“Northwest Grille Gone South!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Ate there Sunday night with two friends. His breaded Pollock was mainly bread. Her shrimp and steak? Shrimp were OK but the steak was thin like a piece of shoe leather and dried out. My husband's steak (on the "value" menu) was supposed to be medium-rare. Way way overdone...brown inside and dried-out. Waiter said he'd take care of it. He did not. Then 20 minutes later...and still no new steak appeared so he said he'd call over the manager. 20 minutes after that (after the three of us had finished our meals)...no manager. Manager never showed up. A new steak never showed up. My husband ate the home fries. They were good. Waiter said "sorry 'bout that! - we won't charge you for the steak." Can you believe it? They won't charge us for a dinner he couldn't eat anyhow? Shameful. What a disaster. At least we all came back to our home for a oood dessert and coffee. So, we'll cross that place off our list.

“We'll be back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

We eat at this restaurant a few times a year when we're in the area, it has good fresh food and a nice atmosphere. Today we stopped for their weekend brunch and were delighted with the menu, food, service and variety. They have a vast selection of choices ; St. Augustine style shrimp and grits with greens, omelets with crab meat, crepes with steak, red peppers, goat cheese, to all kinds of seafood dishes, burgers, fish and chips (these are so good), to sweet potato pancakes, sweet potato cheesecake....the list goes on and on. They change the type of pancakes and cheesecakes weekly, but I'm sure they are all very good. Our server Devin was delightful and very helpful. We're looking forward to returning as soon as possible!

“Never had a bad meal.”

Always good - never failed us. Great basil martini! Seafood dishes are always a favorite. Eat there at least once month.

“Local place, great service and taste”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Wednesday night "date night" took us here, and the seafood chowder, grouper sandwich, and organic grass fed organic beef burger bleu made it well worth the visit. Server/hostess Brittany also made sure that our food remained hot, our drinks cold, and that we enjoyed ourselves as our booth provided a nice combination of isolation and people watching. We intend to return.

“Good Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

The fried pollack was great and such a huge serving on the regular meal- I can't imagine what the all-you-can-eat is like!
Fried stuffed shrimp - very tasty. My husband had the stuffed grouper but he would not have the cream sauce and said it was kind of dry. He loved the crab meat stuffing though!
