Home Plate Bar And Grill Houston

One meal had me cheering for Home Plate Grill the rest of the day and thinking of reasons to go back to Ringgold. If I lived closer, I would be a regular customer. As Southern-style restaurants go, Home Plate Grill is playing in the big leagues.

The Home Plate Club The Home Plate Club, accessible by Diamond Box and Field Box Front Season Ticket Holders, is located on the ballpark’s main level and behind home plate, providing great views of the action on the field. The club included a full bar, access to a variety of new concessions options within the space and a glass front for prime viewing. The club will remain open after games, to offer Season Ticket Holders with access to an option to let traffic clear on high-demand games.

You’d think that a bar and grill located across the street from Minute Maid Park would serve up only bar food. While the wings and burgers are the Home Plate’s most requested fares, they’re not stand-outs here. Instead, try the mouthwatering chicken pesto pasta, which arrives swimming in a cream sauce, along with warm bread sticks. The warm spinach salad – “flash sautéed” baby spinach, red peppers and roasted onions, topped with blue cheese crumbles – is a hands-down winner.

A friend and I came to Houston from out of town for a baseball game and were referred here by a local. Either their standards are low or we hit them on a terrible day. Judging by the rating, I go with the former. The food was good, nothing mind blowing but for a greasy burger and fries it was pretty darn good. Server, when she finally noticed us, said there was beer on tap and then came back with bottles. No big deal, but I would have preferred a different beer on tap instead. For being before a game, on a Saturday, there was one server for the whole ground floor. Two more showed later on, but ours was disinterested, didn't check back in on us, and really took away from what could have been a decent experience. Honestly, I would have rather paid out the hind end inside the stadium. If I ever come back to Houston I won't be coming back here.

Several items, according to the menu, are specialties created at Home Plate’s sister restaurant, Choo Choo BBQ and Grill in Chickamauga, Ga. These include the Saturday special, meatloaf, said to be a family recipe, made fresh and topped with ketchup.

Alas, the antiques stores yielded nothing on this venture, but my stop for lunch more than made up for this rare shutout. While poking around the cluster of businesses on Nashville Street, I spied Home Plate Grill and scored one of the best lunches I’ve had in a while.

Home Plate Grill is a single, large open room with rows of tables down the middle and along both side walls. The server station is at one end of the room, the cash register at the other.

The decor is a curious assortment of sports memorabilia — with roller skates, hockey sticks and a Braves jersey — along with black-and-white portraits of Charlie Chaplain and Audrey Hepburn. My table was actually beneath what appeared to be an authentic, five-sided home plate mounted on the wall.

While this bar is convenient to Minute Maid Park, there are way better establishments to visit within walking distance from the park. The drinks are overpriced here and the bar staff mediocre. Also, as a heads up, there is a $15 minimum to open a credit card tab.

To go with my two daily specials, the meatloaf and hashbrown casserole, I ordered green beans, macaroni and cheese and a cornbread muffin. There was only a brief wait before the plate arrived, everything piping hot.

This is probably the worse bar I have ever been too. They have a sign out front flashing “3 dollar beers and 3 dollar shots” yet when you order them they bring you the beer and don't tell you it's not the actual $3 one. They lie. I asked about our bill cause it was so high and the waitress said they where out of the cheep beer so she didn't tell us. We also ordered our food and when she brought it over to us, 45 mins later, she then tells us that they don't have the nachos my girlfriend had ordered. Why wait tell them to tell us? I would have been happier eating at the stadium. Avoid this place. It's cheaper to eat and drink at minuet made park.

The place is filthy, and probably only receives business out of convenience from the ballparks (Why I went, both times). The first floor was full, so we went upstairs, which is horrible for a sports bar. You can't see much of downstairs, there are no TVs, and it was filthy. There was one server, who did okay for how overwhelmed she appeared, but service was slow, because of it. There was also a table that had too much to drink, as they were passed out at the table. Most bars, if they come in like that, will not let them in. If they are drinking there, they need to know when to cut someone off. The friends were stomping around and yelling, clearly also heavily intoxicated. The drinks and food took some time, not as bad as I expected, though. We were only really willing to try it, because we were at a Dynamo game waiting for the line to die down. We didn't have high expectations for the food, but it was not good. Luckily, it didn't get us sick!

I don’t get to Ringgold, Ga., with any regularity, except for the Dixie Highway Yard Sale in June and the occasional trip to prowl through the downtown antiques stores. But Ringgold Feed & Seed Antiques was celebrating its third anniversary last Saturday, so off I went, unconcerned about the torrents of morning rain and the 65-mile round trip from home.
