Steak
The Grill on the Alley was opened in 1984 as a living tribute to the great American grills of yesterday. In time, it has established itself as one of the country's leading restaurants, praised by writers across the country. The menu is classic American grill - prime steaks, fresh seafood, traditional dishes such as chicken pot pie or meatloaf and mashed potatoes, and homemade desserts. Named to The Fine Dining Hall of Fame by Nation's Restaurant News, The Grill is home of the entertainment industry's "power lunch," but is also open for dinner seven days a week.

So disappointed. Our steaks were under-seasoned and had no flavor. Best not to come here for steaks. Further sides were way too small for the cost.

I believe that the recent ownership change will result in an even better The Grill on the Alley. Servers and managers seem very positive with the new ownership.

Lovely restaurant. We loved our waiter Steve, he was friendly, awesome & attentive.
My friends' dinners were great. Mine was awful. I was so excited to see Calves' Livers on the menu. But it was like MUSH...not meat. What a disappointment, I couldn't eat it.
I didn't send it back, because I never do that.

But everything else was great. I'd definitely go again, but I surely wouldn't order the Calves' liver!! I'd stick to the fish dishes.

The food wasn't quite up to par on this most recent visit, but regardless this is one of my favorite places in town - old school in atmosphere, service and menu.

As always, the food and service was excellent. Our waiter, Patricia, was very pleasant and the service was the best. Can't wait to return and try another delicious main course.

Wonderful place… At the age of 55 we will some of the youngest people in the place.

Our server was clearly preoccupied with his regulars… I understand this but our first experience says that we would not go back. Not a bad experience by any means but unless you’re a regular I can’t imagine the service being off the chart

We took my brother at his request for his 80th birthday, we’ve been there in the past under the previous ownership. As soon as we walked in I was asked” I hear it’s someone’s birthday, don’t want to ruin the surprise but I need the name”. Surprise, ruined! Waiter took 3 drink orders but not the 4th, my sister-in-law had to wait until our drinks came. We ordered 2 New York strips,1 large filet & 1 special halibut. The New York’s were not up to other steakhouses. The filet was tough and the halibut was dry. When we said the halibut was dry the waitress specifically said she asked them not to overcook it then walked away. No one should have to tell a chef not to overcook fish! We ordered a hot fudge Sunday thinking that couldn’t be bad but it was. Flavorless ice cream and tasteless fudge. The bill was over close $400. We don’t have any problem spending that and we do many times but when the food is sub par it’s a crime.

A little disappointed in the food quality. Presentation was a little off not quite what I remember the cookery the food was decent but it just seemed like it lacked quality or inspiration. Still a great meal but I believe that for the money you can find much better options. Service was very good the maître d’ and the host were exceptional in the server was good as well but again I feel that the food has become extremely dated.

We are frequent customers of the Grill on the Alley. We generally find that the waiters are quite attentive and that the service is quite good. We were very disappointed with the service at our recent visit. The service provided by our waiter Oscar was not up to The Grill's standards. We ordered a cocktail from him that never came. He never came back to check on us during the meal and we had a difficult time finding someone to refill our water glasses or bring us ketchup. We would return to The Grill only if Oscar was not our waiter.

Wonderful to return to the Grill. Kathy is our server already three times and we enjoy her friendliness and, of course, the food. The oysters, this time, were not great, but the steak tartare, the soft shell crabs and the short ribs, oh, the short ribs. We'll be back! Great cocktails and wine as well. And we love booth 104, our favorite!

Extremely disappointing that at 7:30 PM they were out of two menu items, one of which (white fish) is part of the regular menu. In fairness, they did “make it right” by honoring the white fish price for a more expensive alternative selection.
That the restaurant is transitioning ownership seemed very obvious
