March 17, 2019: We were in Aurora and decided to stop by a pub for the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations this year. A quick Google search brought us to Father’s Moustache Grill & Bar which had high ratings and where we had the liveliest St. Patty’s Day celebration. They had live entertainment and green beer, and the owner gave us green necklaces with a shamrock pendant to celebrate in style!
We arrived at Father’s Moustache Grill & Bar at around 2:30 p.m. and was lucky enough to nab a comfortable booth seat in front of the bar. There was a singer who sung St. Patrick’s Day songs during the entire time we were there, which was so festive and really made the pub come to life.
Of course, we had to have green beers (my second time having such beverages). Our server was super. She was so friendly and cheery and came by often to check up on us. As we were done our drinks, she came by often to see if we wanted a second round.
We had chicken wings and a cottage pie from their regular menu. They had a special St. Patrick’s Day menu too, but I wasn’t feeling for any of the items on it. Their regular menu is vast and has so many great pub foods! They also serve pizza, pastas, and Tex Mex food too!
I ordered the large order of Chicken Wings in medium and unbreaded. It came with carrots and celery and a dip (blue cheese was my choice). The wings were all right. They weren’t dry but not exactly tender either.
Ken chose the Homemade Cottage Pie, which was a fantastic choice of comfort food. It was lean ground beef, peas, corn, bermuda onions topped with mashed potatoes, gravy, and melted cheese. There was a choice of fries, garden salad, or soup of the day. I really enjoyed the cottage pie. The mashed potatoes were incredibly smooth yet “chewy” if that makes any sense. The warm gravy and melted cheese were perfect.
The drinks kept flowing and a lot of patrons wore festive green outfits, donned green headgear or hats, and face art too. It was such a nice and cozy neighborhood pub! I’m so glad that we chanced upon it!
Oh, and do you know why they are called “Father’s Moustache Grill & Bar”? We noticed that there were portraits of famous men with moustaches along the walls of the pub.
