With two locations in Appleton, and the allure of meat slightly seared over an open flame, Cinder’s Charcoal Grill offers the perfect atmosphere for hearty eating.
Apparently, at least according to my searches, Cinder’s is unique, being that I only found two or three spots when Googling the restaurant. If I had to classify the setting, this one residing on Kensington Drive, I’d say the exterior feels a bit corporate,
yet, even if the interior was kind of like an Applebee’s, it had some rustic charm, adding more style than said chain.
It featured a stand alone bar,
an open kitchen, (you can see it in the picture below)
plus plenty of menu choices.
From choice fish to savory sounding specialty burgers and sizeable steaks to interesting sandwiches and appetizers, the menu rendered tough decision making. Oh, the craft beer list had acceptable offerings too, along with some domestics and imports.
When our food arrived, I couldn’t restrain myself from digging in; I had to slow down to capture it on my phone.
Our check registered around sixty dollars, plus a tip. Considering we both had tenderloin steaks with sides, and I can’t forget a bowl of sumptuously spiced chili, the tally was reasonable. And more importantly, with the fairly frigid temps, we had warm food delightfully simmering in our bellies.
We were quite pleased with our visit, and, given the array of tantalizing menu options, will probably make a return trip to Cinder’s Charcoal Grill.
