Best Bar For Eatin’

You may be hitting the bars for some drinks and games, but while you’re out you should grab a bite to eat —  it may just turn into the highlight of your night. The Valley’s nine-time bar food champion, Girolamo’s Court’n House (113 W. Grand Ave., Eau Claire) dishes out the best of the best, especially when it comes to its fish fry and burgers (also top “Best Of” choices). The second stop on your list, the Amber Inn Bar & Grill (840 E. Madison St., Eau Claire), serves up pub food classics in a cozy, historic environment. Finally, Milwaukee Burger Co. (2620 E. Clairemont Ave., Eau Claire) offers the ultimate taste of Wisconsin with super-sized burgers, cheese curds, and drinks. — Hillary Bell
