I went there for the first time yesterday with a few friends. Their beer list was incredible. I have never been to a brewpub with more than 5 beers available. They had their 4 regular beers along with like 5 or 6 additional special/seasonal beers, including a barleywine, a big stout, a gruit (named Weekapaug Gruit, and though I wanted to order it solely because of the Phish reference, I was about to drive an hour to Providence), a couple Belgian style beers, and a couple others that I don't remember.

Their menu was OK, nothing special on it. I got one of their specials called the Dice K Doggie, which was a hot dog fried with tempura crust. It was pretty good.

The waiter was a bit odd, but attentive, and the atmosphere was a little lacking. it was a big open room, lots of brick, with some cool paintings on the wall, but it just seemed very bland.

I ordered their Charles River Porter, which was pretty good. Nice full body and lots of roasted malt flavor. I imagine, based on other reviews, that their other beers are just as good.

Aside from the odd waiter and the bland atmosphere, the place was good. Next time I'm up in that area, I'll be sure to go back (hopefully without having to drive right afterwards so I can try their bigger beers). (1,259 characters)

Really cool place with a nice outdoor patio and a really laid back vibe where everyone was welcomed and taken care of by the attentive staff. They had a nice selection of beers, the waiter offered solid recommendations and the food came out quick and hot. Beers were good, my burger was very good and there was no rush to leave or pressure. It was a perfect hangover experience and our waiter was one of the best I've ever had, at any restaurant. Quality place close to Lord Hobo, go to both if you're up in Cambridge, MA, you won't be disappointed. (549 characters)
