    Really good experience. Our party of 5 was given a spacious table by city standards (we were given a table for 6 rather than squeezed into a table for 4). Enough room between tables to feel like your conversation was private. Definitely loud, so you had to speak at a higher volume but not loud in a way that makes you brain tired or caused the kids to cover their ears. Server and host were very nice and friendly, helpful with questions about the menu. Food was solid/good but not amazing. Not for a foodie but pretty much anyone else should be satisfied. My salmon was nicely cooked - cooked through but very juicy with a nice flavorful crisp on the outside. Great large windows that were opened for ventilation. I was appreciative of the extra ventilation leading into my family’s holiday season. Temperature inside was comfortable even with open windows. I would go there with my family again.

    Food seems to be Cisco cafeteria food not prepared in house—burgers and fried fish seemed frozen premade. A lot of folks who eat here seem to be at work events/traveling…but if you’re paying on your own dime, you’ll probably regret it. This place is much worse than Cambridge Commons, which has a similar vibe.

    Delicious organic comfort food and micro craft brews. I suggest the fish catch of the day. Order four flights to sample several new beers. Order a yard stick if you and friends all want the same beer. Dog bowls outside. Outside dining all year for social distancing. Family friendly and fun birthday party events

    Good spot for our fantasy football draft with fast wifi and large beer towers that were great for a large group. However, we had an extremely rude server who 1. Complained about setting up a table because folks were ordering at the bar before our reservation, 2. Told us we needed to order food when the manager said that wasn’t the case, 3. Doubled down on that lie when we were seated and the manager was out of sight

    It's not family friendly place:, it was a special occasion on a sunday afternoon and a friend brought her 2 year old son and received the worst stares from the waitresses; other families that were there with who we had the opportunity to talk with also complained about the same treatment received. I felt so bad about the whole situation that I'll never set foot there again. I'd recommend the staff to read more about sexism to understand how terrible their behavior was.

    Overall, the food was good, and the service was great. The Thai salad was good but deemed inauthentic by a native from Thailand who described it as fusion cuisine at best. The peanut sauce served on the salad would never be served in this way. It would only be found as a dipping sauce for pork slices. The sauce was also deemed too sour for this purpose, though the added vinegar was used to pair with the salad for American tastes. The egg noodles were more Chinese than Thai. The burgers were very good, if a bit small.

    Really great "hams and clams" special event: hats off to the chefs standing under the tent in the heat and humidity slow roasting that pig, it was amazing, incredibly tender and the special sauces you created were a great touch! Thanks for the hard work and hope you will repeat it next year! My only complaint was that we resisted the temptation to order a side of your handcut fries, but we figured we were being piggy enough as it was. :)

    The location and food were awesome. Service was very slow. We were there at 4 pm on a Sunday, Group of 9. It was not very crowed. The server would only bring 2 packets of sugar at a time for iced tea and lemonade and very little ice despite our constant requests. Overall, it was a good experience.

    To start, the service was superb. Our server was excellent. Attentive without hovering or forgetting about us. Admirable as it was pretty busy. Overall, appetizers and burgers were very good. The fish and chips was not great - tasted mostly like fried batter but not much taste overall. We were in the tented area and enjoyed all of the dogs around (though some, I understand, would not find this as fun). Beer - which is what I came for with my family - was also good, though I was surprised that they were out of their tripel. I found the "unique beers" particularly good. Overall, a positive experience and I would go back!
