After searching the main downtown area of Cambridge for a place for two couples to eat lunch we selected The High Spot. The menu was inviting as was the setting which was only a block off the main drag which on this particular Saturday was busy and loud. The four of us enjoyed a light lunch and were well tended...

This is a nice medium size place with a small bar, but an adjacent room means plenty of seating. Staff was very attentive although we were here on a Sunday night. They have a rotating selection of local beers and a good variety of food on the menu. Chicken and waffles were very good although the sauce that was on... More

We fell into High Spot the first time, but returned with a purpose the second time. Good food at reasonable prices. Definitely a go-to place in Cambridge!

Had a really good meal. (& I'm not always easy to please) Nice spot- liked that they didn't have too many tables cramped together. Nice drink options- cocktails and beer. Had a beer-nice glass-long and big. Turned out to be Happy Hour which was a plus but only found out afterwards which would likely have impacted my orders. Overall service... More

Vary charming intimate Pub in historic district. A fabulous Crab Cake Sandwich. Great service. A small but respectable list of cold beer from Porter, Belgian to IPA.

The place we had planned to have our lunch at was closed so we decided to give this place a try. We were so pleased we chose to eat here. The food was absolutely delicious. The servings were generous and the prices reasonable. We did order from the dinner menu but I would think the lunch offerings would also have... More

Great Restaurant, Great Service and Great Food and Drink. The service was very good, as was the food. Very Nice atmosphere, restaurant was romantic and chic, yet not overly fancy or stuffy. This is a very nice restaurant in the quaint little town of Cambridge Maryland. When I couldn't decide on one of their draft beers, the waitress brought me... More

My husband, 14 year old and I loved this restaurant. My 14 yo devoured his shrimp and Brussels. He said it was one of the best shrimp dishes he's ever had (we travel a lot so that means a lot). I really liked my shepards pie. I don't think it should have been called that (no whipped or mashed potato).... More

We stopped here because we wanted burgers before we went to the movies. We started with corn and oyster fritters that were delicious. Not very oystery, but I wasn't really sure what to expect when I ordered them, so I was really not disappointed with their tastiness. The waiter failed to return for a long time to take our entree...
