We had a horrible experience here and will never go again. We went on a Saturday around 3 pm in the afternoon for a late lunch. We were told it would be 20 minutes to get a seat indoor or we could sit right away outside. Well right away for them would be 5 minutes because they had to clean off tables. It took them 5 minutes to find a rag to wipe the tables. We were a party of 3. A party of 2 came in behind us and were seated right away inside. It was another 5-10 minutes before the waitress came to take our order. 2 burgers and chicken tenders. Plus 2 orders of fried pickles. The pickles came out fairly quickly. It took them 45 minutes to bring out our burgers, and said our chicken tenders would be out soon. Another 15 minutes later and our waitress (the entire time) was conveniently not around so I went to talk to the hostess station because we had tickets for a show and we had to leave. They were no help and didn’t seem to care. Oh and of course we watched the people who were seated after us leave before us. We finally got our chicken tenders and the waitress said they didn’t start cooking them until after she delivered our burgers. Horrible service and the food was not all that great. It was mediocre at best. We would never go there again and will tell everyone we know not to go there.

Very good choice of burgers and very nicely cooked, and this is THE place to go if you are looking for a top-quality wine along with it!

Food was very good and had a lot to choose from. Other parties had dessert milkshakes and they said they were incredible. Has indoor and covered outdoor seating and lots of TV's. Service was good. Only negative us that floors are very slippery. Two in our party of 8 almost fell.

My wife and I decided to go to Grill Marks for Valentine's Day but decided to go on the day after to avoid the crush. There was almost no one there, the service was great and we had a very pleasant visit. The place is well decorated, with bare brick walls and a fireplace open from both sides. We ordered the Valentine's Day special which was two burgers, the "3 way" appetizer and a milkshake, which we shared with two straws -- like the teenagers of days gone by. The burgers were delicious, as were the appetizers. I do not hear as well as I once did so having only a few people there allowed us to talk in a normal voice. Because of the brick walls, I suspect it would be fairly noisy in here with a crowd. Other than that observation, I think you would enjoy Grill Marks and I recommend it.

Went here with friends after an Escape room adventure. Food and atmosphere was enjoyable. Not cheap, but not expensive either.
