Irish Pub & Grill on Saginaw Street in Lansing.

Irish Pub & Grill on Saginaw Street in Lansing.

Over the last year, we’ve gotten a lot of recommendations.  The one place that’s been recommended probably more than any is the Irish Pub & Grill.  We kept making plans to go on a Saturday night when they have karaoke, but something always came up and we never made it.  We were out in Delta Township this morning and come lunch time, finally took the recommendations.

The Irish Pub & Grill is on Saginaw Street just after Saginaw Highway splits into two one way roads.  There’s a corner parking lot on Saginaw and Cleo Street which is a little tricky to get into.  The entrance to the pub is on the corner of the building.  There’s a big, heavy wooden door that leads into a large bar and pub space. 

When you get past the door, you end up in the bar area.  There’s a long bar that runs along the wall with TV’s mounted above and behind.  All were tuned to ESPN.  The rest of the space is divided into two dining areas.  The one in the bar area, where we sat, has tables scattered through the space as well as pub style tables built into the support beams.  The other room has more tables as well as the dart boards and pool tables.

We took at seat at one of the support beam pub tables.  We ordered our Pepsi’s while we looked over the menu.  The menu is pretty standard pub food.  I looked for a long time over the sandwich section and couldn’t find a burger.  I flipped the menu over to find a pretty large burger section.  I got a little worried there for a second. 🙂

After finding the burger section, I had a choice to make.  There were a number of sandwich combinations that looked good. I ultimately settled on the Bacon Bleu Burger.  All the burgers are 6 oz ground sirloin patty’s on an onion kaiser roll.  The sandwich came topped with a ton of crispy bacon pieces and a bleu cheese sauce.  I would have preferred bleu cheese crumbles instead of the sauce,but other than that, the sandwich was good.  Did I mention there was a lot of bacon?  The fries I got with the burger were perfect.  They’re fresh cut and deep fried crispy, golden brown.  It didn’t look like there was a lot on the plate, but the plate was deceiving.  There was more than enough.

J ordered the Honey Smoked Turkey Croissant Deluxe.  The sandwich consists of shaved smoked turkey, on a butter croissant with smoked cheddar, lettuce and tomato.  You get the choice of hot or cold.  J chose hot.  She really liked the sandwich.  We buy smoked cheddar from Horrocks all the time and she said the cheese on her sandwich looks like the same stuff we buy.  She would have been happy if the sandwich would have just bee that, but the turkey was also really good.  She got fries too and they were exactly how she likes them done. 

The bill for the two of us was just over $21 which is pretty close to what I like to pay for lunch.  The Irish Pub & Grill is a really good space.  They have good food, the atmosphere is great, and it’s a great neighborhood bar where you will feel comfortable hanging out.  We still need to go on a Saturday night and check out karaoke……

The Irish Pub and you didn’t have the famous Olive Burger? LOL…

Don’t know if you’ve been through Holt lately, but I drove through there today and saw that Andy’s Mexican Deli is now open inside Brower’s Hardware store…
