Great food and service
We sat on the patio the first Saturday after restaurants opened for dining. Polaris Grill did a great job with their patio, and inside the restaurant, to allow diners to feel safe and enjoy their meals. I would recommend dining at the Polaris Grill. The food was great as it always has been.
We sat at the bar and had great service from Justin. One of the owners came by to talk with us.
It was great to be back out to dinner and the meal was outstanding.
This was my first time dining out since the shut down. Polaris Grill is always good and we were not disappointed. They had taken the necessary precautions and the food was delicious.
The food was excellent, the service excellent...Every time I dine here I have a great experience!!
They did a excellent job in this environment and the food was perfect. Service was outstanding!
It was our first restaurant outing since the virus nonsense started. We sat on the beautiful patio and Traci was our server. Everything was PERFECT! My wife raved about the Salmon Oscar and my daughter and I had the Filet Oscar. I highly recommend the Pane de Grill (sp?) as a starter-we love it.
It was wonderful.
They have removed some of the tables, installed plexiglass barriers between booths and all staff were masks. It was a great first day back for dining😀
As always everything was terrific. It's so nice coming in and so many of the staff recognizing us and being so genuinely friendly. All of the food was prepared perfectly.
Our meals at Polaris Grill were wonderful as always. I was planning on coming back on Wednesday unfortunately was informed they would be closing at 9pm that night. We love Polaris Grill and look forward to our return visit in the near future.
We had brunch at the Polaris Grill. I had a delicious omelette with cheese grits and my husband had the breakfast quesadilla. It was a nice spin on brunch. And our waiter Jacob was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Excellent service. We will definitely go back.
We have dined at Polaris Grille numerous times and have always experienced first class service and excellent food. This is a credit to the owner and management of this restaurant!
We had a very good service, friendly staff. Setting was excellent.
The menu selection was the mixed plate steak, salmon and crab cake. Enjoyed everything except the crab cake not much flavor, the one item that needed the sauce.
We had come for the lamb chop we had a month prior, disappointedly it was no longer offered.
Overall it was a very good meal with friends.
the Marti Gras menu is an annual treat and close to legitimate
Went for my Birthday dinner; saw the Mardi Gras menu online and was immediately ready! It was an incredible experience! Food was over the top delicious! Tracy, our server, gave about 130% to us in helpful conversation, great recommendations, and an overall wonderful experience. We are definitely planning to return to try items off the "normal" menu (as others in our party had, and they looked wonderful!). I'd driven by it often but never stopped in, and that will definitely change! Let me add we live in Lancaster, so it's a trip for us - but it's well worth it!
We started off with the sampler appetizer, pane de grill was awesome as were the chicken fingers. Crab cakes were so tiny but tasted ok. Definitely not worth the $25 dollars. Wife got a martini cocktail and it was so tiny of a glass its really sad considering the cost. Wife got Salmon salad and it was ok. She didnt like the salmon because it was cooked long enough to her liking. I got the Salmon oscar, it was also just ok. The meal just seemed rushed as far as the cooking. Waitress was busy but did a decent job.
Overall the dinner was just ok, will we go back? probably but it wont be for a while.
Another great experience at the PG!
Walleye was great! Daughter’s pasta was as well. Will definitely return.
We were celebrating my husband’s birthday. There were four of us. The food was very good, except my son’s steak was not cooked as ordered. They were very busy that night and it took a while to get our waitress to come near our table to let her know the problem. By the time she did, the rest of us had already pretty much consumed our meal. She offered to comp my sons meal and and have the kitchen cook him another one to take home. A few minutes later the manager came by to find out what had happened and also offered the same thing… Which we accepted. Later, the waitress brought my husband a jar of their famous salad dressing to take home. This experience will not keep us from going back because the food there has always been very good. It does tend to get pretty loud in there. I’m sure the reason we couldn’t get our waitresses attention was because it was so busy so we don’t fault her for that and we still tipped her on the amount of the full bill before the comp because it certainly wasn’t her fault that the steak was not cooked to order.
Fish & chips, salad were delicious. Great service! Thanks again for a wonderful dining experience!
Our waitress was so professional and attentive. She made my daughters birthday very special.
We were there for a business lunch and our server was exceptional!
We have been coming to Polaris Grill for years. The brunch is excellent and even better when their patio is open. They also have a great happy hour in the bar. Make sure you try the Pain de Grill.
Only suggestion is to dump that awful Cardiff wine-Don't order it-it's terrible.
Great food, good service. Drinks were slow-my only complaint! Great value, would return
Great food! Halibut was wonderful! It is s bit loud in there so gets hard to hear but otherwise great!!
The Salmon was SPECTACULAR!!!
The service was great and the price was very reasonable. We will return.
We've enjoyed the Grill since it was started. The food and service has always been outstanding. The Polaris Grill is probably the most consistently outstanding restaurant in the area. The food is always fresh and the service is always first class. I always take my guests to the Grill because I know the experience will be exactly what it's supposed to be.
Comfortable atmosphere for a date night to allow conversation!
Walleye Almindine is one of the best meals ever. Sauce was great, fish cooked perfectly. Will be back
I was disappointed that they wouldn't take my coupon when I showed it to them on my phone. It had to be a printed copy, I was told. I wish they would have said that in the email they sent me. So diners need to be aware their coupon will need to be printed or dinner may have an unwelcome aftertaste.
Great food and service
Loud. Expensive. Salmon was good.
Food and service was rushed. Salad came out right after appetizer. I was still eating my salad when main course was served. Server acknowledged everything came out quick but she explained she put our order in quick before other large orders. I would of liked the option to wait a little longer for main course instead of getting overwhelmed with my food
Great food and service
Food and service was great
Vanessa was an excellent server. She kept our glasses full & was very attentive. Food was served hot and came out quickly. One of our favorite dining spots. We can count on an overall great dining experience.
Waitress Vanessa was outstanding. Mardi Gras and regular menu offered excellent dining options. Manager Darren was attentive when we had a problem
Great happy hour appetizer deals
