Went there on Father's day knowing it would not be fancy, but they still have veal with gravy on the menu, so my husband wanted to go there. Although we were seated tought away it was not with a smile or a Happy Fathers day but either person at the front desk. Waitress also had no greeting for the occasion. The food was good, came out in a timely but not rushed manner. The waitress was so uncheerful that both of my sons commented on it. We had nice company at our table so it was a nice night out but the service could have made it so much more enjoyable.

We had a 4 o’clock reservation and ordered drinks when we got there and they didn’t arrive until close to 430. Our waitress seemed overwhelmed,I don’t know if she was new but she seemed short with us a few times when we had to ask for things a couple of times because she forgot to bring them…my brother ordered his Hamburg medium rare and it came out as like a meatball baked in the oven and totally overdone…we didn’t send it back because our dinner did not come out until 515… overall it was a disappointing experience

Went during the down time. Very few patrons so it was quiet. Food was excellent. Waiter very good. I not fond of salt and pepper in very tiny packets. Sanitary but a huge waste and inconvenient if anyone uses pepper as I do.

This is the second time we visited the Palmer River Grill. We went with friends from South Carolina. We were all pleased with the dishes we selected.

Keep up the quality of the food and service and I am sure you will do well.

Also our waitress Amanda was excellent.

Reservation made 2 weeks in advance. Couldn’t reserve more than 6 so reserved 2 tables, party of 11, request to be seated together. Seated separately 40 minutes after reserved time, reason being an unreserved birthday party. After moving our own tables together, were moved to a table that comfortably sat our party. Rude that the birthday party with no reservation took precedence over our reservation for 1:00 made 2 weeks ahead of time. In addition to our 40 minute seating after the reserved time, took about 10 minutes for our drinks. Did not give our order until an hour after the time we reserved for lunch. Food took forever to come and was cold when it did come. Overall disappointing first experience!

Our appetizer took quite awhile to come. We were in the middle of eating our appetizers when our meals were brought out. I don’t like when meals come out and we are still eating appetizers. Otherwise everything was great.

We always liked the Country Inn and we decided to try the Palmer River Grill. I had the prime rib, it was good but definitely not as good as the Country Inn was but it was good enough that I may try it again. My wife had the sword fish and said that it tasted very good but the piece was a little small. They had many interesting items on the menu. We will definitely try it again.

First visit and the food was amazing and the atmosphere was new and fresh. Everything was perfect great staff and enjoyed the specialty drinks. Drinks and food portions were huge which is a problem for the diet only. Great menu with a nice selection of apps. I have already recommended to friends.

Food and service were fine. Nothing extraordinary, simple offerings at a good price. Similar to their location in Tiverton in most ways. Good for a quick hit every now and then.
