A very charming restaurant set just off the river. The food (I had the scallops in light cream sauce and french onion soup) was phenominal ! They also had a great variety of martinis. I don't typically like martinis, but it seemed to be a specialty, so I tried one - outstanding !! It was about a 30 minute drive,... More

Love the atmosphere at The Onion, with local history in the décor. Great food with a lot of verity to pick from, wraps to scallops, to beef stroganoff which is exceptional. Goof for date night and family dinning. Great place to have an event upstairs with a wonderful view of the river.

Had a pleasant meal here with two main dishes and an appetizer for 40 bucks with two waters for two of us. As you can tell the prices were fair. Our baked onion signature dish was ok. Unfortunately the dish tasted a bit oily and wet from cooking an onion which I am guessing was cool before cooking. My flat... More

While house hunting we stopped in to Hasting to a recommended restaurant, the Onion Grille. The signature appetizer was a large cooked onion. I am not partial to onions but this was very tasty. I had a Pork Tendorloin dish with vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes. The food was good. My companions loved theirs. My grandkids loved the small electric... More

We had the special appetizer, brisket stuffed jalapenos. We are fans of spicy food, these were so hot they hurt your face. There should have been sufficient warning that we were ordering something almost inedible. Despite only touching one before having them removed from the table, we were not compensated in any way or even asked "oh no, were these... More

We love this restaurant. Within 50 yards of the Mississippi River, The Onion Grill is locally famous for it's excellent service, casual atmosphere, river-town decor and excellent food. My grandchildren love their burgers and home-made fries. Kiddie menus too. Their salads are always fresh and outstanding. I LOVE their liver and onions with bacon: not everyone's choice, but they do... More

We stopped in for lunch before heading out of town on girls' weekend. We were in the mood for bloody marys and boy did this place deliver!! They were amazing, and came in big hurricane glasses with great garnishes. Our waitress was old and adorable and really good. I had the greek flatbread and the lamb was so tender. I'd... More

I met some high school friends at the Onion Grille recently and was very pleased. The location in Hastings is near the river and after lunch I had a chance to walk a bit by the river. We had lovely service and an enjoyable visit with friends we have not seen in a long time. One of our group had... More

We stopped in on a Sunday at 2:30 in the afternoon. Only one table of two and one table of about 7 were in the restaurant. Could have been bad timing, but it took quite a while to get our food. We could not believe that when the table of 7 received their food, the waitress was bringing it out... More
