The Secret’s Out

The Wooden Keg Tavern in St. Clair is an Irish pub and restaurant with a bit of a history. The building was originally a hotel in the 1860s. According to local lore, it was a gathering place for the Molly Macguires. Stop by, and it will quickly become your favorite hangout too.

The Wooden Keg serves traditional Irish dishes and pub food with a gourmet twist. The menu pairs perfectly with their large selection of beers.

The Wooden Keg offers indoor and outdoor seating, including a bar and a family-friendly dining room. Kick back with a pint in the Molly Macguire Tunnel Room, located in a passageway that formerly connected the building to a distillery across the street. Today, it’s an intimate dining space with a cool flair. They also have a ‘20s-themed speakeasy room for private parties, complete with a hidden entryway.

Menu Highlights

Start off with an order of wings. The Wooden Keg has over 40 flavors, including sauces like Irish whiskey BBQ. As for apps, try the handmade “bufferogies,” pierogies tossed in house wing sauce.

The Wooden Keg’s specialty fries, creative burgers, and barbeque sandwiches take classic bar food to a whole new level. Treat yourself to comfort food like the mac-n-cheese burger topped with creamy pasta and crispy bacon.
