I ALWAYS order the BLT here - they make their bacon in-house encrusted in brown sugar. Too die for!! My friend and I were trying to be 'healthy' so we ordered the maple glazed salmon on a bed of quinoa and swiss chard. It was excellent and perfectly cooked. I would order it again but my only comment was the... More

Have you ever wanted a do-over after eating a meal? This happened to us after our lunch at The Grill on Main. Very mediocre meals. I had the chicken tortilla soup. I've had better. Actually, I like this soup more brothy than creamy. No crackers or bread were offered with this bowl of soup. My husband had a salad which,... More

We went to dinner with friends, this place has a nice patio and a great feel. Our server was very good, she came out right away and was there at just the right time. I had the lobster mac n cheese and it was ok, not great. Everyone else said their dinner was good, my drink was great. They do... More

The server was very helpful, and the staff would bend over backwards to make your night great, and they did!

Located in Old town La Quinta. Eaten there for lunch, but not dinner as yet. Would probably have given a 5 but many in our party ordered the same salad and may have ovèrwhelmed the kitchen. Great place to people watch while sitting near the street.

Went there for a late night dining, stayed outside although it was pretty hot outside. The food was good as was the service, a good place to visit if in the old town.

We went to The Grill on Main with friends, and were not disappointed. The ambience and atmosphere is just perfect for this gem. We have known owner Brett, when he was with Arnold Palmers and are so happy he has opened his own place. The food is great, the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly, not to pricey and family...

Excellent restaurant. Very hot so the outside seating was not an option for us. Wife had the cheese appetizers and the hot wings. Very good. I had the 1/2 dozen fresh oysters from British Columbia and the seared ahi. Both very good. Jenny, our server was excellent and she told us about the happy hours from 2 to 6. They... More

We wanted to go to the Hog's Breath restaurant, owned by Clint Eastwood, to find out they went out of business the day before. So we went around the corner to the Grill restaurant. We sat outside - weather prefect. The atmosphere, service and food were outstanding. I had the cobb salad which was different from what I expected, but... More
