them in bbq, hot, or "fire and brimstone". we didn't want
them to be lonely, so we serve them with a side of celery
and bleu cheese.

and call 'em taters! any way you say them, they're good eatin'!
we cut these fellows in half and layer them with mashed potatoes, mixed cheese and bacon and offer you a side of sour cream to top them off. however, if you really want to know why we call them taters, you have to top them off with our taco beef, mesquite
grilled chicken or steak. your mouth will be so busy, you'll
only have time to say tater

our 10-inch tortilla, roughly the length from your elbow to wrist for average people (not you, sasquatch), is filled with mixed cheeses, peppers and onions. if you want, you can fill them with any number of the items below. by the way, this now makes it a meal and not really an appetizer, unless you feel the need to share with those people across the room who keep staring at you.
Add Chicken, Steak, Or Portabella$2.95
Beer Battered Mushrooms
these drunken "fun guys" stumbled into one of our baskets. so, we decided to batter them up and drop them into our drunk tank (a.k.a. fryer). we serve them up with a side of horseradish sauce for dipping. the only thing that would make them better is to wash them down with a woodruff ipa or white mule ale.
okay, here's the deal. instead of us creating a sampler platter that you're probably going to need to adjust for your picky date, we're going to let you create your own

our skilled grill master delicately grills this on our mesquite grill... the chicken that is. we use our sweet stout barbecue sauce as our base and top it with our grilled barbecue chicken, red onions and mozzarella cheese. it's a delicious item that's doing its part to bring the bib back into style. brewer's note: appreciate all the flavors by getting your taste buds started with our state street stout.

we lure 14 of our jumbo shrimp into our saute pan - their bodies are big, not their heads; therefore, they're not too smart. we saute them and serve them in our homemade scampi butter. we serve these delightful, mouthwatering morsels with two of our sides. can you feel yourself beginning to drool?

Mesquite-grilled Delmonico Ribeye
a tasty 12 oz. ribeye, seasoned and grilled to a perfect state. trust us, the grill marks are so defined you can play tic-tac-toe on them. however, remember what your parents said about playing with your food - you'll go blind or something.
think seasoned choice sirloin. think open flame mesquite grill. think mushrooms and onions. think feta cheese. think two sides. okay, quit thinking and grab that server of yours before you start nibbling on your arm
Mesquite Grilled Sirloin Without The Toppings$13.95
who says only bad things can come from playing with pointy sticks in a brewery while working around open flames? we take our sirloin and marinate it in our special recipe and skewer (go ahead, you can say it out loud - we like the way it sounds, too) them with some red peppers, onions, and green peppers and cook them over our open flame mesquite grill.

we spice two of our 8oz. chops up with a bit of our specialized seasoning mix. don't bother asking for the recipe; we keep it under lock and key, in the basement, with 3 guards, two german shepherds, and a laser-guided egyptian cobra (don't ask). the results are a tender and moist chop cooked to a savory finish waiting for you to enjoy. served with two sides

it's sushi grade tuna, although we ran out of chopsticks so it's not rolled sushi style. not to mention, it's a 10 oz. cut and very few people could cram it in their mouth in one bite. anyway, we offer it in several different styles: blackened, cajun, caribbean, or lemon-pepper. you can have two sides placed on the plate for your timely consumption.
Grilled Angus Burger
we offer you over a pound of food on this all american classic. it's a half-pound of ground beef cooked to your liking and served on a corn meal bun topped with lettuce, tomatoes, and red onions (mustard and mayo upon request). we then dress it with another half-pound of golden brown potato sticks (french fries friend, french fries). for a nominal fee you can top this classic patty with either: 1 of our 8 different cheese choices, bacon, mushrooms, or any combination thereof
this is the mother of all mother misery makers with its messiness. so, if you're ordering this it's time to monitor your messiness by asking for more napkins. but believe us, it's worth eating with a knife and fork if you're that kind of wuss. we start with our half-pound of ground angus beef and cover it with our button mushrooms & onions, swiss cheese and enough bacon for this to be classified as a "pig in a blanket" type sandwich. once again, this is served up with half-pound of french fries

Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich
here's the deal. we're lazy. read the santa fe burger and substitute chicken for burger. thanks.
Chicken Cordon Bleu
we thought that this would make us sound a bit more sophisticated. we know, we know, it'll probably take more than three little words - but we tried. nonetheless, we grill our chicken breast to perfection (have you noticed a theme with this perfect thing? us too!), then we top it with some sliced ham, swiss cheese, and slices of bacon. we place it on a comfortable, corn meal bun and serve it with our large portion of fries and a side of ranch dressing
Garden Fresh Portabella Sandwich
we grill a large marinated portabella mushroom to perfection (with grill marks to prove it). we place it on our corn meal bun and add tomatoes, lettuce, onions, and jack cheese. we recommend eating it with the steamed vegetables or rice; but hey, we're not your mothers! eat what you want - unless your mom is with you, and in that case, check with her!

we couldn't call ourselves a pub unless we carried this traditional meal of beer-battered fish served with our homemade cajun tartar sauce and golden brown chips (fries, if you will).
in the tradition of the great threesomes throughout history: the three stooges, the 3 musketeers, charlie's angels, the brady boys, and the brady girls (although, that's really six, we suppose), we offer the taco trio. three spicy beef tacos filled with lettuce, tomatoes, and mixed cheese. we recommend it with rice and beans. however, the sides are a duo you can choose.
Santa Fe Chicken Dinner
similar to our santa fe chicken sandwich except there's an additional side, no bun, and the chicken breast is larger
caught off the coast of montana - near a snipe farm, these lil' buggers put up a heck of fight. nonetheless, we begin grilling the chicken breast then cover it in our sweet stout bbq sauce. after grilling it to a moist state we cover it with mixed cheese, tomatoes, and bacon and even place it on a plate (see, we care).

Dave's Parmesan Pasta
a combination of our homemade marinara sauce, diced fried chicken strips, and mushrooms. we toss this with the skill of a master sword juggler, actually more of the skill of a master pasta flipper but no time to be picky. we cover this with mozzarella cheese italian seasoning and coincidentally enough cook it to perfection
Mark's Italian Pasta
imagine if you will a pizza - try not to cramp up. now, imagine marinara sauce tossed around penne noodles, italian sausage, mushrooms, peppers and black olives then we top it with sliced pepperoni. we sprinkle this with italian seasoning and yet again, with deft skill, we cook it to perfection.
Al's Fredo Pasta
our own special alfredo sauce tossed with fettuccini noodles. it's a light and creamy dish unto itself. however, you can make it more filling with chicken, portabella or shrimp for just a few dollars more each.
Add Chicken Or Portabella$2.95
Caper Chicken Pasta
there's nothing worse than chickens that have gone awry (get it, caper?). well, maybe, but we really don't want to think about those types of things. we top our mesquite grilled chicken with sauteed mushrooms and onions, chopped parsley, and of course our capers. we offer this either on a bed of fettuccine noodles or with two sides. see, we're not as bad as the chickens.
Cajun Chicken Pasta
variety is the spice of life...or in this case, cajun spice is the spice of life. we take our mesquite grilled chicken and cover it in cajun spices and then dice it up. we toss this in our cajun alfredo sauce along with diced peppers and fettuccine noodles
Godiva Chocolate Kahlua Mousse
a delicate and light dessert flavored with the rich taste of chocolate (come on, you can hear it calling your name) and accented with a hint of kahlua and godiva chocolate liqueur. we top it off with a bit of whipped cream (always a fun thing) and an artistic splash of chocolate. not too filling, yet really rounds the meal out. in other words, splurge! how often do you dine out?!
we use our mixed cheese and cook it...just kidding. we serve this rich tasting dessert with your choice of topping: strawberry, raspberry, chocolate, or caramel. the only thing that can possibly make this better is a cup o' joe and of course, you eating it!
we wrap our homemade dough around your choice of filling (banana and pecans or cinnamon apples) and fry to a rich, golden brown. we sprinkle it with cinnamon, powdered sugar, drizzle it with honey and serve it next to a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. it's an experience all must try. seriously, it's been written. well, we wrote it, but it's still been written.
a delicate flour dessert which, once fried to a golden state of perfection, is forced to expand to hold in its rich flavor. once inflated we pull it from the fryer and drizzle it with honey, cinnamon and powdered sugar and place it on a plate for your approval!
the classic dessert returns! banana, ice cream, chocolate and strawberry toppings, whipped cream and nuts topped with a cherry.
we sell it every day. hot brownie, cold ice cream, chocolate syrup with whipped cream dollop on top.
