With a faux fireplace and elbow-to-elbow tables, Grendel’s, which has been around forever, is a friendly, popular college pub. The food is good—spinach pie, quinoa stew, Portobello Reuben, burgers, and the like—and there’s always a daily lunch special for $6. Plus, every day from 5 to 7:30pm, all food is half price with the purchase of a $4 drink (consider the Paulaner Weissbier). In warm weather, a few tables are available on a small, appealing terrace. Open daily until 1am.
