    Overpriced for what you get and a very limited menu. My husbands $39 steak was overcooked and it had a lot of grizzle and fat. The manager did not seem concerned at all, he never even came over to our table. The room in the back is very noisy. Go to Connors or the Melting Pot instead. We will not return. A complete waste of $100! We have gotten much better food from our favorite Mexican restaurant, Las Trojas, for over half the price!

    On November 20th, my wife and I celebrated 20 years of marriage. My desire was to honor her, our achievement of 20 years, and to make the occasion memorable. My overall impression was that each, and every Grille 29 staff member was committed to that same purpose. From the hostess, to the manager, and certainly our server John. We were well attended to, made to feel special. Even though we were one of several couples present, it felt like we were the only couple present that evening. This was truly an outstanding dining experience. The food was delectable, the ambiance delightful, and the service was exquisite.

    I've been to G29 probably a dozen times and it's one of my favorite upscale venues. However the food quality has declined. Grilled oysters were way over salted; seared tuna entree served tuna I suspected was a little old; wasabi paste instead of real wasabi ( c'mon really?) and my $35 filet mignon was medium on the outside and rare on the inside. I usually have dessert but honestly skipped it this time because I wasn't willing to turn a $100 disappointment into a $125 disappointment. Grille 29 : you can do better!

    Having dined here several times throughout the last few years, Grill 29 has yet to disappoint. Every appetizer, entree and dessert I've had has met or exceeded my expectations. Excellent wait staff - very attentive and knowledgable. The specials are always worth consideration as often there are some unique items such as the lobster quesadilla we had. My favorite dish would have to be any of the scallop dishes as well as the Grouper Oscar. The salmon brûlée is also excellent. If there is a downside, I would have to say that the interior of the restaurant hasn't change in quite awhile. Not that it's bad, but it might be time for some updates to change things around a bit.

    So, if I'm totally honest! I purposely made reservations with a note specifically requesting a romantic spot in the restaurant. We arrived early and noticed several open tables. However, our "special" table was not ready. We headed to the bar to have a drink while waiting. Typically, we are bar people anyway and like to interact with the bar tender. On our second drink, we are approached by the hostess to let us know our table is ready. Cool! Well, as it turns out, it is the 6 top table right behind us in the bar area. Really! Why would we move from our now comfortable spot at the bar to less than 10 feet away to sit at a table for 6? I guess requesting a special spot really did not make any difference :)!

    Probably one of the best meals I've ever had which says a lot as I've been to some of the best steakhouses in the country..but none of those could top the Grille 29 filet or Cowboy ribeye. Add in exceptional service, a great beer and wine list and you have a perfect meal - easily the best in Northern Alabama

    I had received several recommendations for taking my wife out to a nice, romantic spot for dinner, and Grille 29 was a common suggestion. Being new to Huntsville, I decided to give it a try. From the moment we walked in the door the staff was courteous and accommodating, and the entire ambiance of the restaurant was perfect. We tried the Calamari, Lobster Bisque, and Potato Crusted Halibut and everything was beyond our expectations. Even after ordering a glass of wine and the Crème Brulee for dessert, I was still pleasantly surprised to see that the bill did not break our budget. Very impressed all around and will definitely be coming back many more times!

    I took my wife here for her birthday. I mentioned that it was her birthday in the reservation notes, but wasn't really expecting anything special. When we got there, they gave her a birthday card signed by the employees, as well as a $10 gift certificate. My wife was so surprised! The food and service was fantastic! We can't wait to come back!

    I have had the pleasure of dining at Grill 29 several times over the past few years. I have never had a bad meal or bad service. The staff is always very nice. The food is always great and the place is always very relaxing. I placed a reservation and said in the notes it was my wedding anniversary and there was a particular table we had sit at a few times before. When we got to the door we were treated to a smiling staff and wished us a happy anniversary. At the table they had all signed a card as well. Those extra touches are what makes a good place even better.

    Based on Tripadvisor reviews, we visited Grille 29; all we could do was gush about the creativity and quality of our meals! Hubby went for the surf and turf, with deliciously sweet scallops and a wonderfully tender filet. His sides were the corn cheese grits (omg!) and creamed spinach. I ordered an evening special: short rib stuffed trout with julienned vegetables and corn/bacon hush puppies. The stuffed trout was just amazing and so inventive. Truly, the entrees could not have been better! Service was fine and consistent. Please try this extraordinary establishment!

    Over 1 hr 15 until we received our cold under cooked steak due to a large party in the restautant that took priority. Our waitress did apologize because the party kept getting our order, but thats really all she said to us. I did pay for our cold food after being underminded by a manager trying to give me ice cream for a consolation prize. We have eaten there several times , but that was the last time.

    We've known about Grille 29 for some time, but we have just put of going since we don't eat out that often. We decided to have our 30th Anniversary dinner there and it was an excellent choice. The food (seafood for both of us) was outstanding, and since it was a Tuesday evening, the restaurant was busy, but not overcrowded. The noise level was such that we were able to have a quiet conversation, which is difficult to do in many popular restaurants these days. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening, and we will keep Grille 29 on our short list of 'dine-out' spots.

    The steak was outstanding - perfectly cooked. I added the "oscar" topping and it was DIVINE. Love love love the cheese grits - they are the best I've ever had. For dessert we had the chocolate peanut butter tower thing and it was delicious. Everything was very high quality. The server (Darryl, I think was his name) was kind and attentive, but not overly so. It was a great evening.

    I took my girlfriend here for date night. It was both of our first time coming. I booked reservations for 8:00 but our booth was in the back by the kitchen which really kills the mood when you got all of that noise and people walking in and out and its very distracting for a restaurant that's so expensive. We could have ate at IHOP for that kind of atmosphere for a whole lot cheaper. We asked to be moved but there were no other booths available so we had to take a table which was not what we wanted but it was better than the kitchen. I ordered the stuffed scallops and she ordered the grouper. The presentation of the food was very nice. The grouper had a great flavor but the scallops were ok at best.

We had 2 sandwiches- a very nice burger and a chicken salad croissant. We opted for fruit and they gave us fresh pineapple still in the husk but cut and separated in a nice design. Very very good.

    My husband & I first dined here in the evening for valentines day. When we were given a gift card to return from a friend we were delighted.There is always something new & interesting to try. The evening meal varies from the lunch menu which I love although it is a little more expensive but you do get what you pay for...excellent food & a great wine list too! On both occasions I have booked in advance so as not to be disappointed as it is a popular restaurant. If you are looking for that some place special that caters way beyond the typical ' Southern Style Food' this is a must.
