Group of 8 celebrating a birthday. Called 7 days before for a 7pm Friday night reservation.... see you then! Most of the group hadn't been to the Polaris Grill before. All said they will be back. Big hits were the Prime Rib (the featured entree) Veal Basil, and the Linguine New Orleans. Raves for the Butternut Squash soup and the... More

I last reviewed the Polaris Grill in August 2014 and most of my original review is still true today. This is a nice place for a nice quiet meal. It's not as noisy or as bustling as many of the Polaris Parkway area restaurants and is a a little more of a "finer dining" place than many of the chains... More

I wanted something light so I went for the Mixed Berry Salad and had blacken shrimp added. I chose wisely – delicious. I also ordered Penny’s Bourbon Cider which added an apple flavor to the berry tastes. Laura, my waitress, was friendly, attentive, and made an excellent meal suggestion. Quiet, soothing atmosphere. Walked from the Hampton Inn. A nice evening.

I had dinner with four business associates. We were seated promptly ; drink order placed and served timely. No rush for taking dinner orders-- we ordered a diverse group of dinners and all were good. Save room for homemade desserts. I would come again.

Had dinner here not long after arriving in our hotel after a day's drive from Williamsburg. It was in easy walking distance of our hotel. We were very pleased with our experience here. We were greeted pleasantly, asked if we preferred a booth or table & chairs. We opted for a booth. We were quickly seated and our waitress appeared... More

I've been here a few times and don't recall ever being disappointed by the food. But we hadn't been here in a while and were reminded by a discount we got in the mail from them. Anyway, we went here yesterday and once again no complaints. Upon arrival, they asked us if we'd like to be seated on the patio,... More

It had been years since I visited the Polaris Grill. Lots of years! From years ago, the PG has reinvented into an elegant dining venue. I was tempted to ask for a table on the patio - it was so inviting - yet the dining room is very lovely. I was pleased to see a menu that was not the... More

We went to Polaris Grill with a large group for brunch celebrating a birthday. Reservations were easily made and they were ready for us upon arrival. I enjoyed a Grand Mimosa cocktail which was delicious. The brunch menu was extensive and I enjoyed the steak and eggs. The steak was quite small for $17.95 and I was a bit disappointed... More

Sunday arrived and brunch was suggested. I recalled "days of ole'" from a pretty magnificent brunch spread at the Polaris Grill when we used to live in Westerville. I quickly checked tripadvisor and the most recent reviews were average to poor. I wanted to give them a second chance. We arrived 1230, the place was NOT full. Greeted warmly and... More
