When to Go: Pop in on Friday nights for all-you-can-eat fish and chips throughout the year, or celebrate on special occasions such as the pub’s popular Guinness Oyster Fest or week-long St. Patrick’s celebration.
While You’re Waiting: Enjoy the bouncy tunes of traditional Irish session music from the Dirty Wellies, a four-piece band of a fiddle, string, tinwhistle, and accordion, who also invite others to play with them.
While You’re in the Neighborhood

Off Broadway Pub's owner, Rick Dahms, always knew his hot wings were something special. What he didn't realize, was that everyone else knew it as well. This became evident when his jumbo hot wings won 670 The Score's listener's best wing award in 2010, taking the top slot largely due to the heaping portions he serves and the amount of meat on the bone. His kitchen doesn't skimp on the restaurant's other entrees either, which range from hearty hamburgers and half racks of ribs to build-your-own pizzas.
Two flat screen televisions play the city's game over Off Broadway's lengthy bar, where bartenders pour shots of Jaegermeister, draft beers, and mixed drinks.
