A restaurant hidden away from the main road, Within the Winter Gardens complex , not hard to find.It has a good range on the menu,the starters are to die for ,the main courses are well thought out and good value for money.There was plenty to eat without having to go for the sweet menu. The white wine is of a... More

If you like art deco you'll love this place. Lovely restaurant setting in the middle of the Winter Gardens, handy for pre-show meals. Staff very friendly and helpful and despite a warning about a wait on food they turned the meal around fairly quickly. Not a great quality steak but very nice chips and garnish, wine ok, overall price of... More

We ate at the Empress Grill in Blackpool's Winter Gardens before watching Lee Mack on 22.11.14. The 4 of us all had a starter and Main course with 1 bottle of wine it came to £66, which we think is excellent value. We all enjoyed the food very much and we would definately recommend.

Been here a couple of times now....good to see a decent restaurant in Blackpool. Good service, timely and no rush. Food was enjoyable and well presented, tasting as good and good value for money. Only downside ...never know when it's open as few times returned to find closed... Well worth the visit and will be frequenting again.

I have been here twice before a show. The menu was different both times with a good choice for each course. The portions were a decent size and the presentation and taste were very good. At £15 for 3 courses this is excellent value.

absolutely brilliant. great service, not a very extensive menu, but our food was topnotch. Food was well presented and perfectly cooked. Staff could not have been more helpful, especially Jimmy. This is a hidden gem of a restaurant and we will definitely return. My only comment was the lack of wine choices, should have been able to order by the... More

We came here before we went to watch Mama Mia for my nans birthdays. The food was lovely and the menu had a good range of choices. The deal was a brilliant offer and the price was fantastic. The only thing I could fault is that service was quite slow considering we had to be in the theatre for 7.30pm,... More

Booked as a deal with ticket to Abba musical. Was quite sceptical as the meal was included in the price of the ticket. But eh, what a pleasant surprise, food was very hot, service was great, not a large selection of each of the three courses but sufficient. Chose homemade soup starter which was very tasty and served with lovely... More
