My sister moved to rural Tennessee a couple of years ago. Seems to be a lot of them in that area.

No pubs near here unfortunately. The closest thing to a pub is a local bar that has fantastic burgers. Their black and bleu burger is awesome. But other than awesome burgers, none of the classic pub menu items. My wife and I were talking about this again while out running errands this afternoon and we found it interesting that the different college towns we visited with our kids all had really cool pubs and similar type places that weren't chains. One of the reasons we loved visiting our kids while they were in college is the food we could get there even though the towns themselves were smaller than where we live. It seems colleges attract a lot of cool, low cost, eateries.
The place in my hometown made a cubed steak with mushroom gravy. OMG. And mashed potatoes...yum. French chocolate silk pie for dessert and I was a happy camper.

We used to see ham loaf on menus in WV. I like ham loaf far better than meatloaf. That sauce / glaze on ham loaf was just amazing. I have never seen it outside of WV/PA and parts of OH.

Gonna have to dust off the recipe my friend gave me and maybe make it for Easter.

I don't see a lot of things I used to see because we moved from WV/MD to Montana. There are really limited seafood options, however every damned restaurant here, including 'top end' ones have a one page burger menu. Burger, burger, burger.... that and ribeyes and filets.. You hardly see anything like chicken or pork dishes. It's beef, beef, beef.
Here prime rib is not even available at the upscale bigger city restaurants. The only place I know of is a "sports" bar & grill that has it on Fridays from 4:00 until it runs out. There were buffets with it in Las Vegas when I was there last in 2019.

Oh Lord it's everywhere. Ducks Unlimited banquet? Prime Rib. Sportsbar and Casino? Primer Rib. Brewhouse restaurant? Prime Rib. 1/2 of the bars? Prime Rib. Dairy Queen? Prime Rib...

Okay kidding about Dairy Queen but it is EVERYWHERE here. Google 'Helena Prime Rib Specials' and it will be at least 20 or more just in our little town...

Definitely chicken cordon bleu. Not my type of thing.

You really don't see that much ham anymore.

I grew up in an area where canned hams were popular. Canned hams with canned vegetables. Nothing was seasoned, other than with salt, and was pretty much flavorless.

Interesting. Shrimp Scampi was definitely a mid-price restaurant trend in the 1990s where I live. We even had a restaurant that was called "Scampi's." It was a steak and sea place. Understood and agree about Italian menus, it's just shrimp with butter and garlic, so classic in that respect.

Maybe it wasn't common in your region before that.
