Summary: The idea is good, but the execution may be spotty. Might be worth it to wait for the problems to be ironed out.

I am so fortunate when I visit my colleagues in Boston. They are always looking for places that will be gastronomically interesting. I was excited when, a few days before my trip, I was told that they found a new gastropub in the Boston area. The idea sounded great. Good food, lots of under appreciated micros, and Cambridge location. Unfortunately, the distance between concept and reality was a bit wider than I would have liked.

Meadhall has a vibe fitting for the Cambridge area, light, open, industrial, very new, and a bit on the 30 something meeting place loud side. The selection of taps would be outstanding if everything on the menu was available. Thirteen of the 95 beers were gone with no backup. This might be a small gripe, but many of the top notch beer bars I've been to always have something on deck. Despite this, there were plenty remaining to choose from, all of which (save a few) were worth trying.

Service was also something that needs to be smoothed out. The wait for a beer was a bit long and the server had very little information about what was available. The food was very well prepared but, like the beer, was a bit on the pricey side. Pours ranged from a pint to 12 oz, depending on the ABV and prices were typically 6 or 7 per pour. Despite all this, the place is worth a return due to its decent selection and well prepared food. It will have to be in the budget, however.

One of the better craft beer bars in Cambridge. Over 100+ beers on tap I am always pleased that they continue to serve fresh beer. They sometimes offer discounted beers...which is how I suspect they move the slow movers in a category and keep the beer fresh.

The food is good with a lite fair menu before 5 PM and a full menu from 5-9 PM. They make a great burger, and the beef tartar (raw ground beef served with bread and onions) is not something you find at most bars..!

There is an upstairs that is good for private parties.
