Downtown Grill - Macon
Grilled Sea Scallops
Went there for my parents birthday party and we all had a blast! Amazing food and even better service! 5/5
Perfect place to celebrate my fiancé’s birthday! Delicious food and wonderful service. Made for a fantastic evening!
I took my mom there for her birthday and ee had the best experience. The service and food was excellent! We will definitely be back.
Outstanding experience from the time we called until we left the restaurant. Blake is a gem for a server, very knowledgeable and attentive. Can’t go wrong here😎
Best meal and ambiance my wife and I have ever had. Will definitely go back!
Consistently quality food and service! Will be back.
Great steaks of the highest quality withe the best service.
Great place for a romantic date and entertaining friends.
Amazing food and service. Lots of social distancing and no smoking which I hope they keep!!!! One of the best places to have a nice dinner in Macon!!!!
Food was good, pasta a bit overcooked, but meat and fish very good. Decoration a bit outdated.
I ordered the maple leaf duck and found it to be exquisite. The mashed potatoes were on point. The green beans with almonds could use some fixing, the almonds tasted like they were soaked in garlic juice, it didn’t permeate into the beans. I would prefer garlic to be tasted across the whole spectrum of green beans. Awesome food though.
Our dining experience at the Downtown grill was outstanding. My wife and I went for our 31st wedding anniversary and we were looking for a quite, fine dining experience. We couldn’t of been more pleased. The Downtown grill is located in an alley way between two major streets in downtown Macon. The building itself was unique. It is an older brick building that has been restored. It is an extremely cool place for those who like these type of renovated historic structures. They even have a plaque on the building proclaiming “Gregg Allman proposed to Cher here.” We had reservations and were promptly seated upon arrival. Our waitress was extremely friendly and attentive. We promptly ordered a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and our waitress let us know that it was Wednesday and that our wine would be half price. For appetizers my wife ordered the ahi tuna and I ordered a bowl of French onion soup. Both were outstanding and we both commented that the appetizers may have been the best that we have ever had. My wife ordered the pan seared fish with cheese grits and green beans. She absolutely loved her meal. I ordered the dry aged ribeye, pesto mashed potatoes and mushrooms. My steak was cooked to perfection and is one of, if not, the best steak that I have had in this area. The potatoes and mushrooms were a great compliment to my entree. Overall, our anniversary dinner was a huge success. It was our first time visiting the Downtown grill but it will not be our last.
Great service!!! Our server, Sarah, was amazing went above and beyond. 10/10 recommend and will fine again.
As always perfect
Low level lighting with exposed brick walls, topped with candle lit dining made the ambience a 10 out of 10. Ahi tuna appetizer and salmon special were absolutely delicious!
We had a fantastic dining experience at Downtown Grill. As visitors to Macon, we were looking for a one of a kind historic dining experience at a steakhouse. Downtown Grill was such find. Blake was our attentive waiter, spoiling us really. I choose a Rye whiskey and my husband was served Blake’s spicy recommendation. Did I mention the two page whiskey choices? We had appetizers, salads and a main course. Duck was tender and moist, Filet melted in our mouth and the Elk was divine. Enjoy!
My Steak was very good and tender well seasoned. They butterflied my steak which was awesome! My husband ordered the Cowboy steak medium and his too was delicious he really enjoyed. We both had a side of mashed potatoes and asparagus which were very tasty!!! This was our 2nd time and we will definitely be going back. First time husband tried the duck he loved it! Great atmosphere
This is a classy yet affordable restuarant that serves quality food at a reasonable price. The restuarant is in a historical building which is tucked away in an alley which makes your dinning experience very unique. Parking can be a little tricky but restuarant does offer valet parking. The ambiance is very good. The menu isn't super large but large enough and all the dishes (steaks, seafood, chicken, and even some pasta) offered are top notch. Try their chocolate chip bread pudding. It is delicious!
Excellent service and food. I’ve been a chef for 30 years and y’all nailed it. Thanks for making our anniversary amazing.
This restaurant was outstanding in every way. We will definitely return!
Wish I hadn’t waited so long to eat here! Also wish there was no smoking at the bar.
