Great nightlife spot to hit up if you are in Philly. Attractive folk in their early twenties flock to the dance floor here. I've been several times and it has always been a fun time. A little on the high side as far as drinks go, but

Specialty drinks are way small for $8.00, but having one with brunch is acceptable. My favorite day is Sunday there and my favorite meal is Brunch, but the last 3 times I have been there, the over-easy eggs were served with broken yolks and running down the plate. Acceptable in a diner, maybe, but at these prices, certainly not! One of the Eggs Benedict had a curious bubble in it and when poked, it was full of vinegar which made my daughter sick. I can't figure out why a chef would take the trouble to prepare such nice meals and then send them out so sloppily presented. It's as if their attitude is, OK I cooked it, now eat it and shut up! Maybe next time we eat first and just go for the sesiun and beers.

Pros: Free Irish Music Sesiuns on Sundays

Cons: Way too overpriced and undersized drinks

It might seem like a contradiction to say that a place has "space" as a pro and "no room to move" as a con, but it's accurate. Plough and the Stars' biggest problem is that it draws so much of a crowd. The staff at Plough are great. Most are very knowledgeable about beers on tap, as well as what each beer is and what food it might go well with. If you roll through there a lot, the bouncers will definitely remember you. The bartenders are no joke. You can give them a five drink order and it's very rare you'll find anything isn't right. They also pour a pretty heavy drink; there are no watered down drinks at Plough.

Before the crowd arrives, there's ample room on two floors to enjoy yourself. You can find plenty of space to sit as well as stand or dance to the good range of music they play. Some may not like it, but I personally enjoy not feeling like I have American Top 40 on in the bar all the time.

On the down side...well, it does get damn crowded. And when it gets crowded, it's hot, especially upstairs. There are also certain times when you go to close out your tab and have to pick your jaw up from the ground. But just remind yourself that each of the drinks had more liquor in it than, say, Mad River, and you suddenly don't feel so bad. Did I mention that they don't have a cover, but do have a gigantic TV to keep the game on while you're there?

Cons: Prices, no room to move on weekends

I have only been to this place once but the food was amazing, I ordered the lamb kabobs which I highly recommend! The price is also amazing for the quality of food. The atmosphere is great and during our dining here there was a man doing caricatures of people which was interesting and entertaining to watch.

Plough has a strange vibe to it.We have gone in a few times for a drink and found the staff not as friendly as we like. The drinks are small and over priced.We never stayed long enough to try the food.

A great atmosphere- Irish inspired with and American feel. Not only do they offer drinks at reasonable prices they have good food, dancing, and a fantastic ecclectic collection of music played by the DJ. It's hard not to find anyone singing or dancing along to the music and not having fun. I recommend a night out with friends in Philly go here!

My friends and I stumbled upon this place in October, and loved the way it looked inside, so we grabbed a little table by the fireplace to have a few drinks. They had a nice special cocktails list for the season and each of us got a different drink - all were fantastic. We went again a few weeks ago and they had an updated St. Patrick's Day style drink list, and all the ones we tried were great!
Although we haven't tried the food there, we love the way that we can go in and relax by the fireplace with a few drinks. Both times were during the week (a Wednesday and a Thursday night) so I'm guessing the same might not be true for a Saturday. Drinks were a little pricey, but this IS Philadelphia. Definitely hope to try the food soon!

We had visited The Plough for a private birthday party, after we walked around the block, we finally stumbled upon it. There was a cocktail hour until the guest of honor arrived and the drinks were very expensive. Dinner was ordered from the prefix menu and was served around 10:00 pm. The food was presented very well and it was very appetizing worth the $$. I didn't get the whole Irish pub feel, especially when a d.j arrived and the thumping of the music filled the bar. At this point noone at the birthyday party could converse because noone could hear one another. When 11:00 rolled around, it was standing room only and patrons were dancing where they were standing. It was very difficult to get from one side of the bar to the other and felt as if I was being stampeded. It seems as if the allowable capacity by the fire marshall had been maxed out. This would not have my establishment on choice to hold an adult intimate birthday party. I would not recommend visiting The Plough in the Stars during the late hour if you are not into the "club" scene.

