My wife and I went to the Downhill Grill to have a cocktail and bring home some dinner for later. We sat at the bar and Nikki was our server. She was awesome and knew her stuff. We ordered the nachos to go but just wanted them assembled in the box, on foil, to cook later at home. They were PERFECT. She explained to the kitchen staff what we wanted and got her point across. Also, the wings were very, very good. 2 hours later, at home, they still had the sauce on them and not in the bottom of the tray and the veggies and blue cheese had been put in a separate container. Nice touch. Who likes soggy celery and carrots along with hot blue cheese dressing? My wife's margarita was one of the best she's had anywhere. We also noted that there were 6 servers for the 'nice crowd' in the rest of the restaurant. Ample compared to when they first opened. They seemed to be able to keep up with the customers demands and all seemed to be enjoying themselves. The 'Grill seems to have settled in to it's new location and is a very good place to enjoy a great meal and great service.

Another place that I tend to frequent. There's a lot of different items on the menu from Mexican to pub varieties. The entrees are also good and I especially recommend blackened prime rib if they have it on special. It's a nice atmosphere with a bar area or tables, never too loud and fun in the evenings with live music from time to time.

It's a nice place to relax and linger over good food. But it's not a place to go for a quick meal or if you need to get back to your activity any time soon. The wait staff is attentive and right there with drinks and refills and to ask when the food will ever come out of the kitchen. Did they have to go catch a cow to make that burger? This is fine when have the time and are with company you enjoy spending time with. But lunch during a standard lunch break isn't going to work. The owners employ some popular bar tenders who attract a following of "good old boy" regulars who are low key and like to laugh. So as it gets later in the day, it gets less appropriate for young children to dine.
