Enjoyed a night out with my husband for his birthday. More lively atmosphere than usual for there were several holiday parties going on. But service and food were top notch!

At this price point we’ve come to expect exemplary cuisine, in Greenville or nationally. Entrees were good, not outstanding. Service average to poor for four reasons: 1) Upon arrival there were 3 hosts- we weren’t acknowledged by any- while standing right if front of them for an extended period. A simple “good evening- we’ll be with you in a moment”- would have worked. 2. After two questions were asked about a special, our waitress looked distracted and actually left the table? She did return but with no apology. 3) We pre-ordered champagne (as a surprise) confirmed this by phone twice and it was never served!! And 4. We asked and were told the carrot cake had raisins and a cream cheese icing. It had neither. Sweet butter cream and cream cheese are readily discerned by most cooks. The service comments are specific- because they can be readily fixed. We’ll give this location one more try - in hopes for improvement. The owner did courteously visit our table- but we didn’t feel it was appropriate to provide this litany while dining.

My wife and friends gather here for birthday dinners at least 6-8 times per year. Never had a bad experience, the food is excellent and Chuck is an outstanding waiter who provides the best service you could ever wish for. Highly recommend Rick Irwins West End Grill.

I ordered the Delmonico steak. The parts that were tender were delicious but about half of the steak was fat and I could not chew it. I didn’t send it back because I was not familiar with this cut of steak and thought maybe this was to be expected. The rest of our party enjoyed all of their food and my sister said that was the best meal she had ever had seafood bisque, filet mignon and crab cake. The key lime pie was amazing. The sides and bread were all fantastic.

My wife and I wanted to have dinner at a very nice restaurant after attending a show at the Peace
Center and to celebrate my birthday ,I had been here before but my wife had not. She loved it ..the food was great and the wine and beer was awesome. John our waiter was second to none
He was very informative....(you guys need to give him a raise) I observed as he waited on others
he was so helpful in suggestions and recommendations and even though I told I was just a meat and potatoes guy he still made suggestions and I had the best 20oz rib eye steak ever...and a large portion of mashed potatoes , it was great..... my wife enjoyed hers also......Thanks to John and we will definitely be back

Our steak was dry. The waitress was rude. The collards were miserable. The adult beverages were watered down. The bread was the best part of the meal. Definitely not the southern hospitality that I was looking for. The bread was the best part of the meal.

This was a pleasant surprise in a part of downtown Greenville that has been going through an amazing transformation. Great but pricy wine list. Menu was very good as was the food. Great service and ambiance. Overall a bit pricy. This is Greenville, not Buckhead, so this is not an option for everyday or regularity unless you have an expense account. Greenville now has a lot of good options.

Mediocre at best. Very disappointed in the food, tryIng too hard wth bad results. Undercooked food, way too much salt used in seasoning of food that was actually cooked. Pretentious and unimpressive wine list! Only good thing was our waiter who was very professional and courteous and totally wasted in this restaurant.

We were so disappointed with the food. We were a party of 10 and everyone who ordered the steak agreed it was mostly fat and little meat. The crab cakes were 75% filler. Not worth the $200 plus bill for just my family of 3. We had heard so much about this place and were extremely disappointed with the quality of food.

Our server seemed annoyed that we were placed in his section to start, and things never really got better from there. We asked for recommendations on certain dishes, and he couldn't give any nor could he discuss the dishes we had questions about. Steak and lobster were both very good, but we felt as if we had inconvenienced our server the whole time. I could handle this at a sandwich shop, but I do expect more from a place such as this. Most likely the last time we visit the West End Grille.

Decided to stay away from steak and tried the lamb. Would not repeat. Not well cooked and lacked flavor. Server was ok but not the best at Ricks. This place has major competition in Greenville and it was very quiet on a Friday night while every other place was packed. It may be losing its mojo a little. I think I will give it a miss for a while

Excellent food, excellent service. Apps, salads, main dishes, etc were delivered to the table in a time sensitive matter. They even prepared a half portion of sweet potatoes and delivered to the table early for our 18mo daughter. We sat near the front line for the food, so it was kinda loud, but works out for us since we had a youngster with us. Prices were high, but for the quality of food and service, I feel like it was a good value. For 2 people be prepared for $60+++ Overall a great dining experience.
