This warm, casual Edgewater hangout (formerly known as Sizzle on Broadway) is a great place to cozy up to a fireplace with a brewski and a plate of cheese fries during the winter months, but the beer garden also packs ’em in during the dog days. And despite the hard-rock hits of the ’80s soundtrack, the eclectic clientele—whose attire during our last visit ranged from chunky glasses and pompadours to jerseys and Afros—is refreshingly chill.
