We were looking at the menu outside Atwood's when a passerby said 'Go there, it's brilliant' - so we did. That night and the following night! The food was really good, generous helpings, original and quite delicious. Service also very attentive. Additional bonus was the music - the blue grass band sat in a circle in the middle of the room and clearly just enjoyed what they were doing. It was a great evening.

We stopped into this low-key East Cambridge spot on a Saturday for lunch. There was a small group there, evidently a few regulars and a few others like us, looking for a quick nosh. They have a nice selection of brews on tap as well as a good assortment of bottles and a full bar. We tried the grass-fed beef burger (they also have a turkey and a veggie) which is locally raised -- well, West Brookfield, which isn't too far away. It was cooked to order, a nice size and with a good beefy taste. The crispy pork belly with grits and brussels sprouts was amazing. A big slab of tender-crispy belly, creamy grits and roasted sprouts that you'd probably pay $25 or $30 for in Harvard Square. Here, a mere $15. An excellent value. We also tried the chocolate pudding. It's more like a cross between a dense chocolate mousse and an ice cream. Simply delicious.

Atwood's offers live music most nights. We'll be back to enjoy the laid-back atmosphere (in other words, the paint could be touched up a bit) and to work our way through their menu of comfort food.

A group of 4 were in town on course and based upon reviews we went for dinner and drinks. We had a great time - service was excellent and food was very good. Definitely recommend. As a plus one of our group left their wallet at the pub. When we returned an hour later staff had the wallet and all cash and cards were there too. We were grateful for the integrity of the patrons and staff who found

The title pretty much says it all. This is an excellent place to hang out, chat with a friend, grab some high end pub fare and choose from a massive selection of craft beers. The space is cozy - lots of wood, and low lighting - and the live music is usually excellent and cheap (often just $5). Highly recommended.

Kate just moved a block down the street. We stopped in last night for a drink before going to dinner elsewhere. Great bar, great beer and spirits selection.

After helping out at the new apartment today, we went for lunch. Jim had the turkey burger and fries, I had the veggie burger and fries and Kate had the hamburger and arugula salad. Everything was fresh! The beer was great and all were satisfied.

Very good local place!

Thank Marty S
