Our experience was quite mixed. The dining room is gorgeous, with great views of Mobile Bay and the Grand Hotel grounds. They need to work on logistics. There was more of a wait for a confirmed reservation than usual, and we noticed several other parties had the same issue. The wait staff were all very efficient and professional, but they obviously had some kitchen issues since our food waits were excessive as well. One entree was outstanding and one was just ok. Overall, they need to do better, situated in a first class resort with high prices. We plan to try them again in the near future and see if things improve.

We had a really nice time and the view at sunset was spectacular. We would go again in a heart beat and we would recommend the grill to our friends and family. The food was very good but can be found at many restaurants in Fairhope. Very good experience.

They’ve only been re-opened a few days, but c’mon Grand Hotel, get your act together!!! This hotel has been here forever. It’s the grand dame of the area, but Marriott, in its infinite wisdom, thought it needed renovating and closed it down for months only to reopen it with terrible service and cheap decor. Why did y’all open if you weren’t ready? Half of the customers walked out - it was that bad. Our waiter had not been trained AT ALL and was a nervous wreck!!! We waited over an hour just for drinks. And the decorator needs to be fired! Moral of the story- if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

No air conditioning so very warm, flys everywhere which is disgusting and food sub par at best. Ordered pasta and had to pay extra for bread you have to be kidding me. Service was ok no complaints with our waitress. A waste of a hundred dollars. Hotel claims to be high end, certainly not the Jubilee restaurant. Very disappointing especially since we came to celebrate Fathers Day.

This is a very enjoyable place to dine. All the staff is excellent and make you feel like you came to the right place.

Chef came out to chat with my wife who has specific desires for a plant strong meal. He was creative and made the experience fun for us all.

The seafood is superb.

We come often and are always happy we came.

Great view.

Price is what you should expect for quality dinning

The food is very good. My husband had a dozen oysters on the half shell. Small but very good. The amberjack was served over grits and greens with apple slivers very tasty.
I had the filet med rare done perfectly served over asparagus and creamy mashed potatoes
Desserts were bread pudding a signature dessert and creme burlee for Large portions. We took home doggie bags. And the meal was great again today.

Our hostess , ''Q'', was so friendly, and took great care to ensure that our dining experience was perfect! And the beautiful view of the bay made the atmosphere very calming! We have been here many times, and definitely will be back; a lovely experience that we will fondly remember. Thank-you

We ate here the other night for our anniversary. The food was excellent and so was the service. You really can't beat the view. Not only is the surrounding hotel gorgeous, but you get to enjoy waterfront dining. We were also told that there would be live music later, but we left before then. You must try the artichoke dip! So, so good.

We visit The Grand Hotel as often as possible- having grandchildren nearby makes it our perfect reason to come. There is much to love about the hotel and grounds, but The Saltwater Grill has also become a favorite place to dine. I love their use of local ingredients and attention to detail. Our visit a few days ago was for a granddaughters birthday dinner ( and stay at the hotel). We were given a water view table and Rebecca took excellent care of us - especially making our birthday girl feel extra special !!! Our dinner was excellent- the Umami Shrimp alone is worth a trip to Point Clear !
We look forward to dining there our next visit !

We love the Grand Hotel in Point Clear and try to visit there annually. Last year, we dined at the Grand Steakhouse and we were disappointed. This year, we decided to give their restaurants the benefit of the doubt and tried the Saltwater Grill. We were again disappointed. The seafood was not fresh from the gulf and for the price, we were expecting a little bit more. There was no salad or slaw and the presentation was pitiful. I had a broken up crab cake, the dirty rice looked like it had been served by a 4 year old as it was all over the plate and the shrimp had no flavor. It's a shame as we love dining on the grounds. We do however recommend their breakfast buffet. It is very, very good!
