Fiddler’s Elbow has been a solid fixture in the Sugar House neighborhood since opening adjacent to its sister eatery Salt Lake Pizza and Pasta in 1996. The reason: good no-nonsense food, pool tables, free Wi-Fi, 30-plus beers on tap and a very friendly staff. There’s great bar food at this private club, including smoky chipotle hummus with a Southwestern zing, a great Mediterranean chopped salad, blackened rib eye, really tasty French dip sandwiches and excellent home-style meatloaf with mushroom sauce. Give the key lime pie and “Chocolate Thunder” desserts a whirl, too. And what the hell, you might as well round out the evening with a Kahlua and coffee.
