The Penn Grill & Bar in downtown Plymouth is the worst bar in town. It’s an awful place that draws more than its fair share of douchebags.   Based on the behavior I’ve seen and/or heard about, no one there seems to monitor how drunk people get or how they act.

I truly despise that place — at least as a bar, the food’s OK — and look forward to the city finally shutting it down for all the problems its patrons cause.

I think some of the reviews from yelp echo my feelings about this hole:

This place is noisy.  The service is God awful . . .he place is full of loud, obnoxious, young guys looking to start a fight on the weekends.

I hate this place, I hate this place, I hate this place. How many times did I say that? Three? Perfect, because there are three good reasons as to why I hate this place:
1. The clientele- Can we say trashy? Every time I go here this place is nothing but trouble. Even when I don’t go here and I am across the street this place is nothing but trouble. Ever see someone get thrown threw a bars front windows? Go here and you might get that chance…. (yes, I realize this was sometime ago, but still). Trash.

The City of Plymouth Liquor License Committee meeting of January 2010, Administrative Update, page 2, notes the Penn Grill’s history of “a number of police issues in addition to citizen complaints,” and that the City Commission’s investigation revealed that bar “has a pattern of patron conduct which is in violation of the law and/or disturbs the peace, order and tranquility of the neighborhood.”

Why am I talking about this today?  Because the place has a reputation for excessively drunken patrons and lots of fights.  One fight started last evening that I had to stop.  No one working for the bar was able to do anything about it.  Thank God the police were there quickly.

The whole feel of this place is opposite of the rest of our community itself.  In short, the place is bad news.

When we moved to Plymouth a few years back, we gave up cabe TV.  There is a lot of upside to that.  Our time is so much better spent now that we are not constantly planted in front of the tube.

The only real downside for me is that there are a lot of great college football games I can no longer watch at home.  I try to watch every MSU game that is on, but half of them are on one of the cable networks.

The only place I’ve watched games in town is the Box Bar.  I’ve gotten lunch and planted myself in a booth for three hours.  The staff there has been great in accommodating me. I’ve called ahead to see if they could show the game I wanted to watch and they’ve always said yes, making sure the game was on at least one of the two big screens, adjusting the volume, etc.  The food and drink menus are perfect for watching football.  The only “problem” (for lack of a better word) I’ve had there is that it’s sometimes hard to watch an entire game from the booth, especially since they are long and high-backed.

I know a lot of the bars in town have TVs and show games.  Anyone else had good game experiences at other Plymouth bars or restaurants?
