    We had the Mango halibut and it was moist and flavorful with a sweet glaze. Love grits, but my friend hates them, she got roasted redskin spuds, very good. Steamed veg a bit boring, but cooked perfectly.

    Polaris Grill's food and menu choices are always excellent. Our party ordered a variety of specialty cocktails, appetizers, and entrees and there was not a single thing that was not delicious for all 4 of us. We were even impressed with simple things like the flatbread we ordered - above the standard flatbread. The restaurant is classy and beautiful, not stuffy, quiet, clean, and there is a beautiful patio. We were also highly impressed with our server, Emily. She was professional, attentive and knowledgeable. We never had an empty glass or a stack of plates sitting on our table for long.

    A lot of their meal options have heavy sauces (even the fish) so it was hard to find a lighter option. Overall a good meal and very good service. I will go back

    Food came out quick and was delicious. Our server at the bar was wonderful. He made great recommendations and it was probably one of the best meals we’ve had in awhile. The key west salmon dish he recommended was phenomenal.

    Very busy due to Father’s Day and Sunday evening. Overall our visit was good. Food (crab cakes & pork chops) was very good. I love the bread and herb butter! We took a dessert to go. Only issue was the noise, quite loud, difficult to converse. Hope to go back for lunch soon.

    I love this place for its great patio and the crab cake salad. Great cocktails as well. If they had more vegetarian options for my husband, we might visit more often.

    Overall it was good. The current menu pricing is decently more expensive than what is listed on this app. So that was a surprise. Not the end of the world, but definitely a surprise.
