I had the Peruvian quinoa stew (held the cheese) and a cold beer. Perfect meal!
Proceeds from this particular Nantucket beer benefit OCEARCH education and science programs. It was a very tasty and feel-good kind of meal. We'll be back!

The appetizers were average & the beer was okay. I guess I can't complain since everything I ate was half price. However, this really is a 'den', that being said there is a terrible musty basement smell.

Stopped for dinner after a great time at Fenway. Staff were really unfriendly, not interested in serving, can only comment on the jarred salsa and chips because we never got the food we ordered.

Located in the heart of Harvard Square, Grendel’s is a great place to go for great drinks, cheap food and a cozy, relaxed spot to meet up with friends. It’s a bit of a dive, with some tight quarters but if you’re ok with that, you’ll love it here. There is a pretty solid selection of beer, plus a few special mixed drinks for various occasions. While the menu is really just typical bar food, it’s still pretty tasty. It can get pretty crowded, which is usually a sign of a place you can count on! If you want an inexpensive, low-key night out in Harvard Square, check out Grendel’s and have a drink for me!

The outdoor seating area is next to a little strip of grass where musicians play, so you have built-in entertainment. The food for lunch was excellent, so we went for dinner a few nights later and were slightly disappointed. I had the spinach pie and it was delicious at lunch but overcooked at dinner. Also, read the small print on their 50 percent off food for dinner. Most of what we ordered didn't fit their guidelines, so of the seven of us, only one got a half-price meal. Also, the inside seating was quite noisy and not as pleasant an experience as outdoors.
