A word from Rye Grill and Bar
The Rye Grill and Bar reopened to large crowds in January 2009 after a major renovation that boasts four separate dining rooms, fireplaces and a front porch. Long-time patrons will be relieved to know that it's still the casual neighborhood spot they've always loved. The Grill offers the same friendly service and menu favorites that made it a crowd pleaser for fifteen years, from it's fried calamari, Cajun chicken quesadillas and 4-layer dip to its salads, pizzas, sandwiches, sliders and burgers. Popular entrees include the Rye Grill's signature farfalle with hot Italian sausage, pan roasted filet mignon, pot chicken and fish selections. Guests may have drinks and appetizers in its lively mahogany bar room on the first floor or enjoy a bit more quiet at the nautical themed bar upstairs. Dining room options accommodate all for, dinner and private parties. Valet parking is available at lunch during the week.

    Rye Grill and Bar did a great job handling a group of 8. Won't take the time to list out everything that everyone had, but we had appetizers (crab cakes, french onion soup) and steak (filet and sirloin) as well as seafood (scallops) and a seafood salad special. Everyone was happy with their meals and the service was excellent.

    For the second time in 3 days we ordered an appetizer in a restaurant that arrived AFTER our main courses. The server offered to buy us a round of drinks to compensate then did not take them off the bill, huh??? Food was fine, but this sort of thing should not happen. Wouldn't race back.

    We went there for a department lunch and were very happy with the food and service. There are two floors - we were upstairs in a private room - and it wasn't cramped. The room was lined with windows and you didn't hear any noise from the rest of the floor. Great selections between salads, sandwiches, grill items - it was a great first experience. We will definitely be back again. The place was very pretty, clean and the service we experience was excellent. Enjoy this place, everyone!

    Have had many private parties here....you never disappoint!! Celebrated my Mom's 8th birthday on Friday and it was excellent from start to finish. The Farfale dish with spinach and sausage in pink cream sauce was amazing, the filet mignon and NY gorgonzola were like butter!! What a wonderful night for celebrating mom. Thank you all!!

    Husband surprised me for my birthday by inviting friends to join us. The 7 of us were very happy with everything. Food was great - David, our waiter was fully accommodating, even though very busy on a Saturday night, and surprised me with complimentary dessert. This is one of our favorite places. Our only qualification is that you have to expect it to be noisy, as everyone here seems to have a good time.

    We often eat at Rye Grill. They have a nice varied menu so everyone can find something they want. Unfortunately the noise level on a Saturday night is deafening! We thought it might be better to sit upstairs, but, no, it was so loud you had to shout to be heard.

    The Rye Grill and Bar is next to the train station and has plenty of parking. The building is very attractive and the interior is charming. There are booths and tables. The menu is typical American lunch fare. We had sliders and fried grouper sandwiches. Both were very good. The service is excellent. We were there on a Sunday at noon. There were many families and several parties happening. The noise level was fine considering how many activities were going on. I would recommend the Rye Grill and Bar to friends and will return.

    This has been our "go/to" restaurant for a casual meal for a number of years. The food is usually excellent. On this occasion the service was excellent. My husband ordered the special cowboy steak which was delicious and perfectly cooked. I ordered the petite filet mignon sandwich which I've had before and usually is very good. This time, however it was tough with some veins in it, making it difficult to eat. Needless to say I was disappointed.

The people that work here are friendly and really good at their jobs. It's just a nice spot for lunch or dinner with something on the menu for everyone. Pearl does restaurants right at all of their establishments.

    Rye Grill has always been my go-to place. This time for a working dinner. We ate outside ( less noisy ). My "usual" salmon club dinner was perfectly cooked, with attentive service. Great that they allow many changes to how the food is prepared. We were able to linger, not feeling rushed. I appreciate that someone can eat lightly or order full dinner. I've used the upstairs party room for several celebrations with great success. Rye Grill appeals to all ages for so many reasons - it can be noisy & has a very lively bar. They are always welcoming!

    Obviously very popular and the food is good, but don't go if you want to hear people at your table. Not at all a good place for elderly or people with hearing aids. We had to shout the whole time. Many restaurants are noisy but because of the size, openness and hard wood floors - this place is worse than many in that regard.

    Friends from out of town were very impressed. Food, service and setting all pleasant. Until a surprise birthday party (about 20 young women) was seated next to us, the noise was fine. In nicer weather the porch would have been a nice setting, but we still enjoyed the window seats we were given.

    Once again the Rye Grill disappoints and embarrasses. I don't understand why it's so hard to get good service help. Surly waitress. Either she or the kitchen messed up the substitute-broccoli-for-fries order (which of course is an additional charge). Meal was over before the broccoli came out. At least she had the common sense to waive the additional charge. Bottom line: the place prices for perfection but rarely delivers. Such a disappointment.

    Rye Grill and Bar was a crowd-pleaser. We brought a party of 9, in 3 generations, and everyone was able to find something they liked. The menu is diverse, from sliders and pizza to more "elegant" entrees, and the prices were reasonable. Our server was friendly, accommodating and on top of things without hovering. The atmosphere on a summer Wednesday evening was upbeat without being too noisy. Some people were dining out on the porch, which isn't exactly scenic, right on a parking lot, but it's fun to watch the trains go by. Parking is mostly metered, which is a minor inconvenience, because the restaurant, located in a large, historic house, is basically at the Rye train station. This was a great choice for our family gathering.

    We always enjoy Rye Bar & Grill. On this night there was a hiccup in the timing of our food (salads arrived with entrees), but it was not a big deal as we were not in a hurry. We assumed it was because new waitstaff was being trained at our table. We ended up having the salad taken off our our bill. Everything else was fine, food good, the friend we brought enjoyed it and we were comfortable in our booth talking until most others had left.

    Unlike Forrest Gump's box of choclates, you know exactly what you're going to get at Rye G & B. The food is consistently good and one should not expect it to rise to the level of great. This is glorified pub food, done well. Keep your expectations in check and you will not be disappointed.

    We have been to Rye Bar and Grill many times and have loved it, but this time was not good. Service was terrible- we waited forever for our appetizers. The manager brought over my appetizer salad and said "here is your salad without bacon" placing a salad with bacon in front of me and then he ran off before letting me tell him it was wrong. Then my boyfriend asked for no sauce on his fish and they brought sauce. That same manager came over to apologize and told us he would come back and check on us and never did. They also did not take anything off the bill as an apology for messing up each course of our meal. The manager needs some hospitality training!!!

    Every time we've gone to Rye Grill & Bar the food and service have been good. This visit, tables that had sat down & ordered after us were served before us. We continued to ask about our food, we were told it's coming out. Turns out that our waiter had forgotten to put our order in. We were with our kids & had asked if it was going to be a long time & the waiter assured us it wouldn't. When the food finally came an hour after sitting down, it came out plate by plate and the kids got their food last. The food was fine & the manager did the right thing & took $ off, but next time we would appreciate not being lied to. Just tell the truth, apologize & tell us that you forgot to put the order in, we wouldn't have gotten so frustrated.
