Attention Pirates: Fire American Tavern has opened its doors and is ready for you to enjoy a fresh meal prepared by a friendly staff eager to give you a different dining experience.

Before residents think Fire American is another hot spot for college students on Friday nights, Shawn Grazier, manager of the tavern, describes the business as a relaxing environment. “It's a place where people can have a meal and watch a game without feeling like they are in a college dive,” Grazier said.

Fire American Tavern is well-prepared for catching the latest sports games. “We are the only ones downtown with this much capability of showing all the different games,” Grazier said. Customers can pick from the Tavern's 36 flat screens to watch their favorite teams while choosing items from the menu.

One of the popular items is the Ultimate Build-Your-Own Burger. Customers may choose Angus beef, turkey, chicken, shrimp, salmon or New York strip for their meat. Prices range from $7.50 for a 6-ounce Angus burger to $22 for a 12-ounce New York strip steak. Bun choices include ciabatta, pretzel, sub roll, whole wheat or kaiser. After that, customers have a variety of toppings, cheeses and sauces to create their perfect burger. Add a side of house chips, fries or onion rings for $2.99.

What is a tavern without a selection of wings to choose from? Fire American offers 20 different sauces for its wings for no extra charge. Order them bone-in, five for $7, 10 for $9, or, if you really feel like chowing down, 100 for $68. Customers also may order boneless wings, $9 for a half pound or $13 for a pound. Sauces start with the innocent sour cream and cheddar and work their way up the ladder to the fiery Dragon's Breath. Other flavors include honey barbecue, mild Buffalo, ECU gold, fire sauce and mango habanero.

If you need something to wash it all down, the tavern offers 24 different draft beers. If customers don't see their draft of choice, they can make a request to the tavern to have it in stock for their next visit. Fire American Tavern prides itself on having its drafts at a frosty 31 degrees.

Don't think Fire American is out to compete with other bars downtown. “We don't see it as competition,” Grazier said. “We see it as everyone working together to build an uptown area, a place for people to come and enjoy themselves.”

Come and join the official grand opening of Fire American Tavern on Oct. 10 and enjoy some wings, burgers, flat breads, appetizers and drafts while watching your favorite sports team on the flat screens. Fire American Tavern is at 113 E. Fifth St. Call 565-7333 for more information or go to https://www.facebook.com/fireamericantavern/ for reviews and specials.

I moved to Greenville in 1997 and as a poor, struggling college student, my meals consisted of ramen noodles, fast food, pizzas, and bread and water. OK, so that sounds kind of harsh, but you understand the food dilemma that attaches itself to college students.
