For almost 40 years this cozy Irish pub has been a hangout for Cambridge locals, students and intellectuals. Known for its great Guinness beer and intimate live music, this neighborhood spot makes everyone feel welcome - even first-times feel like they?ve been coming here for years. The pub offers an eclectic mix of live music, everything from blues to rock to country, and in the past even hosted the likes of Bonnie Raitt and Van Morrison. Plough & Stars also serves lunch, diner, brunch and has a Sunday Night Chicken & Fish Fry. Favorite dishes include the cheese grits, spicy pan-fried catfish, crispy Jamaican wings, and the banger press, made of grilled and sliced Irish sausage, tomato, and sharp cheddar. The place has an old comfortable feeling with its walls of red-and-black marbled paint and wood paneling, but since it was recently renovated, it also feels clean and contemporary. For a slice of local Cambridge, Plough & Stars is the perfect place to wet your whistle.
