  • "This is by far and away my favorite spot in Macon. The ambiance has an upscale pub feel and it is always quiet enough to hear each other speak but never a ghostly silence. The menu is solid with everything you could want and the wine & beer list is always changing! Priced reasonably and very seldom disappointing. They also have a private room in the back that is unbelievable and can't be beat for 10-16 ppl. Highly recommended!"

  • "Once you finally find this tucked away gem, it was a great experienece as our intro into the area. The food was outstanding, especially the appitizer specials. The bar slections of beers and wines was outstanding for a restraunt. We will be returning and recommending to others."

  • "Overall fair experience at best. Lounge area at front entry allows cigarette/cigar smoking and everyone must walk through the stench. Decor is outdated, floors were sticky and stained like they had not been cleaned in some time. Overall the place looked, felt and smelled dirty. Suspect that's why they keep the lighting so dim. Waiter was polite but slow. He rambled off a list of "specials" so long I could not keep them straight in my head. Printed "specials" menu would have helped. Food selection and quality was good. Have been here before but not in years. Based on this experience, doubtful that I would go back."

  • "I was recommended to Downtown Grill by a friend because of its food. When I first arrived with my group, we had to walk down a narrow aisle through the bar which was filled with cigar smokers. There was no other way to get to the dining section. For me, an asthma sufferer, it would have been the last time I would even consider attending this restaurant. But I do have to say that the food is outstanding. Most of our group ordered the scallops and fetticini. The scallops were the best that I have ever tasted. If you can get past the cigar cloud that hangs in the bar, you will enjoy the ambience and food in the dining section. I would consider eating there again, but will have to wear a breathing mask!"

  • "The food was good as always but the service was not up to par. Hopefully this can be attributed to a new waitress as opposed to lack of management, training and oversight."

  • "The waitress was wonderful , the bread was hot soft and great . We had a very good appetizer however the steaks were very dry hard hard to chew. There was a slug crawling in the seat where we sitting the waitress tried to pull it off the seat but couldn't (very gross). The waitress look for the manger and could not fine him or her, not good. we did not like that. Over all we spent over 100.00 but it was not worth it."

  • "I took my girlfriend and my brother and his wife here to eat. Our waitress was very good but our food was good once we found something that was not out on the menu. Came back three times to change order because of not having something. Even the fourth top they was out of A1 sauce. No discount for the wait or lengthy wait to get food."

  • "This is one of the gems of Macon, fine dining at its best. They have an extensive special menu with many nice touches. The service is consistently excellent. For our most recent trip, we had a reservation for 9pm for out-of-town guests. The called to say the kitchen closes then but they'd hold it for us. We ended up being considerably later and they held the kitchen open and still provided great service, not rushing us at all. They definitely went above-and-beyond, and the food was amazing as always."
    Dined on 10/14/2013
  • "Our server neglected us a couple of times, i.e. tea refills, condiments. He blamed other orders coming out of the kitchen distracting him. We had to send our steak back to get it cooked properly."

  • "My husband and I met another couple there to take advantage of "Wine Wednesday" and the 1/2 price bottles of wine. The food was really tasty, our server was friendly and knowledgeable and we had a great time. It's a little pricey so it's not someplace we'll go every week or even month, but a great choice for a special occasion."

  • "My wife and I spent our 27 anniversary at your restaurant and it was a little disappointing. In a nutshell, here ya go: service was slow(waiter did apologize), bread was cold(waiter apologized), cheese grits app was great, entrees were just ok, $35 for a small filet in Macon? With tip, bill was $120! I just expected better."

  • "We dine out a lot and I try to research new restaurants thoroughly using reviews. The Downtown Grill had good reviews, but our meal was not good. We generally order a filet or seafood special and decided on filets. Flavor was good, but it was really TOUGH and not cooked as ordered. Both entrees were equally as bad. The other clientel appeard to be regulars and I guess we just picked a bad night, but I personally wouldn't recommend after this experience."