Fabulous service, appetizers, salad, bread, main course, wine, coffee & dessert! We didn’t feel rushed & received just the right amount of attention from Blake, our server! The aged ribeye was so juicy & flavorful & so huge that we had to take some home. The andouille crusted trout was spicy, fresh & cooked perfectly. All of the food was perfect. I love how it was dark, quiet, & private.
We went for the first time and were excited about the experience. We were placed in their back room which is closed off from the rest of the restaurant. It was very quiet and awkward around the other tables. I would go again but request not to be sat in that room. It ruined our experience.
Really great food, staff, and atmosphere.
We were put in a back room that didn’t match the rest of the restaurant. It was disappointing
We had one of our favorite servers, which always gets the evening off to a great start. She paced everything perfectly and the food, as always, was perfectly prepared and delicious. We had a great evening. What’s also great about Downtown Grill is the fact it’s popular with folks on expense accounts and large parties, but it’s laid out in such a way that it never interferes with our ability to enjoy a night out. Highly recommended for a fun night out.
Our server was just as amazing as the food! Sarah's explanations of the items on the menu made each one sound incredible. I wanted to eat everything on the menu. Our meal was a birthday celebration and it was beyond delicious. We will be back again to try more dishes. Thanks for a great night!
Great service!!!! We added a lot of people at the very last minute and the staff did an amazing job at accommodating us! They were extremely gracious and, as always, the food was wonderful!
We tried this restaurant for the first time Friday night before a concert at the nearby Macon Auditorium. It's a little hard to find using GPS, but definitely persist. It's worth it. Turns out the do have valet parking, which we did not realize.
The setting is old-school, but kind of cozy. The service was outstanding. Our server timed everything perfectly to get us to show on time and did a great job guiding us to some really tasty choices. The menu is extensive and full of a great variety of meat and seafood dishes. The craft cocktail menu and wine list are also quite good. Will definitely find an excuse to go back here when next in Macon.
The food was wonderful, just like it usually is! The service was good. We were celebrating my birthday, and they offered a complimentary desert, but we were too full!
We were a table of 6. Made reservations through open table. The valet was a little slow. Only one attendant. We were seated timely. We ordered appetizers and drinks. The crab cakes were more breading than crab, and the sushi grade ahi Tuna was overcooked. The cheese board with the bread and honey was great. We all had steaks and 4 were cooked perfectly and 1 a little overcooked but delicious. The salad and spinach were excellent but the broccoli was overpriced. 1 small portion over 5.00. The green beans were very salty.
The service was good but not very attentive. This was a birthday as noted on the reservation. No special attention for the occasion. The Dessert we had was creme’ brûlée’. Good dessert but I prefer more of a custard versus pudding texture. The coffee tasted burnt. One person was taking leftovers. The waiter offered to box it but never retired with it and we eventually left.
My only complaint of the ambiance was you have to walk through the smoke filled (cigar) bar to get to your table.
Our bill was over $500 which was a little more than expected expected but wasn’t necessarily a negative. The tip was included. I would over tip If not, but since it was included that’s all that was left.
I would probably try at least one more time.
Excellent fish and steaks, great service. Smoking allowed at the bar and you have to walk through the bar to the restaurant.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. We will be back.
Very enjoyable meal, great selection of wine too. Shannon was our server, very personable and offered great recommendations for our meal. This is a definite when in Macon.
This is a unique venue, down an alley in an old building with lots of character. To get to the dining area you walk past a smokey bourbon bar into a leather accented restaurant area. The menu has good american fare variety, heavy on the daily specials.
I have eaten here 4 or 5 times in 2019; it varies from good to extraordinary. 2020 started off really good.
Second time coming. I had the Elk, which was very tasty( and pricy) wish there was more of it though. Sides were cheese grits soufflé, asparagus and a Caesar salad, which were excellent. Appetizers- crab cakes and grit fritters- delicious. Service was on point, (great job Erin!)The only thing was this obnoxiously loud talking table right next to ours, everyone else seemed annoyed as well. But except for that, it was awesome. I’ll be back ASAP. Definitely top 5 restaurants in Macon/Bibb.
Downtown Grill is our favorite place for special occasions. This visit did not disappoint!
It's a very nice place we go to for special occasions. It is pricey but food is delicious.
Worst New York strip ever served to me. Tough and flavorless.
