1. Matt Murphy's Pub 14 Harvard St, Brookline Village, MA 02445 (Brookline Village)

Offering the friendly vibe of Cheers without the tourists, Matt Murphy's in Brookline Village is a popular neighborhood pub with craft beer and excellent Irish-whiskey cocktails, plus fish & chips that are the real deal: wrapped in newspaper and anointed with pickled onions and malt vinegar. They're joined on the menu by other Irish pub classics like shepherd's pie and a hearty beef stew, which you'll want to top off with some sticky toffee pudding. Matt Murphy's may have a spiffier look than your standard watering hole (don't expect any TVs either), but it still has the cash-only policy.
