Located in the former Mulligan's Public House space, Commonwealth Tavern is helmed by executive chef Kevin Church (Owen & Engine) and sous chef Graeme Glass (Longman & Eagle). Their focus is bar food with locally sourced ingredients, like the buttery soft pretzel with Wisconsin cheddar and Virtue cider mustard and the Slagel Farm pork chop with roasted Brussels sprouts and three cheese mac. 20 beer taps dispense mostly local brews.

I live on the opposite side of the city form this place but I always make a point to make a trip here. A great open space that has a great mix of Irish influence with a classic Irish bar. Great beer and food selection and a tv for every game to match. Also a great spot for parties as they can reserve the back half of the place. I should know as my family has been doing our annual St Paddys day celebration here and we normally have about 100 people there. They always give us great deals and the staff is more than helpful with the crowd.
