Great service and delicious food. Some of the menu items seem standards so I had the special a pan roasted halibut . It was perfect! The soup on the day ( turnip) was delicious and vegan. The bet salad was also amazing in an amazing presentation. More...

Nice place. The food was fantastic, and so were the people. The only constraint is the parking. If you get lucky, you will find a parking spot in the parking lot.

Right down the street from me and never thought to go in. Went there for a private luncheon and was amazed at the attentive service, the politeness of the staff and management and the excellent food. We had a buffet which consisted of fish, chicken and steak, potatoes, green beans and ceasar salad and bread. Everything was fantastic. Good job. More...

From out of town and my friend suggested this place. It’s a great choice for brunch! I got the breakfast sandwich and she got the sandwich that was on special. It was grilled cheese with a poached egg and hollandaise on top. My sandwich had a fried egg, avocado, bacon, and tomato. The potatoes were perfectly done, crisp and seasoned well. My sandwich had a somewhat spicy aïoli so if you don’t like things with a kick I’d ask for it on the side. More...

My favorite bar in the Arlington, Cambridge,Somerville area. My favorite nights are Tuesday. Wednesday as well as Friday and Saturday nights. The bar staff are friendly and knowledgeable always willing to suggest a great food item and drink pairing to go with your meal. On the busiest of nights your glass is never empty and your food never cold. I've been going there for 5 years and look forward to seeing Rachael, Chip, Adriana as well as Christine . If the bartenders are not serving they are cleaning or restocking never stopping for very long. I highly recommend this Tavern/ Grill any night of the week but especially on the nights I've mentioned. More...

This place was pretty damn good. I honestly wasn't expecting much. For some reason, I don't know why.We were three people and we're seated today promptly. That kind of scared me at 6:30 PM on a Saturday. But, I figured I'd still give it a chance.We were seated in a nice table, near the kitchen which is an open concept. I love watching people cook like that. So that was a plus for me.Our waiter was stellar. I wish I knew what his name was because he was awesome but he had this great deep voice meant for television or radio. we ended up having the fried pickles, the fried homemade potato chips. Both were really good. The pickles weren't dill, they were half sour and I liked that.I had a burger,My cohorts in crime had the fish and chips, which was massive, and the pulled pork sandwich. Both were able portions and looked really yummy.My burger? Done to perfection and super juicy. Everything on it was great, I have to be honest though, the tomato jam? I could've used a little bit more. And I really liked the option of sweet potato fries as well.Downside? I don't like the fact that I had to order the side and it didn't automatically come with it. It makes the price kind of deceiving.And the other? The ladies bathroom was a mess. There was toilet paper all over the place, and the sink was full of bubbles and stuff and really needed to be cleaned.I'll still be back. More...

This restaurant was amazing. Right next to the Hilton hotel which was a perfect location. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. We sat outside and the weather was beautiful. Very good selection of local craft beers and the food was exceptional as well. Food is well portioned so you definitely aren't hungry but you don't feel bloated and gross after either. I would definitely come back if I'm in the area again. More...

Great food, plenty of gluten-free options for the celiac diner, and fun atmosphere. The staff was happy to help me with my dietary issues, and the food came out really quickly. Their gluten-free stuffing is so good! I didn't expect to get such a great meal at a place where I more expected basic bar food. My mistake, lucky me :) More...

Menotomy Grill and Tavern, 25 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA.  We called the Menotomy Grill hoping they could host a funeral reception at the last minute.  The manager was so nice and accommodating to our group.  Our funeral services ended early and even though we thought it would be 30 people at the reception, 50 people showed up an hour before we reserved the place and, again, they welcomed us and got the food ready a.s.a.p.  The presentation of the food was wonderful.  Everything was fresh and appetizing and delicious.   I had the grilled chicken BLT and it was to die for.  The service was friendly and attentive.  I cannot say how much we appreciated their flexibility and professionalism.  I highly recommend the Menotomy Grill for any occasion.

