Friendly, classy and artful restaurant. While the wait for our food to arrive was quite long, the atmosphere and fresh, carefully prepared food was well worth it.

Our table of 5 had a great evening, we love the themed evenings and think this was our 3rd year running for the annual steak night. The food is always so freshly prepared and just delicious, always so reliable, we've just recently loved 2 vegetarian evenings and as a meat eater I was enlightened by the beautiful dishes and choices we had on offer, every dish was delicious. Last night I really enjoyed the rump steak with the mouth watering triple cooked fries, and the creamy spinach was scrumptious too. Our service was great, very helpful and took care of us all evening. All in all a great evening as always! Can't wait for the next visit.

We have eaten at the Grove several times but this is the first theme night menu we've tried. The restaurant was tastefully decorated "with American touches" and the menu was well prepared. Starters included Waldorf Salad, Softshell Crab and Corn chowder with corn bread. Mains included various steaks, we had the New York Strip and swordfish. Desserts ranged from pecan pie to baked cheese cake. Great food, well cooked and exactly to our specifications. Their normal menu is good too. If the weather is nice try sitting out on the deck area. Pricing reflects the quality and choice of the food.

Went for breakfast today with girlfriends. Very busy but still got table ok. Friendly waitresses, had to wait a long time for food as busy, but the waitress apologised and the food was worth the wait as very good. Always like it there, only complaint was the wait, but we drank nice coffee and chatted so it was fine.

Last I went with my Husband and Parents to The Grove for their USA Steak Night! It was delicious! My
particular highlight was the the starter which was Corn Chowder with warm Corn Bread. It was amazing. I could have just eaten that and left happy!

The steaks were nice and in particular the creamed spinach side dish was really nice as at other well known steak restaurants I tend to find this overly salty. Not at The Grove!

Will be back for Tapas Night!
