Entrance to Al’s Pub Shack

On Monday, April 8, Al Bowers, owner of Al’s Burger Shack, opened another restaurant near Governors Club, called Al’s Pub Shack. It is located at 50050 Governors Village.

The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. Friday and Saturday. They are currently closed on Sundays for now, but there is a possibility for brunch to be served on Sundays in the future.

Bowers explained his idea behind opening the Pub Shack.

“I opened the Pub Shack because I saw a void in a market there and thought it would be a good investment. Also, I wanted a place to hang out,” said Bowers in an email interview.

In addition to the menu’s differences from his other restaurants, the vibe of the restaurant likewise differs with table service, with a wait staff, bar with bartenders and multiple TVs, their sit-down restaurant differs from Al’s Burger Shack.

In contrast to Bowers’ other restaurants, Al’s Pub Shack’s menu features more  sandwiches than burgers, as well as a larger selection of sides and appetizers, but also dishes such as chili, fish and chips and a variety of desserts. With the food, also comes a wider selection of drinks for adults. Bowers explained the changes in the menu

“The menu is more diverse than the Burger Shack because it is a different concept. Because it’s a pub, we have all mixed beverages as well as wine and beer,” said Bowers.

With the Pub Shack being open for over a month now,  the reviews have been positive.

“The feedback has been mostly positive but we have a long way to go,” said Bowers.

With a varied menu, wide variety of drinks, and a friendly atmosphere, Al’s Pub Shack can easily become a family favorite, perfect for spending times with family or catching a game while grabbing a drink with your friends.
