Great place to grab a few drinks. Very authentic feeling and great place to get the full Union Square experience. The food is just decent- but fine for apps and a quick fix with drinks.
We picked The Independent after walking by earlier in the day and being impressed with the modern pub look, alas the look was the best part. The menu had the usual burgers, fish & chips and salmon - we chose the fish & chips, a Bluefish pate and French Onion soup. The appetisers were fine but the fish & chips... 更多
We were there about 3pm on a Sunday and they were only serving brunch. That is a very late brunch. They did have 1-2 lunch items on the brunch menu though. Waiter was attentive and friendly. Food was okay. It came out cold so it may have been better warm.
We were visiting the Cambridge area and strolling around when we spotted the farmers market going on in the parking lot. After having a walk through there we discovered this restaurant and decided to give it a try. The food and atmosphere were really great!

The Independent is one of the better sit-down restaurants in Union Square. I'm yet to try anything from their menu I did not like, they have a great alcohol selection, and their trivia nights are small but very fun. A comfortable spot for lunch, dinner, or a couple of drinks with trivia.
The service is friendly and normally fast. The food is average and too expensive for what they offer, but if you want to eat at a nice table indoors, it is a good ambient and ok to bring children.
We invited friends and family to a book signing event at The Independent. Despite all of the mayhem we created, the Independent staff was attentive, friendly and enthusiastic. Never a grouchy look - and I'm sure we drove them crazy. Our numerous orders for numerous appetizers were always served promptly.
