Was in the area on a weekday afternoon and decided to check it out. I'd heard of the myriad problems with this place when they openened (high prices, sketchy service, inavailability of beers) and was curious to check it out.

I like the space - very open. Seems like a comfortable place to hang out for a while. Was greeted quickly by a friendly bartender.

Took a peek at the beer list - decent selection of US crafts and beers from abroad. But WOW is this place pricey, even by Lord Hobo and other Camberville standards. $8 for .5L of Weinhenstephaner Hefe? $7 Pretty Things Jack D'or? $7 Mayflower? Eesh. At least I think they were only out of about 6 tap offerings.

Was a warm day and in the mood for a hefe, so I made the $8 splurge. Beer tasted OK, but the cost of it distracted me too much.

Chalked up my losses and moved on to Cambridge Brewing Company. Probably won't return here unless somebody else insists on it (& buys the overpriced beer too). (959 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)
