 Benjamin Franklin once said, “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”  So if you a) like beer or b) want to be happy, head down to Faegan’s, one of our personal faves.  A top-notch gastro pub, filling up glasses since 1978.  A place where the mouth-watering menu is only topped by the extensive list of microbrews on tap.  You can thank Ben later.When to...

Update: The bar has since been renamed "Sitrus on the Hill."   You know it’s there, but you have never checked it out.

116 Walton St.
PJ's Pub and Grill in Armory Square is a great place to get a beer and watch the game.

PJ's is your typical Irish pub with American food that anyone can enjoy. When to go: Early afternoon gets busy with the lunch break crowd, and since PJ's is far from...

727 S. Crouse Ave
Grimy, crowded, sweaty, and loud … what is it about Chuck’s that keeps students coming back for more? It might be the cheap Friday night pitchers. It could be the opportunity to write your name in Sharpie on every surface in sight. Or, maybe, it’s just that Cheers-esqe feeling of togetherness you get after a night of drinking with your closest pals. And here, almost everybody does know your name...

Whether it's game day or Wednesday afternoon, it seems like there is someone always in Varsity chowing down on a slice of cheese pizza or a famous steak sandwich. Everything from chicken wings to salads, the Hill would not be the same without the famous Varsity restaurant.
