“Dared to Dine...And Loved It!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2011

My husband and I visited the Grill on King on May 28th for a rare night out and we had a fantastic meal. The grilled calamari and crabcakes were the best I've ever had and the main courses (mushroom risotto and a grilled lamb sirloin with merlot reduction) were delicious. The food presentation was a delight. The only mar on an otherwise perfect meal was having to sit next to a woman who complained from the moment she sat down. It was no surprise to me to see her review (Dine If You Dare) on this site. For someone who was apparently celebrating her 20th anniversary with her husband, it was pretty appalling. She complained about the way her steak was cooked and even after the chef cooked her a new one, that wasn't good enough. The entire restaurant had had enough of her and applauded after she left. I felt sorry for her husband. The food is first rate. The chef clearly takes pride in his work and rectified her concerns. There's no pleasing some people, unfortunately. We appreciated our dining experience immensely and we will be back again. Thanks for a memorable evening.

“Efficient, polite service, excellent seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2011

Despite requesting a table at 9pm on a Friday, we were seated at the table of our choice, with courtesy and welcoming enthusiasm. Our calamari appetiser was lightly broiled and was delicious. We had the seafood daily special (cod) and a New York steak. Service throughout our meal was very good.

“Great Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2011

We are reviewing this late but better late than never. This place is one of the top restaurants we have tried in our area. I had the chicken and my wife had the fish. Both were very mouthwatering and delicious. It was a hot summer night and we sat outside and enjoyed the cozy atmosphere. The service was excellent. Compared to other places the portions were generous but the flavor was not compromised. Delicious food at a reasonable price. With a appetizer, two entrees and a bottle of wine, it all came out under $100 dollars. We will be back again this summer!

“Exactly what my taste buds were looking for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2011

Our B&B, The Cape House, recommended Grill on King to us and boy are we glad! It was wonderful! The Bruschetta as an app followed by the Carbonara for me and Lasagna for my hubby. We left stuffed to the brim and so satisfied!

“Service was Horrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2011

This was one of the worst dining experiences that we have had in a long time. We arrived at the restaurant approximately 1 3/4 hours before we were to attend a play at the Shaw. We told the server of our timing requirements. After well over 1/2 hour after we ordered our appetizer had not been served. When we complained the server engaged us in a depate regarding the travel time to the theatre. We were not the only tables with an issue. The table next to us had to take hteir dessert in a "take away" box and another coupl gave up after waiting an hour for their meal.
