As usual, everything was great! The food cannot be beat. We love Queenies! If we could change one thing, it would be the noise level in the warehouse atmosphere.

About the restaurant
Welcome to the Downtown Kitchen. We have one goal in mind when we open our doors every day - "To do whatever it takes to create the best dining experience possible.' That means buying certified Angus beef, Ashley Farms chicken, New Zealand Spring lamb, dayboat fish and fresh local produce. We change our menus daily according to market and season availability. Our style of cooking is defined as simplicity at its best. We built the restaurant to elevate the guests' level of comfort. The bar, tables, and booths were custom-made by a local wood worker. And we searched the nation for unique works of Art to deck our walls. Music of Blues and Rock greats fill the air. Service is as important as the food. Our staff is sincere, knowledgeable and friendly. They hustle to deliver the best service around, yet take the time to remember your name and how you like your drink.

We have been going for Monday night ribeye for a few weeks. It’s usually amazing. Monday night we were a little disappointed. The steaks were not up to par nor was my cucumber martini. We will definitely go back but not anytime soon. The noise level was off the chart. Our server was amazing btw!!

We love Union Hill Grill. It’s close to home with good cocktails! I had the salmon and it was great. Cooked to perfection. We have been a few times and the food is always pretty solid.

The evening was most enjoyable for us and our friends. Our server was exceptional, food was very good and it came out at record speed! We were seated far back in a comfortable booth so there was hardly any noise which enabled us to carry on our conversations. We will definitely be back soon!

Food was good as usual. Waitress didn't seem as attentive as needed. Wanted an additional cocktail, she didn't offer until the end of the meal. It is very loud, but always very loud, the way the building is made. Overall good experience.
