“Superior Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

The beef medalions were superb, the atmosphere was delightful and please try the MANGO MOJITO...the menu is simple an caters to any taste bud. The Irish coffee...is wonderful and the creme is floated perfectly!! Do try the salmon special for fall/winter. This seasonal treat is wild salmon...and yes there is a difference in taste and texture between wild and farm raised. FABULOUS!!

“disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

Not the same dining experience as it used to be. Very sad for a presumed upscale venue. Hostess still very welcoming but wait staff is not good. Amenities like bread with tempanade no longer provided...though pricing is still the same or more. Orders get confused or misrepresented for preparation. Quality of content and preparation went way down about the time M&S was acquired by Landry's.

“Happy Hour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

I almost never go to M&S Grill for dinner or a "big night out," but it is really great for a Happy Hour. From 5-7pm, they offer a happy hour drink list and menu for not only small plates, but pretty decent sized ones, too. You can get a burger and fries for almost nothin'.

“Inconsistent at best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Used to be that we could be sure to enjoy a good steak, wonderful sides, hearty drinks and service that matched the white linens on their tables. Nowadays, you'll be lucky to get one of those. Tonight, we had bad nachos - cold, not as described, and definitely not what I'd call nachos (poorly fried tortillas to replace the chips, tons of red pepper [why?] and very little cheese that wasn't melted). The "kobe style" burgers were way too thin for a $15 burger and the medium burger was definitely well done. The brioche buns were dripping in butter - don't even try eating these with your hands. And the "onion rings" as the menu stated were actually fried onion "straws" that were terribly soggy and cold. The Cobb salad, while tasty, definitely wasn't "traditional" as billed on the menu. It was more of a tossed salad than the traditional Cobb that is served with each topping piled together. Would just like to see the menu accurately describe the food and have the food be delivered hot and prepared as ordered.

Unfortunately, this is not our first experience like this at M&S Grill, but it will be a long time before they get another chance to disappoint us again.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

My husband and I had dinner here Friday night and were very disappointed. The beautiful outdoor setting was the reason we choose this restaurant and the fact that we had eaten here years ago and had been happy. But the food was not good and was very expensive. We ordered fish and chips and the Kobe burger and the bill was $88.00. The fish was all breading, fries not good, the burger become food for my dog. Although the setting and service was good, I cannot recommend this restaurant. We wish we could have our Friday night back! Sorry.
