Holy Grail Restaurant Review

: This is a glorified sports bar no Cincinnati Reds fan could dismiss. Directly across from Great American Ball Park is this pub where you can belly up to beer taps at tables or have nearly a 360-degree view of games on TV, even if you're missing the real game next door. For pub grub, the execution is surprisingly good. Our favorite is the Goebel's Reuben wonton appetizer, which gives a slight nod to the city's German heritage. It's a crispy wonton packed with corned beef, sauerkraut and Swiss cheese, and drizzled with green onions and Thousand Island dressing. There's traditional ballpark fare, too, like pretzels, pizzas, burgers and Saratoga chips with barbecue sauce. Salads and wraps that are pretty typical tavern food round out the somewhat small menu. But the real draw is the beers you won't find anywhere else---like the Blueberry Grail Ale, a refreshing brew with a handful of blueberries in the bottom of the glass. That could be dessert, too, as Holy Grail doesn't offer any sweet bites.
