Friendly and attentive service.
We chose George Martin's Grillfire because it had good reviews. However, the food was mediocre at best. My wife's salad was a bit stale, and the blue cheese was not very fresh. Two of us chose the cheese steak sandwich which had plenty of meat, but had a strange consistency and tasted like liver. My burger clearly was frozen (big mistake), had not been thawed properly -- which we could tell by the soggy middle. Not a good experience. The ambience was nice, and the wait staff was polite and helpful, but we came for the food.
The food, service and ambiance at the restaurant is good. The menu however is a bit limited and the prices are on the high side.
We appreciate the feedback and would love to see you again in the future.
The food and service was amazing as always. They put several extra tables in for the additional Valentine’s Day demand and that killed the ambiance. Servers couldn’t maneuver through with the food. All of the tables were on top of each other, so you couldn’t have a private or romantic conversation on Valentine’s Day, which pretty much defeats the whole point.
I went with my brothers for dinner. From appetizer to dessert, the food was delicious. The drinks were very well mixed. And the staff was friendly and professional. I will be back!
We're so glad to hear you all had a 5-star experience! We hope to see you again soon.
Our server was very kind and sweet. She checked on us several times to make sure we didnt need anything. The food was amazing.
We're so glad to hear you had a great experience with us and can't wait to see you again!
Dinner was outstanding. The prix fixe for 2 for valentine's day was a great value and so good! Thanks for a memorable night.
We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your Valentine's Day with us!
I would recommend George Martin's Grillfire but not on a busy night. The staff seemed overwhelmed with their table assignments and a bit disorganized. This may have been due to it being Valentine's day, however, my expectation would be that understanding this, staffing adjustments would have been made. The food was mediocre.
Thanks for celebrating with us!
Great food. Great atmosphere. Parking was a bit of a nuisance. Will be back
Had a lovely Valentine's Day meal. Service was on point and we were able to enjoy each other's company while enjoying a delicious dinner. Can't wait to come back again.
Thank you for celebrating with us! We hope to see you again soon!
The waitress Mrs. Jessica was fabulous. Her attitude, patience. and work performance was excellent. The food was great. Not only will recommend a friend, but we , my wife and I will be back very soon and ask for Mrs. Jessica and the food we ordered as well.
We love to hear that and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
There is so much that we love about Grillfire and it’s more than the great food. It’s the atmosphere, service, attentiveness. We relocated the Maine a couple of years ago and make occasional trips to Maryland just for Grillfire. Our server, Rohit, was spectacular. The managers were even accommodating of our special requests. Thanks for a consistently wonderful experience.
We're so glad to hear you continuously enjoy your experiences with us!

Excellent Service from our waiter Troy. The chef special was Miso Monkfish with ginger curry sauce, smoked mussels and basmati rice for $26. This dish was excellent and filling. I recommend making a reservation. The wait can be long, 45 minutes during 6-8pm timeframe.
We're so happy to hear you had a 5-star experience with us! Come back and see us again soon!
Overall, the experience was great. They were very accommodating to dietary restrictions, and the waitress was friendly but not invasive. The noise level was high due to two extremely large groups at the bar, but given the location in the hotel that is probably variable.
We're glad to hear you had a great experience with us! Come back and see us again soon!

Staff was wonderful and service was great. Ordered Salmon, Brussel sprout appetizer. Sea bass special was over cooked and rubbery, which was disappointing. Server took off bill with us asking with profuse apologies, which was SO APPRECIATED! All other food was very good.
We're glad we were able to take care of this mishap for you and you still enjoyed your experience! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
We had a very nice Christmas dinner
Thank you for spending the holiday with us! We're glad you enjoyed your experience at Grillfire.
Fantastic! We showed up with 2 more in our party than we had reservations for. The place was packed but they didn’t blink an eye. Set us up within minutes. The server was great and spot on with his food recommendations. The food was excellent! We’re sure to go back soon and often.
We're happy to hear we were able to accommodate you and your party with ease! We hope to see you again soon.
We were looking for a place nearby for a quiet Christmas eve dinner since it was going to be just the two of us that evening. I made reservations for Grillfire based on the online reviews. When we got to the restaurant, we were immediately taken to our table; unfortunately, it was right next to the door. We asked to be moved and the hostess hesitated saying that they had several large parties coming in later and she did not have another table. Even though there were several booths and small tables within eye shot. We told her that we'd prefer not to sit next to the door as it was cold outside and did not want to be that close to the door opening and closing while we were trying to eat our meal. She stepped away for a minute, came back and proceeded to sit us at a booth that was. . . directly in front of the door. We tried. Not wanting to make a fuss, we sat down and waited. And waited. The hostess noticed that we had not been waited on (how could she not see, we were right in front of her). She came over with two water glasses and said "here's your water glasses." I thought maybe she was going to bring us some water, but no. And we waited. Finally, our waiter showed up and took our order. He was good. Not great, but good. I had order a filet rare and my husband order a filet medium rare. Both came out medium rare. I had to send mine back, but the re-fired steak was perfect. The food was excellent, but because we were right in front of the door being opened and closed, our food quickly cooled. We will definitely return and we will definitely be much firmer about not sitting in front of or next to the door.
We appreciate your feedback, Sheila, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Restaurant has a gimmick. Cotton candy after dinner. Steaks are ok. For $35 and more per steak, I was expecting a much better experience. Wait staff are friendly and attentive. Wine selection is good but we ended up with a below par Rosé. Our fault. I rated them a three stars only because prices indicated an above average experience, we had only an average experience.
We appreciate your feedback and would love to see you again for another visit soon!
It is always great to go here and get good food and service. The only disappointment is the Chili Pop shrimp appetizer, appears to be getting smaller and smaller each time I visit. That's it.
We appreciate your feedback, Rob. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
We have been going to Grillfire since it opened and we never tire of it because they add new items and are always improving upon what was already great! The starters are all great here; it is hard to decide what to have. Tonight we enjoyed the crab balls, tuna wontons, and Brussel sprouts. The complimentary bread is delicious, and the honey salted butter a great surprise. They have some old favorites like the meatloaf, and the ribs have some new improvements but still delicious. If you like carrot cake, theirs is the the best we have had anywhere. This time of year be sure to try the Egg Nog! It is a real treat. Service is consistently good due to the management staying engaged here. It makes all the difference in the world.
We absolutely love to hear that, Ann! We're so glad to hear that you continuously enjoy your visits with and we can't wait to see you again soon!
