Putter's Tavern and Grill

Review 25 @ Stop 32
Putter’s Tavern and Grill
6576 Cincinnati-Dayton Rd. (Liberty Township)

This is the original location of the namesake that now has two other locations. Make no mistake, sports is the key. A large room for a crowd to play pool, darts, and video games; listen to live entertainment on certain days, and watch events on the 28 monitors and two big screens. Bucky says, “They have to show the Packers on at least one TV!”

Putter’s offers a large menu with many appetizers, sandwiches, and beverages. Different burgers are on the menu and each is available on different bread: white, wheat, rye, baguette, and roll. Great job on this unique feature! The guys went for the Original Putter Burger ($6.75) with chips and pickles. Patrons can substitute fries or onion rings for an additional 99 cents.

Then the downward spiral began. Wolfy couldn’t get medium rare, and then it’s served dry. Freddie’s patty was no where near a half pound, thus somewhere between a quarter and third of a pound. The meat lacked flavor and just plain blah. Since Bucky’s head had visions of seeing Favre-to-Driver touchdown passes, he proclaims the overall sandwich to be better than the meat, which cushions the blow of the lower scores delivered by his compadres.

Go to Putter’s and enjoy the fun atmosphere, but don’t expect a quality burger. Freddie recommends the blackened grouper sandwich and Bucky really likes the fish sandwich (cod served on rye).

Points: 3.5
