The service was decent, and the waiter was friendly. However the food was less than mediocre. The shrimp scampi had hardly any flavor, and the seared tuna was OK but the vegetables were mushy and tasteless and the seaweed side along with the tuna tasted funky. It tasted like it had soap in it. The presentation of the food was not what I would have expected for a $25 meal. It was like the food was just thrown on the plates without any sense of cuisine design.
I mentioned to the waiter that the food was less than adequate when he finally came back to the table to check on us. I don’t think he understood me and walked away saying thank you. I called him back and asked him did you even hear what I said? The food was not great. This is our second time trying the grill and I doubt that we will be back.

I have had a lasagna, the strawberry salad, and this last visit I had the pork ribeye. With each successive food choice it became better and better. I am Of Italian descent and highly recommend the lasagna. The pork ribeye was the best I have ever had and it could be because cranberry reduction.

I got a cancelled reservation email. I went anyway and they were not full at all. Drinks are reasonably priced and my scallops were good. My friends meatloaf however wasn’t good and neither was the brown gravy on top of it.

It is a very nice place with a great menu, great food and good drinks. Only suggestion and reason for the 4 star was the old fashioned I ordered. Might I suggest a single large cube of ice for the drink, instead of crushed ice. Otherwise, everything was great.

Dinner was pretty good this time. However, you shouldn't offer Caesar salad when you don't put garlic in the dressing or have anchovies in the dressing and to share. It's not a caesar salad dressing if it doesn't have garlic and anchovies. Service was as usual excellent.

Although there was nothing significantly bad about our meal, it was just average. I had the grouper special which was a Mediterranean blend with tomatoes, Clamato olives and capers. Would have been better if the grouper was cooked with the items and the olives were diced, but the fish was just bland. Mashed potatoes were bland. Husband had NY Strip that was advertised as 12oz but looked more like 9 oz and had quite a bit of gristle and fat. Flavors again very bland. Prices were what expected for the drive but the flavor just wasn’t there for me.

I arranged for a party of 13 for Saturday, 4/21. Laverne was very helpful throughout the process of the reservation, and was very cordial when I asked for an increase of two from the original eleven. Our orders were placed and within 15-20 minutes delivered to us by multiple servers. The food, as always, was piping hot and delicious. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their entree, from crabcakes to meatloaf, chicken dijon and chicken saltimbocca, to shrimp scampi. Water glasses were refilled regularly and a pitcher brought to the table. My friends thanked me for putting together the group, and we had a great time. But the experience was further enhanced by the professional treatment we got from Jennifer and those who assisted. Also, we requested separate checks - some of us two on one check, and 4-5 individually. It was no problem for Jennifer and as we all checked out, it was smooth and seamless. Thanks to Jennifer and her helpers, and to The Grille for another very positive experience. I have eaten here probably three dozen times...always good. Thank you again!!

The food was okay but the presentation could have been much better. Grouper was swimming in white wine lemon sauce. There was a bunch of uncooked spinach in one corner. My partner had the barrumundi that looked like a glob of balsamic was hastily thrown on it. With the number of restaurants in the FTL area they need to considerably step it up.

Went with. Group of 7 people on a Friday evening. The restaurant was about 2/3 full. Service was horrendous. It took about 15 minutes for our cocktails to arrive and well over an hour for dinner to come most orders were off the specials menu and consisted of sandwiches one order was not. Food was delicious when it came but doubt we will return anytime soon. Very disappointing

Meredith the bartender was great very friendly. Great to see women behind the bar instead of men all the time. Food could be improved .Quality of food. Fish was good shrimp were tough .Escargot tough not enough taste .Most likly the butter you are using plus need better quality escargot. There was not music that night we went on a Monday. Would go back again for drinks I don't know about food. Dining area lighting should be a little dimmer. I was in the food and beverage industry for 30 years from waitress to Bartender ,catering manager ,yacht parties ,weddings etc.

Went there for a traditional Irish meal in honor of St Patrick’s day. Corned beef and cabbage as one of the advertised meals. Service was great, but the food was u acceptable. Corned beef was tough, and cabbage was undercooked. Potatos were good, but just a couple of slices of carrots. For the price I expected much more. Didn’t complain, but won’t be back anytime soon.

Walked in 10 minutes before reservation and got sat immediately. Jen then greeted us, took our drink orders and gave us a few minutes to decide on our entrees. My girlfriend ordered the 12oz NY strip well done with a side salad and a mash potatoes. Mashed potatoes were dry and tasteless, salad had pieces of bad lettuce, she received a medium cooked steak. I ordered the 12oz NY strip also, well done with the Parmesan truffle fries. The truffle fries were burnt and receivers a medium well cooked steak.
Manager came over briefly, not really concerned about the issue and said he’d get our server right over and that he’d give us a dessert. The “newly” cooked steaks came out (the same steaks that we had cut in pieces just thrown on the grill), and they still weren’t cooked well done the second time. My girlfriend received the same mashed potatoes that were soaked in blood from the previously cooked steak.
Needless to say we were very disappointed and over it at this point. We never received our “dessert”.

This is the third time we went and will be the last. The server was pleasant but the wait time seemed to be too long for the food. The portions relative to the pricing is not in line with a
" moderately" priced establishment. Translation for us was way out of line for two people with no alcoholic beverages and one appetizer which was on the minimal portion side of things. Was hoping 3rd time was a charm but it was not

Overall we enjoyed the evening except for the service. The server did not seem engaged and did not listen well when taking the order which caused the order to not come out correctly. We also saw an elderly woman fall off her chair more than once and didn’t see any management come to assist.
