Hot and tired from walking around Harvard Square and Harvard's many yards, Grafton Street Pub and Grill was just the thing we needed. Extensive pub-style menu, fast service with a chilled glass of wine, excellent food, and the Harvard street scene helped with the ambiance....More

Very pleasant elegant place serving healthy and elevated brunch and wine by the glass, but yet it is also an Irish pub with sports on a couple TVs, Guinness and busy bar. Food was light and tasty, enjoyable lunch fare, giving 5 stars for service....More

Server was pleasant and efficient. Wings were meaty, moist, and well-seasoned. Caesar salad was good. Scallops large, perfectly cooked on a bed of creamy risotto. Creme brûlée was average. Manhattans nicely made, good pour. Would go back.

Opened in 1996, Grafton Street Pub & Grill has been a beloved institution of Harvard Square for almost two decades. This neighborhood hotspot is named after the spirited cobblestone-lined shopping district in Dublin's famed Temple Bar area. Grafton Street deftly combines the warmth and coziness of a traditional neighborhood pub with the aesthetic of a contemporary restaurant. During the summer months, guests can enjoy al fresco dining on Grafton Street's spacious sidewalk patio. The restaurant offers full bar service and boasts a seasonally-changing wine list with over 75 varieties, as well as a robust selection of craft beers from several local breweries.
