One of the best burgers in the area. Seafood tower for two is really good as well. Park in the structure next door by the library.

Ok, so I think that anything you order here will be great. I once had a Mushroom Risotto here and I thought for sure I was in heaven. Last visit I ordered a hamburger. I think that these are probably the best, most tasty hamburgers around. Love the fries too. I find that the staff is very attentive and informative.... More

My boyfriend and I took my parents to Witherspoon Grill over the weekend for a birthday lunch. The restaurant is just beautiful inside (there is also a lot of outdoor seating weather permitting and they did have heat lamps on outside). We ordered the crab dip for an appetizer, it was delicious--full of crab and very flavorful! There was also... More

We had already eaten and wanted to have coffee and dessert. This is a large and accommodating restaurant and they were happy to have us for just that. The waitress was fabulous, gave us her opinions and the food was beautifully served and prepared. We wanted to come back but we had commitments elsewhere. Really pretty atmosphere too!

In spite of coolish weather, went on Tuesday evening for a family outing. Witherspoon Grill was recommended by many and it turned out that the comments and reviews were correct. We thoroughly enjoyed with live Rhythm & Blues music. The zseafood was really very well done and the person who sang "Summertime" deserves utmost praise. I would recommend this to... More

We had dinner here while visiting family - there were 7 of us. We arrived without a reservation, but were seated outside. Since the weather was perfect for outdoor seating, we were happy with this. If you want indoors, I'd suggest a reservation. The food was excellent, as was the service. It is located on a little square so the... More

This is probably the noisiest restaurant I have been to in years. But, the food was really good. My stake was better that one I had recently at a Morton’s Steakhouse. My wife's pasta was as good as anything she had in Italy. The service was excellent. My real complaint was the special drink I ordered. The "Kentucky Old Fashioned"... More

We have been there several times and have found the service to be excellent as they allow you to pace your ordering and are not pushing you out. Our meals have always been great and we will continue to come back each time we visit the area.
