With a fork in one hand and a pen in the other, let’s dive in: Grovers Bar and Grill

Grover’s Bar and Grill is a popular burger joint in East Amherst, NY. They are well known for their huge burgers, of course, but they are also known for their cheeseburger soup and many other dishes. They are very highly rated, an appropriate location for sports fans with their TV’s and overall casual atmosphere.


The Atmosphere at Grover’s Bar and Grill

As previously mentioned, the atmosphere at Grover’s Bar and Grill is casual and appropriate sports lovers although I would not classify it as a sports bar. The dining area and bar are a bit claustrophobic as Grover’s is not a very big restaurant. This also means that the place fills up quickly and can be chaotic when busy. Overall, the atmosphere and seating is cozy and casual. A great location for couples, singles, or families alike.

Grover’s Bar and Grill is so well known that it has even been featured on the Food Network’s hit television series, Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives!

The Food at Grover’s Bar and Grill

The food at Grover’s bar and grill is reminiscent of other privately owned burger joints that you may have been to. Although, they do have a few items that set them apart. These dishes are likely the reason for their feature on Triple D.

Their ​burgers​ are the main attraction for most people to eat at Grover’s. They call them ”groverburgers” as they are some of the largest burgers you can get in any restaurant. They are made in 12-ounce Angus beef patties. You can have the burger made in several ways including swiss, bleu, bacon, and an assortment of cheese and topping combinations.

Other burger options offered at Grover’s Bar and Grill include:

  • The Bruiser- a black and blue burger with grilled onions
  • The Cattleman Burger- bacon and cheeseburger with barbecue sauce
  • The Hangover- this isn’t a burger but it is a steak and cheese sandwich topped with fried onions.

If you’re not in the mood for a burger then there are plenty of other menu options to choose from. For example, maybe you would rather enjoy a nice ​salad​. They have quite a few salad options which include specialty salads such as their roverburger salad as well as basic salads such as a grilled chicken salad.


If you do decide to have a salad then you may want to pair it with the famous ​Cheeseburger soup​! No matter who you ask you will only ever hear good things about the cheeseburger soup at Grover’s.
I mentioned The Hangover sandwich already, but they have an extensive list of ​sandwich options aside from this one. These options include:

  • Cheeseburger club
  • Turkey club
  • The Cattleman Chicken Sandwich
  • Cajun chicken melt with fried onions and melted swiss cheese Finally, they have a section of the menu known as The Grease Pit. This is the section of the menu where you can find ​fried foods ​that are typical of a bar and grill. These foods include:
  • Shrimp basket
  • Chicken wings
  • Calamari
  • Crab cakes

My final recommendation of Grover’s Bar and Grill

My parents had raved about Grover’s Bar and Grill for so long that they brought me here for my birthday dinner a couple of years ago. I was eight months pregnant with my son at the time and I made sure to order a burger. I was anticipating a meal that I would never forget! I found the burger mammoth-sized which was really the only thing that lived up to the hype. I found the patty was under seasoned and ultimately a letdown.

The restaurant itself seems taken care of and clean. I believe that I would give it a second chance but I would not be ordering from the burger menu. I am excited to experience the cheeseburger soup, someday and hope that by trying a different meal that I may have a better outlook on this otherwise popular burger joint.