This old world style restaurant/pub is dripping with charm and atmosphere. You will think you are on the 'old sod' here, with authentic Irish music around an open hearth. But the food is also wonderful with Irish inspired gourmet dishes and fresh ingredients. Great beer selection, too.

I had dinner here with friends. It was great and we loved our meal. It was more expensive than ?Pub? food and there was not too much of a ?pub? feel to it. Instead, it is a nice place for ?adults,? who want to have a good dinner, enjoy some nice cocktails, and have a good evening without the drunken frat boys or the boisterous behaviors that can happen at other locations, especially pubs.

Found this place randomly while exploring the neighborhood with my girlfriend on a Sunday morning, so went in with minimum expectations. Boy were we in for a treat! Initially was going to order their shepard's pie but opted for their omelette after being told that it might take longer then average to prepare because they just started making their mashed potatoes. That remark caught me by surprise and made me think we werent at some typical diner type joint after all. We did wait for our dishes longer then expected, but their omelette & home fries did not disappoint at all, and was worth the extra wait compared to places where you're ordering meals that's already premade and simply being heated up. My girlfriend enjoyed her chicken potato hash and was pleasantly surprised with their spicy sauce.

The atmosphere of the restaurant was very nice to boot and we ate upstairs overlooking the balcony.

Overall, was a gem of a find, and I'd say definitely worth coming back again for a different meal to further explore this pleasant discovery.

The Plough and the Stars offer a Prix Fix Menu on their web site but it is not honored at the restuarant. My part went there to have dinner and wanted the Prix Fix Menu. One for $43 dollars and the other two for $33 dollar menu. We were told once seated that this is ONLY offered for large parties or on SPECIAL occasions. This is not stated on the web page(check it out) My thinking is that they were slow so they were not going to honor the Prix Fix Menu...why have an it advertized on the web page if it is not offered. We left and had a marvalous meal at the Mexican Post between Front and 2nd on Chestnut street.

My wife and I came for a Sunday lunch when visiting Philly. I had the plough omelet, which was pretty good at $9, and my wife had a crab and fish sandwhich which was pretty decent for $10. The scones came cold to the table, and warming them would have been a nice touch. Service was pretty decent, and the setting was nice. I felt that their food was a bit overpriced compared to quality (other items were more expensive, but we feel like we ordered best value on the menu), but given the setting, it was fine.

I've recently moved to Philadelphia and have been looking for an Irish pub to frequent. This one is a bit upscale, with some traditional favorites, yet also with some new dishes. I particularly liked the atmosphere. I was there once for a few drinks, and they was an acoustic Irish band playing. They have all the Irish brews you could hope for, and plenty of seating at the bar. I'd recommend it for dinner or just a drink. definitely a gem in old city.

While my husband and I enjoyed the drinks here, the food was not the best. It was quite expensive and they were out of tuna for a dish he ordered and were replacing it with a whitefish. He got seafood rissoto which was delicious although the shrimp was a bit overcooked, and I got the pan seared venison. The venison was cooked pretty well and tasted wonderful, but the vegetable of the day was a single large broccoli sprout. The mashed potatoes were atrociously bland - more like whipped boiled potatoes. The bread that came with the meal was also somewhat stale. The bathrooms are awful. Not dirty, just too shabby to be located in such an ambient restaurant. However, through all this the service was pretty good and the drinks were reasonably priced and creative and delicious. This restaurant is a great place to go to enjoy drinks, but I would not recommend eating there.

Can anything this expensive really be called a pub? Well, name quibbles aside this is a lovely upscale restaurant an bar. Dark wood furniture, a working fireplace and heated outdoor seating make it easy to get comfortable. Dining is around 15$ a plate, beers hovering around 5$. The scene tends to be middle aged, lots of laughing and converation. Kids are welcome, and fit perfectly at the tiny little tables near the fire.

