Had an excellent meal with my family at Glenwood Grill. I had never been before but have seen the good reviews, and they did not disappoint. My Rack of Lamb was some of the best I've ever had, and everyone in my party loved their entrées. This place is a hidden gem and I certainly hope to be back soon.

Give it five stars for lunch, not sure about dinner as I've just had lunch there. Good food and selection with a nice ambiance. Service was good.

Nice, neighborhood grill and bar with upscale southern food. I had the parmesan fried oysters, which were very good, and a beet and arugula salad. As it was our anniversary, we got a free dessert--we chose the three-fruit cobbler--which my husband and I shared. It was huge, plenty for 2–3 people.

The food and service are always the best in town. This being our 46th anniversary celebration we wanted to make it a special night so we chose Glenwood over Ruth Chris. Glennwood is our number one restaurant and is the place we always take out of town guests for dinner. After the first experience, when they come back to town, they ask to go back. Justin provided the very best service. He seemed to always be one step ahead of us. His wine recommendation was excellent and he provided a special dessert in celebration of our anniversary. Looking forward to our next visit. The restaurant is a little noisy, but worth the experience.

Ordered tuna appetizer...tuna was tough, not tender....seems like it had “cooked” like a ceviche would. It was sitting in something tangy (maybe vinegar) and HAD BEEN SITTING in for a while...for it to be the consistency it was. Waiter was excellent—-was nice enough to comp a dessert (which was absolutely delish)....

Went out to dinner to catch up with a friend I haven't seen in a while. We both enjoyed our food (steaks, mashed potatoes, spinach salad) and cocktails over a couple hours. Our server was attentive and we never felt rushed. The bread was delicious too!

A wonderful restaurant that is somewhat "hidden away" in a small shopping center...seems to be largely patronized by locals, but it has been around for more than 30 years, so in my opinion this speaks very well for their consistent quality and service! We are not locals, and we felt very fortunate to have found it...we highly recommend it!

The food was superb. The service was courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was nice, although it was so loud it was nearly impossible to carry on a conversation during dinner. I wound not hesitate to go back...did I mention the food is amazing. Patio dining might be a quieter option. Save room for desert, you won’t be disappointed!

We go to Glenwood Grill so often that we know what tables we like best and they always reserve them for us.
Last night they graciously provided tastes of two wines I was deciding between to help me choose. After we ordered the waitress dropped off a sample of the soup special, which we hadn’t ordered, so that we’d be familiar with it.
As always, they took fabulous care of us and they NEVER disappoint!

The best part of my experience was how quickly the food was served.
The staff were not all that friendly, albeit efficient.
We both ordered a cheese burger and French fries.
The burger was good. It was perfectly cooked and the toppings were quite good. The fries were a big disappointment. Thy were cut way too thick. As such they barely tasted like fries.
All things considered, the bad outweighed the good.
Accordingly we’ll not be back, and we don’t recommend it.

First time visit, celebrating our wedding anniversary. We made the reservation two weeks in advance and were seated right away. Extremely close quarters and loud and the ac couldn't keep up with all the body heat. Now for the good stuff: The food was worth waiting for and then some. Everything on the plate was delicious and we were especially pleased that Justin honored us with a dessert on the house. We felt special and having Justin as our wait-person made it all the more special. On our next visit we will want Justin, again - he is a solid professional and represents the Glenwood Grill very well.

Love G Grill, but always a guess where you are seated. We ended up with odd and loud people next to us, like 6 inches from us.

Not a travesty, just a distraction. Food and service fantastic as usual.
