Went here after work with some coworkers for a Thirsty Thursday type of thing. But instead of going to the dive bar, we decided to go classy this time. It was a success! The drinks were really good. Huge cocktail menu, and everyone was happy with what they ordered. There were also interesting beers on the menu. The appetizers we... More

Very good spot. Somewhat limited food menu, but still good options for most people. Nice beer selection and reasonably priced. The food is a bit overpriced for the quality, inventiveness, and portions, but worth checking out at least once. Yucca fries are pretty good. Try the roasted chicken and calm bake.

We had a nice meal but the selections were limited and while creative not that tasty. I had the lobster pasta that had little lobster and my wife has average pork snittzel. No salad , some good bread, and small portions. Pricey.

Went in on a Saturday night before a show in central square. Seated right away which started to be a concern. Took a while to get any attention. Place was 90% empty at 630pm. I ordered the double cheeseburger requested well done and my wife ordered the salmon. My burger came out rare and her salmon really raw in the... More

Drinks tend to be a bit weak but the bar snacks are tasty and the mains are good. Good find for the area - right near the Central Square T; has a parking deck next to it

There is a 6 page cocktail list. Need I say more?? Unique concoctions and stellar variety. The vibe is chill and effortless. The food is noteworthy but the drinks are the star. Don't miss it for happy hour!

Boyfriend and I went to Green Street the night before Valentine's Day to escape the crowds. It was easy to make the reservation and we were seated promptly when we arrived. All the food arrived quickly as well, which was nice! Besides that, the rest of the experience was very sub-par. We got the cheese plate and charcuterie for appetizers,... More

Green Street is a small and cozy neighborhood bar whose excellent cocktails belie its unassuming appearance. The cocktail list here will impress you when the bartender or waiter hands it to you. What you don't know is that is just a small portion of the actual cocktail list: Ask for the book, and prepare to be amazed. The cocktails are... More

We've been there many times, it's our go-to place at the square, and most of the times the food is great. The menu changes frequently; I can't say I liked everything I had there, but I had some really great food and some decent dishes, nothing bad. I highly recommend the drinks - the mixed drinks menu is reason enough... More
