Olaf’s is so much more than somewhere to wait to get into Rupee Bar next door. It’s also a place to drink, play pinball, and eat some great food. They have the usual suspects, like pretzels with beer cheese, hot wings, and burgers, along with some exciting surprises like clams steamed in a coconut red curry sauce, and corn dogs with a cilantro-jalapeño-infused cornbread batter. If you’re with friends who want to hang out at a dive but don’t necessarily want something fried, bring them here.
