I had one bad expierence here, and it's skewed my opinion on Gritty's permanently. A few years back, when I was 18, I went to Gritty's to eat lunch with a friend (it was about 11:30 AM). My friend and I ordered our NOT alcoholic drinks, which apparently sent up red flags to our waitress. ""Wait, no beers?"" she asked. Not a beat later she says, ""How old are you guys?"" We tell her we're 18, and she then kicks us out, telling us that we're not allowed to eat there because we're underage and without a gaurdian. Oddest part of all, I had eaten there, with the same friend, only a couple weeks before, without any problems. This was a BIG disappointment, and I can honestly say I have not been back to Gritty's in a very long time.
Pros: good food, good beer
Cons: terrible waitstaff, inconsistent, a tad pricey
