Sunshine on a Winter Night

It isn't easy picking a restaurant for my family. We are the family of "constructive criticism" and everyone offers their opinion when it comes to picking a restaurant, well actually picking anything. Fortunately, I got thumbs up from everyone after we left Sunshine Tavern with full bellies. 

This is a small tavern, affiliated with Chef Jenn Louis' other restaurant, Lincoln. The menu is filled with your favorite comfort foods, including Chicken & Waffles, which was naturally my birthday pick for the evening. The rest of the group ordered burgers, salads and Monte Cristos. Sunshine Tavern was the perfect place for a casual atmosphere with some delicious pub fare. I also appreciate how they easily accommodated the nine of us, without complaint. 
The shuffle board was a great past time activity for the boys while we waited for our drinks and meal. The cocktails and beers were good but I am not too sure about the Beer Shandy drinks...I need to try a different one next time. I opted for the Lemon Shandy, which is a mix of lager and lemonade, served over ice. Interesting concept but I think I will stick with their signature cocktails or a draft beer. 
We had a fun time and a few of us have already been back. If you find yourself exploring the new hot spots on Division or want to stop in for a casual drink, this is a great place.
