Unlike cinematic love scenes, cuisine can be enjoyed in the company of parents without embarrassment. Dodge future moments of uneasiness with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of American fare at The Great American Grille located in the Holiday Inn in Grantville.
The Great American Grille's menu fills vacuous tummies with American fare from around the country. Start esophagus exercises with the award winning chili ($3.50 for a cup, $6 for a bowl) or the soho shrimp ($10), sautéed shrimp relaxing on a mattress of seared polenta and dressed in prosciutto-garlic cream sauce. The tender chicken breast marinates in a Jacuzzi of tequila sauce in the tequila mockingbird chicken ($16), while fresh vegetables sit cozily inside a portabella mushroom in the portabella napoleon ($14). Take a tasty trip by noshing on the Santa Monica ahi tuna ($17) or New York strip steak ($20), or by road tripping in a pumpkin carriage.
The homey eatery, with a stone fireplace and cozy booths, also features a variety of buffet options throughout the week. Feast on a Friday night with the prime rib and seafood buffet, including crab legs, steamed clams, and pirate booty or munch on brunch from the gold standard Sunday brunch.
