Crowley's Downtown Grill & Bar may sound generic, but try pronouncing it with an Irish accent. There you go. Crowley's is indeed Irish through and through, beginning with a beer list steeped in the classics (Murphy's, Guinness, Magners) to the local variety (a little Cigar City Jai Alai anyone?).
But step away from the pint glasses for a few minutes to enjoy the food. Highlights include chips and gravy (ketchup is for wimps!), Irish nachos (with potato slices instead of corn chips) and the ridiculously addictive Reuben egg rolls (with Thousand Island dressing for dipping, of course).
