Brann’s Sizzling Steaks and Sports Grille, Grand Rapids

On 28th Street, just east of I 96 as it swings towards Grand Rapids, is Brann’s, a sports bar that is hard to miss. I had noticed it when I went to Gipper’s a few months ago for their brat and beer special. Brann’s looked inviting, so there I went, despite the fact that they added an unneeded “E” on the word “Grill”.

I had the nachos, which is probably no surprise to those who read this blog. My first impression: Looked good, lots of toppings, a little small. I know, I’ve said “a little small” before , but in this case, it was true. About 20% more would have been perfect, but I didn’t walk away from the bar hungry, both because the nachos were a little more filling than I first thought, but also because they had the very attractive $2 20 oz. Rolling Rock on draught. I’m a fan of beer specials like I’m a fan of nachos, so I was very happy with that one.

Back to the nachos. The beef was almost like chili, and it tasted alright – like you would expect chili to taste. There were large chunks of vegetables, including onions, so watch out – spouses may disapprove of you eating those. So I can’t complain about the generosity of the toppings – meat, cheese, and veggies were all in abundance.

As for its sports bar credentials – excellent. There were TVs nearly everywhere, service was good, and the night I went, they were passing out Budweiser gear. I left my bottle cozy there because, honestly, I don’t want yet another beer cozy. But booze, food, and free stuff is a very good combination.

  1. I’m waiting for you to find the ULTIMATE nacho’s. Once you post the world’s greatest nacho’s, I’m going. But I’m more of a chix nacho’s kind of gal.
