Cambridge Common Restaurant Review

: With the same owners as long-lived Christopher's and the trendy West Side Lounge, both nearby, it should come as no surprise that Cambridge Common is also a fave with Harvard and Porter Square denizens. Even so, the come-as-you-are atmosphere of neon beer signs and wooden booths is all its own. And even though common wings, quarter pound burgers (available for less than $5) and brews (30 on tap with 16 constantly rotating) are its stock-in-trade, the Common at its best does them uncommonly well: mac ‘n’ cheese bites, sweet potato fries and deviled eggs seasoned with Old Bay are memorable. Stick-to-your-ribs entrées include grilled meatloaf with beer-battered onion rings, chicken potpie, and a grilled turkey and cheddar sandwich. And afterwards, you can head downstairs to the Lizard Lounge to bump-and-grind the calories away to the nightly live entertainment.
