“Surprisingly Good Food in an Unlikely Setting”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

The Grille is an-open-to-the-public restaurant at a golf course. On a recent visit, the dining area was packed with a noisy crowd, which likely slowed the service and made conversation a bit difficult. The menu and wine list have enough variety to please everyone and some daily specials add to the selection.

The food, however, was worth the wait as everything served at our table was very good. The crab cakes "without filler," for which the "East Carolina chef" is famous, were outstanding, the filet was tender and perfectly cooked, the salads and sides were very tasty and the desserts were plentiful.

While the Grille is a bit out of the way and not easy to find, make the effort and you will not be disappointed!!

“Go here!”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

No matter what you order, you will not be disappointed. Nice bar area with beautiful outdoor seating overlooking the golf course. Flat screen tvs even outside to keep up with your favorite game. Fabulous atmosphere and management is awesome, he came around to each table and had conversations with each table to ensure a wonderful experience. Good news is there is nothing he could improve, the staff was on top of things filling drinks, promptly serving amazing food. We had a burger and a pulled pork sandwich that was great. I saw a lot of entrees coming out to tables and they all looked fabulous. We did return to see a band in the evening a second time, sat at the bar and had an absolute blast. Great little spot!
