group was multinational from every world continent), so we've merged with them. Place has a nice terrace overlooking nice streets and street crossing. Service was a bit on a slower side, but it didn't bother us too much. Grill dishes are great, so all you grill lovers can enjoy some nice combos.

Paul, the bartender is the most thoughtful and attentive waiter that I have ever met. This is my favorite place for lunch while working on the fog art museum

We had dinner at Grafton Street with our grandson and one of our friends. Our friend is very familiar with the area and he thought Grafton Street was a good spot for dinner with a 6 year old. He was right. The menu had lots of options for adults and kids as well. Our server was very attentive to our grandson which helped the dining experience. We ordered a couple flat bread pizzas and a couple burgers. The pizzas could serve two people for an appetizer. As a dinner entrée we took half of it home. The burgers were large and juicy. We enjoyed our meal very much and the service was excellent.
