  • The main draw at the Thirsty Scholar is the extensive beer selection, but don't overlook the food. Try the beer-battered fish and chips or the Irish bangers and mash.
  • Great beer list that is ever changing and being updated. For food, only three words matter: Sweet. Potato. Fries.
  • Packers fans gather here for Packers games. GO PACK GO!
  • Great Calamari!!!! Rhode Island style all the way.
  • They have a huge beer list, and being a college pub it's quiet during the holidays.

  • Really fantastic local taps - ipas, dipas especially.
  • Reasonably priced, delicious cocktails with a homey vibe

  • The "spicy" fries are delicious and not spicy at all. They taste like curly fries and I want to eat them all.
  • Rick & Violetta are awesome and the specials are truly a value for the $$! The beers change frequently and there's always a reason to visit.
  • Trivia and burgers. What else could you want?
  • Oh my goodness, is their shepherd's pie the definition of comfort food. Super flavorful; perfect paired with a Guinness on a cold night.
  • Give the black bean sweet potato burger a try, you won't be disappointed!
  • Get the turkey burger
  • Try the potato skins, they're awesome
  • Absolutely LOVE Rick and his wife! Waitresses though, iffy and seem like they talk a lot of shit as I'm right next to the waitress stand... Never a good look!
