Loved the Dover Sole
Celebrated our daughters 20th birthday. I really enjoyed the table side boning of the Dover sole-it was delicious -they compped a warm chocolate Molten cake which was also enjoyed with superb coffee

Excellent wine selection, my New York strip was beyond generous in proportion. The service was impeccable, so attentive my water glass was never under half full, my wine was frequently refreshed, just sensational service! A little pricy with the wine, I did not understand why some wines were only available in half bottles as opposed to by the glass!? This made my bill higher than wanted.

Rugby Grill remodel equals I-Hop!
the introduction of booths into the dining area and brass ring curtains has hindered the ambience of what was. It is cramped and servers must manipulate very tight spaces. Bring back the old!

Nice Night Out
The Rugby Grille was an place for a high-end night out. The prices are high, but food and the service were excellent. I had the roasted chicken, which came stuffed, and was delicious. The veggies and the dumplings that came with it were very tasty. My boyfriend got the Ahi and was very pleased as well. As silly as it may seem, one of the things we both raved about the most, though, was the rolls in our bread basket. We asked to have the basket re-filled twice! Our waitress, Courtney, was sweet, friendly, and very knowledgeable. Overall, wonderful dining experience.

We have been going to the
We have been going to the Rugby Grille for many years. It was remodeled recently and while the food is very good the room and atmosphere have become far more casual and not nearly as special.

Nice place to meet
Really enjoy the place. Good food, good wine, good service.
Quiet enough to enjoy a conversation with friends.

We took our 94 year old mother to dinner here and the service was amazing, the food was wonderful and the atmosphere was quiet. She tries everything and loved the fried artichoke appetizer and the soup! I loved the beautiful trout and scallops were my husband's favorite. I would go back with friends in a heart beat, recommend it!

food expensive but very good
food expensive but very good - dover sole, while good, was overpriced for the quality. Filet was great.

Excellent all the way around!
If you've ever been to the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham, MI you will know that everything about it is first class. And, that includes the Rugby Grille. Excellent service, beautiful ambiance, beyond quality food. An all around great experience!

Elegant, busy, fabulous food
Food was nearly unforgettable. The wait staff was good. Only one busser was on the ball (an older Indian gentlemen). The main dining room had a large table in the middle set up with about 10 guests which amplified the volume dramatically to their festive gathering, which was not what we expected from this restaurant but, it was not impossible to adjust to. The hallway seating was too breezy for us. The inner dining room was cozy but our table sat on the opposite side of the hostess table and our honored guest felt like she was being looked at by everyone who entered the restaurant and the curtains would not close, offering us privacy. Even with all of this, we still enjoyed the elegant dinner and left happy.

Always Great Food!
The food and the service are always great at this restaurant! This is probably the only place in town that I can count on a consistently great filet, always cooked properly and never having to be sent back. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Enjoyed the Thanksgiving experience at Rugby Grill. Pleasant ambiance (at least the service attendant in our section did not seem to know that he should not want to clear the table of the flatware and all after finishing the 1st and 2nd course out of a 4-course meal). Interesting choices per course. Very manageable food quantity by course. Well prepared and delightful flavors. Nice wine pairings. All in all a nice experience. Restaurant will be on the short list for next year's holiday.
