    A great lunch at a great venue! The Cobb Salad with Salmon was prepared to perfection. Our waitress, Sara, was most attentive. Will return!

    I took a group of 5 for a business lunch. Our reservation was for 12:15 and our server didn't take our order until 12:40. The restaurant was not busy. Service at the Grille at Deacon Tower is just too slow

    Solid grille/gastropub-style food in a congenial setting for ACC fans, overlooking Wake Forest's attractive football complex. Service was swift, well-informed, and unintrusive. As stadium-area dining goes, this a gem of a find.

    THIS WAS A GOOD PLACE TO HAVE DINNER ON THE GO.PROBLEM ITS JUST OUTSIDE OF HOTEL LOBBY AND FEELS LIKE THAT. ITS NEEDS TO BE REVAMPED,A LITTLE LONG IN TOOTH. FOOD WAS ACCEPTABLE,WAIT STAFF WAS ATTENTIVE AND HELPFUL. THERE ARE SO MANY GREAT PLACES TO EAT IN OUR TOWN,THAT TO GET OTHER THAN JUST HOTEL TRADE THEY NEED A REVAMP.
