Sat outside and chairs weren't very comfortable. Also, the music being piped outside was very loud, so that escalated the general noise level because people were trying to talk over the music.

Server wasn't particularly positive, but I think she was very busy. Generally, the food was good...as always.

The Oswego Grill is a delightful place to dine. The food is consistently excellent.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
And Irma is our very favorite server. She is always "on top of things" and is so polite and friendly.

First time at this restaurant. Was pleasantly surprised by the reasonable prices. The food was outstanding, and I savored every bite. The food was prepared and presented so that the combination of flavors were superb. We will definitely be making Oswego Grill our go-to place!

There was a table next to us that was very loud. Also I ordered the prime rib and asked for med well. It was still pink in the middle. I asked to have it done a little more and what she brought back was fried on the grill and completely over done and tasteless. I was very surprised. Also for 30 prime rib dinner there was only meat and mashed potatoes. No vegetable. We chose the dinner instead of the sandwich because we wanted a good piece of meat. 2 of us got the prime rib dinner. It was like eating a shoe. I was embarrassed because I picked Oswego Grill.
Also the waitress ran off every time we ordered something that was out. Never told us it was out until we ordered something. Tell us up front so we don’t have to wait for you to keep coming back.
Very disappointed.

Good solid food every time. The cocktails are a little on the weak side but that’s pretty standard for restaurants.

The food was excellent as always; I had the Ahi Poke Bowl and my friend had the Chopped Salad—both bowls empty at the end of lunch (well almost empty, the was more ahi than I could handle.) Our server was delightful and efficient and our meals arrived promptly. Our only challenge was with the parking-complimentary valet parking was completely full so we circled waiting for someone to leave—it did work out, but I was surprised by the chaos when I arrived. No doubt I’ll be back and I will allow more time for parking.

The staff is wonderful and it was so nice to dine without looking at servers in masks 😷 The food was appealing to the eye, and best of all tasted yummy as well.

Great restaurant for lunch - our first time at one of the Oswego Grills. I'd read about parking, but they had complimentary valet parking. Our waiters, Andrew and Allison, were very helpful. The blood orange margarita and the cucumber and mint margarita were a little disappointing. We should have asked our servers for their suggestion. It was my husband's birthday and he got a complimentary huge banana split that he shared, along with a nice card signed by the managers and our waiters. Definitely plan to go back.

We were seated for over 10 minutes before our server came to our table. She had passed by several times as we sat there with no menus, water or any other beverages. We finally had to stop her on one of her passes by.

Server was attentive and caring. Chicken Marsala was delicious. Carrots were cut thick and not cooked well enough to even cut. It was so nice to see them doing a good business after months of being so empty due to pandemic. Servers are mostly new but well trained. Overall this is my favorite restaurant.

Our service was unfriendly and only responsive when we asked for something. A very odd service. We are regular diners at Oswego Grills and this was exceptional cold/rude/awkward service. We barely were looked at or acknowledged as customers. Our dining experiences usually are great wherever we go and we almost always enjoy the service and interaction with our service. Disappointing :(

We were carefully seated exactly as we had requested in the reservation. We had a wonderful server who got every detail right, including every alteration we requested—all from memory on her part. She was attentive and responsive. We all loved the food we had chosen. I love this restaurant.

Parking is getting to be a major deterrent to eating lunch at OG.

My Turkey BLT (no fries) seemed extraordinarily rich—too rich. It seemed soggy with fat and I could hardly move the rest of the day.

How about crispy bread and less fat?

I still recommend for the ambiance and service but not during lunch anymore due to parking.
