Gamaroff’s Bar And Grill (Hallandale Beach)
I gotta tell you, some of you guys really know your stuff…
Following up on several readers’ recommendations–last week, I checked out Gamaroff’s Bar And Grill in Hallandale. Do you know what a “homerun” is? Well–Gamaroff’s is a HOMERUN!!
For our purposes, let’s call– Gamaroff’s a “sports bar”—flat screen tvs, full bar (of course), indoor/outdoor patio seating, sports bar ‘friendly” service—now for the kicker, this joint serves delicious, reasonably priced, high quality food. At this stage of the dialogue you can check www.gamaroffs.com for menu/prices/photos.
As I just mentioned, delicious food. A recent dinner had me “trying” onion blossom appetizer ($6.95), bbq beef ribs appetizer ($6.95), 18oz bone-in-ribeye ($14.95), 1/2 southern fried chicken ($8.95), shrimp scampi ($13.95), 16oz prime rib ($13.95), 1/2 roast chicken ($7.95) mac & cheese ($4.95), creamed spinach ($5.95)–for you wiseguys out there, there were 5 in the Jeff Eats’ party–so I was able to “try” a load of stuff.
Now just so you know, the entrees basically-come with nothing–and the sides are served family style.
As I mentioned at the top of this discussion, several of you guys recommended this joint to me. No names, but one reader “rated” the food right-up there with the stuff served by South Florida’s best upscale steakhouses. To be perfectly honest with you, I actually enjoyed the food and vibe better than let’s say 95% of the upscale steak joints that I’ve been to. The steak and prime rib were as good if not better than the stuff hustled by the white table cloth joints- at twice the price. Throw in the fact, that the “help” was pretentiousless (if there is such a word)–and that shorts/tee short ensembles work beautifully here—and that spells homerun in Jeff Eats’ book.
I am telling you, Gamaroff’s is a must-try.
Gamaroff’s is open 11:30am-1am 7 days a week.
