A coworker and I work across the street and figured we’d try out Rugby Grille after other coworkers raved about it. One thing I can appreciate besides the delicious food and great prices, is that they stand behind their brand. There was an error with my steak which caused the wait for our food to be almost 45 minutes long. She and I only have 1 hour lunch breaks. They gave me one of the more expensive steaks for the wait and it was delicious. I appreciated that I didn’t have to address the problem because they already knew and handled it. I will definitely be returning for the steak frites and the great customer service!

Foie Burger was delicious along with the fish of the day and the special of the peppercorn crusted 4oz. Filet with fettuccini ! Excellent! Try Rugby Grille’s outdoor patio!

It is a mother’s day tradition. The service is remarkably slow and not intuitive given we have two young kids who are great fine dining meal companions but only to a certain length of time. Food was exquisite as always.

The food at Rugby is still okay, but you pay for great food, and the food is just okay from a value standpoint. They have a new chef coming in 2 weeks, and maybe he/she will restore the magic.

We had the specials of the day consisting of shrimp toast as an appetizer and a Rugby Grille made pasta with mushrooms for the main course. Very nice! I love the fresh bread delivered to the table that has matso bread and also Italian breadsticks. Nice options. We had the chocolate cake for dessert which was amazing!
