Diner Reviews
  • "The service was not as to be expected. The waitress and very disrespectful and seemed to have an attitude. When asked questions about the menu she proceeded to carry on with what she was doing without answering question. The food was good but again i feel as if we should have gotten it faster than what we did."

  • "I used Opentable to make a reservation at Winston's for the first time. We had never been to Winston's and I wanted to surprise my girlfriend. The reservation process went smoothly and the table was ready when we arrived. The food and service was good. Even though they were busy for the holiday they were attentive to our needs. Would definitely recommend to friends."

  • "Maybe sitting outside was the problem but, service was slow, meals over cooked. The evening was beautiful and sitting outside seemed like a good idea until we had to wait for everything. Not up to par and we left with a lower opinion of Winston's."

  • "We took our teenage grandchildren for dinner at Winston's on Friday night. They as well as us enjoyed our dinner. That's saying a lot for teenagers!!! It was an upbeat and very enjoyable dining experience. I would certainly recommend reservations as it is very busy with a lot of energy. The noise level is high but for our group that was no problem. If you are looking for a real quiet, romantic setting, I would not recommend this restaurant. It was a great evening for us and I would certainly recommend Winston's!!!"

  • "Had a reservation and was seated promptly. The server (Kristi) explained the specisls and answered our questions. The food was perfect. We had rotisserie chicken, London broil steak, and the catfish special. Our drinks were never empty. Other server was alert taking note of minor things that improved the experience. We will definitely be back for more."

  • "As usual, Winston's delivered a nice dining experience. Our table of 6 has some special requests regarding the food, and all criteria were met. The only disappointment was one of the specials that my husband ordered. Instead of blue cheese crumbles on his prime rib, the meat was covered in a very cheesy sauce, masking the flavor of the steak. It won't stop us from going back again."

  • "We wanted to eat something other than BBQ while visiting our son in Raleigh. I found Winston's through google and open table. Very glad we went. The place was extremely busy and luckily we had made reservations ahead of time through open table. Food was good but came a bit early, we did not finish our cocktails or appetizer yet.... Wait staff was very friendly."

  • "I have been to Winston's several times, and my experiences have always been great! The food is delicious and served at both the right temperatures and right time. The ambiance is energetic, but not TOO lively."

  • "This is a restaurant that you can rely on. Winston's is not the flashiest restaurant in the area, nor the most chic. You won't find the latest food fad on the menu. But food and service are consistently good. The bar knows how to mix a cocktail. Seafood, salad, soup, beef, chicken -- you won't go wrong. In 25 years of dining there, I've never had a bad experience. It is a Raleigh institution and deserves to be."

  • "Exceptionally poor service. Wait person was not properly trained, recited the specials without conviction or interest, spoke too fast, did not enunciate well and interrupted our conversation and meals with impatient drive by questions. In fact, we asked about desserts while midway through our main courses! On the whole, very good food spoiled by poor service."

  • "4 of us for dinner. Featured wine - wonderful. Gluten-free menu was appreciated & Delish. Vegetarian items Delish! A really good meal! Service was relaxed and very good! Dessert choices are numerous & all were pleased! My only complaint is that upon initially walking in there was a musty smell. It dissipated or I got use to it."

  • "We waited until the last moment, but then used Open Table to try to find a spot with good reviews to seat six of us. We had heard of Winston's Grille before, but we're on the other side of Raleigh and, so never had a reason to travel that far, but we wanted to do something different for our son's birthday. We had a reservation at 7:30 and was immediately seated and the server (can't remember her name) was spot on all evening. She had the perfect mix of attentiveness without interfering and did a great job throughout the meal. The food was great and the dessert tray was VERY enticing...the strawberry shortcake was amazing. Wish it wasn't so far away as I could see this becoming a go to place for us..."

  • "Food was overlooked (poached eggs were hard cooked). Our waitress served us our food and never returned until another waitress got her. We were so hungry that we ate our food since there was no one to ask to return it. Will not do brunch there again."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "We went for the prime rib. The meat was flavorful and very tender. My green beans on the side were vibrant green and tender/crisp! We had very good service. It was worth the drive from Chapel Hill to North Raleigh!"
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "We were seated next to a table with 11 diners. We had the same server. Because she was so involved with the big table, we were neglected throughout the meal. I had to ask for drink refills, rolls and butter and wet napkins to wipe my hands after eating the Baby Back Ribs, which were outstanding as usual. My wife ordered the prime rib, which was horrible. Half of it was fat and the meat was very chewy. For $26.95 I would have expected a lot better piece of beef. I also noted some diners at the big table, who had ordered the prime rib experienced some of the same issues. We dine at Winston's quite often and I must say this was our first bad experience. Everything this time tasted fine with the exception of the prime rib."

  • "My husband and I went to Winstons after a movie in North Hills. We made a reservation which wasn't necessary that Saturday night. The service was okay. Nothing spectacular or out of the ordinary when it comes to the service we received. However, the food was great. Hats off to the chef. My husband and I loved our meals and that almost never happens. My husband had some London broil special they had that night and I had the triple crown. Both meals were cooked perfectly. I would definitely recommend this place just for that alone."

  • "The food and service are outstanding! The management team is focused on their client's and have a presence in the dining room checking on service and quality of food. The food presentation is awesome! The meal portions are generous and always seasoned perfectly. I have never ever had to send anything back because it was under cooked or over cooked. The food is great value for the price. I have had dinner with friends as well as clients at this location. Can't say enough good things about the place."

  • "Overall our dining experience at Winston's Grille was pretty good. Unfortunately they were out of prime rib which is sort of why we chose Winston's. I understand that it was 9:15p but it was Valentine's Day weekend, you'd think they'd be more prepared. I ordered the filet medium rare and it was overcooked. But it was close to 10p so I just ate it. The food tasted delicious. The wine and cocktail were great. And dessert. Dessert was amazing!"
