A few minutes after arriving the hostess came over to say the high top we reserved is still occupied and would we want a booth. She was so sweet and accommodating. It gets better. Our estrus was the best. She described the entrees so wonderfully. You could picture the meal. Unfortunately three of us ordered the clams only to find out you had run out. We choose another option and it was delicious! Thank you

Another great meal here tonight. On a Saturday night, was packed and I must say was too loud for complete enjoyment. I prefer coming during the week to avoid the noise. So, keep that in mind if you're looking for a quiet dinner. That said, glad we came as the chow was its normal awesomeness.

We enjoyed a Caprese Salad, Goat Cheese Salad, Parm Fries (always served piping hot... so good), Scallops, and the new preparation of their Pork Chop (highly recommended). A bottle of vino and great service.

We love this place!

The Clinton Grill never disappoints. The food, the service and the ambiance is always top notch. However, it is noisy when there is a group in the loft or at the bar. Aside from that, the Clinton Grill is my go-to place for casual lunches and celebratory dinners.

Really enjoyed all our food selections - unusual twists and very tasty! I had mussels, but they were green New Zealand mussels, which you don't find around here, and the broth was very good.

Way too noisy. I may go back when the weather is warm enough to sit outside. Should I be asked for a recommendation I would suggest wearing earplugs and don't expect to have a conversation.

Love it there. It is very loud inside, so if you are looking for a quiet dinner, this may not be your place. The food is outstanding, definitely on the pricier side which makes it a place we can only enjoy a few times of the year, but I feel the quality is worth it.

What a pleasant surprise to find an upscale restaurant of this caliber in the small town of Clinton. My meal (green salad with pears and warm goat cheese followed by pizza with portobello mushrooms and spinach) was a perfect lunch with lots left over for another meal at home. I would love to come back and try more of the options offered on their extensive menu.

Great food and service. Perhaps a glass partition placed between the bar and dining room could cut down on the noise level without impairing the visual.
I also strongly feel the cost is $$$ not $$.

I have never had a bad meal at Clinton's & they're usually exceptional. This time I took a friend who had never been and immediately she loved the atmosphere. The refreshing special drinks down to the huge Angus burgers & Arugula salad were all perfect! Our server was on point. I will be back again!

The food was outstanding for this type of restaurant. I had one of the best Caesar Salads I have ever had and I almost always order one at every restaurant I visit. Had it not been for the incredibly loud noise level, I would have given this restaurant a five star rating. Something needs to be done to mitigate the sound level. It is nearly impossible to hear the server or someone at your own table.

It was love at first sight! The decor, the energy, the table arrangement, and the beautiful bar all were amazing! My dining partner had Chicken Marsala and he said it was the best he had ever had! My short ribs were so tender and tasty - I cut them with my fork!
It was a bit noisy as there was a party going on upstairs, but it just added (in a good way) to the great energy to the place. I loved it, and will go back - it's worth the 30-minute trip from my home!

We were very impressed the food and atmosphere was fantastic. We had reservations at 7:45 and unfortunately we weren’t sat till 8:20 at a high top in the bar area. This would not affect my decision to return. We think it’s a very nice addition to the Main Street of Clinton ma.

We had an outstanding meal. We shared a wedge salad, my husband had the chicken Marsala, and I had the filet. The food was outstanding! The service was exquisite! The noise level in there was atrocious. I had to scream to talk to my husband right next to me. And the air conditioning was surely working!! It was freezing in there.

I highly recommend. We’ve eaten here a dozen times and each time was an excellent experience - the food is very good qualiry and reasonably priced and generous portions. Sometimes it can get crowded on weekend evenings so make a reservation. The servers are attentive and occasionally irreverent but overall way above average.

We did ask the waitress to take her time with our courses, but she could have been a lot more attentive to our drinks. We went to the bar ourselves at one point.

Such an excellent spot. Upon entry, hard to miss Albert (the manager) right at the front desk. He oversees the operation and keeps a watchful eye on the dining room to ensure that all is going as it should.

Our meal was excellent, as usual. The fries, perfect... served hot. Scallop app... fantastic. The goat cheese salad, fresh and perfectly dressed. My son has a passion for the chicken parm served with pasta. A giant portion... so good. I tried the pan roasted chicken for the first time... a nice piece of chicken, meaty and excellent.

Nice wine by the glass and attentive service. I like being able to get excellent chow in a casual setting.

Dinner was delicious. All 4 of us really enjoyed our food. The host was friendly and made sure our request for a booth was taken care of.
But our waitress Kelsey made the experience awesome!! She was friendly and very knowledgeable and gave us her suggestions and raved about the chef and menu. She was very busy but made sure she checked on us and that we had everything we needed.
We will definitely be back to Clintons bar and grille!

As always the Clinton Grille did not disappoint. We had to change our reservation at the last minute to add 1 more person and they went out of their way to accommodate us despite the late notice on a very busy Saturday night. Our guest - a relative who we hadn't seen for years - had never been to the Clinton Grille before and they were very impressed with the food and the service. We stayed at the table longer than we normally would have and longer than they would have liked but they did not pressure us to leave. Very appreciated.

We feel so fortunate to have been recommended Clinton Bar and Grille by a friend. The environment is date night beautiful whether you are sitting in main area or at the bar/high tops. The MatreD and the servers are so utterly welcoming that you feel like you are a friend of the owner. Finally, the food was just amazing. Our table of four all ordered different starters, salads and mains - everyone was thrilled about their meal. Not only would I recommend it to a friend, I will be taking all of my out of town guests Clinton Bar and Grille.
