Although Park & Rec doesn’t serve it’s own food, they’ve teamed up with Royale with Cheese, who offers food in the back area. All you have to do is order at the back window, and they’ll bring the food to you. During our visit, we had the Royale with Cheese (a Wagyu beef patty burger!), 57 Chevre, and a side of Kootz’ Magical Mystery tots. The food was delicious and very impressive for being bar food! We highly recommend the burger. I loved my 57 Chevre too, but the only thing was that my bread was a bit overtoasted for my taste.

Overall, we could see ourselves coming back to hang out here. We’ve even talked about possibly hosting one of our birthday parties here in the future. :)

Even though we’re mostly beer and whiskey drinkers, we liked trying out the cocktails to see how well the bartenders mixed their drinks. They were very helpful with finding us what fit our palettes. The ambience creates a great space to meet people or you can find a corner to yourself if you come early enough to beat the crowds. When you’re ready for a bite, you can pick up some delicious food to pair with your drinks!

Also, if you really want to get the best bang for your buck, you can stop by during their 4-6PM Happy Hour. They offer a lot of their same, great cocktails for $5.
