We loved the experience of celebrating our daughter's 20th birthday at the restaurant. It was a bit loud, but everything else was amazing.

Everything about the Grove is fabulous. The food, the ambiance, the service, the music. The carrot cake was not overly sweet; the halibut was done perfectly; my smoked tomato soup was smooth and mellow.

Food and atmosphere is always nice. But, each time I have gone, most notably this past weekend, the welcome and staff is less than desirable. You don’t get a sense of appreciation or feeling of as a valued customer. I have both hosted a private catered dinner and dine in for luncheons and experiences has been the same. Please use this review as constructive.

Best wishes

Came with close friends for a double Anniversary date. We’ve been once before and loved the ambiance but the food was lacking. I am so happy to report major improvements to menu. The food was what I expect to find in a restaurant and bar this beautiful (and pricey 😝). We will definitely come back and tell family/friends of all the improvements!

Our waiter was fantastic! Best service we have had in awhile. It was a beautiful night so the atmosphere was great with the open doors to the patio. The music was fantastic. (We left before the live band started.) The music always is loud so it is difficult to hear the waiter, especially with a mask. Conversation at the table could be heard. The food is over priced but tastes acceptable. There is a good variety. We had a much better time than our last visit from about a year ago. We may go back more often based on this experience. However, the price of the food compared with its quality probably will steer us to other choices.

Had a wonderful late afternoon lunch at The Grove!
Anthony made wonderful suggestions for appetizers- entrees - and most importantly... dessert!
Roasted Duck, Chicken Milanese and Blackened Shrimp Wedge were all wonderful but the Carrot Cake stole the show! Would absolutely ask for Anthony on our next visit!

The two main things are food and service which were very good. The unique areas for dinning was a plus. Had a little issue with the area we reserved to dine in on arrival. Instead of waiting, we chose the outside garden area, which was very nice. But could not see the menu or our food. Over all it was a very good dinning experience. It was our first time at The Grove. We will be back and we will recommend to friends.

My husband and I enjoyed Sunday Brunch at The Grove in August 2020 (during COVID-19). Our food & drinks were delicious, ambience was fantastic. Service was a little slow, but the staff seemed to have paid great attention to Social Distancing Guidelines. Will be back for sure!

The food was a bit lacking this time (ex. Burger over cooked...although I’m certain they would’ve brought another I asked). Also, I bragged about how beautiful the ladies room is to find it to be overly dirty. Overall my family and I enjoyed the experience. The atmosphere is fantastic. The service is nice.

It takes a lot for me to complain or leave a bad review but we were very disappointed in our recent experience at The Grove. We had an 8:30 reservation and we pleased we were able to be seated outside because the weather has been pleasant. The problem with sitting outside was that it was completely dark. The landscape lights were on but if you’re not seated by a tree, it is pitch dark. I had to have my cell phone light on the entire meal. It’s very simple to put a candle on each table. Everyone around us had to use their phone lights to read the menu and see their bills. While our server was friendly, the service was very very slow. A member of my party ordered a steak cooked medium and it was rare. We sent it back and it still came back undercooked. I was very disappointed in the whole experience. The Grove has such potential, however, we will not return.

We've enjoyed dining here inside. This trip, for my birthday, the bacon wrapped sea scallops were barely cooked. As a retired chef, I know how to cook scallops, & it was unacceptable, so we returned them. They were very good, but as expected, my entree got cold waiting for husband's scallops to return. This just sours the total experience. The manager deducted something off of our check and apologized, which was a very kind gesture.

My wife and I decided to drive down to Tyler from Texarkana on a Saturday for the day and I made reservations for brunch at The Grove. Not knowing much about it, I'm sure glad we tried it out. Upon entering the restaurant, we had a good vibe that we made a great choice. For an appetizer we chose the crab dip which was an excellent choice! For our entrees, my wife chose the Chilaquiles Verdes which was very good & tasty and I treated myself to the Shrimp & Grits which were as good as it gets! Overall, The Grove was an excellent place to enjoy our Saturday Brunch! Would definitely recommend!
