The Irish Pub
About 200 feet from the storied Milwaukee River, The Irish Pub's founding family emulates the Emerald Isle with an oak-topped bar and Irish paraphernalia. Brews served in 20-oz English pints such as Stella Artois and Guinness join cocktail fixings and wines behind the wood-inlay bar, where a chalkboard menu announces nightly specials and which waiters get detention. During the winter season, customers may also enjoy spiked hot caramel apple cider. The pub's kitchen whips up wings, half-pound burgers, salads, soups, plates of fish 'n' chips, and other quintessential comfort food, as well as corned beef sandwiches and curried-chicken-salad wraps. Flat-screen TVs dot the dining room's exposed brick walls, where they broadcast sports games and other major events.
You have to try the Pub Chips. They are simply seasoned slices of potatoes with an addictive garlic mayo dipping sauce.Ericka A., Yelp!, 10/15/11
It's a great pub. Wait staff is always friendly and the beers are always cold.Billy K., Yelp, 3/16/11
