The food is simple , but very good. Big selection of gluten free foods. Always had a great meal there. When real busy, tends to be noisy.

Little waiting time for a Saturday night, excellent server and well prepared food. A very broad menu, something for everybody. We just loved the Fallen Angel Margaritas!

This is an outstanding place to go for a fun pub vibe with good beer and wait staff. The issue is the food is lacking and has steadily deteriorated over the last 18 months. The first time I went I had the beef stew and fish and chips. They were not good - they were great. Over the next 4... More

We visit the Exeter area a lot and recently tried the Holy Grail. What a hoot! Its set in an old church but don't let that fool you. The place is alive with lots of customers having fun. Its a little noisy but that is part of the fun. We had our usual vodka martini's at $7.25 each. Very good... More

So this is an ex-church repurposed into a bar & restaurant, a fine idea indeed. They boast an excellent draft beer selection and the bar is stocked with a large assortment of excellent brands. No need to pray that your food will be good. Everything we had was quite fine. Try the steaks. And be sure to wander around the... More

Arrived just about 7PM on a Saturday evening to meet family. We were seated near the bar and kitchen area. Enjoyed drinks while waiting for our family members to arrive. Their menu is extensive and beer selections are one of the best I have seen recently. The family arrived and we got chatting when our server came back over to... More

The Holy Grail is set in an old church and has a wonderful atmosphere. The restaurant inside is set around a middle bar area and the food is tasty and portions large. Pricing is moderate and fair. Service was excellent.

This place has great energy and good service. The menu is extensive with cleverly named dishes derived from medieval times and inspired by biblical references. The food is tasty and the beer selection is awesome. With so much to choose from on the menu, we were happy with everything we ordered from appetizer to dessert, too. The best part of... More

They took an old church and converted it into a great Irish pub. We were there for lunch, and it was so good that we went back that evening for drinks. The Guinness stew was phenomenal!! And the portion size of the turkey club was huge. If you want good food in an amazing atmosphere, this is the place. I... More
