IMG_0564Marlene, Visitor Information Specialist for Visit Lafayette-West Lafayette, shares her spring visit to Sgt. Preston's of the North! With the weather being as wonderful as it has been lately, I decided to grab a drink at Sgt. Preston's. Sgt. Preston's is located on North Street, near to the Wabash and the bridge on South Street/State Road 26 in Downtown Lafayette. It has been a local favorite since 1980. Sgt. Preston's has an awesome patio where you can sit outside and enjoy dinner and drinks with friends.  Along with my drink, I like to watch the cars coming down the South Street/State Road 26 Bridge at night. This bar/restaurant has Schooner night beer specials on Monday nights. You purchase a schooner or mini-pitcher for $5.00 and then bring it back on Monday nights to get a refill. Domestic beers are only $2.00! What a deal! They also have monthly food specials and they choose a beer of the month. [caption id="attachment_4985" align="alignright" ]Sgt.

My favorite appetizer is their mouth watering stuffed mushrooms. They are broiled mushrooms that are stuffed with crab and topped with cheese.  I also really like their Black and Bleu salad. It has romaine lettuce with thinly sliced New York strip steak topped with bleu cheese crumbles, tomatoes, green onions, and mushrooms. It's the best with ranch dressing!  My taste testing partner enjoys their Buffalo Style Chicken Wings with bleu cheese dressing and their delicious Preston Burger. If you and your friends are looking for a place to relax after a long week, enjoy the beautiful weather on the patio at Sgt. Preston's with your favorite drink.
