    Try the crispy mussels: Freed from their shells, they are battered and fried into crisp, juicy bites, intermingled with sweet-tart pieces of preserved lemon, also battered and fried, Read more

    I recommend going and sitting at their great U-shaped bar. The bartenders are really friendly and skilled. Smoky cocktails. I don't usually get food here, but their Caesar salad is very yummy.

    Ask to sit in the library section. Very Harvard and preppy east coast like. Great section of local beers on tap. For food, you can't go wrong with the potato wedges!

    It has 4 areas: Den w/ books; Classroom w/ fireplace & board; tavern w/ leather booths; and back room.... great drinks & food. Try the Roasted Beets, Salt & Pepper Shrimp and The Bacon 3 Way.

    "Patty Melt: Reuben, grilled cheese & hamburger melted on rye. Crisp bread on the outside and terrifically oozy Cholula-spiked sautéed onions, Russian dressing, and American cheese inside."

    The Bar Steak is last-meal-on-earth worthy. The potatoes that come with it and the salad are perfect. The Fuzzy Logic beer on tap is excellent, too.

    Have an Irish Coffee made with a special magical recipe by Luke. It isn't sugary sweet (though there is whipped cream involved).Very nice indeed on a chilly winter night.

    Bacon 3-ways. Cheese plate. Brisket. Sorbet. I just had the best - and most unexpected - meals of my life. Oh, and order the Berkshire Brewing offering.

    The slow roast brisket with collard greens and warm corn bread was so delicious ! It's a must have for sure 😋

    Salt and pepper shrimp was simple and really good. Mac and cheese was average. Beets were surprisingly great!

    Caramel used grapefruit and beefed corn hash Benedict were amazing!!! Pass on the waffles - really boring waffles with fruit that I could make at home.

    Excellent wings! Crispy on the outside and tender & juicy on the inside. I rarely find a place that get's that combo right : )

    Was underwhelmed by their meat pie, chickpea burger, and salad. Also don't get the cheese plate unless you love cheese because they give you great cheese complimentary!
  • Lauren C.
    Best cocktails in the square! Also, try the chocolate cake. It's sooooo good. And big, so more than enough for two people.

  • Alexandros P.
    Big portions but not impressed at all with the sauces & fatty sides that were accompanying almost all the dishes. Fried chicken with sauce and mac & cheese??? Didn't try the cocktails, good service

    Don't get the lobster and crab dip. They have unlabeled celery and the chips are way oversalted!
