    Great service! Wait staff were so awesome. Food would be a 5 star except medium rare filet was done medium, and medium steak came almost well done. It was still tender and savory. Will return and recommend.

    Food was excellent. The restaurant is lovely. The only thing is upon arrival upstairs as we were looking around - we were greeted by someone not necessarily friendly directing us back to the hostess stand. I think that could’ve been handled quite differently.

    First time at Destination Grille. Probably won’t be back. Service was very good, but food was mediocre at best.

    We ate here a year ago and it was quite good food and great value. But this place has changed. Prices up, quality down. The sides were cold, the entrees were blah. Maybe pizza and sandwiches are Ok but I would avoid the dinner entree section.

    Our server was fantastic. Had great recommendation’s on what to order and food was tasty. Only disappointment is we went there for brunch and found out they no longer have breakfast as part of their regular menu. Such a bummer as they had great breakfast food when we went last time.

    The food was amazing, but our waitress could have used more help. Not her fault but she couldn't keep up. Example:we sat there quite awhile waiting to be noticed, then quite awhile to get silverware, gave up went and found someone to get us some so we could get to enjoying the ham and beef stations. Also felt way too pricey.

    The food was really good. Has a couple of items that could have been hotter. Wait staff was attentive and pleasant. We were seated on time. It was a good way to handle buffet service!

    We ordered the prime rib and the beef was tasty but not much to saw in regards to the sides and the au jus was truly bland. The service was interesting. When she was present it was good energy but then she literally spaced off or was forgetful. It was not the best service.
