Settled in 1635. The village was incorporated as the town of Arlington in 1867 following the civil
war as a tribute to Arlington National Cemetery.
Our vision for Menotomy Grill & Tavern is to bring the tavern concept back to the town of Arlington by creating a rustic grill capitalizing on the coziness of a brick house featuring fireplace, open kitchen,
exposed beams, large planked hard wood floors, and historical artifacts and photos. Fostering a
loyal following will be the key to our success, so we welcome you to join us on Facebook for news, special offers and exciting events.

Excellent food and ambiance! It took us a while to be seen by the waiter for the first time to even get water, but we were given a free appetizer to compensate without having complained, and the service was excellent thereafter.
Our meals were yummy. Salads to start - so fresh and tasty. The salmon entree was superb and the shrimp tacos special; oh so very good. There is a lovely Sancerre by the glass! Oh not to mention the top notch attentive service. Way to go Menotomy! See you soon.
I've always enjoyed coming here. This visit was no less enjoyable. The food was great and the drinks were delicious! I tried a new cocktail with apricot in it and it was super tasty! I love the ambiance and the cozy feel of this place. Definitely will come back again!
The mussels were great as was the veggie burger but the chicken pot pie has very little chicken. It used to have a wonderful sage flavor but it doesn’t anymore. The flatbread special was amazingly good and the impaired ginger drink is great as is the wine list. Excellent service too!
We've been to Menotomy Grill many times, for lunch, dinner, and brunch. Always good, excellent service and interesting menu items. A real neighborhood Gem.
Never had bad service nor a bad meal...The atmosphere is anyway U want it
Nice mix of menu items. Comfortable broom. Nice folks.
We had a nice family meal and the restaurant was cheerfully decorate for the holidays!
Everything was wonderful.
It was difficult to hear my friends across the table. The waiter was good, funny and friendly and let us know there were two private parties.
Good food and friendly service. Not too expensive.
Took extended family there including small kids for a chance to relax and catch up together. We had a great evening. The food exceeded our expectations and the service was very good. There was a good energy in the restaurant but not too noisy.
Wonderful brunch. Nice array of specials and food was fresh and delicious. Service was pleasant and attentive!
First time at the Menotomy Grill & Tavern. Well stocked bar with attentive bartenders. Nice ambiance with energetic crowd early on and then thinned out by 9:00PM on the Friday evening we were there. The cauliflower taco and Devils on Horseback appetizers were well received by our gang. Main courses of the Cod Cakes, Rice Bowl pulled Pork and vegan Black Bean Burger were all appreciated respectively. Nice wine by the glass offerings and draft beer selections. Overall, definitely merits a second visit.
Arrived at 1150 for 1200 lunch meeting with VIP guest doors were locked unable to meet. Disappointed that may appear unprepared for my meeting.
One of favorite places when we come to Boston.
Loved our first visit to Menotomy Grill & Tavern. It was perfect for our pre-show dinner before heading to The Regent Theatre.
This place is a must go to!
Salmon burger 👌
Excellent as always and our server was terrific. This is a real neighborhood gem.
This was a great venue for a college parents weekend large group dinner!
Great meal and service!
Fantastic. The staff was attentive and friendly. The food was delicious. The live music on Thursday night is such a bonus. Having high quality musicians perform the Blues could not be better.
Food and service were great! The Bahn mi sandwich and the burger were awesome
One guest’s entree arrived cold, and it took awhile to get it heated while the rest of us were eating, but overall the food was very good.
My SO and I loved the food and the ambience and our server was nice, but it took a really long time to get our food. We waited a full hour before our meals came. I would recommend but not if you are tight on time.
Everything was perfect. A truly great place to eat, drink and hang out with friends
Food was excellent and very generous portions. Our waiter was very gracious and accommodating.
Went last year and was disappointed with the noise and food. Gave it a try this year, and was very pleased. We had a margarita pizza and salad with a pinot noir. The meal was delicious and the noise level was fine. Looking forward to going back to Menotomy Grill.
Food concepts and ingredients, as well as preparation and plating were pretty underwhelming. Draft beer selection good. Might try again.
We visited for Saturday brunch. Food was generally good, but the hollandaise sauce on the eggs Benedict tasted like the cook substituted vinegar for lemon juice. Service was intrusive and we felt rushed, even though the place was not at all busy. Server went over specials before our entire party arrived and then had to do it again, came back multiple times in quick succession asking if we were ready to order, started clearing plates before all of us were done, brought the check while one person was still eating, and rushed us to pay the bill.
I have been to this restaurant several times...this time I did not find the quality of the food to be as good. I had roast chicken and it was overcooked...I couldn't even bite through the outer chicken and skin on some parts it was so tough. The flavor of the dish was not memorable either. Which is what my son said about his food as well (he got a lamb burger). The rest of the food was OK. The table we were sitting at also had extra legs underneath and there was not much room for our legs and the bench seats we were sitting on had multiple cushions where the joins happened to be where both my son and I were sitting which made it uncomfortable...I had always sat at tables with hairs before so had never encountered this before. Usually I really like the food at this restaurant but this time we were disappointed.
menu items cooked perfectly & dishes ordered with special instructions and were delivered exactly as asked.
Excellent service and delicious cod cakes. Will go aga6and order the same.
This is the 2nd time I've been to Menotomy. The first time several years ago the food was "meh". Not much in this visit has changed my mind. Dinner started off good with brisk and friendly service, the apps were good and drinks came out quickly. However, my burger that I asked medium rare came out well done. Since everyone else had their meals and I didn't want to wait til they cooked another one (which is always annoying), I ate 2/3 of it. Another diner ordered the mussels and said that a few of them were bad (tasted off and rubbery). The mussels were sent back. One other diner stated her fish was overcooked but for the same reason as me, ate some of it. All of these complaints were given to the server who simply shrugged and appeared annoyed. At no point did a manager come to the table. We did order two desserts, which were yummy. But everyone agreed that the desserts, at the very least, should have been on the house. It's sad that a restaurant has forgotten that it's in the service industry. One of the diners is from Arlington and stated that they will not be back. It's unfortunate.
The overall service was very slow for a not very busy night. 2 orders at the table where done wrong and came to the table wrong. When they corrected the mistake one guy got cold steak tips and the fries that came with my burger were cold. Also when my order came back corrected the server never checked back to make sure everything was ok. The server was slow and did not check up on us in a timely manner.
Overall the experience was sub-par for a restaurant of have been to several times and almost always have been happy.
Excellent menu and good service
Honored our reservation on a busy Saturday evening
Fun atmosphere! Great food!
Great find! Has a chic neighborhood feel. Food was great. My only complaint was the screens (and there weren't that many), but that's just me.
The food was great, the overall experience was good.
We must have had a new server. It took a long time before he can to the table, then gave the impression he wanted our complete order immediately. We ordered drinks and 2 appetizers and said we need a few more minutes to decide on entrees. The appetizers arrived after a longish time, no drinks. After 5-10 minutes, drinks arrived. 2 out of 4 were wrong.
They were fixed, but took a while.
Entrees were ordered and came promptly.
All food was very good, just service was off. Clearly a newbie that still has a lot of practice/training to do.
