A hidden gem. The food was delicious. The service was great. And everyone was extremely helpful. They don’t try to impress with portion size. Be impressed with high-quality food, appropriate portion size, and a reasonable price
We will definitely be back.

If you go at lunch be sure to arrive by 11:30 or get reservations. The outside seating is nice when the weather is good. The inside noise level can make quiet conversation difficult.

The food is consistently wonderful. Great menu, excellent desserts, some of the best Capuccino in town, good bar. As wonderful as the food is 4 out of 5 servers have poor communication skills, seem bored or rather indifferent like they would rather be doing something else, have little to no eye contact and kind of make you feel as though you are imposing on them in some way. This does not include the Host or Bar tender whom are friendly and attentive. After eating there a dozen times over the last two years I only recall two servers that had a friendly personality and provided service comparable to the menu and quality of food. I would definitely and have recommended this restaurant to friends and patients for the excellent food but have started letting them know that service might not be on par with the food.

I love the Glenwood grill. I have NEVER had a bad meal. Now that fall has arrived I can now indulge in their great soups. I consider this restaurant to be moderately upscale so I enjoy dressing up. Unfortunately, there were young, noisy children and customers dressed in jeans and Tee shirts. I enjoy dining at this restaurant at least twice a month. Please dress up and partake in a fantastic meal. Cheers to the Chef.

Our special place! It was our anniversary and what better place to celebrate than the GG! I tried the beef short ribs for the first time ever. They were delicious. My hubby always loves his rack. Thanks for making our evening so special.

Always a good ambiance at Glenwood Grill. This time the entrees disappointed. The fish was overcooked and lacked flavor. However the beet salad was good and general experience pleasant.
