Schoolyard Tavern & Grill Restaurant Review

: This comfortable bar and restaurant features a tap up front and tables in a fireplace-outfitted back room. While it doesn’t wow in the food department, it delivers on what you’d expect from the watering hole setting. The food is generally a bargain, as evidenced by the chicken quesadilla, which is big enough to share. As a starter, cozy up to the homey mac ‘n’ cheese bites or Buffalo chicken dip. There's also a selection of sandwiches, along with burgers and massive salads. Before you hit the road, try the baked skillet cookie sundae: a hot chocolate chip cookie topped with vanilla bean ice cream, hot fudge, caramel sauce and whipped cream. Ridiculously cheap daily deals make it popular with the collegiate set.
