The Grog Grill

Map863 W. Lancaster Ave.
Bryn Mawr, PA
  • Food and Drink


Sizable enough for two bites, these crispy, skewered, bacon-wrapped beauties arrive with a zesty, horseradish-laced dipping sauce for a combination that always delivers.

From 2009: Any college kid can tolerate an impromptu visit from Mom and Dad if a meal at the Grog is part of the deal. The restaurant's laid-back vibe and plasma televisions should provide enough of a calming distraction as you try to grill them about their grades. Younger diners gravitate toward one of the Grog's signature burgers (with a side of Old Bay fries); adults appreciate more sophisticated dishes like filet au poivre, Atlantic salmon and tuna steak.

From 2015: If you’re looking for a spot that’s reminiscent of your college days without the grimy bathrooms, then the Raptis family’s Grog Grill is it. Students and parents alike gather for the craft-beer selection and snappy cocktails (try the Bees Knees, Tanqueray floating atop a wheat beer). The expansive menu includes standard bar fare, Irish-inspired entrées, flavor packed pastas, New York strip steaks and much more.

Best Bar for Students (And Their Parents) 2016: Always a comfortable hangout for the local college crowd, this watering hole holds its own for tuition-drained parents, as well. Choose from salads and wraps, if you're trying to be good—or go all the way with the jaw-stretching Bryn Mawr Crunch Burger and smothered fries. For the more advanced drinker, there’s the Añejo Manhattan.
