Not good...menu on Valentine’s day was condensed and was never told and they were out of some of the things that were on the small menu in general. Way too expensive for average food at best

We eat at Juniper a lot and enjoy the seating in the restaurant, but on this night, even though we had a reservation, we were put out on the enclosed patio at a table for 2 by the window. I had to keep my coat on as I could feel cold air blowing through the window like it was partially open. Even though they had the fire place going, I noticed a lady at the table next to us, away from the window, put her coat back on halfway through her meal. It is not enjoyable to eat with your coat on and be cold. The food is good most of the time, but the brisket quesadillas had very little brisket, or anything else in them. Very sparse and mostly the tortilla, which for the price, was not a good value for what we got. The service was A+

We were seated immediately and met our waitress relatively quickly. But as soon as it got busy she seemed to pay less attention to our needs. My husband ordered a second drink from the bar that we never got but weren’t charged for it.
The food was great! I got pork enchilada and my husband got the brisket, rib, chicken combo. I tried his rib and brisket and they were both fab! Brisket especially! We also got skillet cornbread which the both of us ate most of except a small piece. It’s better than getting a dessert!

Superb dining experience as usual . Brittney, as always is a wonder wait person. The food is tasty with a Southwest flair and different than the usual fair at other restaurants in the area. I highly recommend Juniper Grill.

Juniper Grill is a busy and very loud bar which happens to also have a restaurant. Hostess was rude and snooty - a perfect way to start off a meal. Wait staff is good - they hustle.

The hand poured margaritas are as advertised - very good - best part of the meal. Their sweet and sour concoction is really good. Nice choice of better tequilas.

Food is average at best. Brisket was not smoked - it was baked and tough. The horseradish sauce is tasty - not a long of twag - but a nice flavor. BBQ sauce was nothing special. Hand cut fries are crispy, hot and not overly salty. Coleslaw was average - hoping for more. Did not meet the 3 C's of cole slaw: cold, creamy and crispy. It was not cold, was crispy, and not creamy enough.

Incredibly loud outdated music. Food
Need seasoning in it and for vegetables to be cut in uniform sizes. Guacamole would have been good if it didn’t have huge hard lumps of unripened avocado I’m it and onion skin in it.

Food and service were both fantastic! Rachel did a great job explaining the menu and recommending some of her favorite dishes. As an added plus, it was Sunday and half off bottles of wine.

We went to Juniper Grill for date night. Service was excellent and we enjoyed our food very much! Only thing is we were sitted in the first booth past the waiting area - it was chilly and noisy. Would have preferred to be seated further into the restaurant and will request that next time.

We enjoyed the Juniper Grille - friends in from KY and wife needed Gluten Free Options. Waitress was knowledgeable of needs and made recommendations. Waitress was also friendly and provided great service.

Came here on a whim (last minute reservation) for a Saturday birthday lunch. Great food and service. Place wasn’t busy and we got her undivided (yet not annoying) attention. We also received a complimentary entree coupon for our next visit and an amazing ice cream dessert. Great find!

Everything was very good especially the service. Only negative was that they were out of some of the dishes (was looking froward to trying the skirt steak) which seemed odd. The short ribs were excellent.

We had an early new year’s eve dinner that was average at best. My filet and shrimp were over grilled and had dribbles of bern sauce. Had to ask for a second glass of wine before it was offered. The server nearly talked us out of dessert before we selected.

My issue is not with the food or the ambiance; it is with the service. We had a server who was disrespectful. It left me so taken aback that I said nothing to management at the time - especially since we were with another couple and it was a celebratory event. While his overall service was responsive, his interaction with me was not appropriate - especially for a restaurant of this caliber. A follow up call was made to the restaurant the next business day. The service manager was appalled at the episode. She was going to follow up with the general manager and get back to me. This over a week ago and I have yet to receive a follow up call. If we were to go back (and that is a big if) and we were sat at this server's table, we would leave.

Solid dining choice. Don't pass up the grilled fish tacos, but get three because two is just not quite enough for dinner. Solid wine and cocktail selection. Beer selection could be better, but isn't bad.
