The food was so good we had to order two appetizers. The crab cakes and corn fritters are sinful! Our waitress, Julia, was incredibly sweet and helpful; we had to pull the manager aside to give our compliments. Best scallops and pot pie we’ve ever tasted!

It was my husband’s birthday and they made sure to give him a lovely sorbet with berries and a sparkler. The server was very attentive and the steaks were cooked perfectly. The side of mushrooms were ok. I was expecting more flavor and it was bland. The burrata salad was also a bit bland. Other than that, everything was great.

Because of COVID we sat on the patio. The only thing I did not like about it was that one side of the patio had tent walls and I thought there was not good air circulation to prevent COVID spread. Other than that , the dinner was great.

We were freezing and they refused to move our table to a warmer section. The service was horrible. Our waitress told us the tables were reserved for other people with reservations when we also made reservations , They definitely did not treat us equally. The food was absolutely tasteless. I would never go back.

This has always been one of our "go to" places in the area. Still is. It's nice to have the option these days of indoor seating, and the booths are quite comfortable. The food is always exceptional, and the service also.

That evening was my wife's birthday. Grill on the Alley enhanced this special occasion.

Love the Grill. It's our favorite "GO TO" neighborhood restaurant.
The service is outstanding. Our waitress always remembers us and even knows which drink we want. So glad you are there.

The service here was really great! We sat outside and the ambience was very nice. The food was delicious, the only issue was that we had ordered a burger to be prepared medium well but it came out between rare and medium. They graciously and quickly provided a brand new burger prepared as requested and it was delicious! We had soup, salad, burger and dessert and everything was great! A little pricey but it was a much-needed night out. Our waitress was friendly and accommodating. We would definitely go back to The Grill on the Alley again.
