Driven by for years & finally decided to try it-Restaurant was a surprise!

Waiter was excellent, food was good - filet mignon and chicken giambotta (garlic mashed and sautéed spinach sides very flavorful). Highly recommend selecting a specific table. Overall, worth the visit.

High level restaurant from all points of view! Service is very good there, all we ate was very tasty! Wine selection is very good, same about the bar. Ask about specials- they always have new things to offer. That is one of the best restaurants we have ever tried in States.

Whether for lunch or for dinner, you can always be sure to enjoy whatever you order at Nero's Grille. The menu is varied, whether you want a snack or a meal, the food is delicious, and the service is excellent.

We visited Nero's for the first in years during the beginning of a recent snowstorm. I'm glad we went back. We were served great meals in a pleasant manner despite the staff's desire to close up and beat the storm. Nero's has a great atmosphere and a nice bar. Definitely worth a visit.

Met some old business associates/friends on a weekday night for dinner. It had been years since I was last at Nero's. Back then the food and atmosphere were wonderful. I am happy to say that is still the case. I was surprised how busy they were for a mid week evening. Yet, our service was excellent from the moment we... More

I have friends that love this place. I have eaten here at least 5 times. Of all the times I have eaten here, only 1 time did I actually enjoy my food (and that was this recent trip). This time, I ordered Chicken Nero. It was good. The service is excellent. It is fun to watch the singles at the... More

Booked a last minute dinner at Neros on a Friday night. Sat in the large dining room- which I prefer. Had delicious mushroom truffle thin crust pizza, excellent chopped salad and more. The waitress could not have been more accommodating when one of our party did not like their chosen selection. It was easily and cordially swapped out for a... More

I had lunch here with a large group. I ate the ahi tuna wrap. It was OK but certainly nothing to rave about. Service was good.

Nero's Grille is a special restaurant, that for years, has managed to deliver excellent food and service in a warm, unhurried setting. Under the watchful and caring eyes of Jeanine, the Manager, who always checks in on her customers and delivers a personal touch, with no request being too big or too small. The food is consistently excellent and is... More

I received a $14 hamburger, ordered medium-rare, that was raw. They could have cared less. They were surprised that I wanted it sent back. The manager was rude and unhelpful. I have been coming to Nero's since I was a child( the decor is still the same), but I will not return
