Going to an Irish put always means good fun. At Wilde Rover, they not only offer great dinks and lots of them, but they also have excellent music by popular local bands, and the food that is far from your traditional pub grub. They take their food seriously here. You will be treated to delights such as Smithwicked Clams and Grilled Wild sockeye salmon soaked in apple-curry puree sauce. Wilde Rover is spacious and cozy, and it’s a great place to come with a bunch of friends, but on Saturday and Sunday when they serve their legendary brunches, you should bring the whole family. There is a lot of choose from, but when in an Irish pub, go for the traditional Irish fare with two eggs, black and white pudding, Irish sausage, house-cured bacon rashers, baked beans, grilled tomato, home-fried potatoes, and Irish soda bread.
