Try the express lunch very inexpensive and so much selection you could eat here everyday (I almost do!) Really nice service and the Food is amazing. Since I am now a regular, although I have not met him, I know that the Chef has been there a really long time, that he makes world famous homemade CLAM CHOWDER, that he tries to order GRASS FED, ORGANIC, offers excellent VEGAN OPTIONS and tries to BUY LOCAL. Grendel's somehow does this and all for HALF the price of other restaurants!!! There is a uncomplicated, no fuss and straight-forwardness to this place that I really like. Dont expect fancy or foo foo and come casual and you will be a very happy customer. Also be nice to the waitstaff - they work so hard! I always overtip when I get the express lunch - which is meant to bring folks in, like the half off dinners, for drinks - but since I dont drink at lunch - I figure they deserve the tip! Okay now you know my new favorite place - be nice!
