Eldridge House Grille
Wait staff was exceptional and attentive. This establishment had just gone through renovations and we thought we would try their new menu. The new decor is lovely. We did not know that they had lost their liquor license but BYOB was encouraged. Menu looked very intriguing with interesting flavor combinations. Execution of the dishes was a little bit lacking. I ordered a wedge salad which was slightly overdressed but absolutely delicious. I had ordered a carbonara dish and the wine (alcohol) was not completely cooked out which was a bit off-putting. It wasn't overly rich which was pleasant, but not burning off the alcohol gave it a bit of an odd flavor which would otherwise have been spot on. We had ordered a couple of appetizers, a fondue and crab cakes which were both pleasant. The fondue was more like a queso which I am good with, but don't call it fondue unless you serve it that way, pot and all. The crab cakes were good but the dipping sauces just did not quite compliment the cakes. My husband had ordered chicken which was served with green beans flavored with smokey sweet bacon. However the vegetable dish came out with way too much bacon for the green beans. The bacon overwhelmed the dish. He said the chicken was delightful moist and delicious. It was served with a cauliflower mash that was rather bland. Coffee was spectacular and is often the most overlooked item, but it was spot on and delicious. My spouse had pie and ice cream and was delighted. In all, the experience was good, portions are overly generous, the food is basically done well but flavorings toppings are not executed well. For a mid-priced place you will eat well. If you're looking for a fine dining experience, I think the kitchen staff is still learning and growing. Perhaps just an off night for them.
Saved lots of money because they have no liquor license. The food was very good--and 1/2 price Monday burger night can't be beat!
I took my girlfriend here for dinner the night of our formal dance, it was a very calming and comfortable setting for a fancy dinner. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the food was amazing.
Our waiter was so sweet and helpful. Overall we had a wonderful experience!
Excellent! the food the staff, everything was top notch!
THEY DIDNT HAVE A LIQOUR LOCENSE AND I COULDNT HAVE CHARDONNEY!!! Pretty annoyed.
Food was delicious! Service was good. The only negative was no alcohol could be served due to some paperwork/license being in limbo.
We would definitely return. Next time we hope to partake in some cocktails with dinner.
They were understaffed that night. Otherwise, good experience.
Sitting in bar area on a Friday night was very loud.
I made reservations at the Grille for a quiet birthday celebration. When we arrived, we were told that the KU football office had usurped the entire restaurant and as a result, we were seated in the bar. It was so noisy, and certainly had no atmosphere, that we could not even carry on a conversation. We should have been called and given the choice to cancel
Our meal was excellent. 3 of us, each found the meal and service quite good. Service was most attentive to our wishes. The entire experience was exceptional.
Everything we ate was delicious. I especially loved the Lobster Mac & Cheese. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Overall a wonderful experience and will be coming back again!
Our waiter was awesome. Food was great with value.
We had a very nice meal with friends. The historic Eldridge Grill is lovely after a recent refresh. We asked for a quiet table since one of the party has a hearing impairment and they gladly obliged. Our waitress Maddie was friendly and professional. Our food was beautifully presented and flavorful. The pot roast and French Dip were delicious. We will return.
we love dining here!! Great food..great staff..great views...
We made sure our server knew that we were heading to the KU game and she made sure that we got served in plenty of time to make it to the game. Food was great!
Upscale but relaxed feel – one of the few places you can hold a conversation with your dinner partners. Everything ordered from the menu (diverse choices) was excellent and reasonably priced. Homey food such as pot roast and caesar salad was just as good as the ribeye and roast chicken. Service was well-timed and friendly.
An enjoyable anniversary dinner! Service was superb. Food couldn’t have been better. We love visiting the Eldridge. See you soon!
The food was delicious and portions sizes were perfect for more than one meal. I very happily woke up the next day to my crab cakes and salad, and the left over Kale, apple salad I added salmon to. My daughter wasn't too pleased with the Macaroni, and I tasted it, a little too grainy, but they promptly took it off my tab and asked about a substitution. Wonderful ambiance and stylish decorations. It was the perfect escape this single mom needed midweek.
only issue was there seemed to be a absence of Red Wines that night -not restocked from busy weekend perhaps.
Excellent food, moderate pricing
I hate to post this because the food is good. I had salmon which was fresh and very tasty- and my husband enjoyed his halibut. BUT- service- TERRIBLE. We ordered a second round of drinks at the beginning of the meal, they never came. In fact, our waitress completely disappeared. We finished dinner and couldn’t find her to get the check. We ended up going to the hostess stand to ask for our check, then some guy brings our drinks to us at the stand!! WHAT???!!!! It took over 15 minutes of standing at the hostess desk to even get someone, anyone to bring our check. Ridiculous!!!! We won’t be back and would not recommend this place AT ALL
Great food and atmosphere. Service was great as well.
The lettuce for the wedge salad was old, yellow in the middle and brown on the outside leaves, the asparagus was average, one piece was old and yellow, the mashed cauliflower tasted ok but was not mashed, like we expected, the salmon was good and the shrimp appetizer was good, the service was excellent.
We probably wont be back.
Absolutely dreadful. Staff in a half empty restaurant seemed overwhelmed. Sat there an hour and a half with no food. While on the way out waitress tried to tell us they'd be cooking the food "any minute now"
Very nice birthday dinner!
We enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Service excellent. Will dine here again. We had the rotisserie chicken and it was very good.
Great food, Great service, nice atmosphere. We have dined here because we like it so much!!
This turned out to be the perfect restaurant for our lunch plans. We wanted to have a quiet and pleasant ambience setting for a lunch date with an acquaintance from the past. The menu had great choices for all of us. Our server and the manager were attentive to our needs. We comfortably visited and enjoyed the surroundings. We look forward to returning.
Wonderful atmosphere. Our waiter (Cameron) was attentive, cordial it was fine until a large party appeared & the noise level went way up. We could appreciate their enthusiasm being together. But, perhaps, a more isolated area would satisfy all parties.
I was very disappointed with the food. I would not recommend this place.
The look since remodeling is fresh and clean. I love the revamped menu. The food is excellent and a good value. Finally, a place where the noise level is appropriate for dining.
The food was good, and server was very friendly but didn't check back often (likely had tables in bar, and it was certainly acceptable service). It was a good place to enjoy conversation and dinner!
We sat in an empty restaurant and it took 45 min to be served our food. An hour luncheon turned into shove your mediocre food in your mouth in 10 min and grab a to go box.
This was a special occasion. We were very excited to be together as a family. And have a lovely dinner to celebrate our daughters graduation. First they were out of two different bottles of wine. Then they were out of the steak we went there for. The server did not open the third bottle that we finally found ithat was in stock,and allow us to taste it. It was not very good. They forgot to give us napkins. They forgot to bring steak sauce. They charged us for the first bottle which was 20 dollars higher than the one they finally have in stock. There was no comp for all of the mistakes. Just an unfortunate meal all around. And the price tag was hefty.
How can you give a table away when we had a valid reservation? Staff needs more experience
Food was great service was friendly but disheveled. While all the servers were trying hard they did not seem to have a plan or process
We very much enjoyed the entire visit and would recommend the outing and dinning to all our friends
Mother’s Day Brunch
Although some might think that the 'noise level' was energetic we did not find that to be the case. It was impossible to have a conversation. When the waiter took our order, and he did a fantastic job, he had to lean over our table to take our order. The food was good, but the noise level was quite annoying.
