Brogue's Irish Pub

After our bike ride through John Prince Park this past weekend, we ended up having lunch at Brogue's Irish Pub in downtown Lake Worth, FL.
Brogue's Irish Pub, Lake Avenue

Brogue's is dog-friendly all day, every day if you sit outside on the patio - which is exactly where we sat to enjoy our lunch.  The patio offers great people (and dog) watching as people stroll the avenue's shops and restaurants.

Investigating under table for dropped food

We started with the Oak Smoked Irish Salmon which was served on whole wheat flatbread with a cream cheese spread and a garnish of peppers, capers and lemon.  It was light, very tasty and fresh.  Everyone really enjoyed it - including me!

After the appetizer, Ma, Daddy-Dog and Uncle Robbie enjoyed another round of 'adult beverages' (Guinness, Smithwicks, Harps) while I lapped some cool water.  Then came our lunch entrees:

The 'Dublin Dip'

Hot roast beef with provolone cheese and sauteed onions served with delicious au jus and a side of steak fries.

The Shrimp Po'Boy (a special for that day) 

Not typical Irish Pub fare...
Uncle Robbie said it wasn't a true Po'Boy but it was good.  It was served with a side of steak fries too.

The Fish and Chips

I can always get Ma to order me some fish and chips!  The fish was light and flaky inside and crispy on the outside (Harps beer batter).

Everyone agreed the steak fries (chips) weren't really that good - I didn't even like them much.  The restaurant also serves other Irish favorites like Bangers and Mash, Shepherd's Pie, and Corned Beef.  In the evenings, they have live entertainment (music) inside.

If you are looking for a nice spot that is dog-friendly, has good people watching and good food, then you may want to check out Brogue's Irish Pub at 621 Lake Avenue in Lake Worth, FL.
