I have to admit I was expecting so much better. I ordered the filet 4oz and scallops it was 38 dollars I believe. The steak was suppose to be medium and came out well done. So dry. They finally did offer to take back but by the time that happened my husband would of Been finished eating. And the scallops I ordered a side to go with it and got two scallops..Now we love good restaurats but the dish was not worth what I paid.
Waitress was polite bit seemed rushed. Music was nice.
The anniversary card was nice they left us on table.

I love the ambiance here...the wine was super and so was the service....the onion soup was good but my scallop dinner was just ok.....something about the way it was served didn't do it for us....4 scallops surrounding a mound of rice with spinach on top...would have rather had it separated...the scallops tasted fine but not great....otherwise all was well....love the music, great lighting , comfortable booths, great service....would go back but would have to know what to order that I would be happy with

 (Charleston)·Dined on January 27, 2018

we have gone to apsen over the years for special occasions. We have not been there in about two years. we were a bit disappointed this time. it was noisy, lighting was bright, food was not as good as we had in the past. not sure if there was a new cook or what. my husbands steak was not that good. my pork meal was nothing special, in the past the food was outstanding and could only brag on it all. The presentation of the food was not what i remember, looked like it was just flopped on the plate. now the dessert was good home churned blue berry icecream and blueberry bread pudding.

we took home left overs, only to find out the cheap box that the food was put in, left paper on the food. We had to pick the paper off in order to reheat the left overs.

our waitress was ok, but not like Dee- that we have had in other years. The other waiters were loud.


dont think we will go back for probably another few years.

My wife and I were treated very well. The food was well presented, cooked well and was at proper temp. The fried oyster app was perfect. We split a green salad ( waiters idea well done)
The portions were well suited for the dollar ( were great for lunch the next day). The dessert was Great 12 layer cake Yum-Yum, Must have the coffee great blend. Only small comment was the Lamb was not lean enough ( watch the cook temp too.) I will be back, Great Place Thanks

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on January 20, 2018

We just moved to MB from the Philadelphia area and were told that Aspen Grille was one of the top restaurants in MB. The food was very disappointing. Over done pork chop. Cold mashed potatoes. Bland poorly breaded fried green tomatoes. Also the bread was boring. Great restaurants have great bread. It was restaurant week, which we did not know when we made the reservation. So we will give them a break and try one more time. Positives were the waiter, the wines by the glass and the risotto with shrimp and the flourless chocolate cake.

Excellent dining experience. Food was delicious with quality ingredients. Attentive wait staff. Interesting tidbit with variety of salts provided to season foods to individual preferences. I have never experienced that - a nice touch.

Having eaten at Aspen Grille numerous times, usually selecting a seafood entree, I was a bit disappointed with my chicken entree selection this time around, as I found the chicken quite tough. Nevertheless, presentation was excellent and I look forward to returning for some fabulous seafood and spinach that literally melts in my mouth!

Our first time here. Food was delicious. The crab cake appetizer was probably the best I’ve had in a long time - wasn’t spicy and full of breading like most; it was just packed with crab meat and flavor. The strip steak was very good, cooked perfectly to medium rare. Would definitely come back.

We had shrimp and filet and filet and lobster. ALL WERE COOKED PERFECTLY.
The noise level was low with a background of soft music.
The staff and service were excellent.
We are locals and are never disappointed.

 (Greensboro)·Dined on December 29, 2017

Nice restaurant but a very special birthday celebration was dampened by a very unenthusiastic server. The hostess was very nice and wished my friend a Happy Birthday. The server never did, talked in a monotone voice, I don't think she ever even smiled. The only time she pepped up was when it was time to pay and we guessed she thought she needed to in order to get a tip. I'm still upset with myself for leaving her a generous tip. She didn't deserve it. I probably won't visit this restaurant again because of this. Too pricey to have an unappreciative server!

This was our first time here after coming down to Meryl Beach for over 10 years. When we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly hostess staff and immediately brought to our table. Our server Dee was absolutely wonderful. She was extremely friendly and offered good suggestions and based on that we had the specials for the evening. The cocktails and wine also offered a nice selection. The place was decorated really nice for the Holidays. Overall our experience here was very positive. The menu is on the higher side of price but well worth the food and service. This made for an exceptional evening. We will be back again.
