Worst Meal Ever... – There really is only one thing to say about this place-which has already been said about it's sister location in central sqaure- Just DONT EAT THERE. There are plenty of other good places to eat in this neighborhood unless of course you WANT to eat overpriced, horrible food and just guzzle beer with all of the rest of the crazy college students that flock here. If you want a REAL burger go to RF OSullivans or even Temple Bar, West Side Lounge or Cambridge Common.

The wait staff are overly instrusive in an attempt to seem attentive, the managment is horrible. The noise level is okay if you don't want to hear the person you are with (or anything else for an hour afterwards) and the prices are high for what you get. The drinks are terrible .....unless you just drink beer and the food is worse.

Contemporary bar and grill provides a polished alternative to Porter Square's numerous dive bars and ethnic eateries. – The Scene
With numerous plasma TVs and a hulking projection screen, the Tavern stakes its claim as Cambridge's top spot for watching sports. Conveniently located steps from the Porter Square T stop, the restaurant aims to provide area residents with an upscale neighborhood hangout. The well-stocked bar sports an impressive beer list that includes hard-to-find microbrews. Entertainment is offered nightly (live bands or DJs) and there's never a cover. Because service can be lax at the tables, those in a hurry should sit at the lengthy bar.

The Food
The far-reaching menu offers everything from sizzling fajita platters and wood-grilled pizzas to seemingly every starter and sandwich under the sun. It comes as a surprise, then, that quality is respectable across the board--a savory shepherd's pie is chock-full of aged ground sirloin, while bacon-cheddar skins arrive with cilantro sour cream. Straightforward desserts include passable tiramisu and a rich brownie sundae.
