fighting the lack of good ideas

growler’s pub

I’ll be coming back to Growler’s Pub next week (the one at 783 Old Ballas Road). To date (and I haven’t been to S’Mac in Manhattan, yet), Growler’s has the best macaroni and cheese I’ve had out.

Yesterday afternoon I was discussing where to go for food with Mike, and started searching for pubs near 63017. Growler’s jumped out due to its proximity to the customer we’re working on this week, and the glowing reviews when doing a local search on Google didn’t hurt 😉

When we rolled-in at about 6p, a scant 12 minutes after leaving our customer site, we were seated, and had menus – both for food and beer – and set to scouring them for what we wanted. Mike found a steak, and the corn-on-the-cob that came with it looked mighty tasty. We do have slightly differing tastes in how moo-ey we like our meat, so I can’t say that the steak looked all that great to me, but I like mine hot, whereas he likes his towards charcoal.

I don’t even know what kind of soup I had last night, because the mac & cheese was so good. My cohort in crime had seconds on the macaroni. I should have, but was feeling a little off due to allergies here in St Louis 🙁

Their beer selection isn’t as large as that of the Flying Saucer, but they still have about 130 to pick from. As I’ve mentioned previously, I love a good Scotch. Scotch whisky is a drink you respect – you can’t slam it, and why would you want to? They  have such rich flavor contours that you savor it. Growler’s Single Malt Scotch list has about 30 choices, from all over Scotland. They have a few blended Scotches available, too – but I wouldn’t order any of them, personally.

Our waitress, Courtney, was very friendly – acting like she actually appreciated having customers, whereas some places I’ve been recently acted like they didn’t care if you were there or not. Places such as the latter I tend to not give repeat business to. Growler’s has an overall friendly, neighborhood feel to it, and has menu choices ranging down to kid-size portions.

Oh, and one more thing. Growler’s has a Bathtub Dessert option.

For the low low price of only $1500, they’ll come fill your bathtub with any of their dessert items.

So far no one has ordered said item, that Courtney knew of, but maybe you could be the first! 😀
