Went in at a slow time and there were plenty of tables. Staff too busy talking to each other. They all saw me. Nobody spoke to me. After five minutes I left. Felt like the staff was under the impression they were celebrities.

The food was served hot! Baja chicken was excellent as well as the meatball grinder and philly. The Bloody Marys were not the greatest but not lacking on alcohol. Definitely will go back.

Stopped here for some late night pizza. It was awesome! The pizza is a New York style thin crust. Very much of a dive bar, but great atmosphere.

Went based on the philly reviews. Blah. Not so hot and expensive yes sir. Check out the ultra hip maintenance man. Had a knife on his leg (like mad max) and three on his hip. I felt really safe. The lighting in the bathroom is...More

Wow. How messed up is the "new menu". What a busy pukefest! Who designed that nightmare? The printing is small, wordy and crowded. What a disaster. It's Grinders. Keep it simple.
