Current Menu

Salad: Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad                                          

A crisp serving of Romaine lettuce, layered with flavorful grilled chicken in a classic Caesar dressing we all know and love. Topped with shaved Parmesan  and grape tomatoes (It’s green, right?)

Soup:  Classic Cheesy Potato Soup with Irish Pretzel knots

A light and cheesy potato soup featuring cheddar cheese, crispy bacon and fresh leeks simmered together with cream and herbs . Served with a freshly baked, soft pretzel knot. Yes, we know pretzels are German. You know you still want one…

Sandwich: Crispy Reuben Egg Roll 

A fun take on the classic Reuben sandwich. We start with a classic egg roll wrapper, and layer it with Swiss cheese, corned beef, more cheese, and sour kraut. Its then rolled like a classic eggroll and serve it with a Russian  dressing, made in house for this awesome sandwich. Served with your choice of chips

Pasta: St. Patrick’s Pasta  

It doesn’t get any more Irish than this. We begin with penne pasta which is combined with corned beef, cabbage, carrots, peas and cheddar cheese in a mustardy cream sauce. This luscious mixture is baked in the oven until golden brown then served with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. Erin Go Bragh!a

Entrée:  Honey Ale Grilled Pork Chop with Roasted Yukon Gold Potato

The two most common foods in Irish cuisine are pork and potatoes, so this one just makes since. Thick cut and tender chop, glazed in a mixture of light ale, honey, and sweet chili served with crispy yellow, golden potatoes. We have sought the treasure…. This is it.

Combo: Soup, Salad or Sandwich Combo

Can’t decide between a soup, salad or sandwich? Let us help with our combo meal! Choose two half items instead. You have a choice of a half Sandwich, a half Salad or a half Soup.
