A lovely restaurant with a nice variety of food for every taste. Very friendly and helpful waitresses. Fabulous cream of crab soup!! I don't know what they add to it (nutmeg?) but it won the crab soup contest on our recent getaway. Check out the history too - Ella Fitzgerald and a number of other famous musicians have been there!!

We visited the High Spot in Cambridge last night for dinner after we discovered that the restaurant where we planned to dine was closed on Tuesday evenings temporarily. We arrived close to 7pm to a jam packed restaurant. I should preface this review with the fact that I have eaten at High Spot on 2 other occasions and never experienced... More

We ate here during the Ironman event. Sat at the bar as it was very busy. Food was very good, great beer selection. Our bartender was very attentive and friendly.

Visited while in the area for the Seagull Century ride. Great place to load up on carbs. Seriously, the food was great with an interesting menu and delightful drinks

Great food and beer for Ironman weekend! Warm welcome and we were able to use our Ironman coupons with no issues. We will be back!

Nice place! Probably the hippest place to eat in Cambridge. I recommend the beer tasting set, which we enjoyed next to some amazing crab cake sandwiches. We also had the strawberry pie, which is kinda mislabeled--much more like a tart. It was just okay.

We went there for dinner or first night in town. The bartender wouldn't talk to you or look you in the eye. The food was over priced for what it was, it was well prepared though. We didn't like it enough to go back during our stay.

The food was decent - I had the crab sandwich patty, but expensive with limited food options. The fries were delicious though! It's a very cute little location, I think it is probably a nice place to get happy hour drinks.

At least three things surface quickly during our lunch: friendly and competent staff, very interesting menu, nice beer selection. Others in our group had wine, and the house white was a good choice. All important for a nice dining experience; though we did lunch, will do dinner also. There is a sincerity in the restaurant’s style (we like our job);... More

Had dinner here with another couple. While I'm not the adventurous type, I got the steak and fries, the rest of the group I was with was quite adventurous. They raved about the food and thought it was excellent. The steak and fries were also very good and the beer was great. It's a good atmosphere, but can be kind... More
