Stomping Grounds Grille
We were just back for the first time after being away for months. Couldn't wait for the Stuffed Scallop, Chowder and Pistachio Encrusted Salmon! Consistently great!
We met out of town friends for dinner on a Saturday and chose Stomping Grounds as it was the mid-point between us. We were welcomed warmly but had to wait about 15 minutes for our table. Then we were seated right in front of the nightly entertainment, a very nice acoustic guitarist. Had we just been there to listen to music, it would have been great. But it was not ideal for conversation with friends we hadn't seen in months so we asked to be moved. Our next table was ideal for conversation.
We enjoyed the food but there was only one server working and she had too many tables to be attentive to any of us. She did her best but we waited quite a bit for our drinks and our order to be taken.
We would go back, however. The restaurant is charming, cozy and has good food.
Everything was delicious and incredible. We shared Charlie’s chowder which has chunks of lobster, scallops and cod as well as mussels that were beyond delicious and delicate. The shrimp 🦐 cocktail was generous and perfectly done. 3 of us had chicken Oscar that had a perfectly prepared chicken with a lobster tail, asparagus and bernaise sauce. The drinks service and preparation was off the chart!
An excellent dinner out at Stomping Grounds once again! Thank you.
I always enjoy our experience at Stomping Grounds. Excellent food, good entertainment, excellent atmosphere. Always look forward to seeing Leanne as well; she's very good.
Not able to accommodate out party comfortably, and we made a reservation well in advance- Very loud and unpleasant music- décor very overly done- not a vibe conducive to enjoying a meal- food was good- a bit over-priced.
We had a wonderful meal and great music. This is such a delicious and fun restaurant. We take visitors here as well as loving it all year round. Helene the owner chef is so talented. Also son Charlie owner and manager and Marni was our server. What a great team. We had the chicken oscar for the first time and it was so moist, crispy yet bursting with flavor of the asparagus and Bearnaise sauce. Their drinks are fun too. I had a cinnamon girl and my husband had a comfortably numb. We were also lucky that Dave Yaeger was playing guitar and singing. He's the best! We love coming here with the funky music album art on the walls and wonderful people.
Great place! Service, atmosphere, food excellent. Every time we go we’re never disappointed. Varied specials are great. Always hard to choose - want to try everything!
This place is always great! Almost afraid to review since it might get to busy to get a seat!!
Second time eating here, first time was so good my wife and I invited another couple. The prime rib steak was seasoned just right, good size and delicious. Others had pistachio salmon and one had the cod dinner, everybody loved their meals. Lee Ann ( I believe was her name) our waitress was attentive, personal, and cool. We’re heading back soon.
Always a great experience! We always look forward to it and always enjoy it!
Every experience here has been a great one. THE CHEF IS EXCEPTIONAL! and the staff is always pleasant
Food was delicious as always! Music was great. We sat in the other room but it was the perfect volume. Loved our cocktails as well...you can tell a lot of care and love goes into everything that comes out of the kitchen!
Cozy place with friendly service and good food. Would definitely recommend.
My husband and I went to the Stomping Grounds Grille for my birthday last Friday. We love and go frequently there. When we arrived everyone wished me a Happy Birthday including the featured guitar player Dave Yeager. Helene and Charlie are owner Mom and son. They had their specials on a page for the night but they had put on the top Happy Birthday Sue! Marni was our wait person who is the significant partner of Charlie. Also Ami was great too. I started with their Cinnamon Girl drink and Steve had comfortably numb. All the drinks are named by songs. They have record cover and posters all over. I started with the special crab bisque which was out of this world and topped with crab meat. Steve had the lobster raviolis from the regular menu that are always delicious. I had the Mama Helene's Prime rib cooked perfectly and melted in your mouth. Steve had the Cajun swordfish special that was delish as well. They had given me a gift bag with some adorable gifts as well as a totally funny card. We were going to leave without dessert and out came the lava like cake with ice cream and all singing happy birthday. This was so delicious and memorable!
