Everything we ordered for lunch was excellent. My Italy Pasta dish was very well flavoured and with it I enjoyed a grilled Caesar salad, a nice change, topped with slivers of focaccia toast and lots of shaved parmesan. My husband enjoyed a Caesar wrap with chicken, a generous serving, and the best yam fries we've tasted Their coffee was very... More

We stopped in here for lunch and the place was packed. There were only two servers working which caused the service to be very slow. We ordered our meals and after 45 mins the tables that arrived after us started receiving their food. Our server came by and told us that they had a problem with the printer and that... More

Terrific dinner! Caesar salad was really good especially with the shrimp I added very yummy! I had the fish tacos and my hubby had the seafood pasta they were terrific! Loved that they had 2 menus one regular and a full gluten free menu with lots of choices will definitely return

Union St. Grill is one of those standby restaurants that do everything well every time. From burgers to pastas from casual to somewhat finer dining this place has it all. And the friendly service well this place has it too. CHEERS !

Our family visits this place a lot. So often in fact, that the menu is getting old. But, that is not a complaint! We love that there is something for everyone. I look for Vegan and GF options and my husband enjoys a good burger. The kids menu however could use a revamp. It's pretty boring and has no vegan... More

The food was really good and the service was great. The restaurant has a nice cozy ambiance. It's located on the Main street, so there's lots of window shopping to do afterwards. The town is very cute.

Food was really good for us; chicken wrap and shrimp melt. Tasty. Looked like a lot of locals go there, nice to walk around 5th street after lunch.

The food was tasteless, to start with we had a bean and garlic dip, I am still trying to find the garlic, awful. I had a burger, half the ingredients listed on the menu wasn't in the burger, it was tasteless and dry.... More
