Located in a renovated historic building (which once housed the Wurthaus) in the heart of Harvard Square, Russell House Tavern takes the neighborhood's tavern experience to the next level with seasonally-inspired, classic dishes from New England and beyond.

Like sister restaurants and longtime Cambridge favorites, Grafton Street and Temple Bar, Russell House complements their culinary offerings with an array of carefully plotted potables - craft beers, an all-American wine list and a carefully-curated selection of handcrafted cocktails.

The two tiered dining room, with six varied social areas, provides a comfortable atmosphere for every occasion - from casual lunch breaks to after-work cocktails, private functions and everything in-between.
