Steakhouse
After over 35 years in the restaurant business, you learn what simply does not cut it. We’ve crafted an experience born from perfecting the classic service of the great American steakhouse. When it comes to food, we are fearless. We explore new flavors and aren’t afraid to leave a few grill marks in the goal of serving the perfect meal. In our contemporary steakhouse, you’ll enjoy exceptional cuts cooked over a live oak fire, robust sides and impeccable wines and spirits in a chic ambiance with modern décor. We do not settle. At The Grill, you’ll recognize it from the first bite. The philosophy is simple. We work with only the best ingredients. As for those who believe that “a steak is just a steak?” we will prove otherwise...

    Brunch at the Grill, sitting on the paito, is always memorable. It's the kind of place where the waiter remembers you, your drink order and how you like your dishes prepared. Service is always top notch, food is amazing....order the truffle fries if you get the chance. We will greatly miss this place and the people working there who made it so special over the past several years.

    Outdoor patio was beautiful. Food was very good; steaks awesome. Hadn’t been in a while, but it appears they no longer provide the complimentary bread prior to the main. Service was unusually slow. Our waiter had several tables and always seemed distracted. Twice we had to ask for our waiter so we could order.

    Generally very good food and excellent service. But the rib eye steak was ordered medium and should have been pink inside but it was over cooked and brown. We didn’t send it back because we didn’t want to wait. Otherwise it was very good. Waiter was terrific.

    Sadly, this restaurant used to be one of our Favorites! It was always bustling with people in the bar, in the restaurant and those trying to get into both. Now, it is a ghost town. I suspect this starts at the top and works its way down. There were only four occupied tables (at 7:30 on a Thursday evening), including ours and it took longer to receive service, food or check than if the place were standing-room-only. The worst part though, was that the food just wasn't worth the wait. We unfortunately will not be returning as it has been progression to get to this point.

    Visiting from out of state and had a fantastic experience. Staff was very attentive and accommodating. The weather was so nice we sat outside on the patio. Their Happy Hour items are a real bargain without cutting corners. Especially if you are an oyster lover. Would come back and definitely recommend.

    Thought it would be a good experience - good service, nice atmosphere. But my steak was over cooked and bland, and my wife’s steak had a very bad taste. We asked for a replacement, it was provided, and it had a very bad taste as well - hard to describe: like plastic smoke. They did comp her meal, and the service was gracious. I don’t think I’ll go again.

    We usually really like it here, which is why we continue to come back. However, we didn't have the best experience this time around. Our waitress and her ability to provide the level of service we've experienced previously fell very short. Not sure if she's new or that her service style isn't a match for this restaurant. I won't go into details on the many unprofessional things that happened, but we did intentionally cut our evening short in order to preserve our opinion on the restaurant overall and possibly return in the future.
