Cambridge Common

Cambridge Common is a comfy, welcoming neighborhood restaurant offering celebrated comfort food, huge portions, cheap prices, and a full bar with 31 brews on tap (often the first spot in New England to introduce the latest and greatest microbrews). Our large bar, inviting wooden booths, and warm lighting, combined with our über-friendly staff, have made us a local hotspot and cozy hangout. As the folks at Hungry Boston say, “everybody goes home happy from Cambridge Common.”

Celebrations & Meetings

Whether you’re looking for a casual buffet or a ritzy cocktail reception, we’ll do our best to make sure that you and your guests have a blast!

Cambridge Common can accommodate 50 people for semi-private parties in our dining room. We can also throw your shindig in the Lizard Lounge, which holds 105 people, or even the entire restaurant, which can entertain up to 175.

Lunch, brunch, dinner … we’ve even been known to host the occasional breakfast meeting.
