Leaky Pete's is closed as of September 2015. Don''t waste your time looking for it. One day it was open and the next day it was closed...without warning.

Excellent food served in a casual setting. Seats only 55 but is always crowded. Excellent service, very friendly.

Sorry...double whammy here. It is hard to mess up serving oysters...and they didn't, but the rest of their food is not even up to 'bar food' level [inconsistent, cold when should be hot, etc.]. The service is another matter: it's like 'hey....you don't matterMore

Is is unfortunate that your find yourself in a position to disparage a restaurant or bar based on an experience of "inconsistent" temperature of food. I would like to know what you had for dinner besides the oysters? Restaurants and Bars do experience an "off"...More

Came here before dinner for a few drinks with friends. Neat atmosphere and great wine list. Many locals hang here for good wine and good food. Music on some nights is good also.

Sorry to hear you were disappointed about not "seeing a wine bar". The tag line is something added to thwart the local color that used to enter this location under a prior business entity. We were the only "wine bar" when we first opened in...More

I've only been to Leaky's twice in the five years I've lived in Cambridge. The first was for the TR3 concert & the second was for their "Paddy In The Alley" celebration. Green beer, whiskey, bagpipes & a Lucky Charm eating contest. I'll be there...More

Living in Cambridge and only visiting Leaky Pete's twice in 5years is the first problem! LOL I'm not sure what your intention was when you wrote your review as it is very vague, so I'm not really sure what you were looking for. Leaky Pete's...More

Went down for dinner a couple weeks ago. It was half-price wine night. Went in at six, place was almost empty. Music promised at seven. Had some great baked oysters with barbecue sauce. Delish. Grouper sandwich for me and a grouper taco for my date....More

This was a nice, casual experience during our first visit to the area … a local establishment, informal and friendly. The bar drink service was very good but the flatbread was not worth the price (about $10). There was a skimpy amount of tomato in...More

Leaky Petes: A fun, casual bar serving great food. Legend has it that back in the day, the old owner broke up a fight by shooting into the ceiling and ever since the place has leaked, hence the name Leaky Petes. Specializing in a fabulous wine assortment, oysters and hand crafted brews. Daily specials, house smoked pork, beef and salmon. Don't miss our Blackened crab cake with roasted lemon aioli or our Roast Beef on Kimmelweck.
