Excellent food and service!!
We arrived 40 minutes before our reservation and asked if PG could seat us early. The manager was very kind and said he would try, and then came out to our car when a table opened. The salad, halibut and prime rib were superb! Calamari was so-so, not a light crispy panko like I would expect. Creme brûlée also was B+ . The temperature good and caramelized top was good but the custard was a little grainy instead of a perfectly smooth texture. We had a table in the bar area, and it felt a little too close, and we could not avoid hearing loud conversations at the bar, that eventually led to angry words between two strangers at the bar. This eruption was not the fault of PG, just a couple rude customers. Our server was excellent!
Polaris Grill has good salad (55) and soups (Aztec chowder; Mushroom bisque). The whipped butter that comes with the bread is very good.
Everything else is just ok, however.
The shrimp cocktail is $16, and it’s awful. It’s Gummy, not crisp. It’s translucent, not white. It doesn’t ‘snap’ when you bit into it. I don’t know enough about shrimp to know if it’s just not good quality, or if it’s just how they prepare it, but I would not recommend it
In general, I’d say they need to freshen up their menu.
Food and Service in the bar area was fantastic. The bar was hopping so it was noisy but it was a Friday evening. We have been there during the week and the service and food has always been great. We enjoy the happy hour especially after a tough day. Can stop in to get an appetizer and a beer.
Always the best food and service..great place to go
Love this menu and the quality of food and service. A favorite of mine for a long time and they never disappoint. Frankly, they don't get enough credit .
Food and service was excellent. Will definitely dine here again!

Exceptional food and serve!
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Will be returning!
Great food and was very fast. Our food was out before we knew it
The service we received was exceptional! I enjoyed the filet cooked perfectly, the two New York strips were a little tough, medium and medium rare. Large side portions of vegetables and potatoes. We will make return visits, a favorite, something in the menu for everyone.
Always excellent! Dinner for three....felt very safe. What a great place. Service excellent.
Outstanding meal and service! Start to finish💯

In the 16 years we've lived here, we've never had a disappointing meal or service at the Polaris Grill.
Wonderful place to celebrate Valentines Day! The food was AMAZING!
The food was exquisite! I enjoyed my service as well.
We sat in bar area so the service was a little slow. The ratio of servers to customers was not good.
Nothing great. Food ok Server wasn't around much. Needed to flag down others for condiments, ect. We have eaten here for several years and usually ok. Better restaurants nearby.
Waiter was very congenial and the food was very good. It’s too bad restaurants can’t create a better atmosphere due to the pandemic. I’m sure they would if they could.
Easy to get into w a reservation
