Great indoor or outdoor dining. Excellent staff and can't say enough about how good the food is. And it as 1/2 price on glasses of wine! All in all a great experience that I highly recommend!

We enjoyed Sunday Brunch at Midtown Grille. The atmosphere is always vibrant and comforting. Every member of the staff is kind and accommodating. The outdoor seating is my favorite. Andy is an excellent server with just the right tableside manner.

Food was really good. The manager or owner took the time to come over and ask me how the food was. Unfortunately I was really hungry so no pic. But I ordered the Shorty Hash(short ribs with egg on top and red potatoes on the bottom) food was good just the potatoes weren't cooked all the way through. Manager apologized and spoke too the cook. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and I will be back.

Adore Midtown Grill....have eaten there for years and always good food. Quiet on a Monday evening, reasonable service, attentive but not overly so which was great. We sat inside as the outside was full...love the outside seating also. Highly recommend.

Service was bad. No flexibility for anything. The menu on the website for brunch was totally different than the menu when we arrived. We asked for things normally on the menu and was told there were no changes or substitutions allowed. Not a good experience at all. We were disappointed as we have enjoyed many good meals in the past at this restaurant.

Responded on May 24, 2021

Mike we update our website weekly and are sorry for your experience. Other sites pick up our menu and we have no way of altering what is on their sites. Our Brunch menu on our website is in fact correct. Again our apologies, we limit substitution's on our brunch presentation.

Service was good despite being short staffed. Food was good, although a little under seasoned. Website needed to be updated and we went in with certain expectations that would not have been present had the website been more clear.

Hadn't been back to Midtown Grill for a while so friends of me and my wife decided to go their for a relaxing evening and expected a very good dinner. Neither expectations were met. There was outside music which I guess was enjoyable by some but was much too loud for us and there was no way to lower the volume. The service was vey good with Amber very attentive to us the entire evening. The dinner got mixed reviews. Two of us had salmon and I understand it was very good with it being cooked as ordered and very tasty. On the other-hand, the two of us who had short ribs were very disappointed. The meat was over cooked, dry, and chewy which was very disappointing. Don't know if I'll return again.

Joe P, we do live acoustic music on our patio on Thursday from 8-10pm during patio season. We spoke with Amber (server) about your meal. Never was an issue brought to her attention. She even stated that everything was eaten? We strive for complete guest satisfaction. Had you let your server know you were not satisfied, we would have addressed the issue. We are sorry that you did not enjoy your meal. Again, had you let someone know we would have fixed the issue!

Each of us tried a different entree. Mahi Mahi and vegetables for me, shrimp and grits for one friend and crab cake sandwich for another. We all enjoyed our food. And, two of us took home shrimp and grits for our husbands. Though we were somewhat disappointed in the size of the portion on the shrimp and grits, our husbands still thought they were great. Men need a larger portion on lunch orders.

Sadly, the rib eye steak was grainy & not worth the $35. price. Snapper was good but fingerling potatoes & veges were mushy.

Food was definitely not up to usual standards here. Server ruined a great bottle of mature wine by pouring into glasses without regard to sediment, and he proclaimed to be knowledgeable of wine. Dined outside. Great weather.

Midtown Grille
Responded on April 28, 2021

Mr. Durham. We strive for excellent food and customer service. Never did you mention that you were unhappy with the food. Had we known we would have addressed the issue. As for the wine, we can not control the sediment in a bottle of wine that you brought in. We would have gladly decanted the bottle. We want our guest to leave 100% satisfied. Monday night is 1/2 price bottle night. We want our guest to have a memorable experience and tell their friends, not the internet!
