The Grind House is definitely located in an unassuming location, just off McMullen Booth in Clearwater in a big, typical Florida strip mall. My friend who was taking our group there had raved about the food, so we tried to stay excited, but I was not feeling the location. Once you get inside, it's small and deep, with a long bar and dartboards set up in the back. Sort of like a typical dingy British pub, those of us who have been to London agreed. Much more like a bar than a restaurant, which might make you question ordering food... but don't. Order it!
I got the Chicken Pot Pie, which my friend had been raving about. It was crumbly, warm, perfectly portioned, golden brown.. SO good. Everyone tried it and agreed. The mashed potatoes and gravy it was served with were fine, but that was the star.
Other entrees were Chicken Curry, Blackened Chicken Alfredo, and Fish and Chips. The curry was peanut-y and the raisins were a nice touch. The alfredo looked mouth-watering, and from all reports it was delicious. The fish in the fish and chips was flaky and tasty, although there was a lot of batter. The chips, or fries, were very good.
For an app, we got Buffalo Chicken Dip with tortilla chips, and scraped it dry. Very tasty, though not a huge portion. For drinks, we got a mix of tap English ciders and beer and bottled beer.
Everything was pretty good, service wasn't great, but the server was also the bartender. Would go back with another group or friends who live in the area, especially on a livelier night.
This place has the ABSOLUTE best wings in the Bay Area. Their hamburgers, fish & buffalo chicken sandwiches are great too. Everything I've had here is really good. I don't understand why it's not packed all the time. I'm a VERY picky eater when I go out. Everything I prepare is always better than just about anywhere I've eaten. Â There are a few places with awesome food in the area. This is one of those places!Review Source:
