Rumor has it that the same tattooed chick that people were complaining about at wings n rings in the original thread is behind the bar here. Not a good sign, IMO.

Just left the Sports bar where we had lunch.  Fabulous.....  Had the fish and the steak hoagy.  Fish flavorable and done.  Steak hoagy with mushroom sauce was dead on....   Both were huge and reasonably priced.  Got an a small order of the onion rings - we both ate on them and wound up leaving 2 on the plate - only because if we ate anything else we would have been sick.  Highly recommend....

Ate there today. Prices were ok. Wings were ok. I like the look and feel of the place. Would have liked to have seen something really unique that will keep people coming back and new people coming form out of the area to try it. There's a place in Eaton called Jells that really has that figured out. Overall, the service was good and the atmosphere was fine.

We went for dinner and beer after watching Bengals. I had chicken parm sandwich---very good---nice thick piece of breaded fried chicken and very tender. Served with "clubhouse chips". My husband had the rueben and chips. He liked his sandwich--it was very thick---maybe more sauce, but he liked it anyway.
 
The chips were kind of seasoned and didn't do much for me. I would get fries or onion rings next time. Lots and lots of employees. And beer was cold!!ClapClap
 
We will definitely go again. Quite busy but good service.

We went on Sunday for lunch with some friends and tried a few items.  The fried pickles were the best I've ever had.  Wings were pretty good, could have have saucier, but were cooked well.  Burgers were great.  My husband is a big fan of peanut butter burgers so he was in heaven that it was on the menu!
 
We were impressed by the interior and look forward to having a dine in sports bar that is so close!

The family and I ate there last night. I got the pot roast sandwich, the wife got grilled chicken salad and kids got the chicken nuggets with fries. Oh yeah we also got the fried pickles.
The pickles were awesome!- the breading is the best around

The pot roast sandwich- unbelievable flavor and not too dry, on sourdough toast I believe

Grilled chicken salad- huge bowl and everything looked fresh

Chicken nuggets- appear to be hand made and delicious

Fries- appear to be fresh cut and are amazing!

Atmosphere is great (different from W&R). They spent a small fortune on TVs. Kid friendly. Nice looking bar (I will review that very soon). Very friendly staff that are easy on the eyes.
I think if they keep it clean, keep the quality food and service, this will be our (Monroe's) version of Putters.

My husband and I ate here on Sunday. We both got wings, which were fine. We loved the fries. The interior is really nice and there is a lot of seating. There is one thing I found a little odd about our experience: We had two waitresses taking care of our table and both were nice enough, but my husband and I had finished eating and just needed a box and our check when one of the ladies came over and said, "We are done for the day and are going to head home. Another waitress will take care of you." I was sort of surprised that they didn't stay long enough to cash us out, considering it would have only been five more minutes. I thought this was a big no-no in the restaurant business.
 
Other than that, we had a good experience and will try the place again.

I ate at Clubhouse Grille yesterday for lunch with my family.

We had the fried pickles, rueben sandwiches, taco salad, cheeseburger & nugget kids meals.

The fries were incredibly greasy, the service was incredibly SLOW.

But the fried pickles were great, the cheeseburgers were good. The taco salad was lacking in the meat department, and both people who got the rueben sandwiches said they were pretty good.

We were informed that this was their "soft opening" and we should be patient with them because the grand opening would give them time to "practice."

I will be patient because I want a good restaurant to succeed....but friendly service is only 50% of the win, you have to have the food out quickly as well.

I'll be back...but I'm giving them a few weeks to improve.

Service was so-so (very busy, so I will give them an edge), food was good, however, my daughter and her boyfriend being followed out by management (who was prepared to write down their license plate number) and accused them of not paying their bill (when it was paid in full by my husband and I) was not so nice.  For that reason, I doubt that we return.

Some of my girlfriends and I went last night.  The service was good.  A little slow but they were very busy and we were busy chatting so we didn't mind the wait.  We ordered appetizers and shared.  We had Buffalo Chicken Dip, Hanky Panky, Nacho's & Fried Pickles.  Everything was delicious and very reasonably priced.  I can't wait to go back again.

Had lunch there today at 12:30. Service was good but they were a little dead at the time since it was before football started.

The soft pretzel bread appetizer wasn't all that soft but was delicious. The wife didn't like her grilled cheese too much. I found the Sticky burger (Cheeseburger + PB) to be very interesting. Pretty good and clever combo but not something amazing I'd want to eat everyday. They've got a wide selection of draft beers from which I had Yuengling. 

I like that it's a more family oriented place than Wings'n'rings and cheaper then the Red Onion. Though their beer menu could use some work. 8 or 9 taps of bud light, miller light, yuengling, mich ultra, bud, Sam Adam's seasonal stuff like that. If they threw a Cincinnati beer on there I'd be much happier and would stop there much more often.

