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

Have been to many restaurants over the years,and the Holy Grail is by far my family's favorite! We don't live close by however it's a meeting place for my family that brings us together with traditional Irish dishes. We have spent Mother's Day with the Holy Grail family among many other times and we have ALWAYS had EXCELLENT service and... More

Arrived at noon on a Sunday with a large group; place was clean, comfortable and staff was ready and efficient. Separate checks were happily arranged-unusual and exceptional courtesy for such a multi tabled adult and kids group. Menu is extensive and with good prices. Had a BLT wrap, companions had onion soup and casear salad. All meals were delicious and... More

My hardest part of going to the "Holy Grail" is what to get. The fish and chips are battered well and have a nice flavor and not greasy. The bangers and mash is one of my favorites and the gravy could be served in half pint glasses. The pot pie is soooo good and very filling. Service is good but... More

We sat on the beautiful patio for beers and some very delicious fried calamari and had a great time. We will be going back soon for the Wednesday night "Date Night" menu for 2 for $46.00. It looks awesome and our server praised it highly!

I've been to the Grail before--sat at the bar with friends and had snacks/apps--which is fun. This time I met someone for dinner. I had the swordfish special. The fish was dry and really over cooked. I ordered the "fresh" veggie side--carrots and summer squash. I was shocked to receive those processed baby carrots from the bag with 2 small... More

When I agreed to meet a friend here, I didn't realize the restaurant had been converted from a church and nearly drove right by. The decor respects the building's former purpose. The stained glass windows and polished wood add a warm ambiance. I ordered the goat cheese and pear salad, a generous entree with carmelized pears, warm cheese, fresh mesclun,... More
