Nice Place, Good Meal.

We went on a Friday night. It was crowded, but we were able to get a table right away. Our server Regan was great, she was friendly and never rushed us. We had broiled scallops that came with rice and a vegetable, and an order of lobster risotto. Both meals were served promptly and were hot and... read more

Chowda was good...chili is not like it used to be. Male bartenders nicer than the female. Seems like they show favoritism to the locals.

We were looking for live music and lucked out here by chance on a Sunday night. There was a fantastic jazz / blues band playing downstairs - very talented and lots of energy. Everyone was in good spirits and the dancing was wonderfully fun. Drinks and cover to get in were expensive, but the ambiance and quality of music was... More

We were in town for a wedding and went to the Grog after a cruise on the river. It had a fantastic craft beer selection. We were able to find a quiet place to sit and relax. It did get very crowded toward the end of the night which made it challenging to close out our bill (only two bar... More

I've been to The Grog many times -- it's been a sentimental favorite for quite a number of years. I'll admit to having tried other places but The Grog keeps calling. Yes, you might find a long line -- but I consider that a good sign. Seafood is steep always so I can't say there is a bargain but the... More
