    Everything I try on the menu is good and portions are plentiful and presentation is very thoughtful. The kids love the flat bread cheese pizza and it's presentation as well as the play dough. We sat outside on their beautifully landscaped patio and it was a very nice atmosphere.

    From the warm welcome when we arrived to the exceptional waitstaff (Brecken and Ian) to the delicious food options we choose, be prepared for a delightful dining experience. We then stayed for Homewood Stories, a free event (tips are welcome at the end of the night) that showcases local Story Tellers. Every 3rd Tuesday of the month, Dr. Karen O'Donnell brings 4-5 storytellers to the Chicago Southland. Grady's serves 1/2 price bottles of wine to accompany their menu and it makes for a great night out for 2 or 10!

    Tried Grady's Grill for a second time and was disappointed after a great first time visit. Food was okay, but on the cold side when served to us. Server was not as attentive as first time visit and rattled off the specials to the point my older in laws couldn't ever understand she spoke so fast. Should adjust to your audience! Not sure I would return. My sushi was hard...not very fresh. Restaurant was very loud

    ChgoSailorVIP
    Dined on 6/7/2014
    We applaude the management of Grady's Grill. On Saturday night, they were busy and our waiter was very involved with a table of 20+. The manager on duty saw that we were waiting a very long time for this waiter to even ask if we wanted a cocktail - so he stepped in and took our drink order. The waiter was still taking the order of the 20+ table when we were ready to order - so the manager once again stepped in and took our order. Very impressed that he would become that 'hands-on' and was so aware of what was happening to individual tables within the restaurant. Nice job!

    I have always left satisfied with my dining experience when visiting Grady's Grille. I am a foodie so I am fussy about where I dine and Grady's is one of my favorite places to meet friends for lunch or dine with the family. The menu has a variety of entree's. I especially like the BBQ quesadilla and the Pasta Diablo. The food is always fresh. It is refreshing going to a great local restaurant that is not a chain.

    My girlfriend and I hadn't seen each other in months. I suggested Grady's. It was my friend's first time there. The food was great and our server was hilarious. We ended up staying until the restaurant closed! Good food + good conversation= great night at Grady's! We'll be back in the summer and sit outside. :)

    We've eaten here several times. I ordered one of the specials - mostoccolli - it was just ok. I would not order it again. I'm typically satisfied with my food choose, but this time was rather boring. It was approaching closing time when my husband asked for a cup of coffee. It was cold! Will return in the future, just not the usual good experience as we're used to at Grady's.

    This cozy little gem is a great place for great food. It feels like an upscale restaurant without the pretentiousness of being one. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. They have drink specials like 1/2 price bottle night or margarita/martini night. For the portion sizes and delicious fresh ingredients its a great price. You have to try the The Cucumber it is AWESOME!

    When I arrived, excellent customer service. I was seated at the time of reservation. My waitress"clark" was fantansitc!!! I really like her energy and passion. When my dish arrived, the Cajun Chicken pasta, I felt like the cook added very little chicken in my dish. When Clark asked if everything was ok, I mentioned to her the dish. She offered to take it back to add some more chicken. I LOVED the fact she was concerned about me! I will go there again and hopefully she will be working. Overall the food was good and customer service was EXCELLENT!!!!!!! A must go and try in my opinion.

    Grady's Grille offers we, the chain-restaurant beleaguered south suburbanites, an oasis of real food. With a beautiful interior that's equally 'hip' as it is inviting, a diverse menu that doesn't stray too-foodie, and a service staff that somehow conveys legitimate care for their customers... my family and I were elated with everything. After a recent menu change, several favorite dishes my family loved were removed. Upon a simple "could I stiil get...." the server and kitchen didn't bat an eye lash over the request. The soup was piping hot. The entrees were well portioned, and presented promptly. Save perhaps for one meager cold spot of cheesecake in my fried cheesecake dessert? 'Twas a perfect meal.

    We were a party of seven so it was a happy evening with old friends. It was a 120 mile round trip for me and my husband, driving from Inverness. The shrimp on a skewer and mango sauce was delicious. To end on a high, we all had dessert and I shared the fried cream cheese with my friend on my left. I would have liked a tad more caramel sauce on the plate as that was a delicious complement to the dessert.