I went with some friends Friday night after work and we tried 4 appetizers and all were very good!  Draft beer was $2.25 for Happy Hour but no Happy Hour specials on other drinks or appetizers.  Service was okay and it may have been the manager that stopped by our table twice to see how everything was.  They seated us at a regular table first and we felt like we were at a kid's table because they sit low so we moved to a high top table which was much better.

I took the hubby there yesterday for a late lunch/early dinner and I had the Hot Ham and Cheese on a Pretzel Bun which was delicious!!  The hubby had a burger and fries and said it was good.  We had potato skins as an appetizer and we only ate 2 out of 4 so they were just okay.  The service was wonderful!

The atmosphere was comfortable and we will definitely be going back! Clap

Stopped in on Friday afternoon. Service was good but not impressed with my BLT. Burnt toast and just tossed topping on bread. One half had tomato and bacon - other half had lettuce no tomato and no bacon. I thought it was also a bit overpriced. Food was decent but can't say I'd make a special stop there again! I do wish them the best!

No you don't believe that at all. You keep making remarks as if you know what I mean or how I mean it. I do wish them the best because it's a business in Monroe. I don't personally [care] what you buy or how you buy it. Why don't you just quit commenting when it comes to what I have to say. You don't care if it's true you just want to be the same [guy] you have always been!
What matter is there to handle exactly?? I wasn't impressed with the presentation of my food. I didn't say OH hell NO stay away from there! It was my experience and I wasn't overly impressed....sort of how I feel about you!Wacko

We went Friday night.  Atmosphere is nice, food was ok and our waiter, could use some help.
 
Bacon Cheesburger was decent. Chips were good
Boneless wings were good. Fries were soggy/old
BLT sandwich not great.  Half cooked bacon on one side and overcooked on the other. (Was told it came from 2 different cooks?)

It appears that depending on the shifts, a lot of people have great experiences and great food while others have mediocre at best of both. Does anyone have a suggestion on what time is the best to go to get both good food and service?

Went this past weekend an was disappointed that they only had one size of beer a 16 oz glass for $2.75 domestic draught. Actually it ended up being around 14oz so when compared to frickers which has 22oz for $2.22 it seemed overpriced. At least that was the last time I was there

Pot roast sandwich was okay but just meat on toast would be nice to have some au jus or maybe some horseradish added, just seemed plain for the price.

They pushed the bill on us pretty quick so we we probably would have stayed a little longer but felt rushed. Then it took 10 minutes or so after I placed out credit card out to have the waitress to pick it up.


Pretzels were good, cheese sauce was decent, had better.

Lets hope that they can have better specials on game days in the future, also keno and buzztime would be nice.

Most likely will return, hopefully somebody is reading from there taking all the suggestions.

Went there yesterday and had the Cheese Whiz on Bologna with Wonder Bread and a bowl of hot dog water soup with bacon bits. Wasn't the best hot dog water I've ever had, but then again, no one could make it like Mom.

For desert we shot Reddy Whip directly from the can, into our mouth and washed it down with strawberry flavored Nesquick.

We will go back again.

We have been twice.  The first time we went was their 2nd night open and the service was a little slow but the food was good.  The chef walked around to see how we liked it.  They were out of some things since they were not expecting the huge rush they had opening night, no big deal.  We had the steak philly, nachos (which they split in half since hubby is a chili nacho guy) and the beef, sausage on rye appetizer.  We went again on Sunday and again the food was good.  The service was a little faster and the chef still walked around to see how things were.  He took my suggestion for the sandwich we ordered and added it when we ordered again.  Their steak philly with the beer cheese added is awesome!  We got the taco pizza which we wanted the first night and it was really good!  The nachos again (minus the chili, it has cinamon in it).  My daughter ordered the wings which she liked.  Over all I like the atmosphere, feel like it is more family friendly and the food is good.  And anyone that is open to suggestion will only increase their business. Big smile  We will go back.

We had dinner there on Saturday. The deep fried mushrooms were yummy!! My daughter loved the wings, son loved the steak sandwich. I got a pizza, but it wasn't all that great. The ground beef tasted weird. 
I really do hope this place does well. It'd be awesome if they could copy the menu from Putter's!

If we have the occasion correct, one of the manager's noticed someone leaving, what appeared to be upset in a hurry.  It was our intent to correct what might have been wrong.  We did not write down any license plates.  We were just attemping to correct what appeared to be someone mad.  We are a family run business and you will see many of us here.  We are truely glad to be in Monroe and we will work hard to earn Monroe's and the surrounding communities business.  Any concerns can be addressed to anyone of us at The Clubhouse Sports Grille.  We value your opinion and will work hard to make this a place for everyone.  There are two sides to every story.  We hope you choose to come back and give us a second chance.

