Earlier today I had the best Caesar salad I have ever had anywhere. Simple as that. It followed superb she crab soup and was accompanied by soft tasty rolls. All in all a late lunch in Raleigh NC that caught me by surprise and made me want to go back for more. Service was excellent by the way. Prompt and... More

Had dinner last Friday night and this place was fantastic. Every aspect of our dinner from service to all four courses was top notch. She Crab Soup is a MUST try and the new duck entree is phenomenal. Please do yourself a favor and save room for the cobbler as well.

There is a charm here and and understated elegance to the menu. The offerings touch on Southern classics. There are lots of seafood dishes to try ranging from Shrimp and Grits, Seafood Grits, Organic Salmon, to name a few. I tried the A La Carte Salmon with beet salad and goat cheese and parsnip mashed potatoes as a side dish.... More

The Glennwood Grill is hard to find via GPS because it is located in a small strip mall off a service road that parallels Glenwood Avenue, but it is well worth the trouble. We knew we had come to a special place when we entered. It definitely exudes class combined with a certain neighborhood vibe which is reminiscent of a... More

Met here at the advice of a colleague for dinner mid week. The service was impeccable and the food delicious - including the fried green tomatoes starter, the blackened sea bass for entrée and creme brûlée for desert. Highly recommended.

It was aThursday night around 7:30 and the restaurant was comfortably full. There was a buzz about the place and people seemed to be enjoying themselves. It was a new menu so we got to try some new items on the menu. Everyone at our table had something different. It was my Moms birthday and she had to have the... More

As many great meals as we've had in strip mall restaurants, it still amazes me that it can happen. Was in Raleigh this week, and stopped in Glenwood Grill on advice of friends. Cozy, exudes class. Decor very appealing. Being only a couple of hours from the coast insures great, fresh NC seafood. Our party dined on she-crab soups, crab... More

Our first trip to Glenwood Grill - found us sitting at the bar with no reservation at 5:30 p.m.! But not to worry~we enjoyed excellent service, excellent apps, a grand Sidecar and beer and dined on the entree special of panko trout with many accoutrements. Can't wait to go back (with or without a reservation).

Thank 4oglesbys
