A good sandwich, like a good raft, cultivates a sense of community when shared among friends, and is significantly less desirable when broken into its individual parts. Meander down your own edible Mississippi with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare at Mississippi Pub in Inver Grove Heights.
From atop the two-tiered riverside deck, hungry diners can flip through Mississippi Pub’s menu, proliferated with burgers, sandwiches, and weekend-breakfast options. Wrap digits around the bun grips of one of 12 burgers, ranging from the classic Pub burger decked with bacon and barbecue sauce ($7.95) to the sweet and savory Hawaiian burger ($7.95), which layers a slice of grilled pineapple atop a teriyaki-marinated patty cooked over flames fanned for hours by the rhythmic swishing of grass skirts. Other holdable comestibles leap from the sandwich list, sword fighting taste-bud ennui with delicacies such as the fried ham and cheese Monte Cristo ($8.45) or the texas-toast-topped BLT ($6.95). Weekends bear witness to protein-packed breakfasts from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., during which omelets, skillets, and hollandaise-drenched english muffins hold court on tabletops.
Amid scenic views of the Mississippi River, the two-tiered patio and all-glass-enclosed dining room treat diners to breathtaking vistas of North America's largest river system and its mermaid inhabitants basking on the shore. Not just about the scenery, at Mississippi Pub, the cooks maintain a strong passion for the food they dish out. A full bar, boasting bottled and draft beers and cocktails, complements hearty American fare, including burgers, sandwiches, salads, seafood options, mac & cheese, house-made pizzas and weekend breakfast options.
