Granary in Oshkosh is one of my favorite places to eat, it’s my go-to whether I’m in the mood for a cocktail or a craft beer, a woodfired pizza or gourmet tapas. I can’t tell you what my favorite part is. I love the fireplace in the dining area, especially in chilly months. I love that they only serve craft beer from Wisconsin on their 30 taps. I could write a love letter to their braised short rib.
Their braised short rib ($12 – House Tater Tots, White Cheddar, Red Wine Jus) there are tater tots underneath all of that fall apart tender short rib and red wine jus. If I’m at Granary with my husband we split it as a starter, but I secretly love going to Granary with my girlfriend so I can eat it by myself as my main course. This is a dish that I crave constantly.
My new favorite thing at Granary is their Pork Belly Mac ($14 – Cavatappi, Creamy Cheese Sauce, Crisp Pork Belly) the cheese sauce is perfectly creamy and decadent, and the pork belly is melt in your mouth delicious. I think this has become my daughter’s favorite plate to steal from, she orders their wood fired pizza, but steals a bite or two (or four) from my plate when I order this.
Granary’s pizza is always delicious. They have your standard Margherita, but also pizzas like the Hot Italian Sausage & Portobello ($12 – Jalepeno, Pepper Jack, Basil Leaf, portobello Italian Sausage). This pizza has the perfect amount of heat.
If you’re looking for a deal. Monday’s are half priced pizza and beer nights, plus, they always have a featured pizza of the night. It’s a steal, wood fired artisan pizzas and a huge craft beer selection for half price, it’s cheaper than getting pizza at a chain restaurant. We always take advantage and order a few pizzas to try out.
Here’s the Burratta & Bosc Pear pizza ($12 – Prosciutto, Arugula, Grana Cheese, Truffle Vinaigrette) it’s a great vegetarian option, but honestly a little too leafy for me. I’m the girl that writes love letters to short rib, not so much greens.
While I normally order a craft beer or two, sometimes I just have to get their salted caramel old fashioned. It’s so sweet that it tastes more like a drink made at Starbucks, and it’s garnished with a caramel and candied bacon. How adorable is that? The perfect start to your experience at Granary.
In winter you have a cozy fireplace, in summer you can opt to sit on the patio. I love that we can bring our dogs with in the warm months, they can sit under a patio table patiently waiting for pizza crust.
I just love this place, the ambience, the food, the drinks. I can’t get enough of it, and if you’re ever in Oshkosh I sure hope you try it. If you do, get the braised short rib and thank me later. You can visit Granary at 44 W 6th Ave Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
