Happy hour is the main attraction at Gray’s Public House, a new gastropub located in the happening section of Midtown. In addition to the 80 canned craft beers that you can enjoy on any given night, Monday through Friday from 4 to 8 p.m., domestic beer is $3 and imports are available for only $1 more. And for the cocktail lover in all of us, you can have your pick from their specialty cocktails for half off the regular price. The food is quite tasty as well and if you go during happy hour, you can get half off that too.

Gray’s Public House is an industry bar. They take care of their customers like they want to be taken care of. So, what does that mean? Well, that is very simple to explain. It’s all about the quality. Just because a drink is strong doesn’t mean it is good. Here, the drinks are stiff but well balanced; just like we like em’. Plus, all cocktails are made with house-made syrups.

We stopped by for lunch for a quick first look at Gray’s Public House…

The Chicken Tostadas are prepared with tender marinated chicken with an added tangy spicy kick. 

The “Everything Fries” are topped with just about everything! They had us at fried egg.

The salads were great too. If a few candied pecans were added for texture, this salad would be perfection!

And for dessert…the Donut Holes served with honey. They were light, not too sweet, and perfect for sharing.

In the near future, they will be adding daily soups and other vegetarian items to their lunch menu for a fast, easy light lunch. Also, Gray’s offers a daily $5.99 burger special during lunch and on Wednesday nights a $12.99 “Steak Night” which includes loaded mashed potatoes and a cocktail. And last but not least, we can’t forget about the DJ’s that are spinning on the turn tables each Friday and Saturday night.
