1898 Public House

Hours: Open Sun-Thu, 4-10 pm; Fri-Sat, 4-11 pm; brunch Sat-Sun, 8 am-4 pm

Given Chef Tyler Schwenk's background as former chef de cuisine at Beverly's at the Coeur d'Alene Resort, the chance of 1898 Public House being just another boring gastropub was pretty low. The burger ($16) is served with house-cured bacon and Cougar Gold white cheddar, and the fish ($15 for two pieces) is fresh cod accompanied by crispy coleslaw and housemade cocktail sauce. There are 16 regional craft beers on tap (ranging from $5.50 to $8), along with an array of top-shelf liquor and craft cocktails. (July 2016)
