This is a regular lunch spot for me when I am in Cambridge. The burgers are awesome and quite reasonably priced. Try the sweet potato fries. The salads are very good as well - fresh, imaginative and tasty.
Beer selection has many standby options, a good mix of locals, regionals, and national craft selections, with a few standby imports (how can a good Boston bar not have Guinness?) There are about 30 taps and one beer one cask.
Service is friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is nothing terribly distinctive - just comfortable, clean and inviting.

Stopped in here for a late night drink or two during a recent visit.
Atmosphere is OK. It's a pretty run-of-the-mill place, somewhat similar to a sports bar but not quite with the wings-and-BMC crowd. A large horseshoe bar sits in the center of the place with tables all around. TVs are pretty easy to find.
Quality is also OK. the beer was served at the proper temperature but some of the pours didn't have quite as much head as they should have and the glassware was pretty standard.
Service was good. We didn't have to wait long with empty glasses and the bartender knew the styles fairly well.
Selection was also good. There wasn't anything ridiculous on-tap but there were quite a few local options.
Value is good and par for the course in the Boston area.
Overall I wouldn't go out of my way to come back to this place but if I'm in the area I certainly wouldn't object.
