www.jimmyflynns.com Located in a small strip mall just of Hwy 99, this is a nice Irish themed bar. It has a 24 seat rectangular sit up bar all in dark wood, as is all of the bar. There are 8 smaller flat screen TV's through out with most of them behind the bar. There is one large drop down projection screen. There is a smaller, nice room off to the side that looks like you can book it for events and has a sliding door to shut it off from the rest of the bar. Outside is a nice looking patio area with flagstone and glass panels. Awe crap, I forgot to see what they had on tap for beer. For lunch my friend and I each had the salmon burger which had a filet of salmon on a chibata bun with lettuce, tomato and an aioli sauce. We both liked it a lot!! I had a tossed salad and if you have a nut allergy not the salad to get as it had lots of walnuts and the such. My friend had the Caesar which was very good. You could also get soup or fries as your side. Their house wine was Domaine De Chaberton, which is a very good local winery (worth a trip to do some wine tasting). There were loos of NFL jerseys around the edge of the bar hanging down from the ceiling. A beer and wine store attached as well. All in all I really enjoyed it here and would come back for sure!!

www.foxandhound.com. Situated on Portage Avenue right by Route 90 just west of the Polo Park Mall. It is in the St. James Hotel or the "Jimmie" as the locals call it. This wonderful place was built in 1928 and I can only imagine the stories these wall could tell. The hotel check-in is on the main floor and the Hotel is upstairs. But, back to the bar. It is long and kinda narrow with three entrances. The main front entrance isn't used any more and is only an exit. In the front part of the bar is a beautiful rectangular shaped bar that seats 22 people. Great for sitting and visiting over a pint of beer or glass of wine. Lots of wood and brick adorn the walls and interior, making for a very comfortable setting. Much improved from what it was 30 years ago. As you enter from the north side, to the right there is a room with Video Lottery Terminals....gambling machines. There are a 5 TV's around the bar, but I think that it could use a few more! For lunch I had the Tavern Rueben which was marble rye bread with corned beef, Monterey cheese, thousand islands dressing and sauerkraut with home cut fries. It was really good and very filling. My close associate had the Pulled Pork sandwich and fries, which she said was very good. She could only eat half and took the other half home. There is one pool table, one foosball table and two dart board. This place has a great feel to it and I love the bar.. A must try if you are ever in the area, I know you won't be disappointed. A classic old style bar and well worth trying out!
