Patio seating on a fairly warm evening. The drinks and dessert (cheesecake and pot de creme) were particularly refreshing. They have a fantastic truffle fried cauliflower and a baby back rib appetizer. Our server was attentive and courteous, and the staff supported her very nicely.

Upstairs bar chairs are the most uncomfortable chairs ever. Please replace. You can’t even turn them a little to talk to a person next to you because they turn back to the bar. Very annoying.

Had a very large party (n=20+) for drinks and dinner. the space was large and well-aerated and the staff was attentive and very accomodating -even when more people showed than planned. can't go wrong with the drink selection and the food was pretty damn good as well. it is now our go to place after work in watertown when we need to laugh and enjoy some drinks and food after a very crappy day!
A photo of The Hourly Oyster House restaurant
• Oyster Bar • Cambridge

Was catching up with a good friend visiting Boston and needed a spot in Cambridge. The Hourly met the criteria - seafood-centric, Havrard Square-adjacent and positively reviewed. It was an inspired choice - we were quickly seated outside by the friendly hostesses, who explained the QR-code for menu access, as well as the daily special. Our waiter was outstanding - friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. We started with a split of 16 oysters, all from Massachusetts Bay, helpfully cross-referenced with accompanying info sheet. Meals were both delicious - cod and steak. I had a watermelon salad. Had no room for the included cheesecake, but it was boxed in advance and came with the check. The bar inside was busy, but well staffed. Open windows provided ample ventilation. All in all, highly recommended.
