Always Excellent!

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

It had been years since I dined at Nero's. It was a crowded Saturday night when we arrived. We had reservations and be sure to have them. The food was delicious. I had the scallop special with butternut squash and it was tasty. The French onion soup was excellent and others at the table seemed pleased with their selections as... More

Although the restaurant's accoustics amplify the noise coming from the very active bar scene, diners can enjoy delicious, well-prepared salads, seafood (especially their raw bar options), steaks and burgers. The best dining area is in the main room with all the windows; avoid the room 3-steps up from the bar.
