Met my daughter for lunch mid afternoon on a Tuesday at the Union Grille. We were lured in by a Groupon coupon, which I'd certainly obtain again. We both had the crab cake sandwich; which were excellent (lots of crab & very little filler). Our waitress was great - attentive & responsive to our requests. The atmosphere didn't have a wow factor but our food certainly did so we're likely to return!

We have been here 3 times in the past year and have really had a hard time finding something decent to order. We now just tell friends that we do not want to eat here. Even when you ask the waitstaff about ingredients in food because you cannot tolerate spicy food, you are served a dish with hot flakes sprinkled all over the spinach and down to the mashed potatoes and on the entree. The skirt steak was like shoe leather The restaurant is cold and the waitstaff disappears leaving you shivering and ready to walk out. Thank goodness they have fabulous warm bread and are happy to bring you more if you request it. It saved us from leaving there hungry more than once. They have lots of specials and run groupons often. Although it is reasonably priced, it is not worth it. There is tremendous room for improvement in this prime location.

By far one of the best short rib dished I've had. Had it served over creamy mashed potatoes with a side of green beans. Heaven. The ribs fell apart and the sauce was just delicious over the potatoes. Definitely recommend!

Went here on New Years Eve, arrived at scheduled reservation time and our group of 4 was seated immediately. Server was attentive and the food was great! Two of us had filet, and it was cooked exactly to order. Restaurant was crowded, but dinner still arrived without too long of a wait.

We're from out of state, but bought a groupon prior to traveling to Wilmington. The restaurant is in a local, downtown type of environment. Well-lit free parking next to restaurant. We shared a bowl of tasty crab bisque which was chunky with fresh crab in every bite. I ordered the flatiron steak and the Mrs ordered the 5oz tenderloin , which she called the best steak she's ever had! Both steaks were tender, juicy, cooked to order, and deliciously seasoned! Extensive bottled beer selection both foreign and domestic.
