Clock Tower Grill Ratings and Reviews
This was my second trip to Clocktower Grill and I was underwhelmed. The food was good, nothing exceptional but good. Our service was not great and I don't really blame our particular server. There was 1 main server working the whole room and like 4 people helping bring and clear plates. I asked 3 different people for bread before finally getting it after my appetizers were cleared. After our meal we waited 40 minutes before the server came back and asked if we got our desert. Nobody even came to take our desert order. We then waited another 20 minutes for the check. It just seemed like a bad system all around.
Really wanted to like this place having read the good reviews. It wasn’t bad but there was not much flavor to the food we ordered. I also felt the hv restaurant week menu was a cut back version of the regular menu. Not much of a deal. The positive was we had a very nice waiter and a nice bottle of wine.
Attractive foodie style pub. Sadly, the food, and the inattentive, albeit friendly service, provides little incentive to return. Shrimp and grits were overpowered by bacon marmalade. Bacon appetizer, was a visually unappealing slab. Salmon, cooked nicely but the boring bed of red lentils needs a flavor boost. Salads, did their job, but did not excel. Desserts, lackluster. Lonely apple crumble desperately needed a dollop of whipped cream. Nice beer selection but you'll be parched before the frosty glass arrives. FYI, review is based on three tries: once for dinner and twice for lunch.
The Clock Tower Grill is delivering the goods. I have been in hospitality for almost two decades and I am tough to impress. The food is on point and the culinary team is using great ingredients highlighting local farmers/producers. The service staff is attentive and friendly and the ambiance and decor elements make you feel right at home. Live close by? Go frequently. Don’t live so close - make the trip.
Excellent as always - I had scallops which were perfectly cooked and caramelized, paired with grits which were amazing! Another in our party had meatloaf which was fabulous. Great choice of very good, reasonably priced, wine. Love this restaurant, and live music on Friday nights is lots of fun too.
My wife and I visited the Clock Tower Grill on a Friday evening. When we arrived at 6:30 there were empty seats but that soon changed. As we began eating our appetizer, it became apparent that the food would meet or exceed our expectations. My wife said the lamb burger was delicious and the fries were excellent. I had the braised beef short ribs with potato and caramelized carrot. It was outstanding. The beer selection was terrific as well. While I wouldn't call the meal inexpensive, it certainly was not overpriced and it was worth every penny. I would recommend the Clock Tower Grill to anyone.
Unfortunately the slow kitchen ruined our evening. It took an hour and 25 minutes for our food to come, at which point we had less than five minutes to eat it, because we had somewhere to be. This is the longest I've had to wait for food at any restaurant in years. Our waitress gave us our drinks on the house but this really didn't make up for the fact that we were completely unable to enjoy our dinner. Also, my chicken was so overcooked it tasted like sawdust. Too bad, because the appetizers and the beers were tasty and we had high hopes for the place. It wasn't even that full - so they have some major work to do in their kitchen.
While we have enjoyed clock tower grill in the past, our recent dinner there was extremely disappointing. The menu was excellent as always. Unfortunately there was a problem in the kitchen The night we were there. We received our appetizers almost immediately. Our main courses, however, took so long to arrive that we had to leave before they were ready, an hour and 25 minutes after we had arrived. We had a music show to attend and couldn’t wait any longer. After waiting for so long, the kitchen could not even tell us when to expect the food because they had a new chef and the kitchen was chaotic. Hopefully our recent experience was an exception, but suffice it to say that we will not return for a few months when hopefully they will have smoothed ou the problems in the kitchen.
I have been to this restaurant many times and always loved it. This time, however, the service was sub-par and the food came out lukewarm. If you're spending $30 for an entree, you expect the food to be piping hot and the service to be attentive. Neither was the case. Very disappointed. Won't be going back.
It was a birthday dinner for myself with my family. The woman who seated us was also our waitress. Very attentive at the beginning. Once we got our meal she never came back until it was time to give us our dessert menu. Nobody ever checked in with us to see how our meal was, to see if we wanted another drink...nothing. Was going to order dessert for my birthday but it took about 15 minutes for her to find us again and ask us what we wanted. I didn't feel it was worth it at that point. Food was very good but bad service put a sour note on the evening.
Though I was swayed towards choosing a lamb burger, it was small, without any originality and overcooked. Not as ordered. But they did the correct thing, without a peep and replaced it with my original choice, grilled salmon. It was good, not fantastic. My date's short ribs were excellent. Would I return? Probably.
Something has changed. I love this place, it's my go-to for special occasions when I'm in the area but our last meal was very disappointing. The quality of the meal was well below what we are used to getting. Maybe a new chef? Very average meal from what has been a favorite of my Foodie family.
The food was amazing. I had the lamb burger which was cooked to perfection, my husband ordered the oyster sandwich which was again out of this world and my vegetarian friend had the lentil, sweet potato and chick pea curry. We were all extremely impressed. I have to say the whipped feta cheese with honey which we shared as a starter was incredible. Totally unexpected and so delicious. We had requested a table outside which we got, but the only downside to this was having to hear the main door slam whenever other customers or wait staff entered of exited. However, we had a great night and will be back.
Come at least once a season. Yes, every season the executive chef changes the menu. The core, everyday plates will always be there like the braised short rib, but you will be amazed by the creativity in both the apps and the main courses. Highly recommended; undeniably great farm-to-table food.
Was our second visit to Clock Tower. Our first visit the food was very good along with service, atmosphere etc. We were really looking forward to returning and even brought a friend to enjoy a meal with. However, although it remains to be a pleasant dining experience, the food lacked taste and originality. Sorry to say we were very disappointed since we were really looking forward to returning, sharing our previous dining experience with a friend and enjoying our meal. Not sure if we will return, we found the food to be mediocre.
