These guys were terrible with their service. No one even cared if we got seated or served. The food was cheap stuff one could buy at a local grocery store.

Went here on a the way to the hotel. The hamburgers were very good and if you get there between like 5 and 7 you get half off all your food if you spend $3 on drink (not too hard). It is in the basement and its pretty dark. We were so impressed we went again when we were heading out of town but they were out of beef...(no beef=no hamburger=angry me). If you find yourself in Cambridge go here, but not if you only have one meal there it's not that good.

We had lunch here and found it to be very cozy and quiet. It is in the basement of a building near Harvard. The Grendel Ale is very good and complimented the Grendel Sandwich. There was outside seating but since it was raining and cold, we opted to sit inside. It was crowded. Dr. Who fans will appreciate the Bad Wolf on the wall of the ladies room!

The three if us really enjoyed the lunch specials here - soup and sandwich( tuna melt)
and pulled pork burritos. Sat at the bar and were really looked after. Will stop by again on our next visit to Harvard.

Wasn't anything I'd write home about (or review) :) but the price was right and service was good. They way overcooked their fish but what was I thinking ordering fish at this place. My colleagues dishes seemed better than mine though (burgers, etc). Order beer and enjoy the atmosphere. From previous reviews sounds like there can be a Hells Kitchen atmosphere which sounds entertaining.
