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.

Delicious lunch selections and outstanding value. My favorite restaurant in town! We had the Flatbread eggplant appetizer and French onion soup. Menu offers an extensive array of items.

I was invited to dine when my dear friend started as a server there a few months ago. The name is indeed deceiving as The Courthouse Grille is a more upscale dining establishment. Table cloths, cloth napkins, nice dinnerware and glasses. Though family friendly I say that it's not a place I would take a squirmy toddler or loud baby... More

The food was excellent. The service was even better. The only bad thing is the serving portions are small. I had lunch at Courthouse Grille with a group of people. We all ordered something different, however the one thing that was common was that the serving size was rather small, even my glass of wine seems small.

I avoided this restaurant for years because I enjoy dining not eating. I don't like eating in diners featuring heavy fried food which the name " Grille" implies. This restaurant is the delightedly surprising opposite. The decor is sleekly elegant eclectic with modern to Hollywood icon decor with surprising Victorian splashes.The main dining room features a fireplace . Many rooms... More

Had dinner with my fiance for Valentine's Day and was very happy with the experience. I had the Spring Lamb chops and fiance had the crab stuff colossal shrimp. I am new to lamb so my opinion it was ok. My fiance's dish was excellent, we both tried it and even down to the risotto was excellent. Service was attentive... More

I have had two special events at the Courthouse Grille. Sam was wonderful. He really was great to work with. Our events were very special. The food was great and the wait staff treated our guests very well. The prices were reasonable and the atmosphere is very cozy and charming. Love the Courthouse Grille!
