    We usually like Kirby but the hostess staff at the front seemed stressed and they were a bit rude to us. So we left.

    Every one of our steaks was grilled to perfection. The sides were huge servings and very tasty. The service was top notch and Peyton took excellent care of our needs. The manager came out and asked us how everything was before we left. We will definitely recommend anyone to stop by to see and taste for themselves.

    5 of us plus a baby gathered for a holiday meal. We had a lovely table with excellent service. The menu is abbreviated, but all the dinners were good, from the filet to salmon to the Salisbury steak special. I especially enjoyed the half wedge salad and Brussels sprouts appetizer.

    With the introduction of local competition for higher-end dining in the area I would have expected the Grill Room to retain the quality they had 10 years ago. The restaurants with consistent, high quality, fresh food are booked. This restaurant was not booked and we found out why. Unfortunate.

    This was a very disappointing experience. From the quality of food (taste), to the service (slow), to the ambience (a large, open room with the people in the next booth talking on their SPEAKER phone), to the price ($120+ for two meals and drinks), the entire evening was a letdown.

    We were visiting the area and wanted a high end meal. The Kirby House is very nice and has several options depending on the type of food you want. We ate in the Grill Room. We discovered they had just removed their rosemary chicken dish from the menu, but they made it for us upon request. We also enjoyed some delicious cocktails.

    We were hoping the Grill Room reopening would take us back to how it used to be but the food was not good. Chaotic check-in process. Service was good but that doesn’t make up for low quality food.

    This is NOT the Grill room I remember. Asked for bread service? They came out with some greasy cheese garlic bread on a pizza tin and charged me $10 for it. Really disgusting mushrooms that used to be a favorite on the menu, came out looking like lumpy milk with chopped raw onion on top, we asked to have it removed, couldn't eat it, charged $15 for that. Ordered mashed potatoes but was told they are out of the ingredients to make mashed potatoes. Ordered the filet medium well, was served bloody. Figured I might as well drink if I can't eat, glass of wine was served in a wine glass with a big lipstick mark on the rim and fingerprints all over. I cannot believe I paid $120.00 plus a 20% tip for this. NEVER again. We had been grill room customers for almost 20 years before this. I have no idea what happened here, but it isn't good.

    We were there Saturday evening and the service was terrible. We sat at our table for 30 minutes before taking our drink order and everything went down hill from there. I don’t know if he was having a bad day or just rude or over worked but it was a horrible experience and it was very embarrassing since we were hosting out friends from out of town and had been talking up the restaurant. Unfortunately we will not be back and will not recommend Kirby. I would highly recommend Benjamin look for another line of work.

    Valentines Eve dinner was just average. The expectation was for fine dining for this event and just didn't feel that way. No table cloths, wait staff were wearing casual t-shirts and looked rather unprofessional. The surf and turf portion was small and the filet was over cooked. Food was warm not hot and the blue cheese-stuffed olives in my gin martini were very small. We were looking forward to visiting a restaurant we once really enjoyed in the past but it is not the same...We will not be returning.

    Top notch in all respects. Nice, upscale but not stuffy restaurant with delicious steaks (which we always get when we come here). Cocktails are strong and good. Our server was friendly, efficient, and helped me with the rewards app — so I got $25 off my bill because it was my birthday.

    When you goto an upper scale Steak House, you expect all of your food to be prepared to higher level. When our food came to the table there was not one thing on the plate that was hot. All the food came out luke warm at best. The flavor of the food was good, just not served hot. When you are paying that kind of money for a dinner, you expect a better presentation of food. I probably will not return to that restaurant again.

    Pricey for the caliber of the food. Preparations are a little over zealous for what used to be a true “grill room” menu. Ambiance was great. Our waiter was fair, unlike Ben who is always outstanding.

    Second time there. Birthday dinner for myself. Used Gilmore Birthday meal discount. Had NY strip, cooked correctly but not a prime cut. Hard to find a great steak without going to GR. Great Happy Hour deals in the bar, before the meal. Waiter was very accommodating, offering wine tastes before ordering. Great job!
