On first impression, Leary Traveler inexplicably reminds me of the winter holidays… the kind of place you go after a day on the slopes or when you’re snowed in or without power. Maybe it was the dismal weather, maybe it was the jovial atmosphere in the pub. But it was festive, and I love me some holiday cheer!
Did you notice the asterisk that reads “Service Animals Only. No Questions Asked”? Yeah, me neither…
Leary says “Man’s best friend is a friend of ours so long as they’re friendly” and I have to say, the staff and the patrons were all so great to us. It’s pretty special to feel completely welcome with two huge black dogs.
This is extra-special because Leary Traveler is no dive bar. They have table service and a menu full of scrumptious choices. I mean, heck… they have Coffee Seared Elk New York Strip Steak!
I’m not a sweet potato fries kindove gal, but they are rumored to be A-MAZE-SAUCE. Just saying.
And did I mention the beverages?
We really enjoyed the Leary Traveler and will most certainly be back. We plan to check out the Happy Hour, which looks to be a great deal:
