    Steak was underdone and thought the cocktails we ordered just tasted like whiskey. Not worth what we paid for.

    We had brunch at Polaris Grill. The service, food and ambiance was great just as in previous dining experiences. The dining value for the expense is unbeatable in the area.

    My husband and I were celebrating our 44th wedding anniversary. We had exceptional service from the wait staff. The food was really good! I was just a bit disappointed that we weren't offered a jar of the 55 House Salad Dressing as a gift in honor of our wedding anniversary. We have been here several times over the years, and we have never had a bad experience at the Polaris Grill.

    Food is consistently good and service is excellent! Only drawback is the noise- Sunday early afternoon was crowded and both music and people were loud - don’t recommend if you’re looking for a quiet evening or conversation. Noticed others complained about the noise as well…otherwise, good restaurant!

    We arrived 15 minutes early and were seated immediately to wait for the other 3 who were coming from out-of-town. Waiter (Jordan??) was friendly, helpful, and attentive. Food was absolutely delicious. Menu was wonderful with a large variety of different types of food to select. Never felt rushed.

    We had a small birthday party for my mom and were seated in a semi-private room. There was one other party there (it seemed like a joint work/birthday party) - they were quite lively, but it never bothered us. Our server was amazing and kept checking on us. And the food was excellent - everyone had a variety of dishes and we all enjoyed it very much!

    Early New Years Eve dinner that was very good. Our waiter Mat was fabulous! Food was excellent perhaps served slightly fast. Drinks came quickly and were mixed to perfection. This was not our first visit to Polaris Grill and certainly will not be our last.

    Fried Green Tomato and Shrimp apetizer, very good 55 Salad, always excellent Short ribs and mashed potatoes, delicious. Not sure why but I was there when it first opened in 1997 before a concert at Polaris ampitheater and not since (other than to buy 55 salad dressing). Will be going there on a more regular basis.
