The food was great. They had a table waiting for us. More of a casual place. They have a good size bar but a restaurant quality menu. Parking is tough because of location but still a great place to go.

We live in the neighborhood and had eaten here once many years ago. I can’t recall why we never returned but we tried it before the movie at the Rialto the other night. It was actually a very pleasant experience. Our server was excellent. The menu is huge , which made me a bit nervous, but everything we had was really good and fresh . We were very pleased and since a neighborhood -y place we loved and frequented closed a while back we were on the lookout for another place as our go-to casual eatery.
It was a bit noisy as it was packed and it maybe could use a little sprucing up but overall it really fit the bill. Lots of wine choices and a decent size pour. 2of us had the chicken pot pie, excellent and I had the wedge salad with grilled shrimp also very nice. There is a wood burning oven. The roast chicken looked terrific. It’s a menu that goes from A-to Z so no problem finding something . It was super crowded with people going to the movies so I would suggest a reservation to make sure you get seated. It’s that kind of place... popping in for good food even several times a week. Thanks, The Point for a very nice experience! See you soon!

Always love the point. Great food and drink and friendly service in a neighborhood location. Check out their pizza buffet during the week!

First visit and won’t be our last! We had a great dining experience at The Point at Glenwood. The food was great! We tried several appetizers - all very good. Build your own pizza, fish wrapped in parchment paper and a wood fired steak. The wait staff was very attentive, food was prompt and prepared properly. Great experience!

Food, wine, and service were all excellent. It was a bit loud for my taste but I think it was a bit busier than usual tonight for some reason. I will most definitely go back.

Our group enjoyed the atmosphere, loved the menu options, the food was very good and service was great!

We originally made reservations for 7 people. We called that day to increase it to 10 and they were very accommodating. We then called back and asked if we could increase to 14. We were told they were going to be full and unfortunately, they couldn't do a table for 14. When we arrived we were very pleasantly surprised that they had a table set for 14 of us! It was great because our plan was to just split up and have some of our party sit at the bar . .we didn't need to. Would definitely recommend!

Diverse menu. Burgers to pizza to seafood. Enjoyed the sesame encrusted tuna!

The brunch was nice, but some of the food was cold and seemed like the staff was not entirely prepared when they opened. The person on the omelet station was yelling and cursing and stating he does not get paid enough to do this. I would try time again once they have worked out all of the kinks.

Always good, very friendly. Great spot! Dress is casual to business casual. Kids can make their own pizza.

We had dinner here on New Year's Eve. My husband and I both ordered steaks and they were both extremely over-done.

Family friendly. Easy. Good beer. Enjoyed the casual atmosphere and variety of food. Pizza a little on spicy side.

We were there on a Saturday night at 7pm. Very noisy! very distracting. Food just ok for the price. We had heard good things about the Restaurant, but were disappointed.

Excellent neighborhood restaurant that is unpretentious with very good food, a wide selection, and a consistency that can be counted on.
