Located on the grounds of the Oak Creek community, the Grove stems from a rich history that began in 1819, where the original eight hundred and fifty acres of land was filled with Oak trees that has now become the foundation for this community. The word Grove serves as a metaphor between the many families who represent our community and a group of oaks which is the symbol of “strength” and “endurance”. The Grove is a casual fine dining experience meant to bring family and friends together. Sleek, inviting, and comfortable design elements makes The Grove the perfect place to Be, Eat, and Celebrate.

The food was not good at all. I think you all changed chefs. I eat there often.

I listed all “Poor” because The Grove didn't have our reservation in their records. I called ahead of time to ask for an outdoor table and they said they had no record of our reservation. They blamed opentable for “not working well.” By the time I called they had no tables so we were out of luck. The first person I spoke with was pretty rude. The second person was nicer but still blamed Opentable and couldn't accommodate us. It would have been nice to try their food.

Need to badly modify or add some variety to their brunch/breakfast menu. It's been the same since I've been going there.

I can’t remember the bartender’s name, but she said she was only there on Sunday’s and she was AMAZING! All of her suggestions from food to drinks (including subs because she didn’t have a particular alcohol for a drink my friend wanted) were great. She was attentive but not overbearing and she never made us feel rushed. Everyone there was so friendly and welcoming. My best friend and I agreed that it would be our new regular spot!

We visited The Grove for my wife’s birthday. We enjoyed it very much. The Honey Old Bay wings were yummy. I ordered the fried catfish it was ok… mine was cooked a bit too much, but still enjoyable. The Mac and cheese could use some work but the greens were great. My wife had the bread pudding and she said it was AMAZING!!! The best part of the night was the amazing staff.. they made us feel very special. Also they have a very nice heated patio which is a vibe all by itself.

I brought a family member with me that had never been there before. We both enjoyed ourselves. Nacy at the bar was an excellent server and made up for our server that didn't pay much attention to us. We are also interested in reserving an area for a function. Shemayn Gray 240.462.6659

I love the ambiance and vibe at The Grove. I did not enjoy the food and drinks. We were there for Taco Tuesday and ordered the salmon, chicken and carnita tacos. The salmon tasted fishy, much stronger than salmon is expected to taste. The carnita tasted like barbecue pork taken out of a package and chicken had no flavor at all.

My lemon drop martini was made with lemon juice from a bottle, not fresh squeezed lemon juice, which is a main component of the recipe. I wish they would have told me they did not have/did not use fresh lemons; I would have ordered something else.

All that being said, I had a great time there. I will limit my order to a salad and wine, so the food will not detract from the ambiance and gorgeous view of the venue.

It was excellent. The service was very good and the food was excellent. The venue is beautiful and nicely laid out. I was a little disappointed that there was no acknowledgment of my daughters birthday though. However everything else was impeccable.

The food was good once we got it;, almost 2 hours. There was five people in the dining room when we arrived. The service was terrible. If I had to guess I would way the waitress was new.

Menu selection was poor. There was no one at the restaurant and yet our meals arrived at different times, and our server forgot to put in the order for half of our meals. Between waiting and repeatedly following up w our server to ask where our food was, dinner took over 4 hours. It was one of the worst restaurant experiences of my life. To make matters worse, the server didn’t apologize or realize it was a bad experience.

Whoever the chef’s are deserve a raise.
Very easy to get a table with indoor and outdoor seating. The best fried fish Mac & Cheese and collard greens I’ve had from a restaurant. I would’ve returned the next day if it wasn’t a hour away from me.

Food was good. Menu was limited. Server was mediocre. She was kind, but slow. Part of my order for cold waiting on the rest of my order. She kept forgetting the sauce I asked for. So overall the visit was ok.

I love the Grove! Gary and Necy are awesome, friendly, energetic, personable, and professional. Necy is so flexible in how she prepares beverages and truly caters to the person. Necy’s mixology skills are outstanding and creates delicious concoctions. Beverages that I’ve tried and not liked, I’ve enjoyed at the Grove.

I went there with my wife and daughter. They both ordered the old bay wings. They were delish! I ordered the Ox Tails and again, the food was delish. I had visited this place for a Sunday brunch a couple of years ago and was disappointed, however, their food game has been stepped up quite a bit. We sat outside and enjoyed the COVID-free environment. Love this spot for a drink and an outdoor cigar, etc. Good Spot.
