Teddy's Bar & Grill
This is probably my favorite neighborhood "joint". We've been coming here for several years for brunch and lunch, and enjoy the food. I don't really see it as a dinner spot, but right through afternoon snacks, this place is great. I love the veggie and chicken paninis, which come with a side salad and are served hot and gooey with cheese. I LOVE the veggie burger here which does NOT come from a box, but which is clearly hand-made and delish. Ryan likes the burgers, and the bar food- nachos and quesadillas- are really good too. On a nice sunny day I love sitting by the open windows and watching people go by. Fun fact, it was featured in the the film "PS I Love You", so if you've seen the movie, you've already spent some time in this bar. The bar is over 100 years old, I believe, and has a great tin ceiling and wooden bar.
The reviews on Yelp are hit or miss, and I have heard this too. But I think I've almost always had hits- the complaints about mixed drinks just make me want to stick to the iced tea, wine, and beer option. I have never really tried some of the more complex food items either, so I suppose my advice is to just stick to the bar basics, and you should be satisfied too!!
