It’s a perfectly good place to have a beer, but what this Irish(ish) tavern is really known for is the food. The burger, widely exclaimed as one of the best in town, is indeed a great example of the form. Ditto for the occasional special of Guinness stew and the delicious bread pudding. Sound like unhealthy food? Well, perhaps it is. But this place also uses only grass-fed, ethically raised meat—so it’s not all bad.

According to GQ Magazine, Poag's has one of America's top burgers. I agree! Poag's was serving 100% grassfed beef long before it was trendy. Great burgers, great staff, the best Guinness in town...what's not to like!

The best "bar food" and burger out of all of the other bar options in the area. The bartenders are always friendly and pour a good drink after a long hard day!
