Gin Mill Lounge
Hunker down under the fizzling, romantic glow of neon beer signs for an evening of sports, live local music, unpretentious pub grub, and affordable drinks. The bar menu offers a classic array of meaty sandwiches, burgers, salads, nachos, and fresh pizzas with more than 10 possible topping options. Wings ($4 for six, or $7.50 for 12) can be served with five different glazes: regular, flaming, BBQ, teriyaki, and the coquettish Sassy Sauce, the newest member of the sauce ensemble. Seven-year itchers can satisfy cravings for variety with a Mill Basket (jalapeno poppers, cheese sticks, wings, zucchini, mushrooms, with pizza sauce and ranch dressing for dipping, $6.50) or Mexican Basket (five mini tacos, three mini burritos, and two taco sticks, with chips and salsa, $6). Evening eaters whose gut-Grendels cannot be slain by mere apps alone can grab a dinner plate, such as the succulent walleye ($9) or the popular seven-ounce New York strip steak ($9), both accompanied by a traveling band of potato, salad, and roll.
