I was there for business brunch and have just an hour to get back to the office. It took more than 30 min to order and it was very hard to get the waitress to us. I will not come back there

Darry is always so sweet. Our waitress was very patient and accommodating. Some of my guest were first timers and they really enjoyed the food. The clam chowder fries are to die for what an invention!

Awful.... just awful. Tried to go there and watch football, have some drinks and a bite to eat. Sat in the bar area to get best view of TV after waiting forever for a hostess at the counter to get my points. Got our drinks fairly quickly and were good. The problem was it took forever to get an order in. He kept ignoring us and waking by us to see if we needed anything. Finally, he told us to cash out because his shift was over. I get it but ask is if we need anything before you go. Just avoid you won’t even get your points. We ended up leaving without eating. Shame. The one in the city is so much better. Just no available seats there.

This is my go to place for lunch or dinner in the Kendall Square area -- I love this place! The staff are super friendly, and they provide outstanding service. They are always welcoming to everyone (newcomers and repeat customers) -- they take great care of you and they don't rush you. They have a wide range of menu options, there is something for everyone! And the food is always delicious, I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every meal at this restaurant!

Great food and fun atmosphere! Service declined shortly after we ordered drinks, though, and we waited maybe an extra 45 minutes for our check because our waiter would just disappear.

Nice place, I didn’t,realize it was part of Marriott. We had reservations nobody explained the breakfast/brunch to us and the different costs, even though we had menu’s. Couldn’t get a drink till 11:00am. I liked it, but very noisy.

Maybe not the best place for a diner (except if it’s a sunny day and we are able to eat outside, or for a game night)... But prices are right, we never had a problem with staff who was friendly and helpful every time we went, and we find the place good (and easy with little kids) for brunch...

A great breakfast/brunch buffet including an omelet station. Lots of options to choose from. Easy access for non-hotel guests, discounted parking. Worth the trip.

We needed a place in Boston to watch the Patriots Live on TV while waiting to catch a flight, however we were trying to avoid the "bar scene." This was perfect. Lots of large-screen TV's and delicious and fun menu options. Highly recommend.

First time there they keep screwing up our orders, not mentioning the low quality of the food itself. Didn't taste as the description in the menu. Second time they forced us to pay for food in order to watch world cup. Nothing on open table was this rule stated!! They also gave us bad seating for the game and didn't move us to a better place despite almost empty restaurant. They charged us 18% gratitude for buffet!!! Never coming back here again. Open table should do something about this. If they have rules for seating this should be stated in the app!

Champions is a regular place for me when I am in Cambridge on business, staying at the Marriott. The food is good, the atmosphere is convivial, and the service is terrific. Michaela always greets you with a smile and Dottie is the best server I have ever met. She is friendly and responsive and makes you feel right at home. Endrin and Yali are also terrific. I always look forward to eating at Champions.

If you want good, safe, basic fare in a casual atmosphere, Champions is an excellent place to go. The staff (especially Dottie, who is terrific) is welcoming, responsive, and helpful and dining there is always an enjoyable experience. The soups are consistently good and the salmon and burgers are excellent. There are lots of televisions on the walls so you won't miss any sports events or news. I travel to Cambridge on business a lot and Champions is always a destination for me.

I was there for the Pats game, I had made reservations for a table because I thought it was going to be packed, but it wasn't. So my date and I just sat at the bar and watched the game and had appetizers. The bar tenders were pretty nice and they made good drinks.
