The food was excellent, and the service friendly and helpful. We had booked a table indoors but it was unbelievably noisy - bad acoustics as always - so we moved to the patio which was great, and we were warm until the heater next to us ran out of fuel very early. I've been coming to the CBC for many years and it was my choice for my birthday dinner last night. The beer was excellent as usual - we had the porter, amber ale, and bitter, and they were delicious.
Had an absolutely delightful holiday dinner with my family here the day after Thanksgiving. It was the perfect place to relax, unwind, and enjoy great food and beer!
Relaxing environment. Delicious food. And truly special beer. What more could you want?
Good food, though a somewhat limited menu. Service was a bit slow, but not egregiously so. And it *was* a Sunday night! CBC is very convenient to the Kendall Cinema.
VERY good with allergies and the fish and chips & eggplant fries were phenomenal! A+++. Also very family friendly and our waiter was great and super understanding of our large party!
Their beer is fantastic but their coffee was not--was cold and not very tasty. The chicken and waffle sandwich was excellent but sweet potato fries came cold. Great salad and kids meals though!
I will definitely be back for fish and chips and many other things!
CBC provided the only venue in the area that allowed you to reserve outdoor seating. The table was located in a large canopy with heaters. This made it possible for our team to see each other for the first time in almost two years.
Food was fantastic. We were there on a Monday night and it wasn't very crowded. The server was not attentive to us or other tables per our visual assessment. After he took our order we didn't see him for over 30 minutes. We had to ask the hostess for water refills. Someone elase droppes the food at our table. Again, food was very good.
Service was extremely slow, incorrect orders were brought to several tables throughout the meal, and food was cold by the time it arrived.
Food service and environment simply great
It took a long time for the waiter to take our order and it took even longer time for the food to be brought to the table. After waiting for an hour, the food was finally served but we have to leave in a hurry by converting them to take out.
Busy and noisy. Service was slow and food was just ok. Breading on the Fish and Chips was thick and greasy. Asparagus with the Beef Tips was hard and not chewable. Beers were very good.
Horrible service, food was subpar. Waiter didn't fill up our water at all, then proceeded to yell at my friends and patronize us. It was my birthday dinner and it ended with me crying because the waiter treated me so poorly and wouldn't let me speak. Management didn't care at all. Do not recommend. Only go here if you like to waste money on bland food and disgusting service/
Great place - food and drinks are amazing, dog friendly, and staff is always excellent
As usual, a combination of good food, good beer, and a nice atmosphere. I'm never disappointed!
Another wonderful evening at my favorite restaurant! Our out of town friends loved all the delicious food and beer! I’ll be back next week with my usual crew! 🌟
Have gone several times. Was there again just last night with my wife and daughter. Always good food at a reasonable price. Last night’s service was a little off but food was still good. Server was slow to take initial drink order and when we ordered a beer flight we were told that there were too many flights already out and there weren’t sufficient flight glasses to give a flight at that time. So, we said no problem and to just get it to when they have clean glasses. We never got it. Service was only reason why I gave them 4 stars instead of 5.
Great Beer, good food and a nice atmosphere makes it a nice place for n evening out
Even in a rainstorm, CBC is a great place to eat outside. Love that they put some noise absorbing panels outside I the tent--much appreciated! Food was excellent and seasonal. Beer was amazing as always.
Fun, lively and tasty place near the MIT campus. Came with my son after visiting several college campuses. We were famished. The gnocchi with an assortment of fall vegetable in a cream sauce with pomegranates and pistachios on top was not what I was expecting at a brewery, but it was divine. My son was very happy with his large and tasty hamburger. Young families, students, professors, all types and kids of folks were happily eating here. The staff looked like they could use more help but that's not their fault. The brews and ciders were delicious as well.
Super dog friendly on the patio!
Good service and great beer selection.
The reason this is two stars and not one is because the food was terrific. The service and ambiance was horrible. We waited 10 min before a waiter greeted us and brought water. There were many empty tables - all unbussed. It felt disgusting to be surrounded by so many dirty tables and piles of dishes. And the floor was covered in crumbs as if no one had swept all day. The waiter wasn’t particularly friendly and brought us the wrong check. I won’t be back any time soon.
Food is simple and tasty. Our biggest complaint was the incredibly slow and disorganized service. We were given another tables appetizers, which just so happened to the same as ours so this initially went under our radar. It was only until the other table had been waiting for an hour for their food (including these appetizers which included the meal for their toddler) and we were almost given that tables entries that we figured out what had happened. We waited 45 mins for our drinks to arrive and almost an hour and a half for our food to arrive. Once everything was finished, we waited 30 mins for the check before my partner had to chase down a waiter so we could pay. All this said, we did enjoy our meals and the ambiance.
Wonderful in these strange days to be able to sit outside in a large group of friends and drink beer and have fun.
Decent food, really good prices for the beer flights (just $12 for 4), the beer was amazing
food is terrible, wait time is long. The only good is a beer!
Food was delicious, beer was great, and the service was fantastic! We arrived pretty early but they were able to accommodate us right away, and even though only two servers were working outside they were so attentive I’d have sworn they had triple that staff. Highly recommend!
CBC is always great. Good beer, good food, great ambiance. Outdoor patio has always been nice and in the pandemic is even more valuable. So glad to have this place in our neighborhood.
Great prices of specials. Nice drink menu selection. Grateful for pet-friendly patio. Little delay with additional drinks. Amazing staff!
Was a great time at beerunch! Outdoor seating was great and the food was really good!
Great place to go if you have a dog! Nice atmosphere
The spot was good for six friends just enjoying time together. Service was a bit slow but didn’t bother us because we were not in a hurry. I was worried it would be too loud but worked out great on a Saturday evening.
great casual beer restaurant Beer was good,food was good.
Cambridge Brewing Co did a great job! We had a group event and they were wonderful about accommodating changes and had great service day of. Food and beer were all delicious. 10/10 would recommend!
Great beer variety (not just all IPAs).
Terrific sweet potato fries.
Food for vegetarians and carnivores
Solid meal, solid service. Nice outdoor seating, nothing to complain about here ^^
Wonderful, as always. Attentive & lovely staff, good food, lots of of our & outdoor tables. Hit the spot!
We ended up there because during Covid we wanted to be sure we could reserve an outdoor table. Our waitress was on a double shift and it showed. Our food was mediocre at best. Beer was good. Atmosphere outside in a courtyard off of the street was nice.
To begin, Cambridge Brewing Company was somewhat difficult to find. The complex in which it is located is under construction, so it was a bit tricky to navigate. Yes, we could have entered through another street, but based on our directions, we were entering from another side. We arrived and were greeted quickly. There was no available outside seating, so we were seated inside. I believe we were the only party seated indoors. The server was very nice and provided suggestions, but the service was very slow. Drinks came out very slowly and a refill took even longer. (We were nearly done with our meal.) We placed an appetizer order and a runner brought them out to us. Appetizers were very good - buffalo tenders and calamari. The calamari also had some artichokes in the order. It wasn’t until we were done with the apps that the server returned to take our dinner order. My friend and I ordered the fried chicken sandwich and it was very good. The fries were excellent and the bun was nicely grilled. Her husband ordered the smashed double burger and he reported that it was okay. My husband ordered the grass-fed sirloin tips and while they were ordered medium-rare the outside was burned in places making it hard to cut through them. He enjoyed the asparagus, but did not care for the garlic mashed potatoes, saying they were pasty. Maybe it was just an off day. All in all, dinner was fine, but an extra check in and quicker drink service would have added to the experience.
