Landmark Americana, West Chester, PA

We went to the Landmark Americana for two reasons. One, Brian and Nicole have been there and said it was good. Two, kids eat free on Sundays. Since we had two kids with us that sounded like a good idea. 

It is a rather large place with big televisions strategically placed, all tuned to the big game. It wasn't all that crowded on a Sunday afternoon so they put three tables together for the six of us. One of those tables was superfluous but we spread out.

Really good, expensive beer

I included the picture of the beer, something I don't normally do, for two reasons. First, it was very good. It was a Union Jack IPA from Firestone Brewing in California and it was hoppy enough, yet light and crisp with a good aftertaste. The second reason is that it was seven bucks a pint so I thought it deserved a place on this page. I had two (I wasn't aware of the price) so the beers cost more than my meal.

Parmesan Garlic Wings

We tried the wings as there was a fifty cent wing special. The parmesan garlic shown above were good, but the traditional hot wings were better.

Southwestern Burger

I ordered the Southwestern Burger at twelve bucks. It had pepper jack cheese, bacon, chipotle dressing and guacamole. What it lacked was flavor. It was hard to believe that with all that good stuff on it, the burger was bland. Brian had the shepherd's pie which he said was also bland.

The service was okay, atmosphere typical sport's bar, the food mediocre. Would I go back? Maybe, but I think I'd go to the Iron Hill Brewery up the street sooner.
