The social distancing at this restaurant was non-existent. The service was terrible from our waitress although other waitresses pitched in when our was obviously too busy inside to work her assigned tables. '

My husband and I liked this restaurant prior to Covid19 and were willing to go again outside to support this establishment. Never again! People were coughing without masks, it was a petrie dish! :(

My only concern was wait staff touching different customers credit cards/money with no indication of hand washing/sanitizing in between.

Reservation was for 8:45 . We were seated at 9:15 . Table was sticky and still dirty . The 3 of us sat at a small dirty table where a couple seated after us sat at a table for about 6 people and the waitress said “ you have the table all to yourselves “ . We asked to move and were able to . The food was disgusting. We have been here two times before and the food was amazing . The wings were uncooked but looked burnt on the outside . My husbands and son’s burgers were both burnt . My steak had no taste to it . Granted they took the wings and kids burger off the total bill but it was horrible. We won’t be returning . Of coursed they closed at 10 . So they started to rush and clean up around 9:45 . If you guys are going to rush . You need to stop taking customers at 8-8:30 . So there’s no need to rush .

Everything were great except one thing... the drunken clams we ordered were very salty. Just wished it wasn’t. My herb roasted Salmon was so delicious!

I need to say that I love Grillestone and plan to return to it once COVID 19 is under control but, with that said, I feel that if you are worried about catching anything avoid Grillestone. We went at 9:00 on a Saturday night thinking it would be slower as this has been the case in other places. My wife and I were greeted by a hostess with no mask who told us that she was calling my cell (she had called once as we entered the parking lot as we were 5 minutes late). Once she saw us we were told that we had to eat and leave by 10:00 as that is when Grillestone will close. We were also told that our table was not ready and we would be placed at the bar or at a high top. We chose the high top. The outside was crammed with people and, being at the high top, we were in the middle of it all. Our hostess took out a paper towel and wiped down the table and said we could eat there, . Many times people passed very closely to my wife and I. Needless to say that we were very uncomfortable. We were given paper menus to order that had clearly been reused by others.
As I ordered and waited for my food I noticed the hostess walk around with her mask at her chin and another waitress (not ours) walk around with the nose exposed out of her mask. The rest of the staff and the manager were masked.

Another issue was the amount of people at tables (6 or more at most tables) and the amount of people being let inside to use the BR without mask (a little boy exited the building with no mask and one patron went in with her hand over her face). We ate quickly and left by 9:50. During our visit we noticed two more big parties enter and, leaving, we saw another couple enter and were taken in. We did not wait around but I would assume they went on serving after 10:00.

All in all, I love Grillestone but I feel I need to post something as this is not about good or bad but safety. I do not blame the people but I do blame the establishment. I ask them to take COVID 19 more seriously.

Overall the the food and service was excellent but since we have to have outside dining the patio should be enclosed because of the rain that we experienced on Saturday. Everyone had to run to their cars for shelter.

I have driven by many times, but have never been in. I then saw it on open table, looking for a place to go out for our first dining experience experience since the pandemic. They have a great outdoor dining space, a diverse large menu that could accommodate any food taste, and great service. Tables are appropriately spaced and wiped down by staff, all wearing masks. Jonathan was our excellent server. It was a great first dining experience after being cooped up for 3 months. The kids can’t wait to return!

Comfort food, imaginative specials and great drink selection too. The owners and everyone who works there really know how to make you feel at home. Did someone say “Cheers”? Go once and you’ll want to return again and again.

It was my birthday week so the ladies had a midweek get together to dine and listen to the band. It was a little disorganized when we first arrived but Ryan and Lisa jumped in and made the night a success. The weeknight food specials were excellent. The amount of fresh food you receive for the price is worth the trip. Everyone enjoyed their drink special - Stoli martini. I will definitely be back for happy hour on the patio.
