Crogan's, Montclair Village, Oakland

I am a frequent visitor to the Monteclair Village of Oakland. There are several dining options, most of them catering to families and take-away's. Crogan’s is a American pub serving a lot of American classics. I’ve eaten here on various occasions, the food has always struck me as hearty, basic and fills a nitch in the local scene. They also have a bar with big-screens.

For lunch this time in, I ordered a daily special, Crogan’s open-faced, blackened  rib-eye sandwich. It lived up to the basic expectations set forth from earlier experiences. The blackening job was reasonably spicy and with the addition of a chipotle mayonnaise, additional fat and spice were a spoonful away. I didn’t have to trim too much away from the meat and the steak was done at a medium temperature.

The coleslaw was a bit wet and saucy for me, but was probably healthier than French fries.

I’ll probably keep going to Crogan’s for no-nonsense, family dining
