We Were Only Halfway Pleased – Half Time Sports Bar and Grill


This restaurant is CLOSED

Susan says…

The former Gratzi location at the Town Center mall has been transformed from cozy Italian villa with virtual fireplace to sparsely decorated sports bar with 137 televisions and is now home to Half Time Sports Bar & Grill.  Ok, it might not be exactly 137 because I did not count them, but I know there were a lot.   The “fireplace room” now has a pool table in it.  There was a cardboard stand-up of a NASCAR driver greeting people as they wait for the hostess to walk you to your seat.  Despite all this, the decor was merely ‘okay’ in my opinion.

Guys may feel their website is more than merely’okay’, though, due to effective use of cleavage and fishnet on female “referees”.  If you hit refresh, you can enjoy the intro all over again.  Your beer won’t be delivered to your table by one of those ladies, however, and that’s not the uniform for the servers.  Instead they wear different team shirts.  If you’re looking for scantily clad waitstaff, go to HootersContinue reading

In The Mood For Something New?

The Half-Time Bar & Grill

The Charleston Town Center will be welcoming a new restaurant soon.

The former Gratzi’s location will become The Half-Time Bar & Grill.  As the name suggests, this eatery will feature drinks and lotsa televisions.  Also the owner of Bennigan’s, Rick Rose told the Gazette in February that the menu will feature lunches starting at $5.99 and dinner entrees of steak and pasta, beyond the expected salads, burgers and sandwiches.

The Daily Mail reported last month that the renovation work is on track and the restaurant is scheduled for an April opening.   The decor will feature sports memorabilia and a blue/gold paint scheme.


Greenlee Gourmet Popcorn

Located at 600 D Street in South Charleston, the father/son team of Delbert and Terry Greenlee is serving up popcorn, nuts, and cotton candy. 

Future plans include adding homemade candies, BBQ, and hot dogs to the menu.


The former O’ Kay’s location houses a new establishment these days.  Bruno’s, conveniently located for those visiting the Clay Center, has already opened their doors.

The Fork You crew plans to visit all three of these new businesses in the near future and report back to you.
