Located close to the T's Kendall / MIT stop which was nice for those of us staying in Boston. This place has a big modern warehouse feeling to it when you walk in as there is plenty of glass, raised ceilings, and leaves you feeling small in such a large space. The bar area is huge and can seat upwards of 50 people. The taps are located in the middle of the oblong bar. There is a smaller area upstairs that has TVs and comfortable seats.

The beer list is nicely displayed on a huge chalkboard broken down by style. There is also a beer menu located on the bar. There were upwards of 70 beers here, and the list had numerous quality beers from the local Boston area and from around the globe. As with other places with large draft offerings, I was concerned about the freshness of the beer. The few pints I had were all fresh.

The service was very good despite the large number of people sitting at the bar. I had some appetizers, including the wings which were quite good.

This was a very enjoyable stop and a nice place to spend a few hours enjoying some pints. (1,070 characters)

Went on the recommendation of a colleague. Beer selection was fantastic, food options looked diverse (had the chicken panini). Prices were reasonable, just wished I wasn't always looking for/or waiting for the bartender's attention. It was lunch hour, but that's still no excuse. Would revisit and hope for better wait service. (337 characters)

pricing is weird. and the vibe is too corporate for me, but they sure have a lot of variety. (92 characters)

This place is hip. Lots of plaid shirts and undercuts, however, this is Cambridge 2015. Meadhall cannot be beat, great service and arguably the best craft beer selection that side of the river with lots of local brews on rotating taps. Very tasty bar food including a surprisingly delicious bratwurst and spaetzle. (314 characters)
