Don't Overlook Bert's in St. Francis
Sitting inconspicuously on the south shore of St. Francis, Bert's Bar (3907 S. Lake Drive) is the sort of place where everybody knows your name—real fast. Aside from the personable bartenders, Bert's features a comfortable patio facing the lake, a remarkable selection of beer, booze and wine and good bar food. The burgers are heaped with mushrooms and onions and served on a tasty bun, the Friday fish fry is lightly breaded and accompanied by a huge slice of toasted Italian bread and most offerings come with a generous helping of creamy, slightly tangy coleslaw. Look for the soup of the day and daily specials at this easy-to-overlook spot near the lake.
