Enjoyed a birthday celebration. Food, service, drinks, all good. Only problem, I was informed they are no longer taking reservations through OpenTable, only through Yelp from now on.

The food was the best thing about this visit. Waited a good ten minutes before seeing a waiter. Finally, a waiter appeared and asked if we were ready to order. We said yes, we are ready. He then walked away and we never did see him again. Tried to signal two of the girls working the hostess sections...they ignored us. Then we asked a bus boy who our waiter was and he said, "oh he is outside with customers but I will get someone to take your order". That someone was the manager and he took our order but with no particular apology proffered....not even a complimentary desert.

Food was good. My medium rare steak was over cooked! Other 3 entree were fine. Service was spotty. Waitress was strictly an order taker!
Nice place. Patio seating was nice. Most staff seemed to not want to be there (Memorial Day) !

The last time we came, we were seated at a tiny table next to the entrance to the kitchen. Waiters were bumping into us as they walked by and it was very noisy. This time, I requested a table not near the kitchen and it was great. They should remove that tiny table so the waiters can move through there more easily, and not subject guests to that kind of service. Our waiter was great this time and the food was tasty, as always. I particularly liked the $2.00 off all wine special!

We have been longtime diners at the Pinnacle Grill, so we thought we would bring our friends from Colorado there for dinner. We ordered our drinks but after 20 minutes, we asked the waiter where they were and he thought we had some other drinks, then he read off our order and said the bar was backed up. Another 10 minutes and finally we get our drinks. And they were wrong. Our friend ordered a vodka on the rocks and he got a martini up. We ordered some nachos appetizers and entrees but I told him I didn’t want the nachos if they would be served at the same time as the dinner. We also ordered a bottle of wine. Another 20 minutes and the nachos arrived with two of the 4 dinners. The other 2 dinners arrived 10 minutes later so our entrees were cold. We inquired about our bottle of wine and he blamed it on some inexperienced waitress who was coordinating drinks. We never got our wine. Needless to say we won’t be venturing back there any time soon nor will our friends.

Good neighborhood place to stop by for a casusl meal. The menu is extensive and pleased everyone from my teen grandchildren to the vegetarian Grandma. The ambiance is boisterous indoors and quiet outdoors. I love that you can build your own pasta dishes or burgers.

Thanks for such a great Birthday dinner. Our meals were awesome. We loved the meatball appetizer and the tomato mozzarella as well.
The service was really good. The staff was ultra friendly and fast. I have recommended to several family members. I loved my dessert and the staff singing made the night even nicer.
XOXO We will be back.

We visit 6-8 times per year and are regularly pleased. Food quality is very good, the mid-day staffing is usually lacking. Once the server arrives we are pleased. This visit was for a colleague's birthday lunch.

We will return and would recommend.

Only improvement would be to increase the quality of staffing and attentiveness.

Was disappointed that our favorite entree was presented very differently. The salmon entree that was previously coated with a fine potato crust was toppe with under cooked hash browns. The manager said nothing had changed. ???

Long time customer, but they need to get their act together. Took a long time to be seated and even longer time for someone to take our order. Once the order was taken the food came out in a timely manner, but it took too long for the server to take the payment. In her defense she had inside and outside tables. This is not very smart.

Great food and great atmosphere!
Between the three of us we had salmon, chicken Marsala and a hamburger. They were all excellent!
We sat outside on the patio. They have heaters. Very comfortable. You might want to get a reservation. Very popular!
