Service was excellent at this neighborhood place. Food was all delicious from loaded tots to chicken chicken sandwich to chopped salad. The fried here are the best!

My wife and I had a great time at Glenview House with multiple football games on TV in the dining area. Service was excellent. The special cocktail list was nuts! I had a pumpkintini which is exactly as it sounds! We both had the chorizo and roasted squash soup to start: completely different and completely great. My wife had the Kobe sliders as her entree and she only got through 3 of 4, which gave me the opportunity to sample the delicious burger. I had a simple but tasty and filling chopped salad along with a rich oat stout. Their beer list was huge! I got an unexpected discount as a First Responder, and turned it back into a big tip. Great place!!!

A nice evening on the patio. Excellent server and never felt rushed. Food isn’t gourmet but a relaxed atmosphere and because of that I would definitely go back.

We haven’t dined out much since phase four - this spot rested our nerves. You could tell safety precautions are taken seriously by the staff. The service was friendly and warm; the patio had a great ambiance and of course the food and spirits made the experience lovely. If you haven’t felt comfortable getting out as of yet, this is the perfect destination.

This was a beautiful restaurant with a fabulous menu great food wonderful bar and Martini bar but it has turned into a cheap bar with bar food that is low grade. No magic here any longer I would imagine its due to Covid but its really a shame.

We had a pleasant time dining outdoors on the patio. The service was excellent. There is a limited menu as with most restaurants these days. The food was good. And the beverages were good also. Expect a little noise as you are sitting right next to Glenview Road. It worked out great as we had children with us so the noise did not bother anyone. Will definitely be back

While they only had outdoor seating, the service was great as usual. They had a little problem with keg chiller so tap beer wasn’t ice cold, but was cold enough to be refreshing on a hot afternoon.

Every time we go to the Glenview House we are hopeful that it will be a better experience....sadly it’s not. Grace, our server was excellent, attentive and friendly. The food came quickly but was average....the chopped salad was bland & tasteless, turkey club was made with with deli turkey and also disappointing. The fries were good! Please consider adding a little pizzazz & flavor to your menu!

The Cuban sandwich was basically a bbq pork sandwich with ham, pickles and very little cheese. The bbq sauce overwhelmed the flavor. And you don’t need mustard with bbq sauce. French fries were outstanding. I attempted to order the Paso Robles Viognier but didn’t have it. Then ordered a Beefeater gin and tonic, but didn’t carry Beefeater’s. Ended up ordering a so-so Chardonnay. Will be back, though. Service was excellent! Would like to try other menu items.

The staff worked as a team -- and made sure that our food arrived when we wanted it so that we had time to enjoy our Sunday brunch. Am looking forward to a return visit. Tom P.

The food quality seems to have deteriorated. The burgers that our group ordered although we specified different levels of fineness, all came out well done and dry. The restaurant seems to be short staffed so service was less than desired.

The most unfortunate thing about the visit to the restaurant was not something that was completely in the restaurant's control. We were seated next to a table that had about 5 or 6 children under the age of 7. While the children themselves were quite polite, they haven't learned how to control their volume. This made it very difficult to talk to the people who were right next to me. While I don't think you should excommunicate a table of children (with their parents of course) to some back corner, I feel some consideration should be paid when placing a table of adults who'd like to have a conversation or at least getting a warning. Outside of that, the food was solid, the service exceptional, and the drinks good.

This is a cute little bar restaurant with pub food. My flank steak salad was delicious and the Kahlúa cake for dessert was to die for. It is a very casual relaxed atmosphere. The wait staff was excellent.

Overall great experience. I called to ask when the kitchen was open until and was told they were doing last call but he would hold it open for us. We really appreciated this! Our waiter was great also and did not make us feel rushed at all. We come in often and are never disappointed with the food or service.

The food was good - especially liked the wings with chipotle cream sauce. The ambiance was ok - old building but not so much in a charming way. Some renovations to the front room would be good.

We ate outside which was delightful. However, inside was a bar and dark. I would not have been happy to dine that way. Also, the food fish and fish tacos both were spicy but not indicated on menu.
