Great find - worth leaving the beaten path

Ok, so City Grill is not a place you'll find on the waterfront. We came here to eat because the line at Lulu's was insane. But still...go there. We went here in July while vacationing in Gulf Shores, and the food was amazing. The wait staff was laid back, friendly, and attentive. They offer... read more

City Grill looks to no longer be open at its location in the Rouse's Plaza. I don't know if they are relocating. I learned that Fish River Grill, which has restaurants in Fairhope and Foley, will be opening in City Grill's location. This could be good news for those who like cajun-type food.

Just so you know we had no problem with the food. The restaurant is ver plain jane inside but the prices are that of a fine restaurant. My wife and I each dad a sandwich and a glass of water and the bill was $27.00. As I said the food was good but not that price good.

Cost was fair for a burger with fries $$, but it was just ok. No atmosphere, No music, and service was a little slow. It is located in a strip mall, so it isn't open late. Someone should share the secret that "cities" are busy and noisy. It needs something.

My wife and I ate at the City Grill on 10-3-2014. First, I want to say that the hostess, waitress and bar tender were all very nice. We even gave the waitress a tip since she did not cook the meal. The wheels fell off soon after our arrival. For appetizers we ordered the fried crawfish tails and conch fritters.... More

One of the locals favorite spots for sushi as well as burgers and such. I enjoy the great selection of craft beers on tap as well.

My friends and I found this restaurant via Foursquare and we were very impressed! The food was delicious and the staff were hospitable. The only thing was the menu posted via Foursquare was different than the actual menu, price-wise, so we spent a bit more than expected. Overall, it was a great experience!

City Grill is a definite recommendation. The live music is fantastic and the menu has good variety and even features good sushi. My only critique is that the men's restroom could have been cleaner.

It's a little pricey for me but I wasn't paying!! The service was great and the hostess was so refreshingly sweet! I think her name is Reagan! The waitress was very nice and very quick with drinks. The food was delicious and I got my friend from up north to try grits for the first time! She loved them! Perfect... More

FOOD: The Filet was amazing and the sauce excellent beyond words. My crew ate sushi and really enjoyed it. The Turtle Cheesecake is very different but really amazing. The Special was Pork Stuffed with Shrimp...and while that sounds good it was very bland so much so I asked for them to take it back because I felt awful that everyone... More
