I asked for a recommendation for a nearby restaurant open around 10pm near the T stop at Central Square, and this seemed to be the only choice close-by. Had a chicken sandwich with salad, and clam chowder. Good service, ok food and comfortable surroundings coming...More

Nice Irish pub in Cambridge had a few pints there during a conference trip. Doesn't have the tacky, manufactured feel that other Irish pubs in the US can have. The right level of tat hanging from the walls. Pints were good, and they seem to...More

Field is an old Central Sq standars. Great Guiness and other drafts too. Not fancy, regulars like that it has a lived in feel. If weather is nice go out the back door to the patio and get away from the Central Sq noise but...More

Decent Irish bar. Pretty crowded on a Thursday night but fun atmosphere. Note that it is cash only, so come prepared! They had Carlsberg on tap, which is my favorite and I rarely see in Boston so that was a treat! Would come back.

An excellent go-to bar in Cambridge. Nice beer selection, about the same prices as everywhere in Cambridge. Friendly waitstaff. Awesome patio -- if the weather is at all nice, this is the best bar patio in Cambridge. Food is decent. Cash only. They don't blast...More

Stopped in while waiting for a show to start next door at Improv Boston. We sat out back on the patio with the college crowd. I like the elevated bench seats. It was a casual, laid back summer night. The Field has a nice unpretentious...More
