This small restaurant has consistently provided great service and good food. The menu changes based on the time of the year but you will always find something that you will enjoy. The wine list has a good selection and will meet most budgets. Go early as the restaurant noise level increases as it fills, not too loud but if your... More

The food was surprisingly good. We chose it based on an online review. When we arrived we found that it was in fact in a mall/plaza and really didn't look too fancy. Looked like a nice local place and that's what it was with good food. I thing that I like was that my food wasn't too salty (I find... More

Four couples enjoyed a terrific meal. Interesting menu with choices for all tastes. Every item was tasty. Service was excellent- all entrees delivered at same time. Restaurant was pretty much full on a Wednesday night. All having an enjoyable time.

Local friends selected this restaurant and we were so thrilled! WE began with an order of Fried Green Tomatoes ...Delicious! Having been away from the south for a while I was thrilled to see dishes that included grits....You can take the girl out of the south but not the south out of the girl. I had the Seafood and Grits... More

My wife and I decided to try Glenwood Grill based on Tripadvisor recommendations. We were not disappointed! The staff was as good as the food. I had the Seafood & Grits and my wife had the Lump Crab Cakes. Incredible presentation and flavors. Did not feel hurried, but the food was out in a timely manner. For the quality of... More

Glenwood Grill had been a Raleigh standby for years, a power and ladies' lunch spot and a favorite for dinner that locals love. It had been a while since I'd been there and I was delighted that the food is even better as is the menu when we tried it the other day at lunch. The special of a crab... More

We love Glenwood Grill. Dined there twice last week. Scallops two ways. Great flank steak. Terrific berry cobbler. Wonderful arugula salad. Nothing more can be said. Too full.

Tasty salads, enjoyed the grit cake croutons, melt in your mouth rolls, superbly priced carpetbagger 1/2 plate steak had delicious sauce or veal reduction and Bernaise, would get again but so many appealing...

When in Raleigh recently, I had lunch at Glenwood Grill. It is tucked away in a small strip mall conveniently located not far from down town. The atmosphere is cozy, upscale and classy. The wait staff is very friendly and accommodating. For lunch, my partner had the Lemon Thyme Chicken Salad which was accompanied by fresh fruit. The salad was... More

This place is top notch. Immediately when we arrived we were greeted by a friendly host and the ambience here is classy but not stuffy. I called in advance to make sure that casual dress was okay and the person who answered said yes, without hesitation. Everyone seemed to be having a good time and enjoying themselves. I had a...
