Lakefront seafood restaurant with a view
When: Monday-Friday 4-6pm
The Deal: Seafood deals are few and far between around here, so Harbor House's happy hour is one to take note of. Freshly shucked oysters and clams are $1.25 each, while fish and chips, mussels, and a half pound of peel-and-eat shrimp are $8.95. On the drinks side, select drafts and house wines are $5, while specialty cocktails are $6.
Ward's House of Prime
Downtown steakhouse known for giant slabs of prime rib
When: Monday-Friday 4-7pm
The Deal: While you won't get a deal on a hunk of prime rib during HH, you will leave watered and fed at Ward's. Three-dollar drinks include rail cocktails, Miller, CiderBoys and Point taps, or get house wine or specialty martinis for $5. For another fiver, get egg rolls, mozzarella sticks, or Sriracha chicken bites, or various flatbreads for $6.
Dim, club-like bar off Cathedral Square
When: Tuesday-Friday 4-8pm and all day Mondays
The Deal: All wines and tap beers are a buck off during happy hour, which is really not a great deal at all. But, lots of top-ish shelf drinks are only $4, huzzah! That includes Ketel One and all its flavors, Jack Daniels, Bombay, Captain Morgan, Bacardi, Korbel, Bulleit, so go wild. There are also some rudimentary free apps, but they go fast.
