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!" Today's deal demonstrates a high regard for safety by leaving the grilling to the professionals: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale American fare at Sarna’s Classic Grill, located in Columbia Heights.
Fireplaces and chandeliers welcome eaters to Sarna’s warm, inviting confines and extensive menu of tummy-taming American fare. Taped-off mouths can commence their ribbon-cutting ceremony with the flavor-rich, beer-battered sweet-onion rings ($8) or crispy fried green beans ($8). The half-pound, bacon-infused Juicy Lucy burger ($9) and balsamic vinaigrette-drizzled caprese chicken sandwich ($10) highlight the selection of graspable grub. Unmask elusive protein to comforting effect with the open-faced meatloaf plate, side-kicked by mashed potatoes and white bread ($12). Eclectic entrees include pecan-crusted walleye ($15) and a whiskey-marinated 10-ounce sirloin steak ($17).
Sarna’s friendly service and family-owned values foster a welcoming, casual atmosphere, accentuated further by the relaxing outdoor patio, which is surrounded by a charming stone wall to repel runaway lawnmowers. Treat a jetlagged stomach to Sarna's time-independent Sunday brunch ($13.99 for adults, $7.99 for kids) and pick up some ciabatta french toast, quiche Florentine, and, for an extra $3.50, the potable charm of a classic Bloody Mary.

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.
