Always good locally owned place that is worth discovering! Kind of a step back in time but worth digging for. Dark, low light atmosphere with a little nostalgia for the hole in the wall. Prices are reasonable and food is worth banking on! Never find it unless a local tells you about it.

Went to dinner Wednesday 28 Jan just as we have several times at Downtown. The service was extremely slow and there appeared (although the never stated) to be a problem in the kitchen. The reason I say this is because there was a noticeable scilence from air and no one in the crowded room was receiving their food. The waitress... More

The menu at Downtown Grill always blows us away - so many savory, wonderful choices. The waiter did his best to describe the choices, I could hardly get past the appetizers, so that's what I did, ordered two appetizers and a salad. Perfect pre-theater dinner. Service is excellent. Food is always delivered hot and lovely to look at. Drinks are... More

We visited the Downtown Grill in Macon last night on New Year's Eve. Had heard about this restaurant for years and wanted to visit. It is rather hard to find for someone not familiar with Macon. It is literally in an alley. Valet parking is a must. We were on time for our reservation and were seated in a booth... More

Had a very good meal with friends and family. Six of us with 5 different meals, and everyone was very happy with their meal. When the waiter brought the bill he had written the amount in the middle of the bill so it was easy to see in the dim light. I calculated the tip and paid. I took the... More

I had higher hopes based on the reviews but you can't always rely on other reviews. Our experience was okay but could've been better. We were seated at the darkest table in the restaurant. I had to use my phone flashlight to read the menu. The waitress was okay but couldn't answer a simple wine question. The ribeye I got... More

We went to Downtown Grill for my wife's Birthday and had an excellent meal. The wait staff did a great job making her birthday a memorable experience. The owner fulfilled a special request which made her night and meal perfect. We both enjoyed the steak which was cooked to perfection. The Downtown Grill has always been our "go to" for... More

We were going to a concert at the Municipal Auditorium and found that this great establishment was within walking distance. We didn't have reservations and were happy to be able to get in! I didn't love walking through the cigar smoke in the bar, but loved the back room where we were seated. We had a cozy corner both with... More

Let me start by saying this has been our Favorite restaurant for 3 years. We celebrate every anniversary and special occasion here. Food has always been top notch. Tonight we went for our anniversary again. Started with the "FRESH" tuna ahi that had obviously been frozen. The taste was very sub standard. My wife had the lamb chops with spinach.... More

First of all, thanks for being a loyal customer for the last three years. I'm sorry that you had a less than stellar dining experience with us on this visit. As you well know this is not our norm.
