“Nice food and different to most nearby offerings.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012 via mobile

This is a nice restaurant in the centre of Blackpool, which is offering tasty food at reasonable prices. It is excellent if you are seeing a show at the Opera House as the entrance is immediately opposite. The wine we tried (a Merlot) was also excellent and the service was both efficient and polite. Overall, if you are looking for somewhere pleasant offering nice food, then you will not go far wrong here.

“A much better experience this time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

The manager,"following our last disappointing visit" asked for us to return and provide them with the opportunity to impress. They most certainly did, the meal was good, and the service from Colin could not be faulted. The meal and drinks were complimentary. It is not often you find a restaurant who care enough about the customer being happy to go to the trouble of asking you back, so congratulations Empress Grill.

“Wonderful retro restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

Found this little gem right opposite doors to Empress Ballroom, where we were heading later for Kaiser Chiefs gig. Explaining that we had limited time to eat, staff swiftly seated us, reserved another table for rest of our party, and were altogether proficient and very helpful. Food very good, the decor is wonderful, and it has to be one of the best places to eat in central Blackpool. Well worth a visit.

“Beautiful Place to Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

There are not many places like this in Blackpool so be sure to pay it a visit. Located in the Winter Gardens the restaurant decor is fantastic. Looks like something a celebrity chef would own. Nice touch with the open kitchen so you know that they have nothing to hide. Service is very good and so is the food. A great favourite of ours to dine in.
