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.
The Landing on Layton 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.
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.
