We love our local community, and fellow local establishments. This week  is Oshkosh Restaurant Week (January 25 – 31, 2018), and it presents a perfect opportunity for us to show our support to some of our favorite local restaurants. Runner’s need to eat, and we love to dine at our local favorites to indulge and refuel.

Oshkosh store manager, Will, took some time to highlight his favorite restaurants in Oshkosh.

Fox River Brewing Company has been brewing some of the best beer around for many years in Oshkosh. They have also been serving some of the best food in town just as long. To highlight a few of my current favorites: Crunch Chicken Tenders, Bam Bam Shrimp and the Pan-Fried Crab Cakes for starters. Then, onto the Beer Cheese Steakburger or the Scottish Ale Fish and Chips to complete your meal. Always chase the food down with an Oshkosh Strong or a Blu Bobber for a great finish. Check out their current menu, here: FRBC_OSH_Menu_January

We always enjoy having Pub Runs in partnership with Fox River Brewing Company.  Bonus: They are neighbors of the Wiouwash Trail!

One of the reasons I love Becket’s is their nightly specials: Monday 1/2 price burgers, Tuesday $3 featured tacos, Wednesday wine, cheese & jazz, Thursday all night happy hour, to name a few. My wife sings the praises of their Potato Croquette.  Plus, it’s right on the Oshkosh Riverwalk, which means I can go for a jog and stop off for a beer (gotta replenish those carbs!).

The Granary has reopened as a brew pub adding to the new development in the Sawdust District, with Fifth Ward Brewing Company opening recently as well. That to me is worth a lot, as I love this city, care about it, and am a huge fan of seeing it continue to develop.  I recommend you check out their new take on fire-grilled pizza.

I applaud the variety of nightly specials I’ve seen at Gardina’s. Plus, some of the best wine and beer selections you could possibly ask for. Under the same ownership, I’m not surprised that wonderful and creative menu items are a staple at Ruby Owl. Avocado fries? Yes, please!  Did you know that Ruby Owl also boasts a Crowler system that allows them to can tap beers? That is pretty cool in my opinion.

I hope you have a chance to check out one, two or ALL the restaurants participating in Oshkosh Restaurant Week! Good restaurants provide a great quality of life to our community by being there when you need a go-to date spot, when you just don’t feel like cooking, or for the many tourists that visit for a number of different festivals and events in Oshkosh. Show your support by stopping out to participating restauraunts during Oshkosh Restaurant Week!
