The "Lunch in Harvard Square" Blog - Restaurant Reviews

Since starting to work in the Square in mid-August, I'm trying to eat lunch at a new restaurant every day until I can't find any more. Here's my list of the Top Ten Lunch Restaurants in Harvard Square (Food Only). Got a suggestion on a new lunch spot for me? New Restaurants to Try in Harvard Square.

55. 11-7 Shay's 58 JFK Street. Summary: Good food, nice pub atmosphere, good value.

Lunch at Shay's was a nice surprise. We had a company lunch, all five of us, and four enjoyed the food; only Jennifer found her sandwich too salty. And, Rob and Tom split a beer (which probably helped them to enjoy the meal).

Shay's is really a bar - it's hopping at night, with a young crowd - but at lunch the smell of beer isn't overwhelming and it isn't crowded. Our server was very pleasant and checked in on us a number of times.

The menu is quite limited - pretty much bar food - but was fine. The veggie burger was actually not a flat patty and looked edible (and Tom enjoyed it), I had a turkey sandwich with too much turkey but still tasty, Rob's tuna melt satisfied. Nice accompaniments of tortilla chips with salsa.

About $9 per person, including sandwich and drink and tip.
