Deciding we were not too hungry on a Saturday night we found a good variety of menu options and reasonable prices at the Neighborhood Pub - so we decided to give it a try. I called in advance around 7 pm to check on the wait time for a table, and was told they had a few spaces left. We rushed over and got the last available table, which unfortunately was next to the door and a table reserved for large parties.
Our waitress immediately came to take our drink order, but forgot to bring us menus. She returned several minutes later with our drinks but still did not have menus. She seemed to have several tables that were turning over at the same time, and was more focused on closing out their checks so people now waiting for a table could sit. Eventually we did get our menus and placed our order.
I ordered the Bleu Cheese Burger without onions. The burger was quite good. The bleu cheese was plentiful, and the bacon was crisp and cooked perfectly. The bun was also very good, although a little large given the size of the burger patty. The burger came with chips and a pickle.
My wife ordered the cod dinner with sweet potato fries. The cod was served in small rectangles that were lightly battered. I tried a piece and thought it was quite good. My wife loves sweet potato fries, and her meal came with a generous portion. At the end, however, it was the cod that had vanished while sweet potato fries remained. That in itself means the cod must have been good!
I could not resist trying a piece of Door County Cherry Cobbler, which the menu said was homemade and served a la mode. The piece of cobbler arrived and was huge! It had a fairly thick crust on the bottom, and was filled with cherries. Taste was average. I like a small amount of almond flavoring with cherry desserts, and did not notice any almond flavoring in this cobbler.
Atmosphere was that of a typical pub. Sitting by the door and a table reserved for large parties meant we were probably in the loudest part of the restaurant. At times my wife and I could not hear each other as we were talking. Towards the end of our meal the large party left and things got much quieter.
If you are looking for good food at a reasonable price (our meal totaled $30 after adding two sodas), the Neighborhood Pub is a good choice. Try to get a table on the side or back of the bar to cut down on the noise.
