“The quality has definitely gone downhill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

It had been awhile since we had gone to Grassfields and thought we would stop in; the last time we were there the place was packed and the food was very good. This time I can only say the food was edible but not great. I had the baked haddock and the " stuffing" was just a mushy pile of commercial, finely ground breadcrumbs and the fish was overdone and quite possibly frozen. My husband bought the filet mignon which had a lot of gristle. The baked potatoes were very good but the sour cream we asked for was a pathetic little dollop of no more than a teaspoon. Another pet peeve is that this restaurant has joined so many others in offering " vegetable medley" ,which is watery zucchini and yellow squash, as their only vegetable choice. On the upside, the place is clean and comfortable and the service is good. With so many competing restaurants in the area, they had better bump up their food's quality

“Not the same with new menu!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

We always liked this restaurant and were frequent visitors. We recently visited after not being there for a couple ofmonths and were disappointed with the menu change. The surf and turf options have changed and you can no longer get the scallops/sirloin or lobster pie/sirloin. Instead you get what they call a petit filet mignon, for more $$ and it tastes like a sirloin not a filet. No more brocolli/carrots but instead corn salsa..end result.... more $$ for less food.

“Great Margarita's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

Love this place. Good food selection and usually good specials. Staff friendly and attentive and best of all, usually not a long wait. Bonus; Great Margarita's, maybe the best on North Shore.

“Great Margaritas, Good Food, Fast Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

The margarita glasses are so large, they made us laugh when they arrived at the table. The laughter continued as we consumed the enormous drinks. For entrees, we had the Honey Glazed Salmon which was cooked perfectly and the sweet glaze was tasty. The meal comes with rice or potato and a vegetable (which was 2 tablespoons of corn salsa with a few pieces of lettuce). We also had the Natural Chicken Roulade stuffed with vegetables. The chicken was moist and tender and white sauce was heavy on lemon. The dining room was noisy but several tables were enjoying family celebrations. The food came out fast so this is a good place to eat if you have someplace to go after dinner.

“Good place to meet after work”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

I went to this establishment with friends from work after a long day. It is in a convenient location on 114 just a couple of minutes down from the mall and not too far from Centennial Park Peabody. There were 7 of us plus an infant. The service was good and the food plentiful and tasty. Two of us had the Chicken Parmesan which was just excellent. I am a big eater and I was stuffed. Another big plus is the music which is not too loud so you can hear each other speaking without a strain! This is a great place to meet and enjoy friends
