Alger Bar and Grill (Alger, Washington)

Alger Bar and Grill, 1758 Old Highway 99, Alger, Washington. It is just east of Interstate 5 at exit 240. It is just north about 10 minutes from Burlington and south of Bellingham by about 20 minutes. You will come to a four way stop and there it is on the corner. Right across the street is a motel and RV camping, how convenient!! This was recommend to my by Pubpals! So I met him at the Alger. The sit up bar has about 10 stools. It is kind of your typical small town US bar. Most of the seating is in booths that seat 4. They do have some tables and chairs. There are 2 pool tables and a couple of dart boards. The washrooms .....hhmmmm....could use a good scrub down. Having said all that the serivce was really good and very friendly. The food specialty is Fried Chicken, and I had to have it. It came with a breast/ rib, thigh, drum stick, full wing (all large pieces), coleslaw and choice of fries of Jojo potatoes. I had the Jojo's. The fried chicken was great!! Wifey had the brocolli and cheese soup (big bowl I may add) and she said it was very good. The prices were very reasonable. My meal was $9.95 and I couldn't finish it all!! If your are looking for good food and a drink, this place is worth a try. Keep in mind it ain't one of those fancy big city places!! If you are looking for fancy, this might not be fore you!!

O'hares Pub and Bistro (Steveston, British Columbia)

Ohare's Pub and Bistro, 5031 Steveston Hwy., Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. This great pub is just off (about 5 minutes west) Hwy 99 as you go north through the Massey Tunnel towards Vancouver. It is an Irish themed pub with excellent food. They have several great pub pies, ploughman's lunches and the burgers can't be beat. They have numerous types of beer on tap!! The atmosphere in here is always good, everyone is having a good time. The pub has two areas. When you enter the pub you are in the main area and to the right is a second area (my favorite). The second area has a nice bay window seating area that can hold about 8 people. This area its self holds about 25-30 people. They have dart boards and a long bar that runs along the north side of the pub. Very often you will see the owner Jack around the pub. There is lots of parking but it fills up fast, so get there early. If you are there for lunch by 1130 you will have good seats and parking. The evenings, don't wait too late either. They have an outside patio that wraps around the north west corner and faces the front parking lot. In the summer it is always busy. In the winter you still see people huddled around the gas heaters. I have been here many times and I will come again many times. I have never been disappointed when at O'hare's Pub!! Not only do I recommend going here, but many friends also support my views on this great pub.
