My husband and I had, the flat bread appetizer, the Spring Lamb chops and a bottle of Pino Noir. The food was very good but, it took a long time for our dinner to be done.

A group of us were doing work in Plymouth and looking for affordable lunch. I used my Trip Advisor app to find the Courthouse Grille, and it was a great choice. White-linen tables, excellent service and the food was absolutely delicious. The lunch prices were surprisingly affordable for the setting. Everything from the fresh rolls with dipping oil to the...

This is a very nice restaurant. White table cloths, full bar and excellent service. You don't have to save it for special occasions, but might find yourself doing so. If you've never been there put it on your short list so you can make multiple trips.

When we walked in I was happy to see a clean very nicely set up restaurant. A bit of a mold smell but no big deal. We had nice service with pleasant staff. Wine was delicious, salads and bread good also. Now for the main course, I had the chicken piccata and although assured "everything is made from scratch" and... More

My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised by our delicious dinner at the Courthouse Grille. We hadn't been there for many, many years- actually since it was Ernesto's. We started off with the calamari appetizer. Extremely tender calamari was lightly coated and lightly fried, topped with a sweet pepper and caper sauce. It was an unusual calamari preparation and...

We hadn't been to the Courthouse Grille for a few years, but were pleasantly surprised on our recent visit. Everyone was quite pleased with their meal selection, ranging from Maurice salad to scallops to steak. Service was very good (probably because there were only two other tables occupied on this particular Sunday night!)

Nice facility. Nice and good service staff. We had four for dinner. The side sleds wee typical with standard dressing. One concern I have in Michigan is "almost dishes". For example I had an almost paella- one in name not in product. Also many of the pasta dishes are served similar to casseroles. So we have pasta with meatballs covered... More

We lived in Plymouth for 25 years and always try to visit at least once a year. Our favorite place to dine is The Courthouse Grille. It has great ambiance, service, and food. We were in MI for 7 days and chose to dine there twice. I always get Fettichinne Lamborghini, chicken breast with green, yellow peppers, onions and fired... More

I have been to this restaurant on a couple of occasions, and have never had a bad meal. Their meatloaf was delicious, while my table-mate enjoyed his scallops - they were really big and cooked to perfection. This is a great place to go for any occasion.