The food is outstanding but the service is so welcoming and prompt. The big screen TV was long overdue! I really enjoyed watching the World Cup there this summer, then around 5 or 6 pm the musicians came in for a weekly jam session, a hiden secret in Philly...sitting by the fire, on a 2 foot stool with a Pint of Guiness, my lovely server named "Maureen" and the sound of the flutes & fiddles......ahahh to be in Ireland again, only 30 minutes from my house!

A group of eight went out for my wife's birthday on Friday 7/14. I was sceptical after reading many of the reviews regarding noise and crowds at the Plough. We made reservations for 6:15 arrived at 6:30, they are very accommodating for tardiness as long as you call. We sat upstairs on the balcony near the bar. There are great views of this beautiful building from upstairs. I believe it's a former coin exchange from the late 1700's. The waitress came right over and took our drink orders which took moments to arrive. There was a speaker over the bar right near our table which was immediately turned down when we asked them to. Other than that there was nothing unusual about the decibel level. The appetizers, entrees, and desserts were excellent. Not one person in our party had anything but positive feedback on their experience. I highly highly highly recommend the mussels for appetizer. The wait staff, bartenders, and host were very attentive, polite, and warm. We would come back again without hesitation. We're new to the restaurant scene in Philadelphia and are a little overwhelmed by all the choices. We've found a favorite in the Plough & the Stars.

while the restaurant was nice and the service was decent, this IS NOT an IRISH bar/pub/restaurant. Nothing about the decor or the menu selection is Irish and even the beer selection is questionable. If you are looking for a nice evening out this place will suit you. However if you are on a quest for true Irish fare, you'd do best to go somewhere else

They overbooked during Restaurant Week and we had to wait over an hour even with a reservation. Because they overbooked they were out of the best dishes, our wine, and they had to make a lot of substitutions. Our waitress couldnt do much to help the situation except be apologetic. The place itsself is cool with a lofted dining balcony. The food was normal cost for Old City but very average tasting, and it got really noisy because the bar was packed by 9pm Wed and they were blaring bar music.

Went there during Restaurant week. For appetizers had avocado mousse and tapas, both good. Main course, the sirloin and the pork tenderloin, both good. The steak was really tasty and juicy. Our disapponitment was with the mashed potatoes - they used the instant powder stuff. That ruined the whole dinner. Hope this wasn't done due to it being restaurant week because the cost of everything was close to the $30/person. Desert was standard.

The Plough & the Stars is a very upscale place. I didnt expect it to be, but it is. The dinner menu consists of about ten choices, all of which are fairly expensive. We sat in the balcony area and the service was very slow. The downstairs area was extremely loud, as there appeared to be a large party going on (complete with bad Elvis impersonator). It isnt a place to go for a romantic dinner, as the bar is open to the public downstairs. The food was really excellent, as was the crme brulee for dessert. The dcor is very nice and the ceiling is super high.

A genuinely great place. The food is surprsingly great. Recently we have had the rack of lamb, the skate (excellant!!), the mussels (yum, yum!), the venison and the Angus sirloin burger. All great! Good for a big group.
Go early in the week cause it is busy, busy, busy............

The food, the service and ambience were all wonderful!!! The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable and welcome. The only downside was the wine list (average selection and overpriced) but with so many great brews on tap, skip the wine and enjoy a pint!!

Fabulous food, location and music in old city. Why eat tourist food? Nice enough for "special" evening out, yet casual enough for happy hour or Sunday afternoon drinks while listening to the music. Mussels are my fav

I walked in expecting Irish cuisine but this was not the case. They had all the trendy Irish trappings in decor and the beer was that of an Irish bar. The food however was their own unique twist on standard east coast fare. I recomend this resturant to anyone that likes fusion cuisine.

We ate brunch on the sidewalk - never even went inside! It was a beautiful day, the stools were comfy, and the food and wine was very tasty and a fair price. I may try to eat inside now that the weather is a little cooler...

More an upscale Irish restaurant than an Irish pub, this is one of the busiest scenes in Old City. The guys belly up to the Guinness on draft at the bar, and patrons gather in front of the fireplace for conversation---if you can make…
