A word from The Chapel Grill
Chapel Grill is located in the old First Baptist Church of Naples; a 65 year old landmark. The church, which once rung with the voice of famed evangelist Billy Graham, is being renovated and refashioned into what, will be one of Naples newest dining spots. Chapel Grill will specialize in fresh local seafood and specialty steaks of the highest quality. A full bar, indoor and outdoor seating, private dining rooms, and valet parking are just a few of our offerings. Along with a chorus of sinful cocktails and silky smooth wines served with ceremony be prepared for a dining experience that is simply....Heavenly.

    One of those places that just didn't match quality to price point. Could either drop prices by 33% or increase food innovation and execution by 25%. For example, the lobster and pasta app tasted like the lobster mac n cheese that has appeared on so many kids' menus. Scallops were very nicely prepared. Tuna cut had white sinew, but tasted good. Chapel theme pretty much ends at the building. Need to add a welcome / digestive to open the pallet and give it a chapel related name same for after the meal. While the waterside spots in Naples get away with high prices for mediocre food. The church is not on par with the gulf.

    The quality of food selection is below par. Prime rib just under $40 was chewy and without flavor, garlic mashed potatoes were much like a mouth full of garlic. Restaurant should do better at the prices they charge.

    Great reading menu however, the actual dish you receive is not up to expectations. (i.e.) I ordered a Caesar salad and got two small whole stalks of romaine lettuce, (not torn apart) at a cost of $10 you'd expect something better.

    Our first time at Chapel Grill; food was disappointing and the prices were unreasonable for portion size and quality. Prime rib dinner was served lukewarm; nothing to write home about either with the 3 scallops on a beef marrow bone - strange combination. The dessert, caramel cupcake reminded us of something out of an Entenmann's box and was a bit stale - definitely not worth the money. The only thing we were happy with was the appetizers.

    We have been to Chapel Grill a few times and enjoy it for a special occasion meal. This time we were seated outdoors at a lovely table and on the table was the "Special Bar Menu" featuring burgers etc. We attempted to order from this menu but were told that was only for the "Bar" area. OK, fine, but why was it on our table and every other table in the room? Never got a satisfactory answer from the waiter and didn't want to make an issue because we were with guests. This left some bad feelings and don't know how quickly we will return.

    This place keeps getting better. Very good beet salad, beautifully presented and generously proportioned. Seafood entrees and Caesar salad also very good. Slightly off beaten path (just one block south of busy 5th Ave) but worth seeking out. Indoor and outdoor dining. Nice live music entertainment. Very convenient to Gulfshore Playhouse, perhaps the best live theatre in Naples.

    The food overall is good but there were a couple of hiccups. The dressing for the salad was very sweet for an oil and vinegar combo and the onions on top were sour like they've been sitting and fermenting. Their bread pudding is usually to die for but this time they had overripe bananas on top and a few bits of dried bread in the mix. They're slacking in the summer months for the ones who have to put up with all the snowbirds for more than half the year!

    Having heard such good things about The Chapel Grill restaurant, we decided to try it out when friends came into town. The menu offered a good variety of choices. My wife and I had the perfectly prepared salmon and our friends chose the short ribs which they thoroughly enjoyed. The experience definitely did not disappoint!

    We chose Chapel Grill for dinner after the theater based upon a recommendation from several friends. Overall, the three of us were quite pleased with the food and the service we received. I chose the Snapper with Crab risotto...outstanding! My only complaint: we had checked the drink & food menu on their website prior to booking. They clearly state Happy Hour daily 6 days a week from 4-6. Upon arrival, we are told it does not apply to holidays. The website SHOULD have stated that. A thank you to Marty for the wonderful service we received. He was very attentive and accommodating without being intrusive. Chapel Grill provided a lovely end to a lovely day!

    Was pretty much forced to eat outdoors even though made reservation well in advance. Options to eat indoors were given in a take or leave it informality. Valet personnel very courteous. Receptionists were very unprofessional specifically Shorter, black hair, older lady. An older couple ahead of us was not verbally treated well. Brunch was not up to par to other visits. The other visits were completely different than Easter day service. Will not be going back anytime soon.

    We had reservations and upon arrival, the hostess was very flustered and not friendly. They acted as if we werent on the list. They sat us outside in 90 degree weather with a baby which was very iritating. All of the other tables had their names written and displayed per there reservation except us. This is my 2nd time there. First time everything wasn't good correctly. Emailed manager and received no response. Not returning.

    After I have been wanting to try this place for months, myself and a couple friends decided to give it a whirl. It was very quiet for a 8pm reservation but I will note they werent all that busy, especially for a saturday night. Not sure if this is typically the case but it was pleasant for us. The service was good and friendly and the food was very good. The food wasnt over the top but it was well worth it. The prices are similiar to what you would find in downtown Naples but bottom line, we would go back.

    Chapel Grill has become one of our favorite dining establishments in downtown Naples. We have been there three times since the end of Jan/2013. All three times the food has been fantastic and the service wonderful. Two of our three visits to chapel grill were with our children and grandchildren. They have a wonderful childrens' menu complete with a very fancy dessert included with their meals. The staff is alway very friendly and accommodating. We will return over and over again! We loved sitting on the verandah off the bar....very quiet and great for visiting.

    PMGCVIP
    Dined on 4/20/2014
    My wife and some friends decided to go to Easter dinner together. My wife asked if we could go somewhere nice, but somewhere that had lamb on their Easter menu. I looked on Open Table for somewhere nice, and selected The Chapel Grill. I went to their web site to see what the Easter Menu would be. In addition, I called the restaurant to confirm that they would have Lamb for our 7:30 reservation. By now you know the "rest of the story". The waiter informed us that they had sold out of lamb! While I understand that they could have underestimated the demand for lamb on Easter, I was disappointed that neither the waiter, or the manager even tried to make four disappointed people happy about the situation.
