I have eaten here at least three times, so its not like the food is terrible, but...
The ribs are good, not great, I think it has to do with their dry smoking and their sauce. The pulled pork is dry and a little stringy. They have fish tacos on the menu, one of my favorite things to eat believe it or not, but the fish is fried, not broiled, so not as healthy as I would like. Good for a change from Italian food, which is our most common menu in this area. BBQ is not the first thing you would think of for a place with their name. They do have wings- about 20 different flavors

Love this place! Such a welcoming atmosphere. Food is good. I love the smoked BBQ items. Staff is accommodating and never makes you feel like you are inconveniencing them. Always a good time at California Grill!!

Decent food, average atmosphere, great service from our server Jody. Wings were good, so were the club tacos. Would definitely try some of the smoked BBQ food next visit.

California Grill is our favorite place to eat, it's got a varied menu, something for everyone, and it's got lots of the new "in" dishes. Love the big booths by the window, plenty of room for 5 or 6 people. The service is great too.
