About the restaurant
Glass House is a restaurant, bar and event space that serves as a modern day meeting house offering contemporary food and drink inspired by both American and international cuisine.

Glass House is located in Kendall Square, next to Charles River Canoe and Kayak and the Pilgrim Parking Garage.

Once the center of the nation’s glass-making industry, East Cambridge attracted the most accomplished artisans from across the globe and produced patents for the cutting edge glassworks of its day. Glass House is a nod to the neighborhood’s glass architecture, its inventive history, and its contemporary focus on discovery and exploration.

Beautiful setting with an outdoor space. Convenient parking. Service was excellent and the prices were acceptable. Food was fresh, but not special.

Delicious American bistro menu with international influences. Cocktails and drinks to cheers all day and night. But the best part? The great time that you and your party are going to have in a place design to gather.

SO, SO good! YET, we went specifically for the duck poutine that was on the online menu. It was not on the menu when we were there. In fact our waitperson hadn't seen it for awhile! So, we wish it had been there!

We have dined at gvd grill at Fairview inn several times. Service is consistently great. Our server last night was bubbly and great. We got a few apps (steamers,French fries, and tuna tarta, Greek salad and a Caesar salad. All was perfect and the salad so fresh. Where it fell short, was the steak tips that the bday customer ordered. This was the first for us with steak tips. Unfortunately, the tips were thin leather like pieces of steak. Completely not edible. It was disappointing bc it was our friends first time dining here and we were telling them how everything here was so good. There were 4 of us. Two of us had the salmon;delicious) and one had the seafood casserole(also delicious) We ended our meal with a bday dessert(brownie and cookie with ice cream). So good. This was the first time a meal was sent back, the bday diner ended up having no meal.

About the restaurant
Inside and out, Ocean Terrace offers a refined dining experience against the stunning backdrop of Cape Cod Bay. At this Cape Cod restaurant, take a seat and sip on a refreshing glass of wine while gazing over the water’s horizon.

Guests can dine on elevated New England fare at every meal, including a grilled lobster roll with basil aioli, a hearty bowl of traditional clam chowder, and delectable oysters on the half shell. When the evening grows dark, gather out on the terrace and warm your spirits over fire bowls and conversation.

Important Notice: As per Commonwealth Guidelines, an item of food prepared on site must be ordered with an initial alcoholic beverage order; no exceptions.
