Weatherford’s Sports Grill opened last weekend to a crowd of people with large appetites.
Manager Kerri Gilley said the establishment was opened due to the outcry of people asking for a sports-type restaurant.
Weatherford’s did a soft opening last weekend and drew a larger crowd than expected.
Gilley said the crowd showed up thanks to word-of-mouth. She added that since the soft opening business has been good and should only get better as more people learn about the restaurant.
The sport grill offers a family friendly menu along with arcade games and several TVs.
Gilley said the main attraction they are trying to promote is the family environment that includes fun for everyone.
The TVs will come in handy this fall once football season begins and all types of fans show up to watch the games.
Gilley said football games will be shown and it is in the work to get them also on pay-per view.
By the fall, diners will have the option of eating on an outdoor patio that is being added to Weatherford’s, according to Gilley.
Gilley said Weatherford’s is not considered a bar and is emphasizing its family atmosphere. She added that there is a lounge separate from the restaurant.
Weatherford’s has been operating from 2 p.m. until 9 p.m. since opening, but plans to change its hours to 10 a.m. until 9 p.m., according to Gilley. She added that Thursday nights there is a wing special, but only for in-house orders.
The business that Weatherford’s receives ultimately tells its fate.
Gilley said the restaurant is still new and will its future will be dictated by the public.
