We made a reservation for two through OpenTable for last evening. We arrived on time but we were only offered a table in the very noisy bar area (instead of the restaurant). When I requested a table for two in the restaurant (it was my...birthday and as I had reserved), I was told we would have to wait 45 minutes. The host was arrogant and did not care one bit. I can understand if we were walk ins but not with a reservation. We have supported this restaurant at least one a month over the last two years. This is not the first time we have experienced rudeness from the hosts. We have seen them treat others the same. So disappointing. We had a great evening at the dependable and always pleasant Stuft PizzaMore

Second visit for us together. Food was great again. Very busy Saturday night, but that didn't reduce the quality of the service, which was excellent. We had a reservation and were seated immediately on arrival, at the table we'd requested. Generous portions, reasonable prices for...the area. Loud, busy place. Nice atmosphere. We look forward to sitting outdoors when the weather cools down a bit. We'll definitely return.More

Our family went there for lunch on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, and we were very impressed. We were seated in a backroom, which was not crowded and very comfortable. The food was excellent. Among other things, we had the fish and chips and...a salad with fruit, dates and greens. The portions were very large. The fish was cod and was fried to perfection. The service was quick, polite and professional. And the back room was a pleasant compliment to the front room/bar atmosphere.More

We ordered some take out from here our first night in PS. It was delicious, fresh ingredients and prepared perfectly. I noticed a nice outdoor area for restaurant seating too.

So my friends and I have had a running battle on the best Fish and Chips. One lives in Palm Springs and the other Rancho Mirage so coming out to the boonies is a big thing. So I told them, we go to the Grill...on Main and settle this. Awesome fish, awesome chips, awesome service, thanks Noe’ for the taking care of us. We have a winner!More

I'm a local and love to support our local businesses. My friend and I had dinner at The Grill on Main last night and had one of the best meals since I can remember. I was so hungry I forgot to take a picture of...my meal but let me start with Happy Hour which you can choose from a myriad of bites and cocktails until 6pm for Happy Hour prices. They had specials and the meal I chose was the Ribeye Steak with mashed potatoes and green beans, it was done to perfection and I ended up even taking some home. My friend had the Special Sea Bass and even though it looked like a small portion it was actually very filling. It came with Wasabi Mashed Potatoes and veggies. All very fresh and delicious. It was nice being out after being cooped up and it was so nice to see how many "take out" orders they had. Do yourself a favor stop by for a meal or take out. Oh, and by the way our service was excellent!!! Five Stars to our server and food!More

Enjoyed dinner Saturday night. Seated right away (we had reservations). This location now allows seating inside and outside. We elected to sit on the patio. There was a 3 piece band playing contemporary hits and we enjoyed listening to the band. Drinks were better than...average, Food was a solid "B". If you are looking for a local place for dinner that you can dress down to shorts and flip flops, this is your place.More

After several takeout meals of soggy buns and fries, it’s wonderful to experience fine dining like old times before COVID. Well, sort of. Our table in the quiet, covered outdoor patio felt safe and sufficiently distanced socially. Our early dinner reservation time coincided with Happy...Hour and the craft beer on tap and the unique Dutch non-alcoholic beer quickly put us in a jolly mood. The quality of food and service was excellent. My New York steak was thick and juicy, done perfectly. My dinner companions all liked their prime rib special. The Caesar Salad with anchovy was spot on with the appropriate amount of dressing. Glad we drove here from our hotel in Palm Dessert.More

Always fabulous. Always a great spot and fun times. Been there every single year for my BDay and Brett never disappoints. Everyone we have ever taken there raves about it and tells thier friends, and so on. DO NOT MISS this spot or opportunity.
