    Amazing food and service. The mussels and scallops were amazing and the bartenders were incredibly friendly and helpful. Aside from that, the ambiance is entertaining. Think of SpongeBob meets Tiki bar. I don’t want to spoil it but also should say if being in the hull of a boat with storms and an alarm sounding is triggering, maybe not your place. Will def be going back. Heavy on the rum cocktails. Not a ton of beer.

    Dudeeeee. I’ll be dreaming of the Captains Hash and monte cristo sandwich until our next brunch at the Dive Club. Our two kids tore up the French toast sticks and cinnamon roll in a matter of minutes. The Spritz was sooo refreshing too. The Dive Club Crew can do no wrong

    Absolutely loved the front of house manager; he was a younger man.... very professional and friendly. He is obviously a shining star in your organization. Other staff; especially hostess was very friendly. I love the concept. Food was tasty but portions were just too small. Unfortunately my partners food arrived first; I'm glad I encouraged him to eat but he was done before my meal was served. Growing pains I understand. Would return if larger entrees offered

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Everything was amazing! Will be back. Such a cool place, great place for a date night. Service was stellar and the staff so much was fun. Very well managed. Got chilled raw oysters, crab hand pies, pork dumplings -all food was to die for. Shared a coconut rum based drink from a big conch shell! I’m a key lime pie connoisseur, and theirs was one of the best I’ve had! Stay for the storm every hour!!! Too much fun!

    Unique theming inside the bar - really liked the vibe - very creative. Food - decent, but not great. The real disappointment were the mixed drinks. Ironic, as this is supposed to be a tiki bar. Drink recipes sounded good on paper, execution not good enough.

    Great place to stop by for drinks. The theming is incredible. Their two person tiki drinks are amazing and the bartenders are very helpful and willing to make substitutions based on a food sensitivity my husband had. We’re already planning our return trip.

    The Dive Club is a very unique experience in Cambridge. The cocktails are very original and the atmosphere is very fun. The menu choices are only so so. It would not be my first choice for dining and I'm afraid after going a couple of times for the experience I would lose interest unless the menu is expanded.

    What an eclectic place! In Cambridge of all places. We were spending a weekend at the Hyatt and wanted to leave the property. What an interesting, vibrant place this was. The menu was very broad and the drink were very tiki-ish. Our server was helpful and competent. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Woah, the experience was Ah-Ma-Zing! Food was fresh and delicious. Drinks were well made and worth the price for the extra time to make them. The decor of this restaurant is so cool and fun. These are shared plates, so make sure you go with someone you like because you will want to share. It's not a huge menu, but everything we tried was well prepared, fresh, and different. The service was exceptional. We are HUGE RAR fans, and this is just one more reason to love the brand (and the beer).

    This was an OK experience. I think they are still working out a lot of things. Food was good but not for the price. Portions very small. Service as good as can be expected being new. Drink was ok, but it took 47 minutes to get (seriously, got there at 5 ordered drink right away but did not get until 5:47). I think recipes may be too complex.

    If you like "theme" bars I highly recommend you try this place out. They did a great job with the decor and music, and the hourly "storm" has the right amount of kitsch to it. Service was prompt and friendly, although it did take longer than expected for some of our food to come out. Most drinks are on the sweeter side vs the higher end spirit prominent ones of a lot of tiki bars, but are tasty and have fun presentations. The food is a little on the pricey side for small plates but was very well made, flavorful and much above typical bar food. We had chicken skewers, the tuna bowl, duck fat fries and the hand pies and they were all delicious. Go during happy hour for the best value. Reservations highly recommended as the place is small. I would absolutely return and recommend.

    A quirky kooky gem. Answers the questions “What if the Krusty Krab served booze?” Massive drink menu of exotic Tiki bar-themed drink. Fewer food options, but the bill of fare was quite good. The Kracken and Crab Fried rice was the star. Can’t say enough about bartender/host/good will ambassador Doug. He was ridiculously friendly and accommodating. I’ve never hugged a host before, but he deserved it.

    Nice experience, but not an everyday place to eat. Tapas plates are small and you need many if you’re hungry. That makes it a pricey visit. Food was good, chilly inside, great drink selection if you want to try something different than a beer.
