    Had an ok time wouldn't say it was great. The servers are always nice and friendly. I noticed their were two large parties so it was pretty loud and explains the foods lack of "tlc". The guy who brought our food over went to the wrong table and had to be redirected by one of the servers. Our drinks took 15-20 mins to come from the bar. The server did apologize for the wait and said they should be coming up soon. We still waited I would say an additional 10 mins after that. I would suggest that management staff the proper amount of people when you know you are going to be busy.

    Stumbled onto this through an OpenTable search as other choices we looked to were booked. So glad we found it and will definitely return. The pretzel/crab/brie appetizer was phenomenal. Soy skirt steak was tender and full of flavor; coconut shrimp were delicious. Everything was delicious. Decent atmosphere - not fine dining but a step above casual. Very good service. Keep up the good work!

    We went to George Martin's Grillfire to celebrate my parents anniversary. The service was very good and the waiter made sure to check back with us often. When we ordered dinner they were out of the ribs, but the pot roast was just as good. We also ordered the grilled shrimp and swordfish. They both tasted very good although they were out the sweet potato hash. They even provide something special in the way of dessert for the special occasion. I would go there again for dinner.

    I met a small group of ladies here for brunch. The food was average, but the ambience was really nice. We sat in the lounge which looked like a nice flex space that could accommodate large groups, if necessary. They also had a section with booths for average sized parties. The restaurant was not too busy and our service was great.

    While I'm a frequent diner at this place, I was disappointed with the meal this evening. I had the Country Fried Breast of Chicken and the meal was simply over cooked. The chicken was like rubber and the toasted brussel sprouts were black throughout. I would stick to the skirt steak and meatloaf - these are outstanding choices.

    Great variety and consistently good food. Met a friend for lunch who I wanted to spend time with and Ashley was wonderful allowing us to set the pace. A great server ! We enjoyed our lunch - a delicious chicken Caesar salad and a grilled chicken sandwich that came with sea salted fries. Both meals were presented well and very reasonable for the quality. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone having a business or leisure lunch. Food and service is excellent!

    My husband and I came to Grillfire after I was picked up from the airport. When we arrived I asked if Ms. Angela Anderson was available and if not to tell her that I said hello. It turns out that Ms. Anderson came to our table and talked with us and then a few minutes later we were provided with appetizers that we didn't order (which was a pleasant surprise) and they were quite yummy. The meals also that were ordered were wonderful. Ms. Anderson you did a phenomenal job and everything was very tasty. So once again thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    We enjoyed ourselves, but had to ask three separate times for a wine/cocktail list. The service was slow--it seemed that the server was assigned too many tables. The food was fine, but not spectacular. It's a pretty location, inside a beautiful hotel.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 7/20/2014
    I booked the reservation on Open Table and informed the restaurant that we were celebrating a birthday. There was no mention or action for this before or during our meal. So as we were asked about ordering dessert, I felt I needed to mention it so that something would be done. The waitress made up for it for us and brought a special birthday dessert with candle! The waitress was wonderful. But I wished that the message that I originally wrote online would have been noted by the restaurant and communicated to their staff to begin with. Still a very nice time by all.

    I've been a few times to Grillfire by Arundel Mills. The very last time I went was for my father in law's birthday. Our waiter wasn't great at all. She made several mistakes but wouldn't own up to them. She forgot to put my husband's order in but decided to blame the kitchen. Then she brought us our check before my husband even finished eating. And didn't even ask us if we wanted dessert! We did get to speak with the manager and she was very kind and helpful. The food was just ok. Nothing spectacular. I've had better experiences during the lunch hour.

    Grillfire is not trying to be a five star in downtown Manhattan. However, the service is always good and the food well above average. Rating a restaurant as "Outstanding" should be a rare choice so they received "Very Good". That is not a knock by any means. If you are in the area, it is an excellent choice for lunch or dinner. It is one of my favorites in the area.

    Staff confused with a birthday and anniversary. The staff was having a good time but seemed a bit too much and unprofessional. Especially the amount of money you drop on a dinner meal. Also, other customers were very noisy but to be honest folks are having a good time.....that is why I would say it's not a place for romantic dinning....it would be a good place to have casual dinning, but at that price????? The food: Good steak not worth 34 bucks, dessert was a cheese cake with fruit; it was out of a box cheese cake and fruits must have been triple the price of the steak because it was scarce on the cheese cake. Why call it cheese cake with fruit?

    This was a good central point to meet good friends I haven't seen in a year! We picked it for the compelling menu, easy access off between Baltimore and Annapolis and free parking. We shared the homemade guacamole which was creamy and chunky at the same time. Three of us had wine and our waitress was knowledgeable helping us to select wine for each taste. The portions on the food were filling. We shared both fish and meat dishes. The best item, all agreed was the dessert of Flourless chocolate cake with ganache and caramel sauce topped with ice cream! The least favorite was a side of sugar snap peas virtually raw in bacon fat. Our waitress was great not pressuring us and letting us enjoy the good food and good company.

    we went for my husband's birthday. we ended up sitting in the bar. i was suprised to see the facility allowed women with kids in the bar seating. I had tomato and feta salad with tuna appetizer which were very good. one of our group members had the ribs which he said were dry but everything else was fair. they do not have fireball for such a large bar i was suprised. They also ran out of Titos vodka- a bar should be well stocked. I blame bar mgt for this move. Hostess was very nice.

    This was our second trip to Grillefire and I'm sure there will be a third. The food is very good, the place is a little loud for my taste but not loud enough to prevent conversation. We had one small glitch from the kitchen that our server Jeff and his manager, who's name I didn't catch, rectified quickly. Overall a good experience - again.

    We have dined at Grillfire seven or eight times and have never had a bad experience. For once I didn't order the amazing meatloaf and instead ordered the seafood fettucine alfredo and enjoyed it very much. My wife's seafood appetizer and salad were excellent and the four others in our party were just as pleased with their selections. Two of our party, just out of college, were there for the first time and were only slightly disappointed that the cotton candy machine was not working that night. Love the decor but it was noisier than usual.
