    The food was disappointing. Haddock sandwiches were mushy and had no flavor. Winter salad had a lot of kale greens but stingy with squash, beets and goat cheese. Won’t be back

    One of our entrees was not up to snuff. For which we were not charged and we were provided with a complimentary dessert. We are long time customers and certainly will not let this minor hiccup deter us from returning. It was out of character but it did happen.

    Pork chops were dry and very overcooked. Strip steak was a flavorful steak , but was cooked medium (+) instead of med rare which is how it was ordered. We asked the hostess to bring a slice of cake for our friends 88th bday , she responded she would , but nothing was brought out. We really liked the atmosphere and layout of the restaurant.

    Ordered halibut but it tasted like haddock. Not a big deal except for the price difference halibut is a lot more expensive.Have had halibut there numerous times and it always was a thick piece of fish. This was real thin and did not taste like halibut and waitress did not offer to fix the issue. Chicken in the salad tasted like a cutlet which it never was in the past. Overall highly disappointed as normally the food is quite good. May stay away for a while until they get their act together.

    Was a little disappointed that the drinks we were hoping for were not available because of the taps were not functioning,!so settling for something available was just ok… Our waitress was very good, none of the above disappointment was directed at her.

    Hi Keith, yes unfortunately for a day our tap system was not functioning and we're sorry our variety of bottled and can brews didn't quench your thirst. Hope to have you back for a cold one soon!

    We were very happy to be seated in the garden room; a fairly quiet and pleasant atmosphere. As usual we loved the chowder and my husband loved his burger. I had the winter salad with chicken. It was not bad but not the best I've had at A G.

    Excellent venue. Seafood was fresh. The PEI mussels were small and tender, but could have been served with a toasted focaccia type bread as opposed to a roll for "dunking", but overall good! The Seafood Pomodoro was excellent, highly recommend. The Ice Cream Sundae was outstanding!

    I ordered the crab cake & brussel sprouts. The crab cake was really mushy. Not a distinct crab flavor, could have been anything. The spicy sauce was too spicy for the dish as well. The Brussel sprouts weren’t sprouts they were hardly any full sprouts (maybe 3 in the serving), primarily loose leaves that were super oily. Very disappointing.

    Hi Christine, thank you so much for sharing your experience and feedback! Very disappointing to hear about your food as I can assure you that is not the norm - people LOVE our crab cake and brussel sprouts! We will take a close look at both menu items to make sure this doesn't happen again. Thank you again

    I made a reservation 5 days prior for my friends 50th birthday dinner, there was 3 of us. When we arrived we were seated right away the hostess sternly told us we only had two hours because they had a reservation after us. As you can imagine, this completely turned me off as this was only my second time at this restaurant my first time I ordered a lobster stew and I got a c chowder. So they had to get me the correct stew. And there was no compensation. This was my second time at the Atlantic Grill, and two of my girlfriends first time. We were all a little disappointed with them, rushing us out before we even sat down. Our waitress wasn’t super friendly. We ordered $50 meals the fillet I ordered mine medium rare and it came out medium well not one inch of red dry as a bone so I had to wait for them to re-cook it when they re-cooked it they took my whole meal the first time, they gave me the wrong sides . My two friends were done eating their dinner, and I had just started mine. It was better, but it definitely wasn’t cooked medium rare. There was no compensation the waitress took a while to ask us for if we wanted a second drink so we chose to just leave when in any other circumstance we would’ve ordered a dessert to sing happy birthday to my friend. And since it took them so long to fix my meal, we didn’t really didn’t have much time to stay beyond the two hours, so we just wanted to leave. It was disappointing, especially since there was no compensation we paid full price for our meals. Not even a dessert or anything was offered.

    We have always had delicious food at Atlantic Grill - the fish is typically very fresh and cooked perfectly. This time the swordfish was not good - it was about 1/4" thick and somewhat tough. Although I didn't complain (just didn't eat it) the restaurant did not charge me for it so that was appreciated. The salmon was good, however. Since this was my first negative experience I would go back and give it another try - hopefully it was just an isolated incident.

    Service was excellent. Food and ambience were just ok. Food was not up to the usual standards. The so-called “garden room” was not garden like. It was like sitting in a hallway with some tables thrown into it. One table was extremely noisy and their noise dominated the room in a bad way.

    Our party of four had an enjoyable evening. Food was excellent, our waitperson seemed rushed - it was New Year's Eve, after all. I didn't care for being instructed by the hostess that we had to finish & be out in and hour & 45 minutes. I understand the seating crunch on a busy night, but her approach was off-putting.

    Another great meal! Started with oysters which were perfect in size and delicious. We had the pork chops, scallops and pumpkin ravioli and everything was cooked just right. AG has become a favorite!
