Even with their sights set on eternal glory, the well-greaved Achaeans besieging Troy had to break for dinner. Today's Groupon brings bounteous Hellenic fare across the wine-dark sea and straight into your mouth, the skilled breaker of horses: for $17, you get $35 worth of Greek-American cuisine and drinks at Shorewood Bar & Grill in Fridley. This deal is not valid for happy hour.
Shorewood Bar & Grill is a family-owned-and-operated restaurant that serves up classic American favorites alongside Greek recipes from the Nicklow family archives on its lunch and dinner menus. Send a delicious message to taste receivers at mealtime with spanakopita ($7.95) envelopes that prepare buds for incoming gyros sandwiches ($8.95–$9.95) and Black Angus burgers ($8.95–$9.95). Moussaka, gyros, spanakopita, dolmades, and house potatoes unite forces at dinnertime on the combination platter ($19.95) that fights the terrible crime of hunger. Casual comfort foods, such as meatloaf ($11.95–$13.95) and chicken pot pie ($10.95–$12.95), offer laid-back alternatives to debonair dinners of filet mignon ($24.95) and lobster ravioli ($17.95), which inevitably require black-tie napkins. Ordering gourmet sliders ($5.95) from the bar menu fills awkward silences during sips of beer and wine and dinner parties with vow-holding silent monks.
Shorewood Bar & Grill’s full bar and cozy confines create a chill venue for big-band jazz performances and karaoke therapy. Belt out your favorite show tune or pelt your jaw with mouth-watering gyro punches with today’s deal.
Shorewood Bar & Grill
In 1971, brothers Bill, Jim, and Tony Nicklow opened their first restaurant, naming it the Shorewood Inn. The eatery prospered for decades thanks to a clear view of Moore Lake and a collection of Greek recipes handed down through the family. In 2005, though, Jim Nicklow retired, leasing the lakeside property to another restaurant. When the building became available again in 2009, Jim came out of retirement to revitalize the old family business.
At the revamped location, chefs roast gyro meat on a vertical spit for tzatziki-sauced sandwiches or mediterranean pizzas decorated with feta cheese and sun-dried tomatoes. Traditional American favorites, such as barbecue ribs, offer edible comfort to diners on strict teddy-bear-free diets. On Sunday, diners put together custom feasts at a brunch buffet with an omelet station and a bloody-mary bar. Shorewood Bar & Grill dispenses culture in addition to cuisine with a schedule of live music, and an outdoor patio is available for al fresco dining.
