    price range? Green Street is casual, but some may find it pricey.

      Eat at Pho N Rice, on Beacon St!

        I'd like to keep it relatively cheap.

          Diner on the Cambridge/Somerville line at Danny's Diner on Beacon St. HTH, HAND, etc.

          how about entrees under $20, eclectic is fine, perhaps with a good beer selection?

              Very casual, Redbones, Davis Sq., Somerville. Plenty of beer.

                  Second the Garden at the Cellar. Trina's Starlite Lounge is good too. The Independent in Union Sq - sit in the bar.

                  East Coast Grill is one of my favorite places in Cambridge for dinner. The food is consistent and the cocktails are great. Its always got a very fun atmosphere too.

                    I wouldn't describe it as cheap, though.

                    Would you consider going just over the Cambridge line into Arlington? I always have a great and cheap time at Za.
