Pat's Tap

Pat's Tap, the new gastropub from restaurateur Kim Bartmann (Barbette, Red Stag, etc.), offers plenty for diners as well as drinkers. You'll find a killer roast chicken and other entrees, but your best bets are usually from the snack and burger side of the menu. Duck burgers, goat cheese fritters, and other goodies pair perfectly with an exceptional list of microbrews. Bring a roll of quarters for skee ball or a game of pool and don’t miss the late-night happy hour where appetizers like pork belly skewers, fried pickles, zucchini cakes, and the fabulous cheese curds are just $5.