The NFL Sunday ticket was suppose to be installed.  Unfortunutly, Direct TV and the NFL will not discount the package for the first year even though the season is half over.  We have ordered the ticket for the 2013 season.  Please hang with us through the growing pains.

kind of odd I thought ..the beer prices are a bit pricey but maybe that will help pay for sunday ticket ,,we will go back .

Da Wifeā„¢ and I went down there for the first time Friday night for dinner. I got the buffalo chicken sammich and she got some boneless wings. It was busy but we didn't have to wait. Waitress was fantastic and the beer was cold but the wait for the food was a wee bit longer than I would have liked - but everything was correct and we got out of there for less than $25.
All-in-all, I'm pretty happy to have another choice in town and we'll definitely be back.
 
Here are a couple suggestions:
1. Get rid of the low-top tables. They just don't feel right...it's hard to explain why; it just feels awkward.
2. I know this isn't exactly doable but I would have definitely picked different carpet...something with a subtle pattern or something. The solid gray is going to look horrible in about a year.
3. Expand the menu. It seems a bit limited to me. (or it could just be the lack of pictures or eye-diversions or something, I dunno.)
4. Do something with the blue cheese dressing. Too "watery."

Husband and I went for first time today (was hoping for a coupon but, oh well).
We thought the food was very good for a sports bar and grill.  We shared a Philly steak sandwich and a Pork tenderloin (fried).  Steak was very tasty and tender - maybe too much bread in the sandwich (speaking as a woman who TRIES to limit at least some carbs and calories - just water for me, thanks) but, hey, you have to have something to hold in all that cheese, steak juice and onions, right???  The pork tenderloin was, in our opinion, exceptional - yummy yum!!

The best news for me is that they will have Trivia network in January!!  YAY!!  No smoke, decent atmosphere,  good food, nice and efficient staff AND NTN!!!  Could I ask for more????

Myself and my girlfriend went in last Saturday; first time for both of us.  We shared appetizers (spinach and artichoke dip w/chips and Potato skins) we didn't eat it all but certainly gave it a good old try Wink

I know this has been mentioned and is being addressed but by golly lighting is a MUST for the entrance road, it's scary, especially on a busy night....  

I will most certainly go back and take my Family so they can enjoy it too!!!   Great place!!!!

I wanted to add that I loved the booths....  I'm not the tallest person in the world and really dislike 'perching' at a table .... Thank you !

Just ate there tonight for the first time and had the Buffalo Chicken sandwich.  It was a huge piece of chicken and was very good, will definitely go back again.

I wanted to add that I loved the booths....  I'm not the tallest person in the world and really dislike 'perching' at a table .... Thank you !

At barely 5' I agree.  The booths (and tables with highback stools) are more comfortable than many B&Gs in this area.  And -  REALLY - believe it or not a comfortable place to enjoy the food is a real plus when you are not an "average"  size person!!

We went last night for dinner.  I had the Ham & Swiss on a Pretzel bun.  It was DELICIOUS!!  Definitely a sandwich you have to eat with a knife and fork.  Next time I will request a real plate instead of the basket with paper liner so cutting the sandwich is easier.  Hubby got the Philly steak sandwich and wasn't too impressed but it wasn't horrible.  The bread was just a little dry and hard.  Overall another great experience!!  Our service was GREAT!  Can't wait to go back again and try something else!  The prices are very reasonable too which will definitely keep us coming back more often.  Our bill for a family of 4 with an appetizer and 2 beers along with 4 dinners was $48.00.  I think that's very reasonable.

Thank you for all of your posts- we do read them. The Lights or lack there of are being addressed. We have made some staff changes to improve your dinning experience. We have also tweaked some of the food to hopefully make all happy- (a difficult task) but one that must happen. So please if you had a so-so experience in the past, do try again. You are the reason we are here!
Go Bengals!! Sunday will be a great day!!

Agree! Great customer service. Great atmosphere. And a great selection of beer!

But for the money, I just don't think the food is worth it. Or even that filling for us fat guys.

So following is a small post with a few more of my thought entitled http://threefatguysreview.wordpress.com/2013/01/16/gordons-last-bite-at-clubhouse-sports-grille" rel="nofollow - Gordon's Last Bite At The Clubhouse Sports Grille .

I went Thursday night with some friends and the owner or manager (not the guy in the picture above) came over and talked to us to get our opinion on a few things.  He was very nice and definitely showed that they are constantly wanting to improve.  They seem to want to be very involved with the community.  I think their prices are VERY reasonable.  I'm really puzzled when I see people say it's overpriced.   I love this place and I hope they continue to be very successful!!!

i have been there 4 maybe 5 times ,,at first things were rough but what I have witnessed is that the owner is always striving to do better ,this place is what Monroe has needed ..
an owner who cares about what his customers think about his establishment is just a huge bonus...kudos..

Check around Gordon, that's fairly priced.

