  • River Bar @ Assembly Row. Cute menu, very limited. Had the grilled corn, with some sauce and fancy cheese that I don't remember, but it was DELICIOUS. I'm a super picky eater and was wary of the cheese on it, but it was fantastic. The cocktail menu was large and very good variety. Around $50 for both of us girls, with 2 drinks, a shot of tequila, and the corn. Not shabby at all. And the outdoor seating is adorable with little fireplaces and comfty chairs. Definitely a spot to go hang out after work.
  • This area has really bloomed these past few years. I'm from Medford and grew up with the Assembly Square Mall and Movie Theater, seeing stores open and close every so often. I am so glad they've cleaned up the space and turned it into a beautiful place to visit. There's shopping outlets, free parking across the street from the stores, a free parking garage, and inside the center are parking meters. With the space being under construction for a while, to see the cool additions coming to life is really great. It's a convenient place to shop and eat. They hold events to the public, you can subscribe to the General Assembly website to find up and coming things to do. This place is great for all aspects of life, whether you want to have drinks with friends, bring the kids to the lego store and then get ice cream, spend the day shopping, catch a movie, and more. There's a variety of restaurants and stores, Muse Art Bar, and if you want to walk to the parking lot across the street - you can enjoy the stores there as well. It's really coming along, and work is still in progress as they're now adding more restaurants, fitness spots, and a Lucky Strike bowling alley. The train station brings you directly to this location. Overall, I'm impressed by it all.
  • Nice set up... Nice selection of stores in the area. Nice retail/apartment style complex that makes it like its own little neighborhood. . Retail stores on the apartment side are higher end and the apartments are expensive and the area is still growing.
  • Ample free parking. Although, they have metered parking for some spots. That doesn't make sense. Great deals in the stores. I haven't been to any of the restaurants but the food smells good.
  • Love this place. It's always packed but they have amazing stores and restaurants. They have every store anyone would need to go to all in the same area.
