Don't let the name fool you....

This is fine dinning with a beautiful setting. Extensive wine list! Known for their lobster tails and filet's, they also have a great mix of fresh sea food plus an amazing rack of lamb. You must save room for the molten chocolate cake! Well worth the trip!

We were looking for special place to celebrate my brother and sister in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. This was recommended by a friend of our niece. We had a party of 13, with all guests being from outside the Kansas City area. This was an excellent recommendation. Table was ready we arrived and we were seated promptly. Dinner selections were wonderful.... More

Celebrated my friend's birthday here. Had drinks on the patio before dinner with view of the lake. Dinner was fabulous, I had Hawaiian fish dish, my friend had filet mignon. Appetizer was calamari, enormous house salad, banana pudding dish for dessert. Good selection of wine. Great serving staff. Wonderful evening.

I had the bacon wrapped scallops, a Cesar salad, a bowl of clam chowder, the Mahi Mahi as my main course, 2 different types of chardonnay and a slice of cheesecake to finish it off. The food was excellent, the service by our waiter Tony was spot on, and I would compare the food and service with any fine dining... More

I don't normally write reviews, but this experience was so utterly outrageous, I can hardly believe it happened. No the customer is NOT always right, but when they are paying what the MGG is asking, they SHOULD be. My fella wanted to take us somewhere "special" yesterday, and had heard from someone else, who also had heard, good things about... More

What a wonderful time we had at The Grog! The service was 5-Star and food incredible. This is one of the best gems in the Kansas City area!

MGG was a place that had sounded interesting for several years. My Lee's Summit friends had said it was very good. Living in Kansas City it took a groupon to get us out there. The dining room has a open quality that allowed for enjoying the atmosphere -- we were not there during the outdoor season and I can see... More

I booked a table at the Galley for a Sunday evening, calling several days in advance. The owner assured us that he'd have a nice table for us. We drove 35 miles, armed with a Groupon certificate, and were shocked to find a sign on the door that they were closed for a private party. We went in and found... More

When my wife and I visit our grandkids we try to get out one night by ourselves. When we are in the mood for something special this is our destination. We have visited several times and at varying seasons. Each visit has been a joy. I do not understand the review ranting about the owner. I have found him to... More