If you find a sub $9 Caesar Salad, full entree size, or sub $9 entrees for that matter let me know! But as far as our experience goes that's the market value now.

Guys, again, I'm not saying $9.00 is in itself expensive, I'm saying the portion was undersized for the money.

Does anyone out there think the portion size on the Cesar Salad at the Clubhouse is in the same ballpark as a similarly priced salad from say... a Panera Bread? I don't think so. 

As a matter of fact, I was at The Square in Middletown this weekend and my friend ordered a Cesar Side salad. I would bet my next meal that her SIDE salad was twice the portion as I've had at the Clubhouse with their regular salad.

I guess there is the chance things have changed there since the Clubhouse has been opened longer. I've only tried the salad twice. But still, I'm quite certain that both times there was not much to it.

We have been in for dinner a couple of times with our two kids.  Food and service both very good.  Our request/complaint is that there are NO vegetables available for kids... to be family friendly in my opinion you have to include something other than fries for a child's side dish... nothing fancy, a side of broccoli or California blend would be enough to make me happy.  Applesauce would also be an option... I'm not looking for health food, just something to balance out the options for kids...
Food for thought :)

judging strictly from your picture I would say it does. 



In fact I can at least tell the chicken was grilled in house as opposed to coming out of a bag like at panera.

to each their own; I don't think we enjoy the same things in a restaurant.  I'm after quality; not quantity.

Did you happen to make a call to Jimmy Dean a few years back?

Well call me a kid then because I would love to have some veggie options. (non fried) A lot of places have broccoli or mixed grilled vegetables.

I think it is a very good idea to have veggies as an option to fries. However I prefer peas, carrots, & corn.

Thank you for the suggestion.  We have kids too, although older now, and we are trying to figure out how to make your suggestion reality in this business enviroment.  Sorry to be the one to break the news, but kids meals are on menu's as a help to the families.  In some cases kids meals are at best a break even.  That said, we understand and applaud your concerns.  We will be working on a menu re-print this spring.  We hoped to use the first 6 months business to help us with that.  We should have a better idea as to the number of kids meals we are dealing with and how to attack it in a cost effective mannor.  Any and all suggestions are helpful as we look to grow our new business in Monroe.

As mentioned in previous posts, we do care and we will listen.  With Spring not far away and a new menu on the horizon for us, The Clubhouse Sports Grille is soliciting our customer's dinner suggestions.  Every Tuesday night starting Tuesday, Feb. 5 we will be hosting "Your Special Night".  From suggestions about dinner specials made by our customers on our Facebook page (The Clubhouse Sports Grille Monroe), we will announce the Tuesday Night Special on the prior Thursday.  These specials will be just what the customer ordered.  Legal note "and all things these days have legal notes", some dinner specials may be out of our realm.  We hope our customers realize the spirit of the offer when making suggestions.  Let the specials begin!  Please visit our Facebook page to submit your ideas.

Clubhouse, you're doing great! Please keep it up, and I know you're trying to satisfy some in the community but please don't get so focused on the few that you shy away from the solid stuff you're doing now. If you just have consistency with your bar/kitchen hours, and good environment everything will work out great for you. We come at least twice per week, and will continue to do so. Thanks!

I think this is a fantastic idea. It show you really want to provide our community with the food it wants and craves! 



One thing I would add is WiFi. For around $3 per day, you could provide every one of your patrons a place to use social media and internet websites to engage their online network. And were is the best place to engage your social network? At coffee places and sports bars. Heck you both could share the $3 because a good, properly placed router could reach both Coffee Beans and Brew and you.

Its as important as having large screen TVs in my opinion.

We were in, again, last week and brought friends with us.  We really like the food, service was a tad slow (hard to get refills and cups were taken away for refills, leaving nothing to drink while eating), BUT . . . the food arrived BEFORE the appetizer (fried pickles).  Appetizer not nearly as appetizing when served with dinner.  (No, we did not complain.)  
But, all in all, one of the best places in Monroe to eat, so keep it up!

We will try to clear up the Wi-Fi issue.  We are still working on trying to get Wi-Fi.  We do have Cincinnati Bell Wi-Fi currently.  Because of the slow bandwidth, we are unable to allow our customers use of the Wi-Fi.  Our computer system and more importantly our credit card processing system runs on this.  We cannot afford to crash that system.  We have reached out to many suppliers, but with no luck yet.  Having Wi-Fi is easy; having it stand the test of many users at one time is not so easy.

if you are talking zoomtown that is barely high speed these days and is probably why you would have issues with many users.

you need to get cable internet and you will be able to accommodate more.

also keep in mind those same social media outlets work just fine on the coverage provided by the cell phone.  I would think it's much more important for a coffee shop to have a signal than a bar.

my point is...don't worry people can still instagram pictures of their lunch even if you don't provide wifi.
