Timmy Nolan's Tavern
At Timmy Nolan's Tavern & Grill, chefs whip up a menu of Irish-inspired fare amid exposed brick walls, a wooden bar, 11 flat-screen TVs, and private booths. Beer flights allow sippers to sample four draught barley pops from a roster of 22, including Guinness Stout, Lost Coast Downtown Brown, and Harp Lager. Each selection comes in a 5-ounce glass, great for whetting the taste buds and convincing friends that they've become giants. While patrons are sipping, the cultural dichotomy of irish nachos fills stomachs with quartered and deep-fried potatoes that wear a sombrero of cheese, irish stew, peppers, onions, and bacon. Spicy buffalo wings grace tongues with homemade blue-cheese dressing, and traditional beans on buttered toast pair with steak fries, malt vinegar, and a mouthful of James Joyce quotes.
