Conveniently located next to Washington Square Mall, Gustav's Pub & Grill is the perfect place for a late dinner or dessert. With comfortable cushion seats and ambient lighting, Gustav's caters to families, couples and friends looking for a cozy outing.
The menu boasts of Northwestern, European and German cuisines, with Shepherd's pie, fondue and bier sausage. Their prices are very affordable with many entree options under $10.
Chicken strips, for example, are only $6 and while the portion is somewhat small for the more ravenous appetites, the low price is redemptive. For non-alcoholic beverages, the blackberry lemonade for only $3.25 is a sure hit with actual berries and just the right amount of tangy sweetness.
Gustav's also caters to people with restrictive dietary habits, offering many of its entrees as gluten-free upon request. Gluten-free persons may also opt for the Bavarian Creme or Chocolate lovers flourless cake on the dessert menu. Other dessert items, not included in gluten-free form, include Apple strudel, Creme Brulee and Homemade chocolate brownies.
The Apple strudel, for only $5.25, is sure to please with tart warm apples and sweet apricot jam. Served with sprinkled powdered sugar and a dollop of whipped cream, the only con is that a portion size isn't any bigger.
With kind waiters, cozy seating and consciousness of dietary restrictions, Gustav's Pub & Grill caters to a wide range of people looking for a delicious bite. Be sure to visit during Happy Hour when you can find entrees, soups and salads for under $5.
The only downfall is the small portion size of the less expensive menu options, but what do you expect for such an affordable price? Overall, Gustav's is a recommendable place to go with family, friends or a partner for a cheap bite and comfortable environment.
