    My sisters and I celebrated their birthdays there for lunch. It is a clean and sleek looking place. The menu was interesting and fun. I had the gourmet grilled cheese with a side salad and it was scrumptious. My sisters had sliders and potato fries. Desserts were also unique and delicious. They did not rush us and we stayed and chatted for quite awhile.

    As we walked into the restaurant, the table next to the door erupted in laughter and the level nearly blew me back out of the door. As we were seated at a tiny table for two near the bathrooms and kitchen we noticed a large group seated next to us. They had just been seated as well. Bad news for us as they were loud and boisterous. So much so that I, at times could not hear my husband speak. They were also pretty rude and made our night very uncomfortable...for that I blame the group. For the noise level, I blame the restaurant. To top it all off, our table had a very cold breeze blowing on our legs. I don't normally mind being cold, but by the end of the dinner I was freezing. The food was excellent so go there but request a booth

    We were to meet friends, but they were hung up in a traffic jam and never made it. Staff was understanding and we proceeded with dinner for two at a table reserved for four: did not appear to be an issue for the restaurant. Nice wine list, plenty of beer selections. We enjoyed the olive and feta as an appetizer, followed by salads and mac and cheese: so yummy and comforting.

    no matter what time we go or what day we go it is always great! Never disappointed. The consistently changing the menu so there is always something new to try. Their creme brulee is amazing no matter what flavor it is, (they change it every day). Whether you live near Sturbridge, MA or are just passing through it is a place to stop in for sure. My personal favorite item is the crazy dates. Enjoy!

    Cedar St Grille, has become a nice local restaurant for Sturbridge. I had great service and meals were served very timely. However, the place has changed a bit. Dress code is jeans. Menu is varied and ordering small plates is the way to go. It is not fine dining, but the food is still good. Bar was busy and loud, and the dining tables are close by, so it was a bit noisy (although I didn't mind that at all).

    Host and wait staff were exceptionally attentive and outgoing. The food was worthy of picture taking and absolutely delicious! Wine list, menu and atmosphere were spot on. Everything works just right in this cozy spot. Unusual appetizers were terrific and the crazy dates are recommended as a must try. Make reservations and go if you are in the area.

    The food was excellent and well prepared. The prices were reasonable and made for a great evening out. We had a reservation an were seated on time. The waitress and other servers were friendly and efficient. I would recommend this place to my friends. The only negative would be that the booth was a little tight but didn't spoil our evening.

    My husband and I tried this restaraunt for our first visit to Sturbridge (for dinner) and we were very pleased. I had the Pamplemousse Rose coctail, which was fabulously tart with a nice sugar rim. We both loved the Calamari. It was delicately fried and the fried pickles and peppers were a nice touch. The scallops, pork, and asparagus were all cooked to perfection and the Jalepeno Mac & Cheese and the parmesan truffle fries were 'to die for'. The service was very friendly and attentive. In fact, I have nothing negative to say; we were very happy (and very full) when we left.

    We are so happy we found this gem of a restaurant. Great, great menu; wonderful drinks, great service, wonderful atmosphere and most important for me almost everything could be made gluten free. They even had gluten free pasta and bread and made their macaroni and cheese gluten free for me. It was some of the best mac and cheese I have ever had. Everything we had was delicious and we went back for a second night to try more items on the menu. Highly recommend. Wish we had this restaurant in our neighborhood.

    We ate at the Cedar Street Grille on Friday, August 15, 2014. We're glad we made a reservation as the restaurant was full. We had not been to this restaurant and the meal was very, very good. From the moment we ordered our cocktails, we know we were in for something special. The salads were delicious, the entrées were cooked to perfection and the desserts top off a wonderful meal. If you are looking for a restaurant with a “little extra” we’d encourage you to try the Cedar Street Grille in Sturbridge, MA. We will be back.

    I just can't get enough of this place.. Great food, great drinks! They still don't realize how much they are going to sell out of their catch of the day. In the last 5 times we have been here they are always out for our 8pm reservation. This time it was a Thursday night and still packed as ever. This time they said they would make us the catch however we wanted it they just couldn't serve it in the preseasoned kabobs. They were out of the pork too so they offered us free desert. It happened to be my birthday so we gladly accepted and the filet was cooked perfect. No matter what happens this place can do no wrong in my eyes. You're still the one!

    On our way to Maine, we needed a dinner spot and chose Cedar Street Grille based on Open Table's diners' recommendations. We were delighted to discover this wonderful eatery and plan to return as soon as we have a reason to head toward Sturbridge again. We live in Greater Hartford, so this is an hour's drive for us, but well worth it. The fried chicken, which my husband ordered, was outstanding, and I plan to order it next time we go even though my fish dish was superb. Vegetables were perfectly cooked, and the entire meal was delicious. The service was excellent--just the right level of attentiveness and privacy--and although we were too satiated to order dessert, I might just have to leave room for it next time we go.

    The menu continues to be interesting and varied, and almost every dish is a great success. Ordering several small plates makes for different delicious experiences. And the desserts are outstanding. If the restaurant served bread (and olive oil), the excellent meal would be even better.

    Our visit to Cedar Street was very good, attentive service and out meals were outstanding. I had never tried the buttermilk fried chicken and rarely order chicken when dining out. It was very good and well worth trying. I sampled a couple of pints of Newburyport Brewing Company beer and found it to be a nice quality microbrew.

    My husband and I took friends out to lunch to celebrate their retirement. We were nicely greeted and seated right away. Our server was terrific and knew the restaurant well. She left us to chat, but knew when to come back for our order. We started with a bottle of the house Cabernet and the shrimp scampi small plate. Both were EXCELLENT! Our Buffalo Chicken wraps, Monte Cristo sandwich and house "BLT" sandwich were all wonderful. It was the perfect place to celebrate for good friends. This restaurant is a new favorite!!

    The food and atmosphere were terrific. Our only complaints were having to wait for 30 minutes after our reservation time to be seated, then waiting another 15 minutes for a server to arrive. The server did not seem very interested and had to be prompted to give the specials. After hearing the server at the table next to ours, we realized that we did not even hear all of the specials. We would still try it again (the food was that good), but hope that the service improves.

    Soup great. Unfortunately there was something in my goats cheese ravioli that was not cheese. Not even a vegetable either. So I could not finish it. The server told us it was not prepared on site so what was it. I dread to think! I am allergic to seafood so that was my worry. Thankfully I was alright but certainly think you should enquire as to how this is made and whether you wish to continue to serve it
