Our Review

Links Taproom is more bar than restaurant; the food seems to be there solely to line the stomachs of patrons, allowing them to absorb some of the 36 beers and three wines on tap. There's no table service, and the left side of the menu covers a somewhat alarming range, from shrimp cocktail to hummus to Caesar salad to empanadas to fried smelt. The right side of the menu, devoted to house-made sausages served with myriad toppings, is more promising. The Deer Creek sausage, a venison link with cherry cider compote, pickled vegetables, and arugula, was pleasantly gamy, but an even better bet is the bratwurst, made with veal and pork shoulder; we opted for the caramelized beer onions and stout mustard on top. Links boasts that its fries are hand cut, but the thin strips of potato that arrived could have used a harder fry, and once they got cold not even the dipping sauces—we chose goat cheese-garlic and bourbon barbecue—could make them appealing.
