Nice place with good service and food

Went with friends last night. I was desperately disappointed. Firstly the service was ok, but the waitress was very short with us, it was our first time here and when we asked questions, she was fed up having to explain! We decided on a taster combo with mash and coleslaw to try and my friend had the taster prawns. The... More

We were a group of 6 guys, and we fit nicely with elbow room in one of their huge booths. Staff was friendly and attentive. Lots of choices on the menu (lots of grilled meat options), and all was reasonably priced. The parking garage for The Grove is right nearby, very convenient. Don't expect high class romance or tranquility here... More

Loved this place, their BBQ is super yummy. Their salads are really good too. And their guacamole is to die for. They're really nice with children, offering them colours and papers. And they have a kids menu. Perfect place for a lunch break with the family.

I ordered the beef ribs and was in food heaven. The salad selection was great and the sides were very good. If you visit The Grove, this is an excellent choice to enjoy a meal without large crowds around you.

We arrived as a party of 6 and were seated almost right away. Good start. The soup was a tri-tip stew. Very tasty. We ordered ribs, trout, chicken breast, tri-tip, and a combo plate. Food arrived in a timely manner and was very tasty. They even give you a choice of some extra bbq sauces, chipotle and habernero. I had... More

Ok, so it's basically in the mall, but what a great find! I have dietary restrictions and whoda thunk a bbq joint is where I'd find compliant food? The best rotisserie chicken I've ever had. Truly! And a side of chicken broth (because I asked for it dry), it was so great. The Grove is pure fun and I will... More