Perfect for small to medium groups, a solid dinner, or even just a quick drink, a visit to Menotomy won't be monotony! Their service speed was snappy in the hours immediately following the end of a long workday, and they accommodated our 8-person party easily. Some food options had a creative flair (try their chicken musket balls!), but I found others to be a tad lackluster in either effort or ingredient quality compared to that of other grill/bars that I've visited. All-in-all, I would frequent this location if traffic wasn't killer around rush hour.If this was helpful, please consider a thumbs up. It would be greatly appreciated! More...

I am visiting from Houston and Menotomy is steps away from my hotel.  Long story short, I have been here 3 nights in a row.  The service is great, especially Bob and Jason.  I've had something different to eat every night, and it's been absolutely delicious.  The local beer selection is amazing!  I am actually sitting here in the restaurant as we speak writing this review.  That's how great of an experience I have had!  Friday is my last day in town, and I promise you, I will be right back in here tomorrow.  I'm also looking forward to their live music artist. Great way to end my week before traveling back home! More...

Staying right across the parking lot entrance at the Homewood Suites next door so wandered in fairly early on Wednesday afternoon looking for a beverage (beer! ) and a snack.Ran smack into the same weird alcohol rules previously described by some other customers - I'm in my early fifties and look it.  Male bartender refuses service because he "doesn't feel comfortable", and walks away with no further conversation, his explanation once I called in the manager/owner was that he thought he could already smell alcohol on my breathe - which was true, I had a beer on the plane two hours before... we got it sorted with the manager's help and I got my tasty local amber ale which was a fine dandy of a beer.  Shift changes and I don't see that particular bartender again - new female bartender in residence now.  I order a 2nd beer and ask for the menu as I'm getting a little hungry after a massive breakfast.  French Onion soup, oh yes please!That French Onion soup was one of the best I've ever had - just perfect!  I almost went for the Carbonara as well but wasn't that hungry and had dinner plans already.I ordered my third/last beer and learned that if I hadn't ordered some food I wouldn't have been allowed to have that third beer, which was interesting - apparently this previously dry town has some wicked tough rules for bars and restaurants in their domain - one strike and you lose your liquor license, which explains quite a bit.I skipped Thursday but went back late on Friday evening, bar was packed but got a table immediately.  Ordered the French Onion soup and the Carbonara - soup was perfect again and the Carbonara was huge/more than I could eat and just spot on, all the good stuff that Carbonara is supposed to have and tasted great!  I would have taken the leftovers but was leaving very early the next morning.Would visit again.

This place is a great option in the area.  My only wish would be that they menu be truer to a tavern menu.  Some of the food options are a bit too fancy.  A Tavern to me is homestyle food - maybe more steak tip options besides 'chimi churri'?   In any event we dined here on the worst possible day of the year - valentine's day - where usually everyone from the kitchen to the bar staff are so busy that the dining experience suffers but that did NOT happen here!  They did a great job.  We voiced our only complaint, the French Onion Soup which tasted awesome was not that hot - they responded with free dessert!  The beer list is eclectic with British, German, and Micro-brews.  They wine list looked good.  The wife got the beef short rib special & I the lobster special.  Both were fantastic.  Prices are VERY reasonable.

A bit on the pricey side, but I was pleasantly surprised by the food. I got the grilled salmon burger, and it was very delicious. The salmon was very rich, cooked perfectly, topped with avocado, and came on brioche. The ginger, miso, and sesame gave it a nice zing. The burger was not too greasy, and the flavors all came together quite nicely. As a side, you get a choice of seasoned fries or salad. I got the fries, and they were also very good. They went above and beyond the typical fries I'd expect from a bar, and were actually really good even on their own. More...

