“Underwhelming and bland”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Just had a rather boring and bland Sunday lunch. Not impressed by the food, decor or service - the lobster queasilladas had only a hint rather than 'chunks' of lobster and the entree was unpleasant due to the over use of saturated fats.

No offer of green salad in place of sub-standard sides

In short, avoid.

“Brunch didn't live up to the hype. The 29 cent Mimosas were enjoyable but those alone couldn't save cold food and show”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

The food at Grille 29 is impeccable. Tonight I had the grouper Oscar style. Amazing. My only negativity, again, is the service. The younG waiting on us, Brandy, was polite but seemed too rushed to focus on our questions and unable to answer the few we did have.

“A great night out in Huntsville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Grille 29 is upscale but comfortable restraunt. People were in everything from suits and dresses to jeans and a sweater. The sevrvice was out of this world and worth returning for. The food was almost too much to eat. I had the cowboy steak which was great. The steak by itself was a meal and it comes with 3 sides. I could not finish. My wife had the fish and said it was one of the best she had ever eaten. I only wish I had room to try their deserts....

“Yummy Place for Lunch or Dinner!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Yesterday we had yet another FANTASTIC lunch at Grille 29 in Huntsville, AL!! We had the BEST of service from Kati W with a beautiful smile. My hubby's Tilapia was delicious, & as always the Lobster Bisque was the absolute best!! I very much enjoyed the Grille 29 Cheese Plate, even to having a little left over for dinner! We topped our lunch off with the amazing Warm Chocolate Sour Cream Cake with chocolate sauce & Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. This is a special place whatever the occasion or just a fun lunch!!

“Creme brûlée out of this world-finish to a great dinner meeting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

The food - variety of appetizers, including quesadillas, lobster bisque, house salad, lobster tail and filet mignon served with mashed potatoes and English green beans, and topped it off with a special creme brûlée.
The chef here knows how to prepare dinner for the spoiled palate! This was a delicious and certainly one of the higher quality menus served in Huntsville. There was way too much to eat, but the five courses gave a great insight into how outstanding dishes are at Grille 29!
I may not visit this restaurant routinely, but for group meetings or special occasions, I would highly recommend it.
