Originally opened in 1996, Grafton Street Pub & Grill has been a beloved institution of Harvard Square for more than a decade. This neighborhood hotspot is named after the spirited cobblestone-lined shopping district in Dublin’s famed Temple Bar area. Grafton Street deftly combines the warmth and coziness of a traditional neighborhood pub with the aesthetic of a contemporary restaurant.

We enjoyed the setting, love the booths and high tops. It was nice that we could hear each other- wasn’t too loud!

The food was good but not great. The dessert was sad looking and not presented well. It was overpriced for the food.

First visit to Grafton but we are big fans of Hourly Oyster and Russell House Tavern. Food was very good but service was fair...waitress friendly and tried her best! Service was extremely slow and did not seem well versed with menu and struggled to answer questions. She could not tell us where the oysters where from but after a few questions we were able to look up on iphone and they were delicious! We had similar response when asking about menu items...will try again.

Excellent beet salad and good pizza -- very generous portions that make it fun to share.

I've loved this restaurant for a long time. The menu changes seasonally to capture fresh ingredients, and the food is always delicious! The papardelle bolognese was incredible and the goat cheese bruschetta was a great start to the meal - fried goat cheese with fresh tomatoes and toasted bread - what more could you ask for?? The only complaint is how loud the restaurant is, which makes it difficult to have a conversation or any type of romantic ambiance.

Service was a little spotty, food was above-average and tasty. Wished there were more starters/appetizers available for a the lunch/brunch hour.

We chose the Grafton Street Pub because of previous reviews and proximity to our hotel. We loved it. Made a reservation and arrived on time and our table was ready within 3 minutes. The service was excellent and we enjoyed our beverages, the meal and the lively but not raucous atmosphere.

This place is usually pretty good; this visit wasn't the best one we've had. I ordered the Irish breakfast with fried eggs; they were so undercooked even the whites were still runny which I just find repulsive. The sausages were pretty tough, like they'd been sitting out a while. The beans were great though! They offered my daughter chocolate chips for her pancakes to which she agreed, but there were so many chocolate chips and the pancakes themselves were a but undercooked, so that the whole pile turned in to a bit of a soggy mess. I"m starting to feel like going to a popular area for brunch on a Sunday is like going to basically any restaurant on Valentine's Day...its just not going to provide the best experience. Too hurried, too busy, too many items that need to be prepped in advance and left sitting; too too too. Oh well.

Went for a 1PM business brunch. We were assigned a table with stools and we requested a regular table. The waiter was very pleasant and went to inquire. The answer was that the tables we could see had reservations. Yet all throughout our meal we saw the one table open. Halfway through the meal there were several open tables and we were not offered to move.
