Pappy McGregor’s Pub & Grill Restaurant Review

: Despite the name, this isn’t just another out-of-the-box Irish pub. In fact, there’s very little Celtic fare on the menu, but what is on the menu is better than you’d expect from such a spot. All the usual bar food is available, but so are Wagyu beef burgers, a pork belly BLTA sandwich, and lobster mac ‘n’ cheese. It’s hard to pass up the garlic fries to save room for dessert, but if you do, go for the brownie sundae. In addition to a respectable wine list and nice lineup of drafts --- Harp, Smithwick’s and local microbrews --- there’s a full bar as well.
