The Cheshire Grill is a quaint diner located in the heart of Cheshire Village on the northeast side of Grand Rapids. The feel of the Cheshire Grill has been around for nearly a century, starting with a man by the name of Christopher Naum who opened Sweetland Candy in 1919. John Naum Sr. and Chris Naum then opened the Sweetland Restaurant in 1956 in the exact location that the Cheshire Grill is operating now. After shifting ownership a couple of times and even being closed for a few years, The Cheshire Grill was reopened by Eric and Lori Vorpi in January 2012, and I for one couldn’t be happier!
The Cheshire Grill is about as close as I have ever come to feeling at a true neighborhood diner. The staff at the Cheshire seems to really enjoy what they do and make an effort to greet each customer and make them feel at home when they walk through the door. As for the food, The Cheshire Grill makes some of the best burger’s you will ever try and believe me you will not leave hungry. In fact, the grill has such a large burger selection that they have created a separate burger menu. I was fortunate enough to be the recipient of a “Spinner’s Olive Grin”. This burger comes loaded with sliced green olives, swiss cheese and a homemade olive sauce that did not disappoint. The burger was cooked to perfection and was paired with a large helping of beer battered fries that are sure to end your productivity early on a Friday. So if you find yourself on the northeast side of Grand Rapids and are craving a delicious burger look no further than The Cheshire Grill!
