Comfort Food
With a nod to European influences, new Executive Chef Edward West cooks up hearty comfort food. From Shepherd’s Pie to Bangers and Mash, Chicken Paprikash, Beef Stroganoff, Corned Beef Boxtys and Lake Erie Perch, the entrees offer a sampling of global flavors.

Even the appetizers are hearty here, with Reuben Pierogies stuffed with corned beef and sauerkraut then finished with Thousand Island dressing, caramelized onions and scallions. The popular Irish Nachos with kettle chips are layered with pulled pork, apple wood smoked bacon, scallions and beer cheese sauce.

Lively Libations
In the true sense of a pub, Gandalf’s is a neighborhood gathering place serving libations and hosting live music on Saturday nights. From beer on tap to fancy raspberry swirl martinis, the bar delivers on a fun time. On Thursday nights, everyone is invited to take the mic and belt out a favorite song during karaoke.
