Paddy Long's

Some bars have character accrued over decades. This “beer and bacon pub” has Lindeman’s Framboise, Three Floyds Alpha King and Delirium Tremens on tap (plus a seasonal or two always in rotation); a better-than-average jukebox; and a full menu of burgers and fish-and-chips. Where does the bacon come in? A few items, namely a giant, five-pound, bacon-wrapped meatloaf called “the Bomb” that comes with a challenge to finish it in 45 minutes. Their idea of a reward? A T-shirt. Ours? A stomach pump.

This is a casual, relaxed pub that doesn't look like much from the outside but when you think of Irish pubs - this should be the bar you think of. It is run by native Irish owners. So the beers are good and the company is even better.

This is a great place to go for a drink after work and end up with a new friend by the time you leave. They have good daily specials including $5 paninis and $5 burger and fries. I like the drinks and the atmosphere which is rather dark with a low, tin square ceiling and high-top tables. As for food, I've only had a burger before and I didn't think there was anything special about it other than the price. Definitely recommend checking out the bacon and beer tasting - very cool!
