This restaurant is the best Brookings has to offer. The main access is from an alley just off 101 on the west side. Reservations are recommended at this very popular restaurant which only offers about fifteen tables. Appropriate dinner music will be enjoyed by the keyboard player. This is in the basement of an Art Gallery, so beautiful pieces of... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this quaint little restaurant accessed from the rear alley. The food was not only delicious but also very nicely presented. All dinners were served with a nice soup, followed by a salad, and then the main dish. We also had the mushroom appetizer, which had a delicious sauce, and the chocolate cake and brownie. One...

We took a group of 12 for a special treat. We made a reservation and were set up in the gallery. Everyone enjoyed the meal. It was served in a timely yet not rushed manner. Everything was top notch and served piping hot.

Four of us had dinner at the Art Alley Grill and all I can say is that it is amazing. The service was wonderful and the food was even better!! We live two hours away and will be returning as often as we can. the drive is worth it!

The restaurant was recommended, so we decided to try it. It was a week night, so went without a reservation. That was a mistake. Not that they were busy, but the server was less than gracious in showing us to one of the many empty tables. We disrupted their schedule, I guess. We ordered our meals - a risotto for... More

Met folks who live here..we were told it was the only good place in town....huge private party upstairs..so had to sit in this rather dark and dank basement....didn't see an art gallery....waitress seemed stressed and told us that...food extremely mediocre...over priced schlock. No thanks.

Only stayed overnight, & we found this by reviews on Trip Advisor. Reservations a must as it is a small eclectic restaurant in basement of Art Gallery, but food is superb! Almost reminiscent of bistros in Paris, basic table & chairs, artist's work displayed on wall, slow service, crowded little room, but oh, food is amazing! Only wish we saved... More

My wife checked Trip Advisor for restaurants in Brookings, Oregon and found Art Alley Grille...an excellent find! It is cozy and comfortable. The service is A-one, not slow but not pushy so we could enjoy a leisurely lunch and converse. We all enjoyed different sandwiches, which were loaded with tasty goodies. Also, we shared a nice bottle of wine from... More

Funky entrance, good offerings. We have gone for lunch several times. I think the dinner menu might change. For lunch, I had the homemade chantrel (sp) soup both times, my husband had the chowder once and the mushroom soup...all of them VERY delicious. We both had sandwiches, all freshly made and tasty. We can highly recommend the art alley grille.
