Market Grille in Manchester, Connecticut is a nice combination between an upscale eatery and a casual restaurant. You can meet your coworkers there for drinks just as easily as you could bring your child to Market Grille for their birthday. The menu is mostly modern American cuisine, but there is also an extensive wine and beer list.



The four-cheese lasagna at Market Grille is very good. Two other very popular entrees here are the classic fish and chips and the stuffed domestic pork chop. If you like seafood, the raw bar here will not disappoint. Every day, fresh oysters of all varieties are offered.

    The food and our waiter were excellent. I had salmon and my wife had the prime rib. She always orders beef rare and that’s how it was served. She said it was very tender and flavorful. The salmon was cooked perfectly I requested to substitute my vegetable and it was no problem. The only reason I gave 4 stars for service is that the bar was very slow. We ordered cocktails as soon as we sat down but they were not delivered until after our entrees had been served. Tables were situated close together but this may have been due to the fact it was Mother’s Day and , due to weather, there was no outside seating. Obviously this increased the noise level but we were able to converse easily. We will definitely visit again.

     This is a review for the Mother's Day buffet brunch. Overall the options and type of food available were great, and all the food we tried tasted very good. Our service was great as always so the only issue I had was the cost of the buffet brunch, it was just under $50 a person And while that is probably why there are so many options that could be offered it is almost impossible for most people to eat enough food to make that cost worthwhile for everyone. No drinks were included in that cost either. So we had to pay extra. I feel a cost of $35-$40 a person would have been much more reasonable.

    Food was good but would have preferred to have a dining option besides just the brunch buffet. It was very expensive & not a good value for the members of our family who were over 10 & had smaller appetites.

    A sub par experience at what used to be a decent place. Won’t bother with details here but mostly service related. It’s really bothersome today that restaurants still want to charge the $30-$40/per entree but with chili’s or Olive Garden level service. Do better Mill Group.

    We waited over 45 minutes for our meals and then they forgot to bring bread when we asked for some and forgot to include half of my main dish (potato gnocchi) with the Mahi Mahi. Brought it out as a side 5 minutes later

    We had a wonderful dinner. Filet was cooked perfectly and the sauce was delicious. Eggplant Parmesan was crisp. Tomato sauce was perfect. We sat on the deck and the fireplace kept us toasty warm. We were facing west and it was a gorgeous sunset.

    Food was ok. Wish there were healthier options such as chicken other than with pasta. Or a dinner side salad with a choice of dressing. Welfleet Oysters were delicious but very pricey. Actually cheaper at the Capital Grille in Hartford. Tuna bowl was exceptional.

    Food quality was far inferior to all prior visits. Tenders were initially extremely cold Chicken Piccata was bland, chicken breast was a bit dry and artichoke was undercooked. The kids did enjoy their meals and the waiter was pretty friendly and attentive, however she did have to come back a total of 4 times and asked if the kids received the ice cream before we actually received it. It also seemed as if the menu has changed a bit because the selections seemed different with slimmer picking than what we had before. Overall not what we were hoping or expecting.

    The restaurant is beautiful, staff very friendly! It was Valentine's Day so there was a prefixed menu. Wonderful selections and great value! If I had to say anything bad, drinks took some time, salads came before drinks. A bit of a wait for the entrees and they ran out of chocolate covered strawberries that should have come with dessert. Also the desserts took some time. It was a very busy holiday so those issues were not horrible but could be watched for future special occasions.

    Ordered prime rib, they would not allow a choice of “fineness”, it was tough, overcooked! Definitely not worth the main price plus an “up charge “! It was supposed to be a romantic Valentines Day dinner, definitely fell short of expectations.😕

    Food was good, our waiter was outstanding. We were put past the bar into a side area. It was bright and cold and had no music. It was a stark difference from the bar or the dining area at Market Grille. Being Valentines Day I was hoping for a better ambiance. I requested two different areas but wasn’t given either. Overall it was good. Still very pricey for the portions.

    We had a wonderful lunch off the prix fixe menu which is a great value. We all started with the clam chowder which was delicious and had a lot of tender clams. All of our entrees were of great proportion and well made. The desserts were also great. Maureen, our server, was very attentive and pleasant.

    Special on Tuesday night for $25 was awesome. Get a starter, main course and desert. You also can get a bottle of wine for $20. They only suggestion is the server should tell you about the wine special before you order a glass of wine while you are looking at the menu. We did order the bottle but took home most of the wine. All food was delicious.

    It was a wonderful lunch. Waiter food service exceptional. The only thing was the music. It was some jazz type and it just didn’t fit the dining room style. It didn’t ruin lunch at all but the music should have stayed in bar area. Thank you and will always be back

    Our first time here. Decided to try Market Grille for Dinner before a show at the Funny Bone because it is so close. So happy we chose this restaurant! We tried the Faroe Island Salmon and the Gnocchi & Short Ribs. Both were delicious and presentation was attractive. Enjoyed the Peach and Cucumber-Basil Mocktails! Delightful! Would definitely recommend and come again.
