This place has a great vibe and puts you in a good mood upon arrival. It is a bit noisy but that's a sign of a good bar. Food was simple and good. The lamb lollipops were a hit at our table. All in all a great , easy place for a Friday night.
The ambiance is cool, service was good....food was ok. Stick to bar food. I tried to order a salad, it was super bland...absolutely no flavor. Kids ordered chicken finger and fries and they were good. It was pricey for a “family” outing. I would go back for drinks.
Reminds me of some of the pubs I visited in Scotland. Tasty comfort food, good brews, and subdued light.
Loud, slow service, and Luke warm food.
Enjoyed the neighborhood feel. Food was good and friendly atmosphere.
Food is ok, but not great. Servers were nice and diligent. Overall, a good but not great place.
If you're under 30 and looking for a loud bar with over-priced ho hum food, this joint is fine. Over 30 and want more than "fries with that"? There are many dine eateries within walking distance.
It's a reliable place; you can get more than bar food there, since they offer dinners. The fish and chips tasted very fresh; the chili was good, but a bit dry. But their salads are fresh and abundant. The prices are reasonable. It's one of our main go-to places when we're attending a movie at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute; it’s walking distance from there. The service is prompt and friendly.
Live this place!!! Great neighborhood pub. They make a great martini - one of the few places I know! Burgers are awesome so is the rest of the menu. Check it out!!
The chili is fantastic. Interesting beer variety. Great spot to meet for a casual meal.
A very enjoyable experience. Couldn't have been better. The service was first rate and the food was spot on.
Good value, good service and nice selection for a neighborhood hangout. Very convenient for before or after movie.
Batch’s with 1/4 cup of chicken, 1/4 cup of cheese -2 cups of chips $15? No thanks
Four of us grabbed a quick bite before a movie and ate upstairs. Noise level low :) for the older hearing challenged. Polite, prompt and pleasant wait staff.
Food was good. Service was great. Brunette bartender was distractingly pretty. I will definitely go back if I am in the area.
Good food and service sitting at the bar. Had a reservation for 4 at 6:30 pm on a Saturday and probably wasn't needed. Beers on tap could use improvement. Been here several times and have no real complaints.
My wife sent her shrimp tacos back after the first bite, horrible. My Fish and Chips were oily and soggy, should have seen red flag when I saw the owner/manager bringing in take out from Zoes.
Cute local pub with good food. Ate downstairs. Really friendly service.
Solid neighborhood pub kind of place with a cast of characters as guests, including some classic loudmouth drunks and cranky old farts.
Room to improve on service and food
The food at Grog Grill is good pub food. The service was outstanding however. I've gotten worse service at restaurants that are much more expensive.
Average bar food. Nothing special. Had to call a few days after because they never marked us as “seated” to get our open table points.
Food was excellent and service superb. A perfect neighborhood spot.
Our appetizers were 45 minutes late in being served. We were offered nothing as an excuse other than that the manager told our server to say the kitchen was backed up. No apology, no free drink, etc. Then to add insult to injury, my wife asked for extra pickles with her hamburger. Not a big deal until the check arrived and we were charged 50 cents extra for a few sliced pickles. Are you kidding? We won't be back.
Fun time -
Great flatbreads and ahi tuna appetizer
Good portions of food prepared to order. Everything was delicious.
Prices were good
Really great margaritas! Food was decent, & service was awesome!
Better than average pub food
Fantastic service and food
Great pub. Food is good and good drink options. Plan to return!
The food was American bar food along with Irish pub entrees. That said, the food was very good! I really enjoyed it!
The beer list was also very comprehensive, which was exciting particularly for smaller joint that mostly seats college students and their families.
The service was very friendly and helpful. However, they were not terribly attentive. We asked for more water and a box, and waited 10 minutes, and had to ask again. A simple mistake, but really the restaurant was not that busy so I am not sure why we were overlooked.
I do want to emphasize that the staff and management were kind and helpful though. They outside of the minor lack of attention we were given, they were awesome. Unfortunately, I got my pants caught on a loose nail that had been missed during a repair of the booth we were sitting in. The management was kind enough offer me cash or a discount off my bill to cover the value of the pants, I didn't even have to ask!
I choose to have it deducted off my bill, suggesting $20 as the value of the pants, but the management was kind enough to take $30 off. The is GREAT customer service.
Because the of kindness of the staff/management, the quality of the food, and the great beer menu, I would definitely return to this restaurant .
It's average pub fare. Nothing horrible and nothing amazing.
Great place for bar food that is different. Like avocado fries! Southwest salad with a real kick!
Great meal, as usual! We love it here! Food is consistent and service is always great!
Our Open Table reservation was not honored. My ginger ale tasted watered down and I was told "that's how it tastes." Never received a salad that was supposed to go with my entree. If you're a college student who wants to get drunk and doesn't care what your food tastes like(as long as you are a rich college student) this is your place,
Great dinner as usual! One of our favorite local places for a burger and a beer.
Typical pub fare. Servers were friendly and stopped at are table when needed. I had the salmon burger, date had fish and chips, and we shared the fried mozzerella appetizer(Which was the best part of the meal).
For the second year in a row, my family met before The Sound of Musoc sing a long across the street. There was a minimal staff on which led to a very nice man being incredibly overworked and service running very slowly. Additionally, the drinks and food took far too long to be served and we were only checked on because we needed to ask for assistance multiple times
One of our top picks for lunch when visiting the area. Good food, great service and a nice neighborhood bar.
