Had a nice stay at the Gris Saturday evening. The room had a period setting and was overlooking main street. Not drafty at all. We got the table as requested by the fireplace, dinner was good (not wow) but the server and the Christmas caroling were amazing. Note: We were at Table #61 and when I sat down I caught my suit pants on a nail or staple under the table causing a rip. Mentioned it to the server and then watched them sit someone at the table without even looking at it or fixing it after we were done. Stayed in the TapRoom with the band for the evening. Great time and great band. Would recommend and will return.
