Rhino responds

Thank you for reviewing Rhino’s Sports and Spirits in your recent GO section (ref: Rhino charges onto the sports bar scene). As one of the few locally owned sports bars on the east side of town, the owners, Dan, Rich, Rick and I were thrilled to see a review in the Gazette so soon after opening; we appreciate all the free advertising we can get!

Being four retired military guys who also work other full time jobs, we pride ourselves on our unique establishment, our many faithful patrons, our partnership with NYPD pizza, and our bar menu. During the three months since opening, we continue to make daily improvements for the benefit of our customers; as of the first of the year we implemented new kitchen management and a revised menu.

Having a restaurant food critic review our bar menu is akin to having a baseball umpire referee a football game. That said we hope that he will come back and get the real Rhino’s experience - during happy hour, for a big game, or in the evenings. We also suggest he try Rick’s Peel and Eat Shrimp, our best selling item on the menu, or one of the huge sandwiches we serve with seasoned French fries (one customer recently said that "Rhino's Reuben is the best in town”), and there's always the great pizzas from NYPD.

We set out to build the best neighborhood bar on Powers and to offer our patrons something different from the national chain fare, including live entertainment. No question a lot of people read the article about Rhino’s. That evening we enjoyed our best night ever! Thanks again for your support of local business interests.
