The Cherry Creek garden-level spot has been transformed into a cozy, low-slung bar and dining room decorated with vintage photos and prints, rustic light fixtures made from Mason jars and bright pickled vegetables in quart-sized containers. Although the space is below street level, windows on the south and west walls let in a surprising amount of sunlight, giving a warm glow to reclaimed barnwood and weathered tin siding. The space also includes patio tables to enjoy outside dining.

Really, really good grilled and fried chicken. We took an out of town guest and was not disappointed. The kale caesar is excellent and I wish we had ordered extra Mac and Cheese to take home. Try their fresh lemonade!

Very friendly staff. Was out on the front patio and there were a couple intoxicated people...so I think that’s why the noise level was a little high .

Wonderful food and wonderful service. Inside feels a bit like a sports bar, but the outside space is perfect for a Sunday brunch.

Some dishes here are very good, like the fried chicken. Other dishes are mediocre. We got the mediocre dishes this time.

Amazing lunch/brunch last Sunday. We dined on the patio with appropriate social distancing and great service. I was thrilled with my delicious avocado toast, my son swooned over the Nashville chicken and biscuits and gravy. The regular fried chicken was equally as fabulous and we all had a taste. Can not wait to return. Yummm

Great chicken. Nashville style pretty hot (and messy), but tasty. Good service. Nice atmosphere. Probably only negative is drinks are kind of pricey. Cool place.

Drinks arrived 20 minutes after our appetizer. Other than that, everything was good. Our server was super nice but a little spacey. High perhaps?

there are plenty of opinions regarding who has the best fried chicken. In the opinion of our party of 4, hands down it's Grind Kitchen + Watering Hole. Absolutely delicious. We enjoyed everything we ordered. lamb meatballs, fried pickles, brusel sprouts and of course the fried chicken. Everything was great. Our server was really fun too.

We had the Benedicts and it looked like it was just thrown on the plate. They need to up their Benedict game.

Best fried pickles ever! Beer battered and wonderful. Salads were great and the reuben was to die for. Our service was really good as well. The only oddity was the guy walking around kind of talking to himself and saying "Sick." about everything. It was empty when we went Sunday night, but soon filled up and was bustling. My dining companions also liked their key lime pie and bread pudding.

My date did not show up and I was sitting alone having brunch and clearly upset about being ditched. Instead of seeing if I was alright and being friendly, the staff seemed to want to rush me out. Just made me more uncomfortable than I already was.

The fried chicken was excellent, as was all the food we had. The staff were very helpful and friendly, but not intrusive. We enjoyed our evening, and we will return. We’ve recommended it to a number of our friends.

We went for brunch and had the chicken and pancake, cheesy grits and scrambled eggs. It was all cooked to perfection. The bloody and mimosa were also good and the server was friendly funny and very efficient. $50 for two with drinks is a great bargain for the quality of food and service that went with it!

Just ok. Had the fried chicken with champagne. Although the chicken was fine, tender and juicy, the champagne was abysmal and was poured from an old, open bottle. Pretty skanky. Was underwhelmed. The duck appetizer was excellent if you like duck. Overall, Not good enough to warrant the prices.
