Neighborhoods value their pubs as a place to socialize, just as they value the ends of their rainbows as a place to find extra parking-meter change. Enjoy camaraderie at close proximity with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of home-cooked pub fare at Pat Dees Pub & Eatery in Northfield.
The cooks at Pat Dee’s Pub & Eatery have stuck around for more than a decade, crafting home-cooked dinners, sandwiches, and a Friday fish fry in the amicable neighborhood bar. Diners dig into dinner plates crowded with pierogi—potato-stuffed morsels accompanied by grilled onions, sour cream, and applesauce—and signature prime-rib dinners renowned for their tenderness, juiciness, and ability to bench press a baked potato ($14.95 for a 10-oz.; $16.95 for a 14-oz). Corned-beef sandwiches come loaded with three-quarters of a pound of Vienna corned beef stacked atop deli-style rye ($7.95), and the juicy sliced steak of french-dip sandwiches plunges from a hoagie diving board into an au jus dunk tank ($6.95). Chefs lob handfuls of hot, salty fries at all sandwiches and wraps before sending them forth or busy their hands with crafting 12-inch specialty pizzas such as the Seafood Delight topped with shrimp, crab flakes, and cheese atop a white-sauce sea ($15.95).
