Opened in January 2013, closed sometime late in March. Their last Facebook post was March 22, 2013. No loss here, their food was terrible and overpriced.

The staff worked hard but the kitchen must have been having a bad day- I hope - food was mediocre at best. Place is now closed don't know why, owners were redecorating the place and planning to open a resort type hotel/motel. Too bad it was a good idea. The food problem could have easily been corrected with a new... More

Had heard about this place from a friend, so went for lunch...although the entrance looks very upscale, when we looked into the dining room it looked very un-inviting. None of the tables were set, we almost turned around and walked out...finally someone came up and asked us if we were there for lunch..and told us we could seat ourselves...Ohhh k!... More

My wife and I stopped in here for a drink and decided to look at the menu. A traditional american menu but sounded excellent. The food and service was outstanding. I will recommend this to all my friends. Great find.

If you are reading reviews of this restaurant, you should check the date. This restaurant has only been open a few months and when we were there it still seemed to be settling in. The hostess thought the music started at 7 rather than 6 and seated us at a booth next to the musician. Oddly enough, the speakers were... More

We have driven by numerous times on our way to the beach. We have seen this property take many titles in the past 20+ years. Finally, we decided to stop in for dinner. We figured we didn't have anything to lose. You walk into a large bright and colorful lobby which surprised us. We asked to dine outside on the... More

We were looking for different restaurant but decided to have lunch here. Had misgivings - the menu was standard American hotel restaurant but glad we stayed. Husband had the the bleu burger. The patty was hand shaped, cooked perfectly and v. tasty. Fries were hot and crisp. I had Cobb salad with grilled chicken strips. Chicken was perfectly seasoned and... More

We had a lunch ride for our local HOG chapter today. 17 hungry bikers! We called ahead to let them know how many and they were very prepared. The food came out fresh and hot, the server was very attentive to our needs. The coffee was fresh and good, not the normal watered down coffee most places serve. Presentation of... More

This was my wife's and my first visit to the Grille and, unless I start hearing of better food and service, it will be our last. Our visit was 11:30 on a Wednesday morning. Our appetizer, cheddar-broccoli soup was disappointing. First there was no evidence of broccoli and second, it really tasted like it was made from a frozen concentrate... More
