The Illinois

The Illinois Imperial India Pale Ale Goose Island Beer Co.

Good balance, full bodied, spicy, complex citrus-y bitter (in a very good way) edge

We both enjoyed every sip. And, we’d buy it again.

2014 favorite? It was definitely one of them.

Pork “Wings” With Carolina Sauce & Onion Rings

The Onion Rings

Served piping hot and super crisp, we loved these. Golden brown, crispy flavorful batter on the outside with tender onion on the inside, these are everything you want an onion ring to […]

The Pub Perimeter

Black Velvet (Guiness over Cider, too sweet and heavy for us)

Fluffy (food court style) pretzels, one of the mustards had a mildly decent kick. The other was simply way too sweet for our taste.

Fish & Chips

The Local 7

The Little John Burger

Perfectly cooked egg, bacon and burger, this was another great one. Hot and crispy sweet potato fries too? Sometimes, it’s easy to make us happy.

Pulled Chicken Salad

Smoky chicken tops this salad of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, shredded cheese, and bacon. Nothing fancy, Rusty Nail fits the bill when you’re in need of a quick and easy place to stop for a hearty lunch.

The Glenwood

The Waffle Cristo

Silly good on a plate, this sandwich demands that you smile.


But, next time, we’d probably ask for the jam on the side.
