Regardless of location, The Republic Grille offers delicious food at reasonable prices and with great service. On June 18, 2021, we went to the Magnolia location, and as usual, had a great experience. Ian, our server was fairly new, did an excellent job, and as...a result, earned a generous tip well above 20% We ordered calamari and queso as appetizers then the Grogan Salad and Shrimp Tacos for main dishes. Everything was delicious! These guys consistently are excellent!More

They were very welcoming and a great selection of gluten free options. The food was really good and our server, Darnell was awesome. Im a picky eater and he convinced me to the stuffed porkchop with a cherry wine sauce. It was freaking amazing. Definitely...will be back. My wife was all smiles when she learned they have a gluten free strawberry shortcake which she loved.More

As always we had a delicious dinner! I had the chicken picatta & hubby had chicken fried steak but everything we have had here is exceptional! Servers are friendly and the manager usually stops by your table to ask how your dinner is.

Food was excellent and Danielle our server was amazing. Danielle’s service was warm and welcoming and she perfectly timed each course with the pace of our date night. She was very respectful and kept us laughing as well. My wife and I never felt rushed...and we were able to relax and really enjoy our date night! Would have given 5 Stars if the restaurant would have had the wines available that were advertised on the internet and also if there would have been live music. Next time we’ll call ahead to see if they have the wine we prefer but the live music is only on weird nights of Wednesday and Sunday.More

Madison did a great job as our server. This is a clean restaurant, and family-friendly, too, with lots of well-lit parking. My TRG salad was delicious.

Thank you for your response to my review. I am so sorry that you feel your staff could not control our experience at your restaurant. We did not choose our seating location. We were placed there and then AFTER that they seated 5 tables with small children around us. That was the reason for the rating of 1 for service. As for the 3 managers on site, we never saw any of them. It was probably too loud for them to bother to come into that room. As for the Waitress, we told her about the problem and all she said was I am sorry about that. As for the normal survey you provide at the restaurant that was conveniently forgotten on this occasion. Maybe you should be less worried about your ratings and more worried about really listening to what people say. I would have gladly changed it but since you published that it was our fault that our experience was poor I will just leave it like it is.
