“good food, great value”
Reviewed March 8, 2010

the grill does a Thursday supper club dinner, two main meals and bottle of wine for £22, great value, the food and wine were first class but what took it above the norm was the service, lovely atmosphere in the restaurant, can not recommend it high enough

“A real let down!!!”
Reviewed January 25, 2010

After reading many of the reviews of this restaurant we decided to try it on a recent weekend trip to Inverness. My boyfriend and I are both steak lovers and being a "steakhouse" I thought this would be the place to go for a fab meal. I was very wrong! We both had sirloin and they were terrible cuts of meat, mine being the worst. I left more than half as it was unedible. We did mention this to the waitress when she cleared our table and she said she would speak to the chef.........we heard no more about it and had nothing taken off our bill!! It was a very disappointing meal and probably one of the worst steaks I have ever had. I would certainly NOT recommend this place to anyone. Save your pennies.......you get better food in Macdonalds!!!!

I would like to respond by saying I am very sorry again but as i have mentioned in emails before to you that I was not made aware of the situation and if I was I would have fixed it.

In regards to our meat we use the best avalible organic beef, we pride ourselves in using only the best.

Also the customer was e-mailed with an apoligy and with the invetation to try us again on the house and said "i dont think so" so even trying to repair the problem would have not helped

We visited Inverness in May on holiday and enjoyed a lunch at Corner Grill and liked it so much that this time while visiting Inverness in Nov. we went again. Again it was a lovely lunch. Nice food for the price.

“Great lunchtime offers”
Reviewed November 23, 2009

Went to the Corner Grill for the "2 courses of £6.95" lunchtime menu. Handy city centre location. Food quality was excellent, large portions for lunch at a very reasonable price. There were quite a few tables taken.
