Met friends recently and dined outdoors on small patio. Haven't been back here since West Street closed and then reopened. We all ordered the same dish so it was hard to judge the ragne of items on the menu. We all had the muscles in wine sauce. Plenty of muscles (though they were a bit on the small side) and... More

This is clearly a locals' place - contractors with contractor trucks in the lot, also couples of all ages, families with children. It has a nice ice beer selection, and a surprisingly charming outdoor deck tucked behind the building. The food is much better than a typical local spot- some truly delicious items. Also the staff are very welcoming.

I wonder why it takes me so long to get back. If you want that "Cheers" kind of atmosphere, this is where to go. Parking can be a bear. But persevere, and enjoy the food of normal people... who eat well. Sweet Potato fries bring me in the door, the sauce they put on their sirloin tips is plate lickingly... More

It's small but someone in the kitchen is making delicious food. Had the cod which had a light panko crust, served over crisp green beans with a side of roasted potatoes. Very nice presentation with a sort of oil and balsamic drizzle around the plate. Very tasty and fresh. Friend had the fish stew which she really enjoyed. We will... More

Definition of a neighborhood restaurant. You feel friendly and at home. Some dishes are great. Others less so. Some days are better than other. Just like home.

The fried green beans were great. We had the fish and chips as well as the steak tips. They are known for their steak tips and it's for a reason. Tender, flavorful and plentiful! The fish n chips were also tasty. Large order, plenty to eat. The service is excellent. It has a small town feel that you often miss... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the food. It was tasty. Service was a little slow but people were very friendly. I will definitely go back.

Bartenders Anthony & Kevin are sweet heart's & can make some Yum drinks. The food is not your typical bar fair its sooo much more. So... More

This is a nice neighborhood pub but I don't understand what all the fuss is about. My burger was very good and large (8 oz) but any decent pub does (or should do) burgers well. Nice selection of draft and bottled beer (again nothing special) and plenty of inexpensive wines by the glass. Our waitress was difficult to flag down... More

Myself and 3 friends visited West Street Grill the other night. Atmosphere is very pubby and comfortable. However, the bartender was a bit of an unsmiling figure...no personality at all and considering it wasn't packed, my party felt a little ignored. That, matched with the unfriendliness just kinda put us off the bar service...UNTIL we sat down. Our waitress was... More
