Dinner

The Park Side Pub in McFarland's best feature is the historic building. It's a typical bar situated in the Edwards building, which has been lovingly cared for, on the lake side of Hwy 51. We ate on the nice outdoor patio and, save an obnoxious motorcycle driveby, we had a perfectly standard meal. Between the burger and chicken sandwich, there was a noticeable lack of any sort of moisture in our meats. The chix also suffered from a lack of toppings that might have imbued moisture.  The burger was on an OK bun that was nicely toasted. The meat was served with meh cheese and meh-er veggies, and neither provided much excitement.

The lemonade was off the gun; the chips were standard. Nice pickle cups, though. Can you tell there wasn't much to talk about here? We don't recommend that people rush here for food, per se, it seems to be just a standard Wisconsin bar serving Sysco-inflected bar fare.
