Mean owner

Unfortunately I am giving Grendel's den a solid one star after an experience I had there last night, March 13, 2020. I have gone there a number of times and used to love it. Me and a few of my friends decided to brave it last night and get it of the house firing the coronavirus scare. At Grendel's den, the bartender was great, happy that some people were out. A person who consumed a bit too much to drink spilled beer all over her cell phone on the bar. Being a normal, nice person, I grabbed some napkins and handed then to the guy next to me to give to the patron to save her phone. The gentleman next to me put the napkins that weren't used back in the pile that was behind the bar.

Here's why I won't go back. A good five minutes later, some woman came over to the gentleman sitting next to me asking if I was his friend. He said he had just met me during the situation with the person spilling beer all over her cell phone. This woman then proceeded to say, "don't you ever **cking stick your hand behind my bar again. That's not your **cking bar.". Ok, maybe an overreaction on her part. Being not a garbage person I said, "oh well I'm sorry I was just trying to help." "I don't f**king care, don't touch things in my bar." So, in short, apparently this person owns the bar and is really just terrible to people who visit her bar. She doesn't help when people spill beer on their phones and yells at patrons when they do help. Needless to say, if you treat your patrons like garbage, they will share their story where they can. Don't go here, the owner is not nice.

Edit: the bartender and other employees were great, they should get a job at another bar that treats their customers kindly.

Pros: Beer list, Music, Food

Cons: Owner

Good drinks but not much for vegans

Cozy underground atmosphere and decent drinks. Delighted to see a French 75 on the cocktail list. Happy hour has a good deal, 1/2 food with a drink purchase between 2:30-7:30pm. Not much for vegans at all. I had an impossible burger on a bun, but didn't eat the sauce because it looked suspicious. My husband had portobello burger minus all the fixings because they were dairy based. So pretty bland eats. Side dish consisted of potato chip crumbs. Server barely said two words to us and didn't offer much other than a napkin and silverware.

Pros: Great cocktail list, Happy hour deal, Cool atmosphere

Cons: Poor customer service , Not much for vegan diets

great pub,

My brother (very meat-eating) loves Grendel's Den for the atmosphere, 1/2 priced food, and the "Trash-Free" mission of the operation, so he brought me there on the premise that I would love those things too. I did, and was pleased with vegan choices that, although not marked, were clearly explained, and spanned very healthy (salads, quinoa and tofu), to greasy or less than healthy (nachos & burgers). I settled on the quinoa stew with added tofu, and it was delicious, wholesome, and filling, whilst enjoying a local pub vibe. The three kids in our party 11 and under were very happy with their food, and were very welcome. The 1/2 priced food was a special perk.

Pros: vegan pub fare options, great atmosphere, 1/2 priced food 5-7:30 PM, pleases all, kids welcome

Cons: vegan not marked
