- Very Impressed...AngelaKFDined on 9/12/2014This was our first time dining at the Downtown Grill. It was a special occasion, my boyfriend's birthday, so we thought we would try it. We were not disappointed at all and will definitely return. The restaurant is very cozy and romantic. It's refreshing to have the adults only atmosphere. The food and service were amazing. We were both already thinking about what we might have next time, but there may be specials, so we can't rule those out. Highly recommended!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great EveningPatBDined on 9/6/2014This is our go-to place for special events. We celebrated my wife's birthday here earlier this year, and did the same for my birthday tonight. Great place for a special dinner, and the food and service never disappoint.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ColdASR1020910Dined on 8/29/2014I live in Macon and I have eaten at Downtown Grill since it first opened. It has always been a great restaurant to eat at. I turned 40 on August 29 and decided to eat here for my birthday and invite 9 other people. All of our food was served cold. I was very disappointed that this happened. I had asked my friends to celebrate with me and they agreed to. I feel really bad for my friends and family that had to pay high dollar (which they agreed to) for cold food.
- Not worth the moneyOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 8/15/2014I would not Return. The service is poor. The food is very average. The meat was ill prepared. The serving sizes were not appropriate. Very disappointed. I will never return.

- Birthday CelebrationHvilledudeDined on 5/5/2014Excellent server and great food. Server was very helpful and knowledgeable about the prep and taste of the foods.

- Always a perfect eveningTReatsDined on 5/3/2014This 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Favorite place ever!kdo23Dined on 4/24/2014I love Downtown Grill! The filet is always cooked perfectly. The side choices are great. The suggested wines are 98% if the time are just what I want.

- perfect before playBethDined on 4/19/2014we very much enjoyed our meal at Downtown Grill. We had tickets to the theater and had plenty of time. The seared tuna appetizer was the best!Special Features:
- Yankees moves southJabbatheHutDined on 3/28/2014Once 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not ImpressedNotimpressedDined on 3/22/2014Overall 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.
- Great timeOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 3/21/2014Downtown grill is a fabulous restaurant and I definitely will be going back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- mixed feelingsmacondinerDined on 3/12/2014I 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Love the AmbienceMomofGroomDined on 2/15/2014Repeat customers...we love the building and the ambience, and always a good selection on menu.Special Features:
- The food was good as alwaysOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 1/25/2014The 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great food and service, butGinaDined on 12/3/2013Great food and service, but the prices have become way too high for us.Special Features:
- The waitress was wonderfulOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 11/23/2013The 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.
- This close to perfectFood4LifeDined on 11/14/2013Although there were problems with the food (out of ordered entree, substitute over cooked), the service given by Jason and Becca was excellent. We enjoyed having cigars in the bar afterward, as well.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wonderful dining experienceRoyRDined on 10/30/2013Great food, atmosphere and service. A must eat for anyone. Romantic and great ambiance.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- bkthdayCHPAGEDined on 10/18/2013I 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food and great servicedaenetDined on 10/14/2013This 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Disappointed DinertmmcentyreDined on 10/3/2013Our 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.Special Features:
- Fun night out with friendsMuffinhedsDined on 9/11/2013My 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- My wife and I spent our 27DissapointedDined on 8/16/2013My 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
