Party Earth Miracle of Science Bar & Grill Review

The Scene

Techies, nerds, and geniuses from all over Boston flock to Miracle of Science Bar & Grill, a geek-chic, open-floored venue that attracts throngs of students and staff from MIT, Tufts, and Harvard.

Techies, nerds, and geniuses from all over Boston flock to Miracle of Science Bar & Grill, a geek-chic, open-floored venue that attracts throngs of students and staff from MIT, Tufts, and Harvard.

Once the brainy patrons finish analyzing the mathematical probability of cramming their large groups onto the two benches by the expansive front windows, they settle in to share burgers and beer with the rest of the good-natured crowd.

Chalkboard-topped tables allow guests to draw doodles instead of proofs, while a much larger chalkboard above the high-top tables and lab stools announces the menu in the form of a periodic table of food and drinks.

A boxy bar and a central triangular table provide more space for the groups of chatty artists and grad students intent on unwinding after a day of study, and for the young professionals from nearby businesses who pop in for lunch and dinner.

Always bustling with a fun-loving crowd, Miracle of Science allows even the most dedicated scholar to rationalize a night off.

Tip from Jonah:

Definitely try the Ronie burger, Miracle’s signature item. It’s spicy – jalapeños, cayenne pepper, and cheddar jack cheese – so you’ll want to wash it down with a Left Hand Milk Stout.

Miracle of Science Bar & Grill User Reviews

Fantastic but tiny
Delia H. Jun 24, 2013
The food here is great, and it's a good spot for a date or brunch. The only downside, of course, is the tiny size of the place. At night I often don't bother and head over to People's Republic or somewhere in Central instead, especially if I'm with more than one or two other people. On the positive side, they usually have soccer games running during the day, especially during the World Cup. There isn't usually a big crowd for that since most soccer fans head to Phoenix Landing, but in the summer it can make for a great afternoon of day drinking. The menu, both food and beer, isn't huge, but it packs a punch and has a lot of variety. The staff is friendly, but if you're trying to squeeze in when you clearly don't fit (or you're getting in the way of people sitting at tables) they're not going to love you.
The evolution of your typical science laboratory...

Miracle of Science is such a fun spot. It brings me right back to freshman year biology, except I got to eat a veggie burger and people watch out the spacious windows, without getting into trouble. The food is very tasty and there is a diverse selection of drinks and beer. The science theme is well done with menu items listed as elements on the periodic table. Try to get a spot near it, if you can, it can be a little hard to read. Miracle of Science is small but this adds to the ambiance. And if you’re lucky maybe you’ll end up near a student from nearby Harvard or MIT and you’ll learn a fun factoid or two!
