I went with a group of 7, everyone enjoyed their meals from chicken to steak and the prices are reasonable. I would go back.

I've been on the road going on a month and to find what felt like a home cooked meal is a blessing. Priced right family friendly with a fully stocked bar ;). Baked bread on a cutting board is a nice touch. Glad I ventured off the highway and outta my hotel. Friendly enough staff looks clean enough and cool... More

Grassfields is a typical chain restaurant with very a reasonably priced lunch menu. The food was very good and the service was very good as well. Come on the early side if you are in a hurry as it gets busy. Quality was good and the portions were generous. Good value

I have eaten here a couple of different times and the food is always good. The staff is very nice and eager to accommodate any request. Try the chicken teriyaki, you won't be disappointed. The salads are also quite large and could be shared. It can be busy around the 6-8 timeframe, but quiets down right after that.

Our group of 10 went for lunch on a Saturday. The restaurant, located in a shopping center, has a nice casual, clean atmosphere. They have a good selection of appetizers, and the seafood stuffed mushrooms and the fried zucchini sticks were the standouts. Their salads are large and tasty, and the entrees we had were all very good. Portions are... More

Grassfields is a neighborhood hangout in a shopping center, with a well worn ambiance and good service. There's a decent beer and wine selection. We enjoyed the lobster pie and salads. Prices are very reasonable.

I went out to eat at Grassfield's in Waltham for the first time this past Saturday evening. We arrived early about 5 p.m. and were brought to a solitary booth in the back of the restaurant. The waitress arrived quickly and got our drink order. Once she arrived with the drinks we told her we needed more time. This was... More

I ordered take out and was pleasantly surprised by the quick pick up time. I asked for the Wedge salad and it was very good. There were two cups of blue cheese dressing even though I didn't ask for it. Usually restaurants charge extra for blue cheese, let along offer two. I had the lobster bake with beef tips. The...
