When someone's getting all up in your grill, the best thing to say is "You better step off! The surface temperature of grills can approach 550 degrees Fahrenheit—you shouldn't be standing on that thing!" Leave the grilling to the professionals with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale American fare at Sarna’s Classic Grill.
Fireplaces and chandeliers welcome eaters to Sarna’s warm, inviting confines and extensive menu of fine American fare. Taped-off mouths can commence their ribbon-cutting ceremony with the half-pound, bacon-infused Juicy Lucy burger ($9.99) and balsamic-vinaigrette-drizzled caprese chicken sandwich ($9.99), both served with choice of fries, cottage cheese, slaw, or fruit. Unmask elusive protein to comforting effect with the open-faced meatloaf plate, side-kicked by mashed potatoes and white bread ($12.99). Eclectic entrees include pecan-crusted walleye ($15.99) and a whiskey-marinated 10-ounce sirloin steak ($16.99).
Sarna’s friendly service and family-owned values foster a welcoming, casual atmosphere. The relaxing outdoor patio is peppered with maroon umbrellas for shade, and surrounded by a charming stonewall to repel runaway lawnmowers.
Sarna's Classic Grill
Beyond its bricked entryway, Sarna’s harbors a cornucopia of comfort cuisine, from succulent steak and seafood dishes to home-cooked meals seemingly plucked from Grandma’s stovetop. Smothered in house-made beef gravy, slabs of pot roast temper carnivorous cravings alongside prime rib platters slow roasted in herbs and garlic, which, like an elementary school dance group, may only be served on Friday and Saturday nights. Tuned to local and national sports, a quartet of big screen TVs glint off a full-service bar cast in the lambent glow of the dining room’s flickering fireplaces. Tufted-back booths overlook an outdoor patio, where diners can clink Bloody Marys and enjoy a Sunday brunch as a burbling waterfall trickles to the tune of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. Verdant foliage peeks over the stone wall encircling the courtyard, and in the evenings, a crackling fire pit creates a romantic atmosphere for those sipping on any number of daily specials.
