“Barbecue meets beer garden” may sum up Sheffield’s, but it hardly does the bar—heralded by [Esquire] (http://www.esquire.com/bestbars/bb-sheffields) as one of the best in America—any justice. Standing at the corner of Sheffield and School and housed in the bottom floor of a three-story brownstone, Sheffield’s pulls all the stops when it comes to its two specialties. Barbecue sauce made from scratch smothers tender beef brisket, homemade sausage, and pork that chefs smoke for 14 hours and pull to order. Hand-cut fries and fresh baked cornbread complement the sandwiches and platters, as does any one of the bar’s microbrews, such as Allgash Blonde or Sawtooth English Ale. In the summer, bar-goers can enjoy their brew and food out back in the beer garden, which the Goodlife Report named as one of “America’s Best Beer Gardens”. As cold winds roll into town, patrons can escape to the cozy indoors, surrounded by brick walls and plenty of sports-casting TVs.
Anchored in the charming quarters of the 172-year-old Queen's Inn, these convivial eateries rouse patrons with a potpourri of upscale pub fare and a favourable lineup of draft beers. Bibbed partakers can abandon cutlery and white tuxedo jumpsuits in order to dig into Coppers Pub's Fat City burger, a handcrafted vessel of never-frozen meat draped in Canadian back bacon and a blanket of warm cheddar cheese ($10.99). Neighbouring patty aficionados at The Sports Tap and Grill can also summon the embrace of a toasted kaiser bun with a variety of Fat City protein fillers, including lean ground beef, tender ground turkey, all-natural chicken breast, and range-fed Wolfe Island bison. In addition to donning a classic triple crown of lettuce, tomato, and onion, the signature burger also musters the company of a complimentary french-fry brigade. Like the patient inventors of the bendy straw, a team of poised brew wizards eagerly awaits the verdicts of thirsty patrons and primes palates for smooth consumption at both watering holes with 20 ounces of Molson M, Creemore, and Murphy's stout ($5.52+, not included in this Groupon).
Bije’s makes pizza lovers feel at home with delicious recipes and friendly service in a laid-back neighborhood bar. Built around a pizza recipe smuggled from the marinara-soaked hills of Lucca, Italy, the menu features a mouthwatering selection of feastitudes for every appetite. Start with a Wambo Combo platter, where fried zucchini, mushrooms, cauliflower, and mozzarella sticks form a crunchy golden dream team of finger foods ($7.95), before trying a crispy, thin-crust pizza. Forged from hand-tossed dough and topped with handfuls of cheese, vegetables, and meats, each disk delights diners with a personalized collection of toppings ($11.95 for a large, up to $2 per topping). Specialty pies offer a preselected lineup of ingredients such as the fiery buffalo-wing pizza ($12.25 for a large) or Bije's International ($16.75 for a large), a savory summit of prosciutto, mushrooms, and carmelized onions with a romano-cream sauce. Sandwich lovers rejoice at Bije’s choices of bun stuffers lined with italian beef ($5.85) and italian sausage ($5.75), while carb cravers try the house-made ravioli stuffed with meat, cheese, or spinach ($6.95).
