    As a scientist I got a real kick out of coming to this place! Their menu is a chalkboard periodic table!! I got the veggie burger and it was delicious.

    Enjoy the space, the beer, and the amazing "periodic table" of food to order from...the fried potatoes are to die for! Cooked in a cast iron skillet to perfection!

    Chicken skewers beat the burger for taste. Get two to be able to construct your own flour tortilla wrap with beans and salad.

    Order a shot...you'll get your money's worth and then some. Careful, if you're an-out-of towner you'll be surprised to learn they close promptly at 1a.

    Cute way to display the menu in a periodic table format. Solid bar to grab a drink with friends in Cambridge.

    If you like spicy, the Ronie Burger here is great with jalapeño ground into the burger and Jack cheese on top.

    This geek-chic bar’s claim to fame rests in its periodic table chalkboard menu that hangs on the wall behind the bar. The place draws a mixed crowd of computer wonks, scientists, and artists. Read more

    Ronie burger was indeed very good. Nice spice level. Brownie and ice cream for dessert was great.

    One to hit for the scientists - they'll appreciate the kitschy lab decor though the service is good as well.

    This is why I love it here. I'm sipping a tasty IPA, listening to Michael Jackson, and watching the Lakers game. Oh...and a Nobel Laureate is sitting 2 seats down from me at the bar. No biggie.

    Sadly, this was a huge disappointment. The food was mediocre - at best. Good place for a drink (maybe), but the place is tired. Specifically, the kale salad was tired. burgers were nothing special

    Burger was fantastic and the potatoes with the sundried tomato purée was equally good.

    Unbearably loud, but somehow still exactly the same now as it was when I was in college a million years ago. I give it a pass based on the nostalgia factor alone.

    Hate the chips & salsa, they are straight out of a bag. Wish they made their own, it wouldn't be hard. Prob won't ever eat here again, & wish they had a house drink for their bar theme.
