My command: My mate and I decided to visit the Jacksonville Area Museum and found a quaint Irish-themed pub and grill in the historic downtown Jacksonville plaza for lunch. (The history of the building and more can be learned at the museum.) I ordered the corned beef and cabbage rolls ($8.99). They consisted of corned beef, sauerkraut and Swiss cheese wrapped in an egg roll. My companion ordered a chicken salad ($8.99) with grilled chicken, lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese and croutons.
Love: The lively pub offers a menu with a variety of starters, salads, sandwiches, burgers and pizzas. Some of the offerings are a fun twist on naming Irish food, like Irish beef made with Italian seasonings or Irish nachos. My mate enjoyed looking at the vintage sports memorabilia on the brick walls where he tagged his brother in a photo. There is a discount for cash payment.
Do not like : None, really, other than dimly lit in some parts of the restaurant partly due to brick walls and dark woodwork and floors.
What would I order next time? The Reuben ($10.99)
