We made reservations last minute for New Years Eve for dinner. Great monk fish special and craft beer selection . Live music was fabulous with Tyler on guitar and vocals with country flare. Lots of fun and entertaining! !
Never got to enjoy a meal there. When we arrived, I was told there was a 45 minute wait. I told the hostess I had made a reservation on open table, but she said nothing was open until later. Very disappointed that we drove up there and was told this. We've always enjoyed dining here, but now I hesitate to make a reservation and find out once we arrive that we have to wait so long. At least have the courtesy to call and let us know in advance when there's a problem.
The stuffed salmon was delicious.
Decent close place to get dinner with the kids. Service is always friendly and attentive. Good live music on Friday (I think) evening makes for a change from just a normal dinner out. Food is pretty good- not great so have not been back as much as prior years with other local options available now.
We were a party of six. Two people had the Ruben, it was very fatty. They could not eat it, the server did not offer to make good for it.
We always have a fabulous time at the Mainland Grille. We often go for trivia night, which is Wednesdays and we always enjoy our visit.
What a fantastic Meal. The crab stuffed salmon was a perfectly combined gastro-nomical treat. My wife had the amazing chicken dish with a balsamic glaze. We eat out all the time and she was amazed by this sauce. My son ordered the chicken wings in boneless buffalo and a kids pizza. He loved the wings but didn't care for the Pizza sauce. Too chunky for him. Overall it was an amazing meal and we recomend it to anyone looking for a great meal and night out.
Enjoyed our meal so much last week, we went back for another visit. Enjoyed the food and Amber, our waitress, remembered us from last week. Great service and good entertainment. This could become our Friday night hangout.
Waitress was awesome..very friendly. Food was so good. Loved the onion soup and crab cakes. And my drink was perfect Malibu bay breeze. My sistersiater was in from ouout of town and we had a good time.
Delicious calamari, as well as the seafood flatbread and the eggplant pesto on ciabatta special. Nice live entertainment, as well.
We love this restaurant. The food is consistently delicious. Fresh seasonal ingredients, really good risotto. The staff is always friendly and attentive.
Nice neighborhood restaurant. Amber, our server, was great and very accommodating. The pretzel cheese soup was yummy and both of our entrees were good-sized and tasty. We'll be back:)
The ribs treated great and the meat just fell off the bones. Truly top notch.
Nice lunch spot. Good for an easy quick dinner as well.
We enjoyed the food but it did take a long time and there were very few people there.. Our waitress was good.. No issues there.
This is our favorite local dining spot. The weekly specials are always creative. The chef uses seasonal ingredients in ways that bring out the flavors. We are never disappointed.
When I first entered I thought, uh oh, not going to be special but the waitress was friendly and the food surprisingly good. I'd go back.
We eat here (not often enough) occaisionally for dinner...it's right in our neighborhood. The food and service are always good and the last few Saturday's we ate dinner there, they had live entertainment. Usually guitar players, but, very good! Every time we eat here, I wonder why we don't do it more often! Go, you'll enjoy it!
Our party of 6 met here and it was a great pick to start off our celebration. The atmosphere was very enjoyable with the entertainment and the service and food was great. Later everyone said the pick for dinner was outstanding.
The Mainland Grill has a great menu and terrific weekly specials. The chef uses fresh and local ingredients and is very creative.
