Review: Big Bamboo's Dockside Grill

Celina, Ohio, about 35 miles southwest of Lima, Ohio, is an area destination on account of its 8 mile across lake, Grand Lake St. Mary’s. But it also is home to Big Bamboo’s Dockside Grill, which is on the Northwest corner of the lake, just south of OH 29 on OH 127. Residents can dock their boat and walk the few yards across the street. The view is perfect, and the whole front is open air, with an upstairs, and a bar inside. The grill is always on, and there are daily specials. If pulled pork is the special when you go, you won’t want to miss it, it’s outstanding in flavor, tender and moist. The bourbon chicken is also a great flavorful dish, and the dinner is $9.95, including a side of beans and rice.  The menu is broad: burgers, chicken, seafood, steak.  The help is friendly, and they keep busy, as this is a popular spot, including their share of bikers. The front is especially suited for bike parking, as it is paved.  With two trips to the grill so far, I look forward to returning to try out more of the menu.  Don’t miss this great spot- it would fit well in Miami, but, we’re glad it’s close by in western Ohio!
