Beer, like soap, comes in a bar and livens up any shower. Wash your mouth out with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a beer-enhanced meal for two at Captain Jack’s on Prior Lake (up to a $39.98 total value). The meal includes the following:
- Two sandwiches or burgers (up to a $13.99 value each).
- Two draft beers (up to a $6 value each).
Captain Jack’s sits along the shore of Prior Lake, allowing diners to soak in natural scenery during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. To complement sudsy cups with labels such as Coors, Miller, and Sam Adams, the food menu boasts nine sandwiches served with a pickle and fries, which represent the boat and oars with which Vikings travel to Minneapolis. The french-dip sandwich pairs sliced beef with a hoagie bun and au jus, and the hawaiian-chicken sandwich slathers plump chicken breast with teriyaki sauce, pineapple, and provolone cheese. Each half-pound, charbroiled burger arrives atop a toasted bakery bun, which absorbs juices and provides a place for patrons to practice painting with ketchup before doing so on a birth certificate. The South of the Border cheeseburger integrates pepper jack cheese, bacon, pico de gallo, and jalapeño, and the Prior Lake burger mixes swiss cheese with two types of bacon.
From the shores of Prior Lake, Captain Jack's restaurant upholds the area's resort feel by churning out a menu of modern bar and grill eats seven days a week. More than 20 appetizers, such as blue cheese sticks and pork pot stickers, are on hand to prep the stomach for the arrival of hearty entrees including half-pound charbroiled burgers, thin crust pizzas, and protein-packed sandwiches accompanied by fries, a pickle, and an extra button for your pants. And weekends are dedicated to brunch specials, which range from three-egg omelets to buttermilk pancakes, which are complemented by a Bloody Mary bar.
Though Captain Jack's is dedicated to serving high quality food, the restaurant boasts a casual atmosphere abundant with wooden accents, flat screen TVs, and neon beer signs. The laid-back eatery also invites vacationers and locals to partake in weekly events, which range from Wii Wednesdays to snow softball tournaments.
