Oak Creek, WI: Jim Dandy’s

Posted: November 29, 2016 in Uncategorized

After years of visiting Mulligan’s Pub, we finally decided to give Jim Dandy’s across the street a try.

From the outside of the bar, it looks a little intimidating, like an old biker bar.

Inside, it is a place in various states of renovation. Some parts of the bar look old and original; others look like they are newer additions. It gives the place a slightly eclectic vibe to begin.

We came here on a Sunday afternoon during a Packers game and the place had a decent crowd but was not packed.

Of course, we tried their bloody mary.

Spice: Not too spicy

Mix: They whip it up themselves using Sacramento as a base.

Chaser: None offered

Fixin’s: Beef stick and pickle (and olives?)

Price: $5

You know by now that we LOVE Sacramento, so these bloodies went down easily (almost TOO easily–we had three!). The taste was great, but the fixin’s left a little to be desired; there was just a pickle and beefstick on two of the drinks we had, and a pair of olives was added to the third. However, for this price, we were pretty happy. Plus, the bartender was friendly.

Verdict? We’d give Jim Dandy’s another shot if we’re in the area, a nice change of pace from the other area pubs.
