My family of six and I arrived at the restaurant at 6 pm. There was another large party of six and a couple of tables of two people. Not what I would call crowded by any means. By the time our food arrived at 7:20 pm (yes...7:20....an hour and 20 minutes after we ordered) one of our four year old... More

My family went over 4th of July for the Re-Grand Opening of the Grille. I would not recommend this restaurant for children. They only have 1 highchair and a sign posted that reads something about kids not being really welcome- It is one of those Joke signs, but I still found it tacky and thought they might be serious since...

By far the worst food I have ever had. Most frozen and heated. It was so bad the first time I went, that I had to go again just to see if it just was a bad night for the chef, nope, its that bad all the time. Why this place is still open is a mystery, Even if they... More

Looking for a good burger menu at a reasonable price this is your place. The burger menu has unique choices and comes with a heap of fries.

The food is not bad, however the owner/manager is one of the rudest, negative, drunk and unprofessional "business persons" I have ever come across. I have seen her yell at customers for no reason. It reminds me of the Soup Nazi character from Seinfeld. Please do some research on this place before you give them your business. There are much... More

Under the new management this has become one of our favorite dining spots. Adequate parking, easy to access of Rte. 156. Pleasant service. The meals have all be excellent and are reasonably priced.

We ordered the stuffed mushroom as an appetizer. Excellent, then we dipped some of the warm bread in the left over liquid. Yum. Ordered the seafood dinner for two(30.00) made with wine as opposed to the same dinner with Alfredo sauce. Can't remember when we had a tastier meal. Lobster, scallops, and shrimp were cooked to perfection. On a previous... More

My family and I enjoyed a delicious lunch at The Grille restaurant on a Sunday afternoon. We ordered stuffed potato skins for an appetizer. They were nicely prepared; and there was plenty to share among the three of us. Next we had the homemade soup of the day, butternut squash and crab bisque. It was outstanding!! I am practically drooling... More

On a quick visit to Old Lyme, we couldn't go home without seafood. We had driven past The Grille on our way in & when sight-seeing. We decided to try it for dinner. The service was outstanding - even redirecting the vents on the a/c because it was a bit chilly. The food arrived in short order and our jaws... More
