A large craft beer list is the main attraction at this hopping saloon with New American plates.- Google
"My favorite beer bar for selection, service, price and setting."
"Do not miss the polenta fries and lamb belly."

Lord Hobo is dark and a little bit mysterious. I was expecting a place that got raucous and served typical bar fair (best eaten in the dark with gallons of beer) but it turned out to be a sly little bar. The menu was surprisingly gourmet, without a whiff of a buffalo wing! Imaginative salads, polenta chips, corn on the cob, big wholesome mac and cheeses and hearty chilis. They also have a very healthy selection of beers and wines.

Beer Geek paradise. 40 draught lines, a few carefully selected (generally rarer) bottles, and food to match. If you're not sure, ask for a little sample. The bar staff is also extremely competent and capable to answer any beer-y questions that you may have. A short walk to Cambridge Brewing Company. So make sure you visit both, no matter where you start!

I love this place. The craft beer selection is great, the cocktails are inventive and delicious, the service is nice and the food is really really good. Do not miss the polenta fries and lamb belly. It's a dark atmosphere perfect for winter dining but tucked away in a lovely part of Cambridge. Definitely worth the walk from Central square. One of my favorite dive/non-dive/hipster bars.

Lord Hobo, hipster central, beer nerds for days. Last time I was here I saw someone wearing google glass and a video game t-shirt. A mixture of the well to do and the MIT students. Nota bena: Place is loud. Every time I've been im pretty disappointed by the food (Mom and I decided its a burger place if you are eating). We had salads that were weird, a cheese plate that is atrociously overpriced (for $17 you'd expect to get a little more cheese, or at least have the person be able to EXPLAIN the cheese) and some polenta fires that were pretty dang tasty (garlic aioli, fried and cheese... can't go wrong there). But lets be real, if you're going to Lord Hobo its because of the beer. The selection is vast and interesting. The downside, its pricey. Like most beers were $10 it seemed like. The waitress, although super friendly, wasn't the best at making recommendation (though props for being able to talk knowledgeably about the beer). I told her I liked IPA's but wanted to branch out... she suggested an IPA. Hmm... my mom said she typically liked brown ales and she suggested the one beer on the menu. OK well that is super helpful. You might think I am nit-picking but Lord Hobo is a beer bar (and not a cheap one) and I tend to hold those sort of places to a higher standard. For the cost its not worth it. There are plenty of solid beer joints that are more reasonably priced with better food options.

Came to hang out and eat dinner, but the service was horrible and the servers were very unfriendly. I would never recommend this place of Lord hobo

I'll give Lord Hobo three stars only because they do have a great beer selection. If I were to rate it on service, it would be one star. I totally understand the craft beer craze and the mad rush people are making to reach great beer, but service is what keeps people coming back. The last time I made it there was during the middle of the day (not crowded) and the service was decent. The staff does help with recommendations and samples to taste before ordering, which is nice. But, the overall feeling leaves me striking this place off my list.

Very satisfying meal for a weary traveler. As stated elsewhere, fantastic variety of beers on tap. Being a West Coaster I branched out and went with a couple brews from the East, enjoying them both -- the breakfast stout in particular was dang delicious. Food was good too, curried brussels sprouts and a no-frills grilled cheese that complimented the beer nicely. As I was finishing up the meal an older gentleman sidled up to the bar next to me and proceeded to hold court. He may have been the hobo king the place was named after.
