Greene’s Pour House [Salmon BLT Sandwich]
Greene’s Pour House in Neenah is one of those places that I have driven by 100 times but never tried out until recently. Greene’s is located on Wisconsin Avenue in Neenah and has been there for a few years. We went to check it out for dinner on a Thursday night and it was hopping!
Thursday Night Band & Crowd
Getting there at around 8:00 PM, the place was packed. There was a small band playing in the corner and high school basketball on every TV. The place is not too big, with probably a dozen or two tables along with plenty of seats around the bar. There was some room at the bar, but luckily a pub table opened up just as we walked up to it. Even with a band playing in the corner, it was not too loud. We could still hear each other talk without shouting across the table. It must have been some type of folks-bluegrass band playing, which is also why it probably wasn’t screaming loud.
P.A.B.S.T or Salmon BLT?
I knew I was going to be checking this place out soon, so I asked a few friends for some suggestions. A few people recommended the same thing, the P.A.B.S.T. (Provolone, Avocado, Bacon, Salad greens, and Turkey served on grilled sourdough or whole grain). Although this sounded wonderful, I continued to look through the menu. The Salmon BLT sandwich caught my attention right away. It was a pan-seared salmon filet on toasted sourdough with lemon pepper mayo, bacon, lettuce, tomato and onions, served with a side of house-made coleslaw. I was sold.
For being packed, the service was not bad. The one or two waitresses were at no point walking or standing. They were running around filling beers, bringing food from the kitchen and clearing off tables. The food didn’t take too long and it looked mighty tasty when it arrived at the table. The salmon was moist and had a bit of a sweet glaze on the outside, which went great with the overall taste of the sandwich. The toasted sourdough was amazing! I am not sure, but if I had to guess it was either homemade or from Great Harvest Bread Co. down the street. One negative thing about the sandwich? They forgot the lemon pepper mayo (but I didn’t really miss it).
Overall, it was a good experience and I would go back. The sandwich was $9.49 and was worth it. Oh, on a side note, the cole slaw was, well, okay. Check it out. They are open daily at 11:00 AM.
