We have always enjoyed Downtown Grill until last night. The service was terrible . Our waiter was rude and not well trained. Our drinks took 25 minutes to arrive and we had to ask for bread. When finally arriving with drinks he says, " here you go" and has me take the martini from him instead of placing it on... More

One of the best meals we have ever had. Wait staff was attentive and knowledgable. The run down of the numerous specials can get a little confusing and may need to be repeated. The interior is dark and cozy with no windows in a very old downtown building. We love the dimly light atmosphere. The ahi tuna with wasabi sauce... More

Loved the food and atmosphere. Absolutely delicious! My only complaint is that they have like 15 specials which the server has to repeat to you, you cannot remember them all so they have to go through them all again several times.

We have dined at Downtown Grill in the past. We were downtown for a concert, and went to dinner ahead of time. We ordered two glasses of red wine; each were different brands. We tasted the wine, and neither was good. We asked the waiter to take the two glasses of wine back, and we ordered a $70 bottle of... More

After spending an entire day eating concession food in the Macon Centreplex during the state wrestling championship tournament, my husband and I were tired and just wanted a decent meal before heading back to our hotel. Google Maps suggested Downtown Grill because it was close to the Centreplex, and we expected a local burger joint. What we found was grilled... More

This is a wonderful restaurant in the center of Macon. It is old and worn and dark but the food and service is outstanding. We had the private room in the back which was brightly lit and roomy. We ordered just about everything on the menu and it was all good. The wine was delicious. Great restaurant and highly recommended.

We came on a Saturday with a large group (12). The first treat you'll get here is a walk through the smoke of the cigar bar to get to the dining room. The night started with confusion as some people received drinks they'd ordered, others didn't. After getting the drink issues resolved we were discussing appetizers. The server didn't want... More

We were only in Macon for the night on our way to Savannah so we wanted to start off our trip with a nice dinner. Got a good recommendation from tripadvisor about this place. I have to admit that at first we had a little difficulty finding this place because it is located in an alley, the "rill" was the... More
