We were lucky to get a table for 2 quickly on a very busy weekend in Cambridge. Nice variety on the menu, reasonable prices and just-right portions. Had the salad with Cajun shrimp and fish/chips. Both delicious. Prompt, happy, friendly service. Thank you!

A bit off the path. We chose blindly and had a great meal. Carrot parsnips soup and a large salad with a crispy salmon filet and sesame dressing. All so fresh and healthy! The burger looked fantastic. Very nice polite waiters.

Great rooftop for summer nights or happy hour. The food os good but not incredible, go there more for a drink than for dinner. Service varies a lot depending if you are going with a group or not.

We had a great lunch on the deck, nice beer, wonderful Chicken Sandwich. The staff were excellent. Great location and the overall experience was outstanding. I enjoyed a couple of pints in the downstairs bar with an outstanding bartender in Brian.
