Been here a few times with the gf and we are in love with this place. Besides the wide selection of beers, the food here is so good. The oysters, nachos, fish and chips, and fish sandwich have all been amazing. The lobster mac and cheese though was ok...It was good but we wished there was some more lobster in... More

On my own and needing to find a open friendly place for an evening meal the Orleans fitted my needs perfectly. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food well cooked and tasty, the wine from a wide selection just right. The only thing missing was the ability to produce a coffee, just something they do not do. Overall a... More

I took my college age daughter and 2 friends out to dinner at Orleans - and first should say the the total bill for the 4 of us was not too bad, given the appetizers, entrees and drinks we ordered (for those over 21). They offer lots of standard stuff like burgers and pizza, but we went a bit further... More

Very convenient to theatre in davis square and parking is across the street from this restaurant. Service was good and friendly. I had butternut squash raviolis and they were delicious and even served hot. I was with three other people and they all enjoyed their meal.

Ate at Orleans on a Friday evening with a girlfriend (both 50-something). While the crowd tends more toward the twenty-somethings, and it can get a little loud on weekends, I certainly felt comfortable. Food was good and reasonably priced. Had the fish tacos. Yum.

We were there for the pasta special night (Monday). It was fantastic. I practically licked the plate clean. The outdoor deck was perfect on a warm evening with a slight breeze. The wait staff was good.
