Diner Reviews
  • "You can always count on winstons for excellent service. They are one of the few places in town that can serve multiple large groups, yet at the same time, serve tables of only 2 with no delays. They will also adjust any meal to your needs. We have always had a great experience at Wintsons, but you better make a reservation for weekend dinning."

  • "Winston's is doing something right. It has been here for decades and still people come daily to fill all the tables. Their food is consistantly good. You know if you are going to get the "black & blue salad" for the umteenth time that it will be just as good today as it was 10 years ago...very fresh and oh so delicious!!! Also, Winston's is wonderful about accomodating their guests with substitutions. Once I went and my guest (who was celebrating her birthday) did not see the crab cake dinner on the menu so we asked if the chef could accomadate our wishes and he did!!! The only reason I didn't give my review 5 stars is because our waitress did not tell us about the daily specials."

  • "I've had the pleasure of dining at Winston's Grille numerous times, and every time it is amazing. I've been with just my girlfriend, family, and even a party of 50! Every time was special in its own way! Best brunch, not just in the Triangle, but any where."

  • "We LOVE Winston's! I eat there regularly with friends, and our son's rehearsal dinner was there, and we go there at night for special occasion's and recently had a birthday celebration there. The staff is excellent and Roger and Jamar go out of their way to make sure we have an enjoyable time, and for me a safe time as I have Celiac Disease, and Roger takes special care of me."

  • "Our daughter, Kathryn, is a student at NCSU. She has dined at Winton's on several occasions, including for our oldest daughter's bachelorette weekend in April. She chose your restaurant as a place she wanted us to take her for her birthday. We enjoyed our food and the service was impeccable. Thanks for helping to make her birthday special. We now have another favorite restaurant in the Raleigh area. The shrimp and grits were some of the best I've ever tried. What made the grits so creamy good?"

  • "Winston's is a great all around restaurant, that is on the regular rotation for many of us in North Raleigh. Great facility, and wonderful staff that make you always feel special and welcome. Food is always fresh, consistently good, and reasonable. Wine, and beer options are somewhat limited. I highly recommend Winston's for any occasion."

  • "Our food was delicious, but my steak was a bit over cooked. Our server was very friendly, informative, and attentive (without hovering). The ambience was nice, but I would not sit at a booth again - we all kept kicking each other because there was not enough room for four sets of feet, and my feet barely touched the floor (I'm 5'5" tall and my legs are not short). We will go back, but will make some changes in our seating preference, and I'll send my food back if it's not right."

  • "First time at Winston's and very impressed with the food and service - My only complaint is that it was very noisy and not easy to carry on a conversation. The tables were so close together!!"

  • "Winston's Grille has always been a good choice for dining (It's been in Raleigh since 1986, so that should tell the story) Quality food, reasonable price, polished service."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Winston's is a great choice for upscale casual dining. Food and service is consistently good, and even when the restaurant is full, it doesn't feel crowded. While not the trendiest choice in town, it does not disappoint for times when you are looking for a nicer dining experience."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Winston's is a great place! Gluten Free menu and good service. Does have a higher noise level, but was told that the "mezzanine" level offers a quieter venue for small groups to enjoy conversation better. Food ordered from our group was above average and flavorful."

  • "--Best ribeye I've ever had, really that good. --Great blue cheese iceberg wedge. Aah, the dinner rolls! I could make a meal just out of the wedge salad and the rolls with whipped butter. Attentive, professional, friendly service. There is no perfect restaurant, but this place does many things very well."

  • "We had a reservation for two. That should indicate that it's a date or two people who want to talk. Yet we were seated in a room with two large parties. One party had about 6 very young kids along with all the adults. Very, very noisy even though the kids were being very good. Just thought we should have been seated in another area where we could see couples and smaller groups."

  • "The service was great. The bar prepared a great manhatten martini. The food was prepared very well and as I had requested for my prime rib."

  • "Best place to have simply good food - excellent quality steaks or fish, well prepared with vegetables and/or potatoes. Or if you're in the mood for a entree salad, there are plenty to choose from as well."

  • "I love Winston's Grille. Invited out-of-town guests to join us there and they thoroughly enjoyed it too. Great menu selections. Food was great, service was great - and they're very flexible. I also love that they'll offer additional salad dressings for no charge. Very attuned to making customers happy. Thank you"

  • "I come to the Raleigh to see clients every quarter. For the past two years one of my clients always wants to eat at Winston's. We have always enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Great place for a business lunch."

  • "Winston's is hardly gourmet fare, but it never disappoints in the food quality and service. The menu variety works for everyone, they have a few specials every evening that are quite excellent and the atmosphere is pleasant and comfortable. It's a great suggestion when nobody can agree on what fare they want. Prime rib this night was perfect.......one of the specials of filet mignon in a tomato-mushroom demi-glace was nearly so (the tomato carried too strong of the sauce flavor). Recommend highly unless you're snooty."

  • "We dined at Winston's on Friday, June 6th and enjoyed our dining experience. Started with bruschetta and popcorn shrimp appetizers and they were both very good. Entrees included half rack and full rack of ribs, salmon and filet beef medallions. These were also good...one of our guests was not all that thrilled with the medallions. All four of us shared the chocolate cake dessert and it was good. Service was good. Overall good experience."

  • "We met friends here to celebrate an engagement. I made reservations based soley on the yelp.com and open table reviews. We will certainly go back! All of our dishes were different and all delicious. We kept seeing ice cream come out and quickly learned that it's a restaurant specialty. DELICIOUS! "

  • "The food was very good. We had the Carolina crab dip and it was delicious. The prime rib was cooked as ordered, quite tasty. I decided to have the creamy horseradish cream sauce with it. For dessert, my wife had the chocolate souffle' and it looked amazing! My wife ate every bite of it. I opted for the butter pecan cheesecake to go, which I ate much later and it was very good. They have a nice menu at Winston's and it's a nice cozy restaurant, we will be back again."

  • "We went for a family Sunday dinner. The entire experience,in a bit shell, was very average food at a slightly upmarket price with fairly inconsistent service. The service was quite disappointing. Our server was not very attentive and our food came out 45 mins after ordering. We had four entrees and none really stood out. With the average entree costing around 18 to 20 dollars and the quality can be best described as slightly tastier than Applebee's... It is tough to recommend this establishment on food or service. On a bright note, the ambiance is cozy and the outdoor tables are were well spaced for privacy and ease of hearing when talking with your party."
