The Holy Grail is a former church that evidently was abandoned, put on the auction block and is now a sports bar/family restaurant. Kudos to the owners for maintaining the beautiful stained glass and much of the original building. This is clearly a very popular restaurant. It was packed the day we visited and we were fortunate to find two... More

My husband and I visited The Holy Grail with friends who recommended it. We love what we ordered. I had the seafood chowder and it was thick and delicious. My husband had the butternut squash ravioli which was also very tasty. Our server was great. We would definitely recommend this unique restaurant which offers the "holy" experience.

This remade church is absolutely gorgeous, but the food and prices were NOT. Three of our fig and blue cheese stuffed potato skins had absolutely no blue cheese at all and the extremely sweet fig desperately needed toning down but the balsamic vinegar didn't do the job. The potato slices were perfectly sliced and cooked, though. The fish and chips... More

Went there for lunch with hubby and friend. We all had the seafood chowder and it was very good. I had a pretty dang good Reuben (been on the search for the perfect one) and our friend had the pulled pork, which he said was very good. Hubby's Seafood Trio wasn't so great, according to him, although there were some... More

Two years ago, I had the best Fish and Chips and the Best Beef Stew I had ever tasted. I went back last fall and had the same order. The beef stew was way too salty, which I got over because that can happen. The a fish was simply not that special and lacked that great flavor of the first... More

2nd time visiting this restaurant in the past year. Tonight it seemed there was some confusion as to who was waiting on our table thus causing some mumbled, disgruntled words between the hostess and waitress. Once sorted out, service was ok, friendly, but a little on the slow side. Band came on around 7:30 and was way too loud for... More

We went here recently on a busy Friday evening. We brought my brother to show him the interesting repurposing of a church into a restaurant. The place was packed and consequently VERY loud. We had a pleasant waitress who served us quickly. My husband's prime rib was mostly fat and overdone. My salmon was promised as "fresh" but was more... More

This was our first visit to The Holy Grail for lunch and what an interesting, fun restaurant. The restaurant is a remodeled church with the choir loft, stained glass windows and all. It was fascinating looking around while waiting for drinks to arrive. Our waitress was very nice, drinks were good and the food was very good. We started off... More

We had wanted to visit the Holy Grail for sometime but weren’t able to work it into our plans. After our recent visit, we wished we had come sooner. The restaurant is in a totally remodeled church. The high ceilings and stained glass windows create a great atmosphere. My pastrami sandwich and my wife’s burger were excellent although she did... More

The food smelled wonderful. But we were there to have drinks and see a band. The entertainment was awesome. They had a lot of beers on tap and the place is so quaint. It is an old church. So you can see where the altar was and they have a big statue of a friar by the front. great place
