Lot’s of time over the years has been spent in Irish Bars locally and in traveling. They all have great beers, great whiskey and you’ll usually find bands on the weekend with lot’s of singing from the crowd. Soccer and rugby matches you’ll find a lot of the time on big screens and lot of great food will be consumed. Well not at every place. 🙂
Thinking of myself as a foodie, all the points above are secondary except for the last. Great food conquers all! And no Irish Bar that I’ve been to makes it quite like Logan’s Irish Pub in Findlay, Ohio.
Opening in 2010 it sits right in the heart of downtown on Main St. A sampling of the great eats I’ve had here:
Corned beef and cabbage, along with red skinned potatoes and carrots.
Logan’s Mac ‘n Cheese. Corkscrew pasta made with peas, corned beef, onions, scallions and more. It’s topped off with bread crumbs. You can never have too much corned beef!
The regular Mac ‘n Cheese. There was plenty of cheeses mixed in, to go with again corkscrew pasta and topped with bread crumbs. Alongside for the ride some sautéed garlic green beans, outstanding!
You can’t be at an Irish establishment, especially earlier in the day without an Irish coffee.
My most recent stop there topped them all. I heard the bartender talking to someone at the other end of the bar about everything that was in the Full Irish Breakfast. I was intrigued, actually I was sold before the bartender really had a chance to ask.
Eggs, bacon, sausage, black and white pudding, mushrooms, tomatoes topped with parmesan and more. It was definitely a full breakfast.
To go with all the outstanding food and Irish coffees is great service. The food has always come out fast and everyone is always checking to see if you need anything else.
If your ever in Northwest Ohio or the Midwest for that matter make the trek over to Findlay and checkout Logan’s Irish Pub. I need to be saving room for my next conquest there: The Country Fried Breakfast. 🙂
