The 300 Grill, Iron River, 1/3/19 and 2/7/19

The 300 Grill is the restaurant attached to the bowling alley, all owned by the Carignans.  It is a small place with about 3 booths and some assorted sizes of tables.  They serve burgers, pizza, sandwiches and Henny-Penny broasted chicken.  It is extremely casual.  The walls are adorned with framed old photos from people and places in Iron River, Wisconsin.  A window into the kitchen is on one wall and the check out counter is at the back.  The tile floor and bare wood tables are set with rolled up flatware and napkin dispensers, along with some fresh flowers.  Service is friendly and efficient.  The food is good but not compelling.  Our first visit was pretty good and it made me want to go back and check out more things.  Maybe if you hunt around the menu you’ll find just the right thing for you but otherwise I think it may be a good place to snack if you’re bowling.

The Perfect Game Burger was 1/3 lb. fresh ground beef  on a brioche bun.  It came with bacon, American cheese, shredded Romaine, slice Roma tomatoes, julienned red onions and pickles.  A side of fries, waffle fries or sweet potato fries are an additional $2.   It was a tasty burger and generously loaded with stuff.  The sweet potato fries were the real surprise.  They were crisp and sweet and very tasty.   The regular French fries were nice and crisp also.

We added a basket of Hand-Battered Onion Rings served with Ranch dressing, which seemed pricey for $8.  They were okay.  Too much batter for the onion and a fairly small portion.  Stick with the fries.

The next trip we tried the Chicken Bacon Club that came with Henny-Penny Broasted chicken breast, bacon, Swiss cheese, avocado, shredded Romaine, sliced Roma tomato and ranch dressing on a brioche bun.  The chicken was a small breast piece that was fried and tasteless.  The sandwich had no zip and left you wanting more. The French fries were greasy and not crisp.  They tasted mostly of oil.

The “5-Bagger” Italian Grinder came with Genoa Salami, Black Forest ham, Pepperoni, Provolone, caramelized onions, sliced Pepperoncini and Mediterranean vinaigrette.  It was a good sized portion and tasted a lot like a pizza.  It had flavor and the meats and cheese blended well on the doughy Italian Hoagie Bun.   The dressing tended toward vinegar/mustard taste which I might herb up a bit, but otherwise it was a good sandwich and well stuffed with ingredients.  The sweet potato fries were again a winner, crisp and sweet on the inside.

Trig’s Smokehouse Smoked Brat was served with julienned red onions and dijon aioli.  It was a nice juicy brat with a smokey flavor on a fresh, soft bun.  It came with chips.

The soup of the day was mushroom.  A bowl of it was a nice sized portion,  had good mushroom flavor, was full of mushroom pieces and had a wonderful consistency.
