First time at Grille 29, although we had eaten in the building when it housed a different restaurant. We were impressed. It's large, but quiet. All 4 of us enjoyed our meals. It's casual dining.

Meals that might cost $30-35 elsewhere tend to be $19-$30 here. But, as far as we're concerned, no compromise on flavor, good preparation, and lovely plating.

We thought service was available enough but a little stiff and intrusive.

Will absolutely return.

Service was ok but quantity of food was very small portions. It was Father’s Day. Restaurant was not crowded. Reservation was at 3:15. No dip. No bread pudding. No crostini. My husband was very disappointed and not interested in returning.

It was Father’s Day so we made reservations for 3pm dinner. The restaurant was serving lunch still and they were out of 2 of the items we were interested in as appetizers: crab dip and calamari. We opted for bacon wrapped chicken and it was just okay, sort of rubbery.
We inquired as to availability of dinner menu for ordering and we were told that it would not be offered until 4pm which at that time was another 45 away. My husband ordered shrimp and grits and he liked it but was not happy with portion size. Kids burger and fries were good and I had the poboy that didn’t contain much shrimp. I would possibly go back and try something from dinner menu or brunch but my husband wouldn’t for portion size and that service day alone.

Went for Fathers Day brunch. Poor service, okay food, although the wait for our entrees was quite long and one plate of poached eggs was overdone of the three that were ordered. Our wait person without apology for the wait, offered to sell us a basket of assorted pastries to tide us over while we waited for our entrees. The food, once it arrived, was unappealingly plated. The seafood in the over cooked frittata was skimpy and tasteless. As we were wrapping up our meal, a bus person took a terrible tumble with a full tray of dishes. Thankfully no one seemed injured, but we witnessed no one from management ask him if he was okay. Not a good brunch experience for what we paid.

I brought my guy there for brunch, it was his first time consuming, (I’m a connoisseur of the company) and every time it’s always a good experience. However, this was the first time we waited almost an hour for our food and it wasn’t busy, but it was superb as usual.

I was skeptical at first because when we walked in there were a couple of waitresses at the entrance and no one bother to greet us or acknowledge that we were there. The hostess finally came and she took us to our table. Our waitress was awesome. The food was amazing. The waitress turned everything around for me. I wish I could remember her name because I would make sure my friends sat in her section.

One of their best dishes is the beef tips. At our last trip, the tips were not up to standard, but this time, excellent. Salmon was excellent as well. One of the few restaurants where you can carry on a conversation. Service was very good as well.

This was our second visit to Grille 29. The food has been delicious both times! The staff is very friendly! The only con we found is the noise level. We understand that isn't something you can necessarily control. We don't mind it as much when we start eating because the food is so good! We will definitely be back again!

My sister and I arrived at our reservation time and were seated in a reasonable amount of time. The hostess was very unfriendly and never once smiled or seemed genuine. The value was poor and the food quality was unacceptable. My salmon was over cooked and under seasoned. I ordered the blueberry lemon cheesecake, which was horrible. You can’t put blueberry paste and and lemon slice on top and call it blueberry lemon. I was very disappointed and do not recommend this restaurant.
