Great effort on the part of The Glen Club to give us a last chance to eat outdoors before the weather turns!

You have to check out the igloos! It only do they set the ambiance - they are sanitized after each use with a spray that eliminates the viruses! Ask for Luanne. She is awesome!

Omar was a great server (jut like Juan is). The Fench onion soup and sandwich was delicious, and actually everything there is good (don't get me started on the chocolate lava cake, mmmmmmmm).

We ate outside on a crisp afternoon as the ground crew was decorating with pumpkins and hay bales. Felt very safe eating there.

Lovely patio& view, good service. Very average food. Ordered chicken Marsala - it was more like thick orange sauce with a few mushrooms. Would have been much better without the sauce. They really need to up their food game bc they’re not inexpensive.

This place is like being at a Country Club without the membership dues. We love it here. Wait staff was friendly and accommodating.The menu has become a bit more varied which we were glad to see. We will be back again and again. Can't wait to try their igloos too!

In an effort to continue to eat outside we were seated outside but it was so windy the heat lamps could not stay lit. We had a wonderful waiter who moved us to another table but the lamps still would not stay lit. We moved inside and there was plenty of social distance between the tables that we felt safe eating indoors. The staff all had masks. I think the restaurant does a great job training the staff on Covid protocol. The food is always good. I ate there twice this week . Keep up the good work

I originally planned on dining outdoors for lunch but due to rain I moved indoors. I was glad to see that the restaurant had removed several tables and disinfected the eating areas as people left. The staff here could not be nicer and all wore there masks. The food is always good no matter what I order. The Glen Club was a great place to spend outdoors this summer for dining

We have come to The Glen Club many times this summer because of the lovely patio overlooking the course. The tables are spaced and the servers are following all the COVID guidelines. The best part is the food. We have tried a number of starters and entrees and they have all been delicious. My favorites are the sliders, the chicken tortillas and the salmon and quinoa salad.
Enjoy!

The view from the garden tables is wonderful. You feel like you are in another world. The salads are large and packed full of the additional goodies that are described on the menu. The service gets a little slow when it gets busy, but the wait only lets you enjoy your surroundings longer. We will be going back.

We have been to the Glen Club many times and have mostly enjoyed it. The past few months though the service has been extremely slow and almost non existent. This past week, with a reservation to dine outdoors, we met friends for dinner. We immediately received water and the specials menu. We sat for at least 20 minutes before a server approached our table to take a beverage order. Then we waited about 15 minutes for the drinks to arrive. We also asked for paper menus which took another 20 minutes to be brought to our table. Just a few minutes later the server returned to take our dinner order. No one had enough time to review it unfortunately. We then waited about another 20 minutes for our order to be taken. After ordering the food took about 30 minutes to be delivered. The server never returned to make sure our dinners were as ordered. At about this time the sun went down and we were very chilly. Despite many heaters scattered throughout the patio no one ever asked if we would like a heater near our table. We were very cold and again no server came to ask if we wanted dessert or our checks. We sat another 30 minutes before the server came and we asked for our checks. We couldn't wait to get out of there and to the heat of our car. This experience has been almost the same every time we visited since July with the exception of the heaters. It also didn't seem like there was a manager on duty since no one came around to ask how things were going. We like this place but will hesitate going there again.

Sitting in the grill of a golf club was a great experience. Everything was run according to pandemic protocol. The beer and liquor selection was enormous, and there were Oktoberfest specials, and I had the excellent Punkin Ale. My wife and I shared the Caesar salad, which was big and really good. Her pork tenderloin special with gnocchi was fabulous, and my rarely seen orange roughy prepared in a mustard crust was great. Wines were well priced, and overall the meal was a good value. Our server Otto was efficient and friendly. A nice experience and one we’ll be looking forward to again.

Always love going there, this time it was a Birthday celebration. Now they have heaters outside for those who do not want to eat inside. Had the most delicious smoked salmon salad and very generous with the salmon. Lots of golfers enjoying the beautiful day!

Our waiter was really nice but I'm not sure of his name. Oliver maybe? The only complaint is that we had a difficult time getting the menu on our phones. Perhaps paper menus could be readily available when needed. And this complaint has nothing to do with our server. He tried to be as helpful as possible.

Lovely out door and indoor seating at this restaurant that is open to the public.
Could have used a candle on the table to give it even more ambiance !!

Being out on the patio on a lovely night made for an excellent evening. The tables were separated for social distancing, and face masks were required for ordering and when servers were present. The large degree of separation, required by state regulation, tene to slow down the pace of service, which on the one hand made for a most leisurely meal, but the other hand, seemed quite slow. The menu included some very nice selections and the regular menu was very creative as well. This was our second visit in three weeks and we will be back again in the future.

I went there for the first time with my cousin who goes frequently and loved it! Our server Oscar was fantastic, and the food was delicious. It was my cousins Birthday and Oscar surprised her with a yummy mini cookie sundae. We had a great time. I will definitely be back!

Lovely, scenic (overlooking the golf course) patio with delicious food and drinks. Perfect setting during the Covid time. Umbrella tables provide shade. Wait staff friendly and accommodating. Service was a bit slow but we were in no hurry. We have made this our go-to place this summer!

The Al fresco dinning on the veranda over looking the golf course is outstanding, especially the tables under the trees. They have added music Monday and Wednesday which was recommended by friends.
Most important is the new chef. Previously the food was OK, now it's very good. I hope he stays.
Last, the service is not as strong as it should be. They are very friendly but could use more training and supervision.
But weighing all factors, I would definitely recommend the Glen Club Grill.
