Except for big holidays, walk-ins are always welcome, but for parties of 6 or more we'd appreciate you reserving your table in advance. This will help us anticipate and serve your group better. Of course, if you are a party of 1-4, you can also lock in your table here. Thanks!
In 2010, Charles and Treena Fiesel purchased a farm in Madison, with a dream of living off the land. In pursuit of this dream, the Fiesels opened PLOW in October 2015, launching a mission of providing farm-to-table food in the heart of downtown Cambridge.
Our goal is to be directly connected to as much of the food served here as possible. Much of the food you will eat comes directly from the family farm; from the seasonally fresh-picked vegetables, to the pork and lamb to beef butchered since 2017. The pork from our farm is a special heritage cross mix, and the lamb is a Katahdin, raised to create the best flavor. We sincerely hope you enjoy the warm atmosphere, friendly service and the delicious food we strive to consistently provide. Thanks for choosing PLOW and dining with us.
The building in which PLOW resides was originally built as a gristmill in 1847, and played a vital part in spurring early Cambridge's economic development, drawing farmers to the area and allowing for expansion.
In 1901, a fire struck Main Street and the building was destroyed, but was re-built right away. The grist mill closed in 1930, and had been empty for five years when it was purchased and remodeled into a feed mill.
In 1992, the building was renovated once again, and was transformed into a restaurant. Since then, the building has been home to a wide variety of different restaurants, with Plow being the ninth version.