I love this place! The atmosphere is amazing. They have live music every Thursday night and even without the music it's a fun place to be. I've eaten there twice now. The first time I got the pan seared Atlantic salmon and it was cooked PERFECTLY. I ordered a pumpkin drink which I think was a seasonal item and did not like it at all. The bartender was amazing and didn't make me pay for the drink and was kind enough to make me a new one. The second time i went there was for lunch. I ordered the fried pickles (delicious) and a salad. Mark was our bartender and we found out that he was one of the owners. It's not often you see an owner working behind the bar. He was very personable and knew a ton about the history of the building. He also suggested the New Old Fashioned which was a really great drink. I definitely plan on making this a regular spot! I highly recommend. It's a great date spot or place to bring a group of friends. More...

If you like cilantro, then this is your place! If you think (correctly) that cilantro is a vile weed, that shouldn't be anywhere near a plate of food, then you may want to make sure it's not on your dish before you leave. I just recently moved back to the area and found this place on my way home from work. I've ordered twice to go and specifically made it clear that I really don't want the overhyped, pesticide proof herb, touching anything I eat and both times the basil wannabe, stemmed flowering, soap tasting crabgrass has found its way onto my entree. I give the place 5 stars because the atmosphere, the beer and most of all the service, is fantastic! Also, I'm not a douche bag and I can pull what I don't like off. So there really isn't a reason to give them less of a grade based on a personal dislike.... but please, double check next time for me. Or I can. Whatever More...

Have been in several times since...Really great food & service. We have a 2 year old, and we come in with our cousins & friends who also have some two three and four year old children. ... They really have a great kids menu, and even though the atmosphere is not like the usual typical kid friendly restaurant, they really are great with kids, the menu is great, the service for the children was really great as well. It is nice to be able to go to a more upscale restaurant and bring the children.Highly recommend Menotomy Grill!Last year:Set outside on the patio we had a lovely time More...

I have been there several times for lunch and have liked the upscale casual atmosphere with good but not overpriced food and a satisfying beer wine selection. Today maybe I caught them on an off day but the staff was a little forgetful of the details you'd expect from good service. It also took about 30 minutes to get our food when the place was not that busy. Not the end of the world...but at lunch time people have tight schedules. I was forced to take my meal to go and eat half while driving and the rest between clients cold. It did taste good at least. Update a year later. Service had gotten better several times eaten there since. More...

You wouldn't think it, but this place serves amazing brunch, and there is never a wait. Plus they have a cute shaded outdoor dining patio. I'm even hesitant to write this review letting other's know about their brunch, but perhaps if it gets popular enough they might extend it to beyond just Saturday and Sunday~ More...

Excellent food. The staff is always friendly, and the service is always great. Great beer and drink selection. I often try something different on the menu every time I eat there, and I'm never disappointed. It's often crazy busy, so I'd recommend making a reservation if you plan on visiting. Highly recommended. More...

Great food and environment. The pork shank with cheesy bacon grits, sofrito and sunny side egg was a delicious blend of stick-to-your-ribs flavor. Would have been 5 stars if the wait staff wasn't flustered/overwhelmed with the busy Wednesday night crowd. More...

Went out for a lazy Sunday dinner, and then we decided to try this place out. Turned out it was a really good decision. Not only the food was beyond awesome, place and ambiance, and to top it off the band was awesome! No doubt I'll be coming back.

If you are a foodie and traveling to Arlington, this is one of the places you should try out! My personal favorites are their cheeseburger and flatbread pizzas.

Everything we ordered was great. My family immediately fell in-love with this Menotomy Grill. They serve food fast, and the waiters are friendly. We will definitely come back.

This place has been my favorite for years. Food is very tasty, can't just get enough of it. The cod cakes is on top of my list! BUT! You should never go out of this place without trying their flatbread pizza! It should be your top priority if you go to this precious gem of a place! Bottom-line, if you're a tourist, this should be the go to place for a great meal and live music. And if you're from around Arlington, why aren't you visiting yet? :D Thanks Menotomy! More...

Comfortable, popular casual dining/bar. Great food - had excellent NE clam chowder - very tasty thick and creamy. Steak tips with fries were outstanding- well marinated and cooked as requested - delicious! My companion had her favorite muscles - which she really enjoyed - and heirloom tomato salad which was "awesome!". We've bern to Menotomy Grill at least 7 times and have always had a great dining experience. Strongly recommended! More...

