    DOUBLE LOBSTER ROLL, ALL THE WAY. Cheap too for the city.

    Want to eat outside but not be crowded by beer garden? Eat out front.

  • Leigh M.

    Old favorite, with old-time prices, chicken kebab never varies. The upstairs restroom conditions are unspeakable though

    Cheeseburgers are good for the price and they have some good crafts on tap.

    Alex Dobyan · December 4, 2014

    Divey place, fast service, good selection of beer, and cheap! Best part is that it accepts credit cards, has a lot of transportation options around, and feels very lively.

    Solid burger. Cambridge staple.

    This Harvard Square mainstay includes a sidewalk patio, an upstairs lounge boasting “the best jukebox in Cambridge,” and a year-round (weather permitting) beer garden offering 18 draught beers. Read more

    This place is a gem. You can't beat the atmosphere and food for their prices! They have an entire menu page dedicated to kale dishes. Phenom!

    Brittany Oakes · October 12, 2014

    Sit outside on the patio and watch the game - any game - on a chilly autumn day with any of their hot ciders or toddys.

    Sonia Miller · September 8, 2014

    Get drunk outside and soak it up with a bacon bleu cheese burger. Worked for me.

    Adam Sigel · August 8, 2014
  • Ryan W.

    Portions are a bit smaller than expected when I've gone, but it always leaves me satisfied and not overfull like most places.

  • Leah N.

    Awesome, Awesome spot. Loved the outdoor secret-gardeny patio and fire pits. 3.75 PBR, not terrible.

    Service was fantastic. Brittany was attentive and smiled the whole time. There was one male manager who kept walking around and staring at all the tables. Very uncomfortable! Never smiled. No good!!!!

    George Denlike · June 26, 2014

    Get the burger! Went here before a concert and I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised. We were pressed for time and the service was good and quick. I've been thinking about the burger ever since!

    Often frequent this place for fries and a veggie burger if I get off a plane too late.

    Favorite Cambridge bar!! Cannot wait to go back. Great jukebox and people.

    The "homemade" clam chowder is HORRIBLE!!! Very bland and flavorless, tasted identical to water. Save yourself the misery and don't get it. But good burgers and fries and friendly staff!

    Angela · December 29, 2013

    Open late and dirt cheap.

    Mary Anne Rodis · December 8, 2013

    $13 for a double lobster roll. Eat one, and take the other home for later. Or just eat both. I don't care.

    Chris Dunn · October 15, 2013
  • Alyssa M.

    Do not get the black bean burger. Ew. Good beer though!

    Alyssa Marshall · October 12, 2013

    Beer garden.

  • Sergio M.

    Tjebservice con TVE patio is awful! Don't ask for the gin & tonic!

    Sergio Martinez · September 14, 2013
  • Jovan M.

    Best thing worth trying would definitely have to be the clam chowder.

    Jovan M · August 15, 2013
  • Paul C.

    Fish and chips are excellent the lobster is like 15 bucks cheaper than red house next door. Wear your cool clothes, it's got that vibe.

    Paul Choza · August 12, 2013
  • Jason J.

    I really enjoyed the double guacamole cheeseburger with the chips and salsa.. Just mash it all together to make a massive burger... Definitely sit I. The beer garden if the weather is nice!

    Jason Jenkins · August 12, 2013
  • Andrew W.

    Get the lobster burger. It's incredible.

    Andrew Walters · August 11, 2013
  • Ken W.

    The ultimate chicken parm sandwich isn't. American cheese on bad cutlet. Ugh

    Ken Winell · August 9, 2013
  • AJ G.

    Awesome place to drink outside

    AJ Garron · August 4, 2013
  • EastCoast S.

    Don't wear flip flops. The bathrooms get real gross at the end of the night and you can never tell if your standing in water, someone's spilled drink or a puddle of piss.

    EastCoast Steffie · July 29, 2013
  • Laura P.

    Probably the most eclectic mix of people you will find drinking together on a Friday night in Cambridge.

    If the outside bathroom line is long, head upstairs to use the facilities. You'll almost always beat the line!

    Matt P · June 16, 2013

    Charlie's Kitchen has the best jukebox in town. It's upstairs, though incidentally, they also rock a solid patio upon which to drink and eat double-lobster-roll-for-$12 specials during the day. Read more

    I love the beer garden

    Excellent place with good beers and nice atmosphere. We didn't try the food but it looked delicious.

    Antonio · May 6, 2013

    Double cheeseburger with American, side of beer fries... all for under $10.

    Wicked beer garden

    Cheapest lobster roll you'll find... Anywhere, I reckon!!

    Danielle Robotz · March 6, 2013
  • Barbara K.

    I love it here. It's dive-ish, has a punk rock feel. It managed to be alway full and yet relaxed. There's a lobster sandwich that makes my water. May it exist forever. Go there, so it does!

    Barbara Kremen · March 3, 2013
  • Joe D.

    Get a variation of the bacon double cheeseburger with the chorizo mac & cheese "bun." Top the whole thing off with guacamole for a dollar extra, and you'll be living life right.

    Joe Diaz · March 1, 2013
  • Jackiez G.

    $4 Jameson pours. FOUR DOLLARS.
