I ate dinner here on a Thursday night as part of a "meet the investment firm" shindig. Entree was 1/2 Norwegian salmon, 1/2 chicken, very good, mashed potatoes, and asparagus. The bottom half of each asparagus stalk was so tough and stringy as to be barely edible. Service was reasonably good... read more

This was my first visit to the Courthouse Grille. The atmosphere was nice and cozy. We tried three of the appetizers: lamb chop lolli pops, blue crab cakes, and the artichoke heart beignets. All very delicious in there own right. The chops were cooked perfectly, juicy with the right amount of seasoning and crispness. The crab cakes had nice pieces... More

Our table in front of the fireplace was waiting, with a cozy fire to warm us from the winter freeze. The manhattans were generous in size and made exactly as ordered. We enjoyed two different kinds of fish, both fresh, flavorful, and cooked perfectly. Each salad was also fresh with two tasty house made dressings. The both ten ounce house... More

We like dining in the bar area as it is very cozy and we try to sit near the fireplace for added ambiance. The wait staff is excellent and have always had a great meal.

We've been coming here for 35 years as this place has evolved. It's not Ernesto's any longer but emphasis is still on Italian food. On a recent visit my wife had a very nice Cherry Veal dish which she enjoyed. It was preceded by a minestrone soup which was rather too thick with veggies and not enough broth, but was... More

We visited the Courthouse Grille on Jan. 31, 2015. We were promptly seated in the bar area, my request, because the restaurant has a wonderful singer, located in that area. Our server, Bill K., immediately approached our table, explaining the specials. We questioned him on a couple of menu items, and he was very knowledgeable! We ordered drinks, (well prepared,...

The perch was as good as I have ever had. Although it came with the standard tartar sauce on the side, it was served with another sauce on it that was outstanding. There were ten people in our party and our waiter took care of us as if we were a party of two. He was attentive, helpful and accurate.... More

Ernestos use to be a great place butbthe new owners just dont get it. Restaurants have one thing present to dining, SERVICE SERVICE SERVICE. The service here is too little and too late. Inconsistency is not what give me the return trips to many of our favorite places and unfortunately we quit this place

We had reservations for nine, made several days on advance. They were unable to give us a private room, due to "short staffing". Three different waiters served us through the evening, and perhaps several chefs! Service was lethargic. Would go again, but not if they are "Short-staffed".
