Returned for lunch with friends after a long absence

Four of us stopped in for lunch on a week day. I haven't returned under this ownership in some time. Surprised to see the changes to the interior "design", very dark and drab. Dark purple walls, purple plastic tablecloths, grey carpeting, black furniture....ugh! They do have tables outside (on... read more

Very friendly with excellent service. We return here at least twice each summer. The sticky toffee pudding is wonderful.

Very pleasant, very efficient, and the food is top-notch. Our Sole/blue crab and Halibut/lobster dishes were excellent. Tucked away from downtown, this restaurant is an eating gem. Every time we have eaten here [winter as well] the food has been remarkable.

I've been eating fish and chips at all the restaurants on the Cape for the past two weeks, and they were the best at this restaurant. Although the portions look on the small side when the plate arrives, I was quite full when I finished. Was a very nice place to eat.

Not sure why the Academy Grill is not ranked any higher on this web site. We ate at several other restaurants in Orleans and we felt that this is where we had our best lunch of our vacation as well as our best dinner. My husband had the Academy swordfish and he thought it was among the best swordfish he... More

Academy Grille is a super friendly place with a very nice atmosphere inside and at the bar. The outside is a bit too close to the road for me, but some people like it. The small plates or tapas are all well done and can easily make a meal with a salad. The bartender makes great drinks and the lobster... More

We found ourselves in Orleans and needed lunch. We found AOG on Open Table and decided to try it. It was a great idea. The food was excellent. Great varied menu. Excellent service. It's well worth a visit. Find it and try it. You won't be disappointed!

While there is no ocean view, it is well worth going to this fine dining restaurant anytime you can. You should note that Academy Place where the restaurant is located is a one way street. To access the parking lot go down Main Street and turn left onto Academy Place. The entrance to the parking lot is immediately on the... More

Awesome food! Excellent tapas menu and excellent swordfish! I had my meal at the bar. It was a training shift for Al behind the bar. If he hadn't told me, I would have never guessed. If you're away from home for any reason, work (like me) or vacation, enjoy a meal and/or drink here!

The food was delicious with good presentation. The service was friendly and responsive, and the price was reasonable. Would highly recommend and will definitely return. New ownership of the restaurant has made a wonderful difference.
