From the outside, the Brookside looks like it belongs in Bavaria, with its beautiful carved wood facade. But inside, it's your basic American bar and grill operating in a building that originally housed a creamery--the small brook that, believe it or not, actually runs through the building's basement was believed to have been used to keep the milk cool. The Brookside is a popular gathering spot for motorcyclists, who sometimes blanket the restaurant's backyard with denim and black leather. (The outdoor seats are enhanced by several shade trees, a fire ring, and a small stage set up for bands to play on the weekends.) The grill menu consists of greasy bar foods like cheese curds and tater tots to pair with sandwiches and burgers. The best thing to order is a delicious mess called the Hunter's Extreme, which tops a half-pound beef patty with American cheese, smoky bacon, and caramelized onions.
