Cambridge Common, Cambridge

4.0
#4 of 7 in Parks in Cambridge
Cambridge Common is a comfy, welcoming neighborhood restaurant offering our celebrated comfort food, huge portions, cheap prices, and a full bar with 30 beers on tap (well, 31 when the Cask is on), 16 of which rotate like nobody's business, always one organic brew, a kick-ass bottle or two, and a sizzlin' burger for only $4.95. Often the first spot in New England to introduce the latest and greatest microbrews, Cambridge Common has been referred to by the Alstrom Bros (a.k.a. the Beer Advocates) as “our allies in the war on crap beer.” Our large bar, inviting wooden booths, and warm lighting, combined with our uber-friendly staff, have made us a local hotspot and cozy hangout. Cambridge Common is also home of the intimate and funky Lizard Lounge, offering live music nightly.

As the folks at Hungry? Boston, the Lowdown on Where the Real People Eat, say, “everybody goes home happy from Cambridge Common.”

  • This is a family favorite, especially since my oldest son has deemed this his favorite restaurant. He loves their burger. I think he wolfed it down tonight in about 5 minutes. Ha! And they have hands-down the best veggie burger in the Cambridge-Boston area. It is so delicious. This is the kind of restaurant where you want to try everything on the menu, and when you do - it's all done well.
  • Great service and beer variety, but food quality has taken a dive. Broccoli in cheddar broccoli soup was uncooked, and there was more lettuce in the fish and chips than there were actual fish and chips. Lettuce wasn't in the description, it was just a cheap way to fill up space while cutting back on what I actually ordered. Would come back for the drinks and attentive service, but will skip food next time.
