Although Cathay Pearl on Route 6 had been a landmark restaurant for years, all good things must come to an end. But when one door closes, another opens. That door is the Gridiron Sports Bar with Brady’s Banquet Room. This is the fourth pub location for the Monte family, who run the three other locations in southeastern MA, and they’ll be doing what they do best: kicked up pub food. Think cheesy pizza, fall-off-the-bone ribs, savory potato skins and hearty sandwiches. Stop by 7-9pm Monday through Wednesday for yummy bites at the right price during happy hour.
Like its name implies, this is where you want to go to meet up with friends and watch the game. It’s got over 30 TVs, plenty of beer on tap and a huge bar area, for parties of virtually any size. They’ve even got Stump! Trivia on Wednesday nights, so bring your smartest friends. 2416 GAR Highway, Swansea. 508-379-6168
