“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2009

Had a wonderful dinner. Service excellent. More extensive menu than V Restaurant and easier to reach for reservations by far. Salad, entrees and desserts were top knotch. Warning, if there are just 2 of you, and its a special occasion request an end table or outside, as you could be seated along a long banquet side by side if you are a twosome, and can hear just about everything next to you. This wasn't bad though when we got to hear and see a wedding proposal next to us!!

“Fantastic Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2009

My wife and I ate at Grounds on the recommendation of someone who was tasting wine next to us at one of the local wineries. It was indeed a fantastic meal. I ordered the Angus ribeye with mushrooms. It was accompanied by out-of-this-world fresh cut sweet potato fries and greens. My wife had pork chops, which were on special, and she raved about them as well. Portions were big and prices were reasonable, especially considering the portions. The service was friendly and efficient.

“No better food or wine anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2009

And the prices are reasonable too. This place is special and they do it right.. We were here in early June, 2009. Great ambience, good menu selections. I was even able to order a glass of sherry.

“You Won't Find Better in Murphys”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2008

Four of us ate there on a Friday night and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the food. The chef sent our table complimentary appetizers which we devoured. Service is casual but friendly and knowledgeable - our server recommended some excellent local wines to complement our meal. Definitely a place to return to.
