Our seven o'clock open table reservation was not honored. Finally seated at 7:45. Even then there was very spotty and inefficient service. Management seems to be missing. Too bad. The food is excellent.

We like the Glen Club a lot. My only criticism is that the menu is somewhat limited wrt variety. However, what's available is prepared in very interesting ways.

Food was mediocre- slabs of corned beef on Reuben. If it had been thinly sliced - so much better! Fries limp. This place brings us back because my mother can hear here. The round tables are intimate and unless the bar is crowded noise level is reasonable.

We have eaten at the Glen Club several times but the service and food were second rate, at best. There appears to be new management that is literally "new". We ordered an "old fashion" from the bar and it was made with vodka (what?) When ordering, we had to remind our waitress that she needs to ask how we would like our steaks cooked. We also had to remind her to ask what salad dressing we would like on our salads. My father's skirt steak was literally a strip of thin steak that was burnt, not "well done". The time it took to order dessert, eat and receive the bill took much longer than it needed to be or we wanted it to be. The noise level in the restaurant was loud. Our waitress couldn't hear us talk to place our order and we had a difficult time hearing each other talk.

Hidden gem in the Glenn with attentive service, good food and clubby ambience. The only disappointment was our request to sit in the beautiful outdoor patio wasn't fulfilled because club members get priority for outside seating.

My skirt steak was flat as a pancake and well done/NOT medium rare by a long shot!!! We had to constantly search for our waiter to request drink refills, more chips and steak sauce. When he finally did show up he was MOST unpleasant and acted put out! If it weren't for the wonderful view, I would never come back and tell all my friends and coworkers about this very UNHAPPY birthday experience!!!!

We love this venue for dining, especially in the beautiful weather we have been having. The food was very good and our waitress was extremely pleasant and accurate. Our only disappointment was that when we reserved our table, we had asked for an outdoor table and were told when we arrived that the wait for that location would be 1 hour.

I have dine there often but will rethink this after last few times. You cannot get reservations outside, the inside room is freezing and when it is crowded the service is so slow. It took us 2.5 hr to have dinner and our waiter had to be called for order, check, and refills. When the water glasses were filled initially, water was spilled on the floor and I had to ask to have it wiped up so my friend would not trip when she arrived. Service needs to be greatly improved.

It was way too loud. I couldn’t even have a conversation with my husband and we were seated at a table for two! Our server was running around (apparently busy) but pretty inattentive. She was very sweet but the service wasn’t great. The food (turkey burger and a very small skirt steak) tasted good.

This was a poor experience. We waited to be greeted at least 10 minutes before the waitress showed up. We ordered and waited 55 minutes before our incorrect order showed up. Very poor service.

We had a wonderful time at the Grill at the Glen Club. The weather, scenic view and food were outstanding. Unfortunately, our waiter misunderstood what one of us ordered and argued back
and forth that he was right. Also, the waitstaff that brought our water held the top of the glasses
with his hands. When we asked for straws, he held them and served them with his hands.
Other restaurants in which we have dined hold the glasses from the bottom or stem and
serve straws held in a napkin - much more sanitary.
