Cameron Bar & Grill reviews from OpenTable diners
  • All in all, this place was
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/31/2013
    All in all, this place was decent. Not quite up to my expectations, but the prices were reasonable and the service was friendly. My coffee mig was never empty. I ordered the portobello cap Benedict. It was supposed to come with curried hollandaise, but was served with regular hollandaise, leaving the dish lacking in flavor. The grits were delicious, the side of fresh fruit was sad. Since restaurants can't serve alcohol before 12 on Sunday the restaurant was quiet when we arrived for our 11am reservation, but quickly picked up as noon approached.

    Not a good experience and a very unapologetic waitress for the many mistakes she made. Food was ok but my husband did not get to eat with the rest of us as his food was brought after all of us had eaten. He asked for a to go box as we were all done and had an event to attend. Waitress still did not listen and brought the food out. He had to ask again for a to go box. We were late to the event but had planned for plenty of leeway.

    I tried the cuban sandwich and grit cake off of the restaurant week menu. They were both good, but I was disappointed that the sandwich did not come with fries. Our wait staff was not very attentive, messed up order and slow to refill drinks. I don't think I will go back.

  • CB&G has become one of a handfull
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 1/1/2013
    CB&G has become one of a handfull of "go to" restaurants, and it's thanks to OpenTable. I'd seen this place hundreds of times but never stopped in. We were looking for a restaurant on New Year's day and found this little gem through OpenTable and we've been regulars ever since. The food is always, always well prepared (try the hanger steak or shrimp & grits!), the music is modern, the service is consistent and the ambiance transitions well from post-game noms to a romantic dinner for two.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    Dear Sir or Madam, We had brunch after the City of Oaks Half Marathon. There were two kids and six adults. When we walked in, exhausted and cold, the table was already set (with water glasses!!) and our waiter (I think his name was Jeff. It was his last day and he passed us off to someone else at the end, a lovely dark haired woman with a terrific smile) had coffee to us within seconds. The service was excellent, the food was incredible (I had huevos rancheros) and it was a wonderful experience. I have been to Cameron Bar and Grill several times and chose it as our post marathon brunch place. As always, it rose to the occasion! Terrific place, thanks for taking such good care of us!!

    Let me preface my comments by describing my credentials. I am a hospitality professional with more than 10 years in the business. I am a classically trained chef holding degrees in Culinary and Hotel/Restaurant Management. My standards are high. That being said, Cameron Bar and Grille is what every restaurant should strive to be. CB&G is about as close to perfect as it gets. The staff is one of the most prefessional I have encountered. The food is fantastic and very reasonably priced for the quality and portions. They do upscale casual with elegance and professionalism. All members of my party wanted to order the same meal again on the same visit! All of us will be raving to all we know about CB&G!

    As always, the visit was exceptional! i got the fabulous pimento cheese, bacon, and fried green tomato sandwich. The pimento cheese is awesome! The opportunity to sit outside, under an umbrella, is so refreshing. I was fortunate to have one of my "regular" servers, Eddie, who is so attentive, with true southern hospitality (even though he went to college up north!) Thank you again for a great dining experience!

    The food was average at best for the price. The staff seemed to be running around like chickens with their heads cut off and this was a weekday. I would never want to experience this place on a weekend. The drinks were made improperly and these were not difficult drinks...Just a disappointment especially for the price!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 6/6/2012
    We were pretty disappointed with our dinner at Cameron Bar & Grill. The portion sizes were larger than average, but the food was definitely more in line with bar vs grill. Which was surprising as the restaurant has a great location and seemed like it would be better than it was. It may be a very good bar food+ place if that is what you are looking for, but it does not come close to places like Porters Tavern or Tribeca. Server was friendly, but pacing was way off (3rd plate served less than half way through the 2nd plate), and it was more bar-like than restaurant service.

    I took Mom there for Mother's Day at lunch. She said her pork chop was one of the best she's ever had. She didn't like her side order (nothing wrong with it, she just didn't make a good choice for her) and I really liked how the waiter brought an alternate (the homemade potato chips) very quickly with no argument; was handled very well.

    After reading other reviews I was somewhat concerned but decided to give it a try and here are the results. One reviewer stated that you don't get enough pita points with the appitizers which is true but the waitness asked if we wanted more before we ran out. Another reviewer state that the waitstaff would not give a recommendation. Our waitress was quick to make a recommendation between three very diverse meals. Overall the food was very good. Service was above average. Ambiance was well above average if you get a view of Cameron Village. Not yet on my favorites list but well work another visit. One person in our party was on weight watchers and the staff was willing and able to determine the correct "point level". I will return.

    Though the food portions are small the fabulous taste more than made up for it for me. We had the Pimento Cheese Dip for the appetizer and it tasted wonderful, but it could have come with more pretzel bread. I had the Cameron Club and it was amazing. My boyfriend had the Waffle and Fried Chicken dinner and he said it was the best waffle he had ever tasted. Unfortunately the desserts were not nearly as good as the entrees, but there were not by any means bad either. Will definitely be going back for their brunch!

    Charlie was great! I had special requests with my Salmon, and he brought everything I asked for. My husband really enjoyed the southwestern chicken soup, spicy but delicious, He ordered the crab dip as well, and brought home what he couldn't finish. Looking forward to trying your key lime pie. Was hoping you would bring back the lobster roll. Had it last summer, but in a wrap instead. Delicious! I have been for lunch with several different groups, and everyone had a wonderful meal. Can't wait to dine outside again!

    Based on the menu Cameron Bar and Grill sounds awesome but it does not live up to the tasty description. Our first hint of trouble was when we asked the server for recommendations. He was hesitant to recommend anything and gave the impression that nothing on the menu was good. We started with crab dip and pickle chip appetizers. The crab dip was watery, slightly cold, and tasted like it was out of a can. The pickle chips were good. The grilled pork chop had no seasoning with bland gravy. The chicken pot pie was more pasty than pie. The meat loaf was good but the spicy overpowered everything. No complaints on the hamburger. Service was good and it is a cool little place. Sadly the food did not live up to our expectations.
