After obtaining a short list of area restaurants from a hotel clerk, the Grille was our second choice when we found the first one closed. Seems like many things in this area need updating. Though there were several cars in the Grille lot, two of us were seated in an empty room... I guess there is another attraction besides the... More

Bruce and I will not return to Anna's for any meals due to the way I was verbally attacked by a husband and wife because I held my ears due to the noise while eating alone one night. My husband was away at his 101 year old mom's funeral. We are both 71 and I have never been treated so... More

Wife and I really enjoyed this place. Yes, one of the waitresses was in the learning stages, but that doesn't take away from the quality of food. It is rare that you get truly fresh flounder at most restaurants, but not here. Not only was the fish fried to perfection, but you could almost taste the ocean from where it... More

No hostess to seat guests. Waited 30 minutes for homemade chips which were overcooked. Waited another 15 minutes for entrees and the waitress did not deliver the food, a young female who had no idea what we ordered delivered the food and had to ask who had what. Upon first look at the French fries, they looked overcooked, soggy, and... More

The new bar has made it easier for adults to have drinks and food without interrupting family dining. I sat with my husband and polished off two orders of steamed shrimp and cold drinks-- they were excellent. Hopefully after the remodel is complete it will be more comfortable in the bar-- the tables and chairs are well worn. The only... More

Party of four arrived for lunch at about 1230 today, after church. There were only 4 or 5 other parties of 3-6 people seated, so things looked promising when we were seated right away. Unfortunately, service was unbelievably slow and it quickly seemed as though the restaurant was understaffed, although the server was friendly and polite when she made it... More

A group of us went last Friday night and ate at The Grille, and the food was very good. I had the Flounder/ cole slaw and baked potato, the others had Prime Rib and sides and also commented that theirs was very tasty. Give The Grille a try if you have been there or if you have not, you will... More

We found this restaurant recommended when driving through Smithfield to do some shopping and figured we'd give it a go. The room we sat in was kind of fun, apparently a renovated pool room, with nice old wooden floors and that "Grandma's house" smell. The tables were nothing special and the chairs looked horribly uncomfortable but ended up being okay...... More

My husband and I used to love the Grille. It does have good food, but service was bad the last two times we went to eat at this restaurant. The last time, it took 40 minutes before my simple grilled cheese sandwich and soup came to my table. My friend and I both ordered this. Our sandwich was nearly cold... More
