We recently dined at O’Donoghue’s Irish Pub in Elm Grove, Wisconsin.

It was a Thursday afternoon, the start of the Masters Tournament and we were off the clock, so we had a Bloody Mary with our late lunch. And we were glad we did.

Spice: The waitress asked if we wanted it made spicy and we said YES!

Mix: Unsure

Fixin’s: Pickle, cheese, olive, lime

Chaser: None offered

Price:  $?

We had never been to this Irish Pub before, which seems odd given its proximity to us and the fact that it has been there for a long time. The parking lot is a little odd and the inside is a lot smaller than you’d think, but the food was decent and the drinks were good.

We’d come back for afternoon day drinking if the opportunity presented itself again, but feel like it might be a little crowded on the weekends.

We visited Engine Company No. 3 for brunch on St. Patrick’s Day.

We had been here for lunch several times in the past, but it was always during the workweek, so never a chance to imbibe.

Of course we had to have a Bloody Mary when we got the chance!Photo Mar 17, 10 15 14 AM

Spice: Not really that spicy, but quite delicious.

Mix: Vegetable-infused modest vodka & Turtle Creek Gardens tomato blend (you could also choose a hot pepper infused vodka)

Fixin’s: Pickled heirloom vegetables

Chaser: Yes; a Miller High Life shorty.

Price:  $9 (add bacon for $1)

This was a delicious drink and hit the spot on a Sunday morning; a great start to St. Patrick’s Day.

The food here is also amazing. It’s very farm to table and the ingredients are all locally sourced. You really can’t go wrong!

A great place for brunch or lunch, you’ll want to give this spot a try.
