    We had a 12 o'clock reservation and were told we had to wait for a table. When we were seated we were told it was because someone was a no show. Not really sure what the point of the reservation was. While we waited we did sit at the bar and had a VERY generously poured mimosa! Very tasty! The restaurant wasn't too busy so the noise level was perfect. We were trying to avoid huge crowds that usually come out on special occasions (we were celebrating Mother's Day.) It was a very intimate setting which was quite enjoyable. The brunch was really good. A lot smaller than what we were accustomed to but definitely a good varied selection. Everything we tried was great! Our server was decent. Nothing too impressive.

    Although there's a nice big parking lot next to the restaurant, they do not validate and I had to pay for parking. I did not expect that and had I known would not have parked in the lot or would've gone somewhere else.

    We've been visiting the 4th Street Grill for as long as I can remember. Which is probably however long it's been open. It's one of our solid "nicer" dinners. The bar is good, the ambiance gives off a newspaper/politician vibe (which I find charming in a of 80's sitcom restaurant sort of way), and the food has always been good, to excellent every time we've visited. We like it for quieter family birthday dinners, and they also have a back room that is even a little more private.

    Excellent dining for anyone who has little or no diet restrictions. Tell whomever serve you what you want, how you want it and, in a reasonable amount of time "Shazame!" Your delight is delivered. Those who served us did not unreasonnably interrupt our conversations. This by the way is a biggie for me. We dined on Valentines Day this time, the time before was our 17th marriage Anniversary. Both times we left satisfied and are planning to return. Next Occasion! You bet.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    We made the mistake of going here on Valentine's Day. The restaurant was not prepared for the evening, and seemed very under staffed. It didn't seem that busy, but was certainly full. Everything took a long time, even our drinks. We did not get bread (nor did any other table around us) before our meal because they couldn't make it fast enough? We enjoyed our appetizer (calamari), which turned out to be the best part of the meal. The rest was just mediocre. The ceasar salad was old, hacked up romaine lettuce with too much salad dressing. How is that a $15 salad. A nice restaurant should have something better than Denny's. Our main meals were okay, but not worth the costs of the meal. We skipped dessert and left as soon as we could

    We went to this restaurant for the Dine Downtown week- 3 courses for $30. Everything was very good. The four of us sat in a booth. There was a large crowd but it was not too loud for us to have a nice conversation. All of our food was very good, from the salads to the entrees and desserts. I had a New York steak with peppercorn sauce and it was delicious. Started with calamari which was also quite good. I can definitely recommend this restaurant and we will go back for sure.

    Why can't a good restaurant serve a tender piece of meat? The meal was good, but the steak was tough as shoe leather. The grilled artichoke was good, the green peppercorn sauce was excellent, the wine was great and the apple crisp dessert was wonderful. But the focus of the meal was the steak and that tough piece of meat detracted from the whole experience.

    The waitress was very friendly and nice. However the kitchen was overwhelmed. The time between courses was very long. It seems like management seemed to be cutting corners on staff and servers. I don't think I'll return because I'm unsure if the restaurant can handle it. It's a shame the managers put the kitchen and servers in that position of apologizing for the slowness.

    Our server was excellent. THe dinedowntown $30 3 course meal was adequate. My steak came medium rare although I ordered it rare. The meat itself did not have a lot of flavor; perhaps it was a lower grade of beef. The mashed potatoes were lacking. The grilled artichoke however, was quite good. The chocolate brownie was good but would have been excellent if it were a tad less sweet. The chocolate sauce that was drizzeled on it was not good and should have been left off..

    The food was cooked to perfection and the service was excellent. We never waited for anything. Our beverages were constantly refilled and yet they let us alone to talk. The seating was comfortable and the table ample. We looked at the regular menu and would definitely return. Great place for casual dining.

    It wasn't my first time eating at the 4th St. Grille. I've been happy with my visits up until this last one. I took a co-worker to celebrate her upcoming retirement. I loved that I could reserve a table online at the last minute. Unfortunately, our food was cold. And our waiter was not very attentive. I had to ask for our bill. The total bill came to $27 and some change. All I had was 2 twenty dollar bills and I placed them in the black folder. I had planned on tipping $6. Well the waiter took my money and NEVER came back!!! We waited quite awhile until it became obvious he wasn't coming back. I didn't want to make a scene in front of my co-worker so we left. NOT hAPPY!!

  • Not a "prime" time!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 11/16/2012
    We have had good experiences here in the past; unfortunately, this was not one of them. If prime rib is on special, do yourself a favor and order something else. We ate very early so I probably got the first cut off the roast, and already "medium rare" was the color of concrete. It was a generously thick slice, which only accentuated how dry and chewy it was. I would have sent it back, but we were on a tight schedule. On the plus side, my husband's steak was nicely seasoned, tender and a perfect mid-rare. Mashed potatoes were fine, but green beans, while tasty, were old and/or underblanched. They were not al dente, but just plain tough.

    We enjoyed the food. The steak was fabulous. The pork loin was very good. My 11 year old son loved it. The short ribs was very tasty. Service was excellent. It was kind of quiet in the restaurant , so we got a lot of attention. The decor needs some fixing up. It was a bit dark and old. But the food made up for it.

    Excellent food! We've dined at 4th Street Grille on multiple occasions and have never had a bad meal. This was, however, our first experience there with bad service. Waiter was very inattentive....we waited 45 minutes with menus after ordering our appetizer just to order entrees and there were mostly empty tables! He actually seemed irritated when asked to repeat the specials! Asked if I could substitute veggies for potatoes with my salmon--he said no problem, but then charged extra. I would have appreciated being told there was an extra charge for substitutions. The manager was very accommodating and the busboy was great! The waiter should try to learn a few things about good service from the busboy....

    4th Street Grille is always a reliable dining experience. I took my grandma there for her birthday. She was very happy with her dinner and wants to come back even though she nevers goes downtown for dining. They open at 5:00 on Saturdays so if you want a quiet dining experience, this is a great time to eat. But don't arrive early because the doors are locked.

    This place was totally dead at 6pm on a Friday night. Maybe it's only busy during the week for the gov't lunch crowd. The only thing that stood out was one of their cocktails....Grape Splash. In fact, it was so good that I couldn't stop thinking about it for weeks after and finally called the bar to get the ingredients so I can make it at home. Other than, that I wouldn't go back although the food was decent. There were only about 2 other tables with customers in the whole place and yet I felt rushed by the waitress. Although we wanted to order appetizers/cocktails, it seemed like she wanted to skip that part and just get to letting us order the entrees. If you are looking for a fun, lively place to go on a Friday night, skip this one.

    I had been to this restaurant twice before with a group of 4, 2, and lastly 12. The first two visits were more positive experiences. The service was fine but the food was just average for me. Let's just say that not one of the 12 people that ate there gave me any feedback whatsoever. I ordered the fish and chips and regretted it right after I saw it. The fish looked like a fast food fry and was absolutely tasteless. Fries were just average, nothing special. I did not finish the meal as it was too bland. My co-worker ordered a very nice spinach salad but his black bean soup was delvered cold. it took the waiter about 10-15 minutes to come back to the table to even notice it. My co-worker had time to complete this whole salad.
