Great place for a drink and much before heading for more serious dinner. Good atmosphere too and great location. Had the cheese quesadilla and the salsa was yummy, not too hot but with a bit of a kick!

My younger son loves the fact that the menu is written out as the periodic table, but as others have commented, the theme is not carried beyond the chalkboard. It is still a very cute idea, and the place has a nice college town atmosphere.

Burgers & beers were great but the skewered options weren't as consistent. Not bad, but simple. Prices are low and service is quick & friendly, so not really a complaint. Mixed drinks were not good, so do stick with beer.

They did not have A/C running when we ate there on an excessively hot & humid night, so be forewarned if you like A/C.

We went to the Miracle of Science hoping to find a quirky bar heavy on the science theme (my husband studied chemistry). We were disappointed to find the only science thing was the menu and the name.

The food was good, the beer was good, but it was nothing really special, we felt they could have done so much more by providing drinks in glass beakers, wine in conical flask as decanter, test tube condiments etc.

MIT students and staff plus scientists from nearby pharmaceutical research facilities both feel at home in this nerdy bar. The menu is organized like the Periodic Table of Elements. The burgers are great, service good and it is part of my "Boston Tour" and a place to eat with friends. My 23 year old loves this place.

It is a decent bar, with good beer and burgers etc. Nothing special, often crowded and you have to wait for a seat. Also can get noisy there.
