From the great outside patio, Emerald Isle has a biker bar/roadhouse vibe - but inside, there's a total role reversal, with a pleasant dining room and bar, caricatures of regulars on the walls and friendly service. The music is good (if Metallica and '90s alterna-metal is your thing), and the food can be great: Americanized Mexican, with killer avocado-and-bacon cheeseburgers and smothered chimichangas that take up an entire plate.
