Food nice and a great amount of fresh variety. Waitstaff pleasant but seemed inexperienced. This is a great bargain and value. The Tavern would do better service if they had one person that replenished drinks and another that picked up plates especially on Father's Day. MA people like their coffee and keep it coming waiting for it to brew is short sighted. Perhaps carafes of coffee each table. Nice family atmosphere for Father's Day.

Good basic tavern. Service took a long time, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt because the Stanley Cup Final was that night and I'm sure inside was rough! Lovely outdoor seating area. Food was okay: chicken fajitas were mostly onions, and the black beans were basically just heated up canned beans with queso on them. But it was only $15 for the entree so overall not bad!

I have dined there twice, each time the food was excellent. The ambiance is very nice. The decor was fun. The service was very good, even when it was busy.

Sadly, it was a busy day when we visited 730 Tavern. We were seated 30min later than our reservation time. They seemed short-staffed, overwhelmed and disorganized. Surely they can do better.

Good option for a quick bite before a sporting event at MIT. Our food was delicious and arrived quickly. The beer list was decent and menu had variety. The room was surprisingly low volume for a sports bar which worked out great for talking during dinner. Service was friendly but could have been a little prompter especially as it was early and not very busy.

Quick dinner before a show. Food fine. TVs large, music loud. In other words- sports pub.

Brunch is delicious and very reasonable! Top Chef! excellent quality and great variety of food. Best Buffet I have seen in years around Boston. Also, the staff was completely warm and friendly and made our day so relaxing! We made reservations for Easter Brunch and will be back for the regular menu, which also looks fabulous.

Solid pub/American food at a good price point. Enjoyed the drinks too. +10000 brownie points for having the Impossible burger! Wouldn't mind a vegetarian entree too though (:

Very good food and courteous, efficient staff. Additionally, the fact that I enjoyed their green beans - even though I have never been fond of them - is a testament to their selection of produce and care given to cooking.

They could use some more vegetarian entrees. Service was great - very friendly. Loud guests nearby, but that may have been only that night. Lots of screens showing sports: nice if that's your thing; a bit too much if it's not. Food was ok, but expensive.

Maybe just a slow night?

Went in on a Wednesday at 7:00 and just felt like it should have been busier. Unless you're there for appetizers, the menu feels like a whole suitcase of missed opportunity. We had $15 burgers, which is a bit on the high-priced side for a burger that was good but not great. (Although, I should point out, they were beautifully prepared - a true rare and medium-rare, respectively, and seemingly few kitchens get that right.) Our server's mind was simply not in the game (or maybe ON the game - there were at least three in big TVs all around us), asking us questions we had repeatedly answered (Can I get you anything to drink? For the third time, no. And what would you like as your side? Sweet potato fries - we already covered that. And how about some dessert [she asked AS she took our dinner order]? No thanks, again). Cmon. With about four tables occupied, it should have been an easier night for her.

Went here for the Sunday brunch buffet. For $17 couldn’t beat it, they had a great selection of delicious , fresh food and desserts. There was a water main break down the street and posed an issue with the water that day. The manager and waitstaff were so apologetic and even took our drinks off the bill. I would go back for the food and definitely for the hospitality!

730 Tavern is what one would expect; offers a nice range of food and drink choices, plenty of TV screens and cheerful service. I recommend it for a happy get together or a friendly place at which to while away time.

The food at this place was decent, but everything else was below par. The staff was distant and a little surly, the service had trouble getting the order right, the place smelled bad and seemed dirty and the multiple giant TV screens had the volume turned up so loud my ears hurt.
