The service we experienced from the moment of being seated was completely unsatisfactory. Too many issues to list. The food and beverage manager offset our Christmas Eve dining experience by adjusting the bill, rightfully so, and we did appreciate that, however, after three different occasions of similar issues, we will not return to the limestone Grill.

This is the second year my family has celebrated Thanksgiving at The Limestone Grille. We were not disappointed. The management and staff keep things running smoothly. The servers were attentive, efficient and cheerful. In fact, everyone was pleasant from the hostess to the men at the carving stations. There was a wide assortment of hot and cold items. Many were traditional Thanksgiving dishes, but there was also fish and prime rib. The dessert table was extensive and varied. Coffee or tea was included in the price of the buffet. Overall, it was well worth the cost. We will likely return next year.

Excellent meal overall on a busy night with a surprise 10-top that snuck in just before us. Flank steak was well seasoned and cooked perfectly, salads were fresh, calamari was exceptional and highly recommended as a starter. The Old Fashioned on the cocktail menu delivered wonderfully to start the evening and moderately priced wines by the glass rounded out the meal. The short rib pasta was a highlight as well.

The place is nice and everything on the menu looked very good. I thought apps were better than the main courses and I heard the desserts were awesome. Our server was short with us and she seemed stressed out although we were there as the only table at 5:15 pm. She would put a plate down on the table and half the meal would slide off. I was not pleased with the service otherwise I'd have given it a better review.

Worst food I've been served at a restaurant above the fast food level. Date had the Brie risotto, which consisted of flavorless rice above clumps of cheese which would have required a blowtorch to access.

Should have known when we walked in at 7pm on a Friday, and only 4 tables were occupied, us and 3 parties of senior citizens. Locals have obviously figured out this place is worse than the chains across the street.

Avoid at all costs.

We were greeted with a reminder that it was wine Wednesday. We were able to purchase a nice bottle of wine for half off. The salmon was excellent but huge-enough for two. One of us chose the Limestone salad with grilled tenderloin. It was prepared well done as requested and still very tender. The bread is excellent! We did miss the opportunity to choose some smaller portions. Food taken home is just not as good. We did make another reservation upon leaving. Very nice choice instead of a chain restaurant. Also the service was excellent.

We had a party of 12 for a business lunch. We were shown to our table and possibly forgotten for a bit, as we were upstairs and they were very busy. We ordered our appetizers and food at the same time, just in case they forgot us again. After 40 minutes, the server came out to tell us that they were out of 2 or the 3 appetizers we had ordered and offered to replace one, in addition we were informed they were out of a few menu items. We received our appetizers slowly one by one and actually did end up with another one of the appetizers we were told they were out of. Entrees finally started to arrive approximately an hour and 45 minutes after we arrived and we ordered out dessert then so we could eat before heading back to work. Our lunch took 2 1/2 hours when we had really put aside 1 1/2 hours. The server was very apologetic and actually communicated very well through out the process. But in actuality the Manager should have stepped in to talk with us. Most of our food was delicious except for the Waldorf Salad with steak that was rare and smelled bad. Desserts were excellent.

Food and atmosphere great. Service was fair.
It was Mothers Day and college graduation. Waitress could not care any less.

In middle of meal, we realized there were bread plates but we never got bread. She forgot?

I would return but would make sure different waitress.

Unfortunately we dined here the night before mother's day and was disappointed to be given a limited menu. I ordered the filet mignon and was served an end piece the size of a medium meatball. We also had to send back the tuna appetizer that was bad smelled like ammonia. After looking forward to.dinning here, I was very disappointed.

Waited close to 40 minutes for food and there were only 4 groups in the restaurant. They said my lamb dish took a long time to cook. It was worth the wait -delicious ad were my dad's scallops

Limestone Grill provides a quiet environment to enjoy a leisurely meal. Table are spaced for comfort and privacy. It provided a varied menu with basic items and specialties of house and has attentive service
