Found this place today, and already feel comfortable ranking it among my favorite places to eat. Of my family of 5 there were 5 solid votes that this place was awesome. Even little Levi kept chugging down his freshly made soup. (Disclaimer: Levi puts anything you place in front of him in his mouth. He’s kinda a big boy)
As we got out of our van to go inside, my wife questioned if we were going to be able to fit inside. From the street Tin Roof Grill doesn’t look like it is very big. Even when coming inside there were about a dozen tables along with a bar area. They make really good use of the space however, TRG could serve as a date night dinner, or a family brunch, or even serve as a sports bar. The only thing I would change would be to not sit at the table right by the entrance door, because it did get a bit drafty as people came and went. Other than that, I really liked the atmosphere.
Tin Roof Grill offers as their main menu selection a number of tapas, or small plates to go along with salads, sandwiches, and pizzas. On the North wall they have a few chalkboards that outline the daily specials as well as dessert choices. I was impressed with the selections, there were a number of gourmet selections from special tapas to some croquets, to specialty soups and entrees. We got a cup of creamy Harvest Soup to give Levi. He was definitely a chip off the ole block eating this stuff. Just as soon as we would give him one bite, his mouth was open immediately for the next bite.
The pizzas were made in a big oval-shaped flatbread. My kids split the pepperoni one. It tasted awesome! Tin Roof Grill would give any other pizza place a run for its money. Everything from the crust, to the sauce, to the cheese tasted great, and it was big enough to easily split for two kids.
My wife went with the cobb salad. I didn’t try this, but asked her about it. She said every thing was very fresh. The bacon was house cured and wasn’t the fake store-bought stuff. The cheese was moist and delicious. She loved the ranch dressing that came with it.
I was in the mood for a sandwich, and our waitress recommended the steak or chicken pesto sandwich so I went with the chicken. I asked about the Patatas Bravas, and she said they were basically steak fries. I have to confess, that I normally can’t stand potato wedges or steak fries. I’m not a fan of thick cut potato items. These fries, however, were some of the best I’ve ever tasted. There is a separate tapas plate that you can order your own portion of patatas bravas, and I was really tempted to order an additional one, because I finished these so fast. The green dipping sauce that came with these patatas was absolutely phenomenal! It was a garlic aioli dipping sauce that was impossibly good. In hindsight I should have asked if Tin Roof Grill sold the stuff by the barrel, because I would have ordered several and tied them to the roof of my mini van to take home with me. The sandwich was prepared on freshly baked bread. It was an interesting bread choice, but worked well with the chicken and pesto. Delicious!
With food this good, there was no way I wasn’t going to order a slice of their cheesecake. Just look at how beautiful this slice is! Look at the little drizzle of white chocolate sauce dripping down the side! Look at the huge fresh berries! Tin Roof Grill desserts are awesome! (And about 40% cheaper than Cheesecake Factory I might add)
I loved this place so much. Will be visiting again very soon and often. Most reviews I read online were good, so I will add mine to a long list of good reviews. Absolutely loved the food here and atmosphere. Service was great along with everything else.
