Odd Fellows Brewing Co. – 124 Main St, Nashua, NH 03060
While visiting family up in New Hampshire, Jerry and I were out in the town of Nashua visiting with his niece Charlotte and grand nephew Keenan. I was getting hungry as usual, so Charlotte recommended Odd Fellows Brewing Co. as a place for us to stop in and have a bite.
There are actually two sections of the bar. One has the restaurant side with nice tables and high tops with a view of the brewing operations since they make their house brews on premise. The other section has pool tables and such and has a more neighborhood bar feel to it. We decided to sit in the restaurant section. I was actually quite surprised that it was not busier for lunch time, but it was during the week. I was told that in the evenings and especially on weekends the place is packed.
One of the cool things here is they offer an array of 30+ whiskeys. They also have a nice menu of food items and specialty beers.
Jerry decided to go with the French Onion Soup. Odd Fellows serves this in a nice ceramic crock. The cheese was nice and bubbly on top with a hint of crusting to it. He told us that there was a good flavored broth and onions cooked perfectly. He would order it again.
Charlotte went with the Mediterranean salad. This salad is made with marinated chicken, mixed greens, artichokes, couscous, roasted red peppers & red onion in red wine vinaigrette with barrel aged feta & toasted pita bread. The chicken was cooked to her liking and was perfectly seasoned. The vinaigrette was made with a red wine which she got on the side. It added a very nice flavor to the salad which is made of fresh mixed greens combined with artichokes. She thought the couscous added a different flavor and texture to the salad and would be something that she would order again.
Keenan ventured into their list of sandwiches and decided upon the short rib panini. His sandwich was made with slow braised Angus short ribs, sour pickles, aged white cheddar & Carolina Gold sauce on pressed bread. Keenan said that the short ribs were tender and juicy. The aged white cheddar was paired perfectly to the short ribs and added flavor to the sandwich. The Carolina Gold sauce is a BBQ sauce that can be a bit over powering, but in moderation and if you get it on the side it will provide a nice flavor to the meat.
For my sandwich, I chose the Cuban. Odd Fellows makes their’s with Pecan smoked ham, pulled pork, pickles, provolone & pub mustard on pressed focaccia romano. Living in Florida you eat a lot of Cuban sandwiches. And I must say that Odd Fellows created a very good variation. Both the pork and ham had very good flavors and the pub mustard added some additional flavor to the sandwich. The way they pressed Keenan’s and my sandwich, we both felt it added a bit of crispness. I would definitely recommend this Cuban to anyone.
Keenan and I also had fries with our lunches, but they were not like your normal french fries. They almost looked like they were cut into the shape of onion petals. They were pretty well seasoned and when dipped in ketchup were a favorite for both of us.
