OFF THE GRILL:10 Years of Great Sound and Great Food
OFF THE GRILL is celebrating 10 Years of Great Entertainment, Great sounds, Good Food and Good Service. I am grateful to have been invited to its media launch last September 10, 2013. It is located at 69 Timog Street, Quezon City. The media launch was supposed to start at 5 p.m. but it started at around 7:30 p.m. and I was there before 3 p.m. They ought to give me an early bird prize. Don't you think so, my dear readers? Ha ha ha!
The delay was brought about by the rains and floods plus the traffic in different areas of Metro Manila. It left me with a lot of time to take a lot of snapshots.
OFF THE GRILL began as a simple idea of having a homey, non-intimidating garden set-up complete with mini falls, fish pond and aquarium. 
From the start, they always wanted a place where good people meet,  good food and good live bands playing in the background. The former tenant of the place used to sell roofing tiles. And when the owners visited the place there was a lot of frogs around making noise, according to its Operations Manager Mr. Boojie Sy. 
10 years after, Off the Grill is an established resto bar, getting ready for their next big step -franchise. Yes, siree, Off the Grill is opening its doors for franchising in 2014. But before that, the owners want to expand and open five (5) more branches both in the South like Laguna or Cavite and in the North, such as Dau, Pampanga and Subic, Olongapo, so that more and more people can get to share on the OFF THE GRILL experience. Mr. Sy attributes the resto bar's success to God, media, its efficient staff, its owners and its loyal customers.
Off the Grill caters not only to the night crowd but also caters to birthdays, family dinners, business meetings. It opens at 2:00 p.m. then closes at 3:00 a.m.
Security wise, the management installed 32 CCTVs all over the place. It also offers Free Valet parking ( Tip is optional ), 36 Total Car park slots, 1 guard and 2 bouncers. The events place is huge and can accommodate up to 700 people in one seating. The place has cool air circulating even without air con. It also has a non-smoking room.
Boojie Sy, Operations Manager for OFF THE GRILL, is humbled with the kind of following their resto bar has created, “Looking back, we never thought this will be a hit in the market. The owners just wanted to have a place where everything is cool- music, ambiance, food. I guess it’s that kind of “experience” that has brought us to where we are now. And of which the people or the public comes back for- the OFF THE GRILL experience.”
When we asked why they used frog icons for OFF THE GRILL? Boojie says “ well frogs, because of their unique sound, can definitely attract people. Frogs bring in good luck.”
“As you can see from our logo, the three frogs has one holding a bottle of beer, another one holding a microphone and the other, holding a fried chicken. This is translated to our kind of service: great drinks, live entertainment and good food, respectively.” 
Known for its live entertainment, great ambiance, excellent food, OFF THE GRILL had lots of changes. Changed for the better of course. Off the grill embraced changes. It has new menu set and all time favorite dishes that are consistently delicious. The likes of the following:
Tuna Belly
Grilled Squid (grilled just right)
Spicy Sashimi
Pork Sisig
Crispy Pata
Buffalo Wings 
Bulalo Steak that's just perfect with a bucket of Ice Cold Beer. 

Prices on their menu are reasonable. Just take a look:
