We met a friend here for dinner on Labor Day and didn't know what to expect on our first visit. It's a large brick building with windows obstructed by shutters or paint (in the entry doors). After you enter you can choose to go into the lounge (think large sports bar) or the restaurant (think large sports bar without a physical bar). The two rooms are dark and separated by a half wall/half window and both are chock full of big screen TVs. I don't understand differentiating the lounge and the restaurant if there's no real difference in lighting and atmosphere. A room in back hosts several pool tables and dart boards. The decor is random - animals on the walls, kids toys hanging from the ceiling, and what is probably supposed to mimic antique beer steins over the windows but really looks like disjointed lost and found dishes. The drink menu boasts a variety of beer and wine, but not what you might expect from an ale house...maybe a dozen. They do, however, have a good variety of beer styles. The menu is American: burgers, pizza, steaks, and sandwiches. I had the pastrami dip. It came with two types of mustard (watery, gross) Au jus (ok) and a choice of sweet potato fries, fries, or onion rings. I had the sweet potato fries. I really think the Bungalow took the 'salty food makes people drink more beer' concept to the extreme. The pastrami on the sandwich and fries were almost inedibly salty. The fries were flat, wide, and soggy. The onions on the pastrami were WAY over cooked. I didn't finish the sandwich or the fries. Our server was quiet and polite. Service wasn't super fast but it was OK. We probably won't be back.
