I love the portion size! Always bring food home and have a second meal the following day. The hamburgers are huge, and delicious! Prices are a little on the high side but you get what you pay for. The biggest turn off is the wait to get in. I know, a good place is worth the wait but 45 minutes... More

This place has fantastic food!! We were told by several of the locals about this place and that we needed to go! Hate that it took us so long to get there. They make fresh 12 oz hamburgers that are soooo good and then there are the wings....We ordered some garlic parmesan wings and all I can say is YUMMY!!... More

It's good but the bartender was kind of weird. She took our menus but didn't take our order so we waited a couple minutes and then she finally realized she left her pad by us and never took our order. She was also weird about serving my 23 year oldboyfriend alcohol. She asked his astrological sign and he doesn't follow... More

This was our second visit to this pub and enjoyed it as much as the first time. The food continues to be great although I would have been fine with a smaller burger! Theirs are HUGE and impossible to eat without cutting it in half. No matter, because the food is always great. My sister who lives in the area... More

My husband & family loves Grovers! They have the biggest, amazing cheeseburgers & my favorite is there cheeseburger soup. It's so good & different than any other soup I've had. The 2 things about Grovers that I don't care for - they only take cash (they do have a atm, but still! what restaurant in 2014 only takes cash!) &... More

Their burgers are so big, you need to share with someone. They have a great fish fry to. They do not take credit card, only down fall.

A very small establishment with limited seating. You may have to wait a long time to be seated but it is worth the wait. Friendly staff. The cheeseburger soup is very good. I also tried the garlic wings which had a great taste and fresh garlic was used. My friend ordered a hamburger which was huge and he enjoyed it.... More

If a crappy flat-grill fried burger is made ’bigger’ - its just a bigger crappy burger! There was nothing, nothing that distinguished the burgers here from substandard fare you get a greasy spoon. Cheap (high fat) meat, sloppily pulled lettuce leaves & unevenly sliced flavorless bulk tomatoes. Cheap greasy cheese & 'caramelized' onions and a dense dry roll didn't help... More
