We didn't have reservations but we were lucky enough to be seated quickly. Every staff member was polite, pleasant, and smiling! The food was perfectly prepared. They have an extensive wine list for every taste and budget. We definitely will be returning to the Polaris Grill.

The food was pretty good, but we were one of the only ones in the restaurant at the time and service was slow. Expected quicker service for how empty the restaurant was

Whenever I get a chance I look forward to the Polaris Grills Halibut. It has a crispy outside with a hint of orange. This has to be the best piece of fish I have ever found. I only wish I knew how to make it myself. This last visit for us was in July and we choose to sit outside... More

We have eaten at Polaris Grill several times and fondly remember the 55 restaurants. The patio was great for dinner as it is shady and well covered. The 55 salad was very good as usual and one of the reasons we continue to frequent the restaurant. The fish tacos were very good the tuna was cooked to order and tasty.... More

Sunday evening had dinner for two at Polaris Grill. Arrived at 7 PM and dined outside. It was warm and humid but the breeze made it bearable. We both ordered the “55” salad with the house dressing which was delicious. For the entree we both had the hickory smoked pork chops. Received two large chops each, neither of us could... More

I had high hopes for the Polaris Grill, but they were soon dashed after I was seated. Except for the wait staff, everything made me frown which is really hard to do, but even they made me wait forever for a glass of water. The asparagus was wilted, cold, and limp and it was suppose to be hot and crisp.... More

Upon first arriving you will face your first choice: the bar, the dining room with a formal yet relaxed atmosphere, the shaded patio. I chose the patio which had plenty of seating (there were tables for larger groups of 7+ and the usual 4 person and 2 person tables). The second choice you will face is when you look at... More

I first went for lunch with colleagues when I worked in the area. Now I work on the other side of town and I am taking a friend for her birthday because she says she never heard of it. Wonderful atmosphere, clean with great service and great food. Totally agree with the other reviewer about sitting outside if it is... More
