Pete & Johnny's Tavern & Grille dishes out a relaxed dining experience bolstered by a vast supply of brews and a menu stockpiled with hearty American grill fare. Prelude your potlatch with appetizers such as the steak-cut onion rings, served in a basket or latched around ring fingers for impromptu marriage proposals ($4.69). A 10-inch taco pizza revs esophageal engines with a state-of-the-art three-cheese hybrid of ground beef, picante sauce, tomatoes, and sour cream ($8.99). Follow up taste-bud teasers with a focaccia-bread bruschetta burger ($6.79), the chopped steak with grilled onions, sautéed mushrooms, and bordelaise sauce ($9.99), or a full slab of barbecue baby-back ribs ($20.99). Pete & Johnny's libation supply is never in short order, with premium drafts and bottles abutting a range of wines and liquors to keep food company—or to fuel album-length karaoke opuses on Thursdays and Saturdays.
