This one-time ice cream parlor maintains a lunch-counter vibe, with its kitchen visible from the street through a bay window and a $2.99 pancakes-and-eggs breakfast served to UP students and dockworkers. But this is boozing territory: Beside the grill is a deep well, bluesmen practice their licks under widescreens showing SportsCenter, and out back is a "biergarten" that—befitting the kind of brews quaffed here—looks more like somebody's yard.
What to drink: Coors. Let's be honest—probably five Coors.
Happy hour: $1.50 PBR tallboys, $2 Coors and Bud, $3 well drinks, $3.25 microbrews, 2-for-1 appetizers 3-6 pm nightly; $1.50 Pabst, $3.99 Bloody Marys 10 am-noon "Lunch hour" daily; free basket of Tater Tots and onion rings with purchase of a pitcher after 11 pm.