The food, drinks and service are always great. Prime rib was one of the best I have ever had and cocktail selection works well with the meal. I dont know how they turn out such great food with the small kitchen she has to work with. Almost forgot, wings are unbelievable.
I have already recommended it to several other people.
Homey, welcoming atmosphere in a former home. Great service, big beverage selection and very well made, food was excellent, live music was nice. Great experience -- we will be back.
Amazing local spot with an outstanding food, and drinks menus!
Always a great experience when we dine there. Good food, good music, great atmosphere. I am curious however, why I received a notice cancelling my reservation when we were there on time.
Loved the overall feeling of this place, they were busy but they didn’t make you feel rushed. The food was excellent and especially the desserts. Would have like to sit in the room without the music felt like we had to talk over the singer. But really loved the whole experience
The food was very good and the restaurant itself was very relaxing.
Pleasantly surprised. Love the music themed room we sat in , entertainment, and excellent food !!
We took another couple of friends who had never been there Saturday night and it was fabulous. We shared the mussels and lobster ravioli. 3 of us had the Carpetbagger which is a filet mignon topped with lobster and bernaise sauce. It was delicious and melted in your mouth. The other friend had the Steak au poivre which he said was delicious too. We ended with a refreshing fruit shortcake. Everyone was extremely happy and full.
Great food and service.
Amazing food prepared fresh. Exceptional service and nice mellow ambiance with music on weekends
Valentine's Day - Heart shaped lobster raviolis, stomping greens salad, seafood Fra Diavlo. The seafood is so fresh and moist, the dishes so flavorful. Specialty brews to go with it and live music in the background. What a nice restaurant. It is one of our favorites and perfect for date night!
We had been here for dinner and thought the food was very good so we came back for brunch and we were not disappointed! Had the fluffiest pancakes ever! Will definitely be back!
I've been for dinner once and brunch three times. I've had amazing meals and treatment each and every time. It's my go to brunch spot, with just enough selections as to not overwhelm you. Try the homemade prime rib hash, you won't be disappointed!! Already planning our next brunch!!
Great as usual
I have been here several times. I have never been disappointed once with the food or service.
Atmosphere is awesome.
I just went there with a party of six.
My friends texted me later on how great the place was! I’ll be back.
The specials are always great - fresh and moist seafood - with amazing flavors! You might like a quiet table for 2 or the end of the bar - both are great. The live music is so nice - not too loud - guitars and young artists singing sets of new music and songs you know. You can take your time and relax. It's your neighborhood bar but with some of the best food and drink you have ever had!
So we have eaten almost every meal on the menu. It's hard to even pick favorites and then there are the specials to choose from. The portion sizes are good - so we can share - which is great. The local craft beers are so nice and there is always something new to try. We just love it here. Thoroughly enjoyable!
The ambiance is the best; local musicians playing the guitar and singing. Great selection of beer and wines. Then the food is just heavenly, good specials, everything from scratch and so fresh. It is one of our favorite places to eat.
We took our friends who were in from Miami last night. My friend Cathy and I had the Carpetbagger which is a filet mignon (totally melted in your mouth) topped with a lobster tail and bernaise sauce. Cooked exactly as we ordered it. Her husband had the scallops and bacon and loved it. My husband had the seafood newburg special which he really enjoyed. Dave Yaeger was playing guitar which was so much fun. Marnie was our waitress and we were amazed how she was able to cover both rooms as well as some help from Amy. Helene is a fabulous chef and never disappoints. We proudly take any friends and guests here knowing it will be excellent and fun everytime!
Everything was fantastic I highly recommend for any occasion
Consistently awesome! The live music is so enjoyable.
Food outstanding. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Our new favorite place for a quiet dinner.
This was our first time coming for brunch on Sunday. We were so pleased to have made a reservation as it was packed. We both had bloody mary's one virgin and one real. Very tasty. I ordered the traditional eggs Benedict and my husband had pulled pork instead of Canadian bacon. The hollandaise sauce was out of this world delicious. I wanted to drink it. Also the hash browns and mini cut up fruit was great too. Helene really outdid herself. We'll be back for more as well as always coming back for dinner.
