We have been to this restaurant many times. It is always very noisy and lights are kept low but the food and wait staff were always very good. Not so this time. It had been awhile since we were there last and quite honestly I was not prepared for the wait staff to be in such a disarray. It was busy there but that is not a cause for the wait staff to be in such a rush. Our wine glasses were put down on the table so hard I’m surprised they didn’t break, had to remind her to bring bread and even then had to wait an extra 10 minutes for it. The wait staff kept walking through the tables so fast , it felt like we were on a freeway. NOT relaxing at all. As far as the food. My wife’s filet was dry and without taste our guest’s chicken was fine. Mine was NOT good at all. I ordered the rib eye which I have had many times prior and it was always very good. This time I knew something was different looking at it. I tried to cut and the knife was not able to unless I pushed down hard. Meat was dry, tough and tasteless. Only half was edible the rest was grizzly. The manager came over and admitted they were buying a lower quality meat because of cost. Both he and the waitress told me it is a “choice cut”. Maybe that is true but it was a lousy cut of meat and should not have been served. At least they took my meal off the bill.
Not sure if I will go back but I know it won’t be for awhile. It is not cheap here and they need to get their act together.

When you walk though the door Albert welcomes you with open arms, Ricky the most fabulous server/ bartender mixes the most delicious cocktail for your consumption and your start to your delicious meal begins! We ❤️CBG as it always feels like home between the food and the staff. The food is consistently on point. The place is buzzing as it is most definitely a diamond in the rough located right on Clinton High St.

The main fault was with parking. Never expected to have a difficult time parking @ 5:30. Was not aware of there being a street festival which resulted in road closures and heavy traffic and lack of street parking. No dedicated parking for restaurant that I could see. Was late for reservation because of this. My meal, Potato Chip Encrusted Haddock, was excellent and our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. Will be back again!!

The menu has not changed since the start of 2019, so it could benefit from an update to refresh choice. Service was excellent, and the food was delicious, enjoyed by all four in the party. Special mention to the calamari appetizer, tender and perfectly cooked with an excellent sauce!

Local favorite. Brought another friend this time and he loved it as well.
(There isn't anything I tried that hasn't been special.)
We shared the BUTTERNUT SQUASH FILLED RAVIOLIS, BROWNED BUTTER SAGE SAUCE, BABY LEAF SPINACH, SHAVED ASIAGO appetizer. The sauce was wonderful!!
This time I had the steak tips with the Arugula salad. My date had the WALNUT ENCRUSTED WARM GOAT CHEESE, FIELD GREENS salad and the TRUFFLED PAN SEARED SCALLOPS (appetizer).
All cooked perfectly and very yummy.

It was a little hard to have a conversation, but still my favorite restaurant in the area!

Waitress nice but made several mistakes resulting in overcooked steaks. Unable to accommodate food allergy without having to change whole order. Needless to say none of us are ate at the same time resulting in an unsatisfying birthday dinner.

First time eating there. Everything we got was delish. Someone gave us a gift certificate to try it. The only complaint is that it is on the pricey side and we probably wouldn’t take the family of 5 there for dinner. But my husband and I will come again.

We loved the Clinton bar and grille! They had a great wine selection. I had the best chicken Marsala and my boyfriend had an amazing filet. Prices for good for the quality of food. We also sat outside so the noise level was fine. It was a Friday night so the service was a little bit slow but the food was worth the wait =) would definitely go back!

Taste, timeliness, temperature, accurate, hospitable and price-worthy are all the descriptive words that come to mind in recalling all of the 6 meals I have consumed here.
Regardless of the meals/experience being an on-line reservation for the indoor, outdoor patio or to-go order placed by phone; I am always greeted warmly and the food exceeds my Italian, red-tape expectations!
“Undoubtedly the highest caliper in town!”

We took my Mother-in-law for the first time, she absolutely loved her sautéed shrimp dish. My daughter got the chicken parmigiana and I got the angus beef lasagna and we split ours with each other. We plan on doing that the next time we go. Both meals were delicious!! It's great to have such a wonderful restaurant fairly close to home.

Top notch service in a beautiful restaurant with outstanding food. One would never know you were in Clinton, MA but were somehow transported to a very nice Cape/Islands restaurant. Our server, Jackie/Jacqui(?) was stellar and extremely professional. The food is always fantastic. It can get a bit pricy but it's worth it. Only gripe, and it's a big one, is the noise level. It's AWFUL. Go off hours for a bit quieter dining experience. For a fine dining establishment, it sounds like you're in a sports bar. Okay, one other gripe to the management: PLEASE add vegetarian/vegan options besides pizza. We will return more often when you do and I suspect other vegetarians will flock to your establishment as well. Thanks.

The service was friendly and helpful. We sat outside and the only problem was the smokers that were on the sidewalk. My food was perfectly cooked, a little heavy on the butter and cheese but very tasty. Inside seemed full of happy energy. Definitely a nice gem!
