Kim Bokamper and his partners at PDKN Restaurant Group have added to their presence on Las Olas. This sports bar features the largest LED screen on the boulevard. Located on the first floor of PDKN restaurant The Balcony, it serves American classics with their own spin, such as short rib tacos with savory cabbage, braised short rib, crispy shallots and horseradish aioli.
Traditional pub fair as well as seafood (Guinness barbecued shrimp) served indoors and out, though most people love sitting on the outside terrace filled with nautical paraphernalia. You can watch the traffic on the New River, as well as whatever games are playing on the TVs, and, at night, enjoy the live music. Water accessible.
A popular watering hole for boat crews, this Irish pub offers Irish breakfast (all day), lunch, dinner and late-night fare. Try the fish & chips, corned beef and cabbage, chicken pot pie or Buffalo chicken wings. Then grab a pint.
Fresh-faced 26-year-old executive chef Stanton Bundy helms the kitchen within this pork-centric powerhouse in the former Samba Room space. An open kitchen with a rotisserie pumps out plates of brown sugar-brined jerk chicken wings, pulled duck nachos, and grilled free-range turkey meatballs. Poultry aside, this place is all about pork, so go for the rotisserie ribs or barbecued pulled pork sliders with fried pickles, cheddar, spicy mustard, and cabbage slaw. For those craving “lighter” fare, try the warm spinach salad with balsamic bacon vinaigrette, candied walnuts, and Shropshire blue cheese.
Many people come here for the music: that of the Beatles on Tuesday and of Rod Steward on Wednesday, then the real thing, Celtic Bridge, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. But the kitchen and the friendly servers are the co-stars, delivering Irish stew; Donegal mussels in a Chardonnay, garlic and cream sauce; and a truly outstanding Reuben wrap.
