  • Your Hangover aid: The Quickening. A Collins glass filled w/ Meletti Amaro, chartreuse green, & Rogue Dead Guy Ale, before being chased by a shot of Fernet & a plate of bacon (yes, PLATE...OF...BACON)
  • Russell House Tavern in Harvard Square has $1 oysters every night after 11pm.
  • Order the off-menu "secret burger". It's their regular burger with a deep fried, poached egg on top.
  • Charcuterie plate is delish!
  • I want to take the charcuterie plate out back and get it pregnant. It's that good.
  • The poached egg is a big winner. Big.
  • Delightfully long menu, thorough beer list and creative applications of offal. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Avoid the steak frites. An odd butterfly cut that leaves much to be desired.
  • Crab cake sandwich is exceellent. Nice selection of beers.
  • The breakfast pizza, homemade pastrami, and homemade bloody Marys are spectacular!
  • The burgers are to die for.
  • Order the Secret Burger!
  • Bacon-infused bourbon, house bloody mix, crispy bacon. The bourbon combined with the spicy bloody mix leaves your mouth deliciously on fire, and the slice of bacon adds a yummy breakfast feel.
  • Drink black ops. If you believe it exists
  • Get the egg dish... it is to die for
  • They have 1 dollar oyster hours from 11pm every night and 4-5pm every day The oysters here are very fresh. Their pizzas are awesome too!!
  • Great beer and liquor list. Burger was great, and fries were crispy and good. Great stop!
  • Great place & great burgers! I loved the house grass-fed burger. Awesome staff too.
  • Flatbread pizzas, rotating secret burgers, and oysters
  • the burger is my personal favorite (with double fried fries!!) but the chicken sandwich is also strong. $1 oysters (usually wellfleets) from 4 to 6 and after 11pm weekdays.
