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".

I live going to the Courthouse Grille for a cocktail, appetizers and the fabulous singer in the bar. It is a relaxing and fun atmosphere. The bartender, Gretchen, is a doll.

I've been here for lunches as well as dinner;loved it!! The salad that I really like at lunch had nuts and cheese and dried cherries. It is so good. It is a nice place to take others; we sat by the fireplace one wintry evening for dinner; it was just wonderful. The service was very good as well. It's also... More

Our family was looking for a place to eat out in Plymouth. My husband picked this place and we ate outside. It was kid of weird because you had to walk through the kitchen to get outiside but they have a nice deck area. The food is good and the kids liked the deck area.

I have been to the Courthouse Grille Restaurant many times, and the food and service are always great! For the first time, we dined on a Sunday afternoon into evening. Two families dined at long tables. Baby and wedding showers were ending in some of the many rooms throughout the restaurant. One wall in the main dining room is all... More

First time I have been here in many years. Tried it out of curiosity and a groupon. The food was very good I had pecan crust walleye, my husband had the lasagna. Bread after salad was different, not sure it was intentional think the server just forgot. The seating needs to be fixed, there room was about half full, yet... More

We decided to try this restaurant after seeing the $50 for $25 groupon. Sadly, the restaurant has a very "funeral home" like atmosphere with half melted Glade candles all over the window as you walk in, like it's trying to disguise a smell. We started with a pitcher of sangria-more like cloudy orange juice and vodka with an orange wedge... More

TERRIBLE food, SLOW service, restaurant has musty, moldy smell the minute you walk in and OUTRAGEOUS pricing for what we had. Not too mention the 20.00 gratuity added on! VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! Used to love it when it was Ernesto's! Will NEVER go back!
