In Irish mythology ravens were symbols of freedom and transcendence, having the power to soar up above the earth into the heavens, and return to bring messages from the gods. Although its reputation was sometimes dubious, the raven was considered an oracular bird, often representing the upsets and crises of life which were deemed necessary for anything new to be created. In lore today, the Raven is a symbol of prophecy and protection.
Like the bird, The Mad Raven Pub and Restaurant in Waltham, is now one of the area’s truly unique places. It captures the mythical nature of its name with a rich old world feel yet a modern twist.
"I've been coming here for years and have always had a solid experience at Mad Raven. Delicious food, good selection of beers, and the staff has always been friendly and attentive. I'd highly recommend their brunch (Bloody Marys were excellent) and my go-to dish are the Turkey Tips."
"Really excellent burger, I had forgotten how good it was, served perfect temp and with a nice crust and tasty spice blend. Notably, these were unusually good sweet potato fries too. Paired with a Guinness and Allagash White."
