Without sports bars, public affection for athletic teams would manifest itself during impromptu fight-song recitals at the grocery store and as surgically attached foam fingers. Savor the high-fives of a sports emporium and the removable nature of foam fingers with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of burgers, sandwiches, and pizza at Coaches Bar & Grill.
At Coaches Bar & Grill, fans of sports teams and savory cuisine converge to create a spirited environment around a menu loaded with game-time-appropriate grub. Meat masons can brandish the half-pound patty of a coach burger with a choice of bacon, capicola, or ham ($8.49), or opt for a deep-fried chicken breast pirouetting through a spicy sauce to comprise the buffalo-chicken sandwich ($8.49). Put aside a briefcase full of play money or play legal documents to snag a french dip and sink tired tongues into the succulent embrace of roast beef ($4.99–$8.49). Maritime-cuisine-inclined munchers can reel in a pair of fish tacos stuffed with hand battered cod ($8.49), while soup enthusiasts can slurp the homemade soup of the day ($2.99–$3.99) and rattle rival fans by crunching crackers to the tune of "We Will Rock You".
Neatly coordinated sets of tables and booths orbit around a dark wooden bar, and flat-screen TVs perch atop walls to pour various views of the game into thirsty eyes. Outside, guests can sit under umbrellas at picnic tables on the scenic patio while rooting for a favorite team from afar or uprooting trees to use as bigger, better pompons.
Coaches Bar & Grill
The cobbled stonework that comprises Coaches Bar & Grill's exterior serves as an apt metaphor for how hard it can be to turn down items from the roster of burgers, pizza, and sandwiches. This cuisine basks in the glow of flat-screen TVs that stream a steady flow of sports games. As monitors display feats of athleticism, the kitchen staff displays feats of culinary prowess by cooking half-pound patties bedecked with cheese and bacon, along with a mélange of hot subs, sandwiches, and buffalo-chicken pizzas. From behind a dark wooden bar, their bartending counterparts pour beers and cocktails, which they disseminate to far-flung diners by shooting them out of a T-shirt cannon. The team also brings its serving game to the outdoors patio, where umbrellas shade picnic tables granting clear sightlines to several televisions.
