Even knowing full well that my fat friends were planning a group visit to The Clubhouse Sports Grille in Monroe, Ohio this coming Friday, I was powerless to resist a text that came in Tuesday night as I was leaving work. The text simply said “I see beer in the near future”. To me that is almost the perfect text, lacking only the details of the time and place. Once those details were confirmed I soon found myself at The Clubhouse Sports Grille in Monroe.
This was far from my first time there, so I knew exactly what to expect, and I gladly went. I needed a drink!
I arrived shortly after 6:00 p.m. and joined a few friends at the bar. To my surprise, the place was really empty. At most during my time there I saw four tables in use.
That being said, when I ran into Vinny and Lucas this morning I put the brakes on the group visit this Friday.
I could not hold back any longer, my mind had been made up! There was no reason for the group to go. This was not the place for my teetotalling fat friends.
Don’t get me wrong. It’s a great place to drink, they have a nice atmosphere, friendly service, and tasty appetizers… But the entrees are only so, so and it’s expensive for what you get!
In hindsight it was the $9.00 Fish Sandwich that pushed me over the edge. It was most likely the $9.00 Chicken Cesar Salad that drove me to the edge the week prior. With the Fish Sandwich, it was just a bland, ”average” sized, filet on some pretty bread. It did come with chips, but fries were $1.00 extra. The Chicken Cesar Salad had a great flavor. But as you can see from the picture, there was just not much to it. In both cases I left hungry and wondering what I could eat next. Perhaps that’s a downside of being fat, but it is what it is.
So as I told Vinny and Lucas this morning, that’s all you need to know about The Clubhouse Sports Grille. Decent, but just too expensive for what you get.
