    • The Majestic Grille – Weekend Brunch


Amanda calls the downtown Majestic Grille’s weekend fare “an amazing brunch…very reasonable considering the atmosphere. They have a giant movie screen that plays retro black and white cartoons.  They play wonderful old-school blues and every time we go there I feel like I’m in the 1930’s.”
