Located In Waltham
Due to the mandatory statewide shutdown of all restaurants in the Commonwealth, beginning Tuesday, March 17th, we will be suspending operations at the Mad Raven in Waltham and closing our doors temporarily until the restrictions are lifted.
This will be the first time in 20 years where we will not be raising a pint to celebrate St. Patrick’s day together but we hope that wherever you are, you will raise a pint and keep your spirits strong as we all do our part to get through these unprecedented times together.
Please stay safe and healthy and we will surely miss you during this time apart. We can't wait to serve you again.

At The Mad Raven, you can gather to enjoy a pint, great food, the warmth of good friends, catch a game or the excitement of live music.
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."
