“Gross food, poorly managed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

I live locally, so thought I would try this restaurant with my family on New Year's Day. What a mistake! They do not have enough waitstaff, so everyone was constantly running. I had the special - pork. It was the worst cut of pork I've ever seen served. Nearly 1/2 of it was a slab of grisly fat. The mashed potatoes were homemade but lumpy. We had to ask the server to bring the vegetable because he forgot it in the kitchen. There is no printed kids menu and when asked the owner couldn't even tell us what they offered for children or what came with a kids' order. We ordered them something basic - a chicken finger with french fries. The fries were handcut, but undercooked and soaked in old grease. When the bill came we were charged for adult platters instead of kids' prices. It was fixed, but we had to pay extra for the kids' drinks even though the waitress at the next table told her table that kids' drinks were included. Clearly this place is poorly managed. Our waiter was overwhelmed and asked the owner to help him by getting him a drink for a child at one of his tables and the owner said no! I live 5 miles away and will never return!

“Comfort Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2010

We were staying at the Artist's Inn and Gallery in Terre Hill and didn't feel like driving anywhere for dinner. So we walked to the Terre Hill Grill. They hadn't expected any type of crowd that night and only had one person serving the entire restaurant (about 12 tables had seated diners) AND running the cash register. The server was practically flying around the restaurant. Somehow he was able to get everyone's order and get them served with no perceptible delay. I've never seen anything like it. The food was basic but very tasty and very well prepared. I would eat here again without question.

“Cozy And Personal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2009

Whenever we are in the area, we make it a point to stop. Doesn't make any difference what meal we have eaten here, it has always been good. Food has always been served hot, on time, and with a smile. Love their homemade soups and Friday night fish. And my husband always has to have dessert--homemade, of course.
