The Gruff Plates + Pours bringing new flavors to Brandon
“It has been great. The people have really embraced us and the reason we wanted to bring another restaurant into Brandon was to give the people in this growing community another place to eat.”
BRANDON, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - From open-faced turkey sandwiches to goat cheese-covered hamburgers, The Gruff Plates + Pours has made quite the splash since they first opened in Brandon in mid-September.
The restaurant’s marketing director Kenny Bass says he’s been amazed at how the community has supported them already in their first month.
”It has been great. The people have really embraced us and the reason we wanted to bring another restaurant into Brandon was to give the people in this growing community another place to eat,” Marketing Director Kenny Bass said.
The Gruff is owned and operated by the same group that owns both Attic Bar and Grill restaurants in Sioux Falls.
The restaurant prides itself on being unique from the Attic though with its own fun atmosphere and very different menu.
”We didn’t want to just be run-of-the-mill typical, we wanted to make it look cool and inviting and this one we definitely nailed it. It looks fun and it is a vibrant atmosphere,” Bass said.
The Gruff isn’t just about the food though as the bar serves up several unique drinks from around the area.
During the month of October, the restaurant is also giving back through some of its drink sales.
”Every tall Coors Light tap we sell, $.50 of it goes to Sanford breast cancer research,” Bass said.
The Gruff Plates + Pours opens Tuesday-Sunday at 11 a.m.
