The Cheshire Grill was a nice break from the usual restaurants that I frequent. With a cheery staff and a good variety of American fare to choose from. The fries were some of the best I have had in a while. The price was a bit high but considering the prompt service and warm atmosphere I consider it of little... More

After we ordered, we sat 1 hour before getting our food. Eggs were cold and potato orders mixed up. Staff offered to get us new eggs, but after waiting an hour for cold eggs, we declined. An offer of coffee on the house would have been a nice gesture. Probably will never go back.

Went with a friend for lunch around 12:30 and there were plenty of open seats. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The waitress even brought a sample of the soup of the day just to try before ordering. I had the Blacken Bleu Chicken and found it delicious. There were lots of options on the menu. I will be...

My mom had a friend who introduced us to this restaurant a few months back. Now, we make sure to do breakfast there every few weeks. The food is incredible. I can't get away from ordering the Breakfast Grin...it's a variation of eggs benedict. The service is friendly and fast, the cooks are friendly and obviously accomplished in their profession...

This north end local Grill has personal service by wait staff who know most of the patrons by name. The full menu is all encompassing for any taste or dietary need. Burgers and fish are a favorite, but fresh veggy dinners are a hit also.

This restaurant is either very good or very disappointing depending on the time of day and kitchen staff on duty. When the head chef is working, the food is great. When he is not overseeing the kitchen, the food can be dry, overcooked and NOT prepared in any way the way it was ordered. The waitress was extremely indifferent about... More

Great food and service at the Cheshire Grill. The bacon is REALly good. The breakfast potatoes might have been the highlight. We enjoyed a buffet they put together for Mother's Day. Everyone loved it and the waitress, owner, and executive chef we're all friendly and gave it a family feel. I recommend it for anyone in the Grand Rapids area... More
