Summer blockbusters, rom coms, and family friendly flicks with a side of friend and fancy are Studio Movie Grill's forte. It's a home theater experience writ large. Popcorn isn't as popular as the mix and match appetizers and the house favorites (try the megaplex burger with peppered bacon, sauteed mushrooms, onions, and cheddar and pepperjack cheese) are all ordered by turning on the coaster light given to moviegoers. The comfortable chairs and the servers who go to great lengths to minimize intrusion into your movie watching experience only add to your enjoyment, You can also get high falutin' with the cheese plate (maytag, derby sage, chevre, dried cranberries and apricots, sweet pecans and parmesan crackers), with a wine pairing to boot. Of course, the menu includes a long list of beer and cocktails.
