MVP Raw Bar & Grill Review

I am a member of the Restaurant.com Review Crew.

 

I’m so blessed to be able to spend time with Lil’ C before she starts pre-K next Fall {isn’t that crazy?!?!} Lucky for me she won’t be in for 5 days, but it will still be an adjustment not having either of my girls at home a few mornings. But for now I’ve got her mostly to myself, especially during the week and we’re soaking up the fun.

Today we had a lunch date at MVP Raw Bar & Grill and while it appeared that this space is more bar than restaurant, I was surprised by the quality and variety of foods they serve. Not only was the food fresh {my tomatoes were ruby red and the pickles were crisp}, but it was a great value too.

Lil’ C’s kids meal was $4.99 for a kids pizza, drink, fruit, and ice cream, and my food {pimento burger, with a side of mac-n-cheese} was a great price and big portions, not to mention with their rewards program each time you check-in {by scanning your card}, you receive a discount and/or points on your card.

Service was decent, our waitress was very sweet, especially with Lil’ C, but I did have to get up to ask her to take our order and also had to request items that came with C’s meal a couple of times, however when I asked her she took care of things promptly. Our first appetizer came out about 13 minutes after ordering which wasn’t bad, and our food came out about 8 minutes after that, so I’d say it was pretty quick, {although there was only 1 table seated when we first got there}.

Doesn’t the food look yummy?!? {and how adorable is my lunch date?!?!}

MVP Raw Bar & Grill Review

Here are a few things I loved about MVP Raw Bar & Grill:

[checklist]

  • Friendly service – both the server and one of the owners were very helpful with questions about the menu
  • Accommodating menu (any menu item is available upon request)
  • Several house-made food items including fried pickles, salad dressings, cole slaw, collard greens & more
  • Rewards program (mentioned above)

[/checklist]

A few things I think could be improved:

[badlist]

  • Volume of music and musical content during dining hours
  • Nicer menus – not a huge deal but Lil’ C had a used kids menu and mine was ripped
  • TV programming selection – I noticed one of the televisions was showing a program that wasn’t really appropriate for Lil’ C, again more a bar than a grill, but for a more family-friendly atmosphere they may want to take that into consideration.

[/badlist]

If you’re looking for your typical kid-friendly restaurant this may not be your first choice, however the staff assured me that families are often seen playing cornhole {see the Southern dictionary for definition of “cornhole”), watching football games on Sundays, and playing Bingo on Tuesday nights.

Overall we had a good experience, I’m excited that I found MVP Raw Bar & Grill on Restaurant.com because of it’s location I may not have found it, and I love that I can share it with you too. If you are local, be sure to try it out for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a night out.

Lil’ C and I are ready to go back and try some more of their house-made food, maybe even breakfast too and bring Miss A and DaddyB with us, I already have my restaurant.com certificate printed out and ready for easy use and savings!!!
