We’ve been here twice for brunch in the last two weeks.. it’s DELICIOUS! I love the pancakes and bacon. My mom didn’t have good luck with her fried eggs though they came out too runny both times (she wanted them over hard). Our server was decent this time but the guy we had the first time was AMAZING. Overall 9/10

We just bought a house in Durham and haven’t officially moved there yet from TN but we’re in town getting some things done. As I used to live in Cary and frequent midtown grill, and he had never been there, I thought it would be a great place to go. He loved it! And we are both vegetarians and had veggie options on menu so we found great food! Service was excellent too. We will be back.

It was a group of 5 and every single order came out wrong or missing food and had to be remade. The waitress Amber was amazing and so sweet. You could tell she was embarrassed they screwed up this bad.

Anonymous, Denise Iheanachor, reservation It was 58 outside and 72 in the restaurant. Group complained of being cold and we moved your group. The young lady delivering the food missed the correct seats and all the food was delivered to the wrong person. We recooked all complete with all of the requested substitutions on each plate. All of the food was then eaten and enjoyed. Discounts were given and your group was taking pictures after lunch in our private room. Your group all left happy.

Hello, We are confused? We rotate our menu seasonally and use the same menu template with rotating "blackboard" features. The Friday you dined we offered a full menu along with our rotating soup, tomato bisque. A Red Snapper feature, an off menu filet feature and a new charchuterie board sourced with All local NC meats and cheeses. Our menu is updated weekly online. We are sorry you did not have a 5 star experience.

We had great service via phone and at the table.
The food was exceptional, and we would definitely dine there again.
The only issue I had with the restaurant is price, and the added gratuity. Mind you, the food was excellent, and that is not the issue. But $240.00 for two Thanksgiving turkey meals, two drinks, two pieces of pie and a petit filet is a bit excessive. You can buy a whole turkey for about $18.00.

I also am irritated when the tip is added to my bill.
I usually tip 30-35%
Wait staff works at a reduced hourly rate and I enjoy giving a large tip.
But when they make whatever judgment they choose and feel a need to extract 20% (or any amount) from me, that is all they will get. It is offensive.

With those two exceptions we very much enjoyed our dining experience.

Thanksgiving menu was limited, but delicious. I had the turkey entree with included soup or salad and dessert. The sweet potatoes were outstanding. My husband had the petite filet which was cooked perfectly and was very tasty. We had multiple servers and we were checked on by the manager. Even though it was Thanksgiving, there were limited guests due to Covid and we safely sat outside.

Food was good but came out cold, or I should say not hot. Steak and mashed potatoes. Service was fine. We sat outside, which was also fine. Price on the high side for quantity of steak received. I ordered a rib eye, and it was plated as strips of rib eye. Overall I will go back but will go other places first.

On Wednesday November 11 I had lunch with four friends at Midtown Grille. I had requested a round table near the back of the restaurant. The location we were given was perfect, the service was attentive and the food delicious and reasonably priced. This happened to be my third visit to Midtown Grille in about six weeks and I was pleased with my visit each time I went. Thank you!
