The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
Despite its name, The Olde Pub Bar & Grill is actually quite new. It takes over the Bellmore space that last housed Lincoln Station and, before that, Clearwater Charlies.
General manager Stephen Dixon described the place as having an Irish pub feel with wood floors, some lounge couch seating and flat screen TVs, for watching the game of the moment.
What distinguishes this pub is an on-site smoker turning out such items as pulled pork ($10.95), brisket ($11.95) and smoked turkey ($11.95). Also on the menu: calamari with three sauces ($11.95), French onion soup ($6.95), a Carolina burger topped with pulled pork ($11.95), a Reuben sandwich ($10.95) and shepherds pie ($12.95).
The Olde Pub Bar & Grill is at 216 Pettit Ave., Bellmore, 516-785-5500, theoldepub.com.
