Crowley's Downtown - downtown St Petersburg, FL
Crowley's is one of those places that has a great neighborhood vibe and says we are part of the downtown community. It's a relaxed place where you can grab a pint with friends or grab a seat at the bar and watch the game. Or better yet, grab a seat on the sidewalk outside and people watch, which is always fun when you are on Central Avenue. We opted to dine outside on the day we were there.
We started by ordering a Smithwick's to drink as it always goes great by itself or with pub grub. Not sure how hungry we were, we started with the Reuben Egg Rolls that someone had recommended to us. Cold beers in hand, our egg rolls soon arrived. The egg rolls are served with a 1000 Island dipping sauce and they were every bit as good as we had been told. They were quite substantial and could easily make a meal for one. After finishing the egg roll, we were full enough that we decided to share a Reuben with fries. Again, the sandwich was very good and a huge portion. Even if I hadn't had the egg roll, this was of a size to share, depending upon your appetite. My son had a cheeseburger and he was quite happy with his choice. Overall a great neighborhood hangout with good food and service.
