Greco’s Pub & Eatery lures revelers with a sports-centric atmosphere and anchors them in place by filling their stomachs with pub grub, which beckons hungry stomachs from a menu of contemporary American fare. Aggressive tummy grumbles dissolve into whispers over platters of homemade haystacks ($5.95), extra-thin onion rings served with chipotle-mayonnaise dip. Finicky fingers can dip regular or boneless wings into a choice of 12 sauces, including extra-hot, sweet-and-spicy, or wasabi (12 wings for $8.95), and the nacho supreme ($9.95) amalgamates shredded chicken or flavorful ground beef with tomatoes, jalapeño peppers, and molten cheese lava. Among the house’s pack of handhelds, the butterflied tenderloin sandwich ($9.95) coddles tender steak, sautéed mushrooms, and onions on a soft hoagie bun and excites incisors with more facility than a meat-stuffed piñata.

Of the 85 intrepid souls who've attempted to conquer the Paddy's Lament burger challenge at Mulligans Irish Pub & Grill, only one has succeeded. It's not a feat that ought to be taken lightly—contestants have 60 minutes to finish a three-pound burger topped with a half-pound of cheese, a pound of corned beef, and veggies, as well as a mountain of beer-battered fries. Victors are rewarded with bragging rights, a $50 gift card, and an approving head nod from the cook.

For diners not hungry enough to take on the challenge, however, there's plenty of other more reasonably sized pub favorites on the menu, such as tangy buffalo-chicken pizza and meaty nachos. There's also a sweeping variety of authentic Irish favorites, including corned beef and cabbage, shepherd's pie, and fish and chips in a Harp beer batter that's been lauded by reporters from Express Milwaukee as "feathery" and "flavorful." On weekly Friday fish fries, the kitchen serves fried haddock, lake perch, and bluegill along with internationally inspired specialties such as barbecued asian shrimp and spicy seafood linguini.

The bar also boasts 16 draft beers and more than 20 varieties of Irish whiskeys. There are 21 HD TVs scattered throughout the bar and seating areas, broadcasting everything from thrilling football games to thrilling laundry detergent commercials.

Within its storied confines, The Ivanhoe presents hearty cuisine drawing from classic Irish and American pub traditions alongside a selection of 26 brews and a focus on lively community. A bountiful drink menu holds the secret access code to an international cabal of crisp brews, indexing aliases such as Spotted Cow ($4), Smithwick's ($4.50), and the notoriously elusive Blue Moon ($4). Sample one of more than 100 whiskeys, absorb a glass of wine, or sip a martini such as the tongue-tickling Snickers ($8). A robust food menu details singular starters such as the wasabi-laced sesame seared tuna ($10) with greens in a honey-soy-ginger sauce, as well as Celtic standbys such as the European-style fish and chips ($10). The Jameson burger ($9) extends a transatlantic bridge of onion rings smothered in Jameson sauce and the relieved tears of stranded sailors.

The Landing Food & Spirits likes to boast that they’re so great that the state built an airport next to them. Regardless of why it actually happened, the restaurant is a haven for casual nights out in the shadow of small planes. Gaggles of friends settle onto red and wooden barstools or surround tables to grab slices of pizza or dive into beer-side nibbles of sour cream and chive fries. Along the walls, pinball machines, a foosball table, and video arcade games fire up healthy competition as the occasional live band croons from a small stage in the corner. Guests match wits during Monday-night trivia, and feast at the Friday-night fish fry—a great way to entertain visiting relatives or pet grizzly bears.

Surrounded by dark hardwood, hanging beer memorabilia, and dart boards, Chumley's Pub looks like the friendly, welcoming, and low-key public houses of yesteryear. The difference, however, is that they've taken the beer game to the next level, boasting a variety of micro-brews on tap. But their drink game might not even touch their food—a menu of comfort fare ranging from their award-winning chili to Black Angus burgers and a Friday fish fry.

La Parihuela's kitchen team guides diners on a tour of the diverse taste terrains of Peru with a mouthwatering menu of national dishes. A squad of nibblers can warm up jaw muscles with selections of appetizers, such as the fish ceviche, where fish stews in lime juice and guilt over not spending enough time with its guppies. Navigate spoons through the piquant waters of the parihuela, in which an assortment of fish, crab, and mollusks leave dinners with enough shells to fashion a stylish maritime necklace. After appetizers, guests turn the pages of the menu to uncover thrilling entree conclusions to their meal, such as the lomo saltado, where french fry and rice conspirators accompany strips of tenderloin steak or chicken, or the paella, where fresh seafood bodysurfs across a crowd of rice and cilantro.
