Oysters and Shrimp
On the patio every Thursday night.
Nice beer collection. And the wings were tasty too. I also tried a pizza which was tasty.
Great from the hostess, wait staff to the food. The food was presented & tasted perfectly each and every time we have visited the restaurant.
Their Chick’n BLT is delicious! Service has always been great!! And if you haven’t tried the Battle Road beer?…then you missed the best tasting local brew around!!! Go back just for the Battle Road Brew!!!
Came here for lunch one day and had some of the best fish tacos ever! They also had a really great selection of beers and other drinks on tap. Loved it so much we went back later that night for a few more drinks and some food.
We’ve eaten here four times and the food has always been top notch and the service very good.
I’ve had the steak tips twice and there were always more than I could (should) finish.
They have live music on the weekends which makes this place a perfect spot to get out on the weekend without having to go far. The downside is you should have a reservation on Friday or Saturday or end up waiting 30 minutes in the bar area.
It’s my favorite place in Arlington by far.
Great food — had a salad and the soup of the day and it was amazing! Enjoyed the special drink too – white sangria. Good selection of cocktails, wine & beer. Glad we stumbled on this restaurant. Delicious and great vibe.
By far my favorite restaurant in Arlington! The food is always amazing, and you get really good portions for what they’re priced. The pulled pork sandwich is addicting, but the fried pickles are by far my favorite thing on the menu. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone!
We had dinner there the other night without a reservation. What a great feel to the restaurant. The fireplace and bar areas are very comfortable and inviting. The hostess sat us as soon as she could and our waitress was quick to get us our drinks. I had the roast chicken with potato sausage stuffing. It was really very good. In fact it was a great meal, great service, in a great space and not overly priced. It checked off all of my boxes.
This is a Grill and Tavern that could easily be in Boston or NYC. The atmosphere is chic and comfy. The outdoor patio is fun in summer and gives you some quiet space if you are in that mood. Inside has a lively bar and comfortable tables in the restaurant area. The menu has something for everybody. The appetizers like the fried pickles or chipotle wings are easy for sharing. The salads are substantial and delicious. They are easily a dinner when you add shrimp, chicken or steak tips! Great burgers and sandwiches of all kinds. Entrees represent New England fare.
I really like this place. We go about once a month. The bar has that local pub feel and the tables have an unpretentious upscale ambiance. All the staff are great. The food is a perfect blend of familiar and imaginative, and very good. Good selection of beer on tap, cocktails made tasty quickly and ice cold. The parking lot usually full so plan to street park in Mass Ave.
In town for a wedding and staying at the hotel next door. I have been there 3 times in two days and everything has been superb. Great drink selection, fantastic service and the food is excellent. Has the steak tips for dinner and the French dip for lunch. Both delicious and cooked a perfect medium rare. Other in the group has the fish and chips, roast chicken and grilled chicken Caesar. All fantastic. Kid friendly with a nice kid’s menu.
Was in Cambridge while attending classes at Harvard for my work. I had dinner here twice choosing their chicken sandwich (with) sweet potato fries.
We hosted my son's wedding rehearsal dinner on Friday October 6th at The Menotomy Grill & Tavern in Arlington. The guest list included 30 adults and 4 children. We opted to have the Tavern Buffet which included, Baked Cod, Herb Roasted Chicken and the BEST Steak Tips (be sure to try the fabulous sauce they offer), along with Roasted Potatoes, Fresh Sautéed Green Beans and Rolls. I asked the event manager Tom Carroll if we could add some baked brie and fruit platter to the guests as they waited for everyone to arrive and he delivered a lovely set up that the guests really enjoyed. (…) Some guests were so impressed that they went back the next day for lunch!
Came to hear live music which sounded great. Glad they support live music. The band was great. We had supper. The chicken was great and my friend said the shrimp pasta was decent. My other friend ordered a vegetable dish that she was quite happy with. Recommend the food, they have an extensive drink menu, wonderful music and it has a nice pub atmosphere.
We *love* the MG! Billy the owner is a love! He has created a fabulous menu made with ultra fresh ingredients and you'll know what I mean when you try the vast array of dishes. He works tirelessly to create an atmosphere that makes you feel right at home. I'm a freakishly weird eater with many restrictions and all of the wait staff we've had are so accommodating and fabulous about it. I can't say enough about MG but don't take my word...try it for yourself! You won't be disappointed.
“Food is amazing! It's a great energetic place with attentive and knowledgeable bartenders and servers. Cool vibe with live music as well. I cannot say enough about the wonderful food, we ordered the crispy chicken musket balls appetizer. We ate them in record time, so delicious! I had the cuban sandwich which was the best cuban I have ever had! My husband had the special which was shrimp with pasta, so good. I wish this was in our town as we would definitely be regulars. Making a reservation is a must as this place is jammed packed. Our reservation was right on time and I cannot say enough about how much we fell in love with this place. We'll be back!”
“Great atmosphere, great decor, great food and bartender was awesome. Was staying next door at Homewood Suites for weekend and stopped here for drink and bite to eat. Absolutely loved the decor and atmosphere, food and drinks were great and bartender was awesome (very personable, friendly and professional). Two thumbs up all the way around.”
“I'm really happy I decided to try this place out. They've got a great selection of draft as well as bottle/can beer, as well as one of the better bourbon and scotch selections I've seen at a restaurant in quite a while. And the atmosphere is pretty cool. I had a cheeseburger with this amazing tomato jam on it, and it really hit the spot. I don't know why this place is near empty at the moment... But that just means I get it all to myself. Yummm.”
“The food was absolutely delicious! Our server was very friendly and attentive and the restaurant itself is beautiful. I definitely plan on going back!”
“My friend lives close to this restaurant, so we've been here before. I was concerned about some of the reviews about service, but I didn't need to be. Our server was on point, delivering our appetizers and main courses quickly, and frequently checking to see if we needed anything. My pork shank was large and delicious, with perfectly cooked grits. Can't wait to come back!”
“Best thing to ever happen to Arlington! I come here with my family all the time and we've never been disappointed. Delicious food, tasty drinks, superb service and AWESOME music on Thursday nights! We absolutely love it here!”
