Dicken's Grille & Spirits
For many, Dicken's Grille & Spirits functions as a home away from home. Part of this is credited to the warm, friendly atmosphere, but the food doesn't hurt either. Timeless recipes and a commitment to tastiness informs every dish, from the bacon-wrapped water chestnut appetizers to the melty, saucy cheeseburgers to the golden, fried shrimp dinners. Accompanying the food is a drink menu that features bloody marys and over 20 local craft beers. With more than a few high-def TVs peppering the dining room, Dicken's probably offers more game-watching opportunities than a personal living room, but the spot is ultimately a destination for casual hangouts. And with weekly events such as Friday fish frys, karaoke, and trivia, Dicken's is basically a laid-back, ongoing house party with more organized hosts.
