Return visit. Colleagues from out of town as first time visitors. Salmon was perfectly prepared, tacos were incredible; excellent service. Prices are a bit high; but good experience. Would return again.

This was our second visit and it was awesome once again. They were super kind when we arrived, thanking us for leaving a review. The food was all prepared as expected and super yummy. I made sure to save room for dessert and it did not disappoint. I love this place! Will definitely be back.

Dined with our good friends and everyone’s food was off. All mashed potatoes were cold and lumpy, even replacement. Pork chop was over cooked and tough. They took it off our bill. And hairs in the plate were the killer. Service was good. Been there 4 times. Won’t be back.

We have been visiting Juniper for a few years now & love the Street Taco appetizer. It's primarily the reason we go back. We just took friends there on Saturday for a celebratory dinner. Of course the appetizer was great, food was exactly as expected. The dining room is very dark & it's hard to read the menu. It's also quite loud and a bit hard to enjoy private conversation. We will be back for the appetizer is nothing else.

We have been her multiple times and the food is always consistant sometimes we lose the server for a bit but the service is good overall and as I said the food is consistant from steaks to salads or a sandwich, very reliable.

We were seated in the side room. The noise level was unbelievable. You had to shout to be heard, which is clearly what everyone was doing. Meat was sub par cuts with lots of gristle. Seems like more of a bar hang out than a restaurant.

We met up with friends here and it was a great pick. They obviously knew we would be super loud and seated us by ourselves in a private room, which was awesome. Our waitress was very friendly and gave us coupons for next time. She did not even seem fazed when my son put on an inflatable dragon costume. We would definitely go back.

Juniper Grill is a place I can count on for fabulous food. My fave is the salmon with asparagus. Other faves are the fish tacos- grilled fish, not deep fried, and the beef brisket Enchiladas.

Well my wife and I enjoy a date night once a week and Jupiter Grill is a very comfortable restaurant, good service, nice food, not a huge menu but enough. We just enjoyed it since we can enjoy a leisurely dinner, great conversation and leave with a smile.

I had the Amish chicken which was good, but nothing exceptional. The mashed potatoes were tasty, as was the succotash.

The background music was terrible--hard rock--certainly not a pleasant ambiance for dinner.

My husband liked his meal (baby back ribs, brisket, and very good potato salad).

We frequent Juniper and have our favorites. My wife loves the fish (tilapia) tacos and I can’t break away from the California chicken burger. Very solid options! We’ve enjoyed many other items on the menu, too.

This was our first time at the Juniper Grill. We were celebrating my son's 14th birthday. He ordered the brisket and couldn't stop raving about it. My husband had the skirt steak and I had the California burger. Everything was delicious. Our server was very attentive and friendly. Noise level wasn't too bad. I could hear well enough. We will come back for sure!

Lovely Dinner on the Patio with Chandler as our server. He was awesome! There was also a young lady with red hair who assisted him and she was also awesome. My husband enjoyed the pick a trio of BBQ and I had the Ahi Tuna salad. Both were excellent. A special treat was the fresh Peach Salsa end Chips. I highly recommend the Juniper Grill in Cranberry!

I usually use Open Table to reserve, but Juniper Grill is always a popular place and we never seem to get good seating, unfortunately. My date felt the menu did not have much to impress her, and we have grown a bit tired of the BBQ fare, so we may not return, at least not for a while. Our server was pleasant enough and if we had not searched a bit to find out about the other desserts offered, we would not have known about or ordered the Peach Pie, which was undoubtedly the highlight of the meal and a positive at this restaurant. We enjoyed the house Margaritas and all the fare was done according to the specs. Just didn't really connect on this second try, did not feel like I got the experience I was hoping for, but it happens.

Food is always very good - great tastes and presentation. The serving sizes are generous. We had the seasonal peach salsa that we were glad was back because it is very good. The service was great. We miss Turtle, but we were very well served by Brittany and look forward to her serving us next time.
