Spur of the moment decision to have an early dinner at 6:00pm. Been many times but this turned out really well . The filet steak was cooked perfectly and the pork chops special was fab. Portion size perfect.

So disappointed. A large party of 12 was seated next to our little two top. It was awful. The waiter's rear end was 12 inches from my face every time he had to come in to yell at the table. (It was that loud.) We were ignored as he tried to manage the large top. I somehow get that, having been a waiter years ago. But then we are waiting to have our dessert order taken and he is chaining up the tables on the front patio? What a disaster. I will never go back.

We had friends visiting from out of town and noticed Glenwood Grill was open on Sunday night. We were surprised to see a few empty tables as word has not gotten out yet. Same great food and excellent service.

All of their food was prepared perfectly, just exquisitely, even though the restaurant was very busy. The chef deserves major kudos. As just one example, I don't usually like crème brulee because of the typical burnt taste that left me feeling that it was just a good flan ruined. But their crème brulee was lightly flamed such that they caramelized the top without invoking the burnt flavor. The duck with a balsamic fig reduction and their vegetables were also done just perfectly.

I love their casual but elegant ambiance. I think that Glenwood Grill is underrated and will definitely return more frequently.

Great for a meeting lunch as noise is at a minimum. Food while tasty and well seasoned is not the most interesting. Service was friendly and efficient.

This was the third time my book club decided to go to Glenwood Grill for our monthly dinner - we haven't been anywhere else more than twice. Wait staff is always very helpful and pleasant. Food is delicious. I am a wus when it comes to spicy food. I ordered the braised short ribs with a sriracha sauce (wasn't paying attention). Found the dish to be beautiful and flavorful and not too spicy. Wine list is good. Found a white from Oregon that none of us had before - after the offered sample we all enjoyed a bottle.

The noise level was really good - quiet enough for us to hear each other but noisy enough so that we didn't feel awkward with our frequent outbursts of laughter.

Parking is great.

More than likely we will go a 4th time sometime in the next year.

Recently celebrated my Mother's birthday there. Steak was amazing, so tender and flavorful and cooked perfectly. The service was great our waiter was personable but did not hover. Coffee was hot and good and martini was perfect! I will definitely be dining there again!

This place is top drawer in my opinion...always the best. I have now tried EVERYTHING on the menu, and there’s no way to go wrong!! Service is impeccable and friendly, not pretentious, and whether you’re looking to eat or to dine, this is the place. And to top it off, the prices are reasonable...you really do get your money’s worth.

We were meeting friends for a Saturday night dinner date. We were all first timers to the restaurant so the waitress was all too happy to guide us through the delicious menu. Her suggestions and knowledge of the menu and portion sizes was impeccable. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food. The entrees were mainly seafood but there were also non-seafood dishes. The desserts were great too..highly recommend the berry/peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream !

Glenwood Grill is on our regular rotation for weekend dining. Grab reservations early, as they are always busy. Consistently excellent food, good wine selection, great dessert--especially the cobbler! The only complaint I have is that there are too many good dishes, so I have difficulty deciding what to order.

We dine at the Glenwood Grill with friends three or four times a year and are never disappointed in the dining itself: fresh, delicious "new south" food, and a good wine/beer list. The venue is noisy, so conversation can be difficult--we found that a window table helps--and they seem to overbook a little, so that even with a reservation we have often waited 10-15 minutes. But unless you seek a truly quiet, intimate dinner, this is an excellent place, and we will continue to return regularly.

Always excellent. We tried it for Friday lunch this time. Food and service were the usual...wonderful. While we missed having a steak for the meal, we found a couple of other beef entrees that we loved. I had the Salisbury Steak special and it was well cooked, tasty with herbs and spices, with a light gravy loaded with mushrooms and onions. My husband had the burger, and they were able to modify it to fit his lactose intolerance. He reported it quite tasty, also. We had a very nice Robert Mondavi Cabernet. Desserts were great, too.

My wife and I read good reviews and wanted to try a restaurant with a moderate variety of southern dishes. We visited March 13th for a birthday celebration. As this was our first visit, our server John made sure we had a good overview of what was on the menu. We had the she crab soup, NC flounder and Angus beef short ribs. For dessert, we split the blueberry, peach and strawberry cobbler. Everything was delicious and we will be sure to visit again.

Always a great place. The only downside is that it gets really noisy if the restaurant is full. In big groups, you can’t hear anyone that is not right next to you. The staff is very friendly and service is wonderful.
