“Overpriced and slow service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

We've been to this restaurant over the years and unfortunately we've experienced a decline in service and food quality. We went on a weekday and the restaurant had about 6 tables and three servers on the patio. We really used to enjoy going to this place. This latest time the service was REALLY slow and the music on the patio was way too loud. Food was OK but honestly it is overpriced...fries were soggy. Despite a small sign being posted on the front door as you walked into the restaurant (about not having debit or credit machine working) the server didn't mention this until the bill arrived although you could use the ATM machine in the restaurant. A table of American tourists had a hell of a time trying to get cash...the ATM machine didn't work for them so they had to call their bank. I think it would be a courtesy and appreciated that the server mention this before you ordered. Suggestions for the owner(s)... Better service, better food and put some planter boxes with flowers on the patio. Also, change the profile pic on the web site. Not an accurate depiction. Sorry to see this restaurant on the decline.

“Over priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

So all in all, not the best experience. Went there to have a few beers, on a rather slow friday night. The service was slow, unless you went up to the patio bar yourself. Ordered the nachos($14) with chicken ($19) and will never be ordering them again. The portion was small, the chips were soggy, and there might have been 5 bite sized pieces of chicken on them. Nice place for a quick drink, but way over priced.

“Disappointing way to start our vacation”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

Went to the Grill to see if we could watch Jays game and have supper. Sat at the bar in front of a big TV with golf on. Waited as 3 staff repeatedly walked by us with no acknowledgement. My husband finally asked if anyone was serving this area. The young man pouring beer behind the bar, directly in front of us said no this was the overflow area the main bar outside was open but there was no TV. Mmmmmm, then why was this TV on? , and a table right by the bar was being served food. Maybe there should have been a "no sitting here sign ". We did not want to sit in the sun, at the main bar, and we wanted wanted to watch the Toronto game. Way to lose a sale. We got up nd left and have scratched any future visits off our summer list.

“A Pleasant Find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

Located almost on top of the Wolfe Island Ferry dock, the Grill is a surprisingly good restaurant. If one were to judge a book by its cover, then one would cross the road in order to by-pass the place. Don't be put off by the outward appearance. Take a chance and come on in. The inside is very clean and modern, with pleasant bathrooms, polite wait staff, a large outside seating area and a view across the water to Kingston. Between the four of us we sampled four menu items, and were not disappointed by either quantity or quality. The menu is not huge, but certainly carries a large enough variety to please just about anyone, at prices competitive with those of Kingston. Parking could be a problem during high season, when visitors from Kingston might be well advised to leave their vehicles in Kingston and walk onto the ferry; it's about a thirty second walk from the dock.
