Our server arrived after we waited about 10 minutes. She wanted to just take out drink order but we told her we were ready to order. We also stated that we were not here for the afternoon. Our beverages arrived and then the waiting began. Bread came out after 20 minutes or so. Then our lunch arrive after waiting over 45 minutes. The portions were more than plentiful and my husband enjoyed his pork chops. I had a chicken dish and felt that the chicken was over cooked.

The atmosphere is very nice. Plan on spending time there.

We went with our son and granddaughter and all found something they enjoyed. I had the portobello cheese sandwich which was delicious. My husband had a rack of ribs( doggy bagged most of it) Son had cowboy burger and granddaughter had Cesar salad with chicken. Everything was delicious and service was great.

My wife ordered a fish meal which was good. My order was for an Italian veal dish which was mediocre at best, not seasoned as Italian foods normally are. Our biggest problem was that waitstaff was sweeping the floor within about 6 feet of our table after other patrons had vacated that table after finishing their meal. They apparently were preparing that other table for the next day. Not exactly a fine dining experience, while we were still eating. It was approximately 9:15 PM.
Perhaps the management could better train their staff not to begin overnight cleaning while customers are still eating in close proximity.

My wife and I had dinner at the Palmer River Grill on a Friday night. We made reservations for 7:45. and the table was ready when we arrived. Our server greeted us with 1 minute of us being seated. I ordered one of the specials which was rib eye steak topped with lobster tail. I asked if I could substitute prime rib for the steak, and our server got it done. I will say this: The prime rib was the best I've ever had. My wife and I both have extensive experience in the restaurant business, and this place deserves 5 stars all around.

This was our first visit, the place is very well decorated, lots of open space. The menu has lots of options to choose from, and great specials. I had scallops in a lemon butter sage sauce with pasta, it was delicious... my husband had short ribs, he said they were great, a bit decadent. What impressed us the most was the service, our waitress was very attentive, there were lots of staff walking around making sure people were happy. We would definitely go back...

I have been coming here 3 to 4 times a month trying to support local restaurants during the pandemic. Overall the food is great. On this evening the restaurant was NOT busy at all maybe 50%. We sat down waited close to 10 mins to place a drink order then took another 10 before we received it. Our waitress (Lynn) seems to despair for long periods of time. Again the restaurant was not busy. Food runners drop off our food and still no follow-up on Lynn. She showed up toward the end of our meal. I was very disappointed and told her politely that I was annoyed. Minutes later a manager came by and was trying to justify her lack of service and he did not even apologize or try to make the matter better.

Had reservations for 4 people but am only rating my dinner and personal experience. Ordered the Mozambique calamari. Found the dish to have little flavor and very oily, almost inedible. I also ordered the seafood Mozambique in angel hair pasta. Although the is wasn’t oily it did not have very much flavor, also the pasta way way over cooked. It was more like an angel pasta mash.
As far as the service, people are looking to get out now the things are opening up a bit. Our waitress seemed almost annoyed people wanted to get out for dinner. For the 4 of us our bill was over $250. I feel there are better options when it comes to dining out at this price point.

This was the first time my wife and I have been out since the start of the pandemic. We had a gift certificate to the Palmer River Grille. We were very pleased with what the new owners did with the inside. We were seated right away. The menu selections were very good, a lot of different options. My wife had the fried fish and I had the grilled salmon and shrimp. We were both happy about getting to choose from several sides. Both of our meals were very good. Delivered nice and hot, with more than enough food. We will definitely be back.
