Stout Bar & Grill in Fort Lauderdale Revamps the Menu

Driving past Stout Bar & Grill in Fort Lauderdale, it can be all too easy to assume the establishment is just another Irish pub. But step inside, and you'll realize you should never judge a restaurant by its name.

Sure, it has all the usual Irish pub requirements: Over 40 HDTV screens, booth and table seating for up to 200, and a beautiful hand-crafted copper bar offering about 100 different whiskeys, 50 beers, and more than two dozen wines. But it's the menu that proves this isn't your average bar -- and you won't be ordering the usual bar fare.

Stout Bar & Grill opened just over two years ago off Andrew's Blvd., a concept inspired by the Irish heritage of owner Simon Kearney. But while Irish dishes like shepherd's pie, bangers and mash, lamb stew and corned beef and cabbage have been mastered here, it's the specialty selections created by executive chef Charlie Miller that make Stout stand out from the bar crowd.
