Dear JuieandAlexG, Thank you for your review! It's great to hear you enjoyed your recent experience at the Grill House and our famous frozen margaritas!

Had a wonderful birthday meal at the Grill House in St Andrews. The meal was very well presented, ribeye steak done to perfection. I then ordered hot fudge chocolate cake with ice cream and was very impressed on how light the cake was. Staff were very attentive throughout our meal and a very relaxed atmosphere throughout the restaurant . Would... More

We came here with 2 grandsons for lunch, the kids like it here, the food took a wee while to come, but worth the wait! Whilst waiting, the kids colour in, and they have their own menu.

Dropped in for lunch and was not disappointed. Two courses for £9.95, great value Mexican food served by friendly and attentive staff. Will certainly return, but may get busier once students return to town. Best to book?

Ideal after a brisk walk in the cold winds of St. Andrews. Good value 2 course meal. Service pleasant. Cosy welcoming rooms and tables well spaced. Kids menu good value. Has Mexican theme but there are additional options. Nachos were better than what you usually get.
