Today’s restaurant of choice was MovieGrille on Grant Avenue as I continue to sample Ogden restaurants during the Ogden Restaurant Week event.
There’s a bit of personal nostalgia tied to the MovieGrille theater. When I was a kid I visited the old theater at this location several times with my mom and grandma. Some of the movies I remember seeing here included Little Mermaid and Honey I Shrunk The Kids. That was a long time ago and after several years of being vacant, this theater has undergone an impressive renovation. Great work MovieGrille!
The MovieGrille Food
Honestly my expectations weren’t that great going into this place. It’s not often that you associate good food with movie theaters. I have to say however that I was pleasantly surprised with MovieGrille.
For $8 (Ogden Restaurant Week Special) I got a kick ass dinner salad with delicious blue cheese dressing and a delicious turkey sandwich. This place also offers beer, wine and a nice dining room if you don’t plan on watching a movie while you eat.
I only stayed for lunch so I wasn’t able to check out the theater, but I hear its nice with leather recliners, and tables for your meal. I’m sure I’ll be back soon to check out a show.
