  • 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.
