    Good menu and food, but very loud and understaffed.

    Came here on a double date with friends, and got to sit at a table that was inside what used to be a bank vault. Very cool and unique. Food and drinks were great, and server was very attentive. I'd definitely go back.

    I enjoyed this location when it was "First Printer". It appears management re-branded it, changing the menu and the look a bit. It's still good, and bartender Willie (Mac, I think?) is still there, and still great. The food was better than expected, and quite good. The only issue is the noise level - the space has very high ceilings, and currently, no sound dampening. They may wish to be lively, but a bit of dampening would be smart

    We did not know that in the time between our reservation and our arrival, the restaurant had changed management and name. The food was good, the service excellent ( se met every member of the wait staff and all were helpful and friendly), and we will return.

    The food at Kennedy's is really good, especially for the price. The cocktails are on the expensive side ($12-15) but the burgers and pizza are not (also $12-15). My husband and I had a nice dinner for under $50, which is unusual for Harvard square. I wish they had a better beer list (it was mostly very standard stuff, very few craft or micro brews) but I would definitely go back. We had the bison burger, sausage pizza, and creme brulée, all of which were tasty.
