Thanksgiving Dinner Pizza? I’d never heard of such a thing, but I was raring to try.
Late Friday, it looked desolate and dark outside Shamrock Bar and Pizza in Superior. Inside, it was bright and lovely with rich woods, long booths and big-bulbed lights. The space has a restaurant and bar. Both were pretty quiet, with our group of parade-goers dining next to two families.
Most of us ordered the T-Day special. It comes with comforting gravy instead of marinara, chunks of stuffing, light and dark turkey slivers, cheese and a side of jam-like, mild and chunky cranberry sauce. I’m not historically a fan of the latter, but this was perfecto.
I’d also never had gravy on pizza, but as you’d imagine, it’s spectacular. And “messy,” said a dining gal. It all hit the spot, readying the taste buds for the holidays.
Shamrock offers dairy-free rice cheese and gluten-free crust for an additional price, and I was impressed with both. I did sample a mini-slice of the regular pie. That was (even more) scrumptious.
They've been experimenting with different pizzas of the month for about a year, said general manager Jerry Joos. Poutine with gravy, cheese curds and fries; brats and sauerkraut; a gyro; a Philly. The Thanksgiving Dinner Pizza is on the menu through November.
Prices range $13-$20 for their pizza that ranges from Chicken Club to Mac and Cheese. Shamrock has a build-your-own option, and a selection of flatbread sandwiches, starters and desserts.
Note: They do not accept cards, but there’s an ATM in the bar. Also note: Pay in the bar when you get your bill. Avoid waiting 10 minutes to settle up at the table like we did.
