Elgin Public House revives weary locals with a menu of hearty eats and a bottled suds selection 87 varieties strong. Baked goat cheese ($8.50) melts into warm marinara sauce, inviting feasters to warm up their maws by plunging bites of toasty pita into its savory depths, gearing up incisors for entrees such as the bleu horse burger ($9.95) crafted from certified Angus beef and crowned with blue cheese, horseradish, and onion crisps. Steaks, such as an 8-ounce rib eye ($18) are hand cut in-house after being aged a minimum of two weeks to ensure optimal flavor and prevent them from prank-calling patrons. For fans of porcine pleasures, a pub brat ($7.50) stuffs pretzel-bun halves with a savory Johnsonville beer brat before slathering each side with whole-grain mustard, grilled onions, and sauerkraut; a trio of smoked pork shanks ($18) arrive deliciously cloaked in a black-cherry-chipotle barbecue sauce and a tasteful pair of stilettos.
Between sips of Stella Artois ($4.75) or Smithwicks Irish ale ($4.75), guests can admire the pub’s cozy interior, reinforced by exposed-brick walls and a refreshing absence of abandoned unicycles. A calendar of weekly events keeps things lively with regular offerings such as Wednesday night trivia and daily specials.
