June 7, 2012 O’Grady’s Pub

Neil’s new apartment is within walking distance of O’Grady’s on Mineral Point Road, so we decided to give it a try.   Neil and Kevin had the burger with bacon and fried egg, I had a Cobb Salad, and our resident vegetarian had the veggie burger.  I ordered the salad with parmesan peppercorn dressing, but they didn’t have any, so I went with Ranch instead.  (Neil wants the staff at O’Grady’s to know that there’s a grocery store with multiple kinds of salad dressing right across the street, just in case you run out .)  The salad had all of the things I love about a Cobb – bite size pieces of chicken (and lots of them), cheddar cheese instead of blue, really crispy bacon bits, and a whole hard boiled egg sliced on top.  When a salad is your whole meal, it should have lots of the good stuff on top of lettuce, and this one absolutely did.  It came with whole grain toasted bread, which was very good.  I tried Kevin’s hash browns (crispy brown outside, buttery smooth inside, just like they should be) and Neil’s fries (not crispy enough for me).  It’ll be a good place for the new apartment dwellers to stop in after work for a drink and an appetizer, and when we’re in the neighborhood visiting, we’ll keep this on our list of places for a weeknight dinner.  Good food, friendly service, and a casual atmosphere make this a place worth going back to.

    I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your
    website. It appears like some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This could be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this
    happen before. Thank you