The food was awesome. I was amazed by their brunch menu, they offer french toasts, eggs, muffins and more. I'd skip breakfast for this kind of food.

Must try their chipotle wings. I also love the crab & artichoke dip those two is what you call a match made in heaven. Super love it here. Keep it up Menotomy!

Truly Arlington's best. One must not leave the city without visiting this foodie haven; it's a buffet for all eaters! Don’t miss the much talked about cinnamon stuffed French toast. They also serve a really good portion of eggs benedict for brunch. Definitely you'll get your money's worth and even more. More...

My partner and I always enjoyed the food. So far this restaurant has the best pork shank we have tasted in Arlington. The live music was exceptional too. The fish & chips were cooked just right. The service overall was outstanding. If you are looking for a place to dine I would highly recommend this place. More...

Relatively quiet, Texas themed (?) Restaurant with a nice L-shaped bar, with a few booths and tables by the windows. Parking is shared with other businesses, but seemed manageable after business hours as the pediatrics parking lot behind the gym in the back probably gets less use. I got a cranberry cider, the fried pickles (awesome sauce!), Sausage stuffing (GF!!!) - it's mostly sausage crumbles in a little bowl, and a scoop of ice cream. It was a decent bill for the atmosphere and the quality. More...

Waiter was excellent, prompt service, burgers cooked perfectly. Would have liked a rice pudding or Indian pudding on menu

I visited the Menotomy Restraunt again this evening and as expected was delighted by the entire experience. The bartenders were attentive to our every need as usual. They were very helpful with food suggestions which was tasty and we'll prepared and presented. We also met a person whom I believed was a manager who was honestly interested in how we enjoyed the food and beverage selection. Imagine my surprise after asking the bartender who this was and was told he was the owner. This restraunt presents itself as a very warm, inclusive, and friendly invironment. They have won me over and I plan on returning in the future. More...

I seriously can't believe that food could actually taste this good. I'm so satisfied and lost for words.

J

Menotomy is currently my go-to brunch spot in the area. The food is as strong as notable Somerville brunch spots like Highland Kitchen, and as opposed to a 60+ minute wait, you can usually get seated immediately for a party of 4. Highly recommend the Eggs in Purgatory, which is a couple eggs coddled in polenta, tomato sauce, pecorino. More...

While this is your typical American grill, the food is enjoyable and well done. The setting and relaxed atmosphere is what's makes this place better than other similar restaurants. I enjoyed the food and my visit and I'll likely come back for more! More...

It's our 4th time to visit this place. This time we ordered the valencian paella, I never thought that shrimps, mussels, peas and some meat in a bowl would taste that good. A perfect score is definitely well deserved. More...

We came for dinner. We thought we would be waiting for another 20 to 30 minutes for the food to be served but shortly after we’ve placed our orders the food came smoking hot. The staff was gracious, I’ll definitely go back next time. No wonder the house was full. More...

I LOVE this place, their burger is awesome, nothing super special or out of the ordinary, but a QUALITY burger. For apps, try their buffalo chicken balls. The only reason I am not giving five stars is because not every dish is my personal favorite, but this place has really quality comfort food and a charming atmosphere. The old maps, muskets and general set up of the restaurant stands out from a normal pub. I've had great experience with the staff and service, and even enjoyed some live music. I live in the area and is definitely my go to place! More...

Had a great time! Spoke with Mark- bartender/part owner. He talked us into breaking our previous dinner plans and come back for their raw oyster/ shrimp cocktail set-up, and I'm glad we did! TJ was shucking some of the freshest oysters we ever had, and their shrimp for the cocktails are huge. Jeffrey (I believe), our server, was really helpful and suggested a wine that I normally stay away from- and, of course, it was great as well. All in all, neither of us could think of a bad thing to say about the place! More...
